We are offering Ionic Detox Foot Baths at Mon Sanctuaire

Whether you are in good health and just want to feel extraordinary, or if you are currently suffering from chronic problems or an undiagnosed illness, regular foot detox sessions can improve your overall health and well being.

When the body is able to eliminate toxins and metabolic waste, then inflammation, edema, and swelling all decrease, allowing the body to repair itself and reduce pain within muscles and joints.

The Ionic detox foot bath system helps to eliminate toxins and gives the body a boost.  It is a positive step to sustaining good health. Through proper detoxification, we can significantly reduce the accumulation of toxins, prevent diseases, slow down the aging process and enjoy a disease free, longer and healthier life.

Amongst all of the detoxification methods in practice, the Ionic Detox Foot Spa, is probably the best method.

Client testimonials

“I have had constipation problems and since I started the foot soaks, I have seen an immediate result. I am regular now. My joints feel better and there is less inflammation. Also, my cellulite is less visible. I can’t tell you how badly I felt because of my cellulite and I’m impressed with the multiple improvements I have seen.” – KB Arlington, VA

 

“I tried the detox in the afternoon and my feet (I have neuropathy) and body felt really good. In the evening I went for a long 1 hour walk. I am usually reluctant to walk most evenings because my feet and body hurt so much and the daily pain takes so much out of me. After the detox I felt like a million bucks. I felt so much better, even the next day and evening as well. The great feeling wore off slowly as the week progressed. I had the second detox treatment and a week later I still felt really good! After 3 or 4 detox treatments I can do things more normally without the extreme pain and weariness I get from the pain. I look forward to it each week and to knowing my wellness will progress.”

Why Detox?

Our modern environment leaves us exposed to more contamination causing imbalance than any other time in history. Stress, toxins, heavy metals, foods we eat and electromagnetic pollution from mobile phones and computers leave most of us out of balance which can leave the mind & body feeling depleted. Our blood, tissues and organs all act like filters. As you expect filters need regular cleaning so do our bodies. In fact our body is the number one expert at detoxifying however we don’t recognize what our bodies need for this process. A combination of clean water, clean chemical free natural foods in moderation, exercise and mental relaxation is a fantastic start. However in a modern lifestyle we tend to get stuck in achieving this. When we haven’t  been detoxing naturally we become more and more toxic which can lead to all sorts of problems mentally and physically.

 How does it work?

The principle of the Ionic Detoxification system is to use micro current to facilitate the movement or transfer of ions in and out of cells and restore the balance of positive and negative charges of cells. This painless, non-invasive micro current opens up the pathways to the vital ion channels.

The “boost” or energy the body receives from the ion water module (array), which sits down in the water during a treatment, allows this amazing detoxification process to occur.

As water is ionized it is split into H+ and OH- ions (and sometimes into H3O+ and H2O2 ions), similar to the way water cascading over a waterfall becomes ionized. These ions are then able to enter the body through the 4,000 large pores of the feet. Then the circulatory and lymphatic systems transport the ions throughout the body.

These ions neutralize oppositely charged toxins in the cells that are normally slow to exit the body. In this way, all the body’s organs, including the liver, intestines, kidneys, lungs, skin, and immune system, can become energized and stimulated to function optimally. The body then rids itself of these toxins through its normal processes of urination, defecation and sweating.

Health Benefits of Ionic Detoxification

In a 2009 survey, 126 users of ionic detox systems were asked what specific health benefits they or their clients received from using ionic detox foot bath systems. Their answers included: pain relief (42), including less joint stiffness, fewer headaches, less knee pain, less foot pain, less general muscle pain and more, increased energy (29), improved sleep (23), improved digestion (10), toxin reduction (9), decreased swelling (9), circulatory system improvement (9), reduced weight (8), skin improvements (8), emotional improvements (5), respiratory improvements and much more.

When the body is able to eliminate toxins and metabolic waste, then inflammation, edema, and swelling all decrease, allowing the body to repair itself and reduce pain within muscles and joints.

Ionic detox has been known to:

  • Remove toxins, free radicals and body waste products that can cause health problems (In an Aug. ’04 study by Carlos A. Lopez-Moreno, MD, there was a significant deposit of urea, creatinine and glucose in the foot basin in 12 patients with chronic illnesses.)
  • In a 2008 study by Center for Research Strategies (crsllc.org), 31 participants underwent ionic detox two times per week for 12 weeks. The amount of aluminum and arsenic in their blood was measured before and after the 12 weeks. The average blood aluminum level decreased by 46% from 79.8 ppb (parts per billion) to 43.1 ppb. The average blood arsenic level decreased 24% from 4.6 ppb to 3.5 ppb.
  • In a 2002 study by Doctor’s Data in St. Charles, IL, there was an average increase in toxic metals found in the foot basin from nine independent sessions. Here is a list of metals that increased in concentration: Copper: 905%, Aluminum 339%, Lead 233%, Iron 174%, Manganese 140%, Antimony 128%, Cadmium 119%
  • Raise pH levels. Approximately 95% of people experience a state of acidity in which their blood pH is lower than 7.45, indicating an excess of hydrogen ions. This makes an ideal breeding ground for worms, parasites, microorganisms and other critters that lower body function and cause disease.
  • Inactivate viruses, bacteria, yeast and fungus
  • Relieve pain and tension including headaches
  • Purify the blood and lymph
  • Increase peripheral circulation
  • Stimulate and balance the immune system
  • Enhance nutrient absorption
  • Reduce inflammation and unwanted fluid retention
  • Help clear up skin
  • Assist in weight loss
  • Slow down aging and improve body flexibility
  • Quicken recovery time from disease or injury
  • Increase oxygen in the body
  • Rejuvenate and energize your whole body
  • Improve sleep

Why Does the Water Change Color?

Ionic Foot Bath DetoxMany sellers of ionic detox foot bath systems have misinformed their customers that the colors they see in the water are toxins that have exited the body. This is mostly false. During the session, the water in the basin will always change to a brown/ orange color due to the electrolytic reaction involving the array, salt, water, minerals and impurities in the water. But when feet are in the water, the colors are also affected by oils being released from the sebaceous glands, the dead skin cells and the user’s own acidity/ alkalinity. Some of the neutralized toxins will also exit the body back out through the pores of the feet due to osmosis. An unusual amount of a particular color may indicate that a person has accumulated toxins in certain areas or from certain conditions and that ionic detox is helping those areas.

Always remember that the presence of negative ions in the body mainly helps the body rid itself of toxins through its normal processes of urination, defecation and sweating. Only some toxins leave the body through the pores of the feet. Therefore, color changes in the water should not be the main focus. Instead, focus on how you feel. For additional proof regarding overall health improvements from ionic detox, free radical test kits may be utilized.

 Ionic Foot Detox Treatment Protocols

It is recommended that the average healthy adult undergo 30 minute sessions one to two times per week for 6 weeks. Then following up with a  maintenance program of 1 session every 10 days is recommended.

To prevent over-activation of the digestive organs do not eat or drink anything during the session.

After the session, do not move rapidly. Take 3-5 minutes of rest and get up slowly. However, if you become hungry or thirsty, eat or drink 15-20 minutes after the session.

As you can see, there’s a huge range of potential benefits to using detox foot spas, and a large majority of individuals who use an ionic foot detox bath see immediate results.
