The Ion Cleanse
We are living in the most polluted environment in the earth's known history. We are continually inhaling and assimilating residues from petrochemicals, plastics and pesticides that occupy cell receptor sites and block hormone utilization. Consider the following statistics:
· 1,600% increase in birth defects since 1980
· 250% increase in breast cancer since 1980
· 59% decrease in male sperm count since 1940
· 500% increase in cancer mortality since 1900
· 400% increase in heart disease since 1900
All of the above statistics are directly related to the increased exposure to petrochemicals, toxins, heavy metals and other chemicals in the environment. While no process or modality can guarantee the prevention of these conditions, it is logical to assume that an ongoing detoxification program - the act of minimizing toxic accumulations in the body - will reduce the incidence of chronic degenerative disease and improve overall quality of life.
Virtually all alternative healing approaches make liberal use of detoxification protocols.
Detoxifying the body has been a familiar modality to all ancient healing traditions, including Ayurvedic, Chinese and Native American, for thousands of years.
Because of poor diet and high stress, we tend to accumulate and store excessive quantities of waste products, such as diacetic, lactic, pyruvic, uric, carbonic, acetic, butyric, and hepatic acids.
“Acid wastes attack joints, tissues, muscles, organs, and glands causing minor to major dysfunction.”Avoiding disease and maintaining vitality, as we age, requires the maintenance of an alkaline environment throughout the body - which is virtually impossible to accomplish in our high-tech, high-stress, toxic society.
Several Ion Cleanse sessions, along with dietary modifications and detoxification have been shown to substantially reduce and even eliminate these conditions. Ion Cleanse sessions will support any body cleansing modality and
How Ionization Works
AC electricity is converted to low power DC electricity which flows through a patented electrode system that sits in the footbath. The electricity and the metal combine to split the water molecule into H+ and OH- ions. These ions travel through the body, neutralize oppositely charged particles and through powerful osmotic pressure pull those neutralized particles out of the body through whatever skin surface is in contact with the water.
Within seconds, of placing your feet in the water, millions of ions enter your body and begin to neutralize these tissue acid wastes. The particles of fat and mucous residues found in the water after bathing, reflect the wastes that have left the body during the 30 minute session.
Your body will feel lighter after the first session. You will think more clearly, have more energy and enjoy a greater sense of well-being.
The water will change colours during the treatment. The colour produced is dependent upon the body area being most affected by the detoxification process.
The ion cleanse process is designed to remove the buildup of toxins and cellular debris including medication, mucous, tobacco, yeast, blood clot material as well as heavy metals.
The areas of the body that benefit significantly from the ion cleanse procedure are: the liver, lymphatic system, kidneys, bladder, urinary track, female/male area, gallbladder and joints.
