What is an Ion Foot Cleanse?
The Ion Foot Cleanse uses your feet as a conduit to remove unhealthy toxins from your body by generating ions. Ions are charged atoms that have gained or lost an electron and create a magnetic field capable of neutralizing oppositely charged particles. These neutralized particles are pulled out of the body through the skin called osmosis, or the movement of particles through the membrane from a lower concentration to a higher concentration. The array is placed in the water creating a higher concentration and drawing out the toxins.
By sitting with your feet immersed in warm water for a half hour, the body is stimulated through the release of positive and negative ions.
The session activated the body’s natural healing system and allows the body to rebalance and restore its natural healing energy levels.
Doing an Ion Foot Cleanse in conjunction with a massage, adding exercise, maintaining a healthy diet and reducing stress, helps provide an efficient way to maintain long-term wellness. As a result of using the Ion Foot Cleanse, you will have a greater feeling of well being.
The recommended amount for doing Ion Foot Cleanses is once every other day, 10 to 14 sessions.
What is colon hydrotherapy?
Colon Hydrotherapy, also known as a colon irrigation, high enema, colonic lavage or colonics, colon hydrotherapy is a gentle flushing of waste from the large intestine or colon with filtered, purified water.
What does a colonic do? Waste material, especially material that has been in the colon for a long time, breaks down and becomes toxic. These toxic byproducts are reabsorbed by the blood and circulate throughout the body, making us feel ill, fatigued or weak. This buildup impairs the absorptive, assimilative function of the colon, and inhibits muscular action, contributing to further sluggishness and constipation.
What should be done before and after the session? Eat lightly, (salad, soup etc.) and don’t drink anything at least an hour before your session. After your session, resume your day as you normally would.
Will I experience any intestinal discomfort or fatigue after the cleansing? Usually not, but since the cleansing will stir up a lot of old debris and toxins, you might experience some minor nausea or fatigue. If any discomfort occurs, it is recommended to rest and apply a warm heating pad to the abdomen. If you wish, a mild vegetable broth or peppermint tea is usually soothing at this time. Any discomfort will usually pass within 24 hours.
Does a colonic wash out intestinal flora? Yes, a colonic will wash out intestinal flora, but taking acidophilus subsequent to a colon cleansing is beneficial, because it helps to improve the bacterial balance in the colon.
How long does a session take? About 45 minutes to 1 hour.
Is there any possibility of bacterial or viral contamination from prior use of the colon hydrotherapy machine? Modern colon hydrotherapy machines utilize pre-sterilized, disposable hoses and speculums. These disposables are used only once during a single therapy session. Properly administered, there is absolutely no danger of contamination.
How many colonic will I need? This depends on the condition of your colon, overall health.
How does the health of our colon affect our total overall health? We experience better health and well being when the colon is clean and functioning normally. When the colon is congested with stagnant waste, poisons back up into the system and pollute the inner environment. This is called autointoxication which literally means “self-poisoning”. All of the body’s tissues are affected by the autointoxication. There are many contributing factors to autointoxication. A toxic bowel, improper diet, insufficient exercise, stress, overeating and ignoring the “call for nature” can lead to bowel problems. Autointoxication can be a causative factor in numerous serious diseases and is considered by many to be the underlying reasons for disease. The colon is the largest perpetrator of disease of any organ in the body and is said to be the initiator of 80 percent of all critical illnesses.
