What do you do?
All you do is put your feet in the water and relax for 20-30 minutes.This foot bath draws out toxins from the body through the soles of your feet. The water will change color due to the release of toxic substances through the 2000 pores on the sole of each foot. With each session the water may look different depending on what toxins are present in the body and on what part of the body is releasing toxins during the session. Ion cleansing foot baths are a pleasant, non-invasive way for most people to detoxify the body.

What do the water colors mean?
The water changes color as a result of the interaction of the toxins from the body and the metals from the copper array.
The following colors tend to correlate with the listed areas of the body as follows:
Dark Yellow, Orange, Brown: Liver & Joints
Green: Gall Bladder
Yellow: Urinary tract
White: Lymphatics & Yeast
Blue: Kidney
Black Flecks: Heavy metals
Red Flecks: Blood clots.

After treatment is completed, patients will see a dramatic change in the color and consistency of the water in which their feet have been soaking, which is a result of pollutants being removed from their body's systems.

What is a Detox Diet?
Although detox is primarily thought of as a treatment for alcohol or drug dependence, the term is also used to refer to diets, herbs, and other methods of removing environmental and dietary toxins from the body for optimum health. There are many different types of detox diets.

Generally, a detox diet is a short-term diet that:
* Minimizes the amount of chemicals ingested (for example, by the use of organic food).

* Emphasizes foods that provide the vitamins, nutrients, and antioxidants that the body needs for detoxification.

* Contains foods, such as high fiber foods and water, that draw out and eliminate toxins by increasing the frequency of bowel movements and urination.

Why do People go on a Detox Diet?
A growing body of research suggests that many of the chemicals we ingest daily through food, water, and air can become deposited in fat cells in our bodies. A diet that lacks certain nutrients may also impair our natural ability to detoxify chemicals, which further leads to their build-up in the body. The cumulative load, called the "body burden", is thought to lead to illness and has been linked to hormonal imbalance, impaired immune function, nutritional deficiency, and an inefficient metabolism. Signs are thought to include indigestion, bad breath, fatigue, poor skin, and muscle pain. Some private labs, offer tests that assess urine, stools, blood, and liver function. These tests are not standard medical tests and many medical doctors do not recognize them or consider them valid.

Benefits of a Detox Diet
People often report improved energy, clearer skin, regular bowel movements, improved digestion, and increased concentration and clarity after a detox diet.

Who Shouldn't Try a Detox Diet?
Anyone considering a detox diet should consult a qualified health professional and/or their medical doctor first. Pregnant or nursing women or children shouldn't go on a detox diet. People with anemia, eating disorder, diabetes, kidney disease, thyroid disease, autoimmune disease, cancer, terminal illness, certain genetic diseases, and other chronic conditions shouldn't try this diet or should do so only under the supervision of their primary care provider. It is not intended for alcohol or drug detoxification.

Common side effects
Headache within the first few days of starting the detox diet, often due to caffeine withdrawal. For this reason, practitioners often suggest gradually decreasing the amount of caffeine prior to starting a detox diet. In addition, some people opt to take time off work to begin a detox diet or start the diet on the weekend. Other side effects include excessive diarrhea, which can lead to dehydration and electrolyte loss. Constipation may occur if people consume excess fiber without also increasing their fluid intake. Other side effects can include tiredness, irritability, acne, weight loss, and hunger. Any worsening of symptoms or new symptoms that occur during a detox diet should prompt a visit to a qualified health professional.

Important! If a detox diet is continued for a longer time, it may result in nutrient deficiencies, particularly protein (some detox diets omit animal products) and calcium.

You may be suffering from lack of iron, but ensure that only correct doses are included in the diet. Since the liver has no method by how the iron can be eliminated, it can be accumulated in the tissues, organs and the liver. An excess of iron can lead to complexities in this body part with the disease known as cirrhosis.
