Ionic detox is one of the most popular methods to get toxins out of their body. It’s cheap, simple and easy. The water changes color naturally because of the chemical reaction between the electricity and the salt water. Negatively charged toxins in your blood are drawn to the positive ions in the water, and vice versa. This is what causes the water to change color. The color gives an indication on the target organ that needs support. Ideally, a urine pH test should be done to have a baseline of the pH. In a perfect world, you want to have an alkaline pH.
The main point of these detoxes is to make the body’s pH more “alkaline,” but what exactly is the importance of being alkaline? An alkaline body is crucial to a person’s health. Diseases thrive in an acidic environment. So basically, the less acidic your body is and the more alkaline, the less prone you are to contracting a disease, like cancer. The Center for Disease Control reports that up to 85% of all illness is caused by toxins and pollutants in our bodies. The human body functions best when the ions are balanced at 80% negative and 20% positive. So how do we achieve this? Salt lamps, rolling on the grass first thing in the morning and detox foot spa as well. What we put into our body, such as the foods we consume, have either acidic or alkalizing properties. The more of the higher alkaline foods you can incorporate into your diet the better. An ionic detox, assist the alkalization process through the process of ionization, which removes “free radicals” from the body.
So, the crucial question: Does it work? The pH test says: Yes! Post detox pH levels were right in the middle of the spectrum, and noticeably more alkaline than before the detox. The detox continues to alkalize the body up to 48 hours after the treatment, via urination and sweat, which is an added benefit. One should not eat/drink acidic foods after a treatment, to help better facilitate the detox process. It’s important to aid in your body’s alkalizing process. You can’t just come in and ‘get fixed’. You have to take ownership in your health.
Eat a big range of fruit and vegetables to alkalize the body naturally. Is the ionic detox good for anybody? Yes! Most people can benefit from an ionic detox. It is especially good for those suffering from GI disorders, skin conditions, fungal or yeast infections, and cancer. The ionic detox is contraindicated for those who have a pacemaker and open sores or lesions on the feet. The benefit of this form of detox is that it is, “gentle and safe because it bypasses the gastro-intestinal system. Detoxing the body of pollutants, toxins, and chemicals that are being stored will have an instant impact on improving your health and well-being.
