The best way to share how excited I am for our newest addition at My Healthy Beginning is simply showing you the pictures for proof! Who knew my social media accounts would blow up with comments after posting a before/after pics of mine and my son’s sessions in the AMD IonCleanse foot bath?!
The IonCleanse foot bath is a detox tool designed to reduce the toxic load we all deal with from our environment. Reducing that load on the body allows us to gain maximum benefit from other modalities and provides additional support for our immune system. The ionic charges in the water act as a magnet and free up toxins stored in the fat cells in the body.
I’m always looking for ways to improve my own health and that of my family, and to spread the ripple of real health throughout our community with inexpensive yet effective tools; and this foot bath is one of those tools. It is an incredibly comfortable, easy, relaxing, and affordable way to support healthy detox.
Benefits of the IonCleanse foot bath
Users have described their experience like so:
- less stressed
- clarity of thoughts
- less anxiety
- less aggression
- feeling in toes
- less joint pain
- increased energy levels
The results will vary from body to body, some people have a parasympathetic reaction and become more relaxed, others a sympathetic reaction and notice better function.*
Glyphosate is the active ingredient in Monsanto’s herbicide, Roundup. The chemical has gotten a great deal of attention regarding its potential impact on human and animal health. One study showed IonCleanse detox foot bath usage resulted in lower glyphosate levels in study participants as compared to the control group (48% reduction compared to 14% reduction for the control). Therefore, this method of detox appears to be a successful therapy in the excretion of glyphosate in humans.
Heavy metals reduction
One study showed sufficient data to demonstrate that clients using the IonCleanse by AMD had statistically significant reductions of toxic elements in their blood compared to those not using the foot bath. This included a 46% reduction in aluminum and a 24% reduction in cadmium.
How does the foot bath work
This foot bath is unique in that it provides thorough detox by creating negative and positive charged ions in the water that neutralize oppositely charged toxins. Most other systems only create negative ions. The IonCleanse foot bath is safe and non-invasive and studies have shown it works well alongside a nutritional component.
The color of the water may change when you put your feet in the water as toxins become mobilized and are released into the footbath. You may see varying shades of orange, green, or black depending on which of your meridians are releasing toxins. The meridians are based on acupuncture energy channels in the body. If the water is dark green = gall bladder meridian, brown = liver meridian, white = lymphatic system, orange =joints.
If you see the color of the water change before you put your feet in the bath, this may be due to chemicals in the water, salt, or the array plates. It starts to get exciting once your feet are in the bath, and typically within 5 – 10 minutes you’ll see the color change begin and can point to the chart for what area of the body is detoxing.
One study revealed the presence of urea, glucose, and creatinine molecules in the bathwater after the IonCleanse by AMD was used.
Additionally, some of the mobilized ions may remain in our bodies for up to 78 hours post-cleanse. During this time, the excretion organs that have detoxed may be more relaxed. The liver, kidney, colon, gallbladder, and skin may all work better and continue to excrete effectively after the cleanse is over.
It is essential to stay adequately hydrated to continue to flush out the toxins during any detoxification process.
How often should I do the IonCleanse?
10 – 12 sessions are recommended for maximum benefits. For best results schedule, 2 times per week for 6 weeks or to suit your schedule. Each session is 30 minutes.
Dogs are also exposed to toxins such as pesticides and herbicides used in grass treatments. If you can get your dog to stand in the bath, they will usually be happy to come back! They may stand or sit for 10 – 15 mins depending if they like water.
