What Is an Ionic Foot Detox?

Even if you’re the healthiest person you know, you’re still susceptible to toxins that find their way into your body from the environment and the foods you eat. Refined vegetable oils, canned fish and beans, and grilled meats are among the culprits that contribute to toxin buildup in your body. One way to help remove these toxins from your system is through an ionic foot detox bath. 

Here at Life Balance Medical Center in Roscoe, Illinois, Alecia Arn, DC, and our team of knowledgeable chiropractic and functional medicine practitioners take a holistic approach to helping you become the healthiest version of yourself.

Our single-use ionic foot bath systems allow you to experience the natural health benefits of detoxification through negative ions. So, what exactly is an ionic foot detox, and how often do you need one?

How an ionic foot detox bath works

Soaking your feet in a warm bath is a great way to rejuvenate yourself after a long day. When you add the component of negative ions, you also reap many associated health benefits. Essentially, an ionic foot detox works by splitting the water molecules into oxygen and hydrogen electrons.

Through an electrical current that’s safe to send through the water while your feet soak in it, the system ionizes water molecules into positive and negative ions. These ions attract and neutralize toxins and heavy metals of the opposite charge by pulling these contaminants out through your feet. After 30 minutes with your feet in an ionic foot detox bath, you should feel more relaxed, and without the harmful toxins and free radicals that may contribute to health problems. 

The many benefits of an ionic foot detox

In addition to removing heavy metals and toxins from your body, an ionic foot detox may also offer the following benefits:

Many people say they feel rejuvenated and relaxed after an ionic foot bath, as well.

Because certain types of diseases, including cancer, are linked to an overabundance of free radicals and toxins in the body, weekly ionic foot detox baths can help your body remove these harmful substances more efficiently. Once the ionic foot detox bath neutralizes the free radicals in your body, you’re better able to eliminate these substances naturally and easily through the body’s natural elimination processes, including urination and perspiration.

Is ionic foot detox for everyone?

If you’re seeking a natural way to rid your body of toxins, an ionic foot bath may be a helpful addition to your health and wellness plan. If you have diabetes or open sores on your feet, an ionic foot detox may not be a good solution for you. If you’re pregnant or breastfeeding, you may need to wait to schedule an appointment. Additionally, if you have a pacemaker or other electrical implant, ionic foot detox baths are generally not a good idea.
