Ion Foot Detoxification

For years I have discussed my patient’s desire to cleanse toxins out of their systems.

Several approaches have been developed to facilitate the cleansing process; everything from diets, enemas, saunas, fasts, to homeopathy, water therapy, etc. One particular internal cleanse is very effective, yet very difficult to get patients to do. Eating nothing but vegetables for four weeks while taking herbs or shakes every hour and a half is not the easiest program to get patient compliance on. Another procedure, the use of Oxymega, an oxygen colon cleanser, is able to pull out some toxins from the lining of the intestines, yet stops short of doing a complete detox for the system. Until now a number of procedures had to be done to accomplish a full body detoxification. This series of procedures took time and diligence to accomplish.

In 2005 I heard of a new approach using ionized salt water in a footbath to pull toxins, contaminants, heavy metals, and debris out of the body through the skin. Being skeptical I went online and read as much as I could about the procedure. The more I read the less skeptical I became. It works by basic polar attraction. Positive ions attract negative ions like a magnet. The body begins a flushing of the ions from the system that match up with their opposites in the ionized bath. This flushing releases wastes through the skin painlessly. Many feel a sense of relaxation when the procedure is done and get the thorough night’s rest they have not experienced in some time. For some, they receive a boost of energy as well.


As a few patients, friends, and family extolled the benefits they received from the use of this technology elsewhere, I began to see the benefits they discussed and witnessed in their own health. I purchased a machine for our office. As usual, my most sensitive patients offered the best test of its effectiveness. Neither they nor I were disappointed.

We have seen in the last month a number of patient improvements including help for chronic pain, energy flow, migraines lessened, and a greater sense of well being. Several studies that I found also support the improvements we observed. One study showed an increase of muscle strength while another measured the amount of heavy metals in the residual water after the ionic footbath was completed.

To allow patients the opportunity to experience this technology for themselves, we offer the bath for $30 in the office. We offer for those who are short on time an opportunity to take the machine home for a month and detoxify the whole family. The convenience of being able to take it home is a great plus, and there is a $10 savings for every detoxification foot bath used at home. Please contact our office about the details, we would love to help your family cleanse as soon a possible. Many have felt results with the 1st bath. Typically, a complete cleanse, requires a series of sessions over a 2 month period of time. This new tool offers improved health to our patients while allowing ease of use. It is relatively inexpensive for a series of 10 to 12 treatments.


The footbath can rebalance energy meridians through the bio-charge. The complex energy fields of the unit permeate the water, realigning a body’s energy field. Many of the benefits of the unit can be attributed to the “rebalancing” of these energy lines allowing a body mass to function better. This action results in the initial purging of toxins and nucleic waste product kept and/or generated within the cells and surrounding membrane. Following the purge there is a re-correction of any abnormal deterioration within the body that has been caused by illness, injury, and viral and/or any other life experience, excluding birth defects.

The footbath is currently the only method for creating a bio-charge that is both safe and compatible with living matter. Water is the obvious medium used because up to 80% of the human body is water, as is two thirds of the planet. Water is an active substance, so when water comes into contact with something, the frequency of what it contacts is integrated into its own frequency structure and thus becomes its signature. When you immerse a body mass into water, the frequency is instantly added to the water as a “memory”.

The water actually interacts with a compound electrical current and a compatible magnetic field structure to produce the needed bio-charge. You will witness the stunning cleansing process before your own eyes. This process can simply be described as “sweating” in water.

The unit is self-contained and is used during bathing to re-align, balance and enhance the bio-energy that is stored within the body and utilized by our cells.

Just like bathing in a natural hot spring. You place your feet in the convenience of a warm footbath, or indulge yourself in the luxury of a full body bath, then relax while it does the work. All you need is just 20-40 minutes every second or third day, a container of water and access to a power outlet.

Use only water in your bath. Do not use any additives such as soaps, detergents, oils, etc.

Do not have more than one person in the bath at any one time.

Do not drink dirty bath water however; give it to your plants or bio-charge water separately for drinking.

The unit must not be used by people who have Pacemakers, anyone who has received an organ transplant or by pregnant women and people who use prescription drugs.

Do not wear a watch, talk on a cell phone or use a computer while doing a footbath.

Once you start using the ion bath your natural Chi energy levels will start to rise allowing you to enjoy a more balanced, healthful, quality of life.

Toxic chemicals found in umbilical cord blood

Transcript Statehouse Bureau

BOSTON — A group of scientists and medical experts Thursday called for broader research on the effects of toxic chemicals on newborn babies in the wake of a national study that found dozens of possibly harmful chemicals in human umbilical cord blood.

Unborn babies are potentially being exposed to fire retardants, methylmercury, and pesticides that may cause abnormal development or increased cancer risks, environmental advocates warned.

The Environmental Working Group, a Washington, D.C., public interest organization, released a study of the umbilical cord blood of 10 randomly selected newborns in 2004 where nearly 300 types of chemicals were detected.

Scientists until recently believed that fetuses were protected from toxic chemicals by the placenta, the organ that receives nutrients from the mother’s blood and filters out waste. However, the study’s authors, along with environmental advocates, believe that the umbilical cord also carries industrial chemicals and other pollutants to the fetus.

“These are not naturally occurring chemicals. They’re ones we made up,” said Dr. Sean Palfrey, past president of the Massachusetts chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics. “These substances are obviously in the parent’s blood and bodies for some reason. The body doesn’t know how to deal with these substances and can’t secrete them.”

The Environmental Working Group study found traces of a total of 287 chemicals in the umbilical cord blood of the 10 newborns, including some chemicals that have been banned in the United States for decades. Each newborn had an average of 200 of the chemicals present, according to the study.

The Environmental Working Group said it obtained the umbilical cord blood samples from the American Red Cross, and that the analysis was done by two Canadian research labs. The chemical analysis found polychlorinated biphenyls, or PCBs, which were used as lubricants and industrial insulators until they were banned in 1976. The chemical, which can persist in river sediments and the tissue of fish and some mammals for decades, is considered by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to be a “probable human carcinogen.”

The study also found mercury, which comes from emissions from coal-fired power plants and can harm brain function. Some of the blood samples also contained DDT, a pesticide banned in 1972 after it was found to cause unacceptable risks to human health.

In addition, the study found common consumer product chemicals used to resist heat, water and oil, such as for nonstick cookware and stain-resistant carpets.

Some byproducts that are produced after the burning of medical or municipal waste, including dioxins and furans, were found in the cord blood as well.

Joel Tickner, an assistant professor at the University of Massachusetts at Lowell School of Health and the Environment, said that while the Environmental Working Group used a small sample size to study, the number was still “scientifically relevant.” He added that the troubling part was that the newborns were randomly selected.

He said the study confirms a failure by both the state and federal governments, and the chemical manufacturing industry, to adequately study the use of these industrial chemicals.

“The big question is do we want to make the mistakes that we’ve already made. What can we learn from those mistakes to make safer chemicals?” Tickner said. “UMass Lowell has some of the most innovative and cutting edge research on green chemistry, sustainable plastic and biomaterials in the world. We are ready in this state to make the alternatives, it just needs a government and industrial commitment to do it.”

Tickner said parents can take steps to prevent harm to their newborns by eating organic foods and not using the common household and flame-retardant products found in the study. However, he added that “individual choices can only go so far,” and that parents can do little about industrial chemical pollutants.

Palfrey said that while previous studies have found chemical exposure in newborns, none had searched for the number of chemicals included in the Environmental Working Group study.

He added that while the dangers of chemical exposure need to be further studied, it’s clear that the vital organs of fetuses and young infants are “especially vulnerable to harm” from hazardous chemicals.

The Massachusetts House and Senate both voted Thursday to restore $250,000 to the state budget for fiscal 2006 for the Toxics Use Reduction Institute at UMass Lowell, funds that had been cut by Gov. Mitt Romney. Tickner said the funds would pay for research into safer alternatives to toxic substances.
