What is Detoxification of the Body?

The concept of internal cleansing and detoxification has been around since the time of the Romans. The saunas and baths were an early form of detoxification. The problem of "toxicity" has grown as the number and quantity of poisonous compounds in our air, water, and food supply have steadily increased. There is a substantial growth in research and studies of the significance of acute and chronic exposure to toxins and the role they play in our health. Disease, surgeries, and many medical procedures leave the body weak and toxic. Heavy metals, particularly oxidized fats, unassimilated proteins, cholesterol deposits, uric acid, plaque, lactic acid, and the vast array of chemicals that pervade our water, air and food, attach themselves in ionized form to joints, organs, arteries, nerves and tissues, disrupting their function and creating an environment for disease, allergies and immune system breakdowns.

The human body is electric because our cells are electric. Disorders and diseases of the body have vibration frequencies that are incompatible with healthy cells; thus they disrupt the cells' natural oscillation and polarity, and produce free radicals. Free radicals are charged ion particles and cause premature aging and disease. This disruption creates imbalance and chaos within each affected cell. Bioenergetics is important because the amount of energy a person has and the balance of that energy contributes to the capacity of the body to: problem-solve, do work, detoxify. When cells are fully charged, they have more oxygen and are in a state of electrical balance, which results in a feeling of a healthy attitude, vitality, well-being, and enables the body to heal itself. This balance increases our sense of awareness and our sense of the mind/body/spirit connection.

The body uses four primary organs to eliminate toxins from our system: bowels, urinary tract, lungs and skin. Most people think of the bowels and urinary tract for elimination, but not the lungs and skin.

Detoxification is a two-part process: 1) loosening or freeing the toxins from the body's tissues, and 2) expelling the toxins from the body. Many detoxification products accomplish the first step in the process of loosening toxins from the body's tissues. These include lemon juice, apple juice, Calli tea, chlorophyll, juice fasts, apple cider vinegar, homeopathic remedies, chelation therapy, and massage. The second step, ridding the body of the loosened toxins, can be accomplished through therapies which include colonics, enemas, saunas, increased roughage, charcoal and bentanite.

The non-invasive ionCleanse foot bath encompasses both parts of the process during each session.
