What is a typical footbath detox session?
While immersing your feet in the water, positive and negative ions are emitted by the footbath system. This reenergizes the body and red blood cells. This type of system is described as a Detoxification machine because the response of a rebalanced body is to excrete any excess toxins via the kidneys, liver, bowels and skin. This process not only occurs DURING a detox footbath session, but also AFTER a treatment. The footbath triggers the body’s lymphatic system and continues to detoxify for the next 24 to 48 hours. The entire process takes approximately 30-40 minutes for adults and is completely safe to use.
Studies show that an overall balancing effect occurs coupled with a significant increase in the number of negative ions. Ions are atoms, or molecules, that have lost or gained electrons [Free radicals are unpaired electrons]. If the atoms or molecules lose electrons, they become positively charged ions. If they gain electrons, they become negatively charged ions. The ionic technique of cleansing through feet provides a full-body purge of all vital organs, resulting in reduced menopause symptoms, menstrual cramps, sexual health problems, skin problems, acne, sleep problems, restlessness, stress, toothaches, wrinkles, aches and pains and yeast infections. The internal cleansing can also assist in faster disease healing and injury recovery.
Because of poor diet and high stress, we tend to accumulate and store excessive quantities of toxins and overall waste products. During a 30-minute session, the ions enter your body and begin to neutralize these tissue acid wastes. This process is called reverse osmosis.
What is the water’s role in the body?
Since the body is composed of 70% water, it is the perfect way to address wellness for the whole body. The benefits of detoxifying in this manner is similar to walking in the sand along the beach, only more powerful because your feet are in direct contact with the ions being created in the water. Water has an almost perfect balance of positive and negative ions. When you immerse a body mass into water, the vibration frequency of the water will affect the vibration frequency of the body due to the interaction of the magnetic and electrical field. It's an exceptional natural healing tool. It is a painless and relaxing process, and unlike prescription drugs, there are no harmful side effects.
How long does the water module last?
Each Array water modules last between 90-120 sessions. However, longevity of the water module depends on the type of water source used for the footbath. For maximum durability, the water modules are made from medical materials and do not contain lead or copper.
How often can you use the detox footbath system on yourself?
We recommend that users only conduct a Detox session every 48 to 72 hours. This resting and repair period gives the user’s body a chance to recover and rejuvenate from the detox session. It is important to note that the body continues to detox during the 48-72 hour detox period following a footbath session. Using the system too much may cause fatigue and is not recommended if one is trying to achieve maximum results. Give your body a break! It needs some time to assimilate this boost of energy to the cellular system - the source of ALL energy
Can people with Diabetes use the system?
Yes, but it is recommend that users with diabetes begin their detox protocol by using the system at a reduced power rate coupled with a decrease in session length. 10-minute duration is recommended for the first session. If the user feels rejuvenated, then they can slowly begin to increase the time and rate over a period of 30-45 days. Can women whom are pregnant, those with a heart pacemaker, an organ transplant or epilepsy use the system? No, the detox footbath systems are not recommended for pregnant woman, anyone with a heart pacemaker, an organ transplant or epilepsy.
Why is it beneficial to use a foot massager before and after your Detox session?
A foot massager helps to further stimulate the lymphatic system and circulation. Further, the massager helps to relax the user so that they may better absorb the energy of the Detox session.
Can I use the Footbath Unit while taking prescription drugs?
As a rule of thumb, it is fine for people that use daily prescription drugs to use the detox footbaths as long as they have consulted with their health professionals prior to use. For people on life-sustaining medications, we strongly recommend that you always consult with your health professional, possibly finish your course of medication, and then try the Sea Ionic systems.
Why do I feel tired after a footbath session? Why did I experience a boost of energy after a footbath session?
There are occasional reports of users feeling tired or actually full of energy after a footbath. Everybody is different and the results truly depend on the state of your personal Health & Wellness. For those who might feel tired, it is recommended to use the footbath unit in the evening before rest. Conversely, if you feel full of energy after a footbath, it is best to begin sessions in the morning.
Why is our Footbath safer than competitor products?
The water in the bath and the detailed configuration of the array plates ensures that the actual electrical current only flows between the narrowly spaced plates and serves to produce these tiny water bubbles that then safely penetrate the skin of the feet. The footbath is safe for the body because there is no actual current injected into the body as with other modalities.
Why is it a good idea to disinfect the Array after each bath?
The Array has been designed purposely to make sure that only the metal comes in contact with the bath water during the footbath. Further, the metal surfaces that come in contact with the water during the footbath have a substantial current going through the surface. This contributes to keeping the surface clean and free of the various toxins that are eliminated through the skin during the footbath.
However, it is an additional safety precaution to dip the footbath Array into a 91% alcohol jar for several minutes after each bath. This will ensure that no biological toxins remain on the array before it is stored in prevision for the next bath.
Does the rust on the plates cause any harmful side effects?
We highly recommend cleaning the Array after each footbath. The Arrays should be cleaned using the brush supplied with the array. Not doing so will decrease the effectiveness of the Array over time. However, rust is a very old component of seawater and it has lost all of biological activity, in other words it is biologically inert. Therefore, it will not harm the user if there is a small amount (only) of rust. This will not decrease the effectiveness of the Array.
Why is it important to drink water after a footbath?
The action of the footbath is to displace the old lymph either back into the footbath water, or up towards the immune system, for disposal through the kidneys.
The lymph that is pushed towards the immune system for disposal needs to be processed by the immune system. The immune system relies heavily on water that contains alkaline (negatively charged) minerals that supply oxygen to “burn” the unwanted components in the old lymph (which is acidic, positively charged) before they can be recycled by the kidneys.
So, it is extremely valuable to replenish the supply of optimally hydrating water soon after, or even during, the footbath.
Why is the color change of the bath water considered unimportant with the footbaths?
The footbath has been designed to optimize the surface properties of the array for circulating the sea minerals contained in footbath concentrate. Once optimized, the majority of the toxins are pushed through the lymph of the body for elimination through the kidneys.
At this point, the toxins released in the footbath water are no longer the most important action of the footbath. Therefore, some users will see a color change, but most users will not. This of course does not affect the effectiveness of the footbath in any way. On the contrary, the careful design of the concentrate and the Array, themselves, contribute to a greater effectiveness of the footbath.
What kind of water should be used in the footbath?
Water from a well is the best solution. However, tap water, bottled spring water, or filtered water will work fine. Please keep in mind that you don't want to use distilled, softened, or reverse-osmosis water sources since the mineral content has been removed from this type of water. This lack of mineral greatly reduces the power of the footbath Detox System.
Why does the water color change?
The color change in the water can be attributed to a multitude of variances including, but not limited to: the water source quality used in the footbath; the type of lotions or other personal care items used on one’s feet; the user’s sweat, etc.
Is it possible to see a color change without feet in the water?
The answer is Yes! Even with no feet in the water, as opposed to having feet in the water, users will notice an orange/brown color. This color can be witnessed in varying degrees depending on the water source. This is normal with the footbath Detox System because the system’s strength tends to cause more of a reaction when it comes into contact with the impurities from the water source.
What are the footbath colors? How do I know the system is working?
We do not promote the use of color chart analysis. There is no scientific evidence backing up any type of color chart analysis. It is important to note that what is coming out of the body is microscopic and may not always be visible. Further, the true detoxification occurs in the 48-72 hours following a detox session.
Why does the footbath water turn black in color?
The surface properties of the array are optimized to keep the array functioning at peak efficiency during its service life. Research proved that this could be accomplished by allowing the array to emit a steady stream of very
pure iron oxide-suspended particles into the water, while the current passes through. Such particles are quite biologically inert and can easily be washed off the feet at the end of the footbath session with the Zen Spritzer.
However, they ensure that the surface of the plates doe not acquire any undue contamination that would decrease the effectiveness of the bath.
