Welcome back, local wanderers! Thank you for tuning in to Part 2 of my review of Spring House Health and Wellness. During my first visit with Fran
Relaxing Ionic Foot Bath Time
The foot bath took place in the FAR infrared sauna room which is a peacefully lit and calming room. The water was perfectly warm as I slid my tootsies into the plastic covered basin containing the detox system. They connected a strap to my wrist to assist the connection. I sat there for 30 minutes sipping on my wine and chatting. Occasionally I felt a slight
My water was a red-orange color with bits of sandy looking clay-like particles swirling about. They told me my “results” were not as bad I thought they were going to be. Not sure if they were just trying to make me feel better, but it worked! I’m only kidding as they are very honest and genuine people who would have told me if there was something terribly wrong with my water. More joking not aside, I feel like I don’t live the most healthy of lifestyles and this proved that I’m pretty average and I will totally take that all day long! The big benefit here is overall health and that’s incredibly important especially with the things we put in our bodies.
Once it was over I felt more refreshed and like I had done something good for my body. I would defiantly do this again, so much so that I have gone back a second time. That experience is coming in Part 3!
Hey You, Science!
Now for the science of it all! While I was sitting there knowing I was doing something positive for my well being, I couldn’t help but wonder about the science behind it all. I did some research and summarized that for you below. Most importantly I shared my resources (because of course I would!) so you can do more research on your own if you so desire.
What Is An Ionic Foot Bath
Ionic foot baths are growing in popularity as a relaxing way to remove harmful toxins and free radicals from your body. This includes impurities and chemicals found in the air you breathe and beauty products you use. The detoxification process pulls toxins and heavy metals out of your body through the pores on the bottom of your feet. The ions in the salted water of the foot bath, paired with an electrical current, act as a magnet for the negatively charged toxins that can be found in your body.
The main benefit of an ionic foot bath is to make your body’s pH more alkaline. Most importantly, it helps your body fight off diseases since those nasty things like an acidic environment. According to Dr. Otto Warburg, “No disease, including cancer, can exist in an alkaline environment.” (Please note that at the time of this publication, insufficient research has been performed to directly relate ionic foot baths to cancer prevention.) The larger takeaway is that it causes no threat to your health, but is believed to have health many health benefits including:
- Gastrointestinal Disorders
- Fungal and Yeast Infections
- Pain Relief
- Reduced Joint Stiffness
- Fewer Headaches
- More Energy
- Better Sleep
- Better Digestion
- Removed Toxins
- Decreased Swelling
- Improvements in Circulatory System
- Reduced Weight
- Improved Skin Conditions
- Emotional Improvements
An ionic foot bath can even remove parasites from your body. If you have parasites in your body and have a foot bath, they could be found in the water. Better in the water than your body! You can Google for photographic evidence. Fran has seen this happen first hand.
Toxins = Debris, Not Color
It bears mentioning that the changing color of the water during your foot bath is believed to be caused by the toxins leaving your body, but researchers indicate that is not the case. They relate the changing water color to a natural chemical reaction of the electricity and salt. However, you could see bits of debris and particles in your water which are the toxins. A large amount of color, however; can indicate where the toxins are coming from inside your body.
|Water Color||Where Toxins Came From In Body|
|Black||Liver, Alcohol, Asthma|
|Brown||Liver, Tobacco, Fat Waste|
|Green||Kidneys, Bladder, Urinary System, Feminine Problems|
|Light Green||Immune Systems|
|White w/ Bubbles||Lymphatic Systems, Skin Allergies|
|White w/ Particles||Flatulence, Candida|
My second foot bath contained small black flakes which could be related to alcohol based on the chart above and that is completely believable!
