“The system supposedly draws toxins out through the soles of the feet and the water changes color due to the release of toxic substances through the 2,000 pores of the soles of the feet. The water will change color and consistency - from orange, brown to black. Yellow is said to come from the kidneys and bladder; orange/brown from the joints; green/dark brown to black from the liver, gallbladder and/or bowel; and white from the lymphatic system,” according to Dr. Stephen Barrett of the California-based National Council Against Health Fraud Inc.

A similar method employs a special type of adhesive foot pads that are worn on the bottom of the feet overnight. During sleep, the pads allegedly remove toxins from the body that are expelled in the form of sweat. This is seen in the color change in the pads from white to gray-black.

Like the foot bath, the pads are advertised as effective against all kinds of contaminants including heavy metals, metabolic waste, microscopic parasites, mucous and even cellulite. They are also said to rid users of migraine, gout and a host of other diseases.

While “treatments” need to be done regularly and cost a lot, they may appear reasonable to unwary consumers who may think they are getting a bargain considering the number of diseases these devices can supposedly cure.

Unfortunately, the people behind these products are only after your money since the latter don’t work. Barrett said the skin is not a permeable membrane, meaning that substances placed on the outside of the feet won’t absorb substances circulating within the body.

“Even if they could, this would not remove ‘toxins’ from the body. Real detoxification takes place in the liver, which modifies the chemical structure of undesirable substances. The modified substances then circulate through the bloodstream to the kidneys, which filter them into the urine. The skin has no involvement in this process and is not an organ of detoxification. Sweat, which contains water and salt, helps maintain body temperature but does not play a significant role in toxin removal,” Barrett explained.

The change in the color of the water is due to electrolysis or a simple chemical reaction. The brown “toxins” are actually rust or oxidized iron generated by the corrosion of the iron electrodes that are placed in the basin.

In short, the change in the water color is due to increased iron content. This can be made regardless of whether or not feet are placed in it. Different colors can likewise be made by adding salt to the water and variations in the composition of the electrodes.

<quoted text> do you use white or brown vinegar?
I looked it up on the internet a while back. To do a "home" detox on you feet, try 2-3 cups cider vinegar, 4 to 6 tablespoons salt (epsom or sea salt was recommended most often, but some of the sites said table salt would do.) Find a pan that is large enough to place both of your feet into comfortably. Mix the vinegar and salt together in the pan. Add enough fairly warm water to the mixture to cover the tops of your feet. No more than a two gallons of water, or you will have to adjust the recipe. Soak feet for 15-20 minutes. Don't know if it actually detoxifies anything or not. But old time remedy books recommend soaking achy feet in warm epsom salt water. And soaking feet in warm vinegar water is just refreshing. Sounds harmless, and probably is. Google for yourself. You might want to put words like "home detox footbath" or "sea salt foot bath" or "epsom salt detox foot bath" in the search box. Good luck. Wish you "happy feet".

This is especially for Sucker-Punch you probably had the study from Dr. Guyton.

IonCleanse detoxification&#151;gettin g the issues out of tissues
Townsend Letter for Doctors and Patients, June, 2004 by Morton Walker, Randall Walker
The detoxification procedure with IonCleanse, usually takes 30 minutes for fourteen treatments administered every-other-day. Very sick patients are given up to 40 treatments, depending on how quickly symptoms subside. Pain goes away first. Once the footbath water stops changing color and stays clear, large amounts of toxin are no longer being dumped. More treatment is continued to give the array's positive and negative ions combined with ions in the water a chance to heal existing pathology at a cellular level," Dr. Kelley affirms. "Some color changes may come from the water source itself. Tap water derived from city pipes may have its own quantity of toxins. The extent of components in the water can be tested by running an array current through the water alone without one's feet in it. What shows up as a color change is bound to be the water's own baseline color. Other color changes and residual odors left in the water can then be judged as coming from the patients themselves.

"Getting the Issues Out of Tissues"

Assuring us that she can detoxify almost all aspects of a patient--even to emotional and mental dysfunctions arising out of stress--Dr. Karen Kelley refers to her IonCleansing therapy as "getting the issues out of tissues." Dumping toxins gives the body an opportunity to heal those specific body parts from which the toxins are arising.
"In my clinic we have observed some really wonderful results. Pain disappears fast, even after just one visit. In addition to the footbath technique of detoxification, this Holistic Healing Arts Center utilizes many adjunctive therapies, and they include electroacupuncture according to Voll (EAV), psychospiritual counseling, color therapy, sound therapy, a particular laser therapy offered by the same distributor, A Major Difference (AMD), who furnishes me with the IonCleanse[R] and much more," says Dr. Kelley.
"However, of all my treatment procedures, most rewarding for me personally are results that I witness from use of the IonCleanse array immersed in a water bath for the feet."

IonCleanse® foot baths are a pleasant, non-invasive way for most people to detoxify the body. As your feet soak in a tub of warm water, the computerized ionCleanse® unit runs through its alternating cycles generating millions of neutralizing ions that will be introduced to your body through this therapeutic, balancing footbath. After being absorbed, the ions get to work drawing toxic wastes back out into the water. While relaxing, soon the water begins to change color and consistency-from orange, brown, and green through to black-due to the release of toxic substances from the more than 2000 pores of the soles of each foot. There may even be lymphatic fat or mucous floating on the water

The IonCleanse® unit is a powerful tool used to aid in total body purification. AC electricity is converted to low power DC electricity which flows through a patented electrode system that sits in the footbath. The electricity and the metal combine to safely split the water molecule into H+ and OH- ions. As the power is drawn from the control unit, ions are created in the water. Ions are atoms or molecules that are carrying either a positive or negative charge. These ions travel through the body, neutralize oppositely charged particles and through powerful osmotic pressure pull those neutralized particles out of the body through whatever skin surface is in contact with the water.

The use of ionization devices is far more complicated than simply putting someone's feet in water and turning on the switch. The reason for A Major Difference's popularity and success is the clinical support it provides to both practitioner and individual on a continuing basis. They teach you how to use the unit safely and effectively; they are available during business hours to help guide you through your personal or practice challenges and they offer ongoing educational opportunities through seminars and professional training.

The IonCleanse® has five different session programs, three of which alternate between a positive polarity and a negative polarity. This "dual polarity" feature allows practitioners and individuals to select the best session for each user. Most of the other units on the market are "mono-polar" units; that is-they only produce a predominance of negative ions in the water. Users of these units may complain of dizziness, lightheadedness, or even nausea. You
must not get hooked to one of these so-called machines. They are out there everywhere.

This is not a healing of any kind of disease and makes not warranties to such statements. This machine is a health improvement called OSMOSIS. It simply neutralizes bacteria and removes toxins from the body.

Make sure your Practitioner or Technician has fully studied the machine as well as the body and the body’s PH before you place your feet in the tub of water.

This is absolutely one of the biggest Miracle’s ever for the Human Health, but at the same time, BEWARE of the machine and the person using it.

Anyone who wishes to condone this certainly has that right to keep a low PH, keep all those toxins but especially to keep all those worms in your body.

Dr. Guyton, in his textbook used to teach Medical Students, states,“We have known since 1930 that toxins in the body causes disease. The body must be in an alkalized state in order to be in optimum health.” Cancer or other bacteria cannot live in an alkalized body.

Enough said. The Ion-Cleanse Footbath simply alkalizes the body, raising the body PH by drawing toxins out and putting Negative Ions in.

Ion Cleanse or Ion Scam?

http://www.flishfun.com/blog/technology/ion-c...

Now, this is actually a known scam, as you can read here:

The water is being electrolyzed. This promotes rapid corrosion of the iron electrodes in the foot bath. Ferric oxides to the chemist, or rust to most everyone else is what turns the water yellow then brown. Insoluble iron precipitates are what form the scum on top too.

A couple of year ago, the Bad Science column in the Guardian looked at one of these devices. They concluded that none of the common waste products from the human body (creatine and urea) were appear in the “toxic” water. The only change they detected was a rise in iron levels.

This appears to be a way to scare people with rusty water. Inadvertant on the part of the operator or not, it’s a complete scam.

If that’s not enough to deter you, see this (read Aqua Detox as Ion Cleanse):

Thinking back to GCSE chemistry, it seemed likely to me that it was rust rather than toxins, since they have, after all, got a pair of metal electrodes in a salt water bath with a current passing across them. And so we set up, on a kitchen table, a bowl containing salt and water, with two metal nails attached to a car battery. And what do you know: our water goes brown too, with a nice sludge on top. Could this be the same brown as the Aqua Detox water?

Bravely I sent along my friend Dr Mark Atkins to have himself Aqua Detoxed. He took water samples from the bowl, which we sent off to the Medical Toxicology Unit at New Cross, south-east London. You can only imagine our excitement, especially as they charged us £200 for the analysis. And so – triumphant music – the water taken out before they switched their Aqua Detox machine on contained only 0.54mg per litre of iron (probably from the metal spoon); but afterwards it contained … 23.6mg/l. Our water, from our kitchen table setup, contained 97mg/l (and it was a bit browner).

But did it extract toxins?“Toxin” is classic pseudoscience terminology. Essentially, the Aqua Detox people are offering dialysis, through your feet. Urea and creatinine are probably the smallest molecules – call them “toxins” if you like – that your body gets rid of, in places like urine and sweat: if “toxins” were going to come out, anywhere, you’d expect those to come out, too. There was no urea or creatinine in the water before the Aqua Detox, and there was none in the water afterwards. Which means, I believe, that we win.

Your Aqua Detox is not what the rest of us are talking about. There are several names of machines out there that do not do the job, such as Chi, Aqua Detox, Liver Cleanse, Body Balance and many others as well. As said earlier, KNOW what you are doing. Those who are getting toxins removed and balancing their PH are the real winners.

i know someone who went to betty a few days ago a friend took her there at the time she did not know who she was going to see, that is the worst thing anyone could do to poor unsupecting people is take their s.s. money for a bunch of bullshit like this.
I hope the town of cave city check and make sure they have a right to do something like that. surely someone is checking on everything so the old people will not get ripped off by these people.

Sweat removes toxins better than any other process… so get to sweating!
By Christina | June 11, 2008

The body is limited in the way that it can release toxins it is storing. The methods by which we eliminate toxins are defecation, urination, perspiration and respiration. Perspiration is recognized by health practitioners worldwide as perhaps the most effective method of removing both difficult chemical and heavy metal toxins from the body.
Perspiration is created in the small sweat glands. These are organs located in the skin. Due to certain stimuli, they will secrete sweat which in turn helps with thermal regulation. As part of the physiological regulation of body temperature, the skin will begin to sweat at 37°C and the perspiration will increase rapidly with increasing skin temperature. An average sized man will excrete through the skin during 24 hours: 18 ounces of water, 300 grains of solid matter, and 400 grains of carbonic acid gas. Ordinarily, this constant release is not apparent, and the excretion is then called insensible perspiration.

A few of my family members went to Cave City, ky to have their feet detoxed. They were hooked up to a pad around the waist that heated up the blood. Sea Salt was added to the water and the machine turned on. They said the water turned different colors for each one of them. The shinny bubbles were parasites. The white bits in the water were worms, cancer, etc. The machine was pulling worms up to 3" out of their feet. They were told that once a 3' tapeworm was pulled out of a boy's feet. A friend of the family's son supposedly had severe worms, that when they get eyes he will then have diabetes. It was supposed to pull a large parasite from my mother's lung. Does anyone know who these people are giving the treatments. The lady claims the US paid Germany 60 million dollars to keep this machine from being sold in the US. Now my mom wants to buy a machine for $1200.00!! Any advice?

do a google search and you will see through this scam

well if the U.S. paid Germany $60 million to keep the machine out of the U.S.- then how did someone get one here?

can't believe how stupid people are to buy into this crap!

if it can pull worms out of your body, it must also suck your brains out as well
