Ion Cleanse Foot Bath

This detoxes your body through your feet. Your feet have around 4000 pores which is how the toxins are released out of your body.

A device called an array is placed into the foot bath and produces positive and negative ions into the water.  The ionized water splits into H+ and OH- ions that can enter the body through the 4000 large pores on the bottoms of our feet.  The circulatory and lymphatic systems transport the ions throughout the body.  These neutralize oppositely charged toxins in the cells that are normally slow to exit the body.  In this way, all the body’s organs can become energized and stimulated to function optimally.  The body then rids itself of these toxins through normal bodily processes.

I strongly recommend the “Ion Cleanse” brand.  Not all Ion cleanse footbaths are created equal.
