IonCleanse® Questions & Answers
Recall the way your body felt the last time you stood next to a waterfall or walked along the beach with the waves breaking at your feet. You breathed deeper into your lungs and abdomen; your brain cleared and the pains in your joints subsided. You felt relaxed and at peace with the world. These invigorating reactions were caused by the ionization of trillions of water molecules as they crashed to the earth.
How Does the IonCleanse® Work?
AC electricity is converted to low power DC electricity which flows through a patented electrode system that sits in a footcath. The electricity and the metal combine to split the water molecule into H+ and OH- ions. These ions travel through the body, neturalize 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.
Why Detoxify the Body?
We are living in the most polluted environment in the earth’s known history. We are continually inhaling and assimilating residues from petrochemicals, plastics and pesticides that occupy cell receptor sites and block hormone utilization. Consider the following statistics:
- 1,600% increase in birth defects since 1980
- 250% increase in breast cancer since 1980
- 59% decrease in male sperm count since 1940
- 500% increase in cancer mortality since 1900
- 400% increase in heart disease since 1900
All of the above statistics are directly related to the increased exposure to petrochemicals, toxins, heavy metals and other chemicals in the environment. While no process or modality can guarantee the prevention of these conditions, it is logical to assume that an ongoing detoxification program- the act of minimizing toxic accumulations in the body – will reduce the incidence of chronic degenerative disease and improve overall quality of life.
Virtually all alternative healing approaches make liberal use of detoxification protocols. Detoxifying the body has been a familiar modality to all ancient healing traditions, including Ayurvedic, Chinese and Native American, for thousands of years.
