Ionic Foot Detox is said to work by the principle of negative ion generation. But unlike other detox products, Ionic Foot Detox works through the ionization of water in a basin. When you put your feet in the tub the control unit ionizes the water and split it into H+ and OH- ions (and sometimes into H3O+ and H2O2 ions.) These ions are able to enter the body through the thousands of large pores of the feet and travel through the circulatory and lymphatic systems to the rest of the body. Ion cleansing can rid the body of heavy metals, reduces inflammation, get rid of yeast, help the liver, kidneys and also clean parasites. These are just some of the benifits of Ion cleansing.
