As I was getting my hair cut at the salon, I was drawn to the sign on the mirror explaining the process and the colors the water would turn after 30 minutes with your feet in it. I have heard about detoxification but this time, I just had to try it.
I went in a couple days later for my trial treatment. Total Image owner Kristen Redlinger put purified water in the tub along with some sea salt. She then added some hot water.
The array is placed into the water and emits currents which pull the toxins out of the body. According to AMD (A Major Difference), the maker of Ion Cleanse Detoxification, this is how it works:
The array goes into the water with the hands, feet, or other body parts, and the control unit delivers a small direct current into the array, which causes the metals within the array, in combination with the water and salt, to generate positively and negatively charged ions. These ions neutralize charged particles in the body. The neutralized particles are pulled out of the body through the skin via osmosis and diffusion. Osmosis and diffusion involve the movement of particles through a membrane, from a lower concentration to a higher concentration. In this case, the higher concentration is the ion field set up by the array in the water. (www.amajordifference.com)
As the toxins come out of your feet, the water turns a different color(s) and may have flecks. Here is generally what the colors indicate:
Yellow-green: Detoxifying from the kidney, bladder, urinary tract, female/prostate area
Orange: Detoxifying from joints
Brown: Detoxifying from liver, tobacco, cellular debris
Black: Detoxifying from liver
Dark green: Detoxifying from gallbladder
White foam: Lymphatic system
White cheese-like particles: Most likely yeast
Black flecks: Heavy metals
Red flecks: Blood clot material
Now the brochure does come out and say that water, metal, salt combined as well as other particles in the environment will cause the water color to change even if your feet are not in it.
So, when the water turned a little orange after my feet were in it for a few minutes, I wasn’t too alarmed. But then it turned a deeper red-orange and became rather thick. Wow, there really does seem to be a lot of toxins in my joints.
I’ve always had stiff joints. Even when I was young, slender and in shape, I had a difficult time walking after being stationary for a long time. When I get out of bed, I look (and feel) like am 90 years old sometimes.
I tend to attribute this to thyroid problems. I had my entire thyroid gland removed eight years ago and am on medication. When my levels are wacky, I can usually tell because my knees are extremely stiff. When my levels are stable, the stiff joints are much better, but not completely cured.
I haven’t yet had a follow-up detoxification session. I wonder how much more gunk remains in my joints and other parts of my body. Eewww.
