Many Americans are looking for ways to be proactive about their health – from eating healthier to getting regular exercise. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, not to mention the money we save by staying out of the doctor’s office.

Alternative therapies have gained in popularity as people are becoming increasingly skeptical of the standard response of the medical industry. According the AMA over 100,000 people die in hospitals every year due to side effects of regularly prescribed medications.

One very interesting form of alternative therapy is ion detoxification. With the increase in toxins in our environment and in the foods we eat, our bodies are being overloaded with toxins that damage our health. The Columbia University School of Public Health estimates that 95% of cancers are caused by diet and environmental toxicity. Other studies have found a direct link between Parkinson’s disease and environment toxins. Heavy metals and chemical toxins weaken the immune system and cause increased vulnerability to virus, bacterial fungal and parasitic infections. The human body has its own automatic toxin control system. However the volume of toxins we take in over time can overwhelm this system. Over time toxins accumulate in the body and can weaken or even shut down our immune system. This leaves the body vulnerable to all kinds of disease and illness.

Ion detoxification helps the body to remove these toxins freeing your body’s immune system to fight disease and illness. Ion detoxification works by using an ion detox foot bath and warm water. A person immerses their feet in a foot bath of warm water while the ion generator produces millions of positive and negative ions. These ions flow through the body and attach to oppositely charged toxins, also known as free radicals, and are then drawn out of the body through the sweat glands on the bottom of the feet through the process of osmosis.

Removing unwanted toxins helps protect the immune system from toxic overload allowing it to protect against illness. Everyday your immune system defends your body from pollutants and foreign toxins. Only your immune system can repair, heal and cure illness and disease. Because the ion detoxification treatment process is simple, relaxing, non-invasive and drug free many individuals are adding it to a healthier lifestyle.
