As we age, our body’s system experiences some form of damage from toxic material we absorb from the environment. Although initially non-lethal, this gradual poisoning of one’s physiology eventually becomes the source of chronic disease and fatal systemic failure.
Allergies, metabolic by-products, anxiety, emotional distress, genetic and metabolic disorders, excessive fat, sugar or protein in one’s diet, nutritional deficiencies, environmental poisons, heavy metals, infectious agents, smoking, lack of sleep and other noxious agents are all toxic components in everyone’s daily pattern of living that increase an individual’s susceptibility to a variety of maladies, including cancer, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes and stroke. These factors bring oxidative stress and depress the immune system.
Harmful manufactured substances that remain unrecognized by the body tend to linger in the cells of our body, lodged in organ tissues as noxious elements. These poisons tend to lie dormant while they accumulate and the human body has no real way to remove them on its own.
Detoxification, such as through an ion treatment, will rid the body of actual physical pollutants including toxic metals, harmful industrial chemicals, dead cellular materials and other bodily waste products.
The ion treatment generates alternating positive and negative ions that helps to eliminate the toxic overload in your body. These toxins are attracted out of the tissues through the feet and go into the water’s ionic components. The foot bath changes color as the body’s cells are flushed.
Detoxification usually takes about 20 to 30 minutes and multiple procedures over a period of weeks are recommended to completely flush your body’s cells. We are currently featuring a special on ion treatments: The first one is $20 or two for $40. These are normally $30 procedures.
