Hi, this is Dr. Minkoff, LifeWorks Wellness
Center. You may have been prescribed, what
we call, Ionic Foot Baths.
Now, what’s a foot bath?
Well, it’s a little tub of water, you put
your feet in it. There is a device inside
that tub which puts a very low level electrical
current in to the water. And that electrical
current puts ions or energy into your body.
And when you put the positive energy into
your body, chemicals and toxins and other
things which are positively charged, you know
they’re free radicals, they start to exit
the body. Cause, the body wants an equal balance
of plus and minus. So, if you put in extra
pluses, you can force the excess pluses, like
mercury, arsenic, cadmium, and drugs and other
stuff out. And so, these things come out through
And so, you put your foot in the foot bath
for about half an hour. We do it usually two
times a week.
What you will see is that the water turns
brown, and it gets bubbly, and ugly and it
looks horrible. Some of this is the toxins
that are leaving. Some of it is just the reaction
of the electrodes in the water.
This treatment was originally designed for
people who had had chemotherapy, that had
toxic reactions from the chemotherapy. They
had chemo brain, or they had heart problems
or other things. And it was an attempt to
try to get the chemotherapy that had been
left in their body after the treatment to
get it out.
So I usually advise this for people who have
had chemotherapy and had reactions, or who
have a high level of toxicity in their body
with heavy metals or chemicals or pesticides.
And it helps their body to get the stuff out
faster than it would if we didn’t use it.
It’s very simple. Actually, feels good.
Some people will get a bit of a detox reaction
the first three or four treatments. Some people
actually feel quite energized by it.
So, it’s very safe. It’s very good. There’s
tons of research on this and it’s kind of
fun to get a foot soak a couple of times a week.
Ok. So, hope this helps.
