Toxins and heavy metals enter your body every day through food in the form of additives, preservatives and pesticides, as well as from water and air. These toxins are just that, TOXIC to your system. Toxins stick to the cells and make it impossible for vital nutrients and oxygen to get inside and waste products to exit. This poses a serious problem because your body cannot easily break down and get rid of the toxins and metals, therefore we accumulate toxins faster than they can be eliminated. This accumulation over time impairs the proper functioning of your body, creates illness and disease and delays the healing process.
How Do You Know if You’re Toxic?
Accumulated toxins create: chronic pain, headaches, stomach problems, allergies, arthritis, chronic fatigue, hormone imbalances, inflammation, mood disturbances, more stress, decreased immunity and even cancer.
Ways to Detox
Several detoxification formulas exist on the market today and can be found at any major health food store. These formulas are a safe and effective way to “clean house”. Specific herbs are used in combination, which flush out toxins circulating in the blood stream, embedded in soft tissue and clogging organs, so that healing and wellness can flourish. It is a good idea to use one of these products each season of the year.
A note of caution: Flushing toxins out of your body this way can cause a “healing crisis” to occur if your body is overly toxic. Although the herbs support the organs of detoxification, an extra load is placed on these organs using this detoxification method. Symptoms of a “healing crisis” can include headaches, fatigue, fever and flu symptoms, insomnia, joint pain and skin irritation that can last several days. This is not harmful, only uncomfortable.
Everything in the physical universe has an electromagnetic charge and attraction. Different toxins and metals accumulate in various areas and organs of the body according to their magnetic attraction.
Ionic hydrotherapy is a sophisticated system of detoxification which we use in our clinic following each treatment. Your feet are placed in a tub of water which acts as a conductor, and a special device called an array is placed between your feet. The array produces positive and negatively charged ions which flow through your body and act like a magnet in attracting toxins and heavy metals out of the tissues. The toxins enter your blood stream and as they circulate through your body, they are attracted to the charges of the array and exit your body through the pores in your feet via osmosis. (See pictures below)
The process of ionic hydrotherapy is a safe and effective means of detoxification which bypasses your body’s natural detoxification systems, reducing the burden on these organs and significantly reducing the possibility of a “healing crisis”.
