Ionic Foot Bath: Benefits and Effect On Your Overall Well-Being
We live in a toxic world. According to estimates by EWG, the average adult has over 700 toxins in their body, while newborns are exposed to nearly 300 toxins even before they’re born.
There are defined pathways in the body to convert harmful toxins into less harmful chemical compounds, so it’s easier to eliminate them through stool, sweat, or urine. Organs such as the lymphatic system, kidneys, liver, lungs, large intestine, and sweat glands work efficiently as a system to detoxify the body from environmental contaminants such as yeast, mold, fungus, preservatives, pesticides, and heavy metals.
However, when the body is burdened with excessive toxins, the sluggish natural detox process can cause the toxins to remain active in our systems for longer. Waste buildup within our body can disrupt our metabolism, triggering chronic diseases and causing overall health to decline as a result.
Supportive detoxification modalities such as lymphatic drainage massage, colon hydrotherapy, and ionic foot bath can help the body remove excess toxins while enhancing the body’s natural ability to detoxify itself.
With people all over the globe touting the benefits of ionic foot baths, qualified health specialists at Inside Out Restorative Spain CA share some insights into how the regular use of this miraculous treatment helps improve overall well-being.
Benefits of Ionic Foot Baths
#1- Immune System Boost
Foot detoxes help remove heavy metals, toxins, and other impurities through your feet, strengthening the immune system. A Center for Research Strategies study showed a 47% decrease in aluminum levels and a 35% reduction in arsenic levels in patients who took regular ionic foot baths.
Other benefits, such as lowered cholesterol and blood sugar levels and alkalization, were also recorded on top of strengthened immunity. A stronger immune system better absorbs healthy nutrients and makes it less likely for you to get sick frequently. You’ll be able to fight off various illnesses more quickly.
#2- Reduced Swelling
Ionic foot baths help to disinfect and cleanse feet while also stimulating blood circulation, leading to reduced swelling and relief of minor pains and aches. Increased blood circulation supports the entire body’s functions, improving health and wellness and preventing many health concerns made worse by poor blood circulation. More nutrients and oxygen reaching all cells and organs also help to minimize future concerns and swelling.
#3- Stress Relief and Elevated Mood
Loosened muscles and nerves, as well as the elimination of harmful toxins, can make your body feel good. Besides helping you relax and unwind, ionic foot baths help you sleep better and reduce stress levels.
When your feet look fabulous, you’ll automatically feel confident and comforted. Ions entering our body further produce biochemical reactions that alleviate stress and depression symptoms, elevate our mood, increase concentration and alertness, increase energy, destroy harmful microorganisms, and bring our bodies to an optimal homeostasis state.
