Colors and Objects in the Water

An ionic footbath also known as ionic cleansing is a detox footbath. It removes toxins through the soles of your feet. You start with a clean bowl of water and electrodes that deliver a low-level electric current during the treatment. You place your feet in the bath for 45-60 minutes long. As the ions start to detox, the color of the water will change based off of what you are detoxing out.

The ionic process gives the hydrogen in the water a positive charge; the positive charge attracts the negatively charged toxins in your body. The ions in the foot bath water hold a charge that bind any heavy metals or toxins in your body, which causes them to pull out through your feet into the water. Think of how a magnet works, it’s the same way pulling the toxins out making it a footbath detox.

Many colors and objects appear in the water during Ionic footbath sessions. There is a reaction between the toxins and particles in the water, the salt added to the water, the metals in the array, and the acidity or alkalinity of the person being bathed. All of these combine to produce color, whether or not feet are in the water. The basic color produced by these reactions varies from one geographic area to another.

It is important to understand that the water will change color even if the unit is operating without feet in the water. The basic color change is a result of the reaction between all of the variables in the water and the array, as discussed above. This color change will vary in accordance with the toxic and chemical components of the water and air given a particular geographical area.

The toxins in our bodies will look the same as the toxins predominant in a specific area; however, there will be more toxic particles in the water with feet in it. You will also find that water-based toxins will not stick to the side of the bucket and array, whereas substances pulled from the body will form a sticky ring that must be removed with a detergent.

However, through many tests, we have found that the residue in the bucket is easily rinsed off if the unit operates without feet in the bucket. In addition, the residue produced while a person’s feet are bathed has been found to stick to the bucket and cling to the array. The bucket will then require some type of scouring powder or soap in order to be thoroughly cleaned.

We have also found that a person’s detoxification session will override the geographical toxicity of the water. Based on EAV (Electro Acupuncture by Voll) testing, the following table shows what we believe the colors in the water to represent:

Color or ParticleMaterial or Area of the Body
Yellow-greenDetoxifying from the kidney, bladder, urinary tract, female/prostate area
OrangeDetoxifying from joints
BrownDetoxifying from liver, tobacco, cellular debris
BlackDetoxifying from liver
Dark greenDetoxifying from gallbladder
White foamLymphatic system
White cheese-like particlesMost likely yeast
Black flecksHeavy metals
Red flecksBlood clot material

We have also seen parasites, pinworms, and smelly purple mucous from a person on dairy allergy medication. We have experienced various rancid odors which, if you have more than one unit operating in your office, will require an ionizer to neutralize.

Regional Toxicity

Water, metal and salt will combine to produce a light water color change, as well as objects in the water even without feet being submerged. The IonCleanse neutralizes toxins in the water the same way it neutralizes toxins in the body. The predominant color of the de-ionized water is determined by the chemicals used by local water authorities in combination with the pollutants common to that area.

In Denver, Colorado, the predominant water color is orange; in Phoenix, Arizona it is orange-brown; in parts of Texas it is brown; it is yellow-green in Boise, Idaho.

Chinese acupuncturists understand the concept of regional toxicity as it relates to the ailments that predominate in a given area. Some areas of the country have higher joint complaints, while others report a higher frequency of kidney-bladder problems. Could it be that the toxins peculiar to an area gravitate toward a specific part of the body causing it to break down?

As a general rule, regional toxins contribute 20-40% of the residues found in the water after a footbath.
