Overview - Toxins in the Body
Think of everything our bodies consume and not just by what we eat. Sure some of us enjoy seafood, which contains high levels of mercury that in large amounts are toxic to our bodies. Additionally, most foods contain preservatives, which have its benefits but do not provide nutrients for the human body. Other ways that our bodies absorb elements from our surrounding environment that we generally don’t take into consideration are through all of our other sensory organs. We absorb through our skin chlorine from swimming or even parabens from our regularly used lotions. Also through our skin as well as our vision, we take in electromagnetic radiation, invisible waves transmitted from electrical devices. By way of smell and our respiratory system we inhale pollutions and other airborne chemicals.
Pertaining to this brief overview, it’s important to understand other facts such as the human body is sometimes unable to fully process an abundant intake of chemicals. A perfect example of this is chemotherapy. This chemical may kill cancer cells but it also kills healthy cells, drastically weakening the immune system. The same thing, in smaller doses, happens to our bodies daily – they are overloaded faster than they can naturally eliminate toxins. Exposure to environmental elements is inevitable. However, MY Therapies has a wonderful solution to assist in detoxification.
What is the Ionic Detox?
Also called a footbath, the ionic detox uses water in combination with a module that releases negative ions into the water. The negative ions are absorbed into the feet, through the skin, creating an energy exchange. Cells within oxygenate, allowing impurities to release and exit the skin.
The danger of the combination between electricity and water is a frequent inquiry. The fact that we are able to put our feet in a tub of water with an electrical current and not be shocked is seemingly complex. However, understanding that the module providing the electrical current is producing a DC [direct current/negative ions], which does not allow the effects of a shock - making this a safe, non-invasive therapy.
This detoxification system was designed to provide results for the body similar to the effects of the earth's natural hot springs.
The benefits of this therapy are many. Here are a few:
