What is an Ionic Foot Bath?

Ionic footbaths are a popular tool for detoxing the body. The media has been quick to label them pseudoscience based on some poorly done research. Properly done research has shown that ionic footbaths do increase detoxification of heavy metals. There is still some uncertainty as to the mechanism of action, but the anecdotal evidence of the effectiveness of ionic footbaths is overwhelming.

A direct current goes through one end of an electronic array, through the water (which has salt added for conductivity), and back through the other end of the array. Depending on if the machine is set to positive or negative, the current will break water into positively charged hydrogen ions (H+) and oxygen gas (O2), or negatively charged hydroxyl ions (OH-) and hydrogen gas (H2). You can usually see or smell the O2 or H2 gas near the array. The main theory of how ionic footbaths work is that the ions in the water pull out oppositely charged toxins through the pores in the feet and into the tub of water.
