Ion Cleanse detoxification—getting the issues out of tissues
Townsend Letter for Doctors and Patients, June, 2004 by Morton Walker, Randall Walker
At the University Health Clinic in Seattle, Washington, Patrick Donovan, ND, tells of toxic components in daily living which increase an individual’s susceptibility to cancer, stroke, cardiovascular illness, diabetes, free radical activity, and many other degenerations. Numerous toxic factors include allergies, metabolic by-products, anxiety, emotional distress, dysfunctional relationships, genetic/metabolic disorders, over nutrition with excessive fat, sugar or protein, nutritional deficiencies, environmental poisons, heavy metals, infectious agents, smoking, poor hygiene, lack of sleep, functional/structural disabilities, and other noxious agents.
Such factors, Dr. Donovan advises, bring on oxidative stress and immune-system problems. They, in turn, reshape a person’s physiology toward disease-related processes, including: a breakdown or lapse in the functioning of routine self-repair for the protection of tissue integrity; depletion of the buffering reserves that ordinarily maintain the body’s acid/alkaline balance; alteration of normal biochemical processes; and metabolic changes leading to decreased production or utilization of high-energy compounds the body needs for optimal functioning.
Aging Results from the Accumulation of Toxins
Most health professionals who practice Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) affirm: Aging is a gradual accumulation of toxic chemicals and other substances in the body which cause genome destabilization and resultant catastrophic breakdown of tissue homeostasis. There is inevitability to this aging process. Even the most ardent adherents to a healthy lifestyle will experience some form of damage from toxic material that we absorb from the environment. Although the absorption of toxins is initially sub lethal, gradual poisoning of one’s physiology eventually becomes the source of chronic disease and fatal systemic failure. Such an insidious, inescapable process is the reason that detoxification is now accepted as a major component of anti-aging medicine.
Harmful manufactured substances that remain unrecognized by the cells tend to linger in the body. They become lodged in organ tissues as ever-present noxious elements. Most are industrial poisons which lie dormant while they accumulate, and the human body possesses no way to remove them on its own.
Detoxification includes ridding the body of actual physical pollutants such as toxic metals, harmful industrial chemicals, parasitic disease organisms, dead cellular material, and ordinary bodily waste products. Given the variety of harmful substances that accumulate in the body, knowledgeable holistic healers advocate a variety of methods to cleanse the patients’ insides. Numerous techniques for detoxification are necessary because some procedures manipulate the gross anatomy and some operate at a cellular level. While some detoxification procedures are more effective than others, each step in the process has its job to do.
Dr. Karen Kelley Uses the Ion Detox Detoxification Process
Interviewing with us from her Holistic Healing Arts Center in Foley, Alabama, the homeopath, psychotherapist, and nutritionist, Karen Kelley, DC, ND, discussed her primary patient detoxification technique.
“I use a basin containing sea salt dissolved in one cup of purified water which carries the gentle electrical charge from a multiple-metallic array set into the water. This array is plugged into a down-charging unit drawing electrical power from the wall. The patient feels no shock but rather has positive and negative ions created around his or her feet in the footbath,” Dr. Kelley explains. “Most patients test for a negative ion treatment; others need a positive ion treatment, and a few require a combination of both. During the beginning number of treatments, I use an array setting to generate for alternating positive and negative ions.
“Most of us are so loaded with toxins, detoxification using the Ion Detox actually makes energy for healing available. Toxic overload diminishes markedly for patients; the deleterious body ions are attracted out of the tissues through the feet and go into the water’s ionic components,” states Dr. Kelley. “The footbath water changes color which is a
manifestation of toxin removal from the body’s tissues. Reading the water’s color change is diagnostic of what is being released by the patient (see photographs 1-5 on facing page).
“For instance, when the footbath color turns bluish, one recognizes toxic dumping from the kidneys; a yellowish tinge means that the bladder is giving up its toxins; orange relates to joint toxins. Fibrotic tissue in arthritic joints is an attractant for environmental toxins–they are more vulnerable,” Dr. Kelley says. “Brown water indicates that a toxin dump from the liver has taken place. Candida albicans shows up as a cheese-like scum floating on the water’s surface. Often then a Herksheimer’s reaction occurs. Flecks of black in the water demonstrate that heavy metals are being released. Globlets of oil floating as a slick in the water means that fatty tumors such as lipomas are breaking up.
“The detoxification procedure with Ion Cleanse, usually takes 30 minutes for fourteen treatments administered every-other-day. Very sick patients are given up to 40 treatments, depending on how quickly symptoms subside. Pain goes away first. Once the footbath water stops changing color and stays clear, large amounts of toxin are no longer being dumped. More treatment is continued to give the array’s positive and negative ions combined with ions in the water a chance to heal existing pathology at a cellular level,” Dr. Kelley affirms. “Some color changes may come from the water source itself. Tap water derived from city pipes may have its own quantity of toxins. The extent of components in the water can be tested by running an array current through the water alone without one’s feet in it. What shows up as a color change is bound to be the water’s own baseline color. Other color changes and residual odors left in the water can then be judged as coming from the patients themselves.”
Assuring us that she can detoxify almost all aspects of a patient–even to emotional and mental dysfunctions arising out of stress–Dr. Karen Kelley refers to her Ion Cleansing therapy as “getting the issues out of tissues.” Dumping toxins gives the body an opportunity to heal those specific body parts from which the toxins are arising.
“In my clinic we have observed some really wonderful results. Pain disappears fast, even after just one visit. In addition to the footbath technique of detoxification, this Holistic Healing Arts Center utilizes many adjunctive therapies, and they include electroacupuncture according to Voll (EAV), psychospiritual counseling, color therapy, sound therapy, a particular laser therapy offered by the same distributor, A Major Difference (AMD), who furnishes me with the Ion Detox and much more,” says Dr. Kelley.
“However, of all my treatment procedures, most rewarding for me personally are results that I witness from use of the Ion Detox array immersed in a water bath for the feet.”
Cleansing Effects of Water
Being a powerful solvent, water is a cleansing agent for the body. Popular belief leads us to assume that we can drink enough water to harness its cleansing ability. The Institute of Medicine in Washington, DC, an independent group of experts that advises the federal government on health issues, reports that women should consume about 91 ounces (2.7 liters) of water a day. Men should drink about 125 ounces (3.7 liters) per day.
But there is a limit to how much water a person can safely and comfortably drink. Drinking too much water is dangerous and potentially fatal. Partly for this reason, Ion Detox Foot Spa is designed to bypass the digestive system entirely. Using the array, water is absorbed directly into the human tissues. After its microbiological activity, the absorbed water leaves the body without engaging the digestive tract. This entire beneficial process occurs without any effort or discomfort to the patient, and an ideal whole body detoxification takes place by means of applying the footbath.
What’s an ionic detox foot spa?
It is a self-contained high-tech machine water detoxification system that enables the body to heal itself. It is very user friendly and requires no special training to perform. It is a detox water foot bath which uses brass and stainless steel electrodes. It is used as a foot bath to cleanse, balance and enhance the bio-energy [the vital energy force present in the breath of bodily fluids]. This energy is the electro-magnetic force that is stored within the body and utilized by our cells. Chinese medicine refers to this energy as the “chi”. The complex energy fields permeate and realign the body’s energy field while improving
oxygen levels. While the foot bath is widely used to increase energy [both physical and mental energy], vitality, and stamina, at the same time, it purges [detoxifies] the body of toxins, chemicals, radiation, pollution, synthetics, and other foreign material trapped in the skin layers that have clogged up the body’s systems of elimination. Its internal cleansing includes parasite cleansing and liver detoxification, which results in less body fluid retention, reduced inflammation, improved memory, greater bladder control, a more balanced pH, a stronger immune system and significant pain relief, including headaches, gout and arthritis pain.
As believed in Reflexology, each foot is actually a channel, a conduit, through which your body attempts to cleanse itself of toxic wastes and heavy metals that are building up in many parts of your body. During the foot bath, you will actually see the cleansing process take place as the water interacts with a compound electric current and magnetic field structure. This body cleansing process results in the correct frequency required for cells to return to a healthy state, and to release waste that has been bonded to them over the years. This detoxification therapeutic procedure also enhances the effects of other therapies. These units are among the best detox products available.
What are the benefits?
In simple terms, improved micro-circulation means a healthier body. Through the use of the detox machine, you can rapidly assist in the detoxification and re-balancing of your body. It plays an important part in regulating both the supply of oxygen and nutrients to the tissues, as well as the proper excretion of waste products (toxins) out of the body. Anecdotal evidence and client testimonials report a calmer, clearer mind, better sleep patterns, improved skin condition, reduced pain and greatly increased energy levels as a result of a course of treatments.
How does it work?
Ionic Detox Foot spa treatments are an unusual therapy, based on the research of the medical scientist Dr Royal Rife and is a type of aqua detox. It aims to improve, among
other things, liver and kidney function through an electro-magnetic detoxification process carried out on the feet. The treatment is normally given by placing your feet in water in which an “array” will be activated. The feet have an enormous number of pores – in the order of 2000 in each foot – and thus offers a point of application. Which is both efficient and convenient.
As soon as the apparatus is switched on, gas bubbles form around the electrodes indicating that an electrolytic reaction is taking place. This will happen without any part of the body being in contact with the water: liberated gases will clearly be seen. The water in the foot bath becomes an extension of the water in the body, from which it is separated by nothing more substantial than a thin membrane – the skin.
Balancing the bodies Bio-Energy – the use of controlled, low frequency, direct electrical currents in the treatment of a variety of diseases and injuries are well established and widely understood.
Ion Foot Bath
Studies show elevated negative ion levels
Independent studies with Ion detox foot bath have been performed using the bio-waves software. These studies indicate that an overall balancing effect occurs along with a significant increase in the number of negative ions.
Ions are atoms or molecules that have lost or gained electrons. If the atoms or molecules lose electrons, they become positively charged ions. If they gain electrons, they become negatively charges ions. The proportion of hydrogen ions in a solution allows us to measure the PH (potential hydrogen) of the solution.
Water has an almost perfect balance of positive and the negative ions. The positively charged ions are hydrogen ions (H+) and negatively charged ions are hydroxide ions (OH-).
What this all means is that water is perhaps the greatest tool for healing on this planet.
Dr. Royal Rife believed that germs are responsible for creating disease in the body. He had frequencies present in several stages of development, (viral, bacterial, and fungal).
He believed that germs have their specific frequency and that their frequencies disrupt the cells natural oscillation. This puts the cells out of balance. He found that when he subjected the germs to the correct short-wave frequencies the germs disintegrated allowing the immune system to heal.

The pioneers in medicine and electricity
Gorge Lakhovsky (authored in 1939 “The Secret of Life”, cosmic rays and radiation of human beings), theorized that each human cell operates like a tiny battery and when fully charged that cell is able to experience “cell balance” and create a feeling of well being.
“I have reached the conclusive results with not only 2 meter wave lengths but longer and shorter. The main thing is to produce the greatest number of harmonics possible,” Lakhovsky said.
Dr. Albert Abrams, (authored “Human Energy”), theorized that a disease condition puts our radioactivity incompatible with the body. He believed you could alter the polarity of the affected cells and restore the electrical balance.
