Isn't introducing salt into the body bad for you?


Eating too much salt is linked to high blood pressure, which can increase the risk of heart attacks and strokes. However, with salt therapy, the salt enters your respiratory system, not your stomach, heart, and kidneys. In addition, the concentration of salt is .5-10 mg/m3(milligrams per cubic meter). To put that into perspective, the daily recommended salt intake for the average adult is 6g (grams). Therefore, the amount of salt entering your respiratory system is extremely low. Even if you eat that amount instead of breathing it, the amount of salt is insignificant. Salt entering the lungs kills bacteria, reduces inflammation, and loosens mucus.




Are there side effects?


Rarely. If you have a lot of mucous, it is not uncommon to experience increased coughing after a treatment. This is the body’s way of responding to the salt treatment by draining the accumulated mucus.




Is salt therapy safe for children?


Absolutely! Salt therapy is a completely drug-free treatment for children and adults. Children as young as 3 months have benefitted greatly and respond quickly and effectively to Halotherapy.

Along with healing benefits for chronic skin conditions; such as, eczema, psoriasis, acne, etc. It is a modern-day therapeutic method based on the principle of the natural salt mine micro-climate (Speleotherapy), where frequent exposure to the salt produced healing results for miners and others experiencing respiratory illnesses. As you relax in a comfortable, climate-controlled room surrounded by mineral salt, salt micro-particles are emitted into the room and passively enter your lungs to initiate the healing process.




How does salt therapy work?


A patented machine called a halogenerator produces dry saline aerosol by mechanically crushing rock salt grains to the size of 1 to 5 micrometers. The generator is installed on the outside wall of the salt rooms. The dry salt aerosol is blown into the rooms via a small opening in the wall. In addition to a halogenerator, the walls of salt therapy rooms are covered with mineral salt. The salt-filled room provides a negative ion environment (like the seashore), which contributes to wellbeing and promotes stress reduction in addition to helping your particular condition. These small particles of salt are negatively ionized and bear very high kinetic energy. This way they can travel into the deepest and smallest parts of the lungs. Negative ionization of salt aerosol increases the efficiency of healing. Inhaling the micro-salt particles assists you in expelling mucous and helps open constricted airways. It also boosts the immune system.

Do you feel off?


Trust what your body is telling you. A lot of our clients feel like they have tried absolutely everything to feel better. Oftentimes, detoxification is the missing piece to the health and wellness puzzle. Here’s why you should give the IonCleanse by AMD detox foot bath a try.




Why is it important to Detoxify?


The Human body has a unique capability to heal itself. When functioning properly, it can kill invading viruses and bacteria, destroy cancer cells and prevent virtually all diseases. The problem faced today is more and more people are suffering from a wide range of illnesses. Today's modern society has created what many health care practitioners refer to as an epidemic. We have created what we now call environmental illness. Environmental illness is perpetuated by current western medicine attempting to treat the symptom and not the underlying cause. Natural health care practitioners and physicians, who specialize in integrative medicine, recognize the need for detoxification. Although the human body was designed to handle a relatively large amount of toxins, our modern environment is contaminated to the point that most people need assistance to regain and maintain optimum health. This is where the ION Foot Detox comes in. The role of the Ionic Foot Detox is a beneficial alternative therapy for helping the body to reduce unwanted toxins on its own; it is only an aid in the healing process carried out by your immune system. According to the theory of Nutritional Immunology, only your immune system can heal your body and cure you of your illness and disease. So, therapeutic detoxification is a valuable way of assisting the body to detoxify and cleanse its organs and tissues on its own. This detoxification and cleansing process carried out by your own body, miraculously aids in the healing process carried out by our immune system.




What is a detox foot bath session like?


During a session, the client sits in a comfortable chair. Most individuals find the experience VERY relaxing. The session takes about 30–40 minutes.




How does an ionic detox foot bath work?


Electrical current passes through a set of plates in a module that is immersed in the water inside the foot bathtub. The foot bath water contains special sea salt, so it has the mineral concentration of water from the ocean. While the client's feet are in the water, positive and negative ions are emitted by the foot bath system. This re-energizes the body and the red blood cells. It eliminates toxins that are stored in fat, kidneys, liver, bowels, and skin. The foot bath also triggers the body's lymphatic system, which helps with continuing detoxification for up to 24 to 48 hours after a session.




How many ION Foot Detox Sessions will I need?


It is suggested that you begin with a total of 10 sessions over a 2 – 4-week period to maximize detoxification. After these initial sessions, you can switch to a monthly maintenance program.




How quickly can I expect results from my condition?


This will depend on your personal condition, lifestyle, and your willingness to take responsibility for your health. The frequency of the ION Foot Detox sessions also plays a role in how quickly results are achieved.




What to expect after an Ionic Foot Detox Bath detoxification session...


Most clients experience a general sense of wellness following each session, which might include the following:

  • Increased Energy
  • Enhanced Sense of Calmness
  • Clearer Thought Process
