I've done a series of... I think it was 10? Whatever it is they recommend you do. Once a week.
Soooooooo much stuff came out. It was different every time and I always brought someone different with me (as the woman had two who was offering the sessions) and they were always impressed as well.
I plan on going for more sessions this summer.
I did a series of them. I felt FABULOUS after them. I combined them with a series of colonics the second time. I felt really clean after the second series.
You will be amazed at what you see!

I have been offering these as part of my massage/bodywork/detox practice for two years. Always with great results for people. I'm lucky to have attracted a practice of folks who are really into health and detox, so offering my raw info is such a nice segue for me.
Good luck with your ions! As the saying goes - negative ions for a positive attitude!:)

Oh Cool Rawvive...
Tells us more. LOL. Like do specific colors mean anything? Any tips of the trade to get a more beneficial session? Im sure the place Im going will fill me in, But it's always good to know from a pro.

Well, the first thing to understand is that there is not "giant chunks" of anything coming out of your feet, as people often misinterpret. The color that the water turns is a chemical interaction between: the ion machine, your feet, any products on your feet, your internal pH, and the water. If you ran the machine in water, with no feet in it, there would still be a color change, because of all of the things that exist in tap water. If you soaked your feet in plain water with no machine, your feet would still excrete organic material.
During a session, color changes in the water are representative of the interaction of the above mentioned, and can generally indicate which system is actually being affected -- you may have a session in which different colors layer onto each other, so the person offering the footbath best be paying attention and not just chatting away.:) Here are some general guidelines:
White pieces indicates candida
White foam or film indicates lymphatic cleansing
Brown to black indicates liver
Orange indicates joints
Green indicates gall bladder
Yellow indicates kidney-urinary system
Red allegedly indicates blood clot issues, but I have never seen that in anyone
Sessions can vary in color from session to session, or remain relatively similar throughout all sessions.
Make sure the person offering the footbath is obsessive about sanitary issues! All footbaths should have a disposable liner or at least a plastic garbage bag covering the footbath.
I did hear one story from a woman who had a bad reaction and her foot turned white almost immediately. This was not anyone I saw, but someone called me and asked for advice, and all I could figure is that the bleach solution used to clean the array unit that goes in the water was not properly rinsed off before starting the footbath and the woman had a reaction.
Sometimes you will feel a tingly sensation - totally normal. Sometimes you will feel very tired afterwards, other times like you have a great energy buzz. Never had a client with a bad reaction. Definitely extra water, as in any detox process.
I use warm water and do the session for 30 minutes. I can do longer, but find the water gets too cold. I've heard people only use cold water and I think that sounds unpleasant, so I use warm water instead.
I've had huge success personally, too, with chronic injuries and acute colds, which is why I offer it to people wanting to supplement their detoxing.
I first did these footbaths from a woman who insisted on using the 30 minutes to hard sell me on her multi-level marketing line of products, which I didn't want, so I just got my own unit and offer sessions that do not pressure clients into additional purchases. Units are from $200-$2000, replacement parts (the part that goes in the water) is about $10-$15 per array, and can be used for 30-50 sessions. eBay has all this.
Hope that helps! Happy detoxing!!!:D

Hey, I just listened to your podcast last night with the guy from the 30 day documentary. Wow, so incredible. I can't wait to see the movie. :D
Davylp25 - I did the colonic first. It was recommended because I was often lightheaded after the colonic. I would sit in a comfy chair, sip Essiac tea and detox in an ionic foot bath. Ahhh...!
