The Footbath Detoxification System 

The Sarasota Center for Acupuncture and Nutrition is now offering a Professional Footbath Detoxification System. This cutting-edge technology assists in maintaining the detoxification of your body. The world we live in makes us all susceptible to ingesting toxins, which can cause us physical problems.

Why Do We Become Toxic?

More than half a million different chemicals are used to make, lubricate, clean, coat, wrap, and finish the products we use every day. While our bodies have complex systems that remove toxins, namely the lymphatic, skin, liver, and kidneys, they are no match for this onslaught.

Heavy metals, minerals, pesticides, synthetic chemicals, and hormones, even human and animal wastes, are in the water we drink, the foods we eat, the clothes we wear, the houses we live in, the air we breathe, and the cosmetics we use.

Cosmetics currently fly below the radar when it comes to identifying toxins. TEA (triethanolamine), DEA (diethanolamine), and MEA (monoethanolamine) are commonly used in cosmetics in the United States. Their use is restricted in Europe, as they are known carcinogens. Almost 50% of cosmetics containing ethoxylated surfactants were found to contain dioxane, a carcinogen. Most shampoos contain sodium or ammonium lauryl sulfate. These substances caused eye damage and central nervous system depression to animals that were exposed to it.

The skin is the largest organ in our body and, because it’s permeable, it easily absorbs toxins. The scalp is especially permeable to toxins. Relate that to the numbers of toxic chemicals put in your hair to color, shampoo, condition, and treat it.

The Sarasota Center for Acupuncture and Nutrition offers several ways to determine the level of your toxicity. These include:

  • Laboratory blood analysis
  • Saliva testing 
  • Hair analysis

How Does the Footbath Detox Work?

Our feet contain 2,000 eccrine sweat glands and more than 7,200 nerve endings. Plus, the arteries and veins crisscross in our feet. For all these reasons, the feet are a natural pathway for eliminating toxins. The Footbath Detox System uses warm water that serves to open the eccrine sweat glands in the feet. This, combined with the ionization of the water and the water’s microcurrent, gives toxins an easy exit route from their storage places in the body.

Patients have noted an increase in metabolism and a corresponding increase in the removal of toxins by the normal, natural process of elimination. Improved ability to breathe deeply, cellulite reduction, and greater energy levels are some of the natural side effects of having a detoxified body. 

How Often Do You Need to Do It? 

I recommend once per week for eight weeks and then a maintenance session at one month’s time, followed by another session a month later. You should detoxify twice per year both with a foot bath session series and a homeopathic systemic detoxification.
