While attending Natural Products Expo East 2019 I tried an ionic detox foot bath. My friend in Baltimore has one and after she mentioned her experience I decided to give it a try. The results were interesting and worth sharing. There are many similar products out there so be sure to do your research and invest the time to determine if it is worth investing in. Expo East is a great place to network with health practitioners and find great ideas and natural products to assist in your health journey. Our three days at Expo East 2019 offered a wealth of education and information and trying the ionic detox foot bath was a nice bonus.

Expo East 2019 Bonus

After a long day of walking at Expo East she suggested I give the ionic detox foot bath a try. The Natural Products Expo East 2019 was held in the Baltimore Convention center and involved three long days of standing and walking so it seemed like a great idea to try a new product and allow my body to detox and feet to relax. There was not enough time to see all the exhibits and I did not see any ionic detox foot baths so this seemed like a nice bonus.

When you hear about a product that can help improve your long-term health it is easy to say yes to a test drive. So at night, she set up her Ionic Detox Foot Bath made by Healcity. The process involved plugging in and setting up the control panel with a wrist band, far infrared waistband unit and submerged ion array in a foot bath of water. Once I was connected and seated with my feet in the foot tub she added salt to the warm water, Then she turned the device on for 45 minutes. At first, there did not appear to be any noticeable effect other than a slight bubbling and hum from the array device in the water. However, within ten minutes I noticed the far-infrared waist belt felt warm and the water started to turn a slight yellowish-brown. By the end of the session, the water had turned a dark brown with a slight oil slick on the surface of the water. 

It was quite surprised to see the water turn such a dark brown considering I consider myself quite healthy. We did the process for three nights and each time the results were similar. After using this ionic foot bath my conclusion is that eating healthy, exercising and using many healthy protocols on a regular basis does not seem to be enough. Therefore I recommend readers consider either finding a health practitioner that offers this detox service or buy one to use. Doing an ionic detox foot bath several times a month seems like a great idea to help remove toxins. Even if you do not use an ionic detox foot bath device you can get benefits from simply soaking your feet in warm Epsom salt water with lavender essential oil.


Ionization works is a water molecule because it is composed of two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom. When a water molecule splits it forms a hydrogen atom and an OH molecule which takes on a negative charge. According to the ionic device information, it is important for people to have  80% negative electrons and 20% positive electrons to enjoy optimal health. Because of high stress and poor diet people tend to accumulate excessive quantities of waste products in their organs and tissues. An ionic detox foot bath helps the body release these toxins through the feet as a result of the ion array reaction with your feet in the saltwater.

It is up to each of us to make informed decisions and read the description and reviews before we use a product. It pays to be vigilant when it comes to safety and track record. Over ten years ago I tried an ionic foot detox device at a small health expo and after two minutes took my feet out of the water because the electric current was so strong it gave me a headache. As a result, I have been skeptical and not tried once since then. The goal of this post is to educate and inform readers that an ionic detox foot bath may be a healthy protocol or not.
