In today's world it is estimated that over 95% of people in our modern society experience a chemical imbalance within their bodies which causes an excess of hydrogen ions, and their blood pH is lower than optimal (7.45 pH). These people will greatly benefit from exposure to high concentrations of negatively charged ions.
The way ionization works is a water molecule is composed of two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom. When the molecule loses a hydrogen atom, the remaining OH molecule takes on a negative charge. As you walk along the beach your body absorbs millions of these negatively charged ions, which alkalize the blood and tissue. Because of poor diet and high stress, we tend to accumulate and store excessive quantities of waste products, such as diacetic, lactic, pyruvic, uric, carbonic, acetic, butyric, and hepatic acids.

The Result of 30 Minutes of Detox
Healthy individuals can expect to feel lighter and experience a greater sense of well being from each Ionic Cleanse session. It is recommended to do a series of 10-14 sessions to get the best results. Just read what patients and doctors have had to say...
"My once swollen ankles are now normal size after six treatments. They tend to retain fluid when I am under stress, but one or two treatments brings them back to normal size." -- Ellen Zimmer, Spring Valley, WI
"The liver spots that used to be all over the back of my hands and arms are almost completely gone." -- Louise Webb, Durango, CO
"My 85 year old mother could not work in the garden because of severe pain and stiffness. She can now work a few hours every day and fights me for the Ionic Cleanse." -- Gordon Pierce, Littleton, CO
Why Detoxify the Body?
We are living in the most polluted environment in the earth's known history. We are continually inhaling and assimilating residues from petrochemicals, plastics and pesticides that occupy cell receptor sites and block hormone utilization. Consider the following statistics:
1,600% increase in birth defects since 1980
250% increase in breast cancer since 1980
59% decrease in male sperm count since 1940
500% increase in cancer mortality since 1900
400% increase in heart disease since 1900
All of the above statistics are directly related to the increased exposure to petrochemicals, toxins, heavy metals and other chemicals in the environment. While no process or modality can guarantee the prevention of these conditions, it is logical to assume that an ongoing detoxification program - the act of minimizing toxic accumulations in the body - will reduce the incidence of chronic degenerative disease and improve overall quality of life.
Virtually all alternative healing approaches make liberal use of detoxification protocols. Detoxifying the body has been a familiar modality to all ancient healing traditions, including Ayurvedic, Chinese and Native American, for thousands of years.
In a recent article entitled The Pollution Within (National Geographic October 2006 pgs 117-143) David Ewing Duncan explores the toxic load our bodies are exposed to just living on this planet.
