Is Disease Caused by Toxins?
We live in a society fraught with pollutants and toxins — natural and synthetic. They exist in our air, water,
food, clothing and the environments in which we live, work, play and sleep. Cigarettes, alcohol, and
caffeine are also major sources of toxins. As a by-product of busy lifestyles and the increasing pollution in
the environment, our bodies are encountering and storing unwanted toxins on a daily basis. Tissue acid
wastes, chemicals, and heavy metal residues now build up in our body faster than ever before, resulting
in a greater incidence of allergies, and mental and physical incapacitation. Pimples, rashes, dark circles
under the eyes, swollen joints, yellow, green and blotched complexions often indicate a build-up of tissue
acid wastes inside the body. Our bodies are depleted of crucial life-giving elements, leaving us to feel
drained of energy or unable to heal naturally from illness, injury or medical procedures.

With the increase in the number of chemicals introduced in the last fifty years, there has been a dramatic
increase in incidences of auto-immune disease, allergies and common infections. There is no coincidence
in this increase. There are tens of thousands of chemicals in use today and more than a forth of these
are known to be toxic; moreover, nothing is known about their interactive effects. (Tests on body fat
shows residue of hundreds of chemicals.) Metals, such as mercury, cadmium, an antimony are
everywhere and impossible to avoid. Lead, for example, can block red blood cell formation. Chemicals  
act as toxins that can block receptor sites on cells; cause changes in calcium homeostasis; selectively kill
cells; and alter expression of gene products. Metals and chemical toxins weaken the immune system and
cause increased vulnerability to viral, bacterial, fungal, and parasitic infections. In an attempt to detoxify
these substances, our bowels, kidneys, liver, and immune system are being overloaded. Our eliminative
channels have become blocked or dysfunctional because in conjunction with the synthetic chemical toxins
in our environment, the western diet is so acid-forming and de-vitalized of necessary nutrients.
To relieve the strain on our detoxifying organs, particularly the kidneys, liver, intestines, and immune
system, it is more important than ever to maintain a detoxification regimen. The IonicSpa   is designed to
relieve these strains and detoxify the body through the skin, the largest organ in the human body.
Several IonicSpa treatments, along with dietary modification and detoxification have been shown to
substantially reduce and even eliminate the conditions discussed above.

Water is a critical resource. It covers two-thirds of the Earth’s surface and 80 percent of the human body
is comprised of water. It’s in the fluids we drink, the air we breathe, the foods we consume, and it is the
medium by which we detoxify ourselves. Aside from being the wellspring and sustainer of all life, it is also
a living thing. When monitored under ionization, a glass of water can be found to produce an electrical
charge of up to five volts. Additionally, if the water is healthy, the voltage reading will fluctuate and
change over time. This bio-electrical energy is notably absent when water is distilled or run through a
reverse-osmosis process.  Since ancient times people have bathed in natural springs and reported
experiencing healing benefit for many ailments. Resorts and health spas around the world maintain their
popularity because bathing in springs — hot, cold or mineral — has undisputed therapeutic effects,
including: improved circulation, increased relaxation and, as a result, relief from symptomatic or chronic
pain. The Ionic Spa ionizes water to detoxify the body and recreate the therapeutic experience found
naturally in the world’s most reputed spas.
An ion is a charged atom or molecule that has gained or lost an electron, thus creating an electro-
magnetic field capable of neutralizing oppositely-charged particles such as toxins in the body. The ions
produced by the Ionic Spa create a gentle vibration that aids the release of unwanted toxin particles
through the pores on the sole of the foot. There are over 2,000 pores on each foot! Ion producing
technology has been around for several decades, but the secret to its successful use in body
detoxification is the production of positive and negative ions in the same treatment. The control head of
the Ionic Spa unit delivers an electrical current through the ionizer array that is placed into the water
alongside the feet. The low-level direct current to the array causes the metals within the array in
combination with water and salt to generate positively and negatively charged ions by separating the
oxygen and hydrogen components of water. The Ionic Spa detoxification/cleanse system allows the
negative ions to attract and attach themselves to toxic substances in the body with the opposite charge.
Since most toxins in our body are positive in charge, (i.e. heavy metals ions), they will be conveniently
neutralized and drawn out by the negative ions produced by the Ionic Spa. Toxin particles are pulled
through the skin and out of the body via osmosis and neutralized because they are attracted by the
highly-concentrated ion field in the Ionic Spa water. When the Ionic Spa is set, the negative ions being
produced in the water raises the user’s pH to a more alkaline state. This is significant because the vast
majority of people in the United States live in an acid state… their bodies contain an excess of hydrogen
ions and their pH is lower than 7.45. Such people benefit greatly from exposure to high concentrations of
negative charged ions, bringing their bodies back into a more balanced acid-alkaline state. This is very
significant, because when your body is alkaline, the cells causing many diseases, such as cancer cannot

The ultimate benefit and very purpose of Ionic Spa is to release the incredible power of our immune

Every day our immune system defends us from pollution and foreign invaders, including our own cells
when they mutate into cancer causing cells. Did you know that only your immune system can repair, heal,
and cure you of illness and disease? Look in any medical textbook or ask any doctor and they will tell you
that any illness that goes away as a result of a prescribed course of treatment or procedures is also
destined to return when the treatment does not include paying attention to the important role of the
immune system.  If a patient is not taught to acknowledge the importance of changing their lifestyle to
better support their immune system, as part of their long term recovery plan, the old disease or some new
one is almost always certain to re-manifest.

After each Ionic Spa Detoxification/Cleanse session, it is common to feel an immediate relief from disease
and illness symptoms. Even though you may feel this relief, it should be noted that Ionic Spa treatments
do not heal or cure diseases and conditions directly.  The role of the Ionic Spa Detoxification/Cleanse
system should be viewed as that of a relaxing alternative therapy for reducing unwanted toxins from the
body; 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 your illness and
disease.  So Ionic Spa Detoxification and Cleanse technology is only a valuable way of assisting the body
to detoxify its organs and tissues. This detoxification and cleansing process miraculously aids in the
healing process carried out by our immune system.

The theory of Nutritional Immunology gets a lot of credibility from the simple fact that every natural
method for regaining health will consistently includes some sort of special routine or nutritional diet for
cleansing, nourishing, and balancing the immune system and it's supporting organs of detoxification. The
theory of Nutritional Immunology states that for the immune system to function at optimum levels, it must
be given special nutrition, and that we must modify our lifestyle in a way that is known to support the
immune system's function.  For example, we must strive to reduce our exposure to environmental toxins.
This is done by mainly consuming pesticide-free organically grown wholesome plant food without toxins in
the form of chemicals and preservatives (not an easy task!).  We must also learn to reduce and manage
our stress levels; as well as make sure we are getting proper sleep and rest.

We must recognize and take into account that all the organs of our body are not separate, but
interrelated and connected; and so before the optimum function of the immune system can be restored,
each organ of the body associated with supporting the immune system must be restored to health also.
These supporting organs; the liver, kidneys, lungs, intestines, and skin, for example, aid the immune
system by either processing and removing toxic waste; acting as a barrier to protect the body; or simply
ensuring the absorption of necessary nutrients from foods we eat.  In conclusion, when the immune
system is unhealthy, it is either because the organs that support the immune system are sick (due to
toxicity), or because the  immune system and its supporting organs are malnourished as a result of years
of not getting the vital nutrients required for its function!

By now we hope you have noticed the recurring theme:  when any system in the body is sick, it is usually
because of toxin build-up in the tissues or organs. One way toxin build-up can happen so acutely;
because we are suddenly bombarded by so many toxins that our detoxification system is unable to
remove them fast enough without extra help from us (i.e. by changing our lifestyle and engaging in
detoxification treatment to support the immune systems).  Shockingly, toxic build-up is usually chronic
(gradual); that's right... the number one reason for toxin build-up in our bodies is because we not helping
the immune system do it's job for years. Since the number one factor for immune system health is
nutrition, it is due to years of malnutrition. However, malnutrition here doesn't mean we are not eating
enough food in quantity; it simply means that for years, we were not providing our body with all the right
types of food nutrition, in the proper form the immune system and it's supporting organs need on a daily
basis. This last point illustrates how important it is to provide our immune system and it’s supporting
organs with all the vital nutrition they need on a daily basis.
Let's get back to importance of supporting our immune system. When we are healthy, we must support
our immune system so that it can continue to keep us healthy as a preventative measure.  And since only
the immune system can heal, when we are sick, we must support our immune system so that it can heal
us. It all sounds so simple, but it becomes quite complicated if the immune system itself is unhealthy. An
unhealthy immune system cannot properly perform its defending and healing function. When the immune
system is unhealthy, it gets rather complicated because it is, unfortunately, not an easy task to bring the
immune system back to health. As we have already established, the problem lies in the fact that all the
systems of the body are interconnected; in order to restore the immune system function, we must also
restore the function of all its supporting organs.  This is a rather slow process. Isn't it scary, that this is the
situation inside the body of a sick individual fighting a serious illness or disease?  It is ironic that so many
people don't even realize how serious the situation is when it is a weak immune system that is trying to
nurse them back to health. A very sick individual's immune system is already under so much stress that at
any time their health could take a turn for the worst if they don't quickly find ways to support their immune

One way to indirectly support our immune system's health and function is to simply detoxify all the other
organs in the body, especially the organs that are most related to supporting the immune function (i.e.
circulatory system, kidney, liver, intestines, colon, etc.).  By simply helping to detoxify these supporting
organs, we are not only lessening the strain on the organs and immune system, but we are also
dramatically increasing the immune system's function. This is because of the fact that when these
supporting organs become somewhat less toxic, they will thus be better able to carry out their supporting
role of the immune system more efficiently.  As these supporting organs of the immune system become
more nourished and detoxified, the faster and better they are able to carry out their task; thus the faster
and better the immune system can carry out its healing and defending task!

How to help and support the immune system:
We have already established that the immune system is overworked and stressed, and that this is
because we are malnourished and absorbing too many toxins. Therefore the simplest way to help our
immune system is to cut down on the amount of toxins we are consuming and/or are exposed to on a daily
basis. People who are sick need to be especially diligent about this. The next way to support our immune
system is through proper nutrition; we need to learn which foods will support our immune function and it’s
supporting detoxing organs.  The very sick need to understand these points because it may mean life or
Though nutrition is the number one factor, there are other ways of supporting the immune system, some
are obvious and some not so obvious; for example, reducing one's stress level, getting regular exercise,
sleep, and rest. Now let us take a look at the role of IonicSpa in supporting the immune system.

An Ionic Spa is an external method that helps to detoxify every organ, tissue, and cell in our body directly
and indirectly by re-energizing the natural waste elimination and detoxification function of the immune
system and it's supporting organs.

How and why Ionic Spas helps:
To understand the importance of Ionic Spas, let us keep in mind that most illnesses and disease happen
because of toxin accumulation and build-up in our organs and tissues. Accumulation happens as a result
of the immune system and its supporting organs being backed up, (unable to remove toxins fast enough
from the body compared to the rate of intake).  Furthermore, the immune system and its supporting
organs become backed up as a result of either of an acute over-exposure to toxins or because of a
chronic (gradual) toxin build-up due to years of being malnourished (not getting all the vital nutrients
necessary for proper function). This is why all natural and herbal health protocols are promoting that we
eat foods that the immune system needs on a daily basis. Furthermore, all natural health protocols, state
that we should reduce our intake and exposure to (more) toxins. Finally, reducing the amount of toxins
already in our body by using either external or internal detoxification agents is the ultimate and most
significant part of most Detoxification/Cleanse protocols for restoring health.  In conclusion, the goal of
most healing and health recovery program is Detoxification and Cleansing (and to continually remove
toxins faster from the body faster than the rate of intake). This is the only way our immune system and the
supporting organs can keep up in this toxic world. Ionic Spa is an example of an external Detoxification
and Cleanse method.

When we are following a Detoxification/Cleanse program or treatment, the mechanisms by which our body
heals can be viewed as a positive feed back loop involving the immune system and its supporting organs.
This mechanism is as follows: as more toxins get removed from the poisoned organ and tissues (by the
Detoxification/Cleanse method), these organs are better able to support the immune system; thus the
immune system is able to repair its supporting organs faster and faster.  As the supporting organs are
repaired faster and faster, they will be able to support the immune system better and better until it is
finally working at the optimum level. Now functioning properly, the immune system can now keep up in its
vital task of defending, repairing, and healing our body and mind (assuming we continue to give it proper

Sadly, today, even after our body has healed itself from a battle with an illness, the war is not over.  We
are living in a toxic world and eating foods that are so toxic and stripped of vital nutrients not only
because of high speed processing techniques that uses high temperatures and chemical additives, but
also because of the mass growing and harvesting techniques used in modern farming and agriculture.
These techniques all focus on quantity and profit rather than on quality, therefore, we have no choice but
to continue to help our body detoxify.  We must continue to monitor what we eat in order to reduce our
intake of toxins while also insuring that we are getting the essential nutrients necessary for cleansing,
nourishing and balancing our immune system and body.

Ionic Spa is an external method that helps to detoxify every organ, tissue, and cell in our body. Ionic Spa
helps the immune system and it’s supporting organs by dramatically reducing the detoxification and
cleansing workload that they would have to otherwise carry out on their own.  This gives the immune
system more time and resources for tissue repair, and fighting diseases.  As each type of tissue or organ
is detoxed within our body, we are going to notice a significant change in the way we feel. This feeling,
called the healing reaction (or cleansing effect), is often a positive feeling with Ionic Spa use.  However
the feeling can also be a temporary uncomfortable feeling until our body has adapted to having so much
less toxins. Imagine that, our tissues and organs are so comfortable living in a highly toxic environment
that we actually have to get used to having fewer toxins in our body!

While it is amazing that Ionic Spa is often able to provide immediate relief for sufferers of so many chronic
symptoms, there is a far greater benefit from IonicSpa’s use. This benefit is of course the tremendous
positive effect it has on the immune system, the only body system that can heal, repair, and cure.
New scientific research suggests that all types of illnesses and diseases, such as cancer, heart disease,
arthritis, etc., can be prevented through proper nourishment and care of the immune system, and that a
person’s overall health and wellness can be vastly improved!  Ionic Spa treatments is care for the immune
system; it is a revolutionary way to re-balance, re-energize and detoxify the body; which promotes further
healing by the immune system.

The Ionic Spa treatment re-stabilizes the cells of the body so that normal physiological functions run at
optimal levels, particularly the uptake of necessary nutrients and the elimination of unwanted waste
products. These benefits dramatically help to restore the immune system to normal functioning, not only,
by reducing the stress on it, but also by helping the body to better absorb the necessary nutrients we
need to eat in order to restore its functions!

toxicity, hypoglycemia, low energy levels, pain, reversal in the aging process,
soreness, stiffness, swollen joints & tissue, tension, and weight management without
The Ionic Spa unit detoxifies the whole body with little or no stress to the patient. Under
the effect of small electric voltage and current, the array of the Ionic Spa separates
positive and negative ions, which flows within the water. The negative ions will attract
and attach themselves to oppositely charged toxins and tissue acid wastes, and then
draw them out of our bodies through our foot skin. Tests have shown that heavy metal
toxins, such as cadmium, cobalt, lead, tin and vanadium toxins can be significantly
drawn out of the body through the foot pores during the detoxification.  This is the same
principal as electrolysis in high school chemistry, which attracts metals to the negative
