Detox Foot Bath Questions and Answers
Why Detoxify the Body?
Regardless of where we live, our environment is more polluted than at any time in history and this trend is not changing. The air we inhale, the water we drink, the food we eat, plus all things we touch or use contain residue from petrochemicals, pesticides, herbicides, toxins, heavy metals and other chemicals. The accumulation of these toxins in our body contributes to our overall decline in health and quality of life.
It is only logical that an ongoing detoxification program may reduce the incidence of chronic degenerative disease and improve our overall quality of life.
What is Detoxification?
The exposure to toxic chemicals and heavy metals is the source of toxicity in the body. After years of exposure and ingestion of these substances, the body becomes less efficient in eliminating these toxins and they are stored in the liver, body fat, or other parts of the body. The result is symptomatic of illness, chronic conditions, and sometimes death.
The effective use of detoxification techniques can make the difference between an effective healing program and endless frustration resulting in failure. The Lectro Chi Premier Energy Foot Spa is an invaluable tool to any individual seeking a successful detoxification; however, it must be understood that any detoxification will only be successful with a well-planned and executed protocol.
For individuals seeking a successful detoxification program or body cleanse it is recommended to make gradual and positive lifestyle changes for a couple of months prior to detoxification. These include and are not limited to the following:
Run a maximum of 1 Lectro Chi foot bath every 2-3 days. Consume healthier foods. Get regular Exercise. Refrain from toxic substances such as tobacco, fatty foods ect… Nurture yourself spiritually and emotionally.
By making the simple changes listed above any detoxification program will easily integrate into your lifestyle. The rewards of successful detoxification can include increased health and longevity, a sense of well-being that resonates throughout your whole body.
Can I use the Lectro Chi Premier Energy foot spa while taking prescription medication?
Yes… As long as you and your health professional are comfortable with the system.
No… If you are on life-sustaining drugs. However, after you have completed the drug regimen and you have obtained permission from your health professional, use of the system may aid in your recovery.
Can I place my hands in the Lectro Chi Premier Energy foot spa?Yes! The system is designed to be used with either the hands or feet
Why does the water change colors?
The water color change is attributed to the water becoming excited when it is ionized by the water module and its reaction with the minerals in the water and toxins that are released by the body. The color is dependent upon water quality and mineral content, plus your general health condition.
While the color change and material floating in the water are important to help determine what areas are being detoxed, the success of the session is better determined by the color change in the urine and the overall positive change in the symptomatic problems of the treated individual.
During a Lectro Chi Premier Energy Foot Spa session the treatment water may go through multiple physical changes. Below is a simple water color chart corresponding with the material or body part that may be detoxifying. Note that certain minerals in the water may also result in different coloration.
The chart below gives an example of what many experts believe the colors are attributed to.
Water is defined as a clear, colorless, odorless, and tasteless liquid essential for most plant and animal life. This is a very generic definition for a substance that is vital to all living organisms – a scientific fact that we were all taught in elementary school. However, water in its natural form should be considered “alive”.
The water we reference as “alive” is not the water that has its own ecosystem. We are not referring to an ecosystem of algae, frogs, fish, and insects. We are referring to unpolluted water that is loaded with minerals and bio-electricity. The closest “alive” water source on our planet would be unpolluted mountain streams. Ionization is occurring in these mineral charged streams. If you were to immerse your body in one of these streams your body would recharge from the streams bio-electricity (chi).
Water is one of the most vital substances required by our body. In all reality, it is the carrier of our life-force. If a body is lacking water, it enters a state of dehydration. If water is the carrier of life and our body is in a state of dehydration – how can our body be recharged with the energy it requires? Without water that is “alive” our body will not operate efficiently and at its maximum potential.
When operating the Lectro Chi Premier Energy Foot Spa it is imperative that we DO NOT use distilled water or water treated by reverse osmosis. These treated waters have had the life-force removed. In essence these treated waters are lifeless.
During a Lectro Chi Premier Energy Foot Spa session the color changes in the water can be dramatic or minimal. Color change is not the most important factor when judging the success of a session. The water does not always change color during a session and is not always an indicator of energy being produced.
It should be understood that water color will generally change if your feet are soaking in the bucket or not. Color change can be related to the reaction of the water module’s surgical steel with the type of water (city, well, mineral, etc) used and/or the state of the individual’s health. When the water becomes excited it ejects tiny particles which become visually observable in the water. This will tend to change the water color.
Why do I feel energized or fatigued after a session?People often feel either energized or fatigued after a session. Most detoxification is the result of positive ions being released in the body. When the body tissues begin to release toxins, the body will feel fatigue as it becomes overloaded in the attempt to void these toxins from the body. The energized feeling is due to the body receiving more negative ions that energize the body.
Does the Lectro Chi Premier Energy foot spa remove only harmful metals from the body?
No… The process will remove both harmful and good minerals from the body. The technology does not discriminate against which minerals are being removed. During a session your body may release toxic minerals such as cadmium, lead, copper, arsenic, and mercury. However, your body may also release beneficial minerals such as calcium, magnesium, potassium, boron, etc.
This is why it is imperative that you replace the beneficial minerals. We recommended a good multi Vitamin with minerals.
I recently had rotator cuff surgery. I continued to experience pain in my shoulder after the surgery. After several Lectro Chi sessions the pain was gone.
Why would this happen?It could be several reasons. One explanation is toxins tend to collect in damaged tissue and organs. These toxins may have been contributing to the pain, and prolonging the healing process in your shoulder. By detoxing the shoulder tissue, the healing process may have been aided.
What is Chi?
Chinese (Mandarin) qì, air, spirit, energy of life.
Taoism and other Chinese philosophies define “chi” as “The vital life force inherent in all things. The unimpeded circulation of “chi” and a balance of its negative and positive forms in the body are held to be essential to good health in traditional Chinese medicine.”
Many shroud “chi” in mysticism and metaphysical phenomena. Through the advent of special effects and the popularity of martial arts movies, some are led to believe that those who have obtained “chi” can levitate over roofs, ward off the onslaught of hundreds of arrows with a single sword, and heal the sick by clapping their hands together and applying acupressure.
If your definition of “chi” is based on martial art movies then you have happened upon our site erroneously.
We refer to “chi” as the energy (bio-electricity) or life force in your body. Bio-electricity (“chi”) should not be confused with the electricity used to power our homes and businesses. Bio-electricity is found in all living things in the form of positive and negative ions.
An ion is an atom or subatomic particle that normally is electrically neutral and achieves its status as an ion by loss (or addition) of an electron. A positive ion lacks energy and a negative ion is high energy.
Most don’t have a scientific background in the properties of ions so it is important to understand that “chi” is the measure of life force in your body. Healthy individuals have a balance of electrically neutral, negative, and positive ions. Unhealthy individuals tend to be out-of-balance bio-electrically .
Both healthy and unhealthy individuals must understand that optimum health is dependent upon healthy emotions, physical exercise, good nutrition, and a strong spiritual faith. We firmly believe that all true healing comes from God and He continues to miraculously heal the sick and suffering today. If you have learned only one thing about “chi” it should be that it is not metaphysical or mystical, but that it is the bio-electrical charge of your body.
What is heavy metal poisoning?
Heavy metal poisoning is the underlying cause for many symptomatic illnesses and diseases. There are many individual metals causing varying degrees of illness based on acute and chronic exposures. Symptoms of heavy metal toxicity include pain in muscles and joints, chronic fatigue, headaches, vision problems, mental confusion, short-term memory loss, gastrointestinal upsets, food allergies, and multiple other symptoms.
The fact is that all heavy metals are toxic and our bodies require special transport and handling mechanisms to keep them from harming us. The Lectro Chi Premier Energy Foot Spa is an excellent tool to help facilitate heavy metal detoxification. The effectiveness of the Lectro Chi Premier Energy Foot Spa depends on but is not limited to the factors below:
- Organ or body part that needs detoxed
- Current health and physical condition
- Spiritual strength
- Emotional state
- Hydration & Diet
- Supplementation, Prescription Pharmaceuticals
If you are concerned about heavy metal poisoning, please seek a professional who is trained in heavy metal detoxification. Many diseases and conditions share common symptoms. If you are new to heavy metal detoxification and you attempt self-diagnoses, the chances are high that you will misdiagnose yourself for the wrong illness. Specific symptoms can be shared by many complex diseases.
