Ionic Foot Bath: Research

Total Body Detoxification is a process using the Aqua Detox Class IIa Medical Equipment to allow the cells all over your body to release their toxins.  The toxins then collect at your feet.  Could this really be so?  The research proves it!

Ionic Foot Bath Research

Aqua Detox International worked with Doctor Sanjay Chaudhuri who has conducted a pilot research study into the Aqua Detox machine. The research involved 6 people (2 of which were placebo) undergoing a series of tests before and after using the Aqua Detox machine.

The excerpt below has been taken from the Aqua Detox International Website which was taken from the article printed in CAM magazine in September 2005 and was reproduced on Aqua Detox International's website with the permission of Dr Sanjay Chaudhuri and CAM magazine.

The purpose of the pilot study was to:

1. Ascertain whether the Aqua Detox has a scientifically measurable and reproducible effect

2. Answer the following questions.

  • What does the foot spa do?
  • How does it work?
  • What proof is there?

3. To learn lessons in order to create a fuller trial - e.g to create a dummy machine set-up that would reliably test a control group with the purpose of measuring and correcting for placebo effects.

The charge created by an Aqua Detox medical array is minimal (– 1.7 – 2.1A) less than a fairy light. Therefore the scientific equipment we chose to utilize in our pilot study needed to be sensitive enough to measure the subtle physiological changes which occur immediately after an Aqua Detox.

Research Methodology

6 test subjects aged between 18 and 70, consisting of 4 females and 2 males, undertook the following measurements before and after the 30 min Aqua Detox session:

1. Heart Rate Variability using the Health Express algorithm adaptability scale

2. Arterial Stiffness Indicator using Cardiotrack proven in clinical trials at a leading London hospital.

               


3. Blood Pressure and Pulse using an electronic meter which averaged 3 readings

4. Meridian stress testing using the Avatar electro-dermal screening device employing the Energetix CMD 48 point probe protocol

5. Live Blood Microscopy phase contrast visual qualitative assessment using the Detox Doctor visual medicine protocol.

   
 

A pH and redox meter were used to ascertain changes in the Aqua Detox treatment water and asked our test subjects to describe how they felt during and after the treatment.

The 3 control subjects were told they were to have an Aqua Detox treatment. The foot bath was prepared with Saline to increase conductivity to 2.1 Amps and the array was surreptitiously disconnected from the power unit for the same duration as the test subjects. No comments were made during the subsequent testing phase. The purpose of the control group was to assess the reproducibility and validity of our test protocol, particularly the electro-dermal testing.

In order to standardize the study, we limited participants’ water intake to just 1 glass during the Aqua Detox treatment and ensured that no food, tea or coffee was consumed 2 hours before testing.



Detailed toxicity study results:

In a 2003-2004 study, BP-3 was detected in 96.8% of the 2,517 urine samples collected from Americans 6 years of age and older.

The capability of-3 (BP-3) to absorb and dissipate ultraviolet (UV) radiation facilitates its use as a sunscreen agent. BP-3 has other uses in many consumer products (e.g., as fragrance and flavor enhancer, photo initiator, UV curing agent, polymerization inhibitor). 

According to the August, 2008 Chemwatch Bulletin Board, BP-3 exposure has not been linked to adverse health effects in humans.  However, results of animal studies by the National Toxicology Program have shown effects in liver, kidney, and reproductive organs, and studies by other groups have shown endocrine-disrupting effects. 

-3 (BP-3) has estrogen-like effects, causing concern among breast cancer survivors whose cancers were fed by estrogen. 

Not long ago scientists thought that the placenta shielded cord blood — and the developing baby — from most chemicals and pollutants in the environment. But now we know that at this critical time when organs, vessels, membranes and systems are knit together from single cells to finished form in a span of weeks, the umbilical cord carries not only the building blocks of life, but also a steady stream of industrial chemicals, pollutants and pesticides that cross the placenta as readily as residues from cigarettes and alcohol. This is the human "body burden" — the pollution in people that permeates everyone in the world, including babies in the womb. In a study spearheaded by the Environmental Working Group (EWG) in collaboration with Commonwealth, researchers at two major laboratories found an average of 200 industrial chemicals and pollutants in umbilical cord blood from 10 babies born in August and September of 2004 in U.S. hospitals. Tests revealed a total of 287 chemicals in the group. The umbilical cord blood of these 10 children, collected by Red Cross after the cord was cut, harbored pesticides, consumer product ingredients, and wastes from burning coal, gasoline, and garbage.


In a study in 2003, WWF-UK tested the blood of 155 volunteers from around the UK for the presence and levels of a range of 78 hazardous man-made chemicals, including pesticides (OCPs), polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and brominated flame-retardants (BFRs). The study revealed the startling extent of chemical contamination in the bodies of people from across the UK: every person in the survey was contaminated by chemicals from each of the chemical groups tested.

A 2004 WWF-UK survey, “Contamination: The next Generation”, attempted to find answers to questions such as:

  • How do different generations compare in their chemical burdens and their contamination profiles?
  • How contaminated are children?

This survey took blood from three generations of seven families from around the UK and analyzed these samples for 104 different man-made chemicals. The results were shocking: All three generations, including the children, were contaminated by a cocktail of hazardous man-made chemicals, many of which are used in everyday products around the home and many of which were banned before the children were even born. The results revealed that every child, including those as young as nine years old, was contaminated by the same range of hazardous chemicals: organochlorine pesticides, PCBs, brominated flame-retardants, phthalates and perfluorinated (“nonstick”) chemicals. Five chemicals found in each parent and grandparent were also found in every child (a banned flame retardant, 3 PCBs and a breakdown product of the banned pesticide DDT).

Even more alarming was that some children were more contaminated with certain chemicals than their parents or grandparents generations.





What does the research indicate?

Notice that every single person in every study was contaminated.

Your body was NEVER designed to process these chemicals and heavy metals.

Your liver and kidneys cannot easily or rapidly break them down. And when your body is unable to breakdown and eliminate these toxins, it stores them away in your fat and/or liver and/or joints.

So, if you're tired all the time, this could be the reason why...
 
If you suffer from joint pain and inflammation, this could be the reason why...
 
And if you're plagued by `senior moments' and brain fog, this could be the reason why...
