Webster’s Collegiate dictionary defines it as such; (of, relating to, or having the properties of alkali esp: having a ph of more than 7.) PH stands for; potential of hydrogen. Fluids in your body that have a ph of 6.5 to 7 or 7.5 is considered neutral.
What is Acidosis?
Acidosis is defined by the Webster’s New World Dictionary as; (a condition in which the alkali reserves in the body is lower than normal.) Too much acid in the system creates abnormalities and dysfunction and is a breeding ground for unwanted intruders that cause cell degeneration.
According to Dr. Theodore Baroody, author of Alkalize or Die, says that ACIDOSIS is the basic foundation of all disease!
A body with a ph of 7.5, (75% alkaline and 25% acidic) is a healthy individual whose immune system can operate at its peak and will experience little health problems. It’s when the alkali reserves are mostly used up that we start to experience health problems. It can start out with simple manifestations such as acne, bloating, mild headaches all the way to major diseases such as liver or kidney disease, heart conditions and even cancer. The body’s condition depends on how long it has been acidic. (You can go to any drug store and buy nitrazine strips that tell you what PH level your body is at).
Diet is the main culprit along with environmental toxicity. In the name of greed and profit we have been systematically brainwashed into believing that when you are buying processed food loaded with chemicals, pesticides and modifies foods, that, what you are eating is safe for human consumption. Nothing could be further from the truth!
Before we started altering food, fruits and vegetables were consumed in their natural nutrient rich forms in earth’s mineral rich soil. Meat was consumed by animals that ate pesticide free grasses and leaves. We ate nutrient rich foods and breathed clean fresh air.
If you look at the average American today you’ll see an abundance of pasty, overweight or obese individuals that are sorely in need of an overhaul. Our toxic food sources, water and air are an unfortunate way of life. Our bodies may seem full after we eat but may be starving for actual nutrients we need for normal function let alone healing.
One solution to alkalize and rebalance your system is an ionic footbath system can be of benefit.
An ionic footbath has gained popularity over the last few years but in actuality Rife’s early research in the 1930s has brought us this workable technology.
How does the ionic footbath work?
A module is placed in a tub of clean water and a good grade sea salt. When the system is turned on you will immediately notice a bubbling action due to a controlled electrical current that courses through the water breaking it up. This breaking up of water molecules causes an electron to be displaced from its host which in turn makes it seek out another oxygen molecule. When it does, a negative ion is produced. Negative ions are a very powerful antioxidant and deliver more oxygen to the body. Negative ions alkalize and balance the body which is important for the body to begin healing itself. (Disease can only grab hold in an acidic environment.)
When you alkalize the body it can then begin the process of detoxifying the body through the liver, kidneys, skin etc. and rebuild healthy tissues.
Positive ions are a result of an atom or molecule that’s lost an electron. Free radicals are unpaired electrons and the result is degeneration. When you sit in front of a computer for any length of time you are bombarded with positive ions and that is why you can feel so fatigued and droopy or spaced out. Even living in a city you experience more positive ions. Have you noticed that when you drive out to the country or walk through a forest and breathe clean fresh air or smell that fresh rainfall, you feel better? That is because you are getting more negative ions.
A classic example of a place that is heavily bombarded with negative ions is Niagara Falls. People often go there and feel serene and wonderful. It’s not only because it is a beautiful location but the tremendous power of the water crashing to the bottom is constantly breaking up the molecules and the amount of negative ions are in such abundance that you feel wonderful just being there. An ionic footbath creates that same environment for you so that your body can begin to feel better and be more alert. A foot bath is not a medical device but rather a boost to speed along the recovery process.
What does discoloration of the water mean?
The color changes in the water will occur with or without feet due to the reactions taking place between the module, current and minerals. Their may be some detoxification taking place at the time of the session but color change of the water is not the product you are looking for, although it is very interesting. What is more important is the rebalancing of your system and how you feel after 1 or 2 or 10 or how ever many sessions you need to get the desired result.
Rejuvenate and rebalance and alkalize your system and feel better. You don’t have to be the effect of your environment anymore. A combination of an ionic foot bath, change in diet and moderate exercise can have a dramatic effect on your health.
