Why IonCleanse?

The Ion Cleanse Footbath purifies the body through the electrolysis of the water.  Relax with your feet in water for about 30 minutes.  Healthy individuals can expect to feel lighter and experience a greater sense of well being from each IonCleanse® session. 

Today we are exposed to the greatest toxic load in the history of our planet and ongoing periodic detoxification is essential to maintain health and avoid disease. The IonCleanse, in combination with a healthy, low-stress lifestyle, provides a thorough and efficient way to maintain high energy levels and long term wellness.

The IonCleanse by AMD is a safe, noninvasive way to cleanse and purify the body. For the past 15 years, the IonCleanse by AMD has been the leader in ionic footbath detoxification.

Along with the IonCleanse® Premier® foot detoxification machine, the IonCleanse® detox foot bath is the ONLY unit of its type to receive true FCC & CE safety approvals, making them the safest detox baths available on the market. Anyone can say anything on the internet. A computer-generated certificate is not enough to ensure the machine you are researching is safe. 

Due to the success of the IonCleanse by AMD, many competing companies have tried to imitate the IonCleanse system without success. There have been many claims made by other companies, but without supporting documentation, they are just that, unfounded claims. 

Today we are exposed to the greatest toxic load in the history of our planet and ongoing periodic detoxification is essential to maintain health and avoid disease. The IonCleanse, in combination with a healthy, low-stress lifestyle, provides a thorough and efficient way to maintain high energy levels and long term wellness.


We believe the IonCleanse detoxifies the body more effectively and faster than any herbal or fasting protocols, with little or no stress to the patient. Used properly, the IonCleanse provides a comfortable and relaxing way to rid the body of toxins without precipitating healing crises.

What to Expect

Healthy individuals can expect to feel lighter and experience a greater sense of well being from each IonCleanse session. 


Many colors and objects appear in the water during IonCleanse sessions. There is a reaction between the toxins and particles in the water, the salt added to the water, the metals in the array, and the acidity or alkalinity of the person being bathed. All of these combine to produce color, whether or not feet are in the water. The basic color produced by these reactions varies from one geographic area to another.


It is important to understand that the water will change color even if the unit is operating without feet in the water. The basic color change is a result of the reaction between all of the variables in the water and the array, as discussed above. This color change will vary in accordance with the toxic and chemical components of the water and air given a particular geographical area. 


The toxins in our bodies will look the same as the toxins predominant in a specific area; however, there will be more toxic particles in the water with feet in it. You will also find that water-based toxins will not stick to the side of the bucket and array, whereas substances pulled from the body will form a sticky ring that must be removed with a detergent. 


However, through many tests, we have found that the residue in the bucket is easily rinsed off if the unit operates without feet in the bucket. In addition, the residue produced while a person's feet are bathed has been found to stick to the bucket and cling to the array. The bucket will then require some type of scouring powder or soap in order to be thoroughly cleaned. 


We have also found that a person's detoxification session will override the geographical toxicity of the water. Based on EAV (Electro Acupuncture by Voll) testing, the following table shows what we believe the colors in the water to represent:

How the IonCleanse Works

An ion is a charged atom that has gained or lost an electron which creates a magnetic field capable of attaching to and neutralizing oppositely charged particles. These neutralized particles are extracted from the body through the process called osmosis. Osmosis is a scientific term that is used to describe the movement of particles through a membrane from an area of lower concentration to an area of higher concentration. In this case, the higher concentration refers to the ion field that is set up by placing the array into the water while running the unit.


The array is placed into the water alongside the hands, feet, or body while the power supply delivers a low level direct current to the array. This causes the metals within the array in combination with water and salt to generate positively and negatively charged ions by separating oxygen and hydrogen in the water. 


The practitioner determines the polarity setting through the use of litmus paper (pH strips) or muscle testing. We speculate that ions generated by the IonCleanse travel through the body attaching themselves to a multitude of toxic substances, thereby neutralizing their positive or negative charge. It may be possible to reduce pain and other symptoms caused by a lifetime of toxic buildup in the body (assuming the symptoms are caused by toxic buildup). The long-term effectiveness of the IonCleanse detoxification process depends on other life-enhancing changes a person is willing to make.


The Meaning of Positive and Negative

For the purpose of IonCleanse discussions, positive and negative relate to electrical rather than chemical phenomena. 


When the IonCleanse is set to positive, the current is directed to the positive pole, which results in the production of more negative ions in the water. Therefore, a positive polarity generates a negative ion flow which, we believe, raises blood pH from acidic toward alkaline.

When the IonCleanse is set to negative, the current is directed to the negative pole, which results in the production of more positive ions in the water. Therefore, negative polarity generates a positive ion flow which, we believe, lowers blood pH from alkaline toward acidic.


Approximately 95% of people in this culture experience a state of acidity; that is, their bodies contain an excess of hydrogen ions, and their blood pH is lower than 7.45. These people will greatly benefit from exposure to high concentrations of negatively charged ions. However, it has been determined through saliva, urine and blood pH testing as well as muscle testing, that most people prefer a mixture of positive and negative ions in each IonCleanse session.



Anyone who falls into one or more of the categories listed below should not use the IonCleanse system:

  • A person that has a pacemaker or any other battery operated or electrical implant.

  • Any person who is on heartbeat regulating medication

  • Any person who has had an organ transplant

  • Any person who is taking a medication, the absence of which would mentally or physically incapacitate them, e.g., psychotic episodes, seizures, etc.

  • A pregnant and lactating woman because of the  pull of toxins out of tissues and fat. These toxins could impair fetal development and will be passed through the milk that is fed to a newborn infant. 

  • Note: Pregnant and lactating women have used the IonCleanse without harm; however, we do not provide this services to these women our of abundance of caution  


In addition, the following recommendations should be strongly considered:

  • Many medications require that a blood level be maintained in order to be effective, such as blood pressure medication. You may be able to schedule an IonCleanse session just before the administering of medication so that proper blood levels are maintained. You must check with your practitioner or doctor before use.

  • Anyone with low blood sugar must have eaten before an IonCleanse session. The IonCleanse tends to lower blood sugar in diabetics and may do so with those who are hypoglycemic.  

  • As a general rule, you can use the IonCleanse with on dialysis, while taking insulin, or experiencing congestive heart failure. Gentle detoxification will help the body eliminate toxins which the kidney and heart cannot eliminate on their own, but will not interfere with medications or deplete insulin levels.  You must check with your practitioner or doctor before use. 

  • Some with metal implants, have found  the exposure to an electromagnetic field to be too uncomfortable. Stop immediately if discomfort is experienced.  

IonCleanse Foothbath Cellular Detox 

Far Infrared Full Body Therapy


Far infrared radiation (FIR) can penetrate under the skin, muscle and bone. This effect creates heat moxibustion, which improves blood circulation, cell metabolization and cell activation.

With regular use, this low EMF, amethyst infused, tourmaline layer with medical-medical grade interior and exterior wrap provides many benefits including:

  • Burn up to 600 calories per hour

  • Better sleep

  • Reduced inflammation

  • Detoxification

  • Less anxiety

  • Improved collagen production for a healthy glow

  • Less muscle soreness and joint pain

  • Improved blood circulation


Infrared heat warms up the body, and heating the body can destroy viruses and bacteria. Some say that heat can even destroy tumors.

Infrared blankets facilitate detoxification primarily through sweating.

Sweating helps the body get rid of:

  • Heavy metals, like cadmium, lead, mercury, aluminum and uranium

  • Toxic chemicals

  • Radiation

  • Other toxins

Infrared heat is especially efficient at removing toxins. One study found that with traditional saunas, 95-97% of the sweat is comprised of water. With an infrared sauna, 80-85% of the sweat is water, and the remaining 15-20% consists of: heavy metals, cholesterol, fat-soluble toxins, sulfuric acid, uric acid, ammonia and sodium. 

Saunas help stimulate your cells to release toxins, which can then be eliminated by the liver.  That is what we call a ‘good sweat’.   It is the ideal percentage range your detoxification process.  It will help you get that healthy glow with consistent use.

Fat Burning and Cellulite Reduction

FIR can also help the body decompose fat cells and even reduce the appearance of cellulite. Cellulite is comprised of fat, water and wastes which are trapped under the skin. Profuse sweating, like what’s induced by FIR, can eliminate the wastes and fat in these pockets of skin.

Just one 30-minute session with an infrared blanket can burn 500 calories. The heat generated by the sauna increases your core temperature in a way that’s similar to a workout.

Clearer, Healthier Skin

If you’re dealing with body acne or other skin issues, an infrared sauna blanket may be able to help. The detoxification action of the sauna helps clear the skin of blemishes and impurities. At the same time, it promotes skin cell regeneration and healing to give you a youthful glow.

You won’t be able to use the blanket on your face, but the rest of your body will have a detoxifying glow.

Increased Circulation

One of the major benefits of FIR is that it helps improve blood circulation. Better circulation means that more oxygen and nutrients can travel to your vital organs and skin.

A simple sauna session can help oxygenate tissues. This also helps with healing and removing impurities from the skin.

Reduce Pain & Inflammation

Living with chronic pain can be debilitating, but an infrared sauna can help. The heat-generating property of an infrared sauna blanket will help ease aches and pains.

Whether you’re dealing with back issues, arthritis or just sore muscles from an intense workout, the soothing heat and relaxing effect of the sauna will help bring you the relief you crave.

Some studies have also shown that infrared saunas can be beneficial for chronic health conditions, such as high blood pressure. More studies are needed to confirm the results, but it’s a promising therapy that has virtually no adverse side effects.
