Ion

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the advantages of 3 different body density settings? TOP

A: The IB Platinum Edition is the first and only device to have three different settings for different body sizes. This is critical for maximum benefit, as smaller people respond better to lower ion flow and larger people require additional ion flow to achieve the same stimulus of the nervous system. (Arndt Schultz Law)

The 3-body density settings based on body weight are:
1. Low = 100 pounds or below and children under 10 years of age.
2. Med = Between 100 and 200 pounds.
3. High = 200 pounds and above.

 

What is the significance of water discoloration in an ION Bath session? TOP

A. Some people claim that what you see in the water are toxins being drawn right out of your body, but most of what you see happening with the water is related directly to the water being used. The water discoloration is the result of the ionization of the metals of the array, salts, and minerals in the water and the body's reactive process combined. It is not true that the difference in the color of the water is due to certain organs not being balanced.

While the color changes in the water can be dramatic, it is not the most important factor and one must be careful about making any judgments based only on the water color. The change in color of the water it is not always an indicator of whether energy is being produced. The best indicator that may be found in the water after a treatment would be an oily substance located on the container at water level. It generally contains materials released from the outer layers of the skin. Another indicator after a session can be found in the color change in the urine of the individual. Body function is increased which results in the darker coloring of the urine. A darker coloring of urine can also be seen after eating because the body is processing waste materials, similarly, after a session, even though no food has been consumed, the extra energy seems to activate waste product or toxin removal and is evident by its presence in the urine.

 

Why does the color of the water change even without soaking one’s feet in it? TOP

A. Water, salt and the metal in the unit interact with each other to produce ions. These ions will neutralize everything they come in contact with including toxins that are in tap and filtered water. Depending on geographical location, approximately 20-40% of what you see in the water comes from the debris in the water, and the remaining 60-80% comes from the client's body.

 

Is it necessary to add salt to the water before an ION Bath session? TOP

A. Yes, it is necessary to add salt to the water in order for it to be conductive enough. Typically, 1 capful of salt is enough. However, when using a brand new array it may be necessary to use 2 capfuls of salt. The unit has a salt sensor and will alert you when you need to add more salt. We recommend using a high quality sea salt.

Additional information:

• If you have heavy chlorinated water you may have to add additional salt to act as a catalyst to get the array to bubble.
• If you have a soft water system you may not have to add any salt at all.
• You may have to add more salt with a new array for the first several sessions to dissolve any residual oil left on the array from manufacturing.

 

How many sessions are the arrays good for?TOP

Each array can deliver 50 half an hour sessions and if properly maintained, can deliver up to 75 half an hour sessions.

 

What diseases or conditions can be treated with the ION Bath? TOP

A. The ION Bath does not heal, treat or cure disease or any condition. It helps pull toxins out of the body. If a patient's problem is caused by a toxic buildup that the ION Bath helps dissolve, it may be diminished by the detoxification, but certainly not cured. Regular sessions with the ION Bath gives people a greater sense of well being as it supports the body’s natural detoxification process.

 

How often can someone have an ION Bath session? TOP

A. An initial series of 10-12 foot baths (no more than twice a week) is recommended, then you can do a session once a month or once every 3 months. For those suffering from health challenges, the frequency may need to be reduced. This is because their bodies could go into a "healing" mode after a session, during which they may feel tired or lethargic. Some people feel lethargic immediately afterwards, and feel the benefits over the following days. Some time is required for the body to recover fully, and a follow-up session should not be given for a few days, or until they feel fully recovered.

 

After a session, will I be restricted in my activities? TOP

A. No, you can go about your usual daily business. A possible effect however, is that you may feel tired directly after the treatment session and feel the benefits over the next few days.

 

Who cannot have an ION Bath session?TOP

• People with a pacemaker or arrhythmia
• People with an organ transplant for less than three years
• People who take heart regulating medications
• People on medications related to psychotic episodes and/or seizures
• People with open wounds that would be exposed to the water
• Pregnant or lactating women

• Normal Liver And Kidney Function
• General Circulation And Metabolism
• Reduced Arthritis Pain
• Less Headaches And Migraines
• Reduced Menstrual Pain
• Balanced Hormones with PMS
