Why Does the Water Change Color?

Why Does the Water Change Color? - HEALTHandMED

Many sellers of ionic detox foot bath systems have misinformed their customers that the colors they see in the water are toxins that have exited the body miss, leading people to think foot detox is a scam.

This Is Not Entirely True...

The water color representing toxins exiting the body is mostly false. During the session, the water in the basin will always change to a brown/ orange color whether your feet are in the water or not. This is due to the electrolytic reaction involving the array, salt, water, minerals and impurities in the water. But when feet are in the water, the colors are also affected by oils being released from the sebaceous glands, the dead skin cells and the user’s own acidity/ alkalinity.

Some of the neutralized toxins will also exit the body back out through the pores of the feet due to osmosis. An unusual amount of a particular color may indicate that a person has accumulated toxins in certain areas or from certain conditions and that ionic detox is helping those areas.
