The IonCleanse® system is based on the action of an electric current. A small amount of salt is added to the water in the foot tub after the array is placed into it. The control unit is turned on after the person’s feet are placed into the water. A small direct current is delivered through the array’s metal plates into the water which creates positive and negative ionized water.
The particles in the body are charged with ionized water. The particles are pulled out of the body through the skin. These particles and/or toxins will leave the body via the feet, which have the largest pores in the human body, while other toxins will leave the body through sweat, urine, and other natural body functions.
