Please don't take this wrong from what I am about
to say. It seems that you have already made up your mind, regardless of what "proof" I may give. From my perspective, it seems that you are perfectly willing to explain away the obvious implications of what I am presenting to you with a rather far fetched alternative explanation of your own.
The situation of the man that was a former smoker is a prime example. He told me that he had already had several sessions with the ionic foot detox, and that he had excreted a lot of dark oily and smelly substance each time that he did it. Forgive me, but it is an insult to the intelligence to be asked to believe your suggestion that the pores of his feet harbored an endless supply of tar and nicotine in them. Come on man! I am going to become more specific in my refutation of your point of view here.
The real issue is- Is the skin capable of excreting significant quantities of toxins from the body when it is stimulated to do so? The answer is yes! This can be accomplished through the proper kinetic, osmotic, thermal, or bioenergetic stimulation. Many physicians use these methods of detoxification as a central core of what they do for their patients.
I will use the doctors at the Hansa Center as an example. Their 2 main detox treatments are the FIR sauna, and the Ionic Foot Detox. The FIR sauna employs thermal and infrared spectrums of energy to coax detoxification of the body from the skin covering the entire body. The Ionic Foot Detox uses negatively charged electrons to produce ions in the water that penetrate the body to generate a detoxification of the body through the skin on the soles of the feet.
I will give yet another example of another case involving FIR detoxification through the skin that cannot easily be explained away. I met a man at the Hansa Center that had a long term diagnosis of Parkinson's Disease for 13 years by conventional physicians. Two years before he went to the Hansa Center he was finally diagnosed by an LLMD with Lyme Disease and coinfections. He said that he became even more debilitated after his treatment started. He said that he almost died 3 times and had "white light experiences." After the last episode he made arrangements to go to the Hansa Center as a last resort because he didn't want to die. He is only 33 years old. We became friends while he and I were there.
When I met him on his first day I could tell that there was a lot that was seriously wrong with him, just by looking at him and conversing with him. He had a catatonic stare,, moved robotically, and trembled. He was diagnosed with Lyme disease, coinfections, and carried a very high level of ammonia in his brain and globally as well. Dr. J. explained to him that a lot of his symptoms and debilitation was caused by the ammonia.
This young man had FIR sauna and Ionic Foot Detox treatments every day. On the very first day he was sitting in the waiting room talking to me in between treatments. Then he left to do a 30 minute FIR sauna treatment. When he came out of the sauna to the waiting room he absolutely reeked of ammonia, whereas I had not even noticed that odor previously. He had toweled down after he finished the treatment, but he obviously was still excreting ammonia in the waiting room.
On another day he was in the same room as my brother-in-law having an Ionic Foot Detox treatment. I was sitting in the room and talking to them while they were being treated. When the "Parkinsons Man" was finished with his detox treatment, I picked up his tray and emptied it in the sink for him. I bent over and took a big sniff. It strongly smelled of ammonia. I was utterly repulsed by the disgusting contents of his detoxification tray.
Since he had just had the ionic foot detox, am I really to believe that he somehow had an endless supply of ammonia that was only locked up in the pores of his feet, but did not actually come from the interior of his body, and was excreted through the skin of his feet? I am challenging you to think outside of your narrow paradigm. I am simply reporting my observations here.
This young man was astounded by his day to day progress at the clinic. He came to me every day and reported his astonishment at his daily improvements. He would stand there and move various parts of his body in ways that he was not able to do on the previous day. Am I really to believe that his liver and kidneys somehow immediately and spontaneously revived, and are to account for the elimination of the ammonia? I confess to you that I had to turn away because tears welled up in my eyes when i beheld his joy. Are you willing to claim that there must be some mistake, and that his skin didn't really experience an enhanced amount of excretion of toxins, and that it was only my imagination?
I have a condition in my hands called Dupuytren's Contracture. This condition causes a spontaneous abnormal scarring of the fascia layer under the skin of the palms and fingers. It causes nodules and cords to form, which will permanently contract the fingers into a clenched position into the palms. If it is not corrected, and left untreated until it is completely clenched into the palm, the only solution is amputation. I have a very bad case of it, and have had 3 extensive surgeries on my left hand and 1 surgery on my right hand so far.
I had the last surgery last August. There was a long zig-zag incision starting low in the palm of my hand and extending to the tip of my little finger. The surgeon basically filleted the skin of my finger to get to the extensively scarred fascia tissue, which he excised. He closed it up with about
The website of the company that made my Ionic Foot Detox showed before and after photos of an individual that had a withered hand, and had used his Ionic Foot Detox equipment to help to correct the condition. Instead of placing his feet into the tray of water, he set the tray on a table and placed both forearms into the tray. I have seen some of the patients at the Hansa Center do the same thing.
I theorized that there would be some benefit in doing that same treatment to my hand. I know that the surgeon injected several medications into my hand during and after the surgery. I also know that surgery causes the production of metabolic toxins in the body. I felt that it would be beneficial to remove them. I also was aware that the negatively charged ions would be beneficial to my healing, but I did not want to do it while the incision was still raw. I waited 7 weeks before I did my first treatment on my hand. The incision was completely healed and scar tissue was forming. There was no seepage of fluids/blood and all of the scabs had fallen off about
2-3 weeks previously.
When I did my first treatment there was a lot of dark reddish brown "old blood" particles that floated on the top of the water. This substance looked a lot different than any other colors that I had seen from the trays of myself or anyone else when we did the treatment. I did a treatment every other day for about
10 treatments. I noticed that every successive treatment brought out less of the "old blood". There was no longer any of that substance showing up by the 5th treatment.
If I have not yet perked up your ears, and having you realize that I just may be onto something, then I may as well stop here. Then we are not only polar opposites, we are in different universes.
I am going to leave you with a few interesting articles that may flesh out a little of what I am saying from a physicians point of view. The Mercola interview is a long one, and the part about
the FIR sauna is near the middle of the interview. The Jernigan audio is interesting, as he claims that the lymphatic system excretes an appreciable amount of its toxins from the glands in the armpits. I have read articles stating the the skin is the largest detoxification organ in the body. I will include those types of articles in future installments. Much of this is mainstream medical knowledge. Here is an interview by an an MD that uses the FIR sauna.
Here is an article by a knowledgeable MD that states that "negative electromagnetic polarity is the bodies central metabolic detoxifier". This of course is the principle that the Ionic Foot Detox works on:
Here is a 2 part article on lymphatic drainage by Dr. Jernigan. Guess what? It involves the skin!
Unfortunately I am still looking for part 2. I will post it when I find it.
Here is yet another articles. I don't think that FIR should be confused with regular thermal saunas according to the findings of these studies.
Almost Heaven- I look forward to your interaction.
We are older parents and Heather is our only child. She became so sick and debilitated that we thought that she was going to die, and everything looked so hopeless and bleak. However, God answered our prayers, and used the healing hands of Dr. J. at the Hansa Center to more than restore the health of our precious daughter. I have a moral obligation to help others that are likewise suffering!
