I used to spend most of the time staring at the water, wondering about all the ways in which they could be 'rigging' the device to make the water dark and cloudy, waiting for the aha! moment.

The problem was that I felt great afterward. My hair and skin softened, and I felt lighter inside. Same for my daughter. She also had a more dramatic effect. She was often hyper-reactive (lyme symptom). After a foot detox, her personality would become much 'softer.' In fact, I could tell by her personality, when she needed a foot detox. Effects are cumulative.

I like the idea of detoxing metals through the skin, rather than through more traditional ways, if that is, in fact, the case. Feels a lot easier. Far infrared sauna is another example of detoxing through the skin.

The marvel foot detox pads have been a godsend for me. When I read about them on here I was totally skeptical - did not understand how they could possibly work. But I was in such pain in my foot I could not stand to pressure on it to walk. Decided to order a small 20 package to see. I was amazed because they worked miracles for me. I initially used them 3 or 4 nights in a row and the pain disappeared. I don't know anything about a detox foot bath but I sure would recommend the pads. I keep them on hand and whenever I start to have a couple of twinges of severe pain in my foot I stick one on that night. I bought mine off of ebay but I saw Avon is selling them now also. I think they are cheaper through Marvel. Plus if you buy them direct they will give you free ones after so many purchases. Good luck to you!

Is this treatment really worth $55 a session?

Foggy -- Initially, I paid $300 for 10 sessions a few years ago. When LD got activated again, and my daughter began having symptoms too, I decided to purchase a system because the prices had gone up to $40 per session. Also, the drive was far, with high gas prices, etc., (and the assistant was annoying -- not very sensitive)

$55 seems high to me. Can you check to see if there are others offering the service for less?

If you cannot find a cheaper price, you might try one or two foot detox baths to see what you think about it. If your health improves a lot, it might be worth it. You could also ask if you could purchase several sessions at once for a discount. The machines range from $1000 to $2700.

I have heard GREAT things (like kyoung comments) about the foot detox pads, an even cheaper alternative. I didn't know these were available when I bought the machine, but it is the same principle. There was a long thread last November or December about them. Search foot detox in subject line only and it should come up.

Hope this helps.

Claire

I started with the foot pads with good results. Then I tried a series of foot baths with even better results. So I bought an EBPro and love love love it.

I caught that news clip last night. I was lucky to know someone who owns one and while I was visiting, I was able to do them daily for a month and I think they did help. it was interesting to see how the water turned different colors for different people.

$50 is a little pricey though.

I believe that the foot detox treatment (not the pads which I use and really like) is the same treatment which was covered in a tv news show here.

I think it was Channel 8 which used a college physics class. They put a battery in some solution and said it was the same thing. The battery generates some kind of reaction with the water. If you look up "foot detox bath treatment hoax" there's all kinds of opinions on the net.

One woman paid over $150 bucks for this treatment and some kind of wand treatment.

Personally, I feel some people try to make money off so-called treatments which are completely worthless.

But hey, some people say they doooo work, so who am I? I just don't have any the money....

Lyme has taken so much.........

I can get them for 25.00 a session by paying $250 for 10 sessions.

I tried it once for free. I was impressed. I haven't gone back yet though because of the cost.

What about buying a machine for yourself, and then selling treatments or renting out. I know a few people around here who have done that.

Any more input on which machines are best, cheepest, easiest to use? Websites to order them from?

I know of the EBPro, the IonCleanse, and the BioCleanse.

I liked the EBPro, but I think you can vary the programs a little more with the IonCleanse. I have not tried the BioCleanse, but it is the less costly of the three, so definitely look into it.

There may be others, too. Google "Foot Detox Baths."

That is a great idea of purchasing one and renting it out... Or maybe there could be a few individuals willing to go in on one, and trade off days of use?

Good morning.

For those of you who do a foot detox bath at home, what do you put in the foot bath?

Epson salt?

Just curious.

I like the idea of just soaking my feet in a foot bath of warm water (my feet are almost always cold, cold, cold).

Now that is if I can keep the children's feet and hands out, the dogs out, my husband out....it may actually be a relaxing, rejuvenating experience.

(That is why I never get to take a bath. You'd think I had a neon sign over my head saying "please don't let me have 5 minutes to myself!")

Hugs,

Geneal

Geneal -- we use the IonCleanse and it requires a little salt and regular tap water. The water does have to be as warm as you can tolerate. I had to buy a plastic tub to place the water in also, which I purchased from target. The implement or device that goes into the water has to be replaced from time to time.

Another side-note -- the first few times made me a little tired... but after that, normal. Same for my husband. I have heard this varies from individuals. I think it is always good to try a session first before buying, mainly because of the expense.

I wish we could afford a far infrared sauna, too -- I would be in detox heaven (gosh have I become a strange person?!).
