The IonCleanse by AMD is a safe, non-invasive total body detoxification and relaxation system. It's patented and proprietary technology sends biocompatible electrical frequencies into the water.
This elicits a relaxation response. Concurrently, these frequencies create an ionic field that cleanses and purifies the body through the power of ions.
The IonCleanse process ionizes the water as H20 is split into OH - and H + ions. These ions attract and neutralize oppositely charged toxins. The toxins are drawn out in the water during the foot bath, and also released through
body's own detox pathways up to 4 or 5 days post-cleanse. When the session is over, the user feels calm, relaxed, and focused.
Typical session times vary from 10-30 minutes, based primarily upon age. There are no harmful side-effects, and the process is painless and non-invasive.
The IonCleanse by AMD is not a medical device, so we can make no claims regarding treatment of a particular disease or ailment.
The IonCleanse process helps the body to gently detox. The removal of toxins from the body will help boost immune function, digestive function, and allow the body to do what it is supposed to do naturally. Additionally, as toxins exit, the internal environment of the body becomes more "normal."
It is possible to see various objects in the water. While there has been no study done on the foot bath water, many of the members of the group have taken pictures and analyzed elements in the water and have determined they were pinworms or other parasites.
Session times will vary with age and overall health. The following recommendations should be followed when using the 316 plates. If you are using the 304 plates, reduce the session times by 30%.
Children 7 years old and up with parent's consent and parent MUST BE PRESENT.
Adolescents and adults up to 50 years in age, can do 30-minute sessions every other day or three times a week for a series of 10 sessions. After the first series, feel free to explore longer session times or increased frequency.
Now that you have a good idea as to how your body will react, you can check in with yourself and decide if you would benefit from longer session times or an increase in usage. If you do increase time or frequency, do it slowly. For example, go from 30 to 35 minutes, or from 3 times per week to 4 times per week. Some clients will use the IonCleanse by AMD for up to 60 minutes several times per week. If you feel overly tired or fatigued, you’ve probably gone further than you need to. Dial the time or frequency down if this happens.
For adults over the age of 50, we recommend 30-minute sessions twice a week, unless you are in a weakened condition. In which case, session time can be reduced to as little as 10 minutes. Follow the same guidelines previously mentioned after the first 10 sessions.
Most clients will eventually be able to go down to a maintenance program where they use the equipment once or twice per week. Age, health, and lifestyle are the biggest indicators as to when this will happen. For example, a 40-year-old may be ok with a maintenance program after 40 sessions. However, if he or she has had challenging health issues or persistent toxic exposure, it may take 60 to 80 sessions before a maintenance program is enough.
As a general rule of thumb, start with shorter session times, 10 to 15 minutes if you are ever unsure of a person’s health condition.
Special Needs Children
Special needs children require a more aggressive protocol. Unless instructed otherwise by your practitioner, use the IonCleanse by AMD 2 days on, 1 day off indefinitely. Initial session times are determined by age:
2 - 4: 15 minutes
5 - 8: 20 minutes
9 - 14: 25 minutes
15 and over: 30 minutes
Special needs children are more prone to detoxification reactions, or Herxheimer reactions. They tend to display an increase in behaviors before things improve. This is quite normal; however, you always have the ability to cut down on time or frequency as you or your practitioner deem necessary.
Conversely, if your child is not showing any changes, feel free to increase time and frequency as necessary. Similar to adults, some children have very compromised systems and may require up to 60 minutes of usage several times per week. Adjust the time gradually and see if your child responds.
As with any detoxification program, hydration and supplementation are helpful. Drink enough water during and after the IonCleanse sessions. We also recommend taking mineral supplements to further enhance the process. We do not have any brand-specific recommendations. Please refer to your practitioner for guidance
