What is Amps?

What is Amps? Amps is the ‘volume’ of electrons. Think of a waterfall,  the wider the water fall the more volume of water. There are several ways you can increase the volume of electrons in the footbath. One is by adding salt which is a conductive material. Another by adding more current. We also use a copper footbath tub which is a conductive material again increasing the Amps. Anything that is conductive allows more electrons to move thru the water. The electrons bombard the H2O molecule breaking it up in to ions. The higher the Amps the more electrons therefor more ions.

Other units don’t allow you to control Current. They run a straight 24 volt current thru and only allow you to increase the Amps by adding salt. Well what happens if you want to decrease the Amps? You can not take the salt out of the water so you will either have to dump the foot bath water and start over or add more water to dilute it which defeats the whole purpose of osmosis. The OPTIMUM units allow you to control the Current there by allowing you to have full control over the Amps (increasing or decreasing). Using Salt to increase your Amps is the cheap way to do it. Even the more expensive units like AMD Ioncleanse doesn’t allow you to control the Current.

Most of the units out in the market operate only as high as 1.4 to 2.5 AMPS. OPTIMUM standard models run as high as 3.00 AMPS & our new OPTIMUM ES8000i Professional runs as high as 5.5 AMPS. OPTIMUM detox foot spa units are the most powerful & safest machines on the market.

NEGATIVE IONS vs. POSITIVE IONS

 The harmful positive ion (kation) is a particle that loses an electron. The healthful negative ion (anion) gains an electron in the valency orbit; that is it increases the ability to absorb and utilize oxygen and reduces any excess of harmful serotonin.

These two small invisible electrified particles have an effect on our physical and mental well-being and we are constantly bombarded with negative and positive ions (eg. polluted air). The negative ions make us feel good, they destroy harmful bacteria. The positive ions make us feel bad (TV. screen produces positive ions).

If the positive ions occur naturally in sufficient numbers, for instance during the onset of the commonly known hot and dry desert winds, the winds cause depression, nausea, insomnia, irritability, lassitude, migraine, asthma attacks, and also affect the normal function of the thyroid glands. Biochemically speaking, the body becomes exhausted and this can lead to an increase in accidents, violent crime and suicides. These can be counteracted with the beneficial negative ions.

Negative Ions are the good ions. Positive ions are depleting. You want negative ions NOT positive ions. The units on the market that claim their machine can create more negative ions or positive ions depending on which mode the unit is set too is not only inaccurate but why would you want positive ions?

COPPER Tub vs. PLASTIC Tub (detox foot bath)

  • Our OPTIMUM FOCUS Copper Tub is used for optimum footbath treatment. The copper acts as an additional conductor thereby making the treatment all that more powerful. One will get more life out of the OPTIMUM FOCUS water module due to the conductivity of the copper there by less current is ran from the unit to achieve the same AMPs.
  • Copper also resonates a certain healing frequency. People wear copper on their body for healing.
  • The tub is handmade and 100% copper with no beryllium. Beryllium is a carcinogen and it is what creates the green patina, so in essence you don’t have to polish the tubs.
  • A Plastic tub is not a conductive material so as the energy comes out of the water module the energy dissipates as it moves away from the water module. With the copper tub it is amplified because copper is a conductor.

A New Way To Detox

In the 21st century, people are living longer or better. However, people are also subject to more toxins than ever before. The process of detoxification can vary. Some people have already learned of the power of the foot spa detox, while others may choose a detoxification diet that includes powders or pills specifically designed to promote detoxification. The effects of detoxification systems may vary from person-to-person, and those who are not happy with the results they are seeing may need to seek out a new way to detox.

The Benefits of Detox

500 years ago, there were not the same toxins to watch out for. Factories did not constantly belch smog into the air, car exhaust did not exist and neither did cigarettes. Foods were not processed with all sorts of unwanted chemicals. Furthermore, there was much more of an interest in short term survival and long term health was not a priority. Today things are very different. The amount of chemicals we are subjected to every day is staggering, and health science has advanced to the point where humans can live longer and healthier than ever before. A successful detoxification can only enhance this reality.

A New Way to Detox

The old methods of detox involved either complex, potentially unpleasant and expensive medical procedures or elaborate diets that often did not work, were uncomfortable, and whose effects only lasted the limited term of the diet. Fortunately, there is a new way to detox: The foot spa detox. The foot spa detox offered by Optimum Focus is a cellular cleansing ionic detoxification to system that uses low-risk electricity to negate free radicals and promote effective toxin elimination. The Optimum Focus Detoxification system is the most powerful one of its kind.

Detoxification Through a Foot Spa Detox

The foot spa detox is far less invasive than either a medical procedure or an unusual diet, but can still offer benefits as varied as clear skin to a reduction in the effects of aging. If you can take a foot bath, you can use a foot spa detox. Just order one of Optimum Focus’ detox footbath systems, follow the instructions provided, and use it for 35 minutes a few times a week. In addition to the pleasant sensation many users enjoy, you’ll be amazed at how you can see it working, and you just might end up feeling better than you ever have before.

DUAL Polarity vs. SINGLE Polarity?

There are a few Detox Footbath systems on the market who differentiate themselves by offering Dual Polarity, which is just reversing of the polarity. Plain & simple this is is a marketing gimmick which  provides no additional benefit.

Here is why:

  1. FALSE: Detox Footbath units using Dual Polarity state by switching Polarity (simply changing direction of the DC current flow.. from negative to positive & vice versa) which create more Negative Ions or Positive Ions depending on the so called ‘Polarity’. REASON FALSE: A DC (direct current) Current can ONLY move from Negative polarity to Positive polarity. NO WAY can it move  from Positive Polarity to Negative Polarity which would go against the law of physics for DC current (details).
  2. FALSE: Detox Footbath units w Dual Polarity state Positive Ions or Negative Ions are necessary based  on the person’s PH bodies. REASON FALSE: The good ions are the Negative Ions (anti-oxidants). The bad ions are the Positive Ions (free radicals), (refer to click here for more details). Who wants the free radicals???
  3. By switching the polarity, the plated material on the anode ring (positive polarity) is released in to the footbath water (details) from the all the previous footbath waters. Yuck.
  4. FALSE CLAIM: Detox Footbath units with Dual Polarity state their units modifies the water’s PH level based on the PolarityREASON FALSE: The PH level can ONLY be modified if the water is removed at EITHER the Anode ring or Cathode ring (the water molecule  H2O has become unstable & the  H+ (acidic water) is at the Anode ring or OH- (alkaline water) is at the Cathode ring.
