WHAT QUESTIONS SHOULD I BE ASKING WHEN SHOPPING FOR A FOOTBATH?

  • How high does the amperage go to? (what is this?) answer: at least 3.0 Amps
  • What is the wattage? (what is this?) answer: ideally 150 watts

  • Can you control the amperage by the current or is it only controlled by adding salt to the footbath water? (what is this?) answer: amperage should be controlled by current not salt

  • What is the frequency/Hertz the power unit is running at? (what is this?) answer: a frequency that is healthy to the body, do not want 60 Hz

  • Is the power unit running at single polarity or dual? (what is this?) answer: single

  • What protection mechanisms does the power unit offer? (what is this?)

  • Is the power unit built in to the footbath tub or is it separate? answer: separate so you can use in any type of  tub .. even a bath tub

  • Is the footbath tub made of plastic or a conductive material? (what is this?) answer: conductive material such as copper, plastic has no conductive components

  • If the water module is using a copper plate, is it 100% pure copper or does it have beryllium in it? (what is this?) answer: 100% pure copper, beryllium is a carcinogen

  • Is the water module disposable, or do you have to replace the plates manually? how many baths do you get out of the water module? (what is this?)

  • Is the water module built in to the footbath tub or is it separate? answer: separate so you can use in any type of  tub .. even a bath tub

  • How is the water module cleaned and how do they disinfect it? answer: you want to have access to the plates to remove the mineral and toxin build up.. hospital grade disinfectant is necessary.

  • Does the unit require a wristband connection to the body in order for the footbath to run? (what is this?) answer: do not want wristband. The machine is not safe and is not grounded. The wristband is to ground the person.

  • What salt is used: high quality with trace minerals or processed salt? (what is this?) answer: a high quality salt

Is the WRISTBAND A Good Thing?

 A wristband is simply used to ground the body since the unit is so cheaply made the unit itself is not grounded. This is a marketing gimmick when the say it is ‘to complete the circuitry’ or ‘stimulate the upper body’.

The wrist bands are designed to prevent the destruction of CMOS devices.  (CMOS is the deposition of doping and etching of a Metal Oxide on Saphire device, in short an Integrated Circuit).  Most units on the market use TR (Transformer Rectifier) concepts in producing their output, this concept does not utilize CMOS substrate devices. We often build static as we walk and move, this is more pronounced if we are wearing anything nylon.  The wrist band is conductive and conducts the static electricity from the body to ground.  This prevents the charge from going through the CMOS device.  If a charge goes through a CMOS integrated circuit, it can destroy it instantly, most often it damages it which causes a diminishing deterioration until the ultimate failure.  During the “slow death” of the device performance becomes unreliable, unrepeatable then ultimately the device fails.

The conductive wristbands may or may not require any liquid or gel to add to the conductivity of the band to ground.  This depends on the quality of the grounding strap and the wristband.

Most circuit designers “know their stuff” and design the circuits such that the input and output pins of the integrated circuits are connected into circuitry such that they are buffered from outside forces.  Our units have the proper buffering so that stray voltages cannot and do not reach the components that can be affected by static.  In addition the care of our unit is electrically connected to earth ground, this will direct any stray charge that even gets to the case to ground and protect the components as well.

The ground strap is a marketing gimmick.  Think about it, your computers and cell phones have large scale integration in their operating systems and you do not wear a ground strap when working with either of them.  Why would you need grounding for something as simplistic as the power supplies in a footbath?  The control circuitry may have some active devices that can be damages as we do, but with proper configuration this can be protected

The wristband has nothing to do with the footbath process. The key to the ionic detox footbath is the ions from the salt & water that are interacting with your body, not the current or so called ‘circuitry’ that these companies claim. WE (Optimum detox foot baths) DO NOT USE WRISTBANDS since our unit has a chassis ground for all internal assemblies to stop any voltage potential ever being on the case

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?

Waaay better than the foot bath I used at my colon therapist office

 Diann,

Wow!  I used the Optimum foot bath last nite, I was so amazed.  Waaay better than the foot bath I used at my colon therapist office.  It was so amazing I talked my husband who stands in lead getting exposure to x-ray while performing heart surgery all day to do one too.  He was totally amazed and we both slept so well.  Thanks a lot!  We’re super excited we now have the foot bath as a relaxation tool.

Cellulite Dimples

 

I decided I needed to be my own “test subject” for the detox foot bath.

Today I performed a 6th detox bath on myself.

Since starting these trements I have a good deal more energy.

My skin is prone to breakouts and (knock on wood) it is clearer.

I have age related cellulite…I’m under 120 pounds and relatively healthy so the cellulite is not due to weight issues.

After my fifth session I noticed the dimpled skin on my thighs is noticeably lessened and the dimpled skin on my upper arms has virtually disappeared.

I suffer from severe sleep issues and I have yet to experience any noticeable difference in the quantity of sleep but I am sleeping much deeper; going into REM stage.  REM is something I rarely experience.

I will be able to get in two more sessions prior to a scheduled surgical procedure (foot surgery) and will have to put off subsequent sessions for approximately two weeks.

Question…should I take up with the current cycle or wait an additional week and begin a second cycle?

I will be a walking testimonial to my clients…

I will contact you soon with a few questions.

Thank you for all you help and advise.

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.

BUYERS GUIDE

Tool

My experience with the Focus Footbath has been remarkable.  I am interested in detoxifying my body and have been for many years and I felt this would be a wonderful way to do it.  I am a massage therapist and this interest is not only for myself but also to use for my clients. 

Before I use this with a client, I always balance test them to see how often and how long a soak should be and at what setting.  I must add here that I did NOT do the same thing for me, which was not a smart move.  I simply went by the presumption that I could detox as fast as I wanted.  I was soaking every three days for 30 minutes at a time at a setting of 1.6.  I went on like this for 21 days (7 soaks) and was so excited about the way I was feeling.  My stamina increased and my joints were no longer stiff.  The aching in my hips, that had been there for several years, left completely.  I had suffered with eczema for about 15 years and it was gone with no traces.  All of this was so much more than I could have imagined.  All was perfect in my world.

The next thing that I experienced was a huge healing crisis.  If you are not familiar with that term, it can happen when too many toxins are released too fast.  I ended up in bed for two weeks feeling like I had been hit with a truck.  After that two week period was over, I felt so good…much better than I could remember in a long while.  What a lesson for me.  Now, I always test myself to see how often, how long and at what setting for each of my soaks.  Since I have started treating myself with the same concern and respect that I do my clients, I have had absolutely no adverse reactions or discomfort with the releasing of toxins from my body and am feeling on top of the world. 

At this point, my energy level has increased so much, my family and friends are amazed.  Well, actually, I am too.  My advice to anyone who does this is to be gentle with yourself and never try to push the healing too fast. 

Blessings to you,

Aletha

Like an AMEX card, I don’t leave home without it!

Hi,

I just wanted to let you know how absolutely thrilled I am with my continued success with the OPTIMUM detox foot bath! Seriously, it’s almost comical the results I am getting.  Just today a client who is on her 5th bath stated that her bunion had shrunk by 50%! I didn’t even know that the footbath could do this. Another client quit smoking after her 7th bath and another after 6 months of continued treatments has lost 25 lbs without even dieting!  I work as an energy healer and trauma release practitioner and I would have never thought a” plug-in” device could assist me in my work. The science makes sense but I was still skeptical. Well, I call the OPTIMUM detox foot bath my personal assistant. It’s got my back and accelerates the good work I’m already doing. This little box has boosted both my sales and profile as a practitioner.  I recently made the front page of a local Los Angeles paper with it!   Also, if it wasn’t for your companies exceptional customer service and knowledge I probably would have never bought the machine.  I appreciate your continued support. Like an AMEX card,  I don’t leave home without it!

the most powerful cleanse I have ever had

Hi Diann:

My loaner arrived Monday at 5pm and I want to thank you so much for organizing and suggesting the loaner.  another positive feature on the optimum focus compared to others – – it is minor and nontechnical – – it is a practical feature where the water module / exciter stay firmly on bottom of the foot bath container.   Where as the aqua chi the water module does not stay in place & is always tilting one way or another or you gotta hole it with your feet.  They make a container that has an indentation to hold the unit in place – – but…. if you use plastic liners or a different container you can’t use it. – so in essence it is awkward.  And the AMD hooks on to the side of the container – making it not as versatile with different foot containers.

I did a bath and it was the most powerful cleanse I have ever had.  I had the meter at 1.3.

Thanks again.
Emily


Serious Mold Poisoning

 Hello,

I just thought to send you a note and follow up on our first month’s experience of offering the Focus Footbath to out clients. As you are aware, we currently house some of the finest state-of-the-art healing technologies all under the same roof. Nobody else in the US is doing what we are doing.  Client’s come to us with various illness’ and disorders. I have a client who was diagnosed with serious mold poisoning. She had tried every remedy both western and holistic. Nothing had worked. She came to seek out our technologies and I must admit nothing helped her….until the footbath.  With her first bath she noticed an immediate shift in her body. Though she could not pin point it she new it was a positive. I recommended the 14 session deep cleanse which she did and by the end she felt like she was reborn (her words)!  I must admit I too was surprised.  In addition, the odor from her water was incredibly putrid. I had to put on a dust mask to clean after each session!  The irony of this all is that we have over $150,000 worth of equipment here and the $1500 footbath is bringing in all the business! I am seeing positive results daily with our clients too numerous to mention.  It’s getting really exciting.   Thank for forcing me to do a footbath myself!
