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,

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!

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.

One Optimum Focus Detox Foot bath

 I had my OPTIMUM Focus Footbath in the trunk of my car last summer when I visited a friend from college days.  She plays tennis nearly every day, and had developed a persistent, annoying pain in her heel.  After dinner, I treated her to a footbath as we chatted.  She was surprised at the dark red foamy condition of the water at the end of the bath. When we met again the next morning, she was elated to tell me that she could not remember when she had slept better, and the pain in her foot was much less – she could walk easily again.  All that with just one footbath!

OPTIMUM detox ionic foot spas 

Hi Diann:

I recently sprained both my ankles at the same time.  The left one was sprained really bad with the muscle on the outside of my leg extremely sensitive as it was pulled really bad as a result of the sprain.  Two days after the sprain I used my Optimum detox foot bath and after the 20 minutes was done I could actually touch the muscle that was extremely sensitive.

Sincerely,

A. D.

WHAT QUESTIONS SHOULD I BE ASKING WHEN SHOPPING FOR A IONIC 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

OPTIMUM FOCUS FOOTBATH BRAVO

FANTASTIC RESULTS AFTER JUST ONE TREATMENT!!! I HAVE SEVERE OSTEOARTHRITIS AND OSTEOPOROSIS. I DON’T CARE TO TAKE PRESCRIPTION “MEDICATION”. i HAVE BEEN USING IONIC CALCIUM AND OTHER SUPPORT MINERALS IN CLEAN WATER WITH APPLE CIDER VINEGAR. SO FAR THAT CRACK IN MY LEFT FEMORAL HEAD HAS HEALED QUITE NICELY! NOW MY ATTENTION IS DIRECTED TO HAIRLINE FRACTURES IN T12, IN MY SPINE. I BELIEVE THE LESS IMPEDIMENT I HAVE IN MY BODY TISSUES, THE FASTER AND MORE EFFECTIVELY I’LL HEAL. ALSO, AND THIS IS THE BEST PART, AFTER JUST ONE TREATMENT, THE RELIEF OF PAIN FROM INFLAMATION WAS GONE!!! I STOPPED TAKING THE PRESCRIBED “MEDS” THE NEXT DAY. I HAVE NOT TAKEN ANY SINCE! I AM BACK TO BICYCLE RIDING, WITHOUT ANY AFTER EFFECTS. I HAVE A MUCH MORE COMFORTABLE AND EFFECTIVE RANGE OF MOTION AT THE GYM AS WELL. I WAS SO IMPRESSED WITH THIS DEVICE, THAT WITHIN A WEEK I PURCHASED MY OWN. I AM NOW A PRACTITIONER AND HAVE BEEN TREATING FRIENDS WITH SIMILAR DISCOMFORTS, MUCH TO THIER DELITE!!! I AM WRITING THIS JUST AFTER FINISHING MY FOURTH TREATMENT.

My Experiences as a Practitioner

 I bought my focus footbath in august 2007 and have given footbaths to 52 people ….have had various results…..all good……some have experienced better elimination and deeper more restful sleep…..one young lady noticed her skin became clearer………..all have felt more balanced and relaxed after the footbath…..and many feel an increase in energy ….i have done 16 footbaths on myself and my colon is working perfectly every day and my skin looks clearer…..people are constantly commenting on how good my skin looks…..it also calms me when i am agitated and unable to focus……everyone has felt good after the footbath…..i have not had one negative comment……..and i have made back my entire investment back within 3 months……….i am a massage therapist and often people will book a massage with the footbath……….it has increased my business just by word of mouth [ i call it the coconut wireless advertising] ….i give everyone an emergen-c packet with their filtered water and have a pitcher next to them so they can drink enough water which aids the entire process …….it is an excellent way to help heal and balance the body in a non invasive manner which is safe and relaxing………………..

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
