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

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.
