The IonCleanse® operates by converting AC electricity into low power DC electricity, which then passes through a patented electrode system that sits in a footbath. This process splits the water molecule into positively charged hydrogen ions (H+) and negatively charged hydroxide ions (OH-). These ions then move throughout the body and neutralize oppositely charged particles, which are pulled out of the body through osmosis via the skin surface in contact with the water.
Ions are charged atoms that have either gained or lost electrons, creating a magnetic field that can attract and neutralize oppositely charged particles. Osmosis is the scientific process by which particles move through a membrane from an area of lower concentration to an area of higher concentration. In the case of the IonCleanse®, the higher concentration refers to the ion field created by the array in the water while the unit is running.
The array is placed in the water alongside the hands, feet, or body while a low level direct current is delivered to the array, causing the metals within the array to generate positively and negatively charged ions by separating oxygen and hydrogen in the water. The polarity setting is determined by the practitioner using litmus paper or muscle testing. The long-term effectiveness of the IonCleanse® is dependent on the individual’s willingness to make other life-enhancing changes.
