Ok... so I've got heavy metal issues... played with mercury as a child... swim in lead paint as a professional... yuk
So I was recommended to a local "alternative medicine" establishment by a friend to get a foot bath that supposed-bly (this is ats) pulls heavy
metals and toxins out of the soles of your feet.
Well... I walk into the place and there is a lady in the midst of a foot bath session; ankles deep in barley soup looking water.
The "nurse" "practitioner" tells me that different colors in the solution are indicative of different toxins... she hands me a chart:
Ammonia = kidney
Chlorine = whole body
Bubbling = gas in the gastrointestinal tract
Black = liver
Black flecks = Heavy metals
Brown = liver / pollution
Dark Green = gall bladder
Orange = stiff joints / muscular pain
Red flecks = blood clot material
White foam = mucous from lymph system
White particles = yeast
Yellow/green = kidney bladder, urinary/prostate
Oily surface = fatty lactic or uric acid
So next up in line I take off my socks and stick my feet into the warm water. The woman performing the detox adds a scoop of salt to the water and
then plugs me in.... YES SHE PUTS AN ANODE AND CATHODE into the salty brine bath that my feet are in.
"well... here ya go..."
and the water begins to make little white bubbles; before long it begins to turn yellow. 15 minutes in I'm soaking in barley soup and chlorine gas
is puffing up in my face... I think to myself... "I'd like to get my feet out of that nasty water now..." but I keep with it.
30 minutes in I've got thick barley soup with black pepper flakes.
So I was convinced and I paid for a session for the wifey.
We went back together a week later and this time the water was just a little nastier but about the same.
But wifey is getting skeptical (could you imagine that, my wife a skeptic?)
So we get into the internet research... oh Lord is there a paper trail on this one:
Well I read and read as a good scholar should... whew...
I don't know what to think now.
Apparently the colors in the water mean nothing... and nothing is actually extracted from your feet... and the anode/cathode/salt water produced all
the color changes in and of themselves...
your internal organs are now ionically balanced and more likely to function properly leaving you more likely to thereby perhaps remove toxins
uh... help guys... I still have one more session in the electrofied salty brine paid for...
What do you think?
