Meridian pathways in the body (as identified and used in acupuncture) begin or end at points on the feet. The feet have over 4000 pores, and they are the largest pores in the body. Within the fascia, the thin membranous layer located on the bottom of the foot, a large quantity of toxins are stored. For all of these reasons, the feet an ideal place in the body to both release toxins and to absorb nutrients. In La Casa’s Pedi-Detox therapy, the whole body, through the feet, is both detoxified and nourished.
La Casa’s Pedi-Detox instrument was approved in Europe as a class IIa medical device after a wealth of data documented that it is not only safe, but also effective as a whole-body detoxification treatment. The device operates by creating millions of ions, creating “bio-energetically” altered water. These ions, produced and circulating in the water that your feet rest in, enter your body through your feet. Through this “donation” of ions, the body’s energetics are increased, or simply translated, “life-energy” is given to you. And simultaneously, the ions detox the body by attracting toxins to them; the toxins are then able to be released from the body.
While you are relaxing with your feet resting comfortably in the electromagnetically altered water, you will notice that the water will start to change color. In a short while, you will see sediment accumulating. This sediment and discoloration is coming out of your body. The particles of fat and mucous residues found in the water after the foot bathing reflect the wastes that have left the body during a session. The ions have begun to neutralize and pull out tissue acid wastes.
The Pedi-Detox is especially effective in cleansing the body from heavy metals. You may see black flecks in the water as you are detoxifying. If you can grab hold of one of these small particles, and then squeeze it between your fingers, you will smell the distinctive scent of metal.
The over-all benefits of the Pedi-Detox system are:
- stimulation and balancing of the body’s energy meridians;
- re-balancing of the body’s natural electrical energy system;
- ATP production: ATP has natural body chemicals that extracts energy from your food and makes it available for numerous physiologic functions in the body. This increase in cellular ATP allows the cell to work and detoxify at a higher rate. Increasing the cells’ ability to work at a higher rate will allow the cell to withstand stressors, either physical or chemical.
- Enhances cells’ metabolism, detoxification and nutrients assimilation.
- Enhances liver and kidneys functions and detoxification.
- Prevents aging and beautifies/brightens skin complexion.
- Balances hormones, body’s pH and Yin Yang.
- Improves blood circulation and nourishes the blood.
- Improves arthritis, rheumatism and water retention.
- Balances glucose levels, lipids, and blood pressure.
- Improves various enzymatic activities in the body.
- Strengthens immunity and prevents diseases.
To receive the maximum benefit of the Pedi-Detox system, an initial six treatments are recommended during a four to six week period. A subsequent monthly maintenance treatment is advised. Some individuals have chosen to continue the treatments on a more frequent basis and found that to eliminate metal toxicity they need to have two treatments a week for a longer period of time, in some cases up to six months.
The body will continue to release toxins up to 48 hours after the initial treatment. You will need to wait the full 48 hours before having the next treatment.
