Nope. But interested to go to one of these days. Sobrang busy and hectic yung sked ko. If someone could just post on their experiences about this, I would appreciate it.

Is it true na makikita mo kung ano ung sakit mo just by the toxins that you release on the ionic water?

Be careful on choosing the products, most were found out in HK to be fakes. The machines just emit heavy metals into the water in the footbaths.

change "most" to "all". it's just another scam out to part the gullible from their money. check this out:

DIRTY FOOT CURE

Reader Hayley Chambers of Henderson, Nevada, saw our item last week about UK kids getting magical foot-baths that were claimed to “detoxify” them. We offered readers our previous reference to this scam at www.randi.org/jr/100303.html (do a search for “Staggs”). Now, it turns out that partners Barbara Auer and Bonnie Ballinger, of Aloha Solutions, are touting their IonCleanse Footbath – which is quite the same fake instrument we wrote about back in 2003. Says Hayley:

Regarding those ridiculous “detox” footbaths, I would like to send my congratulations to a local reporter in Las Vegas. Beth Fisher of KVBC ran a pretty good test, in which she had the footbath company owner run the machine without any feet in the tub. The owner had predicted that the water would not change color. Of course, it did, because the color change was actually from oxidation of the metal rods, not toxins. The inevitable excuses were classic. Here’s a link to the story: http://tinyurl.com/3xzrlv

We need more stories like this in the local news. Way to go, Beth!

Agreed, Hayley! A story was seldom better done!

that article was from the 6 april 2007 issue of "swift", the james randi educational foundation newsletter, emphasis mine. find out more at:

So scam lang pala yung ganito... But I wonder why this thing still proliferates, even St. Luke's has a clinic dedicated to ionic footbath...

guys, there should be a scientific experiment on this...by discovery channel or what. Kasi this device is like,...24K PHP, my Aunt is planning to buy that stuff...but for me its too unnatural for the body to release such "toxins" because first, only the sweat glands are the glands present in the skin which allows substances to be secreted. Second, one of the primary function of the skin is to keep everthing inside your body. So if something comes out...you have a disease, or just a wound. The videos on tv should show those black stuff coming out of the feet, what I mean is, when you put a wounded hand under a bucket of water, you should see red stream of blood coming out of the wound...as I watched the testimonials, the dark matter just appear, not from bubbles, not from the feet...they just appear there...


for me I would rather go with food supplements, because I dont think its that expensive, they are herbal, they came from nature, and we can be sure it is safe.

i wouldn't trust the discovery channel as far as i can throw an elephant. follow the link in my first post, print it out and show it your aunt, go to the jref website and find the article i cited as well. if you read enough of the archived material you'll also find a lot of so called "natural supplements" are nothing more than a big waste of money. another good source to check out is www.quackwatch.com

as the late carl sagan said: "extraordinary claims require extarordinary evidence".

gumagamit ba kayo nito? pa post naman kung san nyo nabibili. sabi daw kasi nakakapagreliev ng mga foot pains pag binabad mo sa mainit na tubig lalo na pag mga after workout or pede ring bago magworkout ata.

pede rin ung pag regular days lang.
