In 2003, Chief Research and Development Engineer, Quiping Hang, developed and produced the ion cleanse, a footbath which draws out chemical debris from the body. His designs have been copied and marketed all over the world and some small units are even available via Ebay for less than $200. 
The concept of the ion cleanse has been considered both a miracle cure and a hoax. In truth, the fad came and went, and few people seemed to notice that it ever existed. Many chalked it up to being another voodoo, chakra-enhancing, wellbeing cure with limited ability to change the body.
The primary sources of this article will be the author’s personal and long-term experience with the ion cleanse, which have been extensive, experimental and dramatic. Here is a personal synopsis of this experience:
At sixteen years of age, I weighted 85 lbs (normal weight for my size) and seemed to be on the verge of a bipolar disorder. Mornings were filled with a sharp tongue and uncontrolled frustration, afternoons felt better and tempers improved, and nights were filled with so much insomnia, sometimes I would go to bed and simply wait for the sun to rise.
Over time, chemical debris, heavy metals and even blood clots line the walls of your veins and arteries, preventing tissue flexibility and seriously distorting your emotional health and ability to handle stress. My father saw how much debris the ion cleanse pulled into the water and finally talked me into using it. It is recommended that adults use this for 30 minutes three times per week. At 85 lbs, I soon began using it for a minimum of two hours every day. I set it up and did my college homework while I pulled toxins from my body, which included heavy metals, tiny blood clots, parasites, mold and even anesthesia from three previous surgeries.
The difference was dramatic and noteworthy. I woke up feeling happy and well-rested. For the first time in all of my sixteen years, I went to bed and fell asleep within five minutes. My emotional health skyrocketed and I took on more classes at college, acing them all. I ate more and yet lost 6 lbs due to the reduction of built-up waste materials in my body. The first two months were not used to maintain equilibrium, but simply to eliminate toxic overflow. That is how long it took, using the ion cleanse for 2 to 4 hours every day, to get rid of the extra chemical build-up in my body.
Using the ion cleanse can temporarily imbalance your electrolytes. I recommend eating directly before and after each session, and keeping a glass of juice on hand during the session in case of complications. I also recommend gradually weaning yourself onto a rigorous ion cleanse schedule and weaning yourself back off of it, so as to reduce the shock to your system of immediate mass elimination.
