Detoxification Foot Bath

The body has certain cleansing abilities, but it is unable to keep up. There are now steps to help cleanse harmful toxins from the inside of your body and it's called the "EB Cellular Cleanse Therapy". This energy healing foot bath is used to cleanse the body and release heavy metals. Water is used as the medium, since our bodies are 80% water, and a brass and stainless steel electrode. The foot bath detoxifies the body of chemicals, radiation and toxins that are trapped in the skin. The following is taken from the handbook (more information):

"Designed and developed to restore the body's balance and energy levels, while facilitating and aiding in it's natural detoxification process. Proven in clinical trials to balance and restore the body's pH and electromagnetic energy. State of the art research and development used to provide a form of energy that the body can readily use - "Bioenergetic/LifeEnergy".

What it does:

The “EB” Cellular Cleanse Therapy has shown in clinical trails using electro dermal scanning to improve and balance the body’s energy channels or meridians. These meridians begin or end on the feet or hands and provide a pathway for energy to flow to or from a particular organ (i.e. liver, kidney, etc.). A person’s current state of health is determined by how well energy flows through these meridians or energy channels. The “EB” Cellular Cleanse Therapy has also shown in clinical trails to change and balance the body’s pH. Balancing the body’s pH is critical in assisting the body in every aspect, from its ability to detox to its ability to digest.

How it works:

The “EB” Cellular Cleanse Therapy uses direct current to create an ionic energy field in the foot bath similar to the energy produced by the human body. This energy is sub-threshold, meaning that the patient generally will not feel the treatments. The “EB “ Cellular Cleanse Therapy creates energy by altering the electron and proton load in water to create an electromagnetic (Bioenergetically”) altered water environment. The patient places their feet in the “Bioenergetic” water to receive the flow of appropriate ions. The energy flow from the “EB” Cellular Cleanse therapy increases the body’s energetics, or simply translated “Life-Energy”.

Most practitioners would recommend starting out with bi-weekly sessions and then tapering down to once a month or so, but it is always a good idea to be under the care of a good holistic doctor.

Laser Therapy

The erchonia laser is a low-level, cold laser that is primarily used to enhance tissue recovery and quicken injury-healing time. Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) is FDA approved for the treatment and management of Carpel Tunnel Syndrome, but it is said to promote healing in several conditions, including chronic pain, wound healing, joint injury and neurological conditions. It works by a mechanism of action where a cascade of intracellular signals initiate, inhibit or accelerate biological processes such as wound healing, inflammation, or pain management. LLLT has the unique property of being able to penetrate up to 2 inches below the skin surface causing an increase in cellular metabolism with no tissue damage. Although it is being used in treatment of brain stem gliomas, LLLT has not been specifically tested in brain cancer. This is from the laser protocol book:

"During the treatment of the tissue with the 635nm laser, an interaction between cells and photons takes place---a photochemical reaction. Photons from the laser affect the tissue at the cellular level. The cold laser enters the tissue, alters cell membrane permeability, and at the cellular level is absorbed in the mitochondria. The mitochondria are the “Powerhouse” of the cells and make ATP, which is needed for the life enhancement process of every cell. The laser accelerates cellular reproduction and growth, stimulates fibroblast development in damaged tissue, increases output of specific enzymes, supplies greater oxygen to the blood cells, reduces the formation of scar tissue, reduces inflammation, stimulates circulation, and stimulates nerve function."

If you are considering laser therapy, be sure to find a good holistic doctor or chiropractor that has access to this equipment in order to provide you with proper explanation and training.
