The Aqua Detox System - Is This A Waste Of Time?
You may have heard of the aqua detox system over recent years and be unaware of the controversy it has caused. Many experts believe the detox involving a foot bath of water (aqua), salt and a low voltage current running through the water is nothing more than a scam.
There was also controversy around the lemon detox diet plan, yet this is now a highly regarded weight loss technique, advised by some doctors.
An aqua foot bath (not the water detox foot bath) is a very good way to relax and cleanse your feet after a long days work, yet some companys adapted this aqua foot bath detox technique through the addition of salt and the low voltage current .
The adapted result is said to extract toxins through the feet of the customer (detoxing), with the water changing color during the process until it reaches a black color. This is misleading and there is no evidence to suggest the changing color of the liquid is down to the extracted toxins (if any).
Many experts have attempted to prove the extracted toxins do not change the color of the liquid, many believe it is down to a reaction between the low voltage current, the salt water and the metal electrical diode.
So, there is no evidence to suggest the aqua detox system has health benefits, yet there is still no evidence to suggest the detox process does not have any health benefits.
The decision to pay for the detox process using the aqua technique is purely down to you as the customer, yet keep in mind that the treatment can cost you around £30 ($60) for a 30 minute treatment.
We do recommend the use of a foot bath/spa treatment as a replacement for the aqua detox program as the foot baths are usually roughly the same price as the one off treatment, yet you can use the aqua foot baths again and again.
The aqua foot baths are not linked to the detox involving salt and water, but they are a great way to release stress, relax and improve the skin condition of your feet.
