Vital Detox/cleanse technologies


Detox / Cleanse


Cleansing basically consist of only ingesting alkaline foods and drinks for a given period of time, along with HYPER HYDRATION, healthy salts and fats.

There are different stages of detox/cleansing. Depending on your situation we will work together to customize the  cleanse just for you.

Becoming Alkaline
This is not as difficult or as technical as it sounds. When we talk about eating alkaline foods or starting an alkaline diet we are referring to consuming those foods and drink which have an alkaline effect on the body. This effect is based upon the ash residue that remains after our foods are consumed. Some foods leave an acid ash, whereas others leave an alkaline ash. Conveniently for us, our bodies have been designed to categorize which foods leave which kind of ash into neat and easy to remember groups.

Health problems caused by acidosis
Research shows that unless the body's pH level is slightly alkaline 7.365, the body cannot heal itself. So no matter what means you choose to take care of your health, it won't be effective until the pH level is balanced. If your body's pH is not balanced, for example, you cannot effectively assimilate vitamins, minerals and food supplements. Your body pH affects everything.

Acidosis will decrease the body's ability to absorb minerals and other nutrients, decrease the energy production in the cells, decrease it's ability to repair damaged cells, decrease it's ability to detoxify heavy metals, make tumor cells thrive, and make it more susceptible to fatigue and illness.

An acidic pH can occur from an acid-forming diet, emotional stress, toxic overload, and/or immune reactions or any process that deprives the cells of oxygen and other nutrients. The body will try to compensate for acidic pH by using alkaline minerals. If the diet does not contain enough minerals to compensate, a build up of acids in the cells will occur.

What Will a Cleanse Do For Me?
By undertaking a cleanse you will give you body not only the chance to repair itself, giving it a break from the stresses of our modern, processed diet for a prolonged period of time, but you will also give it all of the tools it needs to flush your body of yeast / candida, mucous, bacteria, microforms, infections, parasites etc.

Are you ready to cleanse your body and create a revitalized, more energized you?
Detoxing is not all about deprivation and starvation - in fact it is quite the opposite. Detoxing involves a total indulgence of your body's needs, looking after yourself, and giving yourself the gift of a better body and a clearer mind. A body that is free from the stress of over acidity can repair and maintain itself and is more resistant to illness. A body detox will assist the body to eliminate toxins from your body, this will in turn have a direct impact on your immune system and the bodies natural healing process, which will ultimately determine your long term health, vitality and longevity.

The build up of toxins in the body that is often overlooked by most detox programs is the Acid & Alkaline levels of the body, which can easily be managed with implementing an alkaline into your life.  High acidity in the body damages cells and has a dramatic effect on the increase of free radicals, which affect many things within the body including mitochondria (the cells’ energy powerhouse).


People with high acidic levels suffer many symptoms, including:

  • Headaches/Migraines
  • Constant fatigue
  • Weight problems
  • Stomach ulcers
  • Cancer
  • Diabetes
  • Candita
  • Asthma/Allergies
  • Arthritis
  • Immune disorders
  • Plus many more degenerative conditions as well as having a dramatic impact on the aging process


The acidity & alkaline levels in your body can be easily maintained by following an alkaline diet that consists of a higher percentage of alkalizing forming foods and a reduction of acid forming foods. Alkaline diets are also relatively easy to follow and maintain.



If you are looking for the most advanced Far Infrared Technology, then you are Here!
We may not be made out of pretty wood, but what makes a FIR Sauna effective is the generator of the FIR Light that interacts and pulsates your water molecules, creating, as they say, an increase in core temperature, an increase in circulation, and an increase in lymph flow. If you have all these, then it is incredible to see the health benefits a person can derive.

It is also amazing & awesome to see health problems disappear. Read the literature on what Generic (not related to any company) FIR (Far infrared Ray) Light has been shown to do.

The Relax Sauna radiator - as far as we can see - is the most advanced of any FIR Light generator, and generates : The Purest, Cleanest, Most Intense Soothing Light of any FIR Sauna that we are aware of.

Take the Relax Sauna generator pictured below, and compare it to the panels of any wooden sauna, and one can see that it looks like it costs more - it is solidly built.

Compare it to the pieces of cloth and hot plates, or healing coils of any other portable sauna made in China. There really is no comparison. The Relax Sauna is also made in Taiwan, which is known for quality.

The Relax Sauna generators (radiators) cost $895 if you want to purchase them alone, while the pieces of cloth and hot plates of the less expensive portable saunas look like they are worth about $30 - $40 .

To see the educational info about the Relax Sauna Technology, as you scroll down the page you will find many sections of this url that describe the technology that makes the Relax Sauna Unique and Very effective.

There is much information on the internet, extolling the virtues of bathing in Far Infrared Ray Energy. Sherry Rogers wrote a book, Detox or Die, about 15 years ago where she very much extolls the use of FIR energy. At that time, the Relax Sauna did not exist in the United States. So that is why she does not mention the Relax Sauna.

Once you are convinced that FIR is the way to go to get healthier, we then are challenged to tune in, and express ourselves in such a way that you will agree with us that the Relax Sauna is the best buy for your money, and that it is probably the most effective FIR Sauna in the marketplace, regardless of price. 24-page booklet on The Relax FIR Sauna & Sweat Therapy  Available!

"There are 70,000 chemicals being used in commercial production in the U.S. The EPA has classified 65,000 of them potentially, if not definitely hazardous to human health", reports Steven R. Schechter, N.C., author of Fighting Radiation With Foods, Herbs & Vitamins. According to his book, over 6,000 new chemicals are tested in the U.S. each week!

Mr. Zany R. Garbo states, in an older issue of The Townsend Letter, "Three thousand (chemicals) have been identified as intentionally added to food supplies and over 700 in drinking water. During food processing and storage, more than 10,000 other compounds can become an integral part of many commonly used foods...

"Medical researcher, Alan Levine, M.D. believes that, "The vast increase of chemicals in our environment, foods and medicines has greatly altered the body's ability to rid itself of toxins...

"Symptoms known for chemical and metal toxicity are varied. They are listed below. One of the major symptoms of chemical toxicity seems to be a breakdown of the immune system which encourages all kinds of diseases in the body. Also, another major symptom seems to be damage to the nervous system and nervousness. The listed below are some other symptoms relating to chemical and metal poisoning found in various research sources:

Why Should You Consider Herbal Cleansing?

"The whole purpose of colon and internal cleansing is to free the     body to achieve its own inner harmony and balance and to clear out the toxins and accumulated wastes that are dragging you down. Cleansing is the first step on the road to health and sometimes it is the only step you need to take to feel better again."
Martha Volchok, RH (AHG)



No. If you're only having a bowel movement once every three days or more, that is a sign of irregularity. Soft, well formed stool that easily
slides out, without a lot of gas, pain or cramping, at least once a day is a normal healthy bowel movement. Fruits and vegetables take only twelve to twenty-four hours to make it to the exit door, while a steak, can take two to three days before it is eliminated. If you are a heavy meat eater and struggle with constipation, you may have a meal that stays in your colon for five to seven days.

Some say if you are not having a bowel movement after every meal then you are "constipated". Others say if your bowel movements are
like hard nuggets or you have to push and strain a lot, no matter how often you go or don't, then you, too are constipated.

There are three things that need to happen to promote daily bowel movements:

  • Drink enough water
  • Eat high fiber foods
  • Maintain a healthy flow of digestive juices from stomach, gallbladder, pancreas and intestines


The Colon Cleansing Kit™ provides all this and more with its herbal Digestive Stimulator™ formula that not only stimulates digestive juice secretions, but also the muscular contractions of the intestines to keep the bowels moving regularly, without gas or cramping.


What happens when we don't empty our bowels enough?
You can think of it like this. Have you ever kept food out on the kitchen counter or in your garbage can for a few days in warm weather? The first twelve to twenty-four hours usually go unnoticed. Give it a few days and it will begin to rot and compost. You know the smell. Well, just imagine that same food staying in your colon for three to five days at 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit. It would create a stagnant, decaying dump. And you wonder why you may not feel your best! Not to mention the toxic chemicals that are just sitting there, getting reabsorbed back into your bloodstream and circulating throughout the whole body. The Colon Cleansing Kit™ has proven to not only establish daily regular bowel movements, but laboratory tests show that it can eliminate common chemicals, pesticides and heavy metals*.

All These Uncomfortable Sensations May Be Signs of Imbalances in the Digestive System.

The colon only works right when all the parts of the digestive system upstream from it are working right, too. The Colon Cleansing Kit™ not only moves out accumulated wastes, but it also works to encourage the natural functions of the digestive organs: stomach, small and large (colon) intestines, liver, gallbladder and pancreas.
*Cleansing your colon is always a good first step in rebalancing the signs of digestive distress. The Colon Cleansing Kit™ has two formulas:

Toxin Absorber™ which pulls the accumulated wastes off the intestinal walls, and Digestive Stimulator™, which tones, cleanses and purifies the entire digestive system and ensures daily bowel movements.


*How to kick start a weight loss program!


No matter what you have heard, weight loss always, always, comes down to eating less calories. The problem then becomes how long can you continue to eat less? It is not a question of how much will power you have, but what kind of healthy habits can you develop that you enjoy. To keep weight off you will have to learn to eat a healthy diet and make lifestyle changes.

Once you are used to eating "junk food," "fast food," and sweets, your taste buds lose their ability to appreciate the flavor of healthy, low-calorie fruits and vegetables. What's healthy and low-calorie often tastes bad compared to the addictive flavors of "junk foods". But you can easily lose your food addictions with the simple, five-day, liquid fast of the Colon Cleansing Kit™. You will not feel hunger with this liquid fast as the high fiber drink quickly fills up the empty space in your stomach leaving you with a satisfied, full feeling.

Best of all - when you start eating solid foods again, your old cravings will be gone and you will once again appreciate the real flavor of foods. This is your moment to lay the foundation for a new habit of healthy eating. Kick-starting a weight loss program was never easier.

The added bonus? You will lose weight during the Colon Cleansing Kit™ as you not only burn off fat stores, but you also release pounds of accumulated wastes from your digestive tract that don't return when you start eating again.


 I have added added components that complement the cleanse for more energy and vitality. We are always looking to improve the cleansing experience.

  • Himalayan salt capsules
  • Cayenne tincture
  • Greenzymes, Alkalizing green barley





The liver is a large organ weighing three pounds in the average adult and measuring about 9.5 inches across. It performs over 500 separate metabolic functions for the body. These functions can be grouped into two main actions: one, processing digested food received from the blood and fats from the lymphatics, and two, filtering wastes and toxins also from the blood.

The liver controls the glucose (sugar) level in the blood. It can remove or add glucose at will. This keeps the level of glucose at a constant within the blood at all times.

The liver collects newly absorbed nutrients and depending on the body’s needs can either release them into the blood or store them as fat or glycogen. The liver also stores copper, iron, and the vitamins A, B12, D, E, and K.

The liver has cells called Kupffer’s cells that ingest and break down old white and red blood cells. The Kupffer’s cells also break down some bacteria as well as toxins.

There are areas in the liver that specialize in the chemical alteration of toxic molecules into water-soluble forms. These forms are less harmful and can easily be eliminated through urine via the kidneys.

The liver can also eliminate harmful substances by excreting them into the bile. The gallbladder is a pear shaped pouch for bile received from the liver, which, when secreted into the small intestines, helps to digest and break down fat and cholesterol.
Bile salts contain cholesterol in a liquid form. However, if there is an excess of cholesterol and other toxins they can crystallize in the gallbladder. When this happens gallstones begin to form.
One can easily see the importance of this powerful organ of elimination. If the liver is toxic the entire body will certainly suffer. In turn when the liver has been cleansed, almost all the body's processes will be greatly strengthened.


Physical Signs Traditionally Associated With a Toxic  Liver & Gallbladder. Primary Signs:

  • Easy Fatique
  • Headaches, including migraines
  • Insomnia
  • Food sensitivities
  • Secondary Signs
  • Period problems & severe PMS
  • Gallstones
  • Alcohol & substance abuse
  • Stiff, tense, aching muscles and nerves
  • Weak tendons
  • Eye problems: including spots, floaters, dry eyes, cataracts, and sore eyes
  • Nails: dry & over cracked
  • Tics & tremors
  • Lack of energy
  • Allergic reactions
  • Hypoglycemia
  • Constipation
  • Disturbed equilibrium

In Depth
As we know, the liver is the body’s primary means of processing toxins. When it becomes overwhelmed the body is affected in many ways. Because of the increased difficulty dealing with toxins in the body, one may become much more sensitive to environmental toxins, increasing allergic responses, feelings of lethargy, and lack of energy. The body is overwhelmed at its primary processing plant. When this happens, toxins begin to back up and effect other areas of the body.

Also, the liver controls the body’s sugar level. In a toxic state the liver may struggle to maintain this constant level, leading to fluctuating sugar levels that can greatly affect one’s energy level. 


Emotional Signs Traditionally Associated With a Toxic Liver & Gallbladder  - Primary Signs

  • Anger
  • Frustration
  • Lack of concentration
  • Mental confusion

Secondary Signs

  • Lack of ability to express anger
  • Irritability
  • Unreasonable temper tantrums
  • Mood swings
  • Depression
  • Nightmares
  • Violent behavior


In Depth
A great deal of energy is used to perform all of the liver’s many functions. However, if excess toxins are present, the liver is unable to use its own energy and this creates a situation similar to a huge traffic jam at rush hour. Nothing can go anywhere and this manifests itself as a great source of frustration and anger. With energy it cannot use, the liver and one’s emotions have a very short fuse.

On the other hand, a toxic system can also limit the liver’s energy. If one’s liver does not have enough energy to perform all its tasks, one may become ungrounded. This manifests as mental confusion and lack of concentration related to the liver’s inability to carry out all of its necessary tasks.




Once the Colon Is Cleansed, What about the Rest of Your Body?
Help with Whole Body Detoxification!
The Body Doesn't Have Just One Way That It Gets Rid of Toxic Wastes and Neither Should Your Cleanse!

Did you know that your body has four major ways of eliminating toxic wastes through the colon, lungs, kidneys/bladder and skin? Even when the colon is cleansed, it only takes care of about 25% of the waste management of the body? What about the other 75%? Don't they need cleansing, too? You got that right! Once the bowels have been cleansed and are moving daily, it gives the other 75% a chance to move out their long, stored-up toxins.


A Backed-Up Colon Burdens the Other Cleansing Organs

The colon is in charge of solid-waste management, the lungs manage gaseous waste and the kidneys/bladder and skin manage the liquid waste of your body. When your colon gets backed-up, it throws added toxins and metabolic wastes back into circulation and that puts a burden on all other waste management systems.The whole purpose of internal cleansing is to free the body to achieve its own inner harmony and balance, and to clear out accumulated toxins and wastes that may be dragging you down. Internal cleansing is the first step on the road to health and sometimes it is the only step you need to take to feel better again.*The Internal Cleansing Kit™ Detoxifies the Whole BodyIf you really hope to cleanse and detoxify your whole body, you will need more than one formula for more than one part of your body. You are going to need the Internal Cleansing Kit™.
The best preparation for internal cleansing is to do the Colon Cleansing Kit™ first, in order to be sure that the colon is not backed-up and is cleansed of any old, accumulated wastes that might interfere with cleansing the rest of the body. (Of course, it is perfectly all right to cleanse the colon, all by itself, anytime with only the Colon Cleansing Kit™).


Candida Yeast Infections Are Commonly Accompanied By Intestinal Parasite And Bacterial Infections

The topic of parasites is included in this web site because it is commonly recognized (at least in the alternative medical community) that intestinal "dysbiosis" frequently is accompanied by, or caused by, infestation with intestinal parasites. "Dysbiosis" refers to a disorder of the natural biological state of the intestines, such as a Candida or other fungus or yeast overgrowth, or the presence of pathogenic bacteria or parasites.

Candida overgrowth is a major topic of this web site. The experience as recounted by very many healthcare professionals in Internet resources, as well as the personal experiences of Candida sufferers, is that Candida overgrowths are commonly accompanied by both pathogenic bacteria and parasites. The yeast forms a coating on the mucosal lining of the intestines, and that lining provides protective cover for the growth of these other undesirable agents.

Separately from Candida, there are numerous credible sources suggesting that even in developed countries a very large percentage of the population harbors intestinal parasites. The logic of their arguments is hard to ignore.





Kids are basically unsanitary. Kids eat dirt, play in the dirt with other kids; wade or swim with other kids who may be unclean and may even have dirty diapers. Diaper changing at home and at day care centers can pass germs and parasites from one child to another, and to surfaces, and to adults. And it's not just today's children, we all grew up like this, having lots of potential for contracting parasites that "found a home" and stayed with us.

We eat salads and raw ground-growing fruits and vegetables (carrots, strawberries, cantaloupes, and so on) that are anything but sterile. Food handlers may have "less than perfect" hygiene practices and may themselves be infected with parasites. Foods that might be contaminated, such as beef, pork and poultry, might not be properly prepared. We play kissy-face with our pets. Lots of people, including those in the armed forces, travel to undeveloped countries where sanitation is poor. There are significant numbers of immigrants from these undeveloped countries to Western countries, and a huge percentage of those people carry parasites and other intestinal infections.

We repeatedly and continually come in contact with parasitic sources for our entire lives.




In a study of outpatients at the Gastroenterology Clinic in Elmhurst, N.Y., a 74% incidence of parasites was found. A total of 20% of this population harbored pathogens. One survey of public health laboratories reported that 15.6% of specimens examined contained a parasite. At Great Smokies Diagnostic Laboratory, almost 30% of specimens examined are positive for a parasite.





Most of them are microscopic in size -- single celled amoebas and other protozoa. Some of the Helminths (worms and flukes) are also microscopic in size, but most are larger -- some very large.

The four classes of parasites are:

  • protozoa (amoebas, Giardia, Plasmodium [malaria]);
  • nematodes (roundworms, pinworms, and hookworms);
  • cestodes (tapeworms);
  • trematodes (flukes).

Some of these are really ugly. If you need an ugly fix, take a gander at these roundworms. Yuuck!




Because of our constant exposure to parasites, the more progressive healthcare professionals believe it's an odds-on chance that you carry a parasitic infection. But, how would you know? Some symptoms would be obvious clues, especially diarrhea and other intestinal difficulties. But, many believe that it causes much less obvious symptoms, including conditions like Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and fibromyalgia.

According to Skye Weintraub, a Naturopathic physician and author of The Parasite Menace, a parasitic infection could be manifested by any number of signs. These include constipation, diarrhea, gas and bloating, irritable bowel syndrome, joint and muscle aches and pains, anemia, allergies, skin conditions, nervousness, sleep disturbances, teeth grinding, and chronic fatigue.

Many health practitioners believe not only that parasites may be responsible for a number of other health problems. Weintraub says, "Many parasites go undetected because they are not producing serious symptoms. It is easy to attribute feeling ill to other causes because parasitic infections look like lots of other conditions. I have seen other health problems disappear once the body has become parasite-free."The information provided here is just the beginning of understanding parasitic infections. Many parasites are passed through the food chain to the GI tract where they reproduce. The larvae can travel through the blood stream and settle into any organ or part of the body. Most well known is trichinosis caused by a roundworm (nematode) that is ingested from eating infected meat, especially pork. The larvae settle into the muscles where they form a cyst. Encysted larvae can remain viable for many years, and in most cases, for the life of the animal (and you). An infected swine will generally not show any clinical signs of illness unless large numbers of the parasite are present.Another example is the liver fluke, a trematode that lives in the bile ducts in the liver and infects an estimated 30 million people. It is primarily contracted from eating raw or inadequately cooked fish. The worms can live at least as long as 10 years, and possibly as long as 20 years, but they reproduce so an infection is not self-limiting and can be fatal.

The following snip from an Australian web site on parasites provides revealing information on occult protozoan infections:"Blastocystis hominis (B. hominis) & Dientamoeba fragilis (D. fragilis) are protozoan parasites capable of causing constipation and/or diarrhoea, mushy stools, stomach pain, bloating, chronic fatigue, & weight loss. They have been implicated in some cases of colitis, allergic colitis & bowel inflammation.
"Surveys employing specific stool collection and testing techniques find the rate of infection is up to 50% in the general population of many western countries. Despite these findings, the type of testing necessary to detect these parasites is not routinely used in clinical practice.
"Many people suffer digestive symptoms for years before diagnosis. The symptoms are often wrongly attributed to Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)."



The degree of rigor of the treatment program might depend on the degree of certainty of an infestation, so a definitive lab test is a good place to start. If you also have Candida symptoms, this is the time to also have a screening test done to determine if Candida is a factor.

See our associated web page FUNGAL, YEAST, AND PARASITE LAB TESTS for tests and organizations that specialize in testing for parasites. The mainstream medical and hospital labs have a poor reputation in discovering parasitic infestations, so your medical practitioner should use a lab that specializes in digestive disorders. Several such labs are listed on the lab tests page. Any licensed medical practitioner in your state can order these tests -- licensed medical practitioners include MD's, DO's, Naturopaths, Chiropractors, nutritionists, and a spectrum of other specialties -- see our HOW TO FIND A DOCTOR page for more information.




In many cases, the treatment will be straightforward. If you do not have a complication with Candidiasis, a parasitic infection can be treated in a variety of ways that may include intestinal cleansing, herbal remedies, and prescription drugs. If you have a Candida overgrowth, then you need to treat both the Candida and parasite infections concurrently.

Some people believe that their chances of having or contracting a parasitic infection are high, and therefore undertake a routine intestinal cleansing program just to eliminate parasites should there be any. These are perhaps many of the same people who believe that a periodic intestinal cleanse is a basic part of good health -- sort of a "spring cleaning" approach.

Conventional (Allopathic) Medicine: If you suspect that you have a parasitic infection then you might select a doctor or healthcare provider who can order lab tests from one of the specialty labs. (Be aware, though, that your suspicions might be wrong, and the source of your problems might be something quite different, and potentially serious.) If parasites are identified, and if your doctor is an MD or DO (the only ones who can order prescription drugs), then they will no doubt write a prescription for a standard medication likely to be effective against the particular parasite. And that might be the end of it.

You should know, however, that not all of the standard anti-parasitic drugs are equally effective against all parasites, and many physicians do not have the drug-parasite matrix memorized (probably almost none of them do, and that's also about how many will take the trouble to look it up). So, if the treatment isn't effective, it might mean some research is required on your part. Ask the doctor's office staff for a photocopy of the lab test results for your file -- they almost always will comply without hesitation.Once you have the name of the infecting organism you can do a targeted search on a service like Google. Google is an excellent method of exploring very narrow research topics. Search on the name of the parasite along with one or more terms such as drug, drugs, medication, sensitivity, and prescription to narrow the search results. When you find a web page from a reliable medical resource that describes the sensitivity of the organism to available drugs you are ready to make another appointment -- with that doctor, or another one. Now, however, you've got another problem -- the ego thing. Doctors aren't fond of patients thinking that they know more than the doctor about treating illnesses, so, you need to be diplomatic.

Alternative Medicine: The homeopathic, natural healing approach to treatment excludes the use of prescription drugs, and instead depends on herbal remedies, colonics, fiber and mineral absorptive agents, intestinal cleansing, and so on. There is an enormous amount of medical information available on the Internet from alternative medicine sources and believers. We counted, and there are a bazillion and nine web pages about parasitic treatments. Basically, they distill down to two things: intestinal cleansing to clear out debris that might be harboring or protecting the parasites, and herbal remedies to kill the parasites.

Intestinal Cleansing: There are a wide variety of intestinal cleansing programs and products. The Lemonade Diet is one such program that seems to be favored by the online Candida sufferers community;

Herbal Remedies: There are dozens of herbal products on the market for treating parasites. They all are composites of a number of individual herbs having anti-parasitic qualities. Many of these herbs have been used for hundreds and even thousands of years to rid humans and their domesticated animals of intestinal parasites. Please see the ANTI-PARASITIC SECTION IN OUR PRODUCT GUIDE for information on the products.

PiMag Water Systems - Benefits



Pi is the Greek word for life; it also means returning to the source. For over 30 years, Japanese scientists have been studying a form of water they call Pi, meaning living water. They have been researching it because of the beneficial effects they perceived it has on plants and other growing things. Magnetic fields break up clusters, which lowers the surface tension of water molecules allowing for easier absorption, restoring natural energy and balance. This is a key feature.In accordance with the properties described of magnetized water, many experiments and therapeutic results have reported Improvement in:

  • Diabetes
  • Improved liver function
  • Lowered blood pressure and improvement in cardiac output
  • Relief of headaches and stiff joints
  • Reduced cholesterol due to decreased build up and hardening of arteries
  • Improved digestive functions, decreased gastric acid
  • Improved waste and toxin elimination
  • Strengthened immune system (increase Pi-water intake in early stages of cold, flu or virus)
  • Decreased constipation and cleaner intestinal tract
  • Kidney and bladder stone reduction & decreased bladder rigidity.
  • Reduced severity of menstrual problems
  • Improved overall health and wellbeing
  • Promotes a more alkaline pH in the body (alkaline water is not conducive for cancer cells)
  • Promotes quick healing of cuts, wounds and burns

Scientific Benefits of Negative Ions

Negative ions improve asthma and other respiratory conditions."There is nothing subjective about a bawling baby"


Brazilian hospitals now commonly use negative ion generators to treat breathing problems, after a test involving 36 children with asthmatic allergies. In each case, the problem was consistent or crippling. During the treatment, only one of them suffered an asthma attack. Afterward, no attacks were suffered by any of the children that sustained regular negative ion therapy (Soyka, 1991).   


In 1966, a hospital in Jerusalem conducted a study involving 38 babies, between the ages of two and twelve months, with about the same degree of respiratory problems. The babies were separated into two groups of nineteen. One group was treated with nothing but a negative ion electronic air cleaner, while the second group was administered the standard treatment, which included drugs and antibiotics with side effects. The babies in the group treated with the negative ion air purifier were cured of asthma and bronchitis much more quickly than those in the control group. The babies in the negative ion group were also found to be less prone to rebound attacks. Less scientifically, doctors found that the babies treated by negative ion-enriched air didn't cry as often or as loudly. But as Fred Soyka, the author of The Ion Effect puts it, "there is nothing subjective about a bawling baby" (Soyka, 1991).


"Monotonous Regularity"

In 1975, an East German doctor, who had by then treated more than 11,000 individuals with various respiratory conditions with a negative ion electronic air cleaner, said that his patients reported with "monotonous regularity" that the therapy had worked (Soyka, 1991).


You gotta like these odds

In the early 1960s, Dr. A. P. Wehner used negative ion generators to treat over 1,000 patients in the U. S. suffering from various respiratory ills, such as bronchial asthma, pulmonary emphysema, laryngitis, bronchitis, dry hacking cough, upper respiratory tract infection, and allergies. He reported that the symptoms completely disappeared in 30.3% of the cases, improved significantly in 42.3% of the cases, showed some improvement in 20% of the cases, and showed no signs of improvement in 7.4% of the cases (Wehner, 1962).


It's all in the numbers

In Britain, two Oxford University statisticians conducted a study among victims of asthma, bronchitis, and hay fever. The sample was randomly selected from a list of people who had purchased a negative ion air purifier. Through interviews, they found that 18 of 24 asthmatics, 13 of 17 bronchitis sufferers, 11 of 12 hay fever victims, and 6 of 10 suffering from nasal catarrh, reported that the product had noticeably improved their condition. A few even reported that it cured their condition (Soyka, 1991).


When a negative is better than a positive

Postive ions, which occur in high levels in many indoor environments, inhibit the body's ability to prevent pollutants and contaminates from entering the vulnerable areas of the respiratory tract. However, an overdose of negative ions has proven to provide counteraction to this effect (Kreuger, 1974; Soyka, 1991; Tchijewski, 1960).


Reduce and/or destroy bacteria, viruses and other microbes

U.S. Dept. of Agriculture

A recent study by the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture found that ionizing a room led to 52% less dust in the air, and 95% less bacteria in the air (since many of the pollutants found in the air reside on floating dust particles).


Agriculture Research Service (of USDA)
The Agriculture Research Service of the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture tested the effectiveness of ionizers for removing dust in a poultry hatchery. The dust level is very high in such an environment. In this study, the use of an ionizer resulted in dust removal efficiencies that averaged between 81.1 and 92.2%. The airborne transmission of salmonella (to the eggs) was also significantly reduced as a result.

Journal of Hygiene

Scientists showed that ionization reduced bacterial levels in burns and plastic surgery units by over 96% after a two week period, which results in much better and more rapid healing of patients.


Journal of Applied Microbiology

The use of negative ions was even found by scientists to reduce the presence of airborne viruses by about 40%. A study featured in the 1987 issue also showed the negative ions are free from any adverse side effects.


Negative ions are needed in order to take in oxygen.


"Please, we're dying here!"

Russian scientist, Dr. A. L. Tchijewsky, tried raising mice, rats, guinea pigs, and rabbits in totally de-ionized air. Almost all of them died within two weeks due to an inability to utilize oxygen properly (Tchijewski, 1960). Tchijewsky's colleague, Dr. D. A. Lapitsky, tried raising small animals in air completely devoid of oxygen. He added only negative ions to the air as they were about to die from asphyxiation. At which point, their respiration frequency drastically increased, as they began to sit up and run around the chamber (Tchijewski, 1960).


Don't travel to space without `em

Former NASA scientist James B. Beal, who came across the negative ion problem while studying the type of environment needed in space capsules, wrote: "The human race was developed in ionized air. Nature used the ions in developing our biological processes." In other words, people have been designed to function properly in an environment that contains certain level of ionization (Soyka, 1991).


The more the better

Fred Soyka, author of "The Ion Effect" reports that based on the 5,000 plus scientific documents that have been published regarding negative ion studies, all support the conclusion that an overload of negative ions seems to be beneficial (Soyka, 1991).


Negative ions counteract the effects of smoking.


High levels of negative ions neutralize the effect that tobacco smoke has on the cilia. Cilia are the microscopic hairs located in the trachea that move rapidly back and forth to prevent pollutants and toxins from traveling into the vulnerable areas of the respiratory tract. The faster the cilia move, the more effective they are. However, tobacco smoke slows down the ciliary beat, diminishing the body's ability to keep cancer-causing pollutants from entering the depths of the respiratory tract. Tests have shown though, that adding high levels of negative ions to the air accelerates the ciliary beat to normal levels (Soyka, 1991).


Negative ions help prevent respiratory-related illnesses.


"I hope I'm in group one."

In a study conducted in a Swiss textile mill, negative ionizers were placed in two, 60' by 60' rooms, each containing 22 employees. In one room, the negative ion electronic air cleaner was turned on during the course of the study. In the other room, the negative ion air purifier was permanently turned off, although the employees in this room were led to believe they were working in a room enriched by negative ions. During this six-month study, a total of 22 sick days were lost by employees working in the room in which the negative ionizer was operating. In the room where the machine was not operating, a total of 64 days were lost to sickness. During a month-long flu epidemic, the first group lost a total of 3 days to sickness, while the second group lost a total of 40 days to sickness (Stark, 1971). In a test involving a Swiss bank office, one group of 309 worked in a negative ion-treated environment. A second group of 362 worked in an untreated environment. Over the next several months, for every day lost to respiratory illness (cold, flu, laryngitis, etc.) in group one, 16 days were lost to respiratory illness in group two (Soyka, 1991).


"We liked them so much . . .."

In a Surrey University study at the Norwich Union Insurance Group headquarters, eight negative ion generators were placed in the computer and data preparation section. Before the test, the research team spent a month compiling incident rates for complaints of sickness and headaches. During the test in which the negative ion air purification systems were in operation, incidents of sickness and headaches were reduced by 78%. After testing was completed, the Norwich Union opted to keep the negative ion electronic air cleaners (Soyka, 1991).Negative ions help prevent migraine headaches. Migraine headaches originate when an overload of serotonin causes the diameter of blood vessels leading to the brain to dilate, and get wider in the brain. Consequently, blood flow increases, and pain receptors in the vessels are stretched, which leads to the excruciating pain associated with a migraine headache (Borne, 1998; others). In numerous tests and studies though, negative ion treatment has proven to prevent the overproduction of serotonin, and therefore the subsequent migraine headaches (Kreuger, 1957; Soyka, 1991; Sulman, 1974).


Negative ions are a natural anti-depressant.. . . and without the side effects!

In a study conducted by Columbia University, 25 people with SAD (Seasonal Affective Depression) sat in front of a negative ion air purifier for a half hour every morning for a month. Half the subjects were given a low level of negative ions, and the other half a high level. The higher level of negative ion treatment proved to be as effective against SAD as antidepressants, such as Prozac and Zolof, and without the side effects of these drugs (Finley, 1996).


Negative ions for a positive attitude

Positive ions, which are found in abundance in most indoor environments, cause an overproduction of serotonin. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter that helps the body deal with mental, emotional, and physiological stress. An overproduction initially causes hyperactivity, which rapidly leads to anxiety, and in some cases depression. Negative ion treatment has proven to be successful in reducing the overproduction of serotonin, and therefore successful in alleviating depression in some cases (Kreuger, 1957).Negative Ions Help Combat Fatigue. In 1957, a study published in the Journal of General Physiology concluded that negative ions reduce the overproduction of serotonin, a neurohormone that leads to exhaustion, among other things, when overproduced (Kreuger, 1957).


Negative Ions Enhance Mental Performance and Concentration.The Alpha wave rhythms say it all

In 1969, Dr. Sulman, head of the department of Applied Pharmacology at Hebrew University in Jerusalem at the time, brought in groups of people to spend some time in a room low in negative ions, and also in a room that contained an "overdose" of negative ions. While in each room, subjects were given word, figure, and symbol tests. They scored "significantly higher" on these tests when they were in the negative ion-enriched room. Plus, while in the negative ion room, they showed (via the electroencephalogram) a slower, stronger pulse rate of Alpha waves from the brain. Alpha wave rhythms are a measure of the brain's activity and health. A slow, strong Alpha wave pulse rate indicates healthiness, calmness, and heightened alertness. When the subjects were in the negative ion-deficient room, they showed signs of irritability and fatigue in addition to lower test performance (Sulman, 1974).


The more difficult the better

In the study conducted by Surrey University at the Norwich Union Insurance Group headquarters, the employees in the computer and data preparation section that were exposed to high levels of negative ions showed a 28% increase in overall task performance. The more difficult the task, the more dramatic the improvement tended to be (Soyka, 1991).


Negative ions enhance physical performance.The Ion Olympics

After World War II, the Russians extensively studied the relationship between negative ions and physical performance. A team of doctors, psychologists, and physicists observed and measured the performance of Olympic athletes in various conditions of negative ions levels. In each test of physical performance, the group that trained in facilities, and stayed in quarters high in negative ion concentration showed tremendous improvements in performance in comparison to the control group (Minkh, 1961).Negative Ions help us to sleep better.In 1969, French researcher found that the overproduction of the neurohormone serotonin caused sleeplessness and nightmares. In using a negative ion electronic air cleaner to treat a group of people experiencing sleeping problems as a result of serotonin overproduction, he found that most of them were able to sleep better (Soyka, 1991).

Negative ions aid in the treatment of burn patients

In 1959, Dr. Kornbleuh treated a group of 138 burn victims at Northeastern General Hospital with negative ionized air. Within this group, 57.3% suffered significantly less pain and discomfort, while healing more quickly and thoroughly. Only 22.5% of the control group (the group of burn victims treated through conventional methods rather than negative ionization) experienced similar improvements in the same time frame. Statistically, the odds are 1,000 to 1 that these results were coincidental. This study, along with other follow up tests, were evidence enough for the hospital, which subsequently equipped its postoperative wards with negative ion generators. The effectiveness of negative ion treatment in these tests are likely a result of the extraordinary ability of negative ions to remove pollutants from the air, resulting in reduced infection and irritation of burn wounds (Kornbleuh, 1959).
