Frequently Asked Questions for Ionic Foot Detox Machines

We often get calls and questions from customers about how to use their Ionic Foot Detox Machines or why their Ionic Foot Bath isn’t working. These troubleshooting questions are usually easy fixes that could be avoided by understanding a few things. Today I thought I’d write a blog post to help users troubleshoot some of those issues. If this article doesn’t cover your questions give us a call (888-649-3650) or click here for more information about Ionic Foot Detox Machines.

My Foot Detox Machine Keeps Beeping At Me And Shutting Off? 

When your machine is continually beeping at you it means you have put too much salt in the water. This excessive salt causes the amperage of the machine to exceed the 2.0 mark. If the machine exceeds 2.5 it will shut itself down. Some machines will say “add water.” So what does this all mean? It simply means that the extra salt in the water is conducting too much electricity.  To avoid this, simply turn your machine on without putting any salt in the water. From there, check the amperage reading on the machine. If it is below 1.3 then go ahead and add one small pinch of salt in between your finger and thumb. Make sure to give the salt and water a few seconds to dissolve before looking at the amperage reading again. Continue this process until you get the machine to the target level of 1.5-2.0. If you have already added too much salt, simply add more water if possible, or dump out the water and start again.

The Machine Isn’t Showing Any Numbers At All?

If the machine isn’t showing any amperage readings at all there could be one of a few problems. The first thing you will want to do is add salt to see if you can get the amperage to raise to a readable level. If adding salt does not fix the problem it is likely your array has reached the end of it’s usage period. Use another array to see if the machine will work properly with a new array. If neither of these two options work double check the instruction to make sure you have the machine on correctly, the power/voltage switch is set to the correct side, the fuse is still good, your wrist strap is on and secure (if your machine uses one), and the mode is set to the recommended setting.

Amperage Is Jumping Around

It is typical for the amperage of a machine to fluctuate in between .1 to .2. However, if your foot detox machine starts jumping by .5 or more this is usually a sign that your array is starting to fail. These large jumps in the amperage readings

My Favorite New Product – Redmond Clay!

Here at HEALTHandMED.com we have some amazing, life changing products. Often times as I’m testing the product I get to see first hand how amazing they truly are. The below story is an example of this.

My wife Ingrid was recently visiting her friend Jen who had just spent the entire day outside in the yard gardening, while wearing a swimsuit.  The temperature was not too hot (in the 70′s), so Jen didn’t realize that she was “cooking” her skin.  However, by the end of the day she had an excruciatingly painful sunburn.  Ingrid asked what she had applied to the skin to provide relief (both ladies love and use natural healing products).  ”Did you try aloe vera,” asked Ingrid.  ”Yes,” replied Jen.  ”Coconut oil, vinegar, or homemade lotion,” asked Ingrid?  ”Yes,” Jen replied to all.  None of these treatments had helped and she was still highly uncomfortable.  Then an idea came to Ingrid.  “What about Redmond Clay,” asked Ingrid?  ”No, I haven’t tried that, but I am a little afraid, my skin hurts when it touches anything,” replied Jen.   So they decided to try some Redmond Clay in a small spot.  “Hey, not only does it not hurt, but it actually feels nice and cool.”  So Ingrid proceeded to apply a thick coat of Redmond Clay all over her shoulders and back.  The Redmond Clay soon became warm, almost as if it was drawing the heat out of the skin.  Later on that night, Jen was able to use a shower without pain!

This isn’t a unique story. The amazing properties of this unique clay have a drawing and pulling power. This enables the clay to be used both internally and externally in a variety of ways! You can see those uses here. Some of the most common uses refer to detoxification, skin irritants (rashes, sun burns, stings, bites), and stomach health. Not only this, but the Redmond Clay company has created an entire line of products that expound upon the amazing properties of this unique clay. Please comment or email us to inform us how this clay has helped you!

Low Back Pain Solution!

About a month ago I was lifting at the gym and hurt my lower back. The back pain had been coming on for a few months, however, this particular day of lifting put it over the edge. Growing up in a family of chiropractors I knew some of the benefits of traction tables, which gently pull the upper and lower body causing your back and spine to stretch. Personally I love using these machines, but they are quite expensive to use on a regular bases. So I decided to try out the Teeter Inversion Table.

This device simply grasps your feet and allows you to tilt backwards stretching out your back! Immediately when I tilted back I could feel enormous amount of pressure being taken off of my lower back. Its hard to explain how great this stretching, relieving effect felt. The better part of the effect is this doesn’t just aid back pain relief, but aids in the healing of the back. Often times as our backs get compressed and pinched, the circulation stops flowing to these areas and relief can never be found. By stretching the spine and allowing fluids to enter into these areas, the body will begin healing and regenerating these damaged tissues. This means that prolonged use of a Teeter Inversion or traction tables will allow for long term healing and relief, as well as, short term pain relief.

On top of this, after I used the Teeter Inversion Table I walked over and got on our Professional Vibration Machine to try to loosen up my back where it was pinching. This was the icing on the cake! After the stretching, decompression effects of the Inversion Table, the Vibration Machine shook up my lower back and allowed it to slip back into its proper alignment. Keep in mind that there are a variety of ways to use the vibration machine, which enable you to focus movement on specific areas of the body. I focused on stretching the lower back by leaning on the handle bars while holding my legs straight, getting on my knees while resting my forearms on the plate, and sitting my butt on the plate while leaning forward to touch my toes. These three simple movements allowed the machine  to focus on my lower back and cause amazing pain relief!

This blog post highlights the benefits the devices posed for me, but the awesome thing about these items is that there are many more uses! The Vibration Machines we offer at HEALTHandMED.com create a variety of opportunities for healing and exercise to all users. If you have specific questions about what these machines can do for you, please comment below and we will be sure to respond! Thanks for reading and be healthy!
