Thank you Northstar, you have revealed a flaw in your research. Just because the plates may not suck out toxins out of the feet, does not mean that the plates do not work. Instead focus your Science upon what happens INSIDE THE BODY.
Just as putting your feet in the ocean, will result in chemical reactions INSIDE THE BODY, so will there be an effect if you put your feet in an ionic foot bath...INSIDE THE BODY.
Ionic foot baths work....faulty Science does not work!
