Contraindications for the IonCleanse
Approximately 95% of people in this culture experience a state of acidity; that is, their bodies
contain an excess of hydrogen ions, and their blood pH is lower than 7.45. These people will
greatly benefit from exposure to high concentrations of negatively charged ions, however, we
have found through muscle testing that most people prefer a mixture of positive and negative
ions in each lonCleanse session.
Anyone who falls into one or more of the categories listed below should not use the lonCleanse
system: A person that has a pacemaker or any other battery operated or electrical implant
Individuals who do not respond to a muscle test or who test weak to both polarities in the water
with the unit turned on:
- Any person who is on heartbeat regulating medication
- Any person who has had an organ transplant
- Any person who is taking a medication, the absence of which would mentally or
physically incapacitate them, e.g. psychotic episodes, seizures, etc.
In addition, the following recommendations should be strongly considered:
- Many medications require that a blood level be maintained in order to be effective, such
as blood pressure medication. You may be able to schedule an lonCleanse session just
before the administering of medication so that the patient or client can maintain proper
- Make sure that patients with low blood sugar have eaten before an lonCleanse session.
The lonCleanse tends to lower blood sugar in diabetics and may do so with those who
- It is best not to bathe pregnant and lactating women because the lonCleanse will pull
toxins out of tissues and fat. These toxins could impair fetal development and will
become part of the milk that is fed to a newborn infant.
Note: Pregnant and lactating women have used the lonCleanse without harm; however, we
recommend staying on the safe side and not bathing these patients or clients.
As a general rule, you can use the lonCleanse with patients on dialysis, taking insulin, or
experiencing congestive heart failure. Gentle detoxification will help the body eliminate toxins
which the kidney and heart cannot eliminate on their own, but will not interfere with medications
or deplete insulin levels.
You can probably work with people who have had a metal joint implant, but some have found
the exposure to an electromagnetic field to be too uncomfortable. If the patient feels
uncomfortable, stop the treatment immediately.
