Celebrating 16yrs producing,
Optimum Energetics Systems™ detox footbath units, one of the longest manufacturers, USA made (former
models Focus Standard Universal ES1500, Focus Professional ES8000, Focus Dual
ES9000) w a 3 yr warranty. The Optimum Detox footbath™ is a bi-product of
over 16 yrs of research, development
The Family of OPTIMUM Detox footbath™ units are the latest in ionic detox foot bath technology & the most powerful/safest machines. The OPTIMUM ionic footbath™ creates an ionization osmosis environment running negative oxygen ions through your body pulling & attracting the positively charged impurities, heavy metals, etc out through the feet in to the saline charged solution in the bath. The energized ionized water runs through your body bringing the body's chi & meridians back in to balance where one might feel energized & relaxed. Impurities are pulled from the body, improving the body's natural resilience. There is a noticeable change in the water color during the session where you are actually seeing cellular waste & oxidation present in the water. The energy fields are stronger, strengthening the body's immune system. You will feel revitalized, lighter feeling, balanced, clarity, healthy & ready to enjoy life! This system is easy enough for a home user to use as well as a practitioner... no formal training is necessary.
Made in USA
OPTIMUM detox footbaths are the most powerful units on the market. The standard OPTIMUM model runs as high as 3.00 AMPS and the professional model as high as 5.5 AMPS. Most competitors' units only operate up to 2.5 AMPS.
OPTIMUM detox footbaths generate a higher voltage of negative ions . Because our units operate at higher AMPS, they are able to generate more negative ions-up to 35 times higher than competitive units. Since competitors' water modules are generating less electrical activity, they can last longer than our Optimizer water module however they will not produce as high of an ORP (# of ions).
OPTIMUM detox footbaths has adjustable 'Current Control' knob to compensate for people's different needs receiving the treatment. With the Optimum units you have full control over the amperage simply by adjusting the current knob (going as low as 0.00 to 5.50 amps). Other competitor units do not have the ability to make adjustments to the incoming current. Their units' amperage can only be increased by adding 'salt'. To reduce the amperage in the competitor's units you cannot take the salt out of the water so you have to either dump the water or dilute it defeating the purpose of creating a denser saline solution. Even if these other units have preprogrammed buttons you are still adding salt to increase the amperage until the unit notifies you when the amperage has been reached and then you stop adding salt. It is a cheap way to control amperage and the client is receiving a straight 24 volt current which is not healthy. We use regulators to control the power supply.
OPTIMUM detox footbaths feature a comprehensive protective mechanism. Our internal and external fuses and double insulated construction guard against the water module blowing a fuse. Many competitive brands use other technology that is not as protective of the person getting the footbath treatment.
OPTIMUM detox footbaths use a water module with advanced features. The Optimizer water module offers advanced 'large' surface design to enhance the ionic osmosis process; bolted connections for stronger conductivity; use of high grade stainless steal construction; and easy replacement of individual components saving money.
OPTIMUM detox footbaths are technologically advanced in components, internal stages of regulation, output, and use of double insulation. Many other brands still use outdated Transformer Rectifier (TR) power supply technology from the 1960s, which can malfunction and cause ripples and spikes or static interference.
OPTIMUM detox footbaths offer an optional copper tub that enhances conductivity. Because less current is needed to generate the desired amperage power, the copper tub helps extend the life of the Optimizer water module. Other brands only use plastic tubs. Another benefit is a higher production of ions since the copper enhances the movement of electrons where in a plastic tub the electrons slow down as they move away from the array. More electrons moving will create more negative ions.
OPTIMUM detox footbaths offers Practitioner Certification Training to either start a new business or incorporate in your existing.
OPTIMUM detox footbaths are made in USA and serviced in USA. We are one of the original ion foot spa manufacturers and have a long standing history. Today most ion foot spas are made in China and are very cheaply made and in fact not very safe.

We are dedicated to research and sharing of health knowledge with our customers.
Our unique COPPER TUB adds conductivity to the footbath; this means less current which helps extend the life of the Optimizer water array. Other brands only use plastic tubs. Another benefit is a higher production of ions since the copper enhances the movement of electrons where in a plastic tub the electrons slow down when moving away from the array. More electrons moving will create more negative ions.

"Did the certification manual while away this weekend. What an eye opener as far as benefits and features. Who did the manual? Great job, very clear. Makes me happy to know I have the "real deal". ...Every one that is going to sell or provide footbath services must have this book...Thanks, Diana" (Northport, NY)
"Thank you. I did receive the certificate. I appreciate the follow up and really enjoyed the certification process. I was amazed how well written and easy to understand the technical information was and how professional the comparisons were to other footbaths. I saw a thread of Taoism in the way the information was written. If you don't already read it, you would probably enjoy it... Thanks again, Linda" (Stevensville, MD)

REASON: DC Current only can go from Negative to Positive polarity NEVER can it go from Positive to Negative as the companies that use Dual Polarity claim. Moving current from a positive to negative goes against the law of physics for DC current.
REASON: Negative Ions are the good ions. Positive Ions are the depleting ions, free radicals (refer below about Neg vs Pos ions). Why would you ever want positive ions?
REASON: The only way the PH level can be altered is if the ionized water is extracted either at the Anode or Cathode rings where the H2O has split is extracted in to H+ (acidic water) or OH- (alkaline water).
DC CURRENT: ALL Footbath electrolysis units on the market are using DC current. They either run from an AC input or a battery input (a battery is DC). This is necessary to create the electrolysis process. Direct current or DC electricity is the continuous movement of electrons from negative to positive through a conducting material such as a metal wire or in the case of the footbath it is the water. A DC circuit is necessary to allow the current or steam of electrons to flow. The current ALWAYS flows from the negative (Cathode ring) to the positive (Anode ring) through the water. When the electrons move from the Cathode ring to the Anode ring it causes the Cathode ring to deplete and then binds with molecules in the water and then moves to the Anode ring creating a plating on the Anode ring (refer to our research page showing the scrapings of the Anode ring click here). When a machine switches polarity ALL THEY ARE DOING is changing which plates receive the positive and the negative. The current STILL flows from Negative to Positive. Remember the Cathode ring depletes the metal & the Anode ring attracts where a build up occurs, so when the Anode ring switches to receiving the negative, making it now the Cathode ring, it then releases all the build-up back in to the water. Not only are you releasing the toxins back in to the water but it gains NO BENEFIT. (click here for outside source)
False misleading statement by other companies state (i.e. AMD IONCLEANSE) when the unit is supposedly in 'positive' mode: "When the unit is in positive mode, the current flows to the positive pole in the array, which results in more negative ions being produced in the water. When it is set on negative mode, the current flows to the negative pole in the array, which results in more positive ions being produced in the water. Therefore, negative polarity generates a positive ion flow. This process is known as the electrolysis of water." stated by AMD Ioncleanse.
** THIS IS FALSE: A DC current cannot move from positive to negative pole as stated in the negative mode. (explained above)
A VIDEO from AMD IONCLEANSE that demonstrates 'INCORRECT' info on DC Current
WATER ELECTROLYSIS is the process by which water is broken down into hydrogen and oxygen in the presence of a direct electric current and an electrolyte (NACL salt). Electrolysis of water is what's called a redox reaction. This means that electrons are being moved from one molecule to another. To electrolyze water, you need 2 electrodes, the cathode (negative) and the anode (positive). This would be the water module of the footbath unit. You also need to dissolve ions in the water to improve its conductivity; sodium chloride (salt) is often used as in the case of the footbath.
At the anode, electrons are removed from the water and it is oxidized, in this reaction:
2H2O -----> O2 + 4H+ + 4e-
At the cathode, electrons are added to water and it is reduced:
2H2O + 4e- -----> 2H2 + 4OH-
So at the anode we get oxygen gas and hydrogen ions, at the cathode hydrogen gas and hydroxide ions.
Other products can be formed depending on what the electrodes are made from and how the electrolysis chamber is built. If the cathode is made from iron, it will react with the hydroxide ions to make brown, insoluble iron hydroxide:
Fe3+ + 3OH- -----> Fe(OH)3
Chlorine gas can be formed, but this isn't because the electrodes are made of carbon. It will only happen if sodium chloride is added to the water. In this case, the chloride ions in the water can oxidise to chlorine and combine with hydroxide ions to form hypochlorite:
Cl2 + 2OH- -----> Cl- + OCl- + H2O
False misleading statement by other companies that use the DUAL Polarity claim that their machines can create more positive ions or negative ions depending on what mode the machine is in (positive or negative). This is a false statement. The current coming from the water module acts as a stimulus or Optimizer to break up the H2O (water) and the NACL (salt). Current will always flow the same way, meaning only from negative to positive (as stated above), so the breakup of the water molecule & salt will be exactly the same. The molecule makeup of the H2O and the NACL is what determines how many negative ions and positive ions are being produced NOT THE CURRENT (measured in e-). Just by adding salt this creates about a 2 to 1 ratio of negative ions (just like the ocean).
An example of this false statement is stated on AMD IONCLEANSE webpage. They state that depending on what 'supposed' mode (positive/negative) their unit is set to, affects differently the combination of Hydrogen & Oxygen gas release. They say it breaks down in:
POSITIVE MODE: 4H2O + 4e- a 2H2 + 4OH- OR
NEGATIVE MODE: 2H2O a O2 + 4H+ + 4e-.
This is a false statement because as you can see above where we explain how really 'water electrolysis' works, the electrolysis creates at the anode water is oxidized (2H2O -----> O2 + 4H+ + 4e-) and at the cathode water is reduced: (2H2O + 4e- -----> 2H2 + 4OH- )
END RESULT OF ALL FOOTBATH ELECTROLYSIS PROCESS: The overall effect from the footbath electrolysis will always breakdown in to 2H_2 0 = 2H_2 + O_2 (details click here from American Chemical Society

ANSWER: SINGLE POLARITY
The harmful positive ion (kation) is a particle that loses an electron. The healthful negative ion (anion) gains an electron in the valency orbit; that is it increases the ability to absorb and utilize oxygen and reduces any excess of harmful serotonin.
These two small invisible electrified particles have an effect on our physical and mental well-being and we are constantly bombarded with negative and positive ions (eg. polluted air). The negative ions make us feel good, they destroy harmful bacteria. The positive ions make us feel bad (TV. screen produces positive ions).
If the positive ions occur naturally in sufficient numbers, for instance during the onset of the commonly known hot and dry desert winds, the winds cause depression, nausea, insomnia, irritability, lassitude, migraine, asthma attacks, and also affect the normal function of the thyroid glands. Biochemically speaking, the body becomes exhausted and this can lead to an increase in accidents, violent crime and suicides. These can be counteracted with the beneficial negative ions.
Negative Ions are the good ions. Positive ions are depleting. You want negative ions NOT positive ions. The units on the market that claim their machine can create more negative ions or positive ions depending on which mode the unit is set too is not only inaccurate but why would you want positive ions?

ANSWER: NEGATIVE ION
We ( OPTIMUM ) have
built both performance and safety into our newest
generation of machines:
• The Power supply design uses state - of - the - art regulator technology (unlike Transformer Rectifier [TR] technology from the 1960 s that many other manufacturers employ)
• The use of a regulator makes the unit safer; TR technology, on the other hand, can malfunction and cause ripples and spikes or static interference
• A dual regulation system, featuring:
• a switching regulator with over - current and over - voltage protection
• adjustable regulator with fold - back circuit when the Optimizer is out of the electrolyte (does not blow a fuse)
• the first stage delivers a voltage of 24 vdc, and the second stage an adjustable voltage of. 5 vdc to 22. 5 vdc
• Clean power (pure DC power without excessive ripple) produced by the switching regulator
• Higher power (from 10 to 16 volts), which translates to creating more negative ions for cleansing and more ability to draw toxins from the body
• OPTIMUM machines operate as high as 3.0 AMPs for the standard model and 5.5 AMPs for the professional model; because the units operate at higher amps, they produce a more powerful footbath which translates to more negative ions.
• Full digital current display with large, easy to adjust knobs
• Adjustable current control for a variety of external variables ( no other unit allows you to do this ):
• Differences in human skin resistance
• Differences in the water used
• Differences in the electrolyte/electrolysis
• Safe construction through three levels of safety protection: a fallback circuit that turns itself off if it detects too much current; an external fuse that shuts down the machine if the fuse blows; and an internal fuse that offers overall protection for the entire unit
• We have a chassis ground for all internal assemblies to stop any voltage potential ever being on the case. (no need for a GFI certification)
• An Optimizer water module that lasts for an average of 60 footbaths and easy to to replace parts
• Components used in the OPTIMUM machine are UL rated and CE approved, and the wiring and connectors are also CSA approved
• Investment in quality construction materials that costs more to build the OPTIMUM machines, but assures a high quality, safe and durable product.
• OPTIMUM machine costs more to build due to the quality of the parts. Other units out in the market are produced for under $100 dollar s then are sold from $495 up to $1900.
• OPTIMUM Engineer team has over 40 years experience working with power supplies. These range from TR units to the cigarette pack sized power supplies producing 30,000vdc that are sitting on the moon and beyond.
• Most units on the market are using a Transformer Rectifier (TR) concept. This is technology from the 1960's. Since then there have been several evolutions in the power supply technology. The OPTIMUM unit does not use the Transformer Rectifier concept. By using qualified components and holding the output below 24vdc anywhere in the unit, the OPTIMUM machine is ahead of the footbath industry.
• Adjustable current control is imperative due to a variety of external variables:
• Differences in human skin resistance
• Differences in the water used
• Differences in the electrolyte/electrolysis
• Other units on the market (even units w preprogrammed buttons, ** explained below ) DO NOT allow you to adjust the current (except our OPTIMUM unit), even the more expensive units like AMD IONCLEANSE & EB305Pro, Aqua Detox, PureCharge,etc.:
o Controlling Amperage by adding salt is the inexpensive way (other units)
o Controlling Amperage through the ability to adjust the current is the ideal way & costs more to build (our OPTIMUM units)
** There are several factors that raise or lower the Amperage: current, salt, human body skin resistance, and water. If you the current or the salt the Amperage moves up. Other units do not allow you to adjust the current. Even if the other unit has preprogrammed buttons to select which amperage, you still are adding salt until the unit notifies you when the salt has increased the desired programmed amperage. The only way to raise the Amperage with these machines is to add more salt. This means there is a straight 24 volt current coming through since you ar e not able to adjust the current. If you were to add too much salt, then you either have to dilute the water or dump the water out then start over. With our machine, the salt, body and water stay constant and then you either rai se or lower the current to get to the desired Amperage. Our bodies differ; there are differences in the resistance, capacitance, and inductance within each of us on a daily basis. With the capability of adjusting the current we are able to treat the customer as an individual other than as some inert object in spite of environmental changes in the air, water and food we consume on a daily basis. To thrust a straight 24 volt current, as these other machines do, on a body is too muchOur. It can be draining to the body.
Our OPTIMUM machine allows you to have full control over the Amperage through adjusting the current. Any footbath unit that is small in size cannot deliver the power we can. They are not adjustable to the user's needs (meaning current), none of them have both the fold back and a fuse on the output delivered to the user for safety reasons. We ha ve the adjustable power supply that is capable of 150 watts and has an output of 2.5 to 23 volts. This cannot fit in to a smaller package unless their cost is at least $1500. No footbath on the market is using this because it costs too muc h. The technology to be able to control the current will not fit in to a small box.
ANSWER: CONTROL AMPS via CURRENT not by SALT
OPTIMUM units are the most powerful machines on the market: Most of the units in the market operate only as high as 1.4 to 2.5 AMPS.
1550I model runs as high as 3.00 AMPS & our OPTIMUM Professional
models run as high as 5.5 AMPS.
ANSWER: At min 3 Amps
OPTIMUM ionic footbath units run at 10,000 Hertz and NOT 60 Hertz: - Most of the units out in the market operate at 60 hertz which is a resonant frequency of a healthy heart. OPTIMUM units run at 10,000 Hertz which when graphed is a smooth line vs. a spike lined graph of 60 Hertz.
If you plot the 60 cycle and the 60 hertz signals you will see that they have common points sixty times in a minute. This is th e point of resonance that could cause a reaction. The easiest way for the public to envision this is to think of sound. Ever use the quiet, sound can cel ling devices? They are used on airplanes and sometimes promoted for use in your home. They work with something often called 'white noise' which mea ns it has enough frequencies and harmonics to cancel the sound before it gets to your ear drums. Harmonics cancel sound. I do not know what the direct risk is of harmonics cancelling a heartbeat, and do not plan to find out with any of our users
ANSWER: 10,000 hz
OPTIMUM ionic footbath units' generate IONS at a higher VOLTAGE - Other machines produce ions around 300 - 400 milliV (or 0.400 volts), very low voltage. OPTIMUM runs 35 times higher than this. Depending on the amps being ran during a session, as an example 1.6 amps (only 1/2 the full power of our machine), the OPTIMUM machine would be around 14 to 15 volts, again 35 times higher. The OPTIMUM standard machine runs as high as 3.00 Amps & the OPTIMUM ES8000i runs as high as 5.5 Amps there by the ion voltage would be even higher. A client would barely feel anything at a.400 v (the other machines). Their electrodes (water module) would last much longer because they are doing le ss work. When trying to cure anything that has had an adverse effect on the body, do we want to cleanse it at the same rate as the toxin build up? A 50 year old person would have to take footbaths for 50 years to neutralize the accumulated toxins. At the age of 100, who cares?
We have had independent labs test our bath water against other footbaths machines and we far out produce the number of ions in the water. This is due to several reasons:
we run more current through our water module, higher power, and a faster cubic per meter rate (meaning that our machine processes the water at a faster rate).
ANSWER: Test results coming soon
Most vendors produce their unit at a cost under $100 dollars then sell them for $495 up to $1900. Ours costs significantly more for better quality without pricing our machine accordingly. We price our units moderately. Other units on the market range from $200 - $3600
• Advanced surface design and larger surface metal plates to enhance the ionic osmosis process; the Optimizer generates ions about 35 times higher than the average footbath
• Use of higher grade stainless steel and larger thicker gauge construction (318 stainless steel)
• Clean power supply and discharge, producing more negative ions
• After using the Optimizer for an average of ~60 or more baths (depends on amps level & copper tub) or until the cathode plates are depleted, then simply unbolt cathode plates, insert new plates and bolt in. Others are cumbersome and if not placed correctly in with the connectors their machines will blow a fuse.
• The unique construction of the Optimizer includes large electrode metal plates made of high grade stainless steel and a thicker gauge for the outer cathode plate. The larger plates have a larger surface area so that it has the longest possible circuit for the corona action (electricity jumping from one electrode to another) that produces the ions. There are two sets of plates, two cathodes and two anodes, for a total of four plates. The two sets provide a longer electronic field for the corona activity to take place. The plates (cathodes and anodes) are spaced and staggered to promote a fast, strong, and consistent discharge process for maximum corona effect.
• Our new water module lasts longer and is stronger with ~60 (more or less) baths. Other companies claim 50-100 baths. This is because they are running less current through the water module to get more baths. We are about quality & not quantity. If we run less current through our water module then we could easily get 100 are more baths.
In a nutshell, here is the way the Optimizer functions from a technical standpoint: Through the process of electrolysis (separating elements by passing an electronic current through them) chemical reactions occur at the electrodes (cathodes/anodes). The corona discharge path travels from the cathodes to the anodes; this release of metal from the cathode (positive) plate to the anode (negative) plate is called "plating". Each electrode attracts ions that are of the opposite charge. Positively - charged ions (called cations) move towards the cathode, and negatively - charged ions (anions) move toward the anode.
• The cathodes, which erode, are designed for optimum thickness before they are depleted, thus enhancing the life of the Optimizer. Overall, the Optimizer is designed to deliver a maximum amount of power at minimum cost due to the design and materials used in construction.
• The machines that use disposable small rings/plates for their water module get an average of 14 baths between replacements. We more than double the plate thickness and surface area to get an extended life making ours lasting 4 times more at ~ 60 baths. With only having to replace the cathode plates @ $49 a set for the OPTIMUM water module, the cost per footbath ranges at ~$.82.
The replacement ring modules actually come out to be more expensive than our Optimizer module replacement plates. The cost of the replacement ring water module comes to $3.74 per foot bath compared to our $.82. This was calculated by determining the total cost of the replacement ring water element, rings, cables, etc that would have to be replaced in a one year time frame
ANSWER: Larger thicker Plates
• a fallback circuit that turns itself off if it detects too much current;
• an external fuse that shuts down the machine if the fuse blows;
• and an internal fuse that offers overall protection for the entire unit
• The OPTIMUM Copper Footbath Tub is the prefered tub over a plastic tub. The copper material is a conductor which increases the volumn of electrons (current)
thereby increasing the benefits of the detox treatment. Not only do you get more treatments with the OPTIMUM water array since copper's conductive powers reduce the need of current to raise the amperage.
• Another benefit of using the Copper tub is copper's healing frequencies. Wearing copper on the body is used for healing.
• The OPTIMUM Copper tubs are hand crafted with 100 % copper metal that contains 0 % beryllium. Beryllium is a known carcinogen creating the greenish patina, so polishing is not necessary.
• The typically used Plastic detox footbath tubs are not conductive material so as the current moves from the water array the current dissipates. The copper tub amplifies the current flow
ANSWER: Copper tub
• Himalayan Salt is our preferred choice due to the natural crystalline form and how the body metabolizes it so easily. Normal Table Salt has lost its natural form since it has been processed.
• EPSON Salt: Epson salt is not a salt. It is magnesium so there for you lose the osmosis process
ANSWER: Himalayan Salt
A wristband is used to ground the detox footbath unit by grounding it to the body! Scary and cheaply made. Used as a marketing gimmick by stating it is used 'work on the upper body' or 'completes the circuitry'. W rist bands are used to stop the damage of CMOS units. Most detox footbath units sold today use Transformer Rectifier (TR) electronics which doesn't use CMOS. Static occurs, for example when we walk & is amplified when wearing nylon.
Wrist bands conduct the static electricity from the body preventing the charge going to the CMOS unit. If not then the electrical static charge will destroy the CMOS circuits instantly or causes a slow deterioration until the complete failure. Some of the conductive wristbands may require a liquid to be applied to the skin for added conductivity depending on the quality of the wristband.
Most circuit designers "know their stuff" and design the circuits such that the input and output pins of the integrated circuits are connected into circuitry such that they are buffered from outside forces. Our units have the proper buffering so that stray voltages cannot and do not reach the components that can be affected by static. In addition the care of our unit is electrically connected to earth ground, this will direct any stray charge that even gets to the case to ground and protect the components as well.
The wristband is clearly marketed as a gimmick. Do you where wristbands when using a computer or cellular phones? No so then why do you need grounding for a detox footbath?
What matters in a footbath process is the production of ions mingling with the body. Our units DON'T have WRISTBANDS since we use a chassis ground for all internal components stopping any potential voltage.
ANSWER: No Wristband, our units are grounded
It has been stated by various companies that the water colors relate to different organ cellular waste and other body parts. We do not support this analysis of water. There is no scientific data supporting this analysis & some colors can appear without a body. Not all impu rit ies can be seen with the naked eye just as you cannot see the impurities in water. In order to prove that this process does pull out impurities, we ha ve performed control tests (click here for test results ) showing that heavy metals exist in the water after the 35 minute bath & also encapsulated on the water modules' rings. When water samples are tested by labs we need to specify what to test for & since the range of impurities a body may contain are too many to specify, we decided to on heavy metals. At minimum this proved that particles are moving out of the body.
More important than the color change is an oily substance on the surface thereby indicating energy being produced (called EMA SS by researchers) and the change in color of the urine caused by the release of toxins & stimulation & elimination of the lymphatic system.
With different water conditions your OPTIMUM unit will not necessarily cause color changes in the water; however, the very process of electrolysis of the water causes color changes in the water.. This is called oxidation (which is mainly the orange color, not jo ints as what is stated in the color charts). The interaction of the OPTIMUM water module with the City added chemicals can cause quite a discoloration in the water. It must neutralize those chemicals and energize the water. Some sediment is seen depending upon the amounts of solids that are inh erent in water to begin with. The final result has to do with the health of the person being treated. This will then determine the water color change.
The OPTIMUM FOCUS ionic foot spa process creates an osmosis environment, where toxins move out from the body. The water starts off clear when the feet are first placed in the water. At the end of the thirty five minute session, the footbath water will have colors due to the oxidation, cellular body waste & toxins/impurities in the water. Toxins are drawn out from the body due to this osmosis environment. Human Cells have been viewed under a darkfield microscope that shows improvements after just 1 treatment. It shows the humans cells as rounded & free-floating, showing oxygenation and hydration has occurred. The human cell walls are less dense & clearer. The OPTIMUM FOCUS ionic foot spa balances the meridians and energizes the body.
OPTIMUM FOCUS IONIC FOOT SPA BENEFITS:
Cleanse the Cells
Boost the Immune System
Clearer Skin and Complexion
Stimulates the lymphatic systems
Relief of Pain
Stress and Fatigue Relief
Decrease Swelling and Inflammation
OPTIMUM FOCUS Detox Footbath generates negative oxygen ions absorbed by the body's cells boosting the cell's energy & increasing cellular waste removal, helping the body to restore it’s normal balance. A healthy human cell has a charge approximately 70-90 millivolts or .7-.9 volts, just less than a volt. A cell operates optimally within this range of voltage. Cells that are injured or stressed will measure as low as .1-.2 volts, resulting in both poor waste discharge and poor nutritional absorption. Build up of positive ions from poor diets, stress and toxic environment will lower a cell's voltage.
The OPTIMUM FOCUS Detox Footbath will generate ions that are 35 times more powerful than other detox footbath systems. At 1.60 amps (amperage) for example, the OPTIMUM FOCUS detox footbath is approximately 14v-15v. The OPTIMUM FOCUS ES1550i Standard model will run up to 3.00 amps & the OPTIMUM FOCUS Professional models run up to 5.50 amps. The body absorbs the negative oxygen ions generated from the footbath negating the positive ions (free radicals). The cells are stimulated & energized by the highly charged ions releasing cellular waste & strengthening the cells. The body then begins to function at its normal energy levels.
The Optimum Focus detox footbath uses a similar process that is medically approved called Peritoneal Dialysis which uses osmosis to move cellular waste from the body.
Osmosis is where fluids pass thru a semi-permeable membrane where a solution is less dense & moves to a denser solution. With the human body, this body fluid transfer moves toxins from the body into the denser solution (the molecule size must be smaller than the pores of the membrane to pass thru). Protein & other types of molecules that are too large to pass through the membranes pores will not be removed. During the 35 minute detox footbath treatment, the human body only releases what is small enough and ready to be released and then the rest goes out thru the body's natural elimination system. Each footbath treatment can affect the body in different ways as it moves towards a healthy balance. Each person is unique and will react differently to others. Once the body's energy field is stimulated, the cells release their toxins into the lymphatic system and any cellular waste that is not pulled out during the 35 minute process, will continue to move out thru the lymphatic system. Examples of potential reactions are stronger urine smell or color, and/or increased bowel movement which can last from 3 to 5 days after having one treatment.
Himalayan Salt, 1/2 a teaspoon, is added to the footbath water to act as the electrolyte for the Optimizer water array (electrode) and to create the denser saline solution needed for the osmosis process. The Himalayan Crystal Salt has a balanced crystalline structure, which is easier for the body to metabolize and the 84 trace minerals provide the electrolytes needed for the current to move thru the water.
When the Himalayan Salt is added to the footbath water, the Na (sodium) & the Cl (chloride) immediately break up to form negative ions & positive ions. The Optimizer water array is designed to maximize the production of negative ions. The negatively charged ions will be bound with a positive or a less negatively charged element. The Optimizer array creates 2 streams, one is hydrogen and the other oxygen, in the water. This and the added salt makes the footbath water denser accelerating the osmosis process.
OPTIMIZER Array (Electrode) - has cathode and anode plates. The cathode plates is where the electrons from the power source (current) move in to the solution. The negatively charged cathode attracts the negative ions (cations) in the footbath electrolyte solution. The positively charged anode is the surface where the reactant that is being oxidized deposits the electrons it loses. The anode attracts the positively charged ions (anions) in the footbath electrolyte solutions.
Footbath Water (Electrolyte): The detox footbath saline water is the solution that allows the ions to move between the electrode plates.
NOTE: The Optimizer electrode charge isn't the same as what is in the electrolytic devices & electrochemical cells.
Amperage is how strong the footbath treatment is. Min of 3 Amps, most units only go from 1.4 to 2.5 amps. Not very strong. more info on Amps
~150 w for professional use, 60w for home use. The higher the watts the higher you can go in amperage.
Amps needs to be controlled by adjusting the current and not by adding salt. more info on Amps
Single more info
Do not want the unit built in to tub that way you can use also in a bath tub or pedi chair.
A copper tub is ideal since it is conductive where plastic is not. More info
100% pure copper, beryllium is a carcinogen more info
Ideally plates permanently connected
Separate so you can use in any type of tub .. even a bath tub
need access to array plates for removing mineral & toxins.
NO wristband. The unit not only is grounding the unit using your body but it is also not safe.
A high non-processed grade salt. More info
All of the verification testing has been performed by an independent third party laboratory of national recognition. Severn Trent Laboratories (STL) leads in testing for environmental substances within the United States and the United Kingdom, receiving samples from all over the world using sampling methodology systems such as Well Wizard™.
The first of our testing was an analysis of the water utilized in the footbath process.
The control environment was established by making readings of the solution before the test began, testing as specific time intervals with no feet in the solution and then using the same water source, same electrical unit and same electrodes in the solutions with feet in the solution for 35 minutes.
Exhibit one shows the results of this experiment; it is very evident that there is nickel, copper, iron, chromium, lead and manganese are in the solution upon the completion of the footbath.
The complete test report from Severn Trent is contained in Appendix 1.

Almost all detox footbath manufacturers state that the water colors correlate to the cellular waste from the various parts of the body & organs. Not only do we not support the diagnosing of health issues based on the color of the water, there are also no scientific studies or data supporting this type of analysis. At minimum you will get a orangey color that is due to the oxidation and also depending on what is in the water will create colors even without a body. Not all impurities are visible. However we did want to prove that toxins can come out of the body during the treatment so we conducted control tests (click here for test results) demonstrating that heavy metals existed in the footbath water after a 35 min. treatment & also were plated on the water arrays' rings. When testing for what elements are in the water samples, you must specify what the lab is to test for. What impurities to test for could be easilyg in the thousands so the testes focused on heavy metals.
Other forms of release & testing can be done on the oily film that forms on the surface indicating body fluid, change in urine color or urine smells due to the elimination of toxins & stimulation of the lymphatic system.
Color changes in the footbath water will vary due to the different water conditions & bodies; however, at minimum the electrolysis of the water creates a color change known as oxidation (which is mainly the orange color, not joints as what is stated in the color charts). The interaction of the OPTIMUM FOCUS water module with the City added chemicals can cause quite a discoloration in the water. It must neutralize those chemicals and energize the water. Some sediment is seen depending upon the amounts of solids that are inherent in water to begin with. The final result has to do with the health of the person being treated. This will then determine the water color change.
Simply regular hot tap water and add 1/2 teaspoon of Himalayan salt crystals. That's it!
A detox footbath session average time is 35 minutes. We recommend starting off w 'Deep Cleanse Series' (14 treatments), roughly 3 x week; then take a 21 day break and repeat again. These cycles can be done at a minimum once a year.
The object is called the "Optimizer Water Array" (previously called Exciter).
The OPTIMUM detox footbath power unit uses 2 regulation internal stages; 1st stage outputs a 24vdc voltage, 2nd stage outputs an adjustable range of voltage from 1/2 vdc- 22.5vdc. Our power unit contains an external fuse which is a safety device to protect the system. Other manufacturers use an internal fuse (located inside) which shuts off the voltage & the unit.
We suggest not using a cell phone that could affect the electromagnetic field. The footbath unit affects your energitic field & cellular field so any other influences, ie cell phone, can affect the detox process. The more relaxed you are the more you will get the most out of your detox footbath.
Full bath is optional and may be done dealing with a uppoer body disorder. However the footbath does work on the whole body.
Contact Us, if you refer a friend and they order one of our footbath units, you may collect a referrral fee or become a distributor and collect commission.
Pour the footbath water in to the toilet.
Most people dont drink enough water and are dehydrated. If one is dehydrated, you can feel headachy or nauseous during the treatment. Hydrating with water will help with these possible side effects. Most people are also deficient in at least 1 mineral. Taking mineral supplements helps with the detoxing and footbath process.
We live in a toxic world. Breathing the air & eating food can re-toxify the body in a rapid manner. It will take vigilance on our part to help our bodies to remain detoxed.
There will be a certain amount of discoloration in the water due to the processing of the chemicals the city puts in. There is also the interaction of the minerals from the Himalayan salt crystals. The degree of differences with the feet added will show up from person to person. Some will have more color, some will have more floaters, or more film on top of the water.
Suggested cost $35.00-$45.00 per treatment. Package discounts can be offered, especially for the deep cleanse series of 14 sessions.
Many of our clients and practitioners have shown increased results by using the copper tub instead of a plastic tub due to it's conductive properties. It is optional.
NO and is imppossible since the max voltage is 24v. If a person has open cut on their feet while submerged in the water then a person can experience a shock but not hurftul. Dont do treatments until cut has healed.
** Make sure the connector does not get wet. Rinse off the Optimizer water array with water and then disinfect it. Then rinse the Optimizer water array with Hot water. **Make sure the Optimizer water is completely dry before putting away.**
Based on client feedback, practitioner feedback and our own testing yes. With our tests we showed aluminum and other heavy metals both in the footbath water and plated to the electrode arrays.
The OPTIMUM footbath treatments can help the body to detox and help heal itself which helps to improve the immune system. We make "no claims" of curing diseases & as always contact your physician for advise.
Table (processed) salt has been stripped of its naturally formed crystals & minerals. Even Sea Salt has crystalline structures that are irregular & disconnected. The body has a difficult time processing it. The Himalayan salt's crystal structure is balanced & has natural branching. Himalayan salt contains 84 trace mineral elements. Based on this, we recommend Himalayan salt.
We suggest our copper tub however if you decide not to then you can purchasse a 15 Qt size tub at your local store.
Any type of water can be used. We found the same results no matter what water is used. The footbath water should be comfortably warm which helps to open the pores.
The original footbath unit was developed in Australia.
Certain prescription drugs no. The unabsorbed/unprocessed drug can be drawn from the body. We recommend taking the footath treatment after enough time has passed for the body to absorb the medication. Check with your doctor before treatment.
Certain individuals, after several treatments, have stated their toenail fungus & athletes foot have disappeared or improved significantly.
Be aware of minute changes in energy, sleep patterns, mood changes, relief of health ailments, etc.
Depends on the individual. If sleep is an issue, then try before bedtime. If the treatment gives you energy, then do in the morning.

You are more sensitive to the sensations of your own body. Some people can feel a pulling sensation or even a tingling sensation in problem areas. This is the process working.
Not an issue.
The unit should last a very long time as long as it is used as the instructions are stated. We give a 3 yr limited warranty w the option to purcahse and extended warranty.
We have found an average of 50 - 60 footbaths depending on the amperage used and how well you take care of it.
Everyone is unique & will experience the OPTIMUM FOCUS treatment in their own way. Some can feel elated, energized. Others may want to sleep. Some may feel nauseous or dizzy (if dehydrated or heavy toxins being released in the body). Some have even experienced leg & foot cramps (lack of minerals). Those who are sensitive may feel tingling or pulling sensation during the treatment.
As a practitioner for over three years, I have some amazing health results from footbaths. Some of the most dramatic have been lumps that have completely disappeared after usually one footbath.
I have treated three Vietnam veterans with agent orange in their legs and feet - After taking several footbaths, the itching, burning, and stinging, as well as the discoloration in the skin in these areas were all dramatically reduced and all were returned to being comfortable once again. One man had acetone poisoning. He had been seriously ill for six years. After two and a half months of weekly footbaths, he was completely restored to his former health. In one woman's footbath, the removal of heavy metals was so extreme that the substance coming from her body through her feet was black and gritty -she had been an airline stewardess for many years. "..."Toxicity is a major health concern in our present polluted society. We must have a method to detoxify the body - The energetic footbath is in my opinion the most effective way to address this serious problem.
I have been using the footbath since 2000, and some results have been increased energy. My complexion is very clear and the whites of my eyes are white. I'm very healthy. People notice something different about me and want whatever it is. My joints no longer feel stiff, and I just feel an all over renewal.
I've found a machine that really helps diabetes. It is the footbath machine. It is new to the United States. It cleans the poisons and toxins out of your system. I got one because I've been a hairdresser all of my life and my body was extremely toxic. What I didn't realize was how much it would help my husband who is diabetic. He had no feeling in the bottoms of his feet for 3 ~ years. After three treatments the feeling came back. When his legs were swollen it took the swelling and pain out of his legs and ankle. He lost seven pounds after that treatment over a two day period. After continued use of the footbath machine his breathing got better. His lung capacity was 40% and now it is 79% Also, he had no trouble with his heart when he had his hernia surgery. Normally, he would end up in the ICU unit whenever he had any surgical procedure. I feel like I have found the fountain of youth. The best of health to all of you. Thank you.
On the first visit it looked like my feet were in a tub of transmission fluid when I finished the footbath. I've had severe swelling and pain in my right elbow, bursal sack. It was crystallizing. After the first treatment, the swelling kept going down and just two days later back to normal. I have more energy and don't seem to need naps during the day. Very impressed with the results!
