Are the Ki Flow® Ion Therapy necklaces and bracelets health products or fashion accessories?
Actually, both! They are jewelry with health benefits. Although you may purchase them initially for the health benefits, we think you will be very happy with how they look as well! Some people even purchase them primarily for the appearance.
Much time and effort was devoted to designing these products. In fact, the designer of Ki Flow Ion Therapy Jewelry is the same person who designed the Sony Walkman!
Can I wear Ki Flow® Ion Therapy Jewelry while I am sleeping?
YES! You can wear the necklaces and bracelets 24 hours a day. The more you wear them, the stronger their effects will be. We do recommend, however, that you remove them when bathing or swimming.
Are Ki Flow® Ion Therapy necklaces and bracelets waterproof?
They are not harmed by water at all. However, they do not function as well when water-logged (you will have to dry them out for optimal performance). Thus, although they can be worn in virtually all situations, we recommend that you do not immerse them in water.
How can I tell that the Ki Flow® Ion Therapy Jewelry is working? What if I can't feel the difference?
This is a very good question! Each person's experience is likely to be slightly different. Some people are more sensitive than others, but most people will start to feel a difference immediately (please view our testimonials for some examples of what to expect).
For others, the internal change can be so gradual that they can't detect a difference. For this reason, with Ki Flow Ion Therapy Jewelry, it is possible that you may not "feel" anything for as long as a couple of months after you start wearing the products. Be assured, however, that they are "working". For instance, for a relatively healthy person, they may function primarily to protect the immune system from the effects of electromagnetic fields and other environmental toxins. Thus in this case they are working by keeping you healthy and free from illness. This may not be perceived as a change, but it is certainly a great benefit nonetheless. In any case, please keep in mind that just because you don't feel anything doesn't mean it is not working!
What is the life-span of Ki Flow® Ion Therapy necklaces and bracelets?
They typically will last for 1-2 years, and often longer than this.
We recommend that you replace them when the mineral powder in the tube feels hard (rather than granular or soft) when you squeeze it.
The silicon tube is breathable; it contains nanoholes that allow negative ions and far infrared rays to be emitted.
At the same time, through the same tiny holes, the tubing also absorbs toxins and waste materials that have been eliminated through your skin.
Over the course of time, the minerals wil gradually lose their "crunchy" feeling and become softer to the touch.
Even when this happens, the products are still functioning just fine. It is only when the minerals harden up that the product needs replacing.
Only in rare situations (when someome is detoxing rapidly through the skin) will the Ki Flow products need to be replaced in less than 1 year.
Could I have a "reaction" to the products?
The tubing is made of surgical silicon rubber and is safe for most people. However, we do not recommend these products if you are severely allergic to silicon or rubber products. (So far, there have been no such reports in Japan since the products were first introduced to the market in 2000.)
In addition, the natural healing process initiated by wearing Ki Flow Ion Therapy Jewelry can be interpreted as an adverse reaction, at least at the outset. Wearing the products can stimulate the metabolism and promote the elimination of toxins that have accumulated in cells over the course of years. In some cases, this healing process can lead to such symptoms as headache, fatigue, stiff and aching joints, skin rashes or sinus drainage. This is not an "allergy" or "illness", but can easily be confused with one. The symptoms usually indicate that toxins are being eliminated from congested tissue, and will naturally pass with time. See below for more information on the natural healing process.
If you do experience such symptoms after using these products, we recommend you shorten the length of time you wear the product each day, and then gradually work up to a longer usage time. We also recommend that you get adequate rest and drink lots of water to help flush the toxins out of your system.
There is a small space of tubing that seems empty. Is anything wrong?
No, that is perfectly normal. During shipping, occasionally the granules may settle on one end of the product, leaving a small portion of the tubing that appears to have little or no powder in it. This does not affect how the product works. Also, when you have worn your Ki Flow Ion Therapy Jewelry for an extended period of time, the powder may settle on one or both ends. For instance, if you wear your necklace with the clasp in front, the granules may settle on both sides of the clasp, leaving an empty space in the back. Again, this is perfectly normal and does not affect the functionality of the products.
The Natural Healing Process
Understanding the Basic Healing Principles of Natural Cures
The concept of the natural healing process is widely accepted in Asian countries, and is increasingly recognized in Western cultures as well. Oriental medicine teaches that illness does not occur without cause. The underlying causes of a disease must be discovered and removed or treated before a person can recover completely. Unfortunately, allopathic physicians and surgeons often view symptoms as the real disease and make alleviating or eliminating the symptoms the goal of treatment. This is often done without addressing the underlying cause and does not promote a lasting cure. The naturopathic physician, on the other hand, seeks to treat the causes of disease, rather than to merely eliminate or suppress symptoms.
The Road to Better Health May Begin with a Healing Process
As you move toward better health with Ki Flow Ion Therapy products, natural healing programs, and better nutrition, healing begins to occur. As part of the healing process, the body will begin to discard toxic residues which have built up over the course of years. This natural process is often accompanied by symptoms similar to those of an allergy or mild illness. During the initial phase of healing, as your body begins to clean house (detoxify), and your vital energy begins to repair and rebuild internal organs, you may experience headache, uneasiness, flu-like symptoms, fatigue, skin rashes and so on. It is important that you get adequate rest and proper nutrition during this time. These symptoms will pass as your body begins to normalize to a new level of health.
As you continue to improve, you may begin a process called retracing. You may initially feel worse before you feel better. For example, if you used to get skin rashes, the rashes may reappear or worsen for a period of time as your body eliminates toxins through the skin. You may also experience an initial increase in urination, or you may feel more nervous. In actuality, you are not getting worse, you are getting better! Eventually you will reach a plateau of better health. During the healing process, it is important to not suppress these temporary symptoms with drugs or the natural healing process may be interrupted.
Eastern medicine teaches that we all have a power within us that knows how to heal. It is a powerful and vital force waiting to be tapped, like magma pulsing beneath the surface of the earth. Let us all tap into that power!
