Hi Lisa! It would be best to contact your physician to make sure this is safe for you.

NO The detox foot bath works using simple salty warm water and charged ions. The bath has a coil that is placed in the warm water that creates a mild electrical current which in turn ionizes the water. This electrical field that is created stimulates the reflexology points in your feet to release toxins in the form of concentrated sweat. The reflexology points and glands in your feet are ideal for detoxing-- it is the most effective part of your body to detox. The combination of the salt, warm water, and ions gently remove the toxins while you sit and relax." There are a few contra-indications when ionic foot baths should not be used. While they are safe for most people, there are some who should avoid them. They are not to be used for people with pacemakers, type 1 diabetes, epilepsy or implanted organs should not use it. Anyone undergoing radiation or chemotherapy should not use an ionic foot bath. They're also not considered safe for women who are pregnant or might be pregnant. Do not use a foot bath if you have an open wound on your foot.
