About BioEnergiser D-Tox Spa
The BioEnergiser D-Tox Spa is an “As Seen on TV” foot bath that uses “a flow of electrons and a bioenergetic field” to provide you with a wide range of benefits in just one 30-minute treatment per day. The system claims to accomplish this by removing unwanted toxins, which “balances” your system.
The BioEnergiser D-Tox Spa is manufactured by Global TV Concepts, which is not rated with the Better Business Bureau, despite having three closed complaints within the past three years. Regarding the product specifically, its online reputation appears to be evenly mixed, with the most common complaints citing that it did not work as advertised, as well as poor quality.
How BioEnergiser D-Tox Spa System Works
According to the BioEnergiser website, your feet contain over 2,000 pores, which makes them an ideal exit point for built-up toxins within your body. As a result, the D-Tox Spa System is essentially a large bowl filled with warm salt water that claims to detox your body in 30 minutes.
After turning on the unit and placing your feet into the water, the BioEnergiser then creates “a flow of electrons and a bioenergetic field,” which are claimed to rebalance your “body’s bio-energy.” The company states that this is accomplished by balancing “the cell’s equilibrium of positive and negative ions, which will “prime” your body to begin dispersing toxins, rehydrate your cells and extract nutrients, thereby resulting in their “optimum efficiency.”
During each of your 30-minute treatment sessions, the water contained in the D-Tox Spa bowl will gradually turn brown, and may foam a little. This is claimed to be the toxins that were removed from your body.
In fact, the BioEnergiser website claims that “ongoing clinical trials conducted by medically qualified clinicians” show that the D-Tox Spa System is also an effective treatment for individuals suffering from psoriasis, eczema, leg oedema, and hyper hydrosis. However, no links are provided to support these claims.
Each BioEnergiser D-Tox Spa System comes complete with:
- D-Tox Spa Bowl & Array
- Timer & Control Unit
- 30 Bowl Liners
- 100g Low-Sodium Salt
- Measuring Spoon
- Nylon Storage Bags

According to the company you may feel a slight tingling sensation during treatment. In addition, other than a mild headache and/or dehydration, you will likely not experience any side effects from use.

Bottom Line: Is the BioEnergiser D-Tox Spa System a Scam?
While it’s not certain that the BioEnergiser D-Tox Spa System is a scam, there are definitely some things you need to know prior to finalizing your order.
First, it’s interesting to note that the exact process behind how the system works is left a mystery. For example, on the product’s FAQ page, it’s stated that the water turns brown due to “a reaction between the array and the saline solution,” and “is a natural occurrence and is the sodium being drawn out of the salt by the current.” However, it then goes on to say, “Or, it can be deposits drained from the lymph glands and or pores.” With this in mind, we read several customer reviews stating that they experienced the same water change regardless of whether or not their feet were in the bowl, which means we can safely assume it is due to the electrical current, and not to the removal of toxins.
Next, the Benefits page on the product’s website can be a little misleading. First, taking a look at the “before” and “after” infrared pictures, the first image shows an individual’s legs up to their waist line, while the second only shows up to their knees. This is important because briefly glancing at the pictures may lead you to believe that there is a significant difference between the two. In reality though, if you focus primarily on the shin area, you’ll notice that it is only slightly more red than the “before” picture, which could easily be explained by the fact that the individual’s feet are submersed in warm water. Also, the second set of pictures are based on Gas Discharge Visualization (GDV) photography (also known as Kirlian photography), which for the most part has not held up to scientific scrutiny.
Finally, the BioEnergiser D-Tox Spa System is an “As Seen on TV” product, which often have less than favorable customer reviews. As a result, the most common complaints we encountered during our research cited failure to work as advertised, and poor product quality.
