002. video of the week link [not to pun]:

amajordifference.com states in "The IonCleanse® Ionic Foot Bath for Naturopaths" [vsc 2013-01-10; a manufacturer marketing to naturopaths]:

"[from the description] learn how the IonCleanse® detoxifying foot bath can help your naturopathic practice [...from the video, according to their Glenn Wilhelm, they are] the world's number one foot bath detoxification system [...the company is in] Denver, CO [...] it's an incredible modality [....] in can provide incredible benefits for vitually all of your patients [...] make the right choice [...it] is consistent with the foundation of naturopathy [...] the Ionclease can make a significant impact in your business  [...] tremendous income can be generated [...] over $40,000 annually [...they've] sold well over 10,000 Ion Cleanses [...]";

Note: meanwhile, foot detox is complete bunkum.  So yeah, I'd say this is right in line with naturopathy's foundation of 'a complete reversal of values', wherein that which doesn't even work is termed incredible, wherein that which is patently science-ejected is falsely labeled science etc.
