known as Herxheimer Reaction.
Rapid elimination of toxins.
What Is A Healing Crisis:
A healing crisis - also known as the Herxheimer
Reaction - occurs when the body is detoxifying too rapidly and
toxins are being released faster than the body can
eliminate them. A healing crisis is in
effect when the body is in the process of elimination.
Reactions may be mild or they may be severe. A healing
crisis is a natural and necessary process which can
result from any natural or holistic therapy (such as
homeopathy, naturopathy), from an improved diet, from
cessation of drug abuse, etc
One should expect a
healing crisis if major or radical changes are made in
lifestyle, habits and addictions, and work through the
detoxification process at a slower pace. The body's
inherent desire is for perfect health and we each have
the ability to make our way back to that state. The
body must go through an elimination process in order
to achieve good health and there will be ups and
downs, as you experience a process called 'retracing'.
You may feel worse before you feel better.
Symptoms will pass as your body begins to normalize to
a new level of health. One does not immediately move
into good health or 100% detoxification overnight.

When a healing crisis occurs,
it is the result of all the body systems working
together to eliminate toxicity as it prepares to
begin regeneration of new tissue and healthy cells
and the repair of internal organs. Some people have
greater toxicity than others such as those who take
prescribed medications or have taken street drugs
for many years. Long term ingestion of alcohol, junk
food and coffee will also create a healing crisis
when intake is discontinued, causing temporary
discomfort ranging from headaches or migraine, to
fatigue, skin rashes, nausea, increased urination,
constipation, flu or shaking and diarrhea as the
body detoxifies, cleanses, repairs and heals itself.
A disease crisis, on
the other hand, is not a natural process and
works against the body's natural healing
abilities. A disease occurs when the body cannot
make it through its natural healing crisis for one
reason or another and the body becomes "locked" into
a destructive and shut down place, physically,
emotionally, mentally, and spiritually.
A Crisis Occurs ...
* When the body is loaded with
mucus and clogged to the maximum limit.
* When the immune system is stressed and enough
germs are multiplying.
* When body strength and vitality is lowest.
* When the body becomes extremely cold.
* In order to save the persons life.
* May last several weeks.
Symptoms are identical
to the disease, because the names for diseases are
simply groups of symptoms listed under a common name.
But there is an important difference between a healing
crisis and a disease crisis - elimination. A healing
crisis indicates a cleansing,purifying process
is underway and stored wastes are in a free-flowing
state. Sometimes discomfort during the healing crisis
is of greater intensity than when building the chronic
disease. This may explain why there may be brief
flare-ups (retracing) in one's condition.
The healing crisis will
usually bring about past conditions in whatever
order the body is capable of handling at that time.
People often forget the diseases or injuries they
have had in the past, but are usually reminded
during the healing crisis.
Sometimes you may temporarily
feel worse as you become better.
The path to better health
sometimes begins with a natural healing crisis.
A Healing Crisis ...
* Happens only as the body is
naturally restored to normal structure and function.
* Happens only when the body has enough vitality to
stand the shock.
* Happens when a person feels the best.
* May occur immediately or after several months of
adopting a healthier lifestyle.
* Only lasts two or three days - If the energy of
the person is low, it may possibly last a week or
During the healing crisis, it
is important not to suppress these temporary
symptoms with drugs or medication, or the healing
process may become interrupted. It is also important
not to give up and back down, or revert to old
habits and lifestyle. Giving up simply prolongs the
healing process and enables the trapped toxins to
silently and slowly create serious illness or
chronic, life threatening disease.
Herxheimer Reaction and What
The Herxheimer Reaction as
discussed above, occurs when the body is detoxifying
too rapidly and toxins are being released faster
than the body can eliminate them. When this occurs,
you may suffer from headaches, nausea, skin rashes,
vomiting, and general malaise. Even though this is
but a short period in your new health regime, it
can be severe and deter you from reaching your
intended goals. You may not understand what
you are experiencing and think that you are
regressing. You are not. In actuality, you
are not getting worse, you are getting better.
To minimize Herxheimer
Reaction - Rapid elimination of toxins:
* Drink lots of water.
* Help keep the organs of elimination - bowels, lungs,
skin, kidneys - in regular working order with a
natural healthy diet.
* Exercise daily, even if only minimally.
* Get out in the sunshine and fresh air.
* Sweat out the toxins by using exercise, saunas,
baths and herbs.
* Avoid foreign chemicals, alcohol, caffeine and
refined processed foods.
* Get adequate rest and sleep. Take naps if possible.
* Take detoxification slowly ... one day at a time.
If the Herxheimer Reaction
occurs, ease up on your health detoxification
program. The more toxins there are to eliminate, the
sicker one is when they are eliminated via the skin,
bowels and urine. It is advisable to persevere and
not give up. The path to health lies infront of you,
one step at a time.
