known as Herxheimer Reaction,
is a rapid elimination of toxins.
What Is A Healing Crisis:
A healing crisis - also known as a 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,
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.
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 -
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
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
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
* 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.
and What To Do:
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.
Remember, In actuality, you are not getting worse,
you are getting better, as
many who have experienced this will attest to.
To minimize a 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.

* 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
* Take detoxification slowly ... one day at a time.
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. Take it slow.
