Healing Crisis and it's symptoms

Posted on January 8, 2013 at 7:40 PM

A Healing crisis or the "Herxheimer Reaction" as it is also know occurs when the body tries to eliminate toxins at a faster rate than they can properly be disposed of. The more toxic one's body, the more severe the detoxification, or healing crisis. Symptoms can range from mild to severe depending on your case. Most people when they start to feel worse conclude that the treatment is not working, when in fact it is a sign that the treatment is working perfectly and that your body is going through the process of cleaning itself of impurities, toxins and imbalances. Healing crisis can occur at any time during detox and normally pass within 1-5 days, but on rare occasions can last several weeks. If you are suffering from a major illness, the healing crisis will more than likely mimic the disease itself. It’s perfectly normal to feel ill, tired and sleepy during the first few days of a cleanse because it is at that point in the detox that your body is dumping the most amount of toxins into the blood stream for elimination. Some toxins that we detoxify from are medication,drugs, alcohol, sugar, caffeine, nicotine, sulfur, phthalates, azo dyes, junkfood, meat, dairy, grains, soda, artificial sweetener, hormones, mercury and other chemicals. Below I have compiled a list of symptoms that are very common during detox.
