What are healing reactions?
Most of us don’t know about healing reactions. We know about the symptoms of
illnesses, and we know about the drugs and other therapies we use to treat the
symptoms and take away the pain. So what is a healing reaction?
The concept of healing reactions
is described in detail. As the body goes
through the process of healing and recovery, the causes of illness are cleansed,
literally moved out of the diseased organ or system of the body, and expelled
from the body altogether. This movement of toxins and pathogens out of the body
can cause us to feel worse for a while. This is the so-called healing reaction
or “crisis”. When we experience a healing reaction, we can have confidence that
the treatment we are using is actually working, and we will soon be cured of our
We would certainly like healing reactions to be minimal or
non-existent. Most of us are looking
for real cures to our illnesses and we're tired of taking drugs that treat only
symptoms and kill only the pain. As the body purges itself of toxins and
pathogens that cause sickness, we will experience some kind of healing
reaction. All healing reactions will go away eventually. A healing reaction
may last for a period of a few days or up to a few months, depending upon the
individual’s state of health and the seriousness of the illness.
Examples of Healing Reactions
Pain may occur in the internal organs
that have a problem. Headache is very common.
Various types of digestive and
respiratory discharges may occur: bile, mucus, phlegm, sinus and nasal
drainage. Other possible discharges include boils, pimples, rashes, body odors,
carbuncles, vaginal discharges, coating on tongue, and black stool.
Digestive imbalances may develop: gas, cramps, diarrhea, soft or
dark stool, frequent bowel movement, etc.
Dry mouth, sticky stool,
weakness, weight loss, and sensations of cold or heat may occur. These indicate
that the body is first strongly eliminating before the building and
strengthening phase occurs.
More sleep may be needed during
transition, and dreams may be wild.
The symptoms of existing sickness
or illness may seem to worsen at first and then improve later.
Energy may increase and cause sleeplessness.
