The Healing Crisis
article was written about Body Biotics™ (formerly known as
Nature's Biotics®) but applies to any healing crisis with any
nutritional supplement. Prescript-Assist™ does not have a
tendency to create a healing crisis.
body has an inherent desire for perfect health. We have the ability
to earn our way back to that state, no matter how "normal"
or bad our health is now. But in the meantime, the body must go
through an elimination process to achieve good health.
elimination process is often referred to as the "healing crisis."
Once the healing crisis starts, reactions may be mild or severe.
Expect ups and downs as it takes awhile to get good health back.
a healing crisis, every body system works together to eliminate
waste products and set the stage for regeneration. Old tissues are
replaced with new. A disease occurs when the body cannot make it
through its natural healing crises for one reason or another. The
body is "locked" into a destructive and shut down place,
physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually.
of the healing crisis may at first be identical to the disease it
is meant to heal. But there is an important difference: elimination.
A cleansing, purifying process is underway and stored wastes are
in a free-flowing state. The body, mind, and spirit are no longer
"locked." Sometimes pain and symptoms during the healing
crisis are more intense than that of the chronic disease, but it
is temporary and necessary.
healing crisis will usually bring about past conditions and personal
issues. People often forget the diseases, issues, or injuries they
have had in the past, but are usually reminded during the healing
crisis so that they can heal their unfinished business. This arises
in whatever order the body is capable of handling at that time.
reactions of the healing crisis could include skin eruptions, nausea,
headache, sleepiness, unusual fatigue, constipation, diarrhea, head
or chest cold, ear infections, boils, or any other way the body
uses to loosen and eliminate toxins. An initial healing crisis usually
lasts around three days but if the energy of the patient is low,
it may last a week or more.
body needs juices, and especially water to help carry off the toxins.
This is a time for rest. Be kind to yourself --- mentally, emotionally,
and of course physically.
crisis is not always enough for a complete cure. The person in a
chronic "locked" disease state will often have to go through
cycles of healing crises, with each one improving the condition
some. It has taken time to develop a chronically diseased state,
and time is required to let go of the "locked" energy,
piece by piece. A healing crisis is like peeling the layers off
the healing crisis will come after one feels their very best and
most energized, setting the stage for the elimination. The whole
body gets into action. Most people feel an energy boost at the beginning
until the toxins start dumping into the blood stream for elimination.
Go as slowly as your body needs so your elimination is gradual and
a more serious condition, there may be many small crises to go through
before the system can become healthily balanced. Everything must
be considered and given its proper place in the build-up to a healing
crisis. One should expect it and work with the body, not resentfully
the colon open during a healing crisis. This is really important!
As they say, "Health begins in the colon." If your tendency
is towards constipation then by all means use an all natural herbal
tea or herbal laxative to help the process. (If you take a hot herbal
tea, do not drink it at the same time you take Body Biotics™
[formerly named Nature's BioticsŪ] or the hot water could destroy
the living probiotics.) What's going on in your colon is that the
Body Biotics™ Soil Based Organisms get in behind all the crud
on your colon walls. As these pieces are lifted off, they can create
a "dam" effect. Do not stop taking Body Biotics™.
Cut back if you need to, even to 1/2 capsule a day. If you stop
during a healing crisis, you lose ground you gained.
Soil Based Organisms live for about 72 hours. After the walls of
the entire colon, approximately 5 feet long, have been cleansed,
you may never again experience constipation! Your body will have
repatterned itself. A doctor told me he has to use a saw to cut
out portions of the colon which have become like cement!
the way, avoid colas and chlorinated water during your cleanout
and the healing crisis because they destroy enzymes. It's a good
idea to get off them permanently as well, as carbonated drinks are
high in phosphorus and end up leaching much needed calcium out of
your body. Meat takes a LOT of calcium to digest, and a lot of enzymes
(especially if it isn't organically grown), minerals, and everything
else. So you may want to cut down your meat consumption until your
body can digest food better.
substances which inhibit or destroy enzymes include antibiotics
taken for illness, any food treated with pesticides, any animal
given antibiotics, and alcohol. If you've had radiation or chemo,
your enzymes have probably all been wiped out! Of course, keep up
mineral supplementation. This will support the action of the enzymes.
your digestive tract is restored to the strength of a teenager's,
then you can decide what diet you want to have. But by that time,
you may not crave the same destructive foods you did before! And
many of your food and temperature sensitivities may be gone!
me, a healing crisis is really worth going through!
