How To Tell A Disease Crisis From A Healing Crisis
A healing crisis may develop when cleansing the body. Learn to listen to your body and rest when you are tired, drink plenty of liquids when thirsty and eat only when you are hungry.
Fruits are cleansers and eliminate toxins and can sustain the body with its natural sugar, vitamins and minerals. If you are cleansing too fast on fruits, slow down by including steamed vegetables, vegetable juices or vegetable broths. Vegetables are higher in carbohydrates and will slow down the cleansing process which may be needed when the body needs to be strengthened and built up in order to go through another cleanse.
Herbs, Vitamin C and ALJ help the body to dissolve mucus and toxins, by helping nature. Blood cleansers, Colon Cleansing, Chlorophyll or Super Algae are some agents that will help remove obstruction and congestion in the body. Enemas may be needed in case of stubborn cases of congestion. Massage therapy will speed the cleansing process. Foot reflexology will help eliminate and break up toxins. Chiropractic treatments will help the body heal faster.
Some of the following symptoms may appear during a healing crisis:
Healing will bring positive results such as a feeling of well being, less cravings for junk food, better circulation, clear skin, more energy, freedom from pain, improved digestion and disease elimination.
A Healing Crisis
Some people may want to give up when they start experiencing the worst part of the healing crisis. They do not understand what is happening to their bodies when during a healing crisis. If they eat or take drugs, the disease is stopped, but it is pushed deeper into the system to manifest itself later in a more advanced disease symptom.
Eating during the eliminating process stops the cleansing because the body has to stop the cleansing to digest the food or to process the drugs.
A disease crisis happens when the body becomes congested, with built-up toxins and ceases to function properly. In cases of colds, flu and fevers, the body is trying to cleanse and restore health to a toxic body. These are acute diseases and should not be suppressed but need to be allowed to run their course.
Can Stress Cause Disease?
Stress can cause disease by dilating the capillaries. When the capillaries dilate, it causes the pores in the capillary walls to enlarge. The walls can become hard and brittle and give out.
When the pores of the capillary walls become enlarged, it allows the blood proteins to pass from the capillaries into the tissues between the cells. This causes an imbalance in mineral and symptoms of disease increase.
Stress causes the organs to tighten up and prevent the natural process of digestion, assimilation and elimination.
