The natural healing process starts immediately you either start to practise healthy options, such as eating real food and/or when you stop doing unhealthy things to your body. These include eating unhealthy food, partaking in unhealthy pursuits, flooding your body with medication, etc.
Up to a point, your body can cope with whatever you throw at it. But there comes a time when you will start to feel the effects. At this point, you have three options – ignore it (leading to a deterioration), seek a quick fix (which often adds to the problem) or face up to the fact that what you are currently doing is not serving you.
The latter option is the hardest to realise, but the most curative in prognosis.
The challenges don’t end there. When you allow your body to do what it is designed to do, when you allow a natural healing process to occur, then you can experience what is often referred to as a healing crisis. In effect, you are letting the build up of toxins, that are so detrimental to health, go.
This letting go can be unpleasant. The more severe your health problem, the stronger the effects can be. Some of the common symptoms of a healing crisis include:
- lower energy
- discharges – such as bile, mucus, phlegm, sinus, vaginal
- skin eruptions – such as boils, rashes
- coated tongue
- increased body odour
- more frequent bowel movements
- increased sleepiness
- increased symptoms of current ailment
These symptoms are temporary, lasting from around a few days to a week for an averagely healthy person, to 3 – 4 weeks for a very toxic person. If they are too strong to carry out your daily routine, if they cause you distress or last longer than is comfortable, then you should seek the advice of someone who is familiar with this process. A homeopath can help to lessen the crisis without interring with it.
It’s worth remembering that a body will only enter into a healing crisis if it knows it can handle it. Your body is intelligent. It won’t embark on anything that it can’t see through. All you have to do is to be in a space (both mentally and physically) to allow this to happen. Support is often vital.
The natural healing process is essentially a detoxification. You know that you will feel so much better when you come out of it. But it doesn’t have to be unpleasant.
Massage, especially lymphatic massage, coffee enemas and good homeopathy prescribing can all lessen the pain of the process dramatically. The latter has the potential to eliminate it altogether.
Many practitioners, including GPs, are unfamiliar with the healing process and will prescribe medication to help you. These will worsen your condition, increasing your toxin load, which is likely to make you feel worse in the coming months.
The best way to avoid the pain of a natural healing process is to change over to a healthy diet in small chunks. Change one thing at a time. This way tends to have longer lasting results, too.
