Why elimination of the symptom is NOT the same as elimination of the disease

The Immune System: The Body's Defense Department

We will soon see why these organs are so important in detoxification. Detoxification for the body may refer to the cleansing of the bowels, kidneys, lungs, the liver or the blood, since these are the organs involved in detoxification of chemicals and toxins from the body.

The liver acts as an in-line filter for the removal of foreign substances and wastes from the blood. The kidneys filter wastes from the blood into the urine, while the lungs remove volatile gases as we breathe. The healing process usually does not occur without repercussions. During the initial phase of healing, as your body begins to clean house, detoxify and your vital energy begins to repair and rebuild internal organs, you may experience headache, uneasiness, flu like symptoms and fatigue.

It is important that you adequately rest during this time. These symptoms will pass as your body begins to normalize to a new level of health. As you continue to improve, you may begin a process called retracing.

You may feel worse before you feel better. For example, if you used to get skin rashes, the rashes may reappear or get worse for a period of time as your body eliminates toxins through the skin. You may also experience an initial increase in urination, or you may feel more nervous.

In actuality, you are not getting worse, you are actually getting better. Eventually you will reach a plateau of better health. During the healing crisis, it is important to not suppress these temporary symptoms with drugs or the healing process may become interrupted.

The 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. The elimination process is often referred to as the "healing crisis. Expect ups and downs as it takes awhile to get good health back. In 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.

Symptoms of the healing crisis may at first be identical to the disease it is meant to heal. But there is an important difference: A cleansing, purifying process is underway and stored wastes are in a free-flowing state.

The body, mind, and spirit are no longer "locked. The 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 crisis so that they can heal their unfinished business. This arises in whatever order the body is capable of handling at that time. Physical reactions 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. Your 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. One 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. It's like peeling the layers off an onion.

Often the 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 comfortable. With a more serious condition, there may be many small crisis 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 against it.

The reversal process is another part of the healing crisis. It is necessary to revisit each step the body has been through that brought it to its current state of dis-ease. People learn from an early age that symptoms are bad and should be stopped or suppressed. They take all kinds of drugs to stop their bodies from eliminating catarrah and waste. This is very confusing to the body! Mucus production is the body's perfect mechanism for taking out the garbage! If that process is suppressed, the immune system is compromised and the next time it doesn't work quite so well.

The body has it's own memory and it remembers all the injuries and all the times it was suppressed. In the reversal process these memories are brought to light in reverse order from which they happened and people re-experience illnesses and traumas in a phenomenon known as retracing. The difference this time is that the symptoms come and go quickly and there is an underlying sense that the whole process is not threatening, that it is natural and health promoting.

The healthy changes people feel after a healing crises remain as long as a health supportive lifestyle is embraced, as long as one continues to honor the remarkable and extraordinary intelligence of the body. Give the body what it needs to constantly create strong new tissue and the reward will be wonderful health and vitality. Shirley's healing crisis experience: When I was 17, the doctor prescribed cortisone to suppress the symptoms of eczema.

Over the next few years, I suffered severe side effects from that drug. My overall health was going downhill fast. My immune system was blown out. I suffered numerous infections which didn't even respond to antibiotics. In my early thirties I began homeopathic treatments , changed my diet, and supported my immune system with nutritional supplements and a unique immune modulator supplement.

I experienced immediate improvement in my overall health - infections, depression, back pain and other symptoms cleared up - but my skin condition worsened dramatically. That was my healing crisis. Hering Hering's law of cure the healing occurs from the inside out, meaning that toxins are excreted through the skin.

This is especially true when the liver, kidneys and lungs have been impaired to some degree. Because of the huge amount of cortisone I took for 9 years, the healing crisis was severe and lengthy. But the results made it all worthwhile: Here's the detailed story of my journey into health. The Herxheimer Reaction occurs when the body is detoxifying too rapidly and toxins are being released faster than the body can eliminate them. When this occurs, one will suffer from headaches, nausea, vomiting, and malaise.

Even though this is but a short period of the health program, it can be severe and deter one from reaching their intended goals. Also, the person may not know what they are experiencing and think that they are regressing. If tIf the Herxheimer reaction occurs, cut back on your health detoxification program. Reduce the dose of herbs and follow the above outline to reduce the symptoms of toxin elimination.

The more toxins there are to eliminate, the sicker one is when they come out. Generally, one will feel better when all is over and health is restored again. Herxheimer reaction is also known as a healing crisis. There are symptoms during a healing crisis that may be confused with illness but the difference is that these symptoms are short in duration and move from one part of the body to another, from inside out and from top to bottom.

There is usually a lack of appetite and may be a fever. There is fear during illness, a feeling of being out of control as opposed to the prevailing feeling during a healing crisis that underneath all the symptomology everything is working just the way it should and everything is really OK. If I were asked which is the greatest misunderstanding and confusion in the field of nutrition, I would respond, "to properly understand and interpret the symptoms and changes that follow the beginnings of a better nutritional program - A healing crisis ".

Now, what happens when a person follows the rules and makes a decided improvement in the quality of food consumed? Remarkable things begin to happen to the body as well as the mind.

The amazing intelligence present in every cell of the body and the wisdom of the body in its operation immediately becomes manifest. The rule may be stated thus: When the quality of food coming into the body is of higher quality than the tissue that the body is made of, the body begins to discard the lower grade materials and tissues and makes room for the superior materials that make new and healthier tissue.

What are the symptoms or signs that become evident when we first begin to omit the lower grade food and instead introduce superior foods-those that are more alive, more natural than those we are accustomed to? When the use of toxic stimulants such as coffee, tea, chocolate or cocoa is suddenly stopped, headaches are common, and a letdown healing crisis occurs. This is due to the discard by the body, of toxins called caffeine and theobromine, which are removed from the tissues and transported through the blood stream during its many bodily rounds.

Before the toxins agents reach their final destination for elimination, these irritants register in our consciousness as pain-in other words, headache. Spices, salt and other ingredients have been added, and they tend to be more stimulating than less prepared and more natural foods. Animal food, such as meat, fowl, fish etc, is more stimulating than cheeses, nuts and vegetable proteins. Consequently the withdrawal of stimulation, which follows the abandonment of animal food produces a slower heart action, a resting phase that registers to the mind as relaxation or a decrease in energy.

This initial letdown healing crisis lasts about ten days or slightly longer, and is followed by an increase of strength, a feeling of diminishing stress and great well-being.

Now, let us return to the symptoms that occur in the process of regeneration. The person who starts a better diet, stays on it for three days to a week and then quits, will say, "Oh, I felt better on the old diet - the new one makes me feel weak". He failed because he did not give his body a chance to adjust and complete its first phase of action, recuperation. If he had waited a while longer, he would have begun to feel better than before he started.

During this initial phase lasting about ten days on the average, to several weeks in others , the vital energies that are usually in the periphery or external parts of the body, such as the muscles and skin, begin to move to the vital internal organs and start reconstruction. This shunting of much of the power to the internal region produces a feeling of less energy in the muscles, which the mind interprets as some weakness. Actually power is increased, but most of it is being used for rebuilding the more important organs, and less of it is available for muscular work.

Any weakness that is felt here is not a true weakness, but merely a redeployment of forces to the more important internal parts. Here it is important for the person to stop wasting energy, and rest and sleep more. This is a crucial phase, and if the person resorts to stimulants of any kind, he will abort and defeat the regeneration intent of the body.

It is important that he have patience and just wait it out and after awhile he will get an increasing strength that will exceed what he felt before he began the new program.

Success in recovery or improvement of health hinges upon the correct understanding of this point - realizing that the body is using its main energies in more important internal work and not wasting it in external work involving muscle movements.

Be wise - take it easy and relax. Just coast in your work and social obligations until you are out of the woods. As one continues on the improved diet and gradually raises the food quality, interesting symptoms begin to appear.

The body begins a process called "retracing". The cellular intelligence reasons something like this "Oh! Look at all those fine materials coming in. How wonderful - now we have a chance to get rid of this old garbage and build a beautiful new house. Let us get started immediately. Let us get this excess bile out of the liver and gall bladder and send it to the intestines for elimination.

Let us get this sludge moving out of the arteries, veins and capillaries. These smelly, gassy, brain-stupefying masses have been here too long- out with them! These arthritic deposits on the joints need cleaning up.

Let us get these irritating food preservatives such as aspirins, sleeping pills and drugs out of the way, along with these other masses of fat that have made life so burdensome for us for so long.

During the first phase of the healing crisis called catabolism , the accent is on elimination or breaking down of tissue. The body begins to clean house - in short, to remove the garbage deposited in all the tissues.

Wastes are discarded more rapidly and new tissue is made from the new food. This becomes evident as weight loss. This persists for a while then is followed by the second phase-stabilization. Here the weight remains more or less stable. During this phase, the amount of waste material being discarded daily is equal to the amount of tissue that is being formed and replaced by the newer, more vital food. This occurs after the excess of obstructing material in the tissues has been removed.

This stage persists for a while and is then followed by a third phase - a build up period called anabolism , wherein weight starts to go even though the diet is lower in calories than it was before.

At this point, much or more of the interfering wastes have been discarded. Returning to the symptoms that occur on a superior nutritional program - people who have had tendencies in the past to recurring skin rashes or eruptions will frequently tend to eliminate poisons and harmful drugs through the skin with new rashes and eruptions.

If they go to a doctor now who is not familiar with this aspect of nutrition, he will diagnose it as an allergy. They ask, "How come I am eating better than I ever did before and instead I'm getting worse?

It is throwing out more poisons more rapidly. However the great majority of people find their reactions tolerable and are encouraged to bear with them. With some, colds that have not appeared for a long time may occur, or even fevers. Understand that these actions are constructive, even though unpleasant at the moment. Do not try to stop these symptoms by the use of certain drugs.

These symptoms are part of a curing process; so don't try to cure a cure. These are NOT deficiency problems or allergic manifestations. The symptoms will vary according to the material being discarded, the condition of the organs involved in the elimination, and the amount of energy you have available. The more you rest and sleep when the symptoms are present, the milder they are and the more quickly they are terminated. Be happy you are having symptoms. Realized deeply that your body is becoming younger and healthier every day.

You are throwing off more and more wastes that would eventually have brought pain, disease, and following through to their successful termination, avoiding some of the worst diseases that would eventually have developed had you continued your careless eating habits. Do not expect to go on an ascending scale of quality.
