What is a healing crisis?

The healing crisis has been expressed over the years by the following definition, which has gained widespread acceptance:

  • “All cure starts from within out, from the head down, and in reverse order as the symptoms have appeared.”
  • Putting it another way, a healing crisis will occur only when an individual is ready both physiologically and psychologically. The basic foundation for all healing is nutritional preparedness. A healing crisis will begin from within out, in reverse chronological order as to when and how the symptoms have appeared.

Frequently a person will start a new nutritional program, including the use of supplements. Within hours or days a burst of energy and well-being may be experienced. Shortly thereafter this may suddenly change, and past symptoms and pains may return. Unless one has been taught to expect such a “healing crisis,” he or she might become alarmed, and resort to the use of drugs to “make me feel better.” As indicated earlier, this suppresses the symptoms (which are body’s efforts to return to rid itself of toxins) and halts the healing process.

If one is fully informed concerning the possibility of the healing crisis, there are a number of things that can be done to make this time pass more comfortably and safely.

Remember, your body is infinitely intelligent, and, if given the proper tools (good nutrition, sufficient fresh air and water, adequate rest and sleep and a positive mental attitude), will manage to work itself through the healing crisis and “miraculously” heal itself.
