When we start consuming systemic medicines, the body and mind begin to show changes because the quality of nutrients coming along the body is of higher quality than the tissue of which the body is made.
Your body has only one material from which to make tissue – your food and the nutrients it contains. Modern food usually contains poor nutrient content, and often it is even poisonous with additives . The body begins to discard the lower grade materials to make room for the superior materials.
- The discarding of the materials can come:
- Through the bowel (stools) causing “diarrhea”
- Through the kidney (urine) causing more urination, burning micturition or “backache”
- Through the respiratory system causing sneezing, cough or “cold”
- Through the skin causing boils , acne and rashes
- Indigestion, heartburn, flatulance, bloating and burping usually start soon after you start taking superior nutrients. This happens because your body is not used to digesting these nutrients, which often indicates that you have been deficient of these nutrients for a long time. The body’s digestion usually improves in a week or two. Taking the nutrients with meals will help often help.
- Suppressed or inactive body functions will be stimulated to detoxify the body, sometimes inducing colds, diarrhea, fevers, swelling, acne, boils and vomiting. This is temporary and is part of the healing process.
- Headaches or heaviness in head, fatigue, irritability, sleepiness, heaviness in legs often happen when you start systemic medicine. It is because your body is becoming alkaline in nature which was highly acidic earlier. It is important at the time to take rest or short naps at frequent intervals.
- Moderate weight fluctuation often occurs (either weight loss or weight gain). If you continue the healthier lifestyle the weight will stabilize.
- Skin eruptions, warts, boils or acne. The skin is the largest eliminating organ, so the concept of toxins coming out through the skin is easily understood, even if it is hard to face.
- Aches, pains and arthritis will often get stirred up, even if you haven’t been suffering with it for years. This happens because uric acid and toxins aggravate these conditions as they are cleansed from the body.
- Fevers are not uncommon when dormant bacteria and viruses are being cleaned out. This sounds discouraging, but the healing crisis doesn’t last very long and the benefits of cleaning the body of these toxins and disease elements are vitally important.
These bacteria, viruses or toxins are going to show up sooner or later. You can either have a healthy body and handle them on your terms or they will come out when they overpower your weakened body.
It is better to go through several healing crises to help the body get used to the superior nutrients.
