  • The Healing Crisis   by  Zoebess     16 y     4,934       5 Messages Shown       Blog: The Master Cleanse Express

    The Master Cleanse will stimulate detoxing. Depending on your level of toxicity, the symptoms may range from mild to severe. This is a normal reaction to the work your body is doing to slough off the layers of old fecal debris.

    Below is an article which helps understand the healing crisis.


    The Healing Crisis

    AKA: The Cleansing Reaction, The Detox Reaction, and The Herxheimer Reaction

    What is it?

    Also known as the "Herxheimer Reaction", this reaction occurs when the body tries to eliminate toxins at a faster rate than they can be properly disposed of. The more toxic one's bodily systems are, the more severe the detoxification, or healing crisis. It is characterized by a temporary increase in symptoms during the cleansing or detox process which may be mild or severe. You may feel worse and therefore conclude that the treatment is not working. But these reactions are instead signs that the treatment is working and that your body is going through the process of cleaning itself of impurities, toxins and imbalances.

    Such reactions are temporary and can occur immediately -- or within several days, or even several weeks, of a detox. Symptoms usually pass within 1-3 days, but on rare occasions can last several weeks. If you are suffering from a major illness, the symptoms you experience during the healing crisis may be identical to the disease itself. Sometimes discomfort during the healing crisis is of greater intensity than when you were developing the chronic disease. This may explain why there may be a brief flare-up in one's condition. Often the crisis will come after you feel your very best. Most people feel somewhat ill during the first few days of a cleanse because it is at that point that your body dumps toxins into the blood stream for elimination. With a more serious condition there may be many small crises to go through before the final one is possible. In any case, a cleansing & purifying process is underway, and stored wastes are in a free-flowing state.


    The healing crisis is the result of every body-system, in concert, working to eliminate waste products through all elimination channels and set the stage for regeneration. The end result: old tissues are replaced with new. When any treatment or cleansing program causes a large scale die-off of bacteria, a significant amount of endotoxins (toxins within the bacteria itself) are released into the body. The more bacteria present, and the stronger their endotoxins, the stronger the cleansing reaction. When any treatment or detox causes the organs of the body (particularly the liver, which is a storehouse of drug and poison residues) to release their stored poisons and toxins, a cleansing reaction may occur. Any program, such as fasting, which causes a rapid breakdown of fat cells (which are a storehouse for toxins), can cause a healing crisis as toxins previously lodged in the fat cells are released into the blood stream.


    The healing crisis will usually bring about past conditions in whatever order the body is capable of handling at that time. People often forget the diseases or injuries they have had in the past, but are usually reminded during the crisis. There are a wide variety of reactions that may manifest during a healing crisis, the most common are:

    Increased joint or muscle pain
    Extreme fatigue and/or its opposite, restlessness
    Headache (believed to be caused by buildup of toxins in the blood)
    Aches, Pains
    Arthritic flair up
    Sinus congestion
    Fever (usually low grade) and/or chills
    Frequent urination and/or urinary tract discharges
    Drop in blood pressure
    Skin eruptions, including: boils, hives, and rashes.
    Cold or flu-like symptoms
    Strong emotions: anger, despair, sadness, fear, etc.
    Suppressed memories arise
    Mood swings
    New phobias develop

    Easing Your Way Through the Healing Crisis:

    Drink plenty of fresh water (especially water), the MC lemonade, and herbal teas to flush the body of toxins. Some professionals recommend distilled water as the best. Drink from 2 to 4 quarts (liters) per day. This will help flush the toxins out of your system and speed along the detoxification.

    If you are feeling fatigued, or sleepy, your body is talking to you, and telling you to rest. Be kind to yourself, and get the rest that you need.

    Symptoms frequently disappear immediately after a good bowel movement. If the symptoms are severe, you can use an enema.

    For other symptoms, meditation, EFT, acupuncture or a good massage might be helpful to speed up the healing process, and reduce the discomfort. And, on rare occasions, temporary cessation of the cleanse may be required.

    be happy, be well,

      Keep up the good work; I enjoy reading your blog. Today is also day six for me and a better day than yesterday. The sun is out and I feel good. My tongue is slowly starting to clear up; the lower third is clear. Yeah! I tried B&P and nearly gagged. My stomach didn't like it either. I had the powder, maybe the liquid would be better. Did you ever use P&B? I think I will use the rest of the clay in a bath. Ahhh Take Care. Aloha

        I think it is perhaps much better to use the clay already in suspension. Its called colloidal. Yerba Prima makes a good one...Great Plains I think it is called. I can recommend that. You may want to do some shakes after the cleanse. I could tell energetically it did do a good "mop-up" for me. The shake tastes much better if you use the colloidal and also hot water. Its like a warm liquid porridge and easily downed if warm...cold, yuck. The challenge is to keep hydrated so if you do not have the time to really focus on that, leave them alone, you will tend to get clogged up....

        Watch out with clay in the bath too so it does not run down the drain. It is best to let the clay sink to the bottom and run it out in the morning and then scoop out the residue. I would recommend putting it on and going out and hosing off or perhaps the foot baths which are fabulous. My friend brings clay back from Arkansas from his crystal digging forays, and I coat my feet in that, let it dry and then soak in hot water to further the detox.

        Thank you very much for your support!!
