Healing Crisis or Herxheimer Reaction while Detoxing

Healing Crisis

Healing Crisis

Herxheimer Reaction is also called healing crisis, detox reaction or die-off 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 body 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.  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. If you have multiple Chemical Sensitivity, Lyme’s or other serious illness a Healing Crisis tells you to go slow and even avoid certain therapies. Always start a new supplement or therapy slowly to avoid severe healing crisis!

Healing crisis reactions are temporary. They can happen right away or they can occur within several days or several weeks of a detox.  If you are suffering from an illness the symptoms you experience during the healing crisis may seem as if your symptoms are getting worse. This may explain why there may be a sudden worsening in one’s condition.  Most people feel somewhat ill during the first few days of a cleanse or protocol because it is at that point that your body dumps toxins into the bloodstream for elimination.  With a more serious condition there may be many small crises to go through.  In any case, a cleansing & purifying process is underway, and stored wastes are in a free-flowing state.

It is also called a “die off” reaction because beside toxins, any healing of the body will probably include killing off parasites and candida. These are two conditions  that are thriving with almost any illness and live in every person.

There are lots of opinions on how to handle a Herxheimer Reaction. Some think it’s great because you are really detoxing, but others including myself, think that only a mild healing crisis is acceptable.  When too many toxins are released at once they may find another place to lodge in the body or damage the organs.  That being said, when I was very sick and constantly detoxing  with Multiple Chemical Sensitivity I did sleep a lot and had twitches, anxiety, aches and pains.  I still don’t know if it was the MCS or the healing crisis.  I was taking supplements, doing sauna and coffee enema almost every day. I got 95 % well, so my story turned out good.

The healing crisis is the result of the body working to eliminate waste products through all elimination channels and set the stage for healing. 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 bacteria and toxins are released into the body. Releasing chemicals, candida, viruses and parasites all will have to exit the system. The coffee enema, drinking lots of water, supplementing glutathione, and using bentonite clay (drink it or use in the bath) are the best ways to  avoid healing crisis in detox. Coffee enema increases the liver’s ability to detox and flushes wastes out of your body so that they no longer  make you ill.  If you have any type of illness related to toxicity (MCS, Cancer) I strongly recommend coffee enema. I made two videos explaining (posted below).

DETOXING TOO FAST CAN HURT YOU!  If you have moderate to severe MCS dumping too many toxins too fast into your bloodstream can make you sick!  As with any healing protocol that you are doing at home (that you read on the internet!), go slow and see how your body reacts.  Read, research, and listen to your body while following your instincts. We are all different and will heal differently.

Symptoms of Herxheimer Reaction/ Healing Crisis:

Diarrhea
Extreme fatigue and/or its opposite, restlessness
Cramps
Headache
Aches, Pains
Insomnia
Nausea
Sinus congestion
Fever and/or chills
Frequent urination and/or urinary tract discharges
Drop in blood pressure
Skin eruptions: boils, hives, and rashes.
Cold or flu-like symptoms
change in emotions
Drink plenty of clean water, juices, and herbal teas to flush the body of toxins.

Always ensure your health by having a thorough medical check up: don’t assume that if you have any of the above symptoms that you are in a healing crisis: you may not be in a healing process, you may have a medical health problem.  Being your own doctor can be tricky and it’s always good to work with a doctor you trust or if you have severe or prolonged symptoms, don’t hesitate to get help.

I am not a doctor and this is not “medical advice”.
