What is a Healing Crisis?
A healing crisis is an acute reaction, resulting from the activity of
nature's healing forces in overcoming chronic disease conditions. It is brought on when the body becomes
overcrowded with waste and irritating poisons.
Cells and tissues begin to throw off the waste and carry it from the
bloodstream to various eliminating organs.
These are the bowels, kidneys, lungs, skin, nasal passages, ears,
throat, and genital organs.
become congested and irritated, producing symptoms such as colds, boils, kidney
and bladder infections, headaches, open sores, diarrhea and fevers.
All crisis are a form of healing and
elimination. First the toxins are
removed and then the tissues are renewed.
These symptoms and the process of elimination are part of the cure and

What form will the crisis take?
