If you’ve recently begun a natural healing process and notice that your symptoms are getting worse instead of better, don’t give up just yet !. You may be going through a healing crisis (officially called the Herxheimer Reaction), which is a natural part of the detox process. A healing crisis commonly occurs when your body is getting rid of toxins and other waste products. Many cleanses and other natural healing processes cause your body to cycle out old tissue, bacteria, and toxins. This is a positive process that will leave your body healthier and cleaner. However, as the process begins, the toxins being released can aggravate your body. A healing crisis occurs when your body is releasing more toxins than your liver, kidneys, and intestines can process. These can cause negative symptoms or a temporary worsening of the condition you’re suffering from.
