Healing Crisis

Cryptomonadales The Reversal Process and Healing Crisis

When the health level improves as the resulf of changing to a right way of living, all tissues and organs cooperate in strengthening the weaker tissues in  which  suppressed  materials have been stored.  The stored toxic materials begin to be activated, moistened, and liquefied again, as if the body was being reversed to a previous condition of illness or disease.  This is actually what happens in the reversal process.  Just as we have unintentionally lived in such a way as to direct our body toward disease, we can now intentionally work our way back toward good health.

As we develop new tissue in place of the old, we gradually improve our health.  When we reach a certain point in the reversal process, we become healthy enough and strong enough to trigger a healing crisis, which is nature’s way of cleansing and restoring the body.  When we reverse the process that brought on a disturbance or disease, we will eventually liquefy and eliminate the old toxic material and cattarh from the body, and the conditions that brought on the problem will be eliminated.  New tissue grow in place of the old. This is True Healing, and it is natue’s way because tissue is restored with full recovery of function and activity.

“Give me a healing crisis and I will cure any disease.” – Dr. Lindhlar (Champion of the healing crisis)-

Healing Crisis vs Disease Crisis

When we begin to eliminate the old material, we have reached what is called a “healing crisis”. This is the crowing reward of our efforts, a spontaneous and natural cleanisng.

Unlike a “disease crisis”, in which symptoms show that a toxic acid condition is developing in the body and the body is coping with the development of a disease, a healing crisis shows that old toxins are leaving, never to return if a person continues living right.  Yet, it resembles in every way a disease crisis, except that it lasts only a few days.  The onset of the healing crisis marks the return of problems from the past.

The main way to distinguish between a disease crisis and a healing crisis is that a healing crisis usually comes at a time when you have never felt better.  One day you are walking on “Cloud nine”, and the next you are flat on your back, feeling miserable.  This is usually a healing crisis.   It is difficult to accept the fact that a healing crisis comes right after a patient is feeling his best. Invariably a patient says, “I have never felt so well in my life.” This is the time you can usually expect the crisis and is the time when the crisis can do its best work.


It is difficult for the average person and for the average doctor to tell the difference between the healing crisis and a disease process,” explained Dr. Bernard Jenson

 Old Symptoms Returns 

There may be singly or in combination such discomforts as vomiting, diarrhea, fever, rash, skin eruptions, or discharges from any or all orifices of the body for about three days.  Then it is gone, and the body is much cleaner.  You will feel wonderful.  This is nature’s way of cleansing and healing.

One crisis is not always enough for a complete ‘cure‘.  The person in a chronic state, who has gone through many disease processes in his life, must go through these disease processes again in the reverse order in which they occurred.

During the healing crisis, you should rest as much as possible, taking only broth, vegetable juice, or chlorophyll and water now and then. At this period, you also should take more fiber and food that assist bowel movement and toxin elimination.

In looking over the whole process, consider that disease is an eliminative activity of the body. If we believe that the body is consistently trying to remain well, we believe that even the process of disease is an eliminative process; and we should do little to interfere because the body is fighting for supremacy over the disease. It is well to know that even disease can be looked upon as a ‘cure’ by allowing it to run its course and by giving the body every opportunity to recover of its own accord.”
 Dr. Bernard Jenson, The Science and Practice of Iridology.

 Understanding Basic Healing Principles

Illness does not occur without cause.  Most if not all illnesses, result through a build-up of toxins. The body cells have a memory of past illnesses and retracing is the process of re-activating, and working through these illnesses. When a disease isn’t worked through properly at the time, an element of latency or repression occurs eventually leading to loss of vitality, a sub-standard state of health and eventually diseases of a more insidious nature.

Underlying causes of disease must be discovered and removed or treated before a person can recover completely from illness.

Symptoms express the body’s attempt to heal, but are not the cause of disease and therefore, should not be merely suppressed by treatment.  Physicians and surgeons palliate symptoms instead of removing the causes. The elimination of the symptom is not the same as elimination of the disease.

In allopathic medicine a symptom is usually thought of as the patient’s real disease and the goal is to hold back, decrease or eliminate that particular symptom. This is often done without addressing the underlying cause and does not promote or offer a cure.

The word “holistic” means “whole”. In providing holistic care, there are several factors to consider — lifestyle, dietary habits and emotions; these may all have a relationship with the symptoms you observe.  Our body knows how we got sick, why we got sick and how to heal itself. The reason why it sometimes is unable to do so is because of the stress that we put in its course. We need to examine our life style and habits.

Suppression of Symptoms

Suppressive treatments are those that eliminate symptoms without acknowledging the cause of the problem.

Much ill-health, particularly in adults, is merely a manifestation of the condition known as auto-toxemia or self-poisoning.  From the moment of birth, food is taken into the alimentary canal with never a respite for the overworked organs of digestion. Debris begins to accumulate faster than it can be eliminated.

Unwanted nutriment is stored away in reserve as fat, but sooner or later a radical cleansing effort has to be made by the body to rid itself of accumulations of waste products, and many so-called “dis-eases” are simply the outward and visible signs of this inward cleansing process.

Unwanted organic matter which incidentally provides a favourable soil for infection by micro-organisms, is removed in various ways and all the organs of elimination are used — bowels, kidneys, lungs and skin. Catarrh and eczema are examples of such an operation involving elimination through the mucous membranes and skin.

 Suppression leads to degeneration

“No attempt should be made to SUPPRESS such symptoms. To do so only invites trouble of a more serious kind in the future.  In fact the suppression of symptoms is responsible for some of the degenerative diseases in later life e.g., rheumatism. Rather, we should assist the body in its periodical spring-cleaning and this can best be done by a period of rest and warmth and the lightest of diets. In fact, abstention from solid foods for a short period can make an important contribution.

Numbers of people are unknowingly suffering from the cumulative effects of SUPPRESSIVE treatments to which they have been subjected in the past – medical drug poisoning – and, in such cases, response to biochemic treatment may be slow.  If little or no benefit is apparent after a reasonable period of treatment with the remedy indicated by the symptoms, the system can be rendered more responsive by a short anti-toxic course.” — The Biochemic Handbook

Hering’s Law of Cure – Recovery Symptoms

Dr. Constantine Hering, a German Homeopath who emigrated to the U.S. in the 1830’s, observed that healing occurs in a consistent pattern. He described this pattern in the form of three basic laws which homeopaths can use to recognize that healing is occurring. This pattern, known now as Hering’s Law, has been recognized by acupuncturists for hundreds of years and is also used by practitioners of herbalism and other healing disciplines.

Dr. Constantine Hering’s law of cure states, “All cure starts from the head down, from the inside out, and in reverse order as symptoms have first appeared.”

It means healing progresses from the upper to the lower parts of the body. For instance, a person is considered to be on the mend if the arthritic pain in his neck has decreased although he now has pain in his finger joints.

Healing progresses from the deepest part of the organism – the mental and emotional levels and the vital organs – to the external parts, such as skin and extremities.

As healing progresses, symptoms appear and disappear in the reverse of their original chronological order of appearance. Homeopaths have consistently observed that their patients re-experience symptoms from past conditions.

As the symptoms change in accordance with Hering’s Law, it is common for individual symptoms to become worse than they had been before treatment. If healing is truly in progress, the patient feels stronger and generally better in spite of the aggravation. Before long, the symptoms of the aggravation pass, and leave the person healthier on all levels.

Important Crisis Note

A crisis comes usually after you feel your best. It is the will of nature. No doctor or patient or food can bring on a crisis. It comes when your body is ready. It does it in its own time. It goes through slow or fast according to the patient’s constitution, nervous system, and what you have earned so that it will come on. You earn this crisis through hard work. Its comes through a sacrifice, giving up bad habits, taking a new path, cleaning up the act that you’ve been in when your life wasn’t working with the laws of nature. A crisis can come harsh, small, violently, or softly, according to what is possible for the body to control and take care of. Some crisis come in backaches, skin rasheh, koijt pains, or teeth can become on edge and diarrhea can develop. I have seen people with all of these symptoms; however, they do not usually come at the same moment but move from one part of the body to another or wherever the body is placing its energy for cleansing, rejuvenating, and getting rid of the old tissue and acids that probably have accumulated over a period of years.
