A healing crisis Part 1

In holistic healing practices, a healing crisis, also known as a Herxheimer reaction or detox reaction, is a temporary worsening of symptoms that occurs as the body begins to heal itself after starting a new therapy or treatment. Here’s what typically happens during a holistic healing crisis:

  1. Initial Symptoms Intensify: As the body starts to detoxify and rebalance, symptoms related to the underlying condition may temporarily worsen. For example, someone undergoing acupuncture for chronic pain might experience an increase in pain initially.

  2. Flu-Like Symptoms: It's common to experience symptoms similar to those of a mild flu during a healing crisis. This can include fatigue, headache, muscle aches, nausea, and possibly a low-grade fever.

  3. Emotional Releases: Emotional responses can also occur during a healing crisis. Past traumas or unresolved emotions may surface as part of the healing process, leading to emotional ups and downs.

  4. Temporary Discomfort: The body may eliminate toxins more rapidly than usual, leading to symptoms such as diarrhea, skin rashes, or increased urination. These are signs that the body is cleansing itself.

  5. Duration: A healing crisis typically lasts for a few hours to a few days, depending on the individual and the severity of their condition. It's important to note that while uncomfortable, it is usually transient and signifies a positive shift toward healing.
