The Healing Crisis…
Balanced energy field

You’ve decided to clean up your act. You’re eating more nutritiously, exercising regularly, and getting adequate sleep. Congratulations! You’ve set the stage for a healing crisis! The wholesome support you are giving your body will pay off in the long run, but chances are good that you will experience a healing crisis before you begin to reap all the benefits of your new regimen.

No doctor, patient, or food can bring on a healing crisis. When the body is ready, nature will take over to cleanse and release the bound energy that has been the obstacle to healing.

A healing crisis can move through a body slowly or rapidly depending on a person’s constitution, nervous system and what they have earned. One earns crisis through hard work. It is the result of sacrifice—giving up bad habits and choosing to be more in sync with nature.

Each person’s healing crisis is unique. The experience can range from harsh to gentle according to what is possible and appropriate for a specific body. Some crises come in the form of backaches, skin rashes, car accidents, joint pains, diarrhea, or dental problems. Some people experience all of these symptoms but usually not simultaneously. A healing crisis may move from one part of the body to another, or it may localize in an area the body has targeted for cleansing and rejuvenation. The healing crisis allows the body to rid itself of old tissue and acids that have accumulated over a period of years or even decades.

The exchange of old tissue for new happens only when new tissue is radiating its vitality. The old tissue has exhausted itself and the new, built from life-giving foods and health-building processes, has grown stronger than the old, abused tissue. The tissue built from poor food and destructive living habits will eventually be overpowered by the tissue created from natural foods and life-affirming habits.

A healing crisis is actually a blessing—an accelerated opportunity to move toward wholeness, to honor the body's intrinsic, self-healing power, and to allow those potent powers to dominate.
