Every day various waste substances and toxins enter our bodies, which our body cannot fight alone. Day after day these harmful waste substances accumulate, clog the arteries, make it difficult for our organs to work, and we are beginning to feel worse, more tired and unfocused. Constipation, diarrhea, dark circles under the eyes, weight gain, bad breath and indigestion, we feel swollen, sick and incapable of enjoying life.
Detoxification of the body is the only way to prevent this scenario. This is the way to help the liver, kidneys, the lymphatic system, skin and blood to work at full speed and deal with toxins.
Regular detoxification cleanses the whole body by removing toxic substances from the colon, deposited waste, parasites and heavy metals from the colon, as well as from the liver, the kidneys and the blood.
In other words, detoxification helps the body to naturally free itself from accumulated toxic substances that have a negative impact on the health and quality of life.
What is a healing crisis during detoxification?
The purification of the body is beneficial, but in order to thoroughly purify it, it takes time to do so. During this time, the body passes through the so-called healing crisis that occurs through various, not very pleasant, symptoms.
Why does the body go through the healing crisis during detoxification?
This happens most often because:
- Our cells already have the ability to release more accumulated toxins, pathogens, impurities, metabolic waste and other substances harmful to the organism and throw them out of the body;
- The “paths” through which the toxins pass in order to get out are clogged, and this causes stress for the body;
- In some cases, there may also be pathogenic microorganisms, bacteria or yeasts that were feeding on the toxins and are now dying because we have deprived them of their favorite food. Dying, these pathogens emit toxic substances into the blood, causing discomfort to the whole organism.
What are the most common symptoms of body cleansing and how to recognize them?
Among the most common symptoms of detoxification are headache, nausea, muscle pain, nasal congestion, sinusitis, sore throat, flu symptoms, constipation, diarrhea, rashes, etc. These unpleasant reactions disappear within a few weeks of their first appearance.
Each organism is different and the symptoms that may occur are different as well as the time they disappear, but there are some general reactions that all who go through the detoxification program experience and which can be recognized as detoxification symptoms.
Our body has the ability to deal with the harmful toxins that enter it. The liver, kidneys, skin, lymphatic system, blood, lungs work together to remove harmful substances. These systems are interconnected, and if everything is okay, there is no problem, but if one of the systems slows down or is obstructed, it affects all other systems and organs, resulting in appearance of unpleasant symptoms.
During the purification of the body problems with the digestive system can occur. You may get swelling or heartburn due to the fact that pathogenic microbes in the intestines begin to break down. Diarrhea or constipation attacks may occur as a result of gastrointestinal tract cleansing. These are completely normal reactions of the body and show that the cleansing works, the toxic load is reduced and the system begins to function properly.
When the immune system is overstimulated or hypersensitive, some allergies may develop during detoxification. Fortunately, these are not really allergic diseases, but another symptom of detoxification that will disappear as soon as the intestines are cleansed and protected, and the blood is not bombarded by foreign bodies.
The healing reactions or crises often resemble the problems you are trying to get rid of. So when you try to cleanse your immune system, the most common symptoms are cough, sore throat, swollen lymph glands, etc.
All these symptoms of detoxification are due to the amount of passive toxins that have been accumulated in the body.
The actions you take to remove them can cause nausea, vomiting, fatigue, insomnia, eczema, fungal infections, joint pains, acne, etc. The reactions are really unpleasant and should be monitored carefully but, except in very rare cases, they are due only to the body’s healing crises during the cleansing process.
It is essential to simply have patience and wait for the symptoms to pass because, once they have been overcome, you will understand that all this was worth it.
How to reduce the symptoms of body cleansing?
The key to reducing (or avoiding) the symptoms of detoxification is the use of some holistic methods that strengthen and help the body.
Here are some tips to minimize discomfort during a detoxification cycle:
- Maintaining bowel movement during this period is essential. The best ways to get rid of constipation is the regular intake of vitamin C or magnesium.
- Many people are unaware of the curative and detoxifying power of the enema with warm water, and this is an old and tested practice of colon cleansing. You can do the cleaning yourself at home or visit a specialist. Enema is not a very enjoyable activity (and feeling), but it will certainly ease the symptoms of the detoxification.
- Intake of activated carbon also helps. Activated carbon is known as a universal antidote that helps remove toxins, pathogens and waste from the body.
- The addition of sea salt, magnesium chloride, sodium bicarbonate or a combination of these ingredients in the bath water is a great way to remove toxins through the skin. Even if you do not take a bath, you can only dip your feet in the water in which these ingredients are dissolved and this will still relieve the symptoms.
- Brushing the whole body with a brush with natural hairs is a fantastic method of exfoliating the skin and stimulating and maintaining the functionality of the lymphatic system.
- Drink a lot of water. Yes, we know that drinking a lot of water has become something like a mantra in recent years which all specialists repeat, but it is absolutely true that the consumption of 1–1.5 L of water per day helps reduce many of the symptoms during detoxification.
