It is normal to suffer from detoxification reactions when we begin to heal ourselves. This is classically referred to as a healing crisis and occurs when the body is expelling toxins into the different systems of the body. The healing crisis is a normal process that people will often encounter on their path to getting well. It is also toxic emotions & trauma that will be released if that is what we need to do.
The medical term for healing crisis is the “Herxheimer Reaction.” This occurs when the cells release toxins into circulation but the elimination organs (skin, lungs, liver, kidneys, bladder & GI) are not able to eliminate them quickly enough. The toxins remain in circulation and can effect the brain stem region leading to nausea, poor coordination, headaches, fatigue, malaise, fever, cold symptoms, etc.
Another common cause of the healing crisis has to do with the dying off of certain pathogenic organisms in the body. These organisms can be Candida infections, viruses and bacteria. This releases stored endotoxins (within the microbes themselves) that circulate. The more pathogens in the body the more endotoxins that will be released into the bloodstream.
When we begin to detox and awaken our natural internal systems this detoxification will begin.
So if using hemp tea or other hemp products that contain the whole plant goodness we will begin to awaken our systems & those the toxins in our cells will begin to flood out.
It is a good thing. However I feel in order to move forward rather than go round in an endless circle of healing, we need to begin to educate ourselves on how to help our bodies get rid on these toxins once they start to release.
- Drink filtered water if possible every 15 minutes during a healing crisis. Add lemon to this for best effect.
- 2. Use lemon or apple cider vinegar.
- Use essential oils. These all have different terpenes in them which help our systems.
- Get plenty of sleep.
- Take some probiotics such as yoghurt.
- Eat chicken or veg broth & make sure to add garlic & onions which are anti microbials & reduce endotoxin inflammation.
- Activated charcoal.
- Diamatecous earth.
- Himalayan Salt
Accepting our systems need awakening & then accepting that this causes the toxins stored up for many years to be released is important to our health.
We do not need to keep dosing ourselves up with more & more health products. We need to use these products but also listen & care for our bodies as we take the cbd products etc.
Exercise will also cause toxins long stored in our cells to be released. Again this is a good thing but the knowledge that we need to use the lemon, the garlic, the probiotics, the charcoal or the diamatecous earth will really help.
Also we have a chakra system, we have our emotional body, our mental body, our physical body & our ethereal body.
reiki, massage & counselling all help us heal.
As the CBD products from the hemp unlock our inner selves we must be aware that is only the start. We must then heed what our inner voice & our bodies are telling us.
Ultimately being free within from all toxic matter is the end goal.
Please be aware there are many of us going through this detox. You can look on facebook. we have a group called CBD/Cannabinoids for holistic health.
