Natural healing seeks to create health by eliminating the imbalance (or disease) that produced the symptoms of illness in the first place. This process begins with the premise that the body is designed to heal itself, given the appropriate support. Determining what is appropriate nutritional support requires active participation on your part to become aware of what your own "Inner Healer" is telling you. If you are ready to make that commitment to yourself, this is what you need to know.

Don't be alarmed if you feel worse after you start a wellness program than you did before. This is a good sign. This means that your body has built up enough strength inside to expel accumulated wastes. Although you may not feel well at that time, it is actually part of the healing process. It is important to understand what is happening during this process, what it means, and what you can do to assist this process.
Sometimes in the course of regaining vibrant health and optimum wellness using natural healing therapies, people go through a healing process. When stress and toxic wastes circulate inside your body, they damage your cells and tissues and weaken your body. This is recognized by medical science as a major cause of disease. Thus it is good for your health to get rid of these wastes.
The healing process is often accompanied by minor symptoms of cleansing such as aching, flu-like symptoms, headaches, runny nose, sore throat, diarrhea, constipation or other gastrointestinal symptoms, excess urination, irritableness, feeling tired, skin eruptions, gas, sweating, tearing, crying, bad breath, sleeping more, coughing, or emotions surfacing and releasing. Essentially these are all the different ways the body is working to overcome the condition and become well again. Please do not stop taking the supplements you may want to cut back at little if this process seems too overwhelming.
In cases where you have a chronic condition that your body has adapted to, you may have no symptoms until the new supplement is taken. You had no symptoms before because the chronic condition had weakened your body to the point where it did not have the ability to produce symptoms. Now your body is working to overcome this condition and become well again.
You can assist the healing process by drinking lots of pure water, using a high quality powdered fiber supplement and getting plenty of rest.
After a few hours, or a few days, the cleansing process will end. You will then experience a state of greater health.
