The Healing Process
Let’s start by understanding that our supplements are natural supplements, with ingredients containing antioxidants, known for their healing and cleansing properties. Because of this, some people may experience a natural cleansing. Sometimes this natural cleansing involves eliminating toxins faster than the body is used to, so some people may temporarily experience some uncomfortable symptoms. This is known as the healing crisis (or Herxheimer reaction) and can include temporary symptoms, such as:
- Strong body odor
- Strong or unusual sweat
Most people do not experience any healing crisis, but if you do, simply decrease the number of daily capsules to 2 or even 1 a day. Begin increasing the number gradually to give your body time to catch up with the detoxification. Keep in mind that this is a natural process and it is nothing to be afraid of. The body is just releasing toxins at a higher rate than normal.
Please read all ingredients listed on the labels. If your body is very toxic, or if you suffer from adverse or allergic reactions to certain ingredients, consult your health practitioner. Do not take any supplements if you’re allergic to any ingredients listed.
Stay active and keep hydrated!
During this time when you may experience discomfort due to the body’s elimination of toxins, it is important to keep extra hydrated! Your body needs the extra water to flush out toxins and keep the bowels moving efficiently. As we explained before, some people experience this temporary healing crisis or Herxheimer reaction, because the level of toxins in the body is higher than the body is used to. The organs of elimination (like the kidneys, liver, bladder, skin) are trying to keep up with the extra work but are overwhelmed, so the body reacts temporarily with some of the symptoms listed above. Once the levels return to normal, people feel fine, and in some cases, people feel better than they did before. So, remember to pack that water bottle wherever you go and stay active, as sweating helps the body get rid of toxins.
