Understanding the Healing Crisis
"All cures start from within and move out, from the head down and in reverse order as the symptoms have appeared." Herring's Law of Cure.
Dr. Bernard Jensen, The Science and Practice of Iridology, who is probably the world's leading iridologist quotes from the above statement to explain to people how, the body heals. He understands this axiom probably better than any other living person. Why?? Because of his extensive experience gained from analyzing thousands of irises of patients before and after they embarked upon a natural diet. For example, if he saw through the iris that the patient needed organic sodium, he would prescribe a food rich in it, and then he could observe weeks or months later when the healing lines began to appear in the iris. No other type of doctor, treating with any other type medicine or drug can observe through the window of the eye (or any other way) and know whether or not what he has prescribed works . . . or even what effect it has upon the body. (One exception might be kinesiology)
First, we must understand that drugs suppress symptoms and that natural herbs or food (wheatgrass) remove them. For instance, if someone had a sinus infection and took a drug, the drug would dry up the mucus in the sinus cavities-allowing the person to breathe. Whereas, if they took wheatgrass, it would so vitalize the body that it would eliminate the mucus. Basically, the body heals itself anyway, regardless of whether or not a drug has been administered. Actually taking the drug slows down the healing process and at the same time adds toxins to the body. Living foods were designed by the Creator as were living bodies--one for the other. Living foods have theorized to transfer plant energy into living bodies. Dead (cooked) food cannot. Healing with living food, wheatgrass takes time. First the tissues must be detoxified and then changed to healthy tissue. When old diseased tissue is replaced with healthy new tissue, the healing crisis occurs.
When the body is going through a healing crisis, it is sometimes difficult to distinguish from a disease process. Usually, the manifestations are similar; however, the healing crisis is a result of the body becoming very healthy and vital as a result of diet.
Sometimes if a person is in a chronic state and has gone through many disease processes in life, he must go through these disease processes in reverse order that they happened. Sometimes the healing crisis is just as intense as the original disease, but it usually lasts only about 3 days.
If one has changed his/her diet and is in the process of detoxification, he/she can expect a healing crisis usually within about 3 months from the time he/she starts. (The grass juices speed the process.)
It takes energy for the body to heal itself. We receive energy and life force from the foods God has provided---if we do not alter the food or kill it by heating it above 110 degrees.
Symptoms can be covered up or they can be cured. It is our choice. How do we want it?
