# 37 Herxheimer Effect Is What! Updated 4/15/2010

Print Friendly

So you feel worse than before, after starting on a new regime of products to improve or correct a health condition!
Well, if you tested the product out for any allergic reactions and none showed, be glad.
Often , a person will quit the product when they feel worse, instead of continuing.
This can be a thing called “Herxheimer Effect or Healing Crisis”.
How best to describe the Herxheimer / Healing crisis.
Well. one is generally aware of how they are feeling, when they started using a product, that is the reference point for that individual. Not how some one else is reacting to the healing crises. Not arguing here, but stressing that when some thing unusual crops up when using any product to improve health, and a NEW kind of hurt, ache, or pattern shows up , that could be the bodies response of too much to fast.
I’ve had to back off a bit with some things being tried.

Have noticed that if the bowels are working well, that the so called healing crises is mostly non-existent.

Since I started the Virgin Coconut Oil (VCO), nothing unusual came up, not so with a few others that are also using the VCO.
Have heard ” hurts my stomach, just don’t feel well, stayed awake all night, slept like a log, feel hot all over my body, feel stiff in the joints, am extremely tired, broke out in pimples.”
None voiced a flu like feeling, although that can be one of many ways that can show up.

Nothing common between the complaints, so was it a healing crisis, really don’t know, but it WAS a change in THAT persons health awareness, so some thing IS happening.

None of the unusual health awareness conditions lasted beyond three days according to my follow-ups, but some thing like this could last for a few weeks or even longer. The way I look at it is, “if some thing has changed in my health awareness pattern while trying out a product, some type of healing process is taking place.”

Did read some place that if a healing process, how ever long ago, was NOT a complete healing at that time, and if the taking of some product IS capable of healing that uncompleted process, the symptoms associated with that prior incomplete healing will now take place. So, a slew of new symptoms show. Stay with it, monitor the process, closely, normally it passes away, given a little time. If that is the Herxheimer effect, so be it.
I feel that there is no one set of symptoms that can be called the “Herxheimer Effect” .
Check it out.
Right or wrong , only time will tell.

    Herximer is causing me some discomfort; modifed the dosage but then get the urge to full force again hoping it will pick up faster. Stuff is clearing up the age spots. Mind boggling.

    Make haste slowly.
    Ones body systems, functions from “FINE to GROSS”. It is an autonomic function. One will only experience the “reaction” of it. What you eat, drink, think, or take, automatically triggers some kind of action within ones body. Not SOME times, but EVERY Time. So either stop for awhile or adjust what you’re doing. Reactions of any kind, can mean that a HEALING of some sort,is taking place. There is no magical formula. Thats why one needs to pay close attention to how ones body IS reacting to a given, and acting accordingly. I’m not a doctor,I dont pretend to be one. But I can monitor my health , based on my personal experiences, better than any other person. Naturally, if things got out of hand , I would seek a professional.

  • Hello Laura,
    Ah, that gentle loving hug is true unrecognized healing power.
    Thank you for stopping in, commenting and the hugs.

  • Hello Talker,

    Talker, you mention the ‘it gets darker before the dawn’ in symptoms that may actually be leading into a possible healing and I agree. It’s an attention getter alright. :-) So can we activate or delay our healing if we sense any discomfort rising or fear based experience rising. Could that be the source of where the message is really coming from? A hidden seed of discomfort, dis-ease?

    I find it interesting that in paying attention to your body’s experiencing reactions, this can lead into one’s attention becoming aware of thoughts that are following in the experiencing of a reaction, and may lead one into observing how you are responding to the reactions, and what you tend to do with your reactions, do I give my attention to it or tend to ignore it by putting it off and pushing it under or ‘out of sight’ …

    You are most a most interesting one Talker.

    In the Spirit of Love Energy,

    Blessings, Be Well,

    Hello Talker,

    Talker, you mention the ‘it gets darker before the dawn’ in symptoms that may actually be leading into a possible healing and I agree. It’s an attention getter alright. :-)

    (Talker) Sensing discomfort is a warning bell from ones body. Paying attention is key to properly taking further action. If one is on a healing protocol when the alarm bell sounds, it only means ‘slack’ off a little if the discomfort is troublesome. If the alarm bell sounds go off for no apparent reason, means one better take a look at what needs to be done. To allow fear in, is detrimental, as fear will generally add to ones difficulty. Depending on how severe the discomfort is, for some, they better seek a medical professional. For others, they would, depending upon prior experiences, start some type of personal healing protocols, of which there are many. In most situations though, and with many variables of course, the less one interferes with the bodies own healing intelligence the better off one is.
    Of course I’m not a doctor, but common-sense with all things of this nature is a good thing to apply.

    …………………………………………

    I find it interesting that in paying attention to your body’s experiencing reactions, this can lead into one’s attention becoming aware of thoughts that are following in the experiencing of a reaction, and may lead one into observing how you are responding to the reactions, and what you tend to do with your reactions, do I give my attention to it or tend to ignore it by putting it off and pushing it under or ‘out of sight’ …

    (Talker) By all means, pay attention to the bodies reactions regardless if ill or not. The fact that ones body is talking to you, one better at least respect it enough to listen or pay the resulting consequences. One can run, but you can not hide. Meaning that if you ignore the bodies signals, any number of situations will unfold.
    One situation can be like a snowball rolling down a hill. Getting bigger and bigger as a problem, the longer it is ignored. Resulting in a nasty health condition or even kicking the bucket and passing away. There is no such thing as ‘pushing it under or ‘out of sight’, in real life. It only gets hidden from ones immediate awareness. But whatever that ‘hidden awareness’ is, it will always be at work. How! Ones body and mind are amazing instruments of tremendous intelligence. Mind will keep looking for a place to toss in the negative ‘hidden’ crap and apply it to new hurts, compounding any future simple hurts. That translates into an emotional and physical discomfort, making it more difficult to heal, if not approached with a mental and physical perspective.
    So awareness of a reaction is a must, but needs to be with a ‘no fear’emotion.
    Much more could be said, but believe you get the basics of it, for healing purposes.
