Detox & Healing Reactions

In our modern culture, we are often taught to believe that if we are feeling bad, it's a bad sign, and if we are feeling better (or our symptoms are being suppressed), it's a good sign, yet these notions are often inaccurate. The healing reactions that occur when a person is truly getting well can be very confusing and disheartening, often appearing to be a worsening of health or symptoms, a recurrence of past conditions, or the appearance of sensitivities/allergies to foods and supplements. When we consider that most symptoms are actually either energy moving or energy that is “stuck” in a kind of feedback loop, this can drastically change the way we view our bodies and how we care for them.

Unfortunately, most bodies in today’s environment grow up unable to completely heal themselves from injury, illness and disease, given their continual exposure to toxins and lack of proper fuel. Also, we are often conditioned to “lock down” and suppress energetic detoxification, which makes matters worse and helps contribute to the phenomenon of Quantum Accumulation Syndrome. Without the appropriate emotional or physical conditions necessary for a complete recovery, illnesses, stress and trauma are only partially healed, while the energetic elements of these experiences which can not be properly processed and released are literally sequestered internally to areas where they will not pose an immediate threat to functionality. Over time, however, these residues can affect us both physically and emotionally. Some people talk about "cellular memory," which directly relates to this phenomenon. The unreleased energies of past illnesses and other traumatic incidences are stored at the cellular level, and while it isn't yet recognized or understood by Western medicine, I've found it to be a very real and fascinating phenomenon.

There are many theories on how to clear cellular memory and release the energy of past trauma and disease, but I’ve learned from the resourced research that personalized nutritional protocols appear to be an optimal foundation for this process. The mechanism is very complex and it’s best to let the body “lead the way” with its own innate intelligence; just as you don’t give a master painter a single color and then micromanage what they do—you give them the complete palette and say, ‘go ahead and do what you know how to do.’

Other modalities, like various forms of energy work or EFT, can be helpful for some people, but I've observed that removing any irritating foods and supporting the body with a personalized protocol for proper nutrition allows it to unwind and release the energy all on its own, when it is ready, without being forced, and in the right order (which oftentimes might appear to be quite random.) Human bodies can do amazing things, they just have to be given the right tools—and we have to know how to get out of the way and let them do their thing!

Over the past several years, I’ve studied many diet recommendations and theories, combing through them with the resourcing technique I use for the session work. The verdict is clear—no single set of rules works for everyone, because every body and person are unique. When most people try to follow generalized guidelines, they often over-restrict and under-nourish themselves, which leads to less than desirable results and decreased vitality in the long run.

It's important to remember, when making the changes we cover during our work together, that there will likely be times of feeling worse as the body gets strong enough to clear the cellular memory of your past. It's not uncommon for people to feel fatigue, flu-like symptoms, sometimes rashes, sore throats, nausea, digestive issues or headaches. A frequent set of symptoms I have personally experienced is intense itching and sensations of “pins and needles.” There may be times when old symptoms, long gone, spontaneously show up again for a little while. Emotional volatility and lability are also very common, as are feelings of depression, anger, and anxiety. You may even have vivid flashbacks of events that happened years ago, as your physical and etheric bodies re-calibrate themselves and detoxify. Staying well-hydrated and allowing yourself additional rest is important during a healing reaction. It's also important to let yourself feel the experiences and emotions completely, observing them as peacefully as possible and free from any judgements (this can definitely take some practice, in some cases.). Symptoms shouldn’t be suppressed, as this can interfere with the healing process and potentially force the energy being cleared back into the body. Reactions can be alarming and sometimes quite unpleasant, but they're also a very good sign, as they’re an indication that you're purging toxins of all kinds and that you’ll soon feel a lot better. Allergies can vanish, Millivolts go up, consciousness expands, well-being improves, and the likelihood of disease in the future minimizes. It’s worth the work!
