What is Healing Detoxification?
A healing detoxification may occur when an individual participates in a mind body therapy. The symptoms they may experience is called detoxification, and is actually a very helpful sign! It is a clue that the body is on the road to becoming healthier during the invisable changes that are taking place during healing sessions. This is often due to the body suddenly recognizing and eliminating toxins or emotions that otherwise would have still been sitting there. It is not life threatening and is a temporary situation.
Common triggers of healing detoxification:
Epsom salt baths, Coconut products – oil is antimicrobial,
Probiotics, Supplements for detoxification purposes,
Mind - Body Therapies such as yoga, tai chi, prayer, essential oils etc.
Symptoms vary from red cheeks, headaches, joint aches, flares of asthma, irritability, spaciness, tiredness, increase in emotions or vulnerability to digestive upset and eliminations. All are possible symptoms, there can be others and some clients experience none. *Also it is not uncommon to get emotional or experience physical symptoms before arriving to a session as the spirit can start it's preparation and often knows what the is needed before the client even realizes what is happening.
"The Spirit helps us in our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we ought, but that very Spirit intercedes with sighs too deep for words. And God, who searches the heart, knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God." Romans 8:26-27
How does One Prevent a Detoxification?
We can't always prevent this from happening (Why would we want to?), but we can minimize the affects by:
*Knowing and permitting this element of the healing process to happen. Releasing is much better than suppressing where it can remain and manifest - allow this to be a part of the process to wellness.
*Discussing with your practitioner any concerns or questions and providing feedback is very important so she can help you.
*Drinking plenty of water before and after treatments is a must! Epsom salt baths, extra rest, eating healthy and taking gentle care of oneself can help ease symptoms and faciliate the release and healing.
