Healing Through Nature's Medicine, A Story of Hope
An Excerpt from book Healing Through Nature's Medicine, A Story of Hope, Page 36. As I tell all my clients, you will feel worse before you get better. Remember, pain/discomfort isn’t always bad. It can be a warning that something is wrong, and it can also be a sign that something good is happening as the muscles, organs and tissues of your body begin to activate again. Knowing what to expect about beneficial pain/discomfort will help you acknowledge and accept it. After all, it is for a good cause.
Reactivation/RetracingFor the body to deal with or heal a part of the body, it must bring it into priority or reactivate it. This means that the body is bringing to surface or focus a specific gland, organ, system or tissue of the body for cleansing/rebuilding activity that has been “on hold” from healing due to lack of nutrients, emotional stress, other priorities, etc.When a diseased or previously injured area of the body is brought back into focus or reactivated for healing, the symptoms that went with that specific stress will again manifest themselves to some degree. Remember that the symptoms the body manifested with the original disease or injury were an attempt at healing. This of course was somehow blocked with drugs or stress of some kind; thus, the symptoms and healing were put ‘on hold’. Now with reactivation, the same healing symptoms will once again manifest themselves.Look at it this way. It took a while for the nutritional deficiencies and accumulation of toxins that affected you to cause a degenerative condition in your body. It may take a while to undo the effects of all the painful and stressful things that you (knowingly and unconsciously) did to your body. This is rather like a reverse source of pain or discomfort and this time it is for a good cause.Remember, pain/discomfort isn’t always bad. It can be a warning that something is wrong, and it can also be a sign that something good is happening as the muscles, organs and tissues of your body begin to activate again. Knowing what to expect about beneficial pain/discomfort will help you acknowledge and accept it. After all, it is for a good cause.Does this discomfort affect everyone the same way?Not at all. Studies show that four out of five people will pass through the reactivation cycles toward good health with almost no discomfort. But if you are that one who doesn’t, then you can expect reactions that vary from mild to intense. Your reaction depends to some extent on whether the source of your distress or illness injury, toxicity or negative emotions. Probably it is some combination of all three. Your reaction also depends on the severity of your distress or sickness. The pains from the reactivation period are typically less frequent and intense than the original pains.But these are new aches and pains!That’s right. When the negative momentum is stopped, your body turns around and takes the road back to good health. One thing you can be sure of, that road is the same as the one you took toward distress and sickness, but the symptoms you experience can be entirely new because going back over a bump can be a different experience than hitting it the first time from the opposite direction. Because of the rerouting of your body’s energy as you improve, the symptoms may actually be as severe as they were before, but you can be sure they won’t last nearly as long and that as a result of this reactivating, you will be getting better.
