Healing Reaction?

As expected, my blood work came back today. My body is officially experiencing a "healing reaction", or "healing crisis" as toxins are beginning to escape. I will not go into full details, but I will share with you a few key readings.

You will hear it here first, I was wrong. They are actually testing the pH as part of the urinalyses. The nice thing about this is that I can test it at home using a simple litmus paper pH indicator. The bad thing about it, from what I understand is that it isn't terribly accurate. Testing too early in the morning will often result in a slightly more acidic reading. It would be a much better indicator or trend if I set a schedule for testing and do it on my own at home. (i.e. same time every friday morning) The level returned this time was slightly more acidic than my first reading. Could it be the time of day? Dr Cervantes believes this to be one sign of my body experiencing a reaction. As toxins are reintroduced back into my system, they are pushing my body towards a more acidic state.

The human body handles the release of toxins much like how it handles allergies. Many of the same side effects will occur. For example one sign of a body in crisis is the increase of mucus. The body automatically tries to coat the intestinal lining as a way to prevent damage from the toxins. The body will also prompt the immune system to release histamines and other chemicals it needs in order to counteract or get rid of foreign matter and toxins. My elevated eosinophils and basophils, which secrete these important histamines, indicate a body in crisis.

As these toxins are reintroduced into the bloodstream, the liver will once again be required to filter them out. For this reason, someone experiencing a healing reaction will show an increased release of liver enzymes. Don't worry, I doubt that it will reach the levels that I experienced while on Interleukin-2.

There are other key markers in the results that also show even more clearly that the process is starting to work "as advertised". I don't fully understand all the markers yet, but don't worry ... as this is a learning experience for all of us, I'll share more when I know more.

It is truly amazing how the simple, yet effective combination of a strict low-fat, low-salt, vegetarian diet and coffee enemas can make such a large impact in the body in such a short amount of time. I believe, given time, the Gerson Therapy will restore my body back to a healthy state.

"I believe, given time, the Gerson Therapy will restore my body back to a healthy state."

First and foremost, I want to thank you for taking the time and what I know has to be a challenging undertaking to share your journey for all to see. That is a beautiful, loving, selfless act.

I have been on a "Mr. Toad's Wild ride medically for far too long and I finally hit tilt & had awakening at same time. I am now in the process of trying to emplement the Gerson Therapy at home. Just trying to locate all the supplements is Olympic level challenging!

One thing I have only recently begun to truly grasp in a tangible way is the mental quicksand trap that get's a hold of people with life altering diseases and other serious medical challenges.

A friend shared with me recently something that has been right under my nose but I never saw it. If you think and speak of things in a future tense you will always be chasing something as that is what your energy is focused on, "on down the road".

You tell yourself, "I am well" and you adopt that mind set as nothing short of that is desirable or acceptable. You are the only one that can control your thoughts and energy no?

I can feel the difference the better and better I get at mastering my own mind. Meditation is a great tool to reclaim your body by focusing on every single aspect of what your healthy body feels like.

Hope this helps you on your journey.
