What is a "Healing Crisis"?

On 1/21/07 6:56 PM Laura Lewars asked the following on the nspadvisor forum:

Q: Steven, could you just clarify exactly what a "healing crisis" is real quick for the newbies?

A: A healing crisis is very much like an acute bout of cold or flu. It sometimes happens when you switch from eating junk food and not taking care of yourself to eating better and feeding your body better.

Often there is a backlog of toxins stored in fat or other tissues that the body has been unable to process. As it gets better nutrition, it will start
to process this backlog of toxins and they will start to be released from tissues into the blood and lymph. From there, these toxins have to be
processed by the liver and removed from the body, generally by the colon or kidneys.

As long as this process is done gradually, you usually won't get a dramatic healing crisis. However, if one goes from eating a typical American diet to eating a bunch of raw fruits and vegetables, they will almost always experience a healing crisis within one to three days. This can also happen when one takes supplements that start to strengthen metabolic or glandular processes.

It does not happen when you take cleansing herbs. That is, if you take too much of a laxative and you start to get the "runs" that's not a healing
crisis. Cleansing herbs stimulate discharge, so you're just experiencing the effect of the herb and possibly taking too much.

On the other hand, if you start taking GreenZone and after a few days have a bout of nausea, that's probably a healing crisis.

A healing crisis happens when your liver, colon and kidneys can't handle the load of toxins being released. It may be due to a problem with phase two detoxification in the liver. As toxins are processed through phase one enzymes, they actually become temporarily more toxic. If your phase two system are sluggish and can't keep up, you'll feel sick.

When this happens, you may feel a little weak, dizzy, lightheaded or get a mild headache. You may also get symptoms of discharge sinus drainage, swollen lymph nodes, congestion in the chest, a little nausea or diarrhea, a skin eruption, or in rare cases vomiting.


These symptoms indicate a need to slow down a little on whatever you're doing and concentrate on helping the body flush what's irritating it. Make sure your eliminative channels are working properly. Drink plenty of fluids and take whatever herbs are necessary to help your body flush whatever is irritating it. If symptoms are intestinal, fiber is very helpful. For skin symptoms, drawing or sweat baths are useful. For respiratory congestion, decongestants and expectorants like ALJ may help. Lymphatic moving herbs are sometimes useful, too.

A healing crisis is usually short-lived. I rarely lasts more than 24-48 hours. If you experience symptoms that persist beyond this point, you may need to adjust the program you're taking because it's throwing
your system out of balance somehow.

I would not classify symptoms such as increased blood pressure, severe drops in blood pressure, rapid heart beat, heart palpitations, nervousness, anxiety, insomnia, depression, severe fatigue (past 24-48 hours) or edema as a healing crisis. These are signs the metabolism is out of balance and a person's program isn't working right.

I'm actually going to talk about this in my presentation for Leader's Conference.

10 Foods that Curb Your Cravings


By Glenn Mueller
eDiets Senior Writer
Updated: January 18, 2007


If you are still wasting time counting calories or carbohydrates, it is time to get the “whole” picture. The best way to slim down may just be to fill up… on the right kinds of whole foods that can help you curb those cravings for good.
“Switching from refined foods to whole foods will help you feel full on fewer calories,” says Ivy Ingram Larson. “Eating plenty of whole foods can also help you reduce hidden sources of empty calories.”

A whole foods diet, along with vitamin supplementation and exercise is part of the Fitter Firmer Faster (Health Communications Inc.) program developed by Ivy and her husband, Dr. Andrew Larson. The new book is a follow-up to the best-selling Gold Coast Cure, which was published in 2005.

“You’re not just going to lose weight,” Ivy says. “You will transform your body with our 3-pronged approach.”

And if anyone knows what a tremendous difference this healthy approach to weight loss can make, it is Ivy. More than eight years ago, this fitness instructor from Jupiter, Fla., was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. Her symptoms included bladder urgency, loss of strength and depression. When Ivy was desperate for a miracle, her neurologist put her on a special diet known as the Swank Diet.

“I knew a lot about exercise, but I really had a lot to learn about proper nutrition,” Ivy says. “I thought it didn’t matter what I ate as long as my weight was under control.”
Since the Swank Diet was bland and hard to follow, Ivy and her husband (then in medical school) put their heads together to make some modifications. The result was the healthy eating plan outlined in their books.

“I made a tremendous switch in the types of foods I eat,” Ivy says. “I don’t eat standard, processed foods anymore.”

Today, Ivy is a walking miracle. She has been able to return to vibrant health without taking any medication. The doting mother attributes her awe-inspiring success to the program outlined in the Fitter Firmer Faster book. But this remarkable 3-pronged approach isn’t only useful for fighting diseases, it can help you get a killer body, too.

According to Ivy, eating wholesome, balanced foods can actually cause a person’s appetite to self-regulate. Now, in this eDiets exclusive, she shares 10 foods that can help you curb your cravings.

Vegetables and Fruits
In spite of what you may have read in other diet books, Ivy says, all fruits and vegetables are helpful for weight loss. In fact, fruits and vegetables are at the top of the Fitter Firmer Faster food list. These superstar foods are rich in nutrients, low in calories and packed with fiber.

Whole Grains
Get the whole truth. Ivy says that whole grains retain the nutrient-rich germ, which is no longer present in refined grains or flour. This means that whole grains are a great source of antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and essential fats. Many studies have also linked whole-grain consumption to proper weight management.

Beans And Legumes
Bean there, done that. According to Ivy, beans and legumes provide the “maximum nutritional bang for the minimum calorie buck.” That’s because the foods in this group are packed with protein, fiber, iron, potassium and folate.

Potatoes
You say “poh-tah-to,” I say good for weight loss. Despite the bad rap potatoes have gotten in the press, Ivy says, they provide a “strong nutritional punch in a relatively low-calorie package.” Potatoes actually contain lots of healthy nutrients such as vitamin C, iron, B vitamins and phytonutrients. Just be careful what you top them with!

Fish
Swimmingly good. Since they are just packed with healthy omega-3 fats, eating fish actually promotes fat-burning in the body. Ivy says that the omega-3 fats found in most fish are also “the most potent anti-inflammatory substances available without a prescription.”

Soy
Oh say, can you soy? Eating soy can help you lose weight, because it is full of nutrients but low in calories. Soy foods such as edamame beans and soy beans also have the added advantage of being rich in fiber.

Flaxseeds and Flaxseed Oil
Just the flax, ma’am. Flax is actually a great source of omega-3 fat. According to Ivy, flaxseeds and flax oils are digested slowly, so they can keep you feeling full for hours. She also says that flaxseeds offer an added bonus for weight loss, since they are rich and filling in fiber.

Nuts and Seeds
Nuts about weight loss? Walnuts and pumpkin seeds are great sources of omega-3 fats. Other nuts such as almonds, cashews, chestnuts, hazelnuts, pecans, walnuts and peanuts are packed with monounsaturated fats.

Low-Fat Plain Yogurt
Ivy says that yogurts and other cultured dairy products like kefir contain more nutrition than milk. Yogurt is also a great source of calcium. Try YoBaby and Stonyfield Farm brands for less sugar and better wholesome taste.

Omega-3 Enriched Eggs
Eggs-actly what you need to lose weight. Eggs are full of healthy nutrients, such as B vitamins, zinc, vitamins A & D, iron and the antioxidant lutein.

Fitter Firmer Faster is really three books in one. The health-conscious couple has made their approach easier than ever to follow by adding a detailed exercise program and more than 50 delicious recipes.

Colloidal Silver, The Antibiotic Alternative

Information shared on www.nspforum.com

Silver, the once forgotten trace mineral, comes to light in modern-day health science. It is now available in colloidal form: submicroscopic silver particles held in suspension of pure deionized water by a tiny electric charge placed on each particle. We get silver along with all other minerals in our bodies through the food we eat. This comes directly from organic soil. This soil is rich in living organisms. These organisms break down the soil so plants are provided minerals in a form assimilable to the plant. Hence, we get silver naturally from the minerals present in organically grown plants. If we eat plants that have been grown on chemical fertilizers, as most plants are grown today, without living organisms in the soil to help provide nutrition to the plant, we do not get the quantity of vitamins and minerals which are available in organically grown foods. Thus, deficiencies develop. As the tissues age, or, if we cannot assimilate silver for some reason, we develop a silver deficiency and an impaired immune system that can lead to cancer and other diseases. Some suspect a silver deficiency is possibly one of the main reasons cancer exists and is increasing at such a rapid rate today. Dr. Robert Becker noticed a correlation between low silver levels and sickness. People who had low silver levels were frequently sick, had innumerable colds, flu, fevers and other sicknesses. He said he believed a silver deficiency was the reason for the improper functions of the immune system. He found that silver works on a wide range of bacteria, virus and fungi without any side effects or damage to the cells of the body, and can stimulate major growth of injured tissues.

What Does it Do?
Colloidal Silver is the most usable form of the most effective bacteria, germ, virus, and fungal killers known. It has been found to be both a remedy and a prevention for colds, flu, all infections, and all fermentation due to any bacteria, fungus or virus, especially staph and strep, which are often found in diseased conditions. It has been reported to rapidly subdue inflammation and promote faster healing. The body needs Colloidal Silver to fight disease-causing organisms and to aid healing. Taken daily, Colloidal Silver acts as a second line of defense to assist your own immune system by helping the body fight against and become less susceptible to the above mentioned harmful organisms. This results in more energy, vigor and vitality, relaxation, faster healing and reduced bodily toxins.

An artificial antibiotic kills, on an average, 6 different disease organisms. Colloidal Silver is known to kill over 650 disease organisms without any known harmful side effects or toxicity. One-celled life uses a different method of chemistry - oxygen metabolism. Single celled organisms use a common type of enzyme, or chemical lung, for their oxygen metabolism. Herein lies its weakness! The mere presence of Colloidal Silver near any virus, fungus or bacterium - any one celled, disease causing pathogen - will cripple the enzyme causing the pathogen to suffocate and die within six minutes without any effect on the surrounding tissue cells.

Silver Use Historically:
Silver has benefitted mankind's health for thousands of years. In ancient Greece and Rome, people used silver containers to keep liquids fresh. American settlers traveling across the west often put a silver dollar in milk to delay it's spoiling. Around the turn of the century, doctors prescribed silver nitrate for stomach ulcers. It has been a common practice to put a few drops of a silver solution in newborn babies' eyes to kill the bacterial that causes blindness. A silver compound known as silver sulfadiazine has been used in 70% of the burn centers in the U.S. It also helps stop the herpes virus specifically. The uses of Colloidal Silver go on and on in medical journals. Note: It is not the silver in dental fillings that is harmful, but the mercury which is a deadly poison.

Then, 60 to 70 years ago, the cost became prohibitive - about $100 per ounce in 1930 dollars. Colloidal Silver, as it is now produced, is a redevelopment of an earlier, more crude, product that was first used in the early 1900s. Now the quality is higher and the cost a fraction of that earlier product.

FDA, And Medical Studies:
According to the FDA, Colloidal Silver may continue to be marketed and used as it was originally intended. NSP's Colloidal Silver exceeds FDA recognized standards.

Colloidal Silver has been successfully tested at the UCLA Medical Labs where it killed every virus on which it was tested. Dr. Bjorn Nordstrom of Sweden's Karolinska Institute has used silver in his cancer cure methods for many years. He records that he has successfully cured patients who had been diagnosed by other doctors as terminally ill.

While studying regeneration of limbs, spinal cords and organs in the late 1970s, Robert O. Becker, M.D., author of The Body Electric, discovered that silver ions promote bone growth and kill surrounding bacteria. The March 1978 issue of Science Digest, in an article, "Our Mightiest Germ Fighter," reported: "Thanks to eye opening research, silver is emerging as a wonder of modern medicine. Resistant strains fail to develop. Moreover, silver is virtually non-toxic." The article ended with a quote by Dr. Harry Margraf, a biochemist and pioneering silver researcher who worked with the late Carl Moyer, M.D., chairman of Washington University's Department of Surgery in the 1970s: "Silver is the best all around germ fighter we have."

Directions For Use:
Important Notice: No claims are made as to any specific benefits resulting from the use of Colloidal Silver. Information conveyed herein is based on records and research for your information only and is not meant to imply that you will experience similar benefits or results. We are not licensed medical practitioners. We are prohibited by law from diagnosing or prescribing. Our information is for educational purposes only. No statement should be taken as medical advice.

Oral:
* 1 (one) teaspoon three times daily for 7 days, children 1/4 to 1/2 of adult dosage. After 7 days, 1/2 of dosage.
* Chronic cases: double to triple dosage.
* Optimum dose may require more or less Colloidal Silver depending on the state of the immune system. Kinesiology or muscle testing is an effective way to determine dosage. (Remember, this is a pure, safe mineral element and you cannot overdose. There are no known side effects).
* A few people may feel achy and sluggish on the 3rd or 4th day after they begin daily Colloidal Silver ingestion. This is called a healing crisis. When the body is sloughing off a great many entrenched toxins at one time, the elimination organs can become overloaded. A simple bowel cleanse and DRINKING LOTS OF EXTRA WATER will help the symptoms to not occur or to lessen rapidly. Your NSP distributor will be able to help you with a cleanse.

Externally:
Colloidal Silver can be applied directly to open wounds and sores to prevent or heal surface infections. A Q-tip makes a good applicator or you may put a few drops on a small band aid and wear over warts, cuts, abrasions or any open sore. Dab directly onto skin cancers, eczema, or such itchy areas, or for acne or mosquito bites.

Atomizer: For nose/lung problems, spray into nose while inhaling.
Eyes: Put a few drops in eyes each night before bed. It's safe in baby's eyes also.

Douches/Colonics: Add 2 (two) teaspoons to pure water.

To Purify Water: Add one ounce per gallon, shake well, wait six minutes and shake again; wait six minutes and drink.

Digestive Aid: Taken with meals, it helps improve digestion and eliminate fermentation.

Animals: Depending on the size of the animal, use a dropper to put Colloidal Silver down the throat or just put it in your pet's food or water.

Parasite Infections: Consume Colloidal Silver consistently for many days as the amount of Colloidal Silver must be sufficient enough to both infiltrate your body and organs and to also kill the parasites which are much larger than the microscopic silver particles.

Parasites reproduce by laying eggs; and these eggs have the same characteristics of the oxygen-metabolizing enzyme as the single celled organisms. These eggs cannot hatch when there is sufficient Colloidal Silver in the surrounding body tissues - they are killed within six minutes and then are eliminated by the immune system.

Plants: For all bacterial, fungal and viral attacks on plants. Simply spray diluted silver on the leaves and add to soil water. Mix 1 (one) tablespoon per quart.

Uses For Colloidal Silver:
Tests prove, due to the high absorption of silver in the small intestine, the friendly bacteria in the large intestines are not affected. To aid in this absorption we suggest that you do a cleanse of the bowel and a Marshmallow/Pepsin cleanse of the small intestine. Consult with your NSP distributer regarding these cleanses. All bacterial, viral and fungal organisms are killed within 6 minutes of contact. Higher silver content in the body causes faster and more frequent contact with these organisms. No disease causing organism can live in the presence of simple silver. The following is a partial list of the more than 650 conditions that Colloidal Silver has been successfully used against.
* Acne
* Dysentery
* Malaria
* Septicemia
* Arthritis
* Eczema
* Meningitis

Colloidal Silver is available from your Nature's Sunshine Products independent distributor. NSP's high quality Colloidal Silver stays in suspension; whereas, poor quality and higher concentrations separate and settle at the bottom.

* Whereas in many cases there is validity to claims of greater benefits from high concentration, it is not so with Colloidal Silver, for which "less is more."
* A 3-5 ppm (parts per million) concentration is effective without being wasteful.
* For optimal utilization and maximum benefit 5 ppm is used.
* NSP has the most uniform particle size
* NSP Colloidal Silver is free from heavy metal contamination: lead, cadmium, nickel and aluminum
* Colloidal Silver is tasteless and odorless.
* NSP's is safest on the market and is completely non-toxic.

Additional comments, questions and answers:

Q: I was told that Colloidal Silver can be toxic like mercury. Is it a heavy metal? What about using it with young children. -Nancy Burk
- - - - - - - - - -
Colloidal Silver should only be used in acute situations. In other words, when a bacterial infection is present. It is never meant to be used on a daily basis as a "preventive." As far as young children are concerned, my 15-month-old grandson took it for an ear infection both as drops in the ears and 1 ml. every 4 hours to clear up the infection along with liquid ALJ. Short term use is usually OK. -Ann Jones
- - - - - - - - - -
Colloidal Silver is one of my favorite products and yes it can be toxic if used in high doses over a long period of time. I have been using it on myself, my family and my clients with great results. The amounts you will find in the NSP formula is an extremely minute amount (mostly water). It does not take much silver to kill infection. When it is flu season is we use it at the onset of symptoms and usually don't get the flu. My daughter came home from school with pink eye, we cleared it up in 24 hrs with Colloidal Silver. Also good for ear infections and ulcers in the mouth. We find we use it mostly in the winter months. Don't be afraid of it. It is called colloidal which means suspended in water. -Laura
- - - - - - - - - -
Only with the use of excessive amounts like 1500 ppm on a daily basis. -Suzanne
- - - - - - - - - -
Q: I heard on the tv news that colloidal silver may turn the skin grey? the woman whose skin looked grey said that she once took a supplement containing "silver" and that is why her skin turned grey!, any comments on this (they showed a bottle of colloidal silver on the news report) -Veronica

Our news media is highly controlled by the government although it is difficult to convince people of that sometimes. It sounds to me like someone is trying their best to discourage people from curing their own disease using colloidal silver. -Terence

THAT is why we use Nature's Sunshine!!! There are two reasons for that happening -- #1 is IF the silver particles are too large. Not to the naked eye, but microscopically. And the other is takes VERY large amounts of silver for long periods of time. If I'm not mistaken - the large particles are the biggest cause. This often is the result of "homemade" Colloidal Silver and cheap brands. Play it safe -- use a safe brand, NSP. -Georgiana

I have used NSP Colloidal Silver for years as well as on my children and husband. We use it when it is appropriate. It is not in our daily regiment.
We have no grey color and I am able to fight eye infections, ear infections, thrush, colds and flu.

Placing 2 drops in the ears 2-3 times a day is very effective in stopping a flu or cold virus from multiplying and making us feel miserable, but it is best to be done as soon as the person starts to feel sick for faster recovery.

Don't fear NSP Colloidal Silver. -Lourdes Martinez
