If you are overweight, this programme will take you down to your normal weight; if you are underweight, it will bring you up to normal. The process of cleansing therefore can open a gate for healing crisis known also as detoxification effects such as hunger, tiredness, headaches, derma issues and altered metabolism. As your body begins to cleanse, you will probably experience periodic aches and pains in the areas where the cleaning action is most acute and the wastage is loading the elimination system; there are times when you will feel very, very rough! Rest assured and be comforted that the healing process is well underway, and the sooner such discomforts come the better, for this means that the toxins and poisons are being eliminated – and the faster the cleansing, the quicker the healing. You must understand that cleansing will not be instantaneous; do not expect the toxic accumulations of a lifetime to be miraculously flushed out of the tissues and organs in some colonic fashion. This will all take time, working with the body’s normal cyclic functions. You will have high days and low days, usually in cycles. These ‘cleansing sicknesses’ come in cycles of seven days, seven weeks, seven months, and seven years in most cases. As the toxic poisons break loose, and are dumped into the bloodstream so they can be eliminated, you will feel pretty rough; and quite frequently during a crisis, you may feel worse than you did before you ever started the programme.
