Fasting ~ the healing crisis


T H E • H E A L I N G • C R I S I S

What is the healing crisis?

This is the body's response to the detoxification stage during fasting. Some people report feeling even worse during the healing crisis than they did prior to starting their fast! The good news is that the symptoms experienced during the 'crisis' indicate that the body is undergoing a thorough and deep cleanse in Shaa Allah 💦

When you cleanse your body, the toxins dislodge and the bacteria die off and release endotoxins. When the toxins and waste are dislodged, the body begins to flush them into the bloodstream to be filtered and eliminated. This sudden circulation of toxins can temporarily impact your well-being and symptoms of illness (sweating, fever, discomfort, etc.) may occur.

How do I know if I'm experiencing a healing crisis?

You may experience all or some of the symptoms listed below:

• headaches
• diahorrea
• fatigue
• congestion
• nausea (even vomiting)
• low-grade fever
• anxiety
• mood-swings

How long will these symptoms last?

On average, the healing crisis lasts around 3 days, depending on the individual and their personal health state. As the toxins are extracted from the body, your energy may decrease - the more toxins, the more severe the symptoms may be. But there is peace in the knowledge that it won't last, and the cleanse has more benefits to outweigh the cons involved with the healing crisis overall.

How to manage during a healing crisis?

Keep hydrated (when you can!) with plenty of purified water and lemon juice, where possible. This will help to cleanse the body and flush out the toxins effectively in Shaa Allah 🍋
