The Healing Crisis

Dear Patient:

Thank you for seeking treatment with us.  Before you go home to start your herbal regimen, there’s something you should know.
In the field of natural medicine, there’s a concept called the HEALING CRISIS.  What this means is that when you begin your herbal regimen, your symptoms may appear to be getting worse. Do not be alarmed, for this is normal and temporary. The symptoms are giving the indication that the herbs are doing their job in detoxifying the body.  Common symptoms of detoxification are looser bowels and darker urine.
Be patient. If the symptoms don’t subside within some time, please call and tell us how you’re feeling.
