Side Effects During Detox – The Healing Crisis and Herxheimer Effect


Healing Crisis

Feeling Worse During Detox? You’re Not Alone!

When my first samples of TerraMin 2 in 1 Mineral Supplement arrived, I was optimistically leery about eating dirt for better health. However, I found myself remarkably energized shortly after taking it each day – for about six days, that is.

A low-grade fever and lethargy replaced that optimistic enthusiasm, and gradually I began to experience flu-like symptoms. I felt so drained and unwell that I took a few days off – and I work from home!

Becoming concerned, I discontinued the clay and consulted a physician, who really couldn’t pinpoint any cause for my ill feelings, only a questionable guess of a bacterial infection. Before heading to the pharmacy to fill the prescription for the “mysterious illness,” I went home and contacted my IonMin distributor who provided a few article links about The Herxheimer Reaction aka The Detox Reaction or The Healing Crisis.

How The Healing Crisis and Side Effects During Detox Let You Know It’s Working

Experiencing side effects during a natural detox process is actually a sign that the cleansing is removing toxins and imbalances from the body. Essentially, every organ and internal system is dumping out stored wastes into the bloodstream for elimination and preparing for new cell generation.

The Herxheimer Reaction may affect you within a few days, weeks, or the symptoms may come and go throughout the detox process. In fact, some symptoms may appear exacerbated to the point of seeming worse for a while. Liver detoxification and the bloodstream are two primary causes of bad side effects during detox, because these are the storehouses for poisons and waste within the body.

As the detox process works, large-scale bacteria die off, and massive concentrations of endotoxins are released. These endotoxins represent the actual toxicity within the bacteria. The more endotoxins that are present in the system, the stronger your cleansing reaction will be.


Some Common Symptoms During Detox & Solutions for Relief

Some of the most widely reported symptoms of an effective detox are:

  • Fatigue/Restlessness
  • Diarrhea/Frequent UrinationDetox
  • Nausea/Vomiting
  • Aches, Pains, Arthritic Flair Ups
  • Fever
  • Mood Swings
  • Anxiety
  • Sinus Congestion
  • Cold/Flu-like Symptoms
  • Skin Eruptions-Rashes, Acne, Hive, Etc.


Remember, this is a short list of symptoms, and everyone’s will vary depending on any specific illnesses, diseases, and the level of toxicity that your body harbors. However, it is wise to consult with a physician and seek medical advice about any symptom s that persist or are extremely bothersome. Be sure to let them know you particular detox regimen in case that plays a role.


Relief for Detox Symptoms

One of the surefire ways to get some relief from detox symptoms is to reduce the dosing of any supplements that you are taking, whether it be calcium montmorillonite clay or another form of organic detox cleansing. It is advisable to consider beginning your detox again slowly with a half dose per day for a few days, and then gradually increasing the dosage up to the fully recommended amount.

Drink lots of distilled water – 2 to 4 quarts per day will help flush your body from toxins.

Get some rest if you are feeling tired. Listen to your body as it tells you to treat it kindly

Meditation, a massage, or acupuncture is often useful to relieve symptoms during detox.

Consider an all natural mineral supplement such as TerraMin for your detox. You’ll get all the nutrients you need, can even detox and lose weight, and experience a wide range of additional health benefits from bentonite clay in its purest form.
