Frequently Asked Questions
1. What after effects may I experience after a treatment?
Often with or without the use of medications we suppress emotions and illness within the body, so following a holistic treatment which aims to balance and eliminate any undesirable symptoms or energy you may experience a variety of sensations. By re-balanceing the body it encourages the removal of toxins and negative feelings so you may find you:
- Are a little emotional due to the release of deep held feelings.
- Increased bowel movement as the digestive system has been simulated
- Skin breakout as the body rebalances with toxin removal
- Fatigue or more energy everyone reacts differently
- Relief of symptoms, aches and pains.
These after effects are commonly known as the "Healing Crisis" and are quite normal and often clear within 24 hours and are signs that the healing is working positively for you.
2. What should I do after a Holistic Treatment?
To help the effects of your treatment and aid the release of toxins from your system over the next 24 hours, it would be advisable to:
- Drink plenty of water to hydrate and help toxin flush.
- Eat light meals to allow the body to put its energy into healing.
- Drink herbal teas or fresh juice.
- Take time to relax and allow the body to focus on healing.
- Avoid alcohol, coffee and colas as these stimulants will reduce the effectiveness of the treatment.
