"Just trying to determine what is detox specifically."
I would start with Herings law. In the healing process there can be times when the body needs to throw off toxicity, and when this happens it is quite common for patients to feel unwell. At these times they are vulnerable to the re-emergence of fears. Questions such as, "Is this really working?" and am I actually getting worse? can often rise up in their mind.
This is where Herings law can be useful ase it give a clear indication of whether your current symptoms are a sign of progression or regression.
"Healing takes place from the top to the bottom; from the inside to the outside; from the greater organs to the lesser organs; and in the reverse order in which the dis-ease appeared."
This means that symptoms will disappear from the head first and the lower parts of the body last, from within the body to the skin, breath and colon, from the more important organs to the less vital ones and in the reverse order in which they first appeared. The true healing process is the reverse of how the disease process manifested.
You can imagine the disease process to be like walking down a forever narrowing corridor. As you walk down this corridor, you accumulate more and nore toxicity. When the true healing process begins to take place it is like turning around, going back and revisiting those same levels of toxicity. Fortunately the journey back to health is usually much quicker than the journey towards disease.
More to be read at;
I recommend to read her book, as it put together several health systems, like the connection between potassium - magnesium. Calcium and sodium. All related to light, time of the day. An eye opener for me.
She also mention iodine, but for the Iodine
detox in particular I would use this forum or other Iodine
forums. Because most of us have been there, know the symptoms.
A few of us never had this detox phase; there can be several reasons for it. Like;
-It may happen on a deeper level (you take it out emotionally, mentally, on your neighbour, ex, forum members!:) spiritually..
-It may take years until the detox reach the skin or other outer parts of us. (took me a couple of years to get a bromide zit)
-It may not be noticed as a detox.
-It may be that one not need the detox right now.
(I have been through all the it`s above.)
