What Is A Herxheimer Reaction: FAQ

Also Referred To As A Healing Crisis Or Detoxification Reaction

It is essential for all embarking on a cleansing journey with nutrition, supplementation, infrared heat, sound, energy, light or frequency equipment to understand and recognize what a healing crisis is and to not be alarmed if it should occur. Firstly, the road that we travel on over the years is the same road that we travel back on as we regain our wellness. For this reason, many are surprised when the equipment or supplementation that are available through our studio are not helping them to feel better right away. In fact, some may often appear to be getting worse after embarking on such a journey. This is actually a good sign not a bad one. The body is merely re-experiencing the same symptoms, temporarily, as it now returns on the uphill road, throwing off and eliminating toxic waste, viruses, bacteria, yeast, parasites, etc. and also while trying to rebalance the light and energy of the body.

Your body is now experiencing a healing crisis not a sickness crisis. There is a world of difference between the two. Headaches, a sore throat, joint pain, brain fog, skin rashes, fever, mucus, bloating, foul smells, acne, swelling, swollen lymph nodes, cough, yeast infection, resurfacing pain from an old injury, flu like symptoms, tired or a lethargic feeling or other miscellaneous aches, pain, an off-food feeling (sometimes even nausea or vomiting) may be experienced during this toxic release and are normal. Your investment including time and effort is now beginning to pay off.

An organ usually takes 4 to 6 months to detoxify and rebuild itself to the point where it will function properly again. However, depending on the severity of your current condition(s), the organ(s) or energy/light body may require several sessions for every one year that the body has been out of balance. Chronic conditions may take longer to clear and is entirely based on the individual’s tolerance to receive these healing frequencies of light.

Those who are patient and persevere to the end are the ones who will see results. Getting well again is a commitment that only you can commit to in order to make it happen.

It is important to get plenty of rest after your  sessions, to avoid any rigorous activities, get light exercise, to drink plenty of water, take the vitamin C that is provided or to even purchase a box of your own from the studio for an additional $50 for a 30-pack box. You may also want to consider purchasing a bottle of liquid zeolites at $65 per bottle to help continue your detox at home and in between your studio sessions, however this is not mandatory.

Also, if you purchase multiple studio sessions and begin to sweat, it is important to replenish the body with extra electrolytes and minerals. Our Cannabis Sativa Hemp Seed Oil $40, and our Fulvic/Humic Acid $50, will provide you with both of those requirements as well, or you can always purchase them on your own.

It is important not to force food on the body when you are not hungry and during a detoxification process. Your body should not be kept busy coping with heavy foods while it is trying to heal. Your body is capable of removing almost any ailment or toxin, if only provided with the right nutrition, water and light to do so. However, toxic dental procedures, amalgam fillings and/or a possible MTHFR Gene mutation may strongly impact your body's ability to eliminate toxins and your detoxification pathways. Therefore, you may want to discuss these issues with a Naturopathic Doctor or a Biological Dentist before embarking on a regimen that encourages detoxification.

In order to assist a detoxification process, you may want to eat light anti-inflammatory foods such as; skinless poultry, fish, steamed vegetables, some fruit, nuts and seeds, plenty of good quality water, at least 2 liters of water a day during healing, good healthy fats and any other light foods that encourage the production of glutathione.

​Foods that you will want to avoid eating too much of include, heavy meats, grains, dairy products, peanuts, processed foods of any kind, caffeine, alcohol and especially SUGAR! (The last item should be treated like the plague at all times while trying to detoxify the body!)

The sauna sessions will cleanse the body naturally, with or without fasting or any special diet. However, the proper nutrition, water intake, rest and supplements mentioned up above are encourage for optimal results and may help during a healing crisis. The body does have the strength and vitality to withstand a healing process but it is still recommended to take it as slow as possible not to induce a rapid onset of die off from potential viruses, bacteria, yeast/fungus or parasitic infection or by releasing too many toxins, too quickly, like heavy metals, herbicides and/or pesticides.

If you experience any of the symptoms mentioned up above for several days after your session, there is no need to be anxious or take any special measures. The best option is to rest and stay hydrated. Taking any aspirin or any other medication will only interfere with the healing process. However, if your symptoms persist beyond two weeks and you haven't increased your sessions or food supplementation doses, or you should have an adverse reaction, please contact your doctor directly. All new supplements, services, diets, exercise and detoxification protocols should be discussed with your healthcare practitioner prior to starting anything new anyway, so that you can be properly monitored if you currently have any health concerns.

Again, we are not doctors, nor do we make any claims pertaining to being health care practitioners. Therefore, we cannot provide you with any direct or indirect health advice/suggestions. These food supplements and sauna sessions should also not be considered or substituted for medical treatments / therapies / medication(s) or advice from a certified health care practitioner.

The healing process can start within 3 days of your session in some cases and may last anywhere form 1-2 weeks on average depending on the intensity and your current wellness condition. By eating correctly, fasting and drinking plenty of water, the body may eliminate wastes a little at a time and you are less likely to experience a healing crisis that persists for too long of a period. However, a healing crisis can come in waves where at times you might be experiencing symptoms, they disappear for a few days, only to return again. This is also a common occurrence known as retracing.

Imbalances In The Body Only Occur

When the body is dangerously full of mucus or catarrh.


Enough germs, bacteria, yeast, viruses or parasites are present and multiplying.


The body’s strength and vitality is low, leading to poor ATP levels and an imbalance in your body's bio coherence.


When you have stagnant energy flow in the body from past emotional traumas, scar tissue, self-deprecating thoughts or from allowing your energy to be bled back to the environment through toxic blue light, nnEMF exposure or even through surrounding yourself with negative people.

There is a danger to the body when the elimination organs are clogged (detoxification is hindered and will generally last longer in more serious cases such as cancer or Lyme Disease.)

The above conditions do not all have to be present together for the body to become out of balance. In most cases, the body will only cleanse itself to the point where it can tolerate the toxic wastes and won’t completely eliminate them, unless measures are taken to assess your physical environment and a real effort is taken to eliminate those outside substances in which created the imbalances in the first place. If these outside substances are not dealt with or eliminated, many conditions may reoccur even after a full detoxification protocol. So deal with what brought you here in the first place.
