The Natural Healing Process

No permanent cure will ever be reached unless this process has been utterly completed.

Your body wants to heal, and if you give it what it needs to do so, it doesn't want to stop. This is a good thing. The body's inherent desire is perfect health and we have the ability to earn our way back to that state. A healing response, or healing crisis, is in effect when the body is in the process of eliminating toxins. You will probably experience a series of healing crises. One should expect this and work towards it. Reactions may be mild or they may be severe. These will continue as long as you continue to cleanse your body, until it is clean, and no more toxins enter. Of course, if you are living in a city, toxins are entering your body with every breath, without being aware of them. Because the body has enormous capacity to store toxins before breakdown occurs, you are unaware of the entrance into your body of these toxins. You feel old age is catching up with you, you feel less energetic and full of pains. Using ozone makes you aware of their exit. So, in reality, you should be happy that you are having these healing episodes, as you 'peel back the onion' and remove yet another layer of stored toxicity.

The response will usually bring about past conditions in reverse order to the original problem. Ozone works backwards in time, meaning that usually the first things it addresses are the most recent toxins and the last things it addresses are the older, stored toxins. People often forget the diseases or injuries they have had in the past, but these usually resurface during a healing response. This usually lasts from a few hours up to about three days, but if the energy of the person is low, it may last for a week or more. However, to minimize any unpleasant experience the ozone should be increased very gradually whilst monitoring the person's reactions.

One episode of a healing response is not always enough for a complete cure. The more toxic one’s bodily systems are, the more severe the detoxification or healing crisis is. It is often characterized by a temporary increase in symptoms which may be mild or severe and can occur immediately or later on. With a more serious condition there may be many small responses. The person in a chronic state, who has gone through many disease processes in life, must go through these processes again in reversed order. When the ozone dosage is increased gradually to keep up with the body's ability to expel toxins, the unpleasant effect of the healing response is greatly diminished. Often the response will come after one feels their very best. Most people feel an energy boost the first few days. Then toxins are dumped into the blood stream for elimination by way of the liver, kidneys, spleen, skin, bladder and colon. Listen to your body and go as slowly as your body needs to, so that your cleansing is gradual and comfortable. Doing a series of Liver Cleanses (downloadable from is vitally important for optimizing the body’s eliminative functions. Then the goal of optimal health can be achieved.

In a certain woman’s healing journey, she has had distinct moments of recall of the injuries she sustained at various points in her life as the healing process has extended back to that event. The last episode was an event that happened when she was 9 years old, so she was getting close to the end of the healing response. There was a brief revisit of that incident, and then it was gone. This is known as retracement. This process will continue right back to the events of the day that you were born. This shows how thorough the ozone cleansing process is. After that point you will only have to deal with day to day contamination, requiring only maintenance.

The Healing Response

This reaction may also be called the Healing Crisis, Cleansing Reaction, Detox Reaction or the Herxheimer Reaction.This reaction occurs when the body tries to eliminate toxins at a faster rate than they can be properly disposed of.

The more toxic one’s bodily systems are, the more severe the detoxification or healing response is. It is characterized by a temporary increase in symptoms which may be mild or severe and can occur immediately or within several days or weeks. This usually passes within 1 to 3 days, but can even last for several weeks.

A healing response results when all body systems work in concert to eliminate waste products and set the stage for regeneration. Old tissues are replaced with new, and stored toxins are eliminated. A cleansing, purifying process is underway and stored wastes are more easily removed. The symptoms you experience during the healing response may be identical to the disease itself. Sometimes discomfort during the healing response is of greater intensity than when you were developing the chronic disease, but it is usually of short duration.

Physical reactions could include skin eruptions, nausea, headache, sleepiness, unusual fatigue, constipation, diarrhea, head or chest cold, ear infections, boils, or any other way the body uses to loosen and eliminate toxins. One response is not always enough for complete cure to follow. With a more serious condition, there may be many small responses to go through before the system can return to full health.

Hering’s Laws of Cure

To return to health, you have to go through Hering’s Laws of Cure. This set of natural cure laws will be followed no matter what natural method of treatment you adopt for your recovery. In treating chronic diseases, Constantine Hering (1800–1880) discovered that the elimination of these conditions proceeds in a certain specific order and certain rules have been laid down outlining this healing procedure.

In essence, Hering’s Laws of Cure tells us that we heal in reverse order as symptoms have appeared, from the inside out, from the head down and we may have to get worse before we get better. This is the basis of all healing. Your health will return then.

  • The reverse progression of symptoms

Symptoms disappear in a definite order when the patient is properly treated, usually in reverse order of their appearance – the most recent symptom disappears first. This procedure of symptom regression is to be expected when most natural methods of therapy are used to overcome chronic ailments.

  • Cure from the interior of the body toward the periphery

Symptoms tend to move from the more vital organs to the less vital organs thus from the interior of the body toward the periphery or skin (from inside out). The body attempts to preserve itself by depositing the residues of disease that can’t be eliminated in as harmless an area as possible, the skin being the safest, however various connective tissue and joints are also used for this purpose.

Only when the disease process is overpowering does the body allow it to invade the vital organs, and even then the body makes every possible attempt to keep the disease processes out of the heart and brain. When a patient presents a disorder of the vital organs, the curing process will be prolonged. Under effective treatment, symptoms will subside and recede from the more vital areas to the less vital areas, and the symptoms may even end with a healing reaction on the best eliminator of all – the skin.

  • The symptoms move from the top of the body downward

Symptoms will always move from the top of the body downward, disappearing first from the head, then from the thigh to the knee, ankle, and foot. Therefore, the third law is a symptomatic extension of the second law. The more vital areas are found in the head and upper portion of the body and those of less importance are encountered toward the extremities. This is important to the physician but not particularly to the patient. The true natural healing physician directs his efforts to the discovery and triumph over the underlying cause of disease, thereby resulting in a patient who is disease free, not one who is just symptom free.

  • “You have to get worse before you get better”

The technical phrase is called Aggravation suffered by Amelioration. At first this stimulation may result in a short-term intensification of these symptoms, but these soon passes.

The Bio-Oxidative Treatment Laws

Oxygen is a natural substance, and conforms to the laws governing nature cure. We will thus have to see the entire process of these laws being followed before full healing takes place.

Both the preceding Hering Laws and the following sets of Bio-Oxidative laws apply to the processes of treatment simultaneously. Each of the earlier laws of Hering are completely interchangeable and may occur in random order, vacillating between each law or between any two of the laws, as your specific elimination processes work their way to a full recovery. You may be experiencing laws 3 & 4 today, laws 2 & 4 the next and laws 1 & 3 the day after, due to the fact that your body processes these toxins and microbes according to its own unique requirements. The only certainty is that you will recover from the top down, in reverse order, whilst cleansing from the internal organs to the outer extremities, all the while going through cycles of well-being and patches of not feeling too well or even quite ill.

The 4 Oxygen Laws of Healing

The 4 Oxygen Laws work in conjunction with Hering’s 4 laws of nature cure. In direct contrast to Hering’s laws, these 4 Oxygen laws are not interchangeable nor do they occur randomly, but follow an express, logical path. These 4 Oxygen Laws are extremely crucial and when combined with the 4 laws of Hering, expedite a sustainable healing.

This set of laws is based not upon the body’s own processes but upon the nature of the oxygen ion. Oxygen reacts with a certain fundamental atomic behaviour pattern, and presents its own effect on the treatment process that simply seeks out and assaults the very root cause of disease, hence the action behind the elimination of disease.

  • Detoxification

Oxygen ions will attack any and all toxic chemical substances by oxidising them into less detrimental compounds. These compounds are more easily absorbable, transportable, burnt away, or at the very least exposed so that the body’s own elimination processes will kick into gear and deal with them as per Hering’s 4 Laws of nature cure.

  • Destruction of disease causing microbes

The nature of oxygen ions is to literally assault the microbes. These microbes are killed off in this highly effective process of disease destruction. The ion may assault some bacteria by altering their respiratory mechanisms. In dealing with a fungal infection the ion may interrupt the lifecycle by interrupting the reproduction phase of the fungal invasion. Protozoan parasites are assaulted with additional varying methods, from destroying their capsule, to respiration interruption, to a simple burning up of their ‘body parts’, to name but a few.

  • Repair of damaged tissue

This ion is pretty much responsible for the mitotic and meiotic function (cell re-growth) in cellular regeneration. Therefore, the process of damaged cell removal and subsequent repair or replacement takes place at alarming rates, to recover the damaged condition and get the cells, tissues, organs and host into optimum working order.

  • Improvement of performance and well-being

Only when all three of these preceding laws have been endured can cellular performance be enhanced. This cellular enhancement is transferred to the tissues that lead to the organ responding without labouring or struggling in the fight to rid itself of disease. The host, after a rather extended period of time, finally emerges with the overwhelming feeling of well-being.

It is also of importance to realise that within each stage of the Oxygen Laws, the patient may experience all four of the nature cure laws of Hering. These may seem to be repeated cycles until the ultimate cycle; a complete result where the ailment is completely resolved. Although this process may seem harsh, there is really no other practice resulting in long term restoration.
