Detoxification and Regeneration

Detoxification and Regeneration through Diet

(Based on an article by Dr. Ede Koenig in Health Freedom News)

The greatest misunderstanding and confusion in the field of nutrition is the failure to understand and interpret the symptoms and the changes which follow the implementation of superfoods and more natural diet.
The highest quality of foods we human can place into our bodies are foods found in their whole form. The amino acids are in their finest form. The minerals, vitamins, carbohydrates, trace elements, and "life force" are present. This life force, in turn, is capable of reproducing healthy tissue. When the quality of food coming into the body is of higher quality than the tissues which the body is currently made of, an interesting phenomenon happens: the body begins to discard the lower grade materials and tissues to make room for the new, healthier materials and tissue.

This is the Nature's plan: The self-curing attributes of many conditions such as colds, levers, cuts, swellings, injuries, pain, etc., all furnish endless examples of how the body tends toward health and it always does unless our interference is too great and we do something to stop the process. These are often the symptoms which become evident when we first begin to omit the lower grade foods and introduce superior ones -those which are more alive, more natural than we are accustomed to.

Two examples

When a person stops drinking coffee, two things are often reported: a letdown of energy, and headaches. These two symptoms are due to the discarding of the stimulants called caffeine and theobromine, which are removed from the tissues and transported through the bloodstream during its many body rounds. Before they reach their final destination for elimination, these irritants can register in our bodies as pain; in other words, a headache.

The letdown is due partly to the slower action of the heart, the resting phase which follows the stimulation of a more rapid heart action forced upon the body by the coffee´s stimulants. The faster heartbeat was producing a feeling of exhilaration; the slower action now produces a depressed state of mind. Usually within three to ten days the symptoms vanish and the person starts feeling stronger.

Animal foods, such as meat, cheese, milk, eggs etc., are extremely difficult to digest. If a person starts decreasing the amounts of these foods, the withdrawal which follows the shift to more vegetable quality foods produces a slower heart action-a resting phase-which registers in the mind as relaxation, or decrease in energy. This initial letdown. again, is followed by an increase or strength, a feeling of diminishing stress, and greater well-being.

How to fail

The person who starts a better quality food intake, stays with it for 3-7 days and then quits, will say, "Oh, I felt better on the old diet the new one made me feel weak." He failed because he didn't give his body a chance to adjust and complete its first phase of action: recuperation. If he had waited a while longer, he would have begun to feel better than before he started.

First Phase; Recuperation

During this initial phase (lasting from 10 to several weeks), the vital energies which arc usually in the periphery or external part of the body, such as the muscles and skin, begin to move to the vital internal organs and start reconstruction. This shunting of much of the power of the internal organs produces a feeling of less energy in the muscles, which we often interpret as sonic weakness. Actually, the power is increasing, but most of is being used to rebuilding the more important organs and less of it is available for muscular work. Any weakness which is felt here is not true weakness, but merely a re-deploying of forces to the more important internal parts. Here it is important for the person to stop wasting energy, and to rest and sleep more. This is a crucial phase and if the person resorts to stimulants of any kind. He will abort and defeat the regenerative intent of the body. It is important that he has the patience and faith to just wait it out, and after a while he will get increasing strength which will exceed by far what he felt before he began the new program.

Success in recovery or improvement of health hinges upon the correct understanding of this point, realising that the body is using its main energies in more important Internal work.

Be wise-take it easy here, and relax. Just coast in your work and social obligations until you´re out of the woods.


As one continues on the improved diet and gradually raises the food quality, interesting symptoms begin to occur. The body begins a process called "retracing". The cellular intelligence reasons something like this:

"Oh, look at all this fine material coming in. How wonderful; now we have a chance to get rid of this old garbage and build a new house. Let´s get started immediately. Let´s get this excess bile out of the liver and gallbladder and send it to the intestines for elimination. Let´s get this sludge moving out of the arteries, veins, and capillaries. These smelly, gassy, brain stupefying masses have been here too long. Out with them. These arthritic deposits in the joints need cleaning up. Let´s get these irritating food preservatives, sleeping pills, aspirins, and drugs out of the way, along with these other masses of fat which have made life so burdensome for us for so long."

During this first phase, with the accent on elimination (also called catabolism), these wastes are often discarded faster than the body´s ability to eliminate them: thus the symptoms. These wastes are also being discarded faster than the ability to replenish new. tissues, often evident in weight loss. This all persists for a while and is then followed by the second phase: stabilisation.

Second Phase; Stabilisation

During this phase the amount of waste material being discarded daily is equal to the amount of tissue which is being formed and rejected by the newer, more vital food. This occurs after the excess of obstructing materials in the tissues has been removed. Here body weight remains more or less stable. This stage persists for a while, depending on the former condition of the body.

Third Phase: Strengthening

This is then followed by a third phase a build-up period (also called anabolism), wherein the body finds its optimum weight, even though the diet is lower in calories than it was before. At this point, much or more of the internal waste have already been discarded; the new tissues which have formed since the diet was raised in quality, are more durable and do not break down easily. These tissues are also being formed faster. This is due to the improved assimilation made possible by cleaner digestive tract, better nutrients, and better food combinations. The body´s need for the usual amounts of food decreases and we are able to maintain our weight and increase our energies with less food.

How Healing Looks

People´s bodies often retrace patterns of the past. For instance, people who have had tendencies in the past to recurring skin rashes or eruptions will frequently tend to discharge wastes through the skin with new rashes or eruptions.

"How come this is happening?", the person often asks. " I´m eating better now than I ever did before, and instead I´m getting worse!

This is a critical juncture of healing. Many practitioners, unfamiliar with this aspect of nutrition, will often misdiagnose the problem. In this example of skin problems, most will call the problem an allergy. In fact, the skin is becoming more alive and active. With some, colds and fever will appear. This is not the body´s response to lack of Nyquil or aspirin. It is nature's way house-cleaning.

Understand that these actions are constructive, even though unpleasant in the moment. Don´t try to stop these symptoms by the use of certain drugs, or cortisone, or even massive doses of vitamins (which can acts as drugs in huge concentrations). These are not deficiency conditions nor allergic manifestation, not if you´re increasing the quality of your daily intake. These symptoms are part of a curing process don´t try to cure a cure.

Symptoms to be excited by

These headaches, skin rashes, fever and colds may occur at the beginning; there may be intervals of bowel sluggishness, diarrhoea, feelings of tiredness and weakness, disinclination to exercise, nervousness and weakness, irritability, negativity or mental depression, frequent urination, and many more.

The symptom will vary according to materials being discarded, the condition of the organs involved in the elimination, and the amount of energy you have available. The more you rest and sleep when the symptom are present, the milder they are, and the more quickly they are terminated. Be happy you are having symptoms. Realise deeply that your body is becoming younger and healthier every day because you are throwing off more and more wastes. These wastes would eventually have brought pain, disease, and much suffering. Those who have the worst symptoms, and follow through to their successful termination, are perhaps avoiding some of the worst diseases which would eventually have developed had they continued their old habits.

Health happens in cycles

You may be eating perfectly, observing all the correct rules, and all symptoms will occur. Don´t expect to go on a straight line scale of quality --- that improving your diet will make you feel better and better each day until you reach Perfection. The body is cyclical in nature, and health returns in a series of gradually diminishing cycles. For example, you start a better diet and for a while you feel much better. After some time a symptom occurs: you may feel nauseous for a day and have diarrhoea, etc. After a day, you feel even better and all goes fine for a while. Then you suddenly develop a cold, feel chills, and lose your appetite. After two three days (assuming you don´t take drugs or do anything else about it, you suddenly recover and feel better than you did for years.

Let´s say this well-being continues for two months, when you suddenly develop an itch and or a rash. You still don´t take anything for it. This rash flares up, gets worse, and continues for ten days, and suddenly subsides. Immediately after this you find that some old hepatitis symptoms are gone and your energy has increased more than ever before. The rash became an outlet for the poisons in the liver which produced the hepatitis from years back. This is how recovery occurs and you feel better, a reaction occurs, and you don´t feel as well for a short time. You recover and go even higher for a while. Then another reaction occurs, milder than the last recover and go even higher. And so it goes.

Watch in Amazement...

Nature gives us a chance, every day, for a new life. Before your own eyes, you will daily see signs that will cause you to wonder at this vast intelligence in operation that staggers the comprehension. The mystery of the body and the vital forces working in Nature are far beyond what our minds are able to comprehend at present. So, have faith, sit back, and watch how healing happens.
