What to Expect When Starting a LiquidCMO Regimen

What to Expect When Starting a LiquidCMO Regimen

VERY IMPORTANT– It is important to note that while the “Healing Reaction” sounds bad, most of our clients report that it only lasts from 2 to 5 days, and that the feeling is very similar to a fibromyalgia or arthritis flare-up.  If you have any questions about the “Healing Reaction”, and wonder if that is what you are feeling, after you start a LiquidCMO regiment, please feel free to call us at (602) 451-1197, and will offer great free advice on how to get through it as quickly as possible.

We understand the detoxification process and can help you through it. When you start to take the LiquidCMO, over the course of the first several days, you will or may start to feel worse than you did before. What is happening in my body? The answer is; The Healing Reaction! The Medical term used for the “Healing Reaction” is the “Herxheimer Reaction”.

This is a great sign—it means that the LiquidCMO is working. This short term healing reaction was seen in the statistics of the LiquidCMO clinical study that has been completed and published.

Healing Reaction Explained From LiquidCMO Clinical Study:

Discussion/Results of LiquidCMO vs. Fibromyalgia

“It is proven that all subjects, after starting LiquidCMO,  reported a reduction in overall health (lasting 2-5 days) followed by rapid improvement and greater overall sense of well being as reported in results, which may be explained by using a Herxheimer type reaction theory. Herxheimer type reactions, also known as a “healing reaction”, are a temporary intensification of symptoms, which have been shown to be the result of released toxins, which result in a cytokine cascade.

The major findings of this clinical study were overall dramatic improvements in physical, mental and emotional function. Several subjects reported increased visual acuity and reduced or normal blood pressure. After subjective and statistical analysis, all eighteen subjects showed marked improvements in all eight measures calculated by the SF36 Health Questionnaire. Overall improvements in every aspect measured were profound. Read LiquidCMO Study

The decrease in pain perception and improvements in cognition, physical and social function and vitality may be due to LiquidCMO effects on anti-inflammatory pathways, serotonin, nor epinephrine, thyroid hormone level formation or regulation of, or cellular membrane fluidity in signal transmission, cellular waste removal. LiquidCMO may also have an influence on vasculature physiology based on blood pressure findings and increased visual acuity. Because LiquidCMO is a fatty acid ester, cellular membrane integrity/fluidity and cell to cell signal transmission must be considered as a possible mechanism by which LiquidCMO exerts its multi-factorial effects.”

With the right supplements, and the detoxification of the body systems, the human immune system, most often, can and will repair the damage that over time has been expressing itself through chronic illness, and the most individuals will return to health, and have a restored quality of life.

We realize that much of this information on the Healing Reaction might seem discouraging, however, do not lose hope. The Healing Reaction DOES NOT last very long. Remember that removing the toxins and disease elements from your body is critical to your long term health. The overload of bacteria, viruses, and toxins are going to be evident sooner or later. You have the choice to either deal with them now, on your terms, or deal with them later, when the overload of toxins manifests into serious chronic illness. It is much more positive to go through a short healing reaction now, than an extreme health crisis later. If you have any questions about whether you are experiencing Healing Reaction Symptoms that are abnormal, you may also contact us at LiquidCMO by calling (602) 451-1197, or email  support@azfibrocenters.com or email us at askthedoctor@LiquidCMO.com, We understand the detoxification process and can help you through it.

Below is a more complete explanation of the Herxheimer Reaction, which was discovered by Dr. Karl Herxheimer. For more information on this subject, look to Wikipedia.

1.  What is a Healing Reaction? (Herein after referred to as the “HR”)

In the course of following a Nutritional Program to address illness, many people experience uncomfortable symptoms that result in a “HEALING REACTION”. The Medical term used for the “HR” is 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 your bodily systems are, the more severe the detoxification, or healing reaction will be.

2.  What are the symptoms of the “HR”?

This is a partial list of Healing Reaction Symptoms. Some of the documented symptoms of the healing reaction are as follows.

  • Sleepiness or fatigue
  • Nausea
  • Cramps
  • Headache (believed to be caused by buildup of toxins in the blood)
  • Fever
  • Aches, Pains
  • Arthritic flair up
  • Flu like symptoms
  • Diarrhea

3.  What do I do during the “HR”?

While going through the “HR” make sure to drink plenty of clean water to wash the toxins out of your body. We have found that water is probably your best bet. We recommend ½ to 1 Gallon per day for the 1st week, and at least ½ gallon a day thereafter. This will help to wash the toxins out of your system, and speed along the detoxification.

During this healing reaction, it is normal for the individual to be very fatigued as their body eliminates this accumulated toxic overload. It is very important to rest as much as possible during this period of cleansing and restoration.  If the symptoms of the “HR” are severe, our clients have related to us that Prayer, Meditation, Acupuncture, and Chiropractic care have all been beneficial additions to speeding up the healing process, and reducing the pain.

4.  Why is the “HR” a necessary part of my return to health?

  • Over time, our bodies accumulate a large amount of toxins due to daily toxic exposure
  • The Air we breathe (contaminated with auto exhaust, cigarette smoke, etc.)
  • The Water we drink (contaminated with chlorine and fluoride)
  • The Food we eat (contaminated with fertilizers, herbicides, pesticides, etc.)
  • The Medications we take (both prescribed and over the counter medications)

For the human body to return to optimal health, it is necessary to remove these accumulated toxins, and restore balance to the many different body systems. If we do not remove this massive overload of toxins from our system, then, no matter what supplement or medication we take, we can only expect limited results.

Autoimmune Disease, particularly Lupus, can be triggered by toxic damage. Environmental chemicals that are a known risk include: mercury, pesticides, hair dyes, PCBs, and plastic contaminants, such as bisphenol A. (4)

Toxins damage the immune system directly, but they can also cause autoimmune disease by damaging the body’s tissue, so that the tissues are changed, and are no longer recognizable by the immune system. The thyroid gland is particularly vulnerable to damage by environmental toxins. This is why autoimmune thyroid disease is so common.

There are over 30,000 chemicals in current use, and they have never been tested for long-term safety. If safety studies were done at all, they were for short term acute toxicity, and did not consider the cumulative damage from combined toxin exposure. They certainly did not consider chronic immune damage. Long term safety studies will be done on many of these 30,000 chemicals, but the results will take decades. In the meantime, protect your immune system by minimizing exposure to pesticides, solvents and plastics as much as possible.
