As your dog’s body restores its natural balance and begins to heal itself you may notice what is known as ‘The Healing Crisis’. This is characterised by a temporary increase in symptoms during the cleansing process and these can be mild or severe.
Your dog may feel and appear worse for the first 24 to 48 hours and you may therefore conclude that the treatment is not working. However these symptoms are actually a sign that the treatment is being effective and that the body is going through the process of cleansing itself of impurities, toxins and muscular imbalances.
This is a perfectly normal reaction and allows the start of cellular regeneration.
Signs and symptoms may include:
- Increase in sleeping
- Very quiet
- An increase in joint or muscle pain
- Possible lameness for 48 hours
- Frequent urination
- Increased thirst
