To continue on from the last article (Healing reactions and retracing on Nutritional Balancing), an example of a severe acute retracing case study is detailed following. This example illustrates how retracing can mimic ‘disease’ processes, yet is actually the body healing and becoming healthier. When on a Nutritional Balancing program, it is paramount that you stay in contact with Sari when you experience any concerning symptoms. A simple change in supplements and diet recommendations may be required, or perhaps supportive therapy prescribed to keep you healing and experiencing increased health and happiness.
A severe acute episode occurred whilst a patient was in the Four Lows pattern. His Na/K ratio had been balanced for the previous two HTMAs and his body was in a much better position to take on such a reaction. He suddenly developed cellulitis in his lower leg. It was swollen to twice its normal diameter, very red and angry looking, and very hot to touch. He experienced intense itching and some pain. It spread quickly to covering most of his lower leg, and started to track up over his knee also. He had no fevers. A GP assessment for a Medical Work Certificate concluded it was an ‘atypical cellulitis’ and promptly commenced anti-biotics. The patient chose not to take the anti-biotics.
Two days later, it was no better and of growing concern. If he did not have his leg raised above his heart the swelling was unbearable. He then developed a fast spreading rash on his torso. Within a day it went from sparse red spots, to his whole front and back torso, arms and neck all becoming one big angry red area where the rash had merged together. It was extremely itchy. The GP had no idea what this rash was and called it the ‘mystery rash’!
This lasted two weeks. He was unable to do much of anything, except look after himself Nutritional Balancing style!
It was initially difficult to discern whether this was retracing or an infection that required conventional aggressive treatment. Please read Healing reactions and retracing on Nutritional Balancing to learn about retracing further. It soon became apparent that this man was experiencing retracing. The following list is reasons why this was retracing and not a worsening of his health:
- It was not a ‘normal’ cellulitis- it usually tracks horizontally, this tracked vertically
- Usually one would have fevers and feel terribly ill. He did not.
- The rash came on quickly and severely, but again, he had no accompanying symptoms.
- The fact that the rash started only days after the atypical cellulitis is a big coincidence!
- He was feeling really well preceding this reaction.
- He had dumped copper in the past and it had come out through his skin. This was a different presentation however.
- Twenty years prior, he had typical cellulitis in the exact same location. He was not on a Nutritional Balancing program at the time, and was treated with antibiotics.
- Ultimately, he healed without the need for antibiotics. Before the discovery of antibiotics, cellulitis was fatal.
Procedures used to support this healing
This man had cellulitis years prior and it was treated with antibiotics. This did not allow the body to heal the infection, but rather suppressed the body’s reaction to the infection. Now that his body was healthy and balanced enough to actually deeply heal the infection, it brought it out in an acute way. The body then, if given the correct support, could heal the cellulitis thoroughly and deeply so as it will not return again. Sari advised him to do the following, to allow the deep healing to occur:
– his NB diet, to the best of his ability
-Near Infra Red (NIR) heat lamp sessions as much as he could tolerate. The heat intensified the itch, so he did short, frequent sessions
-cease supplements until the retracing subsided
-comfrey compresses on the leg to extract the toxins quicker
-3L good quality spring water daily
-plenty of deep breathing, resting and sleeping
-Foot reflexology and coffee enemas
Within two intense weeks, this man was back to his normal work and life duties, without the need for any drugs!
The take-home message
The aim on a Nutritional Balancing program is for your body chemistry to change, as this indicates you are healing. Your chemistry will not stay stagnant if you are on a NB program. The abundance of nutrients you get from your food, and all the minerals in the supplements all contribute to your body increasing its stores of minerals and healing tissues. The detoxification procedures, and your diet and supplements will all help your body eliminate toxins, and this also changes your body chemistry.
Furthermore, when your body chemistry changes, your symptoms also often change. Sometimes you will feel better, but other times you will feel worse because the supplements you are now taking are not what you require for your new body chemistry picture.
Therefore, it is very important to stay in contact with Sari whenever you have symptom changes. This is not a program to guess about, or self-prescribe. Symptom changes includes if you are feeling better or worse. It could be that you have an increase in energy, your bowel movements change, you develop a skin condition, or you get some anxiety. A whole range of things can happen that indicate your body chemistry has shifted. Often ones insight is reduced whilst retracing, and this is another reason to please contact Sari rather than attempt to figure things out your-self. If you are taking the incorrect supplements, diet and procedures for your new current body chemistry, it can be detrimental to your healing.
After you inform me of your new presentation, I will consequently review your case and advise of an updated program including a new prescription, change in procedures and lifestyle recommendations, and/or a change in diet. Sometimes you will not need an updated program. Sometimes you will just need to let the retracing or healing reaction work its way through to its completion. I will advise you of the best course of action to maximise your healing on Nutritional Balancing.
Not everyone experiences more severe retracing as outlined in the above case study. However, all retracing and healing reactions are a positive sign of healing and should be welcomed (however hard that may be at times!) Your body is getting rid of infections, toxins, and heavy metals and consequently rebuilding a new and healthy you!
