Dietary Cleansing Reactions
What to expect during dietary cleansing
by Dr. Stanley S. Bass, ND. DC. PHC


If I were asked which is the area of greatest misunderstanding and confusion in the field of nutrition, I would immediately be forced to reply, “It is the failure to properly understand and interpret the symptoms and changes that follow the beginning of a better nutritional program.”

Now, what happens when a person follows the rules and makes a decided improvement in the quality of the food consumed? Remarkable things begin to happen to the body as well as the mind. The amazing intelligence present in every cell of the body and the wisdom of the body in its operation immediately becomes manifest. The rule may be stated thus, when the quality of food coming into the body is of higher quality than the tissue that the body is made of, the body begins to discard the lower grade materials, and tissues make room for the superior materials that it uses to make new and healthier tissue.

What are the symptoms or signs that become evident when we first begin to omit the lower grade foods, and instead introduce superior foods - those that are more alive, more natural than those we are accustomed to? When the use of a toxic stimulant such as coffee, tea, chocolate or cocoa is suddenly stopped, headaches are common, and a letdown occurs. This is due to the discard by the body of toxins called caffeine and theobromine, which are removed from the tissues and transported through the bloodstream during its many bodily rounds.

Before the noxious agents reach their final destination for elimination, these irritants register in our consciousness as pain—in other words, headache. The letdown is due to the slower action of the heart - the resting phase that follows the stimulation of more rapid heart action forced on the body by certain poisons called stimulants. The more rapid heartbeat (or pulse) produces a feeling of exhilaration, and the slower action produces a depressed state of mind. Usually, within three days, the symptoms vanish and we feel stronger due to the recuperation that follows.
