contra-actions (healing)
Occasionally, you may experience any of the following reactions after treatment; this is known as a contra-action and is the body’s response to the treatment:
  • Headache 

  • Dizziness or nausea 

  • Disrupted sleeping pattern 

  • Muscles may feel tired and achy 

  • Increased urination or passing stools 

  • Increased thirst 

  • Fatigue 

these reactions are uncommon but perfectly normal and show that toxins are being expelled from the body, so that it may rebalance and cleanse itself.
