Acute and Chronic Illness
Chronic illnesses are always there. They are considered to be so deep that our natural healing system cannot push them out or externalize them. Examples are allergies, asthma, skin conditions, MS (multiple sclerosis), cancer, heart disease, Parkinson’s, ADD and others that usually never go away. The opposite of a chronic illness is an acute illness.
Acute illnesses are often very uncomfortable and dramatic but temporary; they go away. Examples are colds, flu, measles, mumps, chicken pox, infections, a 24- (or 72) hour “virus,” and many
others. The symptoms may include fever, vomiting, diarrhea, malaise (feeling yucky), fatigue, skin eruptions, coughing, sneezing and sweating. Acute illness is the most powerful anti toxicity therapy we know. After the acute illness is over we find a healthier (cleaner) and happier person in its wake.
That’s why growth spurts (both physically and mentally) have been noticed after a child has measles or other acute childhood illness. Measles has also been observed to cure kidney disease.
