I also did some research (I always do on mostly about everything) about Spirulina's effects on our body. I came across with different results but still points to one thing, people who take Spirulina will normally undergo a healing crisis. Healing crisis is a process in which the body undergoes an intense period of cleansing and rebuilding.As part of the healing process the body will begin to discard toxic residues which have build up in your body over the years. This positive side-effects might persist for two, three days or longer, depending on the different health condition of each individual. Also, I have came across with an clear explanation of what I'm going through right now.
Flu, Cough, Excessive Phlegm
This above condition is caused by excessive filthy mucus blocking the alveolus in the lungs. The body intelligent calls for a cough to shake off and remove the toxic mucus deposit in the lung and trachea. This is also a positive symptom of detoxification process following an improved immune system. Through understanding of the natural laws and acknowledgement of the body’s innate self-healing abilities, the body will perform self-repair even more effectively.
So despite with all the discomfort my cough and cold is giving me, there's hope of getting better. Like they say, there's a light in the end of the tunnel. If you are in the process of cleansing and may also be experiencing a healing crisis, just hang in there, don't give up and we'll make it through! I look forward for that very day when this healing crisis comes to an end and we'll all live healthily ever after. :">
