Constantine Hering, the father of American homeopathy coined the phrase,
“A person’s disease disappears from the top to the bottom, from the inside to the out, from the
greater organs to the lesser organs and in the reverse order to which it originated.”
In my ongoing research into lectin-free anti-inflammatory diets, I’m continually reminded that recovery and changes in symptoms take time. We are accustomed to 1 week courses of medication or, a lifetime on pills, that dietary change holds a somewhere-in-the-middle position – allowing our bodies to recover at the rate of cellular change, from subtle inflammations and the numerous side-effects we may be knowing or unknowingly experiencing, is a lesson in patience. Testimonials range from 2 or 8 months for skin conditions, weight balance and allergies to 3 years for more the serious diseases of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.
Real healing takes time. Even though a colonic can be magnificent, life changing even, Hering knew his stuff.
