The terms "Acute Disease" and "Chronic Disease" must be clarified! These are specific terms in the literature of Natural Hygiene. Their mutual exclusivity is best appreciated in the following:
· is a disease that takes a short, sharp course of only a few hours, days, or weeks.
· has a relatively shorter period of development due to lowered ability to tolerate toxic saturation. The Acute Sufferer may seem to "flare up" into the Acute Stage suddenly and, often times, with a great show of vitality.
· may last only a few hours, days, or weeks after strict adoption of The Energy Enhancers and immediate abandonment of The Energy Robbers.
· reflects a strong enough supply of Nerve Energy and residual vitality that forceful elimination of toxic waste and conduction of the reparative process is still possible. The body, that is, still has sufficient vitality to conduct a Healing Crisis.
· results in, at best, complete reversal of the disease process if The Energy Enhancers are fully adopted and if the several causes of Auto-Intoxication are removed.
· is designated "remedial in nature," as Acute Disease is an orderly process by which the body attempts to detoxify and repair itself.
· uses up Nerve Energy in the elimination of toxic waste and in cellular repair, such that tissue integrity and normal organ and systemic functioning are improved. The Health Seeker may feel enervated or exhilarated when the Acute Crisis is passed, depending on the amount of Nerve Energy expended and on the kind and amount of toxic overload expelled.
· is a disease that persists for a long time many months or years.
· has a relatively prolonged period of development due to the increased ability to tolerate toxic saturation. The Chronic Sufferer exhibits lowered vitality and experiences progressively worsening symptoms as time goes on.
· will last the rest of The Chronic Sufferer's lifetime if strict adoption of The Energy Enhancers and immediate abandonment of The Energy Robbers is not instituted.
· reflects a state of toleration of toxins: it is a state of continued elimination of toxins on a lower level than in Acute Disease. In the latter stages of pathological conditions, especially after the use of medications for years, The Chronic Sufferer can reflect a weak supply of Nerve Energy. Even in such a case, the conduction of the reparative process is still possible if The Energy Enhancers are strictly observed.
· results in the complete arrest of the disease process and possibly in the reversal of much of the abnormal tissue changes and degenerations that have already taken place if The Energy Enhancers are adopted soon enough and if the causes of Auto-Intoxication are removed.
· is "remedial in nature" if The Energy Enhancers are strictly adhered to. However, some tissue changes of a detrimental nature have taken place in Chronic Disease. The tissue degenerations are sometimes reversible, sometimes not, depending on the severity and the type of tissue damage.
· is ended with cellular poisoning such that tissues, organs, and whole systems lose their functional integrity, ending in long-term misery and/or finally the death of The Chronic Sufferer.
