RISIS in the ordinary sense of the word means change, either for better or for worse. In its rela tion to medicine, the term "crisis" has been defined as "a decisive change in the disease, resulting either in recovery or in death." We of the Nature Cure School distinguish between "healing crises" and "disease crises," according to the character and the tendency of the acute reaction. If an acute disease is brought about through the accumulation of morbid matter or the invasion of disease germs to such an extent that the health or the life of the organism is endangered, in other words, if the disease conditions are "forcing" the crises, we speak of "disease crises." But if acute reactions take place in the system because conditions have become more normal, because the healing forces have gained the ascendancy and "forced" the acute inflammatory processes, we call them "healing crises." Healing crises are simply different forms of elimination by means of which Nature endeavors to remove the latent, "chronic" disease encumbrance from the system. The most common forms of these acute purifications are colds, catarrhal and hemorrhoidal discharges, boils, ulcers, abscesses, open sores, skin eruptions, diarrheas, etc. Healing crises and disease crises may seem more
