With a decrease in functions of the body or chronic metabolic abnormalities, you might feel transient discomfort in the process of improvement. Such discomfort would neither last long nor be accompanied by severe pain. This is called "cleansing reaction".
There might be redness and mild inflammation on the skin, and, if the skin is dry, it might be accompanied by a little itchiness.
If it occurs inside the body, there might be temporary constipation, diarrhea-like symptoms, or increased frequency of urination.
Sometimes you may also feel your stomach stretching; or it may temporarily affect the value of the blood test.
On the skin, you may feel like your pores look big or become loose.
If it occurs inside the body, for a while, you may have some difficulty waking up in the morning.
Yawn comes out frequently, and you may feel unusual fatigue and sleepiness during the day.
Also, as the tension is allayed, your old injury may hurt again.
The skin is oily; but, to the contrary, it feels dry. At times, it also feels like the dirt and waste are all removed when you’re washing your face. In addition, if your renal system is weak, very rarely, the facial cleanser might be mixed with a grayish color when you’re washing the face.
If it occurs inside the body, you may fart a lot or it may also be accompanied by diarrhea and so on.
If you feel refreshing and warm after the diarrhea, this may be the reaction in the process that the autonomic nervous system is adjusted gently.
Diarrhea that is bad to the body (such as the cases of food poisoning, appendicitis, or various diseases) will always cause griping pains in your stomach, and may be accompanied by severe pain. Such a case is not a cleansing reaction. Please consult your doctor as soon as possible.

★Please stop using if it doesn’t work well.

●Do you have an unbalanced diet?
A balanced diet, including nutrition, is very important. You should try to take in more alkaline foods because eating out too much will make you more acidic. In addition, foods are considered to be either negative or positive in oriental medicine. Taking in too much fat (positive) or linoleic acid or white sugar (negative) will make it easier to develop allergy-like symptoms, or cause metabolic syndrome (obesity).
● Do you have circulation disorder or cold sensitivity?
If you don’t do anything about it, the circulation disorder may decrease the function of your internal organs, and may also become the cause of hormone imbalance. At times, eczema appears on the lower part of the face or around the neck. Also, a woman may have irregular periods or severe period pain.
Cold sensitivity tends to cause "rise of Qi." The mental fatigue cannot be easily fought off resulting in continuous nerve tension and stiff muscles in shoulder, neck, and waist. You should try to avoid cold things, walk more and take a comfortable bath.
●Do you have constipation or diarrhea?
Constipation is the root of many incurable or rare diseases. Of course, your skin may easily become rough, and there may be more abnormalities such as uncontrollable emotions or weakened immune system. If the diarrhea continues, you may have your gastrointestinal mucosae damaged. So please consult your doctor if you have severe symptoms.
Check the balance of your diet one more time to see if it contains sufficient cereal, fiber, minerals, vitamins, and amino acid.
●Is the balance of your autonomic nerve about to collapse?
Do you sleep well? Can you wake up easily? Is your body temperature normal? Do you have symptoms such as numbness or dizziness? ... You could unwittingly develop too much fatigue if you always have poor sleep, insufficient exercises, unhealthy diet, mental fatigue, disordered breathing, and unrewarding daily life without a direction. Painful symptoms without clear causes may last, though they cannot be considered as illnesses yet... This might be the disorder of the autonomic nerve. Let's make a change of your lifestyle.
● Have you taken sufficient measures against fatigue and aging?
Fatigue and aging will decrease both functions of internal organs and metabolism. Please note that effort and perseverance may at times worsen the symptoms in such cases.
Please also take in enough water, which is good to the body (human), as the moisture becomes harder to maintain. No one likes to see wrinkles, liver spots, or dullness forming. As long as they suit you, the enzyme and lactic acid bacteria, as well as nutritional supplements that make it easier to maintain the immunity, are also very effective.
●Do you have any chronic disease or immune disease?
For example, if you have a chronic disease such as diabetes, it may persist for a long period of time along with complicated symptoms, and worsen gradually. It is important to have blood test and physical examination, and try to check yourself objectively.
It could be very dangerous if you have a chronic disease or immune disease but do nothing about it. Please push yourself to receive treatment in spite of your anxiety.
If you’re seeking to improve your health through alternative medicine and health supplements, it is essential to combine them with treatment.
IgA (immunoglobulin A)
Sweat glands in the skin not only sweat but also produce a substance called secretory immunoglobulin A (IgA). This substance has a function to protect against infection of bacteria and viruses from outside the body, but it has also been confirmed in the digestive system and trachea.
The immunoglobulin A, which has been revealed by research that it can prevent infections both in the skin and in the internal organs, also contributes significantly to the condition of the skin. When there seems to be not enough immunoglobulin A due to some reason, the surface of skin can become dry or irritable, or prone to inflammation such as redness and itching, and also easier to be dwelled on by bacteria and viruses from outside the body. In addition, it becomes easier for the antigens, which are also the cause of allergic reactions, to invade, and easier to develop unpleasant symptoms.
Although immunoglobulin A functions as a barrier for the skin and mucosae. When they dry out, its functionality will decrease and a slight deficiency of it will occur. Therefore, moisturizing is one of the important things for skin care. There are a number of factors that may result in the lack of immunoglobulin A, such as fatigue, stress, lack of sleep, poor nutrition, circulation disorder, cold sensitivity, decline in the function of digestive system and internal organs, aging, hormonal imbalance, autonomic nervous disorder, chronic disease, and immune disease. As a means in our everyday life, it is essential to avoid, where possible, chemicals that may easily cause hypersensitivity reaction in the skin, and to ensure gently moisturizing. In addition, it is already well known that high-quality water, amino acids, low molecular weight collagen, minerals, and vitamins can have a positive impact. And if we further incorporate the components or the ion balance of hot springs, we can achieve the functionality of cleaning and anti-inflammatory effect.
Those that meet these factors are highly functional. And, if they’re almost natural, and have been verified of their effects, as a matter of course you’re more likely to be able to break free from those unpleasant symptoms and keep a comfortable condition.
