We are constantly exposed to health-robbing toxins and heavy metals. These pollutants accumulate deep within our tissues and organs. But what happens when we try to cleanse and release toxins quickly with methods such as fasting or rapid weight loss? The results can be respiratory difficulties, digestive upset, joint pains and other problems. Many people refer to these as a healing crisis. A healing crisis is caused by the quick release of toxins from organs and tissues into the circulatory system.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) there is something called the "detox cycle". The detox cycle consists of 2 phases. Phase 1 is known as discharging. In this phase toxins are released from different tissues and organs into the circulatory system. After that they go through different detox stations: Liver, Heart, Lung, Digestive System, Joints, Kidneys. Phase 2 is known as excretion. In this phase the toxic substances are excreted by sweat, breath, urine, bowel movements, emotional, psychological release.
Phase 1 starts with the liver leading the process. The process is emphasized during the spring season, because the spring season corresponds to increased liver activity.
Heart: phlegm and inflammation in the heart channel, insomnia
Lung: symptoms of a common cold, excess phlegm, respiratory congestion
Digestive system: constipation, bloating and flatulence
Joints: common area where toxins get stored, joint pains (mentioned further above)

Besides my diet was fine by today’s standards (a mix of dairy products, cereal products, meat, salad, vegetables).
Some years later however, I stopped eating meat products (mostly because of a bad conscience). And that was when the worst symptom suddenly disappeared.
So did animal-products cause the Flu?

So, your problems were likely caused by the Randle cycle, not the meat.
I'll just skip over all the rest of your purely anecdotal and extremely flawed analysis

The healing crisis is real, a couple of times I have gone on a cleanse diet and radically changed what I eat on a daily basis, both times it felt like I had the flu, but the symptoms passed both times within 72 hours.
I have come to the conclusion that our diets have too much meat and dairy consumption, one doctor told me we only need to eat meat once a week. And a nutritionist recently told me if I want to lose weight and have a better detox, to reduce my dairy intake. Cutting down on meat is easy for me, but dairy is hard, because I like cheese and ice cream products.

We notice massive behavior modifications in the plant and animal world, according to seasonal-changes, unseen and unheard. Yet we think that humanity is above all of that.
Put 10 women together in a house for one year, and their menstrual cycles will sync-up.
Why would it be hard to imagine that our bodies have some kind cleansing-cycles ?
Perhaps they could be triggered by herd-energies, seasonal-cycles, presence of toxins, etc...
Dr. David Martin has hinted at these things.
But how dare anyone question Germ-Theory™ : the pet of Rockefeller™ Pill-and-Scalpel™ Medicine™ ??

many things have been put down as covid, like car accidents, heart attacks, pneumonia and maybe even the odd case of SARS-CoV-2. As long as enough cycles could trip a PCR test it gave the hospitals a lot of easy money.

As a practitioner of Oriental Medicine, I can tell you you’re on the wrong tack entirely with meat. In fact I was a vegetarian (11years at the time)…during school it was impressed upon us the importance of a small amount of red meat ( out of total meat consumption) a week for “yang.”
Years later during a CEU course in Asheville, NC, I was experiencing serious health issues due to overt practice is Chinese Wu Shu, another practitioner insisted I I eat dark meat (chicken) in some food he prepared where we were staying …it was like magic and I began eating meat again from that day with huge gains in my overall health.
