I'm very ill at the moment. All the questions and answers on IQ relates to disease have all been very helpful, another thankyou should be merited. But again, there dosnt seem to be the answer out there...
How the body becomes ill is quite an easy explanation: bad, unexpressed vibrations OR a mainstream, heavy belief that would include gentic diseases, or the beliefs and fears "there's a virus going around, so you'll probably catch it like everyone else did..."
How do I become well again? I've got methods, but which is the truth and why??
Relating again to the Abraham process, I noticed that it was said "if you were to pay no negative attention to your physical body you would be amazingly healthy." Does this mean if we pay zero attention to our body in a negative shadow, or reached the neutral point with it, shouldn't we all be looking like supermodels?! (Oh I hope so....)
I notice you started a bounty on this question after most/all of these answers were already here so it suggests you are still looking for something more.
Okay, I'll throw in my perspective and see if that is of any use to you...
I don't think there can ever be a step-by-step approach towards health from non-health that will work for everyone all of the time. That's simply because we all have our own unique balances of desires and allowing for those desires.
I've previously put up a Dis-ease equation in Why is it we get sick when we expand?:
DIS-EASE = SUMMONING OF ENERGY - ALLOWING OF ENERGY
If we assume that "Health" is a state where "Dis-Ease" is minimized then the key to "health" whether physical, financial, emotional, relationship-wise or anything else in your life is to allow your desires as much as possible (since it's very difficult, and not recommended, to stop desires being launched in the first place).
So my earlier statement about there not being a step-by-step approach for healing that will work for everyone may now become a bit clearer.
For example, to a person that has been brought up believing that mainstream modern medicine is the solution to all illness, it may be allowing to them to visit a medical doctor and receive some pills for their condition.
To another person who perhaps had a loved one who died following a botched surgical operation, the idea of mainstream medicine might be disallowing and so suggesting that would simply create more resistance. For them, perhaps some kind of "alternative" healer might be more allowing.
To another, a state of allowing may come about from engaging in their religion or following the teaching of their guru. Yet another may find allowing through a vacation in a pleasant location. Yet another, may find allowing through laughing and watching comedy. Yet another may read an Abraham book.
There's countless ways for people to find their own personal state of allowing. And I've noticed that after they've found one that works for them, there are many who then proclaim it as the solution when, in fact, it's really just the solution for them and their own particular vibrational mix.
It's never about WHAT has caused you to ALLOW, it's just about the fact that YOU have found a way to ALLOW that works for you for now :)
So having effectively just told you that I don't think there can ever be a definitive answer to your question ( "How EXACTLY do we become healthy after becoming ill?" ), all I can really do is offer some general suggestions...
How do tightrope walkers grow more confident in their skills?
Simple. They eventually stop falling off :)
But you can never eventually stop falling off unless you've fallen off before, so there can never be anything wrong in falling off ...because it's how you discover how to get better at not falling off in future :)
A vast majority of conditions can be healed/survived with deep breathing. Not just short intervals, but changing the way that we breathe. The breath should be slow and even, but natural, you should be using at least 75% of your lung capacity with each breath. I have a client who is battling stage 3 cancer this way, and it is not the first time she has done this - she was stage three 8 years ago, and took no medicine, had no chemo/radiation, took no other treatment at all, except deep breathing. She has an impeccable lifestyle as well, mind you - she's mostly vegetarian but eats fish, does not drink alcohol or smoke, limits her sugar intake to rare pleasures, only eats until she is finished, not until she is 'full'. She's a fascinating person for this and other reasons.
The right attitude is necessary. I haven't read the Abraham books, and I'm only just getting familiar with inward quest in general, but I can say from experience that adjusting vibration is not a technical process, it is organic and intuitive. Our vibration is expressed in moods, and this is too often overlooked in the material that discusses it. Adjust your attitude and your mood and the vibration will follow; the reverse is true when we are not mindful of our mood. One of the more interesting things that I ever learned was from the casteneda books, "Power is a Mood." I didn't initially understand it, but later in my development it became almost obvious. Find your mood of power, and learn it. We too often allow our mood to move and change on it's own, while we are largely unaware of it. So it becomes easy to passively let ourselves be depressed, feel weak and helpless, angry, etc., and often not even realise it. If we attempt a technical algorithm to adjust our vibration, it will be temporary and cannot be consistent because the mind, and our energy system, is not technical - it has no 'edges and lines' as it were. It is as organic as we are, and the only way to consistently maintain an adjusted vibration is to recieve it into the emotional self, which is capable of maintaining our vibration more consistently and more pervasively.
The organic part, of course, is paying attention to diet and LISTENING to the body. You cannot make assumptions about which diet is best, instead you have to learn to tell the difference between information and addiction. We live our lives, and our diets, largely according to addiction cravings, rather than information cravings. And with all of the information out there, we are inundated by constant commandments to eat this or that way because it is the 'healthy' way to eat. But, this is not so, there is no universally healthy diet. There are obvious guidelines, and we all know that too much of anything is going to be bad for you - but what we are not told because it doesn't sell, is that your brain knows at any given moment exactly what you need, it is aware of the content of what you eat on a chemical level, while your body-spirit is aware of that content on a vibratory level. KNOW your food - intentionally observe what you are eating, and pay attention to how your body feels about it. Eat with this observation attitude, and when you eat, put everything else away. It is better to eat quietly rather than while talking or distracted by television, newspaper, whatever else. In western culture, eating is a social activity, but this attitude prevents us from communing with our food and our body while we eat, and puts blinders on us so that we are unaware of the information our body and body-spirit is giving us about what we are eating. So, pay attention to your food. Nothing that exists is without spirit, spirit is awareness (not ego-awareness, pure awareness), your food is aware of you. It isn't aware of you the way you are aware of it; it doesn't resent you for eating it, no worries - but just as your body assimilates the organic elements, your body-spirit assimilates the organic spirit of the food. If you are aware of that spirit, give it attention and appreciation when you consume it, this process becomes sort of like an alliance, and the organic spirit of the food will.
Finally, it is necessary to overcome the fear of death. It's easy to say that we are not afraid to die. Many people who have said this, are faced with death and discover that this is not the case. Remember that a strong will to live is not the same as fearing death. One is proactive, the other is reactive. When we fear death, we will try to hide it from ourselves - with addiction, with frivolous connections to others, with the accumulation of belongings. All of this dampens our awareness of that fear. When we have a strong will to live, we are able to act intentionally to preserve our life because it is precious and not because we fear losing it. True Knowledge of the immortality and indestructability of the Spirit is the first step in transcending the fear of death. Many people stop there, but that is not the right way, or, it is not really enough rather. Experiencing a false-death, that is, emulating death, is the next step and cannot be taken until we have confidence and faith in the state of the spirit as eternal. To emulate death is not simple, but not really difficult either. It is challenging because we cling to the ego. The real purpose is to uncover the true fear of death, more so than to overcome that fear. If we lay down, and imagine dying, let the breath become shallow and then still, and slowly allow our personality, our memories, all we hold dear, to drop away from us, forget ourselves, our loved ones, forget everything in the way we are washed 'clean' after death, a great fear will come upon us, and we will begin to chase these things through our mind, collecting them and gasping them close. It is necessary then to intentionally let them go, embrace that fear, and allow ourselves to experience the false-death completely. There is not a universal guide book to what happens then. You will fall asleep, and probably dream. When you awake, you must remember the fear although your brain will attempt to forget. Meditate on the fear, make peace with it, and hold in your mind both the fear of death and the faith of the state of the spirit. By and by, the fear of death will be consumed by the faith in the spirit. It cannot be rushed. You will, during this process, be confronted by "what if I died?" You'll reconsider life and how you live it, and you'll have to make choices about how you live, if you're living the way you want to or not and if not - do you make peace, or make changes? You'll have to answer if you are really happy or not, if you are fulfilling your dreams and your potential. You must make these choices, and you must make them with honesty.
There is no universal guide. Not one, anywhere, it does not matter how complete a book, belief, tradition seems to be, give up entirely the concept that there is a complete or perfect answer. You will always be limited if you do not. That said, I can say that my process turned my life upside down, took me across the country and back, had me shed unecessary relationships, and made me quite poor for quite some time. The little death inside, caused a little death in my external life. It was a painful experience, and I have not known anyone for whome the experience was not painful. Now, however, I have prosperity, loving relationships, I gain more of myself each day, I am at peace and happy all of the time, and I see my life with clarity perhaps most importantly of all. I am never 'sick', though my body does the things it is supposed to do when it becomes contaminated. Some people also go through a healing crisis. You do not need a guide through this - though you will likely have several anyway - you only need faith, and a measure of serenity.
Maybe all of this is already present in the Abraham books, or on inward quest. If so, know that it isn't just my own opinions! Some of it is inspired by tibetan buddhism, if you care to explore more. However, I have worked in the healing profession for ten years, approximately, and this is combination of personal experience and lessons learned from my patients.

I personally only once managed to instantaneously heal a cough, but still these might be good suggestions :
Also Nikulas, it seems from your post that your mind is very active, worrying, trying to figure out what to do (and as a result offering more resistance) - the breathing process will be very good for you. Clear your mind of those thoughts and allow whatever happens to happen.
Feel well my friend.

Be careful who you talk to Nikalus. Anyone who agrees that you are ill are actually agreeing that tomorrow you are ill. Up till now you have been ill. As from this moment you are well, inside, in your new universe you are well. Focus on that universe for your cells are not agreeing with you. you have been taking the camera off of the wellness so they only know how to copy the illness that you have been showing them. they are copying well. Focus on the wellness that you saw last week. Keep your camera trained on it and keep that camera ON. IT WILL SHOW YOUR CELLS WHERE THEY CAME FROM and they will return to that state of perfection. They love you, the become whatever you tell them bo be. They exist for you. If you leave them they will die. Your cells need your guidance to show them the vision of you, the you that you truly are, that you prefer to remain.
All statement of fact is prophecy. It takes today and projects it to tomorrow. It copies and pastes. But you already wrote tomorrow's best scenario Nikalus. Then you discarded it and went back to the scenario of sickness.
Friends help you to create new, better scenarios, not copy and paste old ones. See you tomorrow, now that your well, healthy self is being down-loaded into the minds of your cells, telling them what to do. Love you! xxx

Nothing against the ideas that things just magically happen and you can magically cure them with a magical response, but I don't think any of those suggestions are valid methods of healing a sickness, nor do I think there is anything in this reality that cannot be explained with logic and reason, even matters of a spiritual nature.
To quote myself from another question:
If you want to heal a sickness you must identify the source of the problem. Also something to keep in mind, the manifestations and/or negative wills of those around you can have adverse affects on your body and/or soul, up to and including making you severely ill or even die.
If you desire I could perhaps attempt to offer further aid on where to look for the cause of your particular problems if you were to provide more details regarding your symptoms.
Otherwise I encourage you to seek the aid of a 'specialist' that you feel most appropriately fits the category of your illness. Empaths can often provide insight to emotional turmoil, physicians for bodily injuries, etc.
A point that has been brought up in many of the answers: Your state of mind has a very strong influence on your body and spirit's ability to fight off any opponent, internal or external. I would never deny the importance of positive energy or thoughts in the healing process, or any spiritual / physical activities for that matter.
This answer is marked "community wiki".
Sorry to hear you are feeling poorly. I believe in the best of both convencional and complementary / alternative modalities so please listen to your doctor while doing all you can to help yourself. It is important to have good nutrition without overtaxing the body so fruit juices are great at this time. They are very easy to digest without causing too much energy expenditure. Please incoporate them in your diet but dont take them with other foods (causes fermentation ).
It isn't easy to not think about that which you are going through and feeling but there are ways to support yourself through your ordeal. First of all know that this is just temporary and soon you will be as good as new and even better. Before sleep and early morning imagine yourself in perfect health. See yourself doing all the things you love to do and see your friends and family congratulating you on how well you look. Do this till you feel your subconscious believes it and it will be done.
All of us here at Inward Quest love you Nik so you have ample support so get well soon my friend.

Everyone heals themselves. Your immune system is perfectly capable of healing anything when you allow it to do it's thing. Strengthen your immune system energy with powerful nutrients and water, and rest. Visualize the immune system doing it's work, and take deep breaths as much as you can to bring in fresh energy for your healing. Check out the Gerson Therapy.
I would also add that, Knowing The Truth/God, about yourself and your place in this life is the sure path to long lasting wellness. To know the truth is to let go of fears by allowing the Love and your infinite nature to come through. We exist in God's playground of experience, so Know that all is well. Smile, because smiling is a sign to yourself and to all the everything is O.K. Your body will resond to your smiling spirit. Listen to you inner, higher self and trust. Follow the singing of your heart or the primal feeling in your gut. Honor the Earth because we are all One.
In short, Knowing Yourself = Wellness Forever.
Peace and Balance
