I think I've read that detox diets often make people feel worse before they feel better. How this works specifically for people with Lupus I am not sure, but I *always* suggest everyone check in with Drs before making major changes in food, sleep, exercise, or vitamins/supplements. Often the Dr is carefully tracking how we are reacting to the meds they prescribe, and changing something without telling them can throw off the whole treatment plan.
