It is quite normal to feel worse before it is better, and it is a good sign. I would say that my first herx was the worst, but mostly that was because I didn't realize that it wasn't a sprint, it is a long, steady process that will get you better. Stick with it, you will get better!
Everyone is different; how long it takes for you to feel better on this protocol depends on a lot of things. Detoxing, getting enough rest, eating well, staying ahead of the yeast, keeping a positive outlook will all help you feel and get better. Keep in mind that the colds and flus that hit at this time of year can make all your symptoms worse (hack, hack, sniffle, wheeze).
I've been working on getting better for 18months. There were times when I wanted to quit but that is not an option. Living untreated is just not a life. I am aiming on getting back to full health and activity and leaving all this behind.
Good luck with your fight
