so i started teasel yesterday evening after consulting with people at the community pharmacy and reading a book by wolf storl called healing lymes disease naturally. i figured i can try out some supplements/herbs while waiting to see the LLMD. i put 5 drops in a glass of water before dinner (dosage varies from 3-30/40drops given 3 times a day). i chose to start at 5 and each day add a drop until i get to 30 and then taper down (this was one approach recommended in the book). within 2 hours of taking the teasel i started feeling really awful in my head- burning sensation, nausea, head pressure, just terrible! my body felt tingly and weird. could the teasel have started working in such a short time? and at such a small dosage? i am small and thin, i dont know if i feel drugs and supplements more than others because of this. but could this have been some type of a herx? im not on antibiotics for lymes. i also woke up today achy. just curious. my plan is to continue the teasel treatment for a month at least
also i plan on drinking lemon water, detox tea, starting to drybrush and hot baths. any recommendations of other detox methods while i try out teasel? thanks!
