If you are only just now starting to detox, you likely have a pretty high toxin load, so you will herx easily and quickly. Be sure to start each new detoxing routine slowly and never start something new or raise the amount close to each other. We usually say to give yourself 3 - 5 days for your body to adjust.
It was likely the garlic that made you herx though, not the lemon water. Garlic is a natural abx, although not strong enough on it's own to treat these infections due to them being so complex.
