Please do keep detoxing heavily! Remember that the 'storm' has calmed, but that only means the levels of the toxins are down - not gone.
BJD, as someone that has lived through some very severe herxing, it's not worth it to allow it to happen. Mild to moderate herxing is tolerable, as long as we are detoxing well, but to push past that is not smart - no matter how long it takes to get up to 'suggested doses'. This is because the herxing can quickly go into what is known as a cytokine storm, which can be life threatening.
This is a really good article about
