Well, one thing to take into account would be the long term use of arteminisin. I know that it's somewhat controversial in some circles, but Buhner is a highly renowned Herbalist and his cautions should be given deference.
Here is what he has to say about
the use of arteminisin:
"Arteminisin begins to become less present in the blood the longer it is taken; by day 7 the constituent is only present at 24% of it's day 1 levels. The isolated constituent is not very effective if taken longer than 7 days at a time for parasitic infections.
If it doesn't work for Babesia (or whatever) within a few week to a month, it is not going to. Pulsing will not help."
From your timeline though, I would think that it was a herx from Candida that has you in it's grips right now. Candida produces toxins known as gliotoxins. According to Dr. Neil Nathan (an expert on molds), gliotoxins are most effectively bound by Bentonite clay and S. boulardii (a probiotic, actually). It may be something to either check into yourself or talk to your doctor about
I'm not sure what's in the "lymph detox" that you said you were taking, but red root will help with detoxing the lymph system, as will lymph massages (/www.youtube.com/watch?v=QA-wi0d7-Ro
) - just watch the red root, as it can also "thicken" the blood and make it more difficult for the body.
Keep on working on detoxing more/better - that's a huge part of our healing!
