Thanks v much guys. She had a few days off from the A-BAB but is back on a lower dosage now. She'd reached as many as 12 drops twice a day with not a great deal of symptoms which seemed very weird. Clearly takes a little while to rear its head...
She does a lot to detox, but how much is enough? (Rhetorical question..!) IR sauna twice a week; charcoal, chlorella and bentonite clay before retiring; milk thistle; body brushing; Epsom baths; turmeric; ACV, amongst other things. Hoping it all subsides in a few days - thanks both for the input
The toxins can continue to build...so even with maintaining a certain dose...over time that dose can cause a herx.
Here's a link to a website on detox methods....maybe there's something there ... although her listed detox methods looks pretty good.
BTW is she taking probiotics for gut health?
And any exercise? yoga...or a short walk is good - gets the blood circulating./www.tiredoflyme.com/detox-methods.html
