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
Thanks Girlie. She used to do yoga quite regularly but has fallen off the wagon slightly. I'd say exercise is one of the things she's missing at the moment, but I guess it's usually the first thing to go when you feel ill. Will try to encourage. She's just Neti potted and it's helped quite a bit!Oh, I totally understand about
the exercise. I always feel better after I exercise BUT it's very difficult sometimes to motivate myself to do my exercises. When you're body is hurting...or you have fatigue...it's not something you want to do.....even if you know you'll feel better after.
