Herbs are foods and are not dangerous to the body. If you experience discomfort when you begin taking a supplement, you are most likely experiencing a healing response. The body's ultimate goal is for perfect health. When a healing response takes place, the body is working in unison to eliminate waste products from the body. Some of the reactions could include nausea, sleepiness, fatigue, skin issues, ear infections, diarrhea, or any combination of symptoms. This response usually lasts for a few days of duration, but can last longer for someone who has very low energy. During this time, the body needs water to carry out the toxins and rest for the body and mind. If you are feeling a lot of discomfort, slow down on the speed that you are cleaning out your system. Keep in mind that you did not become ill overnight, and it also takes time to bring the body back into balance.
To avoid sickness eat less; to prolong life worry less. ~Chu Hui Weng
