    My body is extremely fatigued when I wake up after taking detox supplements the day prior. It's as if my body has utilized all its resources while detoxing overnight. Yesterday it was L'Ornithine, previously I had tried Enterosgel, RestorX, Xymogen's OptiCleanse GHI and others which are suppose to cause no side effects in normal people.

    Anyone know why this is? Would more glutathione or L-glutamine help?

    I haven't got my 23andMe results yet, but I suspect MTHFR and CBS mutations based on what I have read on this forum so far.

    Really this is the main thing stopping me from continuing detox right now (and I do feel better after detox otherwise).

    I am not sure that your body being tired from doing its work would be considered a side effect. Perhaps if you took less of the supplements and slowed down the detox you would not get as tired.

    Recovering from almost any type of illness is work for your body and often requires extra rest.

    I always feel worse on waking without doing any treatment. Could this mean I have a detoxing problem?

    hmm .... so it's normal to feel like you've been run over by a truck in the morning after detox? My bf has tried almost everything I have, and although he has many toxins as well he doesn't have these major fatigue/herx symptoms like I do (he is much stronger and bigger than me).

    I have gone through this, esp. when using SMP supplements. I have found a lot of relief just by taking minerals in the morning. If I"m really bad I leave them by the bedside.
