RISE AND RECOVER (A guide to Rising Above common mistakes in treatment:)

A guide to Rising above common mistakes in treatment:

1. If you are taking things that cause die off/herxing, you should have a definite detox regime and binders as part of your protocol.

2. Whenever adding in new supplements, please go low and slow and track your symptoms. Certain things, for example lion's mane, could interfere with sleep for many. Those with lyme can be more sensitive. Be watchful for things that could cause sleeplessness. Some supplements should be avoided in the evening. See here:

3. Most binders can be taken together but should be seperate at least 2 hours away from other things you take.

4. Not paying attention to electrolytes/salt when you use a sauna or sweating can cause more harm than good.

5. You need to drink plenty of water to detox properly.

6. Constipation should never be ignored because you can reabsorb toxins.

7. Taking binders in the night or right when you wake can help your entire day.

8. Taking binders twice a day is needed for many patients.
