I did the oral HPI 2 1/2 weeks ago and my life has been hell ever since. Persistent, virtually constant anxiety. I hardly get any sleep. I had been telling myself it was yeast die-off, but I don't think it is. It's slightly different. With bad die-off I get constipation and bad brain fog. What I have now is mainly anxiety.
I'm sure my cortisol levels are through the roof as a consequence of an immune response. The questions is: What is the immune system reacting to? I now believe it is more likely an overgrowth of some bad bacteria in my small bowel. I have confirmed leaky bowel, which would make symptoms worse (more toxins reach the blood).
My plan is to give it a few more days, to bring it to 3 weeks, then I have to start doing something to reduce the bacteria.
