As we choose foods that starve Candida and other opportunistic bugs, yeast and bacteria cells die. As they die, they release waste and something called endotoxin.
As you may guess, endotoxin is slightly toxic to the body. And because the immune system mounts a response to this endotoxin, we usually feel worse as we cleanse.
