I'm attempting the kidney cleanse again for the third time. The first three days, I had problems with horrible, constant gas. I reduced the amount of the herbs I soak to 1.5 tablespoons overnight. Then I added another 1.5 tablespoons right before boiling. Today, fourth day, I am happy to report so far so good!
Question: I am experiencing lethargy and, well, downright exhaustion, all I want to do is sleep. Seem to have no pep for my normal day to day activities. This has intensified with each cleanse day. Is this a usual side effect of the kidney cleanse for some people? I am a vata and body is extremely sensitive to the introduction of new substances.
Is tiredness, fatigue, lethargy a usual side effect of the herbs used in the kidney cleanse, or the kidney cleanse itself?
