In brief: Healing process

There are many inflammatory substances that the body releases in the process of an infection control or a toxic elimination.
The effects of this process are felt in differents ways: decreased appetite and intolerance to food that one might have tolerated well before, abdominal distention, tenderness, changes in stooling patterns, less energy, etc. It might take a few weeks to resolve.
