    Like flu simptoms, are very usual signs of detoxification by the body after raising glutathione levels for the first time, keep taking and it will disappear with time.

    Typical symptoms are:
    Headache
    Flu Symptoms
    aching
    Sore Muscles.
    Body aches.
    dry throat
    weakness
    Chills / sweating
    Joint pain
    sleepy
    Frequent Urination
    swelling
    itching
    acne
    Please write me for more info about it c.c.p.r.o.7.7.7. at g.m.a.i.l.

    Your description is similar to detox symptoms which mean you are increasing your intracellular glutathione levels. A good thing to do :)
    If you want to find out the best way to increase the natural production of glutathione contact me.

    The flu symptoms are a common side effect of introducing glutathione back into the system. It's not the glutathione that's making you sicker, it's all the toxins in your body being flushed out all at once. Once they're all gone, you're body will be cleaner and healthier than it was before.

    I am a 64 year old woman who has been on Wiley's Protocol hormone replacement for about 6 years, and bio-identical hormone replacement therapy altogether for 10 years. For about five years I have had a chronic cough - several coughing fits a day - and a lot of mucus & post nasal drip. I've been tested for allergies, asthma, lung cancer, acid reflux....etc. and it is a big mystery to the doctors. I wonder if this cough could be related to the high doses of estrogen, progesterone and/or testosterone that I have been taking during this same time.

    Works great for quitting smoking! The first few weeks you dream in technicolor just like an anti depressant but then that goes away.
