Hi Sophie!!
So happy that you found us!!
I'm not the most knowledgeable one on this site, but I do like to help & share what I think I know!!

A herx is a die-off of toxins, entering your bloodstream, in order for your body to rid itself of these nasty little things. As hard as it

might be to get through a herx, it's actually a good thing - as it means whatever you are doing is working!!

There are many things you can do to help your body rid itself of these toxins. Please see the thread:
"Everything you need to know about detoxing"

I've 'bumped' it up so that it will bee easier to find. Hope this helps a little until someone more knowledgable can post.

Take care ~
