I took some echinecea to get over this head cold and now my neck, shoulders and arms are achey and stiff. Everytime I take it, it makes me feel this way. I guess you are all wondering WHY I still take it, lol. Because it does help with colds and I usually start feeling better within a few days.

Echinecea is said to act like an antibiotic. I'm really starting to think that it is killing bacteria off. I have yeast issues too and it is supposed to eradicate that as well.

Oh well, I guess I need to jump in my sauna and do some detoxing.

Hey cajungrl, i've been missing in action for a while, but couldn't sleep tonight and remembered my good friends on healingwell, it's good to be back! Anyway-that is GREAT stuff and i wouldn't be surprised if you were herxing on it. It empowers the immune system. something abx can't do. It is even safe for children and my sister and i buy a brand for kids and give it to our little ones during colds. The only thing i've read it's not recommended for is flu- but can't remember where i read that for the life of me. I hope you feel better soon, do you think maybe you're getting some inflammation in those achy/stiff areas? maybe from herxing? just a thought but I've read some good things about primrose oil being a good anti-inflammatory. well i better try to go to sleep...wish me luck. :)
I refuse to stay sick! Period.

That's it! I'm going out to get some more Echinecea! I took it all the while I was on Amox, so maybe my improvement has as much to do w/ Ech as the Amox?! (megadoses of C and garlic as well, which I will do the rest of my life....)

Lyme,

Maybe so. Maybe that's why you felt extra bad too while you were treating. I'm so glad you're feeling better.
