As an update, after having originally been put on doxy for just two weeks, my doctor decided to re-prescribe me an additional months worth of doxycycline. As I am back on the abx, I am noticing that my symptoms have increased- headaches, facial and head tingling, neck and ear pain. Is this typical for a herx reaction?

I am not seeing an LLMD yet, but am working on it.

Yes, AZez - the symptoms increasing is a herx.

Are you detoxing ?

What's detoxing?


When the bacteria dies off it produces endotoxins - when these build up in our system it results in inflammation that causes an increase in our current symptoms plus even new symptoms to appear.
We need to flush the toxins out by effectively detoxing - employing multiple detox methods daily. This can help minimize the herxes.

Some suggestions:

Drink minimum 8 glasses water daily
Squeeze fresh lemon juice into some glasses
Take a liver support supplement - eg. Milk thistle seed extract
Take probiotics (for gut health)

You can start the above right away and then every few days add in another detox until you are employing multiple methods daily.

Some more methods I do:

Epsom salt baths
Dry brushing my skin bfore the baths
Nutramedix Pinella and Burbur
Activated charcoal
Exercise


If you drink lemon water - drink with a straw do not to damage tooth enamel and rinse mouth with clear water after.

Activated charcoal (and other binders) - take a couple hours away from medications, food and other supplements because otherwise it will flush them out along with it.
