Could be either one, or a mix of both, depending on the strength of your immune system (and probably other factors I'm not thinking of right now).
Herxing means die-off of bacteria (good), but it also means clogged/overloaded detox pathways (not so good).
I've read here and on other chronic illness forums that exercising to tolerance is better than trying to force onesself to stick to a set plan no matter what. So maybe throw in some detox baths, etc. and see what happens?
