LOL Opugirl!! You'll never get rid of me that way!!!
Well, please be sure that you are eating enough calories to at least keep your weight where it is, although you probably could stand to gain a couple of lbs from the sound of it!! If I could, I'd just ship you some of my extras!!!LOL!! It would help me out too that way!!
I would suggest that you keep up the external detoxing as well though. You can add in the foot soaks, and keep the amount of time and the frequency of the full baths down to help.
When I first started helping my body to detox externally, I set off really horrible herxes. I had to go to using foot baths only, only 2 or 3 times a week and could only have my feet in the water for 7 - 10 minutes at a time. I still don't do the full body soaks often for a couple of reasons, one being that I don't have a regular bathtub, so I have to use a livestock watering tub!!!
LOL!! I do look a bit like a cowboy who got thrown into the horse trough in the old cowboy movies!!! LOL!
Oops, back to explaining things (snicker, snicker) ..... so if you would try adding in the foot soaks with Epsom Salt and Hydrogen peroxide and don't stay in the water for more than 10 minutes for now, it would probably help quite a bit.
A word about
herxing though. Many people believe that having herxes is okay as long as they don't become life-threatening. but I disagree. A herx is a 'healing crisis', and when the body is in crisis, then it will at least slow the healing that is happening, at worst, it stops all healing in order to deal with this sudden crisis inside of us. Since we all want to heal as fast as we can, it just doesn't make any sense to me to allow conditions to exist that will slow that healing when it's so simple to avoid. Some minor herxing can't be avoided, but when ever the body begins to show that it's having issues with moderately increased symptoms, then it's interfering with progress.

Jernigans and the others is their herbal approach to healing that you could do while waiting to see your LLMD. Sorry for any confusion.
