Serious attention to detoxing will help in dealing with the symptoms. These bacteria put off toxins when they die and many times our bodies have compromised detoxing pathways.
Herbs can make you herx just as bad depending on each person's toxin & bacterial load. I herxed hard for 3 weeks when I used an herb (Houttuynia or HH) for my Bartonella infection.
With that said, I couldn't tolerate abx treatments at all, herbs were much easier for me to handle and deal with the herxes. it may be an option for you as well.
Are you seeing a doctor that is willing to help you with herbs?
