Buhner says you can definitely do herbs and antibiotics together.
To prevent a strong herx, detox is the only remedy I know. Dying and dead bugs (toxins) want to get out of your body and there isn't a clear path for them = herx.
You have to make a clear path for them to get out. Getting those organs to expel those toxins is the plan. Our skin is a huge organ and dry brushing it will really help. Lemon water is awesome for kidneys, liver and gall bladder. Help your body get clean of toxins.
There are numerous ways to detox. www.tiredoflyme.com/detox-methods.html
The most immediate detox is alka seltzer gold. It has to be GOLD, and I hear it is hard to find except on the internet. Have that on hand.
Did your doctor tell you to stagger start your abxs? Start one and do it for a couple of days to make sure you aren't allergic before you start the other?
