Hi cityfer - welcome to our community.
Sorry you've got Lyme, but glad you found us here.
Yes, that does sound like you are herxing.
Are you doing enough to detox?
Here's a link to a website with a lot of good detox ideas:www.tiredoflyme.com/detox-methods.html
Make sure you are drinking at least 8 glasses of water daily.
You can add lemon juice to some glasses.
Some more detox ideas that I do:
- warm Epsom salt baths
- Dry brush your skin before the baths.
- light exercise if you're able - even if it's just a short walk
- take something to support your liver - eg. Milk thistle extract
- take Nutramedix Pinella - Nerve/brain cleanse and Burbur.
You need to take probiotics daily, Thos us VERY important as the antibiotics are killing off the good bacteria in your stomach and intestines.
I take probiotics two or three times a day.
We encourage all new members to read through the thread st the top of the page titled: "New to Lyme?..Start a Here!"
