Taking too hot of bath can cause die off of bacteria, since you are heating up your body temperature.

It can cause herxing. Not sure if this is the case for you, but its a possibility.

Bathes should be lukewarm ,not hot.

Take care

I don’t take hot baths - Just a comfortable temperature.

As goshawk stated - if you’re looking for relief then you don’t want a really hot bath - it could cause herxing.

I used to love hot showers. But these days even warm showers kick up my inflammation something horribly. I tried the hot cold therapy for a short while. But the cold is just too much for me right after the hot. But doing this really gets the blood moving and detoxing going.

I find with me that hot showers/baths just cause too much inflammation. This coupled with the heat killing spirochetes and my detox pathways possibly slowing down equals a bad few hours.
