I had made some progress with antibiotics but due to the severity of this herx I believe that it’s hiding out with the antibiotics and may be making things worse.
so you are still having severe herxes and u are thinking to stop abx ? hmm
i wouldn't. i would go on until my symptoms are less severe. if u have a lot of bacteria, what do u think will it happen when u will stop abx ? nothing good
herbal-only treatment. my experience was bad. find a really good LLND for that, there are many that claim they can treat u but few that really know how to. I relapsed quite badly after 2 years herbal (was treated with abx for 6 months before).
