HerX is for the temporary relief of symptoms related to Herxheimer reactions such as brain fog, fatigue, chills, muscle discomfort, nausea, and malaise.
Why HerX? Both holistic and conventional medical professions recognize the possibility of uncomfortable physiological reactions during treatment of spirochete infections (syphilis and Lyme disease), co-infections or yeast overgrowth. A Herxheimer (formally called “Jarisch-Herxheimer”), or die-oﬀ reaction, may occur with both herbal antimicrobials and conventional antibiotics. The physiological mechanisms of a Herxheimer reaction are not fully understood. However, it is believed to be an acute inﬂammatory response. When bacteria or yeast die they release a variety of toxins, proteins, antigens, cell particles and oxidizing agents that may provoke increased production of inﬂammatory cytokines, such as tumor necrosis factor alpha, interleukin-6 and interleukin-8.
Since many Lyme disease symptoms are the result of excess inﬂammatory cytokines, an acute inﬂammatory Herxheimer reaction manifests as a temporary worsening of Lyme symptoms that begins 24-48 hours after the initiation of antibiotic treatment. Treatment of fungal colonization will almost invariably result in a Herxheimer reaction in a hypersensitive patient if the treatment is too aggressive.
HerX is the ideal product to help temporarily relieve Herxheimer reaction clearing symptoms, including fatigue, malaise, fever and join pain. HerX can be used alone, or can accompany any detoxiﬁcation support protocol which includes the OmniCleanse or Comprehensive Homeopathic Detox Kit, and it can be excellent support for temporarily relieving symptoms during the Series Symptom Relief Protocol.
What Are the Symptoms of a Herxheimer Reaction? The symptoms of a Herxheimer reaction are generally ﬂu-like. The reaction is self-limiting and should resolve in one or two days. HerX is formulated with traditional homeopathic ingredients that are indicated for the temporary relief of symptoms of fatigue, malaise, fever, chills, joint pain, muscle pain, rash, headache, and brain-fog.
