Herx Reactions and Lyme disease treatment
Herxheimer reactions, also referred to as die-off or a healing crisis, is an increase in symptoms when an illness is treated. This often occurs when treating Lyme disease and its coinfections.
This can occur due to inflammation or neurotoxins being released when organisms are killed. Increased inflammation occurs when organisms are killed off due to immune system activation.
Herx reactions can last for a few hours to a few weeks, depending on the person's detoxification pathways, and vary greatly from person to person.
Check out our amazing products to help you lessen the die-off/herx reactions you might experience while treating Lyme disease.
