Just Say NO to Herx Symptoms!

Since the 1990's I have been one of the first doctors to take a stand against using severe Herxheimer reactions as guide and indication of "good" treatment. When a doctor uses a natural or pharmaceutical antibiotic to kill some Lyme spirochetes in a person, there is often a resultant Jarisch- Herxheimer reaction (Herx) -- a worsening of the patient’s symptoms in response to the increased release of bacterial die-off toxins.
