What is the Herxheimer's Reaction

Both anti-spirochete and anti-Babesia treatment will induce the Herxheimer's reaction during the first three weeks of treatment. Herxheimer’s reaction is caused by toxins released by the large number of dead spirochetes eliminated during the initial part of treatment This means that symptoms will worsen temporarily. If the reaction becomes hard to tolerate for the patient, then the amount of herbal intake should be reduced to half or even less to build up tolerance gradually. After the reaction period is over (may last around 3 weeks), the patient will experience gradual and steady improvement.
