Herxheimer Symptoms and Homeopathic Remedies


Herxheimer Reaction

Herxheimer Reaction / What is herxing?

Adolf Jarisch, and Karl Herxheimer, dermatologists from Austria and Germany were formally recognized for making the discovery of the “Jarisch-Herxheimer reaction”

These specialists observed “herxheimer symptoms” in people been treated for syphilis with mercury administration.

Herxing symptoms were observed after administration of antibiotic drugs and were also noted to occur with treatment of syphilis using “Salvarsan” mercury. Jarisch considered the herxing symptoms as the result of the “die-off” produced by the dead spirochetes. Herxheimer reactions were observed in 50% of patients with syphilis only and 90% of patients with syphilis and secondary illness.

Lyme as systemic disease when left untreated or insufficiently treated can lead to serious damage even chronic disability. Herxheimer reaction symptoms flare up after an infection with Borrelia burgdorferi (tick bite infection) the soonest an infected tick bite is treated, the better, the greater the chance that the infection will be successfully combated.

If you are using cannabis oil for cancer and experience herxing you may find great bud for thc oil in the Netherlands. There you may also attend the International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society (ILADS) who assert how best to maintain wellbeing and avoid neurological damage after infection from the Borrelia bacteria, such as cyst formation development or determine the possibility of a co-infection.

The Dutch treatment guidelines (CBO) recommend, depending on the stage of illness, antibiotics for 14 days to a month. In many cases, this treatment seems adequate but practice shows that this treatment is not always sufficient to contain the infection.

“If there are still problems after these antibiotics are completed, these are considered “residual symptoms,” the so-called post Lyme syndrome (PLS). It is assumed that the prescribed amount of antibiotics is sufficient to kill the bacterium Borrelia and further treatment is not considered necessary.”

For the so-called Post Lyme Syndrome is insufficient scientific evidence though, if symptoms persist, and appears the infection is still active ( the patient is advised to use cannabis oil and grapeseed extract to be taken with half tsp nigella seed daily) a more powerful antibiotic (or colloidal silver) and longer treatment with antibiotic may be necessary.

1/4 tsp Flax seed

The golden milk as treatment for herxing is taken as a fasting remedy in place of a meal. If you consider homeopathic remedies as treatment, make a “golden milk” turmeric to black pepper remedy twice daily.

Boil the milk at soft to medium heat, with one generous teaspoon of turmeric to 1/4 black pepper, add 1/4 tsp nigella seed, (otherwise known as black seed or black cumin and 1tsp basil seed) to the milk (with spice added) and after the milk has thickened slightly, remove from heat and add in the nigella, flax and basil seeds and drink while warm.

The patient drinks the golden milk in place of a meal twice daily, once in morning on empty stomach and once in evening in place of dinner, an hour before going to bed.

Such homeopathic remedies for herxing in Lyme disease or cancer treatment can be supplemented with grape seed extract for maximum effect and should be used whilst the worst herxing symptoms are manifesting, and can be once every few days to purify the blood when the usual diet is resumed.

This fasting remedy works very well especially when the patient consumes a lunch of raw wholefoods as in an “raw” organic vegetable salad or even just raw juicing at the lunchtime, in the morning and evening he is fasting but with the golden milk curcumin anti-cancer diet.

He/she should drink 2-4 litres of (preferbaly purified or filtered water) or rooibos tea with minimal sugar. Magnesium can be administered, as well as adding bicarb to drinking water.

For those experiencing herxing caused by candida (cancer caused by fungus) the “herxheimer reaction candida” can also be effectively treated in this method with fasting remedy as cancer doctor, in addition to continuing the cannabis oil protocol, it is used by many I know on the full extract cannabis oil protocol but with the added benefits of using cannabis oil suppositories in tandem with consuming the oil and other homeopathic remedies.
