If you have been doing any detoxification and cleansing of your body you might be experiencing a Herxheimer reaction. You’re probably thinking to yourself whatever that is it sounds horrible. I will admit that experiencing a Herxheimer reaction is no day at the park. The Herxheimer reaction is a detoxification reaction in the body when viruses, bacteria, fungus, and parasites are being killed off. The good news is that you got them! The bad news is that when the body cannot eliminate the toxins fast enough you may start to have flu-like symptoms such as extreme fatigue, headache, joint and muscle pain, sweating, chills, nausea, sore throat, itchy skin as well as skin rashes. These symptoms can be from a Herxheimer reaction as long as everything else is ruled out.
If you have diabetes (Type 1 or Type 2) your blood sugars will increase from the buildup of the toxins circulating in the body. In addition, detoxification is beneficial for the body but also stressful at the same time. Did you know that the Herxheimer reaction is much worse when the body is extremely toxic and the treatment is very effective? Yes, and the actual health and support the body is getting will make a major difference too. Even though you may think the treatment is not working; you might be surprised that the Herxheimer reaction is a sign that the body is busy restoring itself back to good health. It’s a healing process and does not happen overnight. If you’re experiencing the Herxheimer reaction please talk with your Holistic Doctor.
Have you heard of Burbur? Burbur is an extract produced from the leaves of Desmodium molliculum, a perennial plant that is harvested between 1,000 meters to 3,000 meters above sea level in Peru. The herb Burbur is very effective in aiding detoxification of the liver, kidneys, lymphatic system and ground matrix. What’s incredible is that in many cases a significant healing crisis (Herxheimer reaction) can be reduced or eliminated with the frequent use of Burbur.
