    I have HHV-6, CMV, Mycoplasma, and mildly elevated Candida titers and some low T-Cell counts and just started taking 4Life Advanced TF (4 a day). I was feeling much better before this as my Dr. was building me up and detoxing my Liver, etc.. which really helped with energy.

    Initially I felt nothing with the 4Life TF, but a week into it I now have periods of fatigue and headaches and flu-like feeling, but not too bad.

    I am just wondering if all of you herxed with TF or if some of you felt nothing, or mild herxing (like me).

    Also I am considering adding Immune Care 64 as I heard this will work on my CMV, HHV-6 etc.. Do any of you have a preference for TF C or Immune Care 64?

    Also can I add Nutramedix Samento to the mix? My Dr. who is also a lyme specialist suspects I have chronic Lyme (my Igenex test was Equivocal with some positive bands) and wants to start either The Marshall Protocol or other Antibiotics and I wondered whether Samento might be a good alternative option.

    Any advice would be appreciated!

    Thanks!

    Probably isn't mild Herxing, but rather the immune response as the immune system starts realizing that there are foreign visitors in the body. This can go on for some time until the immune system wages all out war on the pathogens. That's when you Herx and it usually involves running a low temperature, profuse sweating, burning or chilling in the torso area, feeling quite sick, and having diarrhea from hell.

    We all react differently, so you may or may not Herx this badly. The fact that you are responding with an immune response means that the TF's are working.

    I took the TF C and TF 200 sold here for three months. During this entire time, I was exhausted, retained fluid, had a sore throat, and my lymph nodes were swollen. It was worse during the first month and then I started to feel better.

    During the three-month period, I Herxed five times, expelling pathogens. My sweat and diarrhea smelled so foul as to leave no doubt that it was toxic dead pthaogens which my body was purging.

    I am off the TF's now and the fluid retention is better. I am feeling much better too. Initially, I could not even take a whole TF capsule as I had such a bad immune response. I had to go really slowly and work up. This may be because I was on the Heparin treatment two and one-half months before starting the TF's.

    Good luck to you.

    Love, Mikie

    I wrote a separate post to you after seeing you talked about this after not having been here for over a year, but you seem to be gone again, so I'm hoping by replying to a post you made a long time ago, I can reach you. Several have bumped up my post to you, so ai know there are others who are also very interesed in you.

    First, I am so sorry to hear that is what you've been diagnosed with!!!

    If you don't mind my asking, where do you live? What made your doctor(s) decide to do that biopsy in the first place? What is the proposed treatment, if any? Can they tell how long you've had it, possibly?

    From everything that I've read about it, that is going to be extremely rough to deal with.

    all my sympathy,
    Victoria
