Herx?...or just plain worse?

    I know that some supplements, etc., can cause an unpleasant "herxing," which is interpreted as an indication that we need that substance, perhaps in small doses at first. But how do you differentiate between herxing and and a bad reaction that shows you shouldn't be taking this substance at all?

    If something makes me worse, I stop taking it. But recently someone said, "Oh, you're herxing. That means you need to keep taking it." How do you know that's the case?

    Thanks,
    Suze
