    Herxing happens when something causes a big killoff of pathogens in the body. If the body cannot excrete these dead critters fast, they will turn toxic in our systems and make us sick. The body will sweat and produce diarrhea to purge this toxic material.

    Herxing feels like the flu but when it's over, one usually feels much better.
