    Herxing is short for the Herxheimer effect. Basically, it refers to the cluster of symptoms associated with the die off of infectious bacteria. These symptoms can include headache, blood shot eyes, lethargy, etc.... Just for fun, you may want to do a search at this site for "Olive Leaf Extract", especially those posts put up by "Plantscaper." I have had some measure of success using OLE, by the way....
