    In order to be Herxing, one must be killing off pathogens in numbers so large that the body cannot handle it. The symptoms you describe sound like Herxing, but the diet and Guai don't usually kill pathogens like that. That said, however, it is not impossible that the diet and guai are allowing the immune system to function better and it has gone on a killing spree on its own. I've had this happen as my own immune system improves.

    I'm sorry you are feeling so lousy. As mentioned above, it could be the virus which is going around. Take good care of yourself and get plenty of rest as well as drinking lots of fluids. See your doc if you aren't feeling better or are running a fever.

    Love, Mikie
