    I have heard that some people have extremely bad migraines during herxes with treatment by the ABX and/or heparin, or even olive leaf extract..Can some of you experienced people in regard to this, let me know how you get through that..is it mainly detoxing with water, or does Imitrex (regular treatment for migraines) work, or what? Since I can have extremely bad migraines, I need advice..some have sent me to the E.R. I have started the Olive Leaf Extract and I think I am herxing because of that with a real bad migraine...I need to be forearmed..Is there a good detox cocktail?

    try blending a whole lemon with about 3c. water. Add 1tbl of olive oil. I cut up the lemon and put peel seeds and all in the blender with water. After blending run through a strainer. Add the olive oil and put drink in fridge and drink throughout the day. shaking it up first. This drink will help give your immune system a boost. Keep us posted on your olive leaf protocol. I too am considering the abx therapy but would like to try natural first. good luck.

    But headaches can be part of the Herx Effect. Sorry I can't help. I usually just use OTC pain meds for the headaches as Morphine can make headaches worse. Except for during Herxing, since being on the ABX, my migraine-type headaches have gone away.

    Love, Mikie

    the virgin olive oil is essential. If you do not have any just drink the lemon juice until you can get to the store. I read in an article by Garth Nicolson about abx treatment that when doing this treatment or the natural treatment as you are it is very benifical to drink the whole lemon/olive oil drink. This should be used during therapy to boost the immune system to prevent relapse. Hope this helps. Keep us posted.
