    Many of us are on, or have been on, Heparin and it intensifies the effects of ABX and AV's. The Heparin can, by itself, can cause a Herx as it removes fibrin and exposes pathogens to the immune system.

    Transfer factors can produce some of the most intense Herxing and immune system response.

    When you say, "It has to get worse before it gets better," you are describing Herxing to a tee. I always feel so much better once the Herxing diarrhea has passed (pun intended :)

    Love, Mikie
