.....herxing? Not sure if I spelled that right!!
It's one of the 'permanent sticky' posts at the top of the board.
Thanks. Never thought of checking that list.
It is the sick feeling we get when toxins etc are released within our systems. I'd do a search for a "real" definition, mine is rather basic and not necessarily accurate!
Herxing is an increase in symptoms due to the die off of an infectious agent such as bacteria which then release toxins.
This can happen, for instance, when you take antibiotics. Initially, some symptoms can worsen, indicating that the antibiotics are killing bacteria. A herx is temporary and then you may feel better.
