If I have any soreness I up the lymphomax intake to the max a day. This flushes out Lymph nodes that get filled up with dead bug toxins.

Here is a link to what has worked for me in that last 9 months of treatment check it out, hope it helps any questions just ask.....

Take care.....Tim i70

Hi Robin-

Swollen, itchy lymph nodes are a sign of too many need to detox and get it out, you're not eliminating fast enough.

Have you checked the side effects of Doxy? This might be from the med itself.. DSECTION=side-effects

Doxycycline (Oral Route)

Along with its needed effects, a medicine may cause some unwanted effects. Although not all of these side effects may occur, if they do occur they may need medical attention.

Check with your doctor immediately if any of the following side effects occur:

aren't half of these 'side effects' also lyme symptoms and herx symptoms? how are you supposed to know where one stops and another starts?

i have been on doxy for 7 days and this just started. if it was an allergic reaction wouldn't it have kicked in sooner?

Hi Robin-

That's where working with your doctor comes in..

I'm not a doctor, and have zero knowledge about antibiotics..

It can be one, it could be both..I don't have any idea.

No question is a bad question when you have one, and your doctor would be happy to answer this for you and would probably want to know of any new symptoms that have come up whether they are from allergic reaction or a lack of detox.

I hope you get some answers..blessings to you.

Thanks Tim.

I have been looking for a Lymph Node detox product.

I have Burbur, Pinella, Milk Thistle.

But i want something specifically for the nodes.

I get achy stabbing nodes. They are never enlarged.
