I use citracidal GSE and have to start very slow. I work my way up to 4 drops 2x a day.

I notice a herx right away, but I'm also doing the samento drops, so.....! I guess I could be

herxing because of the samento. Never taken just GSE.

Aren't you glad I answered? ,!

Either way I herx right away on GSE and samento.

I have increased my GSE from 125, 250, and 375 mg/day. I do not herx on it.

Pampe did you herx on it previously? Well I started yesterday I took 10 drops, 5 drops, 15 drops;

1 hour after 1st dose mild herx (achey muscles and joints). Today I took 15drops, 15drops, 15drops: no herx.

The bottle says you cant take over 15drops 3x a day. Did your LLMD say it was ok. I have cats claw pills,

i wonder if they work the same as extract.

I have not herxed on anything either and I have had it ll! Currently on IV Rocephin, Flagyl, and Zithromax. ???

Nothing on Byron White, GSE, Oil of Oregano, Coconut oil, Artemininsin, Cryptolepis...... The list goes on.

The only thing that made me feel terrible was LDN. I was too weak to even lift my head off the pillow after one dose. I stopped after the third day because I have kids and I need to be able to care for them. NI read this is because it was "waking up" my immune system but I guess I may never find out.

what is LDN?? Well I have herxed before, just not much recently. I gues my overall load is reall low.

or everything is in cysts form, but even then the flagyl would give me a herx. Well today i was

really fatigue so i guess theres my herx.

Low DOSE NALTREXONE (LDN) HAS BEEN A LIFE SAVER FOR ME.

MY IMMUNE SYSTEM HAS BEEN BOOSTED AND THE PAIN AND FATIGUE ARE MUCH LESS.

THAT MAY BE A PART OF WHY I DON'T HERX???

I take LDN and I herxed as soon as I started abx. So I don't think LDN prevents herxing. It does help my fatigue though.

I understand that cyst busters (GSE) should be pulsed and not taken all the time so

I plan to change that but I will continue the LDN I have been on for 2 1/2 years.

Once again, we are all diifferent.Kissing
