Herx/Flair Solutions

Just making a reference page for things that may help ease up a herx.

Helpful Drinks:

  • Dr. Naram’s “Herx-away”.  This has been going around on FaceBook among various Lymie’s….  Add to tea or juice: 1/2 c water, 1 tsp cumin, 1/2 tsp coriander, 1/8 tsp cardamom
  • Variation on “Herx-away”:  Green tea with: cumin, coriander and fennel. 1/2tsp each of the 3, whole seeds.  “very soothing on the tummy”  Thanks to CM.
  • CM also commented:  “I used to drink raspberry, nettle and fennel tea and that helped a lot as well.”
  • Lemon/EVOO liver cleanse:  Place all ingredients in blender.  1 cup water; 1TBSP extra virgin olive oil; 1 lemon (washed, cut in half and de-seeded) juice half with fork, put the other half of the lemon in the blender.  Blend until a light white-yellow emulsion.  Strain if you want, and drink.  Best on empty stomach for greatest detox effects.  Will help you to absorb nutrients better if taken with a meal.  From:  Immune Restoration Handbook by Conrad LeBeau and C. Konlee
  • Kombucha, especially if there is a craving for sweets.

Helpful Therapies:

  • Sauna, Finnish or FIR Infrared
  • Hyperbaric Oxygen, mild or deep
  • Acupuncture or acupressure
  • Cold Laser and other light-based detoxification therapies
  • Ionic FootBath
  • Coffee Enema
  • Colon Hydrotherapy
  • Warm bath in:  epsom salts and/or essential oils; epsom salts and hydrogen peroxide; baking soda and hydrogen peroxide.  Ginger is also beneficial in Baking soda.  Clay Baths.  People make various blends.  Will post “recipes.”
  • Heating pads (Hopefully infrared!)

Helpful Supplements:

  • Clays to bind toxins, French Green Clay and Zeolite are pretty popular
  • Activated Charcoal to bind toxins
  • Alkaseltzer Gold, to quickly alkalize the body.
  • Burbur for the kidneys
  • Parsley for the kidneys
  • Milk Thistle for the liver
  • Pinella for brain-nerve
  • Heel Detox Kit:  Lymphomyosot for lymphatics, Nux Vomica Homaccord for the liver, and Berberis Bulgaris Homaccord for the kidneys
  • Chlorella, broken-cell, to bind toxins and increase glutathione
  • Turmeric for pain

Other Helpful Things:

  • Be sure to drink enough water!
  • Try slicing a clove of garlic into thin slices.  Use medical tape to tape the slices over painful joints and organs during a herx.  It helps me tremendously!!
  • BioFreeze on painful and hot joints/muscles.
  • Use EFT.  This can reduce the severity of symptoms, and sometime resolve them.  Even if you don’t feel much like an emotion is attached to the issue…just address the issue itself with EFT (eg. fatigue, confusion, dizziness, pain).  If there is an emotion involved, it will come up.  If there isn’t, it still helps.
  • Music, if tolerated.  Sometimes it can calm you down.  Sometimes you want strong music to give you the strength and willpower to keep going….  It can be a major help.
  • Instruct your body on what its mission is.
  • Send love to the areas that hurt instead of focussing on the pain.
  • Talk to your ‘chetes and other critters.  Seriously, tell them that they don’t belong in you.  Visualize the critters.  Release the anger at what they’ve done to your life.  Sometimes you may get the feeling that they are lost inside of you, just trying to survive.  Tell them to leave; tell them to leave using the least injurious route.  And enforce this with the threat that if they don’t go, your immune system is going in and dealing with them.  Also visualize immune cells going after the critters, with your body winning!  Also visualize your detoxification pathways working as they should…

      I prefer to do kinesiological testing first, but generally Chlorella and Heel Detox Kit are fine together. Sorry for not replying sooner, I have not been on the blog in well over a year – life. Hope you are doing better.
