The Detoxification systems

Lymphatic System:(Immune System) Lymph channels and lymph nodes.

Gastrointestinal System: liver, gallbladder, colon, and whole GI tract- expels neurotoxins through feces. 

Urinary System: kidneys, bladder and urethra. Expels neurotoxins as urine.

Respiratory System: lungs, bronchial tubes, throat, sinuses, and nose. Neurotoxins are expelled through expelled air.

Skin and dermal: Expel neurotoxins through sweat, sebaceous glands and tears.

New
To remove spirochete neuro toxins permanently.

Jarisch-Herxheimer Response
Herx,Detox reaction, Healing crisis,Herxheimer reaction,Die-off syndrome 

Lyme spirochetes/Borrelia live out their lives in the human body
Here they feed,reproduce,and then they die. When Sprirochetes die the cell they have lived in also dies. The cell is filled with toxic wastes accumulated from the pathogen having lived in it. 
The Die Off 
When the pathogen dies naturally or from an eradicating agent their toxic waste, including the dead cell they lived in creates debris known as die-off. This waste falls into the interstitial fluid and is drawn into the lymphatic pathways to be filtered through the nodes and toxins continue on through pathways into the detoxification systems

In a zoonotic infected body,
the die off has gradually been plugging up the Lymphatic system pathways. The infections have hijacked the auto immune cells. The spirochetes especially have thickened the fluids, including the blood, thus also causing a sluggish liver. The digestive system is in part-time paralysis or just plain sluggish. The sweat glands are impaired. The lungs aren't as efficient. All the detoxifying systems have been sabotaged by the the zoonotics and their neurotoxins. Therefore, when in the eradication process, it doesn't take too much for the die off to quickly plug the pathways. 

During the eradication process when there's an over-abundance of sludge to clear away and more die off continues to be created with an eradication agent then the pathways quickly become blocked, detoxification systems get loaded with toxins going nowhere and more die off continues to fall into the interstitial fluid, but it is now trapped.  This will cause toxins to inflame the tissues all over the body,some will become lodged in areas of weakened tissues and cause pain and inflammation. The muscles will feel tired and sore.The toxins will recirculate in the blood stream throughout the body. This will continue until serious detoxification is undertaken or the eradication agent is stopped to give the body time to naturally detoxify.   

These toxins (poisons) left lingering in the body will cause flu-like symptoms. This "sick" is called a Herxheimer response.

"Jarisch-Herxheimer response" is also 
known as "Herxheimer response, reaction or effect." Nicknamed "Herx". Also  known as "The detox reaction," "the healing crisis" or "the die-off syndrome". 
Anytime the body is overloaded with die off toxins and the detoxification systems cannot keep up with the demand, the body will become saturated with toxins. As the body tries to deal with the "toxic poison" these poisons will manifest flu-like symptoms. The person will feel uncomfortable,"out of sorts", "not well", feel ill, sometimes very ill,or so very ill as to require medical care to prevent organ failure. 

For a Lyme or zoonotic infected person, he or she naturally experiences some die off twenty-four hours a day as each bacteria's life cycle comes to a close. The simple addition of extra vitamin C, eating lots of citrus fruits, soaking up the sun... all will increase die off and it will easily back up sluggish detoxification systems and cause a herx reaction. 

Lingering toxins in the body cause mini herxes. But, when we decide to use an eradication agent that targets the Lyme, such as antibiotics or Lyme frequencies, and then along with that we add antibacterial therapies that target Bartonella bacteria or/and protozoan's, and then take Moringa that also kills viruses - we will experience an excessive amount of die off loaded with toxins.We will experience a severe JARISCH-HERXHEIMER reaction!

A severe Herxheimer reaction (lasting many days)is a sign: 
It is a sign of poor elimination through the lymphatic and liver pathway's, poor organ support, or/and poor treatment of the body by its owner, or following poor advice from the health practitioner(s) or failing to control the amount of die off we are creating for the condition our body is in and able to handle and not allowing the body a break so it can do natural detoxification.  When self-treating we are our own practitioner's and must be careful not to get ourselves in jeopardy or kill ourselves before we kill the the zoonotic infections! 
Symptoms of a Herxheimer reaction:
The immune system reacts to the poison. The body, in its quest to save its life, will try to rid itself of the poisons by any way it can. During a Herx we may experience mild symptoms or have some of the following: 
  • A worsening of symptoms (the feeling worse before getting better)
  • Headache, fogginess, feeling off.
  • Eyes: irritated,redness, watering,itching, double or blurred vision
  • Ringing in the ears.Stabbing pain in ears.
  • Skin: scars start itching, pimples, itching, rash, flushing. Flushed face. 
  • Swollen glands.Cold extremities.
  • Morning mucus, Sore throat, nasty coughing fits.Sinus stuffed.
  • Feverishness. Chills. Perspiration/sweats. Increased mucus secretions. Inflammation.
  • Gastrointestinal disturbances; nausea, vomiting, diarrhea,constipation,bloating, stomach pains, loss of appetite,difficulty swallowing. 
  • Joint and muscle aches and pains, tight muscles,cramps, and poor muscle coordination. 
  • Sharp pains,shooting pains,stabbing pains all over 
  • Elevated heart rate.
  • Irritability,restlessness,tiredness,dizziness, and weakness.
  • Mental depression, anger, sadness, despair,  anxiety, fear. Suppressed memories sometimes arise.
  • Fatigue. Insomnia.
  • WARNING!
    A big Herxheimer reaction tells us...STOP! Stop the bacteria killing! We must give the detoxification systems time to catch up on their jobs. We give them time to filter out all the poisons/toxins/biotoxins/sludge and to eliminate most of the die off before adding more to their load. 

    It is dangerous to do big time kill when our detoxification systems are impaired(and they are, in most cases, if we harbour the Bb bacteria or many zoonotic infections.)
    In the Danger Zone:
    A severe acute reaction will cause a large release of histamine that manifests swelling of the neck areas and closure of the airway. This should be considered life threatening and must be treated at once with a particular medication. * It is beyond our ability to handle at home. A drop in blood pressure, along with skin changes due to dilation of the blood vessels also may need aggressive treatment as it can lead to cardiovascular collapse. 
    Severe breathing difficulties; chest, lung or throat constriction; significant swelling; or other severe symptoms begs for more than home detoxification treatment.
