False Information About Die–Off Symptoms & Herxheimer Reactions
For the complete article see False Information About Die-Off Symptoms & Herxheimer Reactions. The term “die-off symptoms” is commonly used to describe symptoms and reactions that occur when large numbers of candida/fungi, bacteria or other pathogens (disease causing bugs) are killed off in the body that releases high numbers of toxins into the system at one time because they are being killed off by antibiotic, antibacterial, antiviral or antifungal drugs and non-drug natural substances such as garlic, oil of oregano, coconut oil, grapefruit seed extract, olive leaf extract, goldenseal herb, Pau d’arco tea, etc.
Such symptoms are described as “flu-like” symptoms, however, “flu-like” symptoms are actually cleansing reactions created “as needed” by the body to protect itself from the effects of poisons/toxins, i.e. to detoxify itself, see How Our Bodies React to Poison (Toxins) for the list of symptoms and reactions.
Also “die-off symptoms” are called “Herxheimer reactions”, also called Herx reactions. However, die-off symptoms and “Herxheimer reactions” “assume” that the Germ Theory of Disease is true, so the medical field had to fabricate (make up) such terms in order to make us believe their drugs were actually killing off bugs, however, that isn’t at all true!
The term “Herxheimer reaction” was fabricated by Karl Herxheimer (1861-1942) and Adolf Jarisch (1850-1902), also known as the “Jarisch-Herxheimer reaction.” The reason the term was created was to describe what occurs when large quantities of toxins are released into the body as viruses, bacteria, candida, etc. die-off when treated by antibiotics or antifungal drugs, etc. that “supposedly” kills them off.
“They claim” antibiotics cause bugs to die, i.e. kill them off, which causes them to release large numbers of toxins faster than the body can remove the toxins by natural detoxification processes. They also claim: “Such reactions includes fever, chills, headache, muscle pain, cold-like and flu-like symptoms with increased mucus, and an increase in skin rashes and eruptions.”
But note this! They also say “The intensity of the reaction reflects the intensity of inflammation present.”NOTE: That statement is your biggest clue to the truth! The truth IS Inflammation and Infection are Natural Healing Processes created by the body in order to heal and detoxify itself!
The Truth About Die-Off Symptoms & Herxheimer Reactions
The truth is that die–off symptoms and Herxheimer Reactions are not caused by bugs being killed off or dying. What is actually happening in the body is in the statement above, i.e. “The intensity of the reaction reflects the intensity of inflammation present.” The fact IS that inflammation is a natural process created by the body in order to heal and detoxify itself.
Such symptoms and reactions are “NOT caused” by killing off bugs at all. They are created by the body in response to toxins/poisons like it reacts to any kinds of toxins or poisons, therefore such reactions are because of being poisoned!
The body creates symptoms and reactions (inflammation) in response to all toxins/poisons, i.e. drugs, over-the-counter medicines, vaccines, mercury fillings in teeth, heavy metals, pesticides, herbicides, and chemicals in foods, personal care and cleaning products, etc.
In other words, the body works towards minimizing the damage caused by toxins/poisons such as antibiotics and other drugs by creating inflammation in order to protect itself and minimize the toxic effects of poisons.
