This evening I was taking a shower and felt cold so without thinking I just made the shower nice and steamy. I spent a good 15-20 minutes in there and during the end I felt very faint. I got out and not long after it was a downhill spiral. I got pretty sick from the shower, and it took me a while to figure out what was happening. I laid in bed thinking I was catching the flu and really confused where it came from. That's when my mom brought to my attention how it happened after my very hot shower which could cause me to herx. It all made sense.
Lucky for me, I have discovered a great arsenal in the fight of Lyme disease. It is an herbal drop called Burbur, and it's made by Nutrimedix. This drop actually goes in and drains your kidneys, liver & lymphatic system very quickly of toxins. It's all natural & comes from a plant discovered in Peru.
When you get a Herx you put 8-10 drops in 1/2 cup (4oz) of water and drink every 15 minutes. Within an hour or two you will be over the herx, or it will be greatly reduced. A herx that could last 1-2 days is MAJORLY downsized with the aid of this. It is honestly an amazing supplement I HIGHLY recommend to any Lyme patients going through treatment!!
I am now getting on a protocol of using the Burbur 3 times a day at a maintenance dose. This way I am stopping the toxin buildup before it can become a serious problem.
You can buy the Burbur HERE.
If you also want to detox your nervous system then I suggest buying the Burber & Pinella combo drops, which also includes Pinella as a nerve stem detox. I add in the Pinella on days when my nervous system symptoms are at the forefront of my herx.
I hope it can bring someone else relief & also warn everyone to be careful at which temperature you take your showers!
I noticed this page gets viewed a lot, so I wanted to add an update. Since the original post I have used Burbur as part of my daily life. I can't go without it. If I could only keep 1 item in my arsenal it would hands down be the Burbur. I do about 3 cups a day, sometimes more if I am feeling like the herx is pretty intense. Showers are more bearable now, but spending time in the heat of the sun certainly brings on a herx. Since I know that now I start to detox immediately after coming inside with the Burbur and it makes a world of difference. I hope this can bring relief to anyone else!
Burbur works great also to detox Candida, so if that is your issue that its a great item there as well.
I have a full Detox Guide which is dedicated to explaining all the methods and ranking them by Most Gentle to Least Gentle. You can find it HERE.
