Healing Lyme
Increased babesia sweats – herx?
with Stephen Harrod Buhner, master herbalist

Dear Stephen,
I have been diagnosed with babesia and have had periodic mild sweats over the years. I’ve been taking cryptolepis for about two weeks and I’m now having stronger sweats about twice a day. Is this a good thing? Does it mean that the babesia is being brought into the forefront and attacked by my immune system? Thanks so much.

Stephen’s response:
Well, you got me on that one. First time I have heard of it. Sorry.

    I have this exact reaction as well. Ever since I started taking cryptolepsis, I get flushed about 30 minutes afterward my dose for a short while. This happens like clock work and my doctor says that means it’s working and helping to knock back babesia. My LLMD implied this is a well known reaction…

    I’ve had that, and it sounds like a herx to me.
