Alka Seltzer Gold Drink for Herx reactions

Some Lyme doctors recommend that their patients drink the following drink to ease herx reactions (it is better limit herxes by not being too aggressive with treatment, but if you do get a mild herx, this may help to ease it).

2 Alka Seltzer Gold tablets dissolved in a glass of water with a squeeze of lemon juice.

(note – NOT regular Alka Seltzer, but Alka Seltzer gold – this is not available in Australia, many Lyme patients purchase them here – this company has free international shipping to Australia).

If you are unable to get Alka Seltzer Gold, then sometimes lemon juice squeezed into water can give some relief.
