Alka Seltzer Gold Drink
Some Lyme practitioners 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). Please remember to distinguish between ordinary Alka Seltzer and Alka Selzter Gold. Alka Selzter Gold must be purchased from overseas.
Where to purchase?
Two choices to purchase internationally:
- Many Lyme patients purchase Alka Seltzer Gold from VitaCost which also offers free international shipping to Australia.
- Alternatively, you can purchase Alka Selzter Gold from iHerb. Remember though to use the iHerb Gift Code (NGM198) which provides a small donation from your purchase to the LDAA.
Directions and alternatives
- 2 x Alka Seltzer Gold tablets dissolved in a glass of water with a squeeze of lemon juice.
Alternatively, if you are unable to get Alka Seltzer Gold, then sometimes lemon juice squeezed into water can give some relief.
