What is a Herxheimer Reaction?
The technical definition for a Herxheimer Reaction (i.e., herxing or die off) is the release of endotoxins from the destroyed cell walls of the bacteria responsible for Lyme Disease, Borrelia Burgdorferi, that causes an additional inflammatory response (i.e., debilitating physical and mental state) contingent to the number of endotoxins released, which is directly correlated to the amount of Lyme bacteria killed (i.e., lysed).
The term “herxing” is also used to define the detoxing symptoms often associated with releasing stored fat deposits when fasting or doing a rapid fat loss protocol, such as the medically supervised, prescription HCG Diet Plan.
How Does the Biohacker Bath Help with Weight Loss?
The truth is, this bath won’t magically burn fat and make you lose weight. However, A British biochemist at the University of Birmingham, Rosemary Waring, found out that sulfate and magnesium are absorbed into the skin during the Epsom bath.
The levels of these two minerals in the blood increase after you soak in the bath for some time, and they start their work of eliminating environmental toxins from the body. They simultaneously also heal various other ailments of the skin, thereby making you feel relaxed and de-stressed.
Poor absorption of nutrients and emotional eating are considered the main culprits behind weight gain. When the toxins are expelled from the body, you feel more energetic and relaxed and are less likely to binge on food. This lowers your chances of straying from your diet, and your metabolism starts working at its best, leading to significant weight reduction.
This bath is my number one go to Diet 911 Diet Rescue Hack. Whenever I embark on a very low calorie diet (VLCD) like the HCG Diet Plan, or my monthly 2-4 day water-only fast, I take one of these baths every night. It helps will all of the uncomfortable side-effects and never fails to get me through to the next day.
How is Hydrogen Peroxide Oxygen Therapy?
Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) is a highly oxidizing agent. In hydrogen peroxide baths oxygen is released when hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) becomes water (H2O) and the oxygen released is absorbed by the skin.
The extra oxygen in the blood serum can be used to support the body in healing and to break down (oxidize) toxins. In detoxification, a hydrogen peroxide bath can help to cleanse and purify the skin.
The biggest elimination organ of the body which will make the skin more effective in elimination of toxins.
Hydrogen peroxide baths are indicated for detoxification, inflammatory, autoimmune and degenerative diseases and cancers. Small amounts of hydrogen peroxide can activate several genes that are responsible for clearing tissue debris and improves venous and lymphatic circulation.
Nathaniel Altman, Author of the book Oxygen Healing Therapies defines:
“Although used by an estimated ten million patients in Europe since the early 1960’s, the therapeutic use of medical ozone and hydrogen peroxide (technically known as “bio-oxidative therapies”) is largely a mystery to North Americans.
Hailed as a safe, effective and low-cost treatment for a wide spectrum of diseases- including candida, cancer, heart problems and HIV- related infections- in Europe, proponents feel that they can go far in resolving America’s health care crisis.
However, physicians who have tried to utilize these therapies in this country are often harassed by local medical societies and threatened with loss of license. As a result, every year hundreds of patients have been forced to seek out physicians in Germany, Russia and even Cuba where these therapies are an accepted part of the medical mainstream.
In the US, ozone treatments, such as Major Ozone Hemotherapy, mHBOT, 10 Pass Ozone, are extremely expensive and not covered by health insurance. Sadly this excludes these powerful healing treatments as viable options for most people. Hydrogen peroxide baths offer an affordable alternative for anyone owning a bath tub.

- 2c. Epsom Salt, Dead Sea Salt or Himalayan Salt
- 2 c. Baking Soda
- 1-2 c. 35% Food grade Hydrogen Peroxide
WHY?: Epsom Salt: Clears lymphatic congestion, induces profuse sweating pulling toxin-laden fluids out of the body; 35% Hydrogen Peroxide: Increases Oxygenation and Detox. Baking Soda: Detoxifies and alkalizes the body.
HOW?: Do to the rapid detoxification and oxygenation, you may experience the very common symptom of dizziness or nausea, if this happens DO NOT stand up. Immediately add cold water to the bath to reduce your body temperature, drain the tub and wait until dizziness subsides.
- Run a bath until there is about 4” of the hottest water you can tolerate in the tub. Add 2 c. Salt, 2 c. Baking Soda, & 1-2 c. 35% Hydrogen Peroxide (Note: Be extremely careful handling the undiluted peroxide as it will burn your skin at full strength. Use latex gloves or wash your hands immediately if any peroxide splashes on your skin.)
- Step into the bath and stir with your feet until salt is dissolved. .
- Sit down and begin to add a few more inches of hot water to your tolerance level. As the water cools continue to add more hot water to keep the bath as hot as tolerable until you’ve reached a soak time of 15-20 minutes. (Note: If you are highly toxic you may need to take shorter baths and build up to this time. Listen to your body.)
- When soak time is completed, drain the tub while remaining prone in tub. Elevate your feet and arms to assist circulation and removal to toxins. .
- Stand up slowly by transferring to hands and knees, then kneeling to standing. It’s normal to feel woozy so it’s imperative to take your time. (Note: if you’re feeling extremely dizzy or nauseous, turn the shower on full cold and lie down under the cold shower water, this usually stops the uncomfortable detox symptoms rapidly.) .
- To end the bath therapy, stand under a 100% cold water shower for 1 minute.
HACK: This bath should be taken as hot as is tolerable, for a soak time of 15-20 minutes. Peroxide gives a surge of oxygen to detox, draws toxins out of your body and pushes them to the lymphatic system.
WARNING: Do not omit step 4, it’s essential to shock your body with 1 minute of the coldest water you can tolerate immediately following the hot bath so the toxins don’t sit in your lymph nodes.
