Possible Complication 1: Herxheimer (Herx) Reactions
Monolaurin is very good at killing bacteria and the Enzymes in dissolving biofilms. As we said, we recommend taking a few weeks or more to build up to a full dosage. When you kill bacteria and dissolve biofilms, the normal job of the liver, kidneys, and skin is to filter the dead bacteria and toxins out of the blood.
Occasionally, the bacteria are killed faster than the body can filter them out (or, a person has an extra sensitive body). The body sees the dead cells as an invasion and calls up the immune system. The person can then experience some ‘gunky’ flu-like symptoms called ‘Herx’ reactions.
One bottle of the Heavy Metal Detox can help reduce these symptoms. Or, perhaps even better, a person can simply go at a more gradual buildup speed up to a full dose. This allows the organs plenty of time to filter the first rush of bacteria and toxins out of the body.

Possible Complication 2: Low Stomach Acid
It happens occasionally (especially as we age) that a person has have low stomach acid. It is one reason that some people have trouble digesting certain foods they had no problem with when younger. If people are not getting the results they should, or see any pellets in their stools, low stomach acid is often the problem.
Fortunately, it is fairly easy to resolve. Three of the nationally known doctors we follow, independently, had the same recommendation – Zypan.
