There’s your problem, Jd. You didn’t experience the Herxheimer reaction, you were experiencing Candida symptoms. I’ve posted before that the symptoms largely overlap, so sometimes you have to dissect your day to figure out which it is.
You fed the Candida sugar (carrots = starch = sugar), plus you added antibiotics to the mix because the chicken wasn’t organic. The antibiotics, even from animal meat, have a detrimental effect on your infestation. All of this together is enough to stir the Candida up, which equals Candida symptoms.
Were the duck and chicken that you prepared yourself organic? If not, this just added to your problem.
Are carrots on the GAPS diet? If so, you should take a second look at the diet for other hidden potential dangers.
