    Some information on Boron which is a derivative of Borax (not the laundry soap which is boric acid)...

    http://www.health-science-spirit.com/borax.htm
    Due to their content of boron, borax and boric acid have basically the same health effects, with good antiseptic, antifungal, and antiviral properties but only mild antibacterial action. In plants as well as animals boron is essential for the integrity and function of cell walls, and the way signals are transmitted across membranes.
    Boron is distributed throughout the body with the highest concentration in the parathyroid glands, followed by bones and dental enamel. It is essential for healthy bone and joint function, regulating the absorption and metabolism of calcium, magnesium and phosphorus through its influence on the parathyroid glands. With this boron is for the parathyroids what iodine is for the thyroid.
    Boron deficiency causes the parathyroids to become overactive, releasing too much parathyroid hormone which raises the blood level of calcium by releasing calcium from bones and teeth. This then leads to osteoarthritis and other forms of arthritis, osteoporosis and tooth decay. With advancing age high blood levels of calcium lead to calcification of soft tissues causing muscle contractions and stiffness; calcification of endocrine glands, especially the pineal gland and the ovaries; arteriosclerosis, kidney stones, and calcification of the kidneys ultimately leading to kidney failure. Boron deficiency combined with magnesium deficiency is especially damaging to the bones and teeth.

    I started borax a few days ago. I am taking 1 teaspn in 1 litre water, mixed well then 1 teaspn of that. The first dose had an effect a few hours later which is always a good sign for me, then the second dose taken 2 days later (to build up slowly to 3 teaspn daily) has triggered a herx reaction.

    @brenda do you have any known infections that could be the reason for the herx?

    What brand of borax you using?

    My multimineral has 2mg of Boron chelate in it. I have been taking it for a month now and noticed lowered serotonin and lowered dopamine when I took the multimin too close to the B complex. Will take them some hours apart from now on.
