Re: My Test Results So Far

My Bowen dilution rate was 1:64. For those of you not familiar with the test, they take your blood sample and separate it until they can no longer detect the pathogen visually. So the scale looks like this:


Anything over 1:8, I believe, shows an active Lyme infection.

I also tested negative through Bowen for Babesia and Elichiosis, two common co-infections. I will soon be tested for Bartonella and Mycoplasma, which are also common co-infections with Lyme.

There is also a test panel called the CD57 or the Stricker panel and I suspect I will be getting that one done too in October by my Lyme Literate Nurse Practitioner who works in Dr. S's office. I will keep you posted.

Other tests:

I tested negative for Lyme with a standard western blot because it was sent through a company other than Igenex, who is the only reputable company to do the western blot.

I showed negative for lesions on an MRI testing for MS.

I tested negative for Rheumatoid Arthritis and had negative symptoms for lupus and vasculitis.

Other interesting lab findings:

Blood urea nitrogern (BUN): lower than normal
Total Protein: higher than normal
C-reactive protein: Higher
Eosinophils: high
ESR (sedimintation): high
