I found this while searching for Babs stuff. This is what Dr. Sch says about the WB. He's written tons of articles on Lyme and everything else. I do not know anything about his reputation and knowledge, so I have included a link to this article. Hoping that those of you who are more educated can speak as to his knowledge and reputation.
'Many patients and health care workers are profoundly ignorant about how to interpret a Western Blot. If a person has one "fingerprint band," they have Lyme disease. These specific bands are the 18, 23, 25, 31, 34, 39, 83 or 93. The lab can be a junk lab that invests nothing to optimize their kit, but if one of these bands is positive even once—Lyme is present'.
Here is the article about why treatments fail, it has a lot of info. Again, please let us know if we can/should put our faith in this Dr:
Bit Mother's Day 2007: Lyme, Babesia microti, hypothyroidism, EBV, HHV6, Parvovirus B19, low adrenals &misc other hormones, depression, anxiety, more of the above.
What don't these nasty bugs cause?
CD57= 60, so we're in pretty good shape.
