Person #1 - used a version of the Marshall protocol along with diet changes - mainly minocycline - I believe it took him about 3 years

Person #2 - was treated with antibiotics for about 6 months - she started treating about 6-8 months after symptoms started (can't remember exactly) Protocol I believe was doxycycline and azithromycin (only!!)

Person #3 - Caught it quite early on - within a few months - and I was told she did two 'rounds' of antibiotics. The person who passes this info to me didn't know which ones.

No, testing can't be relied on to tell us if we're in remission.

The WB only shows if we're producing antibodies. A negative doesn't mean we don't still have it.

A PCR shows the dna of the bacteria in the sample. But a negative means that in that particular sample - there wasn't any dna. It could be that you have it - just not in that relatively small blood sample.

I know another lady - in her mid 60's that treated for 3 years (or 3 1/2 ?) and she has been in remission for over a year now..and is on a pretty strict diet...no relapse yet.

There are also lots of success stories with forum members. The ones I mentioned are people in my geographical location.

Mike - is it an Igenex WB test?


To be honest girlie i don't know. My wife wouldn't let me go back with her and she didn't ask. I wanted to go back to ensure she got tested but my wife was afraid i would embarrass her because i told her we weren't leaving there without orders for a lymes test no matter what. I feel guilty. She's lying down now with a headache, sweaty, and dizzy. I had her start my doxycyline just in case to get a head start on it until we get some results.

Aww, so sorry Mike. You're just wanting to help her...

But, she's probably not in any mood to here/see anything confrontational...I get it.
