Welcome! I am an old timer here and was sick for over 10 years and I am all better so please don't lose hope, lyme is not a life sentence. I was repeatedly tested by Quest, Labcorp, etc. and all my tests kept coming back negative, I learned that when Quest, Labcorp etc. make their lyme probes they use rabbit antigens from 2 strains of Lyme.
IgeneX uses samples from human lyme patients from all over the United States and Europe and from patients who had early, middle and late stage lyme. Also, when a western blot is done there is an acidic gel that is used to separate out the bands.
Most labs use a 10% gel. IgeneX uses a 12.5% gel so they get better separation of the bands, thus IgeneX is the most accurate lab we have in the U.S.
Anyway, I became better using alternative medicine, not antibiotics and have been in remission for over 3 years now. I did heavy detoxing, internal cleanses, building up my immune system, dealing with emotional problems, etc. I still continue to detox and eat healthy as well as exercise.
I hope this helps and you will get better! Ask questions, do research, and trust your gut feelings.
It's all about the Immune System mixed with a large dose of Positive Thinking and Daily Detoxing
