I have sent my blood to Fry lab twice. Heres my confusion. They are saying now that Lyme is a parasite. I know that Envita sends blood to Fry Lab. My question is, Fry is the lab that diagnosed Marthas Vineyard, so why did they sent her home with "handfuls of antibiotics.?" (her words)
Is everyone here as confused about all of this as I am, or is it my Lyme brain that is not comprehending?  D

Certain types of antibiotics can be used to treat some parasitic infections. Flagyll is one example of this - it is a particular type of antibiotic that happens to have anti-parasitic activity. And in the natural healing world, many of the anti-parasitic herbs also have anti-bacterial properties...clove oil is a good example of this.

Another reason is that they don't know what else to throw at this bug, and since many people have improved with antibiotic treatment, that's what is prescribed...

Thanks Razzle. I guess thats where my confusion is, if it is a "bug" (parasite)  I am curious why the antibiotics work. I see what you are saying about the med or herb having ani-bacterial and anti-parasitic qualities. If Fry has indeed discovered the "bug" I hope he can also discover a cure. Wouldnt that be great! Thanks  D
