Thanks Traveler and Girlie.....
So let me ask, because I am getting confused on something......
You said my daughter will likely test negative (I assume by diagnostic standards) but there could still be some band evidence? Or do you mean, if she has had this two decades, she likely will test negative as in not even anything on bands will show up? As in results will be each band spelled out with a big negative next to it.
Provoking a positive, I am guessing, means olive leaf? I just can't do that to her right now. And I am still battling parasite cleansing and need to function so don't want to throw it on top of it.
I know I read a thread somewhere where I think you (Traveler) said you tested positive only after a year of Lyme treatment? So here go those thoughts again...........should I just wait? I don't want to, but it sounds like the odds of my daughter and me, if we have Lyme, testing positive is like the odds of winning the lottery.
I mean, I COULD proceed with parasitic stuff, then Lyme treatment for awhile and see how we respond?
I don't know how I am going to respond if western blots are both 100% negative with no band reactions, etc. on both of us.
I think my brain is going to explode.
Ok......so then a scenario is do parasitic cleansing on us both (assess any changes).......then in a few months, do some lyme treatment on us both (assess any changes) and then do olive leaf on us both for 5 weeks.....THEN TEST? This would mean postponing Igenex for 6 months but treating like we have Lyme. In this scenario it would likely increase our odds of provoking a response, if indeed Lyme has been a hitchhiker all these years?
Of course, I want to just jump in and test.....but maybe I shouldn't?
Again, can you get good "band information" even if not enough to be deemed 100% positive? I could live with that for the new clues the bands bring to the table. But if you are saying we likely will show zippo, nada, nothing on bands either after all of these years (even if we have lyme), then maybe this truly isn't worth it right now?
