Another "welcome"! And so great that your husband is doing well.
A colleague just sent me Medical Medium's new book - haven't read it yet but looking forward to it - I've heard great things about
him. Will look for the pod casts.
I also want to echo Girlie's statements about
the testing and the differences between viruses and Lyme & Co. I have a few reactivated/high titers for various viruses and have been on several antivirals (herbal and Rx) for the past few years. I have a long history of them and know very well when they get reactivated and what works for them.
Viral loads can be transmitted along with bacteria from bites and they are OFTEN overlooked by MDs, NDs, and other specialists. The testing is also somewhat inadequate in determining what you're currently fighting, too, but it sometimes helps.
However, I also developed neuroborrelia and have successfully been treating most symptoms away w/ abx. The symptoms are pretty distinct from viral loads - have had 16 yrs going untreated and 4 yrs of treatment to determine what treatments help which conditions…
I think dealing with the viral loads is more critical than dealing with the Lyme & Co infections to start out. The viruses cannot be killed, can only be suppressed and they can quickly overwhelm the system, rendering the immune response very weak. Getting the viral load more manageable before starting Lyme & Co treatment is more beneficial to both.
