Allison and Kev,
I got bitten in Switzerland, by the BORDER of Germany, and my daughter got bitten first in Belgium.
With ONE bite, we both fell very ill with lyme disease, that took us years to heal with INTENSIVE treatment, literally thousands of substances, herbs, homepathics, frequencies.
Ticks here in Europe may be very contaminated, but good news is that stronger immune systems do NOT fall ill with lyme, despite dozens of bites.
I live in Switzerland, went to Germany for treatment (Germany and Swiss), both are followers of dr. Klinghardt.
If you go see the guy who practices ART in HK, he can PROBABLY test you for ALL infections and COINFECTIONS.
I went to 2 practitioners following dr. Klingh. and BOTH had all slides to test me for coinfections. Both found ALL coinfections during the years I saw them, because I got bitten several times (I am still bitten several times a year, but after treating my IMMUNE SYSTEM for so long, I do not fall ill anymore).
If I were Kev, I would have no doubt to go see the ART practitioner. He will probably do ENERGY TESTING for the pathogens, unless he's a doctor and can send samples abroad (if lyme is not endemic to HK, they won't have the tests, probably).
I never did tests for coinfections here in Europe, but I had all symptoms of Babesiosis, for example. The time I fell ill with lyme and coinfections, NO ONE believed in Babesiosis, Ehrlichiosis, Bartonellosis, etc here in Germany- SWitzerland - Belgium.
I got fully well with dr. K's approach + Buhner's approach (100% SELF TREATMENT, no doctor following me on that) + Chinese herbs (self-treatment) + photon & nosode treatment ( self treatment, following the protocol dr. W. from Germany).
Both daughter and I are lyme free for the last 8 years, but it took us about 4 years to heal, with intensive treatment.
I think dr. Klinghardt's approach helped us out with reinforcing the immune system.
Buhner's herbs were like emergency treatment, they helped me to keep alive (I almost died from lyme, I could no even sit up anymore, so weak I was) while I looked for help. Only after I started Buhner, I found dr. K's practitioners in Switz and Germany.
Read my story, I just posted an 'introduction' here in the forum some days ago. You'll see that I got the EM rash, I had ZERO symptoms then, took 2 weeks doxy, told cured.
Weeks after I started having arthritic symptoms. Then all lyme symptoms, one after another, with hard neck (probably encephalitis / meningitis), air hunger, paralysis, heart symptoms, hormonal imbalances, night sweats, light sensititivity, tinnitus, liver pain, digestive symptoms, etc...
A lot can be done on your own, without help, but with a lot of reading and exchange of information (in case there is no one there to help you)
But if I lived in HK, I would go see the ART / Klinghardt guy, without any doubt. Even if he will test you only energetically, probably, he can prescribe all antimicrobials in herbal forms, or homeopathic forms.
I borrowed a device from one Klingahrdt-practitioner that had all rife frequencies for lyme disease and other diseases for a month and after using it for many days, I actually felt better.
I didn't know what was giving the effect: rife-microcurrents, herbs, homeopathics, acupressure that they were prescribing me, but I did not care. I could walk again, go out for a few hours and bear sunlight again (I could not before, I just kept throwing up), I could even do some light physical work.
Before that, I was not even able to take a shower on my own.
I would really give it a try. Their approach literally changed the way I see treatment and health, in general.
