This is also a topic I wonder about
. Why is testing so much easier/definitive in animals, and yet so much more complex in humans? I'm just not buying some of the arguments given to me. I really feel this is something that should explored further. What are we truly missing here? What can we gain?
This also touches upon the high percentage of pathogens in pets but not necessarily correlate to those who are sick from it. I know I've been flamed on this board in the past for this, but it doesn't stop me from sharing it anyways.
I am positive for lyme borrelia in my blood, but yet, I don't have many symptoms at all for it. This brings up the topic of if you have the bacteria, does that immediately mean you have lyme disease? I've read arguments on both side of this. We all know we have staph on our skin/etc, but we aren't treating for staph infections (but it really could become a problem if you have cut and turns into an infection, for example).
I've treated for lyme with herbals for numerous months, and I saw no improvement in my symptoms. Yet, I treated for yeast, and that definitely improved many of my main symptoms. I treat for adrenal fatigue, and I see positive results for the fatigue (unfortunately, I react negatively to those supplements so I can't stay on them and am still looking for alternatives).
Such interesting topics to explore and discuss more!
Kid#1: Extremely sick for several years, very difficult to treat, but doing great now!
Kid#2: Still sick now despite being treated for years but doing better (not well yet).
Kid#3: Generally good but relapsing off/on.
Me: Adv Labs positive 2016 (suspected I passed to my kids)-not as sick as others, mostly battling fatigue and yeast issues (heart/kidney issues resolved)
Treating with herbals now.
