I hadn't heard of this before...someone posted it on Facebook. I thought we had to send the ticks to Igenex..or another lab?

Oh my! Can I just use our own blood instead of the ticks for the test?

Wouldn't that be something for a home test someday??!?!?!?
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.

I'd like to send ticks to a volcano, all of them.

I tried it. It bled through and ran ... like an unreadable pregnancy stick. Not sure if it was same brand but same concept. I use umass still.
