Hey guys! Hoping to provide some general information about my wife, hopefully she'll be able to help with specifics if you need more details about symptoms and dates.
Basically, my wife comes from a family that just found out they're affected by Lyme disease. Her mom, two sisters, a brother, and her went up to Walker, MN for some preliminary testing and they found out that 5/8 people in the family have the disease...my wife being one of them.
When we found this out, I was pretty concerned. I did all of the research online that I possibly could just to come to the heartbreaking conclusion that there's a lot of misinformation online and within the medical community about Lyme disease. Mayo didn't treat the mother in law very well so they all ended up at this private practitioner's office up in Walker, MN.
Anyway, the whole family just went up there again for a more thorough round of testing and treatment. However, my wife caught strep throat last minute and wasn't able to go since she'd started taking antibiotics.
As the title says, I've just a got a few concerns and am worried about how to go forward with the situation.
Reading online, this guy up in MN has a lot of raving reviews, it looks like he's helped a lot of people. That said, I haven't seen him on your online registry/LymeDoc. It looks like he's primarily a Chiropractor that's helped people with Lyme over the years. Might there be a reason why? I'll happily say his name if it's allowed, but he's not too hard to find.
He does a lot of testing with electromagnetics and 'frequency testing' throughout the body...is this standard practice with Lyme diagnosis/treatment? the MIL swears by him but as you can probably imagine, this looks a little strange from the outside looking in.
I'll try to answer any questions I can if I've left something out. Thanks for all of the help in advance. We could really use a community that's knowledgeable when so many people aren't.
