Some of these were not uncommon to read about
here in the past. Not cheap, but it can answer a few things, helping with your healing plan that you otherwise would not know.
Its my guess (guessing ha ha) most chronically ill people were not in as good of health as they thought before they became ill, there were things going on and building up in the background. If not, your illness would not have gone chronic.
Ive had so many tests in the near recent past that I decided to make healing lyme an opportunity to go all out and look at overall whole body health. When lyme and its counterparts changed 30 years of my adult life, I want to make the best of whats left.
Newbies- these are searchable here in this forum.
This is the order I did them in over 4-5 years:
1)Genova NutrEval - mineral and acid levels and a little on how they tie into certain methalation cycles, best from a participating Dr. who knows it, otherwise can be a confusing path itself to understand, but it shows levels too. Very expensive outright but half price if you attempt to run it through insurance coverage.
2)Spectro Cell - innercell testing of about
20 vitamins and amino acids, better than blood serum. $400
3)23andme - coupled with several "decoding" sites. We are a product of how our genes react with our living environment. $100 + decoding free or $50 for better ones like MTHFR support Sterling App.
4)Leap MRT (Mediator Response Testing) - food test 170 common US foods and food chemicals for cytokine reaction with my blood. $350
Initial lyme symptoms in late 80's, again with bullseye early 90's. Started ABX 2014, ended in Jan 2016. Flares ended after. Lyme "B gone" as far as I can tell (Cured?). Now: Healing the aftermath-Rebuilding / fine tuning / fixing muscles and still improving nutrition and immune via better gut health. + 20 years of Hashimoto might now be improving.
