It's amazing how complex this has turned out to be once I understood all the influences. Igenx is the gold standard lab for Lyme patients. It checks for co-infections too and is considered by the most advanced doctor to be the only reliable source. However that being said the testing is still highly inadequate because the Gov won't legalize the more advanced testing, it would validate and in turn drive the insurance companies into bankruptcy.
Even with the best testing that is available the best doctors only give a "clinical" diagnosis. Igenx can test for the borrelia bacteria very successfully though and they have 98% positive in there tests. The general consensus is that the Lyme spirochete is in all of us now in one species or another. The disease is actually the result of many factors.
There is this Phd. microbiologist, he is highly acclaimed and has written 200 papers, also a nobel prize nominee and his name is Dr. Garth Nicholson, he has some really informative vids on youtube. Anyway he says that the Borriela only becomes active when there is a mycoplasma infection as well. The insect vectors for these infection are numerous and they are acumilating more infections to transmit so the people who get sick from an insect bite are usually receiving at least both of those but probably many more.
The parasite load in the body goes up once you get these other infections because these other infections attack the body in many different ways and use complex strategies to hide from the immune system then when you are stressed or sick and your immune system is low those pathogen actually can read those chemical signals in the body and start to become more agressive.
Mycoplasma are actually pieces of DNA from pathogens that are so small the get inside cells and live in the mitochondria there. They form a symbiotic and synergistic relationship with the spirochetes making the spirochetes much more virulent.
If someone had been exposed to mold like I had been when I chainsawed through this old landscaping timber then that kind of mold grows in your central nervous system and gets in your brain and constantly releases toxins there. I had a lot of different things living in me and you need to work on those in little sections. Top doctors will tell you that if you treat for all the infections that someone has at the same time the herx would be so bad that it would kill someone.
Addressing the fungi/molds that are in people from lifelong exposure does a lot to restore some vitality. Those herbals i'm talking about, the OLE, grapefruit seed extract, etc. work well but they won't do it alone.
One thing you need with the herbals are enzymes. The fungals also hide in internal biofilms so you need to use enzymes for quite a while to destroy that hiding place. Serrapeptase is a must for long term recovery without relapse. You must take that for a year every night before bed on an empty stomach. You also have to take anti-fungal with it so that when then biofilms release the fungi then they can be killed.
I didn't see much results from the H2o2 or oxylift I used by itself, there was some. The oxylift is a pretty cool product because it is ionic oxygen mixed with enzymes and minerals. The ionic nature of it makes it able to get inside cells, which is huge, it also can penetrate biofilms this way.
I definitely did see herx results when I switched from just OLE tincture to OLE Tinc mixed w/ oxylift. that mix was a bomb.
