Lyme Disease & Pathogen Testing

Overview

Lyme Disease Testing

Lyme disease is a bacterial infection that occurs as a result of a borrelia burgdorferi infection and can be found all over the world. A rash (the most well-known is the Bull’s Eye rash) and flu-like symptoms such as joint discomfort and fevers are common in the early stages of the disease.

Fatigue, joint and muscular discomfort, and cognitive impairments, among other symptoms, may appear in the latter stages. Lyme disease is contracted through a tick bite, most commonly from an infected black-legged tick, and symptoms can take up to 6 weeks to appear. Co-infections such as Babesia, Bartonella, Ehrlichia, and other diseases are frequently carried by infected ticks.

Patients can develop long-term excessive weariness, joint and muscular pain, nerve pain, mental fog, psychiatric disorders like depression and anxiety, and a variety of other symptoms if they are not addressed. Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Lupus, and psychological illnesses are just a few of the ailments that might be misdiagnosed with these symptoms.

The following conditions have been associated with Tick-born illness.

Supportive Oligonucleotide Technique (SOT)

SOT is a personalized therapy for viruses and pathogens including Lyme Disease. The SOT has the ability to bind to a specific gene of interest that controls the pathogen by disrupting the critical process that promotes its survival or growth. During this therapy, the patient’s blood is analyzed and a complementary oligonucleotide sequence is created that is designed to interrupt the survival or growth of the cells.

The below listed organisms are immediately available for SOT:

A negative test does not mean you do not have the disease.

Unfortunately, blood tests have considerable limitations, and there is currently debate over how much weight a blood test should be given in the diagnosis of Lyme illness. Lyme disease can exist without a positive test result.

You will not always have a bull's eye rash in the early stages of disease.

Commonly, many patients do not experience a rash at all, and often times the rash does not resemble the bull’s eye rash that we’re all familiar with. Instead patients will experience moderate to severe flu-like symptoms.
