Lyme Disease: Testing & Diagnosis

Are you struggling to get a diagnosis? Lyme disease is a complex and multifactorial disease that affects everyone differently. Symptoms alone are not enough for a diagnosis because Lyme disease is "the great imitator" and can mimic many different conditions.

We understand that Lyme disease attacks the immune system, so we focus on making the body and immune system healthy to improve everything.

We start by analyzing if you have been exposed to the vector that causes Lyme disease. However, 60-70% of people don't remember or don't know they've gotten a tick bite.

Testing for Lyme disease can be confusing, and timing is critical. False negatives can occur if you test immediately after exposure. Different tests often used include ELISA, Western blot, IGNX, or dark field microscopy.

Clinical judgment is also essential for analysis, including your history, exposure, and presentation. Not all doctors are comfortable diagnosing Lyme disease due to testing inaccuracies.

But there is hope. A Lyme diagnosis is not a death sentence. Check out our blog for inspiring success stories of how people overcame Lyme disease and became the hero of their own stories. Stay tuned to learn more about Lyme disease!
