The diagnosis is clinical, not the blood test!
"There is no such thing as Lyme disease". 2015
this lie is still being proclaimed out of the mouths of those controlled
by big the powers that be. See how all this intertwines with what
has been known since 1911 and what stems the troubles a patient needs to
go through to get a diagnosis.

are no reliable or clear tests for Lyme disease:
textbooks and the CDC (Center for Disease Control) emphasize that Lyme
disease is to be a clinical diagnosis,
if you want to be treated medically!
Health Canada say, “The diagnosis of Lyme disease should be made after
evaluation of a patient's symptoms and the risk of exposure to infected
ticks. Blood tests may be administered in conjunction with clinical
diagnosis to demonstrate the presence of antibodies to the bacteria.
It should be stressed that the results of blood tests cannot be interpreted
in the absence of appropriate clinical information (i.e., symptoms
of infection).” This is necessary if you want to be treated medically.
doctor is to examine the patient for typical Lyme disease signs, listen
to the patient’s history and description of his or her symptoms and use
this information to make a determination. Blood tests are usually
done at the same time, but cannot be relied upon.
*** Unfortunately maybe
only 1% or less of medical doctors in most countries are equipped to give
a Clinical Diagnoses. Lyme is a very complex illness.

expert MD's who have treated thousands of Lyme disease patients there are
no reliable tests for Lyme disease, at this time.

spirochetes do not linger in the blood stream. They live within cells.
* At present there are
a few Lab blood tests available, but all have problems. The blood test
typically used by most Canadian family doctors is called an ELISA.
Take Note: Some
local health boards forbid medical doctors to use antibiotics until they
have a positive blood test and then are limited to amount of antibiotics
they can prescribe. Some insurances do not pay for "Lyme" antibiotics!
The Elisa Test means nothing
if it is negative, and it rarely indicates infection if it is performed
too early after the tick bite.
Western blot test:
Patients in later stages
of Lyme disease seldom have a positive ELISA test,
possibly because they have ceased to produce the antibodies the test looks
Many working with Lyme
patients believe that the ELISA test is only about
30-60% accurate. The ELISA test is not based on the specific Lyme
bacteria strain that is most useful for accurate diagnosis.
While a positive ELISA
test is a reasonably reliable indication of infection, a negative test
is useless. (Positive may indicate that the bacteria happened to be in
the blood at the moment the blood was drawn and as well tests have returned
false positives.) A screening test should have at least 95% sensitivity
and the ELISA misses 35% of culture proven
Lyme disease,therefore as a first step of the screening it has been and
still is unreliable.
As of 2008, this testing
protocol is still being used by many M.D.'s as the sole diagnosis for Lyme
As of 2015:

more accurate) but, it is rarely given unless the Elisa was returned positive.

The Western blot for Lyme
disease often shows infection when an ELISA test does not.
if the test results are not positive by these present standards, any
positive Lyme-specific “bands” are useful indicators of infection, but
in Canada if ELISA is negative then the Western Blot is not performed.
Unfortunately, the Centers for Disease Control have set a criteria for
considering a Western blot test as positive for Lyme disease.
This criteria, which
Canadian Public Health Notifiable Disease Management uses, was established
for surveillance and statistical analysis of the spread of the disease
and were not intended to guide doctors in their diagnosis and treatment.
This criteria is very strict and misses many people in Lyme disease surveillance
and thus the provincial statistics are unbelievably low.
Canadian medical doctors
who use only the Public Health Notifiable Disease Management Guidelines
for surveillance to diagnose or decide whether or not to treat leave many,
many infected patients without a diagnosis and therefore these patients
are denied of medical treatment that would stop the progression of this
disease. The CDC justify this by saying they want to prevent people from
getting antibiotic treatment if they do not have Lyme disease.

if the lab blood test results are not positive, any positive Lyme-specific
“bands” are useful indicators of Borrelia infection.
Are all testing labs the same?
No, they are not. Some labs
have made special efforts to focus on tick borne disease testing and use
procedures that make their tests more reliable and sensitive to Lyme disease
and its co infections.

Unfortunately as of 2009
we have no specialized Lab in Canada.
Canadians having a gut
feeling they are lyme infected, but have had a “negative” ELISA (therefore
received no treatment), sometime believe if they could just prove to
their doctor that they do have Lyme that their doctor will give them treatment.
And so, they invest, out of their own pockets, in an expensive, out of
country test at a specialized lab to have the Western blot. They believe
that if their doctor could just see the results on a paper, that this would
convince their family doctor to give them treatment... but this will
not happen. Few Canadian medical doctors acknowledge out of country
tick borne test results and others prefer to stay clear of treating Lyme
disease completely. They will give you many lame reasons
why they cannot treat you. When I look back at my MD experiences, most
insults from them were fear based and others, I truly believe, were completely
ignorant about diseases caused by ticks, and as well, numerous suffered
from tunnel vision. Most people will see an average of eleven medical doctors
before getting a Medical diagnoses.
2015: Cut through the chase. Save yourself from the insults and
frustration. Save from being prescribed inaccurately and from being sent
to repeated tests that cannot return the presence of zoonotic infections.
Save your money. Shorten the deterioration of your health by the progressive
damage from the infections. Stop the insanity of spending hundreds of thousands
of dollars. Begin eradication as quickly as possible and get rid of this
nightmare within two years. Eradicate
all without having a name for the infections.

Cut through the chase!
Challenge the bacteria's
so you will know if you have an indication of a bacteria, protozoa,
rickettsia, virus or fungus inside of you. It is actually easy to
conduct your own challenge if you have an eradicating agent that targets
all of these at one time. You will most always get a Herxheimer reaction
within a few days or a month if any infection or fungus is present in you.
Once you know you can immediately begin treatment with this same eradicating
for Lyme disease???
I have had Lyme disease once, am I then immune from any more infected tick
There isn't a vaccine available
for Lyme disease at this time 2009. There was one vaccine licensed by the
Health Protection Branch for use in Canada, but shortly thereafter the
manufacturer took that vaccine off the market. Evidence indicated that
people with a certain gene might develop an auto immune arthritic disease
from the vaccine.The only way to avoid contracting Lyme disease is to avoid
ticks and the other blood sucking insects, and other.
My Experience with the IDS MD:
No. You can get Lyme and other
tick borne diseases every time you get a new tick bite. Some Lyme MD's
and people with chronic Lyme have observed that each subsequent infection
makes symptoms more severe and treatment more difficult.
After waiting many weeks to
get in to see this Infectious Disease Specialist;
I showed him the paper of the results of the Elisa,that had
returned negative. He said it was impossible to get Lyme in Red Deer (2008)because
there was no Lyme in Alberta. I wanted him to listen to my symptoms, but,
as I started to list a few symptoms he cut me off and said, "There is no
Lyme in Alberta". I tried again to have him listen to my symptoms so I
could get a clinical diagnoses and again he cuts me off, repeats,"You do
not have Lyme disease. There is no Lyme in Alberta." and the third time
he repeated this he simply walked away and left me to swallow all my hope
for getting better. He did not want to even take a peak at my symptoms
list and history that I had written down. I left with added anger at having
been stifled once again, at having been once again treated as an insignificant,
at not having been listened to...once again...by one more MD.
Since then, I have discovered
that this insulting behavior has been practiced on many others in numerous
countries around the world.
