LYME SCI: Want to solve the Lyme wars? How about an accurate test?

Please remember that Lyme is the tip of the spear. There are many other pathogens at play and testing for those is just as abysmal as for Lyme. There are studies that show that coinfected patients have more severe illness for a longer duration of time but nobody, including the CDC, really talks about it.

There has been a widespread suppression of microscopy or direct testing of Lyme for decades. This approach looks for the organism directly: https://madisonarealymesupportgroup.com/2017/12/13/suppression-of-microscopy-for-lyme-diagnostics-professor-laane/

There is a current lawsuit due to this suppression: https://madisonarealymesupportgroup.com/2018/05/15/news-release-on-57-1-million-lyme-disease-lawsuit-filed-against-cdc/

This article also reveals how Lida Mattman’s Gold Standard Culture Method has disappeared thanks to this concerted suppression:  https://madisonarealymesupportgroup.com/2019/04/02/transmission-of-lyme-disease-lida-mattman-phd/

Never forget that the very folks at the table making decisions for patients have their hands in pharmaceutical coffers with patents on testing for Lyme: ConflictReport

There is NO foolproof diagnostic device or test for this, but there IS a validated questionnaire that doctors should be utilizing: https://madisonarealymesupportgroup.com/2017/09/05/empirical-validation-of-the-horowitz-questionnaire-for-suspected-lyme-disease/

Questionnaire here:  https://madisonarealymesupportgroup.files.wordpress.com/2016/01/symptomlist.pdf  Print & fill this out, and take to your doctor.  Educate them about this.

“If false results are to be feared, it is the false negative result which holds the greatest peril for the patient.” –Alan McDonald, Pathologist

DIAGNOSIS FOR LYME/MSIDS HAS ALWAYS BEEN AND CONTINUES TO BE A CLINICAL DIAGNOSIS.  PERIOD.
