I went to a new naturopathic doctor about a month ago whom uses MSA testing. The description of test is as follows:

MSA Technology
Meridian Stress Assessment System (MSAS) testing measures the energy at the meridian points, which directs the practitioner to probable areas of imbalance.

This technology is used in various health care practices around the world. It gives practitioners more information to consider, while trying to bring their client's energetic disturbances back into balance

So anyways, the doctor also confirmed infections that I had that came up positive in other blood testing.

What was interesting is that another babesia along with microti came up.

The babesia infection is called babesia bigemina. This doctor treats mostly with herbs.

I think it is legitimate because everything showed up in testing (mycoplasma, lyme, bartonella, EBV, HHV, babesia microti, babesia bigemina).

He told me based on the test that my two main infections that I am fighting are babesia and mycoplasma.

He put me on biaxin, but not on any of the meds for babesia. He also put me on desbio EBV.

I am not sure what I think, but am curious to see what the MSA test will show in June.

He uses the MSA test as a guide for treatment. I think it is legitimate, but alittle scared of being disappointed or being taken advantage of, so wondering if any of you have done this test?

Update:

I had a second appt with Meridian Stress Assessment and the results showed that 2 of the 3 babesia infections were gone and the mycoplasma pneumonia was gone.

Interestingly, I had less of babesia canis on the first test but since babesia bigemina and babesia microti are gone.

Hi Clint31 -

Physically, I was feeling much improved. However, my appt isn't until next month for another MSA and I think slowly the babesia is returning.

Drenching sweats/chills slowly returning. It started last week. I am curious to see what shows up on the MSA test next month.

If I had money and time, there is a practitioner across the US from me who utilizes this type of testing, and has a lot of fascinating information and feedback.

The Dr. I am referring to does not prescribe antibiotics, either, and is in a different state than where you are listed.

Hope you feel better- maybe a full moon flare? Today is the full moon. I am treating parasites, and while it's getting easier, still have the flare (lesser extent)
