Many of the best LLMDs out there say this is the closest test to accurate. Not 100% in some cases but it is looking for DNA of the bacteria(s) and that is pretty awesome.

Drawl back is they aren't looking for DNA on ALL Strains known for lyme, babesia and bartonella. Also with long term infections there is a chance that the DNA is degraded, mutated or and unspecified subspecies.

I may try this test ob my grandson who may have congenital lyme. My bite was from late 1960s. Were there fewer strains then? Do you think this test will pick of strains from almost 50 years ago?

Neko, I hop you don't mind sharing results from this test. I've heard good things.

So my test was positive for babesia duncanni (prior positive with labcorp)

Bartonella bacilliformis

And ehrlichia chaffeensis.

The Lyme panel so far is negative.

I have extensively treated Lyme and babesia.

Was suggested I go on months of minicyclime.

I’m currently doing bee sting therapy though.

I just had this done. The test found Lyme, Babesia, and Bartonella. I have had symptoms for 25 years at least and the doctor didn't think that doing Igenex would show anything since I'm had it for so long. Thankful for this newer test. They were still developing it when my DD was in treatment.

symptoms since 1993 that I can remember. 9/2018 diagnosed with Borellia, Babesia Duncani, and Bartonella Hensalae thru DNA Connections.

Did this test on my own and brought results to LLMD.

She thought since I had deep tissue massage, it might be that dead bacteria are forced out and that's what is reacting in test.

She's not saying she's right about this. I've wondered if this is a common opinion of LLMDs about this test?

That makes no sense to me that the bacteria would be dead. I was positive for lyme, babs, and bart. I'm not in treatment so how could they be dead bacteria? I did 30 minutes of hard exercise for my provocation.

Yes, I thought when the bacteria died it was because abx, herbs etc killed them in the blood and then they go into urine and are excreted at time of their death

So they wouldn't be hanging around dead in muscles and joints I wouldn't think.

And yet she's smarter than me.
