Hi,

Which has given you the most noticeable difference is recovery????

Being treated for Lyme, and those meds, or Co-Infects, and those meds??

Where did you see improvement in your health?

I know some meds may be used to kill both sets of germs..

Thanks,

Hi Rob

When I added Babs treatment
to the Lyme treatment it really
kicked in Good--

In 3 days I started feeling better-
In 3 months I was Way Better--

I had been on Lyme meds Only for
18 months and improved but not greatly-

You have to treat All the infections
at the same time to keep the other
germs from taking there place--

Thats how its been for me--Jay--

I was not tested for co-infections, does that have to be done at the same cost as the first test or is it seperate and not as expensive (using Igenex)? Reading more and more I think I might have babesia, what are the signs of having it and how does the treatment differ from just lyme?

I think this is being discussed somewhere else at length, but I forget where???

Anyhow---I had a lengthy talk with my partner about this. Someone was talking about how it relates to the tummy and the good and bad bacteria there....etc.

Your tummy and your vagina (if ya got one) are not the same as your entire body. Balanced bacteria in those organs should not be compared to the "balancing" act of lyme and co's.

So I really feet differently than you did Groovy. I dont believe that if you kill Bb then your babs has more "room" to grow. It has no more room than it ever did. Neither bug is beneficial and neither is a part of the balancing act of your body.

That was our conclusion.

You should try to get at all infections, but it is not always reasonable or possible to fight all at the same time.

If you know where this is being discussed at length...let me know--I'd like to contribute.

Thanks for letting me express,
Trails

CO-INFECTIONS:

Can you tell me if the co-infections are tested through Igenex? I only had the Igenex IgG and IgM.

I tested positive for chlamydia pneumoniae through Quest. [hi]

I noticed no improvement until co-infections were diagnosed and treatment was well underway.

I was tested for Lyme through Igenex (was strong positive) but my LLMD submitted my test for co-infections to a lab in NJ she respects.

That was in June, and at that time, I began abx treatment for Lyme.

When I took my LLMD a list of my worst remaining symptoms in Dec., she identified them strongly as Bartonella and put me on rifampin to treat.

I'm so grateful I'm being treated for Bart, too. I'm currently in the middle of a pretty nasty herx.
