Re: Clinical study to evaluate Advanced Laboratory Services' Borrelia culture test

"Have late Lyme disease based on the following criteria: Signs, symptoms and clinical history consistent with late stage Lyme disease, including but not limited to disseminated rash, arthritis, meningitis, facial palsy, or carditis."

Re: Drug Combination Active against Amoxicillin-Induced Round Bodies of In Vitro B. burgdorferi Persisters

Like cancer patients, we need a cure for ramifications from the cure. I hope not :/ But then again, some conventional IV antibiotics can cause really rough herxing, to the point at which I wonder if it's doing more harm than good. Some of the LLMDs have been using daptomycin already. I've only know...

Re: Cimetidine as a novel adjunctive treatment for early stage Lyme disease.

Guess what else has similar side effects and is also thought to treat Lyme?

Re: Evidence suggests sugar consumption plays greater role in heart disease than saturated fat

What about beneficial foods like Kefir? It supposedly has inulin and 12+ strains of good bacteria in it. I've been on three max dose antibiotics for about 3-4 years now, with absolutely no GI issues by drinking a cup of kefir a day. It hands down beats the pants off any refrigerated probiotic pill y...

Re: Evidence suggests sugar consumption plays greater role in heart disease than saturated fat

Re: BSK-H Culture, Darkfield Microscopy

Wow, that's cool and horrifying at the same time. Send your culture to Dr. MacDonald to stain? I've got some decent scopes in my lab and I've contemplated trying to do something like this to look for persisters.
