Chronic Lyme Disease and Co-Infections.

You should see what we are catching in the i-sets during the 10 pass MAH with Lymers.

The incidence of Lyme disease is on the rise.

Standard treatment for Lyme Disease are antibiotics such as doxycycline and amoxicillin. However; Lyme lingers. Individuals may experience long-term effects following exposure to Lyme. There is even a name for it, "Post-Treatment Lyme Disease Syndrome" or PTLDS. After exposure and antibiotic treatment, patients may experience musculoskeletal and cognitive complaints along with fatigue. A subset of patients who have PTLDS will have symptoms that continue on past 6 months. These patients have "Chronic Lyme Disease". Controversy regarding treatment continues as the use of multiple rounds of antibiotics are typically not recommended. Rocephin can cause emergency gallbladder surgery. Dapsone has to be done under careful clinical supervision. Many who have tried homeopathic and botanical remedies for Lyme have experienced severe Herx reactions.

Lyme boasts a variety of co-infections as well. Some of the more common include those caused by Anaplasma, Babesia, and Bartonella. The symptoms of Borrellia infections are similar to those of Bartonella such as liver or spleen enlargement, fatigue and joint pain. Another similarity between the two is that antibiotics do not provide enough improvement to warrant long term use. However the testing for the infections are different. A particular strain of Bartonella is called "cat-scratch disease" and can be spread via cats as well as ticks. Symptoms of this include lymphadenopathy, fever, spleen and/or liver enlargement, and endocarditis. There is also no currently accepted protocol for treatment of this disease.

Did you know that there is Cardiac Lyme, Lyme related cancers, Lyme related stroke, Lyme related IBS?

Igenex is great first testing for Lyme and co-infections using PCR analysis. We offer great Lyme panels thru Empire City Labs which are covered by insurance. Due to Covid, we cannot send test samples to Armin Labs in Germany at this time. 

We test and treat Lyme and co-infections.  Ozone Therapy is a safe and effective treatment for Lyme and co-infections.  Let's discuss which Lyme test is the best test for you. You have testing choices and treatment options. All ozone therapies are MD/FNP ordered and administered in NYS.
