Lyme Disease Testing and Co-Infection Testing

Lyme Disease TestingLyme disease is pervasive and the reason for autoimmune diseases such as Lyme arthritis, neuroborreliosis and numerous chronic illnesses.

The difficulty faced by practitioners and laypeople alike is the lack of proper diagnosis. We have developed an extensive laboratory panel that tests for Lyme disease (in all forms), Lyme disease co-infections, certain parasites and viruses as well as candida (yeast).

As the diagnosis of Lyme disease is a Clinical Diagnosis we have included, as part of our Lyme Disease testing service, an interpretive consultation with a healthcare provider experienced in correlating the testing and clinical history.  This allow us to more accurately interpret the presence or absence of Lyme disease and/or Lyme disease co-infections. This can be a significant step in the healing of your chronic illness.

About The Testing

Labs are completed at an independent testing facility, Medical Diagnostic Laboratories, LLC. (MDL).  MDL is the BEST LAB in the country to test for Lyme disease and other tick borne infections as well as viral testing, mold testing and bacterial testing. Below is a list of all the microorganisms tested for as part of your comprehensive Lyme disease testing panel. All of these tests are necessary to detect hidden Lyme infections that other Lyme tests miss, resulting in false negative results and a missed diagnosis.  We also test for the common Lyme disease co-infections and candida albicans (yeast), parvovirus, and the very dangerous toxoplasmosis (brain parasite). This panel has been created to help diagnose not only Lyme disease and related co-infections but identify some of the microorganisms that are the root cause of many illnesses.
