Do NOT Depend on the Standard Lab Tests 
Chances Are They Are Wrong!

Approximately $500 MILLION is spent on the 
3.4 MILLION Lyme tests performed in the USA each year.

What a huge waste of money!


According to a study from Johns Hopkins, Lyme tests miss approximately 75% of the patients who have Lyme disease.  Other sources have determined the percentage of people missed could be as high as 90%.  

Unfortunately, these tests still generate millions of dollars for stake holders each year.  It appears some people are getting richer while others are getting sicker.  Remember, a negative test does not exclude the diagnosis of Lyme disease!  

A false negative Lyme test is a disadvantage in several ways. 

1.  Your health care professional may not realize you could still have Lyme disease and not treat you as a result.  

2.  False negative tests can cause a delay in obtaining a proper diagnosis.  Not receiving proper treatment in the early stages allows a complex infectious organism to spread throughout your body, making your condition worse and allowing it to advance to later stages.  This, in turn, makes Lyme disease more difficult and expensive to treat.

3.  You may be improperly diagnosed with fibromyalgia, CFS, MS, Parkinson's, ALS, ADD, depression and other disorders when in fact Lyme disease is the underlying culprit.  
 
4.  A negative test provides the insurer another reason to deny your medications and any further testing or treatment for Lyme disease.    


Over the years more health care professionals have stopped using the standard "insurance approved" tests and are sending blood samples to labs that specialize in tick borne disease testing.  

If you would like to use a specialty lab to aid in the diagnostic process, you can have a test kit sent to you upon request.  For more information please contact:
