After 14 years, another important piece of the “bipolar” puzzle falls into place.

Posted by on Feb 6, 2012 in Events | 10 comments

After three months the results of a revolutionary new Lyme disease test by Advanced Laboratory Services are in, at least for Christopher Moyer, my son. Scientists have found a way to take a sample of blood and grow spirochetes from it. Then PCR testing establishes if the genetic material is the same as Borrelia burgdorferi. Chris’ sample was one of those used by the company to initially assess their lab procedures which have been evolving on a daily basis. For example, according to Dr. Burrascano, since the PCR is proving to be highly accurate, even at the 6 day period, they will now be declaring positive results within six days, even before the motile spirochetes have formed. Dr Burrascano has been a consultant to Advanced Laboratory Services. He believes, and I agree that this test is revolutionary.

This test will have profound implications on the current debate between the Infectious Disease Society (IDSA) of America and the International Lyme and Associated Disease Society (ILADS). It will have a profound influence on the ongoing litigation against Lyme literate doctors for treating a condition called chronic Lyme, a disease the IDSA claims does not exist. I hope it will have profound effects on the treatment of my son Chris and thousands like him. For 14 years he has labored under the impression that he suffers from a psychiatric disorder called bipolar disorder. Among other chronic infections, he has chronic Lyme disease. Read the blogs of Chris and Dave for details.

Chronic Lyme disease does exist. My son’s test proves it. The Infectious Disease Society of America is wrong. The persecution of Lyme literate doctors is wrong. The cure is still unknown, but the disease isn’t.

  1. Thank God! My daughter has chronic lyme. I can’t wait to read more. Thank you.

  2. This is very interesting, You are an excessively skilled blogger. I have joined your rss feed and sit up for in the hunt for more of your excellent post. Also, I’ve shared your site in my social networks

    • Most of the people here do drescibe what seems to be lyme. The reason I am actually posting is because I came across this post Hi, please I need help!I have a bulls eye in my arm and i have skin rashes like stretch marks on my legs and arms, and i have been will all the symptoms. Is it a serious disease? Is it contagious? I done28099t know what to do Ie28099m really frustrated! This would most likely be Bartonella.Bartonellosis is often mild but in serious cases it can affect the whole body. Early signs are fever, fatigue, headache, poor appetite, and an unusual, streaked rash. Swollen glands are typical, especially around the head, neck and arms. Burrascano suspects bartonellosis when neurologic symptoms are out of proportion to the other systemic symptoms of chronic Lyme. He also notes gastritis, lower abdominal pain, sore soles, and tender subcutaneous nodules along the extremities. Lymph nodes may be enlarged and the throat can be sore.Ticks transmit way more than just Lyme Disease and most non-LLMD doctors will not even test you for them and claim that you don’t have any of them based on where you live. Google Images of Bartonella and you can see if what you have looks like what you see. If you ask your doctor and they ignore your concerns, search on the web for an LLMD in your area. They are the LYME EXPERTS. Please, all of you may continue to have weird symptoms/Medical problems that no doctor will relate to Lyme. IT IS LYME. Do not bother with an infectious disease doctor, they have not updated themselves on this disease.I know this information from personal experience. I tested positive and treatment from an infectious disease specialist failed I continued to get sick. Since 7+ months of treatment, I have been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis as well as Scleroderma. Please find an LLMD ASAP. I went only 4 months without treatment before diagnosis and I’m afraid I may never get my life back. I know deep down inside that what I have is Lyme EVEN THOUGH most of the medical world will tell you its not. There is a world of VALID info on the web but be careful as to what you read. This is a serious disease that will infect your brain if not treated promptly. Just google the truth about Lyme disease.Hope Jaimi sees this post and gets the treatment she needs.

  3. This is great news for all of us! So many of us, went undiagnosed, hearing, “in your head”, while slowly dying, and, have unknowingly passed this horrible illness to our children, congenitally. Many kids with re infections, on top of what they were born with. My youngest daughter, who’s Western Blot showed negative, has had every classic symptom, since the day she was born (with a fever, and slightly jaundiced), but her older sister’s test showed positive. We need accurate testing, long enough antibiotic treatment, and our doctors to be able to be the professionals that they are, without harassment.

  4. It has been known for over 100 years that mental illness is caused by micro-organisms and toxins. But its more profitable to hand out psychotropic drugs.

    • Now what are the chances of my grandaughter here in Indiana getting bit and myself in Conneticut l983 also getting bit if this disease is not prevelent??? I am telling you this disease is thick and it is getting ignored.All it takes is for the fda or the cdc to say lets treat it now and not wait until meningitis, bells palsey or wheelchair is the next level for individuals. I do not like antibiotics and will do anything to keep from taking them because of the thrush and candiadias they cause plus I have reactions to them, but believe me, I have already pulled off three ticks this spring from working in the yard and trimming trees and leaf raking, if I get down sick again, I will go to the ends of the earth to get help before I end up like I was at my lowest part of Lyme. I realize this is a long letter I am sorry but want to get point across that people need to recognize this disorder when they first get it, I think if I were let go again and the doctor would deny me treatment a lawsuit would be in the works. These doctors are sworn to help those out there who are hurting , not diagnose them as nuts. Remember Al Capone,? He died of syphlis another spirochetal disease just like Lyme and he went crazy and blind before he died. How many out there will have to die from the Lyme before we get a decent test and the cdc agrees to let up on the guidlines so someone can be teterad early rather than late when the damage is already done.

      • Dina, the test described in this blog actually grows the spirochetes from blood. No more indeterminate tests!

    • it has never been reported that anynoe has contracted Lyme Disease with a tick that has been imbedded under 48-72 hours. I do not have faith in the pcp system and now 5 days later my son has developed a high temp of 104 and is complaining of neck pain.I asked for antibiotics and was told this is not a good choice b/c each time you give a child a abx that they fall risk of resistive bacteria& when the need is really there the abx do not work any longer and you will put him at risk. I asked for the rx incase and am contiplating getting it filled. I feel no one around here really knows how long, when the earliest the symptoms can show and blood tests are useless most of the time. I am a chronic suffer of this illness for 25 years now and I was misdiagnosed initially and do not want the same for my son. I feel torn between what I know and what every article is telling me along with the impression from the doc that there is no chance of infection. I will admit I am super sensitive to the issue.concerned mother

  5. No wonder you called me David! Do you remember? I’m delighted that you found out what is going on and I’d love to be more there for you….since I’ve been rehabbing the brain for years….and have intimate experience with seizures….it’s great for me to know that you have posted this information publicly….I know what it is like to have family members suffering from these symptoms….my whole client load is this population….whatever we can brainstorm that helps is wonderful…it’s so great to exchange information!

  6. I believe everything published was actually very logical. But, what about this? what if you added a little content? I am not suggesting your content is not good., but what if you added a title that grabbed people’s attention? I mean %BLOGTITLE% is kinda vanilla. You could peek at Yahoo’s front page and see how they create article titles to get viewers to click. You might add a video or a picture or two to get readers interested about everything’ve written. Just my opinion, it might bring your blog a little bit more interesting.
