I went to a doctor a couple of years ago that is considered a great alternative practitioner. He is a so called Lyme literate doctor. First visit, he put me through a lot of tests and found nothing out of line. Then, on my second visit, he told me he wanted to do a "special" lyme test with a company called Igenex. I told him I had been tested for Lyme already but he insisted that Igenex was special. Being a natural skeptic, I asked him a couple of simple questions. First, how many blood samples had he sent to Igenex after other labs had found no indication of lyme. His answer was 400 to 500. Next, I asked him how many had come back positive. He said, "wow, you're the first patient that has ever asked that question." I said, "how many." He said, "100% were positive." I said, "are you that good at diagnosing patients." He said, "no." I said, "then why do you think 100% came back positive." He said, "I don't know." At that point, I thanked him for his time and left. I can say this much for the doc, at least he was honest. Be very, very wary of labs that have the "only reliable test" for any well known condition. In a capitalistic society, if the test was that good, others would be doing it.
