I live in Canada and am being encouraged by my physician to see Richie Shoemaker. I have tested negative to lyme but slightly positive to babesia ( through I-GeniX labs ). I appreciate that this does not rule out lyme at all. My C3a complement level was within nomal limits but my C4a was at 16764. The tests were performed at National Jewish Health in Denver. Also, my CD57 cells are decreased. I am just reading Richie's book, Mold Warriors, and he does not write about C4a from what I see so far?? Does anyone have any thoughts/advice about seeing Richie Shoemaker or my results? I have his new patient package and have been informed by his office that he would want to do all the required blood work though his office after a consultation appointment. I was on a one week holiday in Priest Lake, Idaho in August 2008 when this all started. I had a sudden onset of dizziness, lightheadedness, head pain and visual blurring after returning from an easy mountain bike ride. I found out a year ago that our friends cabin that we were staying at in Priest lake had a lot of mold in the basement. I assumed that because the rest of my family did not become ill and that I was not in that environment any longer, that it was not an issue. I am just now being re-educated about this. Do you ever see people on this forum or elsewhere that have a similar short duration type exposure and remain ill?? I have been to Dr. Rea at the Environmental Health Center in Dallas and met many sick people from chronic mold exposure. I was on Dr. Rea's detox protocal involving glutathione, vit/min IV's, saunas, etc but am stil very compromised. Many tests and diagnoses.......... I would love some input. Thanks!!!
