My Bowen dilution rate was 1:64. For those of you not familiar with the test, they take your blood sample and separate it until they can no longer detect the pathogen visually. So the scale looks like this:
Anything over 1:8, I believe, shows an active Lyme infection.
I also tested negative through Bowen for Babesia and Elichiosis, two common co-infections. I will soon be tested for Bartonella and Mycoplasma, which are also common co-infections with Lyme.
There is also a test panel called the CD57 or the Stricker panel and I suspect I will be getting that one done too in October by my Lyme Literate Nurse Practitioner who works in Dr. S's office. I will keep you posted.
I tested negative for Lyme with a standard western blot because it was sent through a company other than Igenex, who is the only reputable company to do the western blot.
I showed negative for lesions on an MRI testing for MS.
