I Think I Have Lyme Disease But My Doctor And Lab Tests Say I Don't
How to confirm your Lyme suspicion and get on the road to healing
In a world where no Lyme test is 100% accurate, and not every doctor acknowledges chronic Lyme disease (i.e., MSIDS), you have every reasonable right to continue to think you have chronic Lyme disease, even if your tests continue to come back negative. Yes, even if it’s your fifth negative Lyme test or your fourth Lyme doctor to say you’re crazy and it’s all in your head.
There are quite a few legitimate reasons why a Lyme test will continue to come back negative, even when a person actually has the Lyme bacteria. There are also many legitimate reasons why a Lyme test will continue to come back negative, such as not actually having Lyme, but a person’s symptoms can still match the condition of Lyme to a T. What the heck is going on and how do we simplify, as best as we can, something that has really grown unnecessarily complex?
In a first world country, in 2017, where science is revered as the most powerful method and tool humans have to obtain truths of our world, you should be able to go to your family doctor, get an accurate test for chronic Lyme, but even if the test comes back negative, not be passed off by that treating physician with the words, “everything looks good”, and left to your own devices.
Now That You’re On Your Own
Now That You’re On Your Own & confident you're not dealing with another medical condition that could explain your symptoms

The alternative Lyme diagnosis Method
Samento is a cheap provocation method for Lyme, for if you have a reaction to it -- a herxheimer reaction -- you can confidently say you’re dealing with Lyme. Of course, in addition, a positive lab result will solidify the diagnosis. You could also use A-L Complex by the Byron White Formulas.
Samento comes in a tincture and consists of the herb Cat’s Claws, but it's lacking in specific constituents from the untouched herb to supposedly make it more effective (another article, another controversy). Nonetheless, in a very simple to use and cheap supplement, at least compared to some Lyme tests, you can provoke the suspected Lyme bacteria within to help confirm any suspicions you or your doctor have about having Lyme.
How To Provoke A Suspected Case Of Lyme With Samento
However, just like lab results, provocation with Samento is not a 100% guaranteed way of diagnosing Lyme. If you have a reaction while taking Samento, use this information with symptoms and lab results to support your Lyme hypothesis, but if you don't have a reaction to Samento, don't entirely discount the idea of having Lyme just yet.
I Didn’t Have Any Reactions -- Good Or Bad -- To Samento
But Still Have Symptoms
You may be dealing with mold toxicity in your home or place of work, you could have a serious nutrient deficiency or surplus of some kind, there might be a heavy metal issue or other infections just as serious as Lyme (e.g., babesia, bartonella, etc) -- yes, you can provoke these infections in the same manner as you did Lyme, but with other supplements -- or your breast implants may be leaking toxic silicone into your body. Of these roadblocks mentioned, you could have multiple or you could have one not even mentioned. This is where the good detective work of not just your Lyme-literate physician, but you as well, comes into play in determining what exactly is keeping you specifically sick.
