Negative Results in Lymes testing

Negative results for Lymes testing can be a result or other medications that you are taking that are making the Lymes hide in your cells, such as Antiviral medications and Steroids. This can also be a result of not having enough magnesium in your body. Stress depletes magnesium levels, as does chronic pain or illness, diarrhea, thyroid disorders, gluten intolerance, food allergy reactions, caffeine and sugar.

If your magnesium defiant
This just causes the bacteria to convert to a cyst form and wait indefinitely - while your body becomes significantly weakened and impaired from the deficiency. Increasing magnesium intake causes cyst forms to convert back to spirochetes to retrieve the magnesium, which is more readily available in the bloodstream, allowing them to be attacked by antibiotics or other treatment protocols.

Reasons Why A Seronegative Test Result Might Occur
Tom Grier, Lyme Alliance

1. Recent infection before immune response

2. Antibodies are in immune complexes

3. Spirochete encapsulated by host tissue (i.e. lymphocytic cell walls)

4. Spirochete are deep in host tissue

5. Blebs in body fluid, no whole organisms needed for PCR

6. No spirochetes in body fluid on day of test

7. Genetic heterogeneity (300 strains in U.S.)

8. Antigenic variability

9. Surface antigens change with temperature

10. Utilization of host protease instead of microbial protease

11. Spirochete in dormancy phase

12. Recent antibiotic treatment

13. Recent anti-inflammatory treatment

14. Concomitant infection with babesia may cause immunosuppression

15. Other causes of immunosuppression

16. Lab with poor technical capability for Lyme disease

17. Lab tests not standardized for late stage disease

18. Lab tests labeled "for investigational use only"

19. CDC criteria is epidemiological, not a diagnostic criteria
