DIAGNOSIS & TESTING
IMPORTANT NOTE:  Find an LLMD (see below).  The standard ELISA and basic general Western Blot test that most doctors use will miss more than 50% of cases. It’s important to find an experienced LLMD or LLND to run IgeneX testing and to make a clinical diagnosis.

HOW TO FIND AN LLMD or LLND

IMPORTANT NOTE:  Since many LLMDS or LLNDS are “flying under the radar”, contact the support group in your province or area as they generally keep an unpublished list of LLMDs and LLNDS. CanLyme.com also keeps a listing of LLMDs and LLNDS.  Also, Dr. Murakami’s Clinic in BC has trained many ND’s in BC through the ND College there so he has many names of LLND contacts in BC, perhaps elsewhere also since people call him from all over Canada and the US.
