"Many people don't know that the
Lyme bacteria can be transmitted by a
mosquito, flea or any other bloodsucking insect.
It's a myth that only ticks can carry this bacteria.
You are a prime example. The symptoms of Lyme disease don't
necessarily happen immediately and can begin as a minor annoyance
and snowball into a list of symptoms a mile long. This may take
place long after the bite has occurred and long after you've
forgotten about the bite. You're right, the tests are
unreliable. If you go to an MD and you have negative
results, you will not get treatment even though you may have the
disease. If you go to a Lyme specialist,
tell him about the bite and the rash, you will receive treatment no
matter what the test results say. This is called a clinical
diagnosis. Going just by what you told me, I'd seek out a
Lyme specialist, get tested and start treatment ASAP. To
find a Lyme specialist, go to
www.LymeNet.org and register. Click on Flash
Discussion and then on Seeking A Doctor.
Post there with your city and state and someone will email you
privately. There is a policy not to post doctors' names on the site
due to privacy issues. You will see LLMD a lot on the site and that
stands for Lyme-literate MD. Good Luck and let me know if you need
anything else! Carol"

BE AWARE: The electrodermal testing devices have not been approved by the Food and Drug Administration ("FDA") for assessment of nutritional deficiencies, food allergies, the presence of toxins, Candida, Epstein Barr virus, or the weakness of organs and glands. Use of the device for these purposes is inconsistent with FDA approval. The galvanic skin response device is a Class II device that may be used for lie detection and for biofeedback.
There are no generally accepted completed clinical studies which demonstrate that the electrodermal testing devices are effective when used to assess for nutritional deficiencies, the presence of toxins, food allergies, Candida, Epstein Barr virus, and the strength or weakness of organs and glands.
Your child's exposure to lead or heavy metals cannot be determined solely through electrodermal testing.
You should not make decisions about your or your child's health and nutritional needs from information obtained solely through electrodermal testing.
You are to discuss all CEDS recommendations with your health care provider before implementing any of them. Further, that any recommended dietary changes or dietary supplements based partly on the results of electrodermal testing should all be discussed with your family physician before implementing any of them.
There are medical tests for many, if not all of the issues that respondents use electrodermal testing to assess, and you are strongly encouraged to confirm the exposures identified through standard medical testing if you or your family physician feel that it is necessary. I make no claims that the screenings find anything other than energy imbalances or that the energized water or other products actually do anything other than help balance energy.
You and God are the only ones who can heal you.
