    Oh thank you Learner that's a really good explanation! I've been told I'm homozygous for the MTHFR genetic deficiency thingo, and I know that affects methylation, so I've been taking glutathione daily. The NutrEval test sounds like a good idea. Just need to save up and decide which tests to get! I'll do some more research to find the right protocol for me. :)

    Wait so, it's probably a real positive?

    and thank you for all the resources, this is amazing - I've used iHerb before and it's so great. I didn't think of getting B12 there though! I'll order some, my sister has started trying it and it's helped her a lot. You're the best.

    Yes, definitely learn more about the methylation cycle and do the NutrEval test if you can - in many places they have a discounted pre-pay program which makes it more affordable.

    It's almost certainly a real positive. I've never heard of a false positive from that lab, but there have been lots of false negatives.

    If you go down the Buhner path, you should

    You are very fortunate to have a Lyme literate GP. Keep him in the loop because some people do need antibiotics to get better. Even if you do, it will be easier

    I have also found the LymeNet forum (http://flash.lymenet.org/scripts/ultimatebb.cgi) to be really useful.

    Finally - did you say you are starting uni this year? That would make you the same age as my son. I'm impressed you finished year 12.
