Pathogen Testing

When a pathogen invades the human host, it can cause an acute infection. Most of these acute infections manifest as flu-like symptoms such as diarrhea, fatigue and fever. After the acute phase is complete, it is often thought that the pathogen that ignited the acute response has been cleared by the immune system.  This type of acute infection is well understood across all walks of life and medicine al practitioners.

In reality, often, after the acute infection, the pathogen remains in human cells where it can thrive in a reactivating or latent state, all the while excreting its biotoxins. To make matters more complicated many people acquire and carry a pathogen without ever experiencing an acute infection.  This is well understood with chicken pox virus, varicella-zoster.  After the initial acute infection, varicella-zoster lays dormant in the body only to be reactivated later causing shingles.  

Although the acute infection stage can be

life-threatening in some situations,

sometimes it is the chronic, reactivating,

latent pathogen exposure that can

significantly alter the host’s quality of life.  

There are a plethora of pathogens that act

just like varicella-zoster does but do not get

the same recognition and treatment.  

The undetected pathogen may not result in

clinical complaints for years or even decades.  

After invading the body, a pathogen may

infiltrate tissue cells and remain there safe from immune attack, but still release its toxins into the body, thereby affecting distant tissues.  Depending on the pathogen type, autoimmunity against human tissues may ensue through different mechanisms including molecular mimicry, polyclonal activation, bystander activation, epitope spreading, super antigen release, viral persistence, dysregulation of immune homeostasis, and autoinflammatory activation of innate immunity.  All fancy ways of saying "it's coming back to cause more damage."

The Pathogen Associated Immune Reactivity Screen by Cyrex Laboratories

  • This invaluable tool helps get down to the bottom of what is causing or exacerbating your chronic illness.  

  • While some chronic conditions have a clear cause, many do not.  In fact, they have many different causes.  Most of which are not readily checked for or even accepted by conventional medicine.  

  • Perfect for anyone with chronic disease that is the known result of an acute infection or a chronic disease that is not responding to treatment.

  • Tests for:

The test can be ordered for you anywhere in the country.  All you have to do is take the order to a blood draw site near you for collection and the rest is taken care of!
