Under the Weather? A Blood Test Can Tell If Antibiotics Are Needed

Under the Weather? A Blood Test Can Tell If Antibiotics Are Needed

This is a very important issue.  Under the weather, frequent colds, lethargy, lack of umph?  These conditions can have their causes in many deficiencies in the body which can not necessarily be treated with antibiotics alone.

I recall the time just four years ago when a nephew of mine, who had been suffering from frequent colds and infections.  His mother insisted that he had a blood test to establish the cause.  He was 17 years of age at the time just about to take his Baccalaureate.

Imagine the shock when the test results revealed acute leukemia.  He survived after several rounds of chemotherapy and thanks to bone marrow his twin brother was able to give for the transplant.

The moral of the story is, if you suffer from the above symptoms, insist on a blood test.
