Sounds like the lysins (sp?) is more effective than phage. Very exciting stuff. Sign me up!

Found this:

I sent them a message inquiring about lysin development for borrelia.

This is very popular in Russia, the use of phage therapy. You get them at the pharmacy.

Example: www.bacteriofag.ru/products/

I had not thought of using it for Lyme, but that's actually a really good idea.

I found this company:

/www.phagetherapycenter.com/pii/PatientServlet?command=static_clinicfaq


What infections / conditions are not treatable with phage therapy?

There are a number of pathogens for which there are currently no therapeutic phage preparations available; the list includes:

Mycobacterium (all species, including tuberculosis)
Clostridium difficile
Citrobacter
Borrelia burgdorferi (Lyme Disease)

In many cases, however, Phage Therapy Center uses other similarly unique, safe and approved medical alternatives to treat many of the above species.

I'm going to call them tomorrow and ask, will let you guys know what they say.

I got this reponse in regards to lysins for BB:

Unfortunately none of our lysins are effective against the bacteria that causes lyme disease

Just heard back from Phage Therapy Center, they only treat other infections that may be caused by the lowered immune system due to Lyme, such as sinus or bladder infections.

I just got to watch the video "The Virus That Kills Drug-Resistant Superbugs" that Charlie55 posted. Fascinating.

Thank you, Charlie55. Also, thank you LymeSick 🌟 and k07 for your investigative work.

Funny enough, after being fascinated with the YouTube video that Charlie55 posted two days ago, I started looking back through the hundreds of health-related YouTube videos that I've downloaded over the past four years of being unwell.

I decided to start with some videos by Dr. Jernigan of the Hansa Center. The first one I watched was titled "Assassins of Lyme Bacteria." What are the assassins? Bacteriophages!

Assassins of Lyme Bacteria - Dr. David Jernigan, Hansa Center for Optimum Health
/youtu.be/JzX3h67RWTI

It was August of 2016, when I downloaded the video. At the time, I knew nothing about bacteriophages. And, unfortunately, Dr. Jernigan's explanation of them did little to hold my attention. So, I watched, maybe, the first 10 minutes or so.

Tonight, after having previously watched the video that Charlie55 posted, the second viewing of Dr. Jernigan's "Assassins of Lyme Bacteria" video was much more interesting. In fact, it's renewed my interest in visiting the Hansa Center.
