Phage therapy can treat infections due to multi-resistant bacteria such as staphylococcus aureus, pseudomonas, escherichia coli, Klebsiella, streptococci, enterococci, proteus, salmonella, ... It is the most powerful and effective alternative to antibiotics, with no side effects.
Today, it is the only known solution for treating multi-resistant bacteria.
Consult the page "Description of phage therapy" for the list of bacteria and mammary diseases treatable by phage therapy.
This proven technique, discovered in France in 1917 at the Institut Pasteur, fell into disuse with the arrival of antibiotics. This is the use of bacteriophage viruses, which are referred to simply as lytic "phages". Phages are the most common living organism in nature (1 million in a drop of seawater). Virulent phages should be sought against the pathogenic bacteria of the patient and applied. This treatment is very natural.
The bacteriophage (or phage) is the predator of the bacteria. Each type of bacteriophage is allocated a specific type of bacteria to destroy. This is the reason why, unlike antibiotics which attack a broad spectrum of bacteria without distinguishing between good and bad bacteria, the bacteriophage (or phage) will only destroy the targeted bacteria without doing any other damage. This is why there are no known side effects to phage therapy that has been practiced for 100 years, and its effectiveness is incredible.
See the "Description of phage therapy" page to understand how it works.
Phages must be in contact with bacteria to be able to "attack" them. In cases of pulmonary infections, they are inhaled, in cases of urinary tract infections, they are drunk and infiltrated urethra, in cases of osteitis or wounds, they are applied to the infectious focus, in cases of problems gastric, they are drunk and associated with a diet, in cases of folliculity, they are applied by mesotherapy, ...

Phage therapy in the West?
Phage therapy is forbidden in the West, because despite the ongoing research that is all favorable to it (read the many examples, and watch the videos), it does not fit in the administrative boxes of our Western countries. Phage therapy is not a medicine, you only need to bend down to find phages! its validation, unpatentable, would cost very expensive and wouldn't be rentable !
Because Mister d'Hérelle, discoverer of phage therapy in 1917, befriended a Georgian researcher: Professor ELIAVA. Together they built in 1923 the Eliava Institute of Phage therapy. If the arrival of antibiotics made phage therapy to be forgetten in the West, Georgians have never stopped using it. In Georfia there is the largest phage bank and the largest experiment in the world to date.
