Dominic reports on the new Phelix bacteriophage Lyme test his wife with ME/CFS tested positive on.

Possible new “break-through” blood test for Lyme and other tick-borne diseases


  • A new type of blood test for tick-borne bacterial infections became available in September 2019: the Phelix Phage Test.
  • The test looks for “phages” to confirm the presence of host borrelia infections that are otherwise invisible to antibody or PCR tests.
  • Test results validated treating a long-term, very severe ME/CFS patient for a tick-borne bacterial infection.

My wife has been ill for over seven years. She has done countless urine, feces, blood, breath, hair and saliva tests – effectively every available type of laboratory test across two continents. This included tests for Lyme and other tick-borne diseases with a specialist laboratory in the United States (ELISA, Western Blot, PCR, etc.).
