MRSA TWITCHING

My fiance' was had a boil on his leg and went to the Hospital back in November 2012. The doctor had to cut his leg in two different places to help release the pressure and drainage associated with the infection. The wound has healed since then, but nothing is better. His leg has these horrible twitches. I CAN SEE HIS LEG TWITCH WITH MY OWN EYES, AND IT SCARES ME TO DEATH! Does anyone know why this is happening? He says it's so painful, and I'm scared because I don't know what to do for him. Please help!

Raw Garlic vs. Garlic Powder in Winter

Last month I got a hold of some not-to-hot but non-irradiated
garlic. Did some baths. Seemed to help. Running low now and have
started using store bought garlic powder marked 'un-irradiated,
organic' etc. I get the STRONG garlic smell when it has been added
to water and has set for awhile but, from what I can tell, it
isn't helping as much as the raw stuff. Even after adding more.

I've found some Russian Red organic garlic that I'm thinking of
buying BUT what I'm wondering is THIS: from what I've read there's
a shelf life with garlic's allicin even before it's
chopped/grated/etc, so is garlic that was harvested in the Fall
still going to be good this time of year (Febuary) or should I
just stick to the powder until I find one with better results?

Thanks for the info in advance.

Vaginal MrSA

I am really hoping to get some help on this. I have had MRSA in my vaginal area
over the past year. It began around Feb 2010. I had a gyno exam and ever since
then I have continued to have mrsa outbreaks on my labia. At least once a month.
Sometimes even more than that. I try to use natural remedies but don't often stick
with it. Just recently I have had one again almost a month since my last one. When I
have these outbreaks sometimes i will try to deal with it holistically, with say
charcoal, turmeric, and garlic but yet they still keep coming. When I go on the
antibiotics that seems to help, but only for a little while.

To describe my outbreaks, it will start as a very smal bump under the skin on my
labia.. It doesn't come to a head. and then it just grows and gets bigger all the
while under the skin. because I normally try and treat it holistically to start out
with, it gets so painful I have to go to the Urgent care for an I & D.. I have probably
had clo... read more

Hydrogen peroxide uses in staph/mrsa

I would just like to make a comment and see if anyone else has found this helpful. I have had this infection for 2.5 yrs. I think I have tried most all of the conservative meds they use for this......I have never been on IV antibiotics, so far.

The other day I got into the shower with a large bottle of peroxide and just poured it generously all over myself from the chin down, and rubbed it in good. I foamed up like crazy, of course. Then I took my regular shower with my medicated body wash for psoriasis/eczema and then rinsed and repeated with the peroxide. Its been 2 days since I did this and all of the lesions seem to be drying up. I am not sure how good this will work in the long-run, but has anyone else had experience with peroxide? I have also gone back to trying Protopic ointment again as well. I sure hope to find something that works. It seems every time something looks promising, you turn around and break out all over again within a few weeks.

Sincerely, Lyn

I just wanted to share this because
it might help someone. .i know you'll
think im crazy but people think im
crazy anyways soo here goes..i have
found one thing that stops mrsa pain
and kills boils faster than anything
else I've tried. .and that is old
urine. .just pee in any old glass jar
and let it sit for a few days the
longer the better..it stinks terrible
but it works. .soak Bandana in it and
wrap the urin soaked bandanna around
wher the pain is and the pain stops
almost instantly. Also rub it on the
boils as often as you can and do not
use soap to wash the boils only urin
and rinse with garlic water..I
promise it helps alot especially if
you are poor and uninsured.

Can MRSA infect bones/joints?

I am a 54 year old female and have had MRSA for the last 4 months, thought to a caused by a bite from a Brown Recluse spider. 3 to 4 days after I finish an antibiotic, I start showing signs of MRSA again. I have had boils, sinus, throat/tonsil problems and now seem to be affected in my bones and joints. Recently, all joints of my arms, shoulders, hips, knees and ankles are very painful. It almost feels as though my entire arm and leg BONES hurt as well. (I have had MILD Osteoarthritis for about 15 years in my knees and ankles but nothing like this!) Does anyone know if MRSA can affect bones and/or joints? My doc is sending me to an infectious disease doctor but I have not had the appointment yet. Thanks for any information you can share with me! God Bless you all! Carole

MRSA & Memory Loss
Posted by Incognito

Started February 2, 2012 at 05:52
In 2007 I developed a systemic MRSA infection that shut down my immune system. About a month later, I developed Mono and was put on a long list of medications and complete bed rest for 2 1/2 months. Over the next three years I continued to have MRSA skin and soft tissue infections and also had pneumonia each year. Finally, in 2011 I only had one minor MRSA infection, but had drug resistant pneumonia twice for a total of four months. I'm glad to be rid of the skin infections; however, my memory seems to be shot.

Do long-term MRSA infections contribute to or cause dementia or alzheimer's type symptoms?

Anyone Willing to Share Story in video?

I'm looking to make a PSA-public service announcement-type video
telling the serious, long-term affects of MRSA. My friend's
daughter has recurrent staph infections in her ear that have
resulted in multiple surgeries near the brain, loss of hearing,
loss of balance, and migraines, etc. Even worse, her dreams of
career, etc., have been derailed. Her parents have actually
started a company that is focused on preventing infectious
disease.

If you are also suffering with MRSA (which I'm guessing you are
since you are on this site), I'm sorry for your struggle.

Would you be willing to share YOUR story to show the real life,
life-changing effects of MRSA? The video would be used in
infection control training and may be on our website. If so,
please respond here. Thank you.

does anyone here know what mrsa does to the brain or neurological structure. what are the scientific facts? how does it affect the brain structure? if it does go to the brain and nervous system. i heard it can affect any system if it becomes systemic or in the blood.

im asking because i got sick from mrsa an agressive form of it that is very difficult to treat. i got sick from it a few months before i was 26 yrs old, now im almost 30 and have been sick for 4 yrs.

i noticed that within weeks of getting the infection as it was getting worse i started to get terrifying symptoms such as not being able to think or concentrate anymore, trouble with my short term memory suddenly. out of nowhere i felt like i was suddenly getting alzheimers at 25 ys old. i felt my mind slipping away and a sudden decline of my mental skills

it took my doctors months to even diagnose me correctly and my mrsa was left untreated for half a year until i got antibiotics, by then it was resistant to every... read more

TO all

I will try to make a long story short. Had a tooth ache back in December. Went to dentist and he said nothing was wrong with my tooth. At the end of Dec.the tooth was really bothering me so I called my dentist and again, took an xray and found nothing wrong with my tooth. He told me to go to an ear,nose and throat doctor thinking it could be my sinues. I didnt go. So mid Jan. the pain got so bad, I went to the ER and they dianosed me with TMJ. SO I followed up with an oral surgeon. He did a panoramic xray and said that the tooth I was complaining about had an infection that needed a root canal. Went to a root canal specialist, he drilled the tooth and started a root canal, gave me antibiotics and told me to come back in 3 weeks, so a week later the pain was really bad and when I called the dentist, he was on vacation. Went to another dentist who drilled the tooth but left it "open" so that the infection could drain. He put me on more antibiotics (augmentin). Fo... read more

I know very well phage therapy treatment from Georgia, but I found
much more. Some of them use bacteriophage cocktail
(www.intralytix.com, www.phagoburn.eu) or even phage vaccines against
mrsa (www.immlab.com). Maybe this could be the solution to the

So applied garlic directly to my wounds as recommended. But I think I have garlic burns on where I applied the garlic. The skin is dark brown. Is that a garlic burn? It seems like I need to dilute the garlic somehow.

monolaurin is effective against staph
Posted by ruth
Last Reply January 26, 2017 at 17:04
Started May 13, 2009 at 14:24
Monolaurin (derived from coconut oil) works directly on the envelope of the virus. By
disrupting the lipid bilayer of the virus, Monolaurin inactivates the virus by preventing
attachment (absorption) to susceptible host cell walls. This prevents the uncoating of
viruses needed for replication and infection.

Monolaurin is effective against yeast and fungi, staphylococcus aureus (staph) and
streptococcus agalactiae (strep), chlamydia trachomatis, candidaalbicans, giardia
lamblia, ringworm, H. pylori and gonorrhea.

In studies performed at the Respiratory Virology Branch, Centers for Disease Control,
Monolaurin was shown to remove all measurable infectivity against the following RNA
and DNA viruses:
Herpes Simplex 1 and 2
Epstein-Barr
Bronchitis
Influenza
Respiratory Syncytial Virus
Rubeola
Newcastle's
Cytomegalovirus
Directions
A therapeutic dose of monolaurin is generally 1800mg to 2400mg per day.

Side-Effects
Monolaurin is non-toxic and listed in GRA... read more
