eating garlic restores the immune system

Lots of things are said to build up the immune system but nobody ever says how it strengthens the immune system, leaving questions and doubt. In the case of eating garlic, things become a little clearer.

The allicin that is formed when crushing or chewing the garlic is acted upon by digestive juices and is converted into polysulfides in the gut and these polysulfides naturally break down into less chemically volatile substances and wind up becoming diallyl disulfide. and is taken up not in the circulatory system but in the lymphatic system, a fat-soluble environment. It spends hours in the lymphatic system before being dumped into the vena Cava and then circulating through the lungs and then liver, where any remnants are flushed out via the common bile duct to be excreted.

While it is still in the lymphatic system, body chemistry breaks it down into its chemical components and uses the disulfide to build antibodies, which are held together by a disulfide double bond. Nea... read more

Rebuilding Immune system after MRSA

Hi all,
Everyone who has had MRSA knows how easy it is to have reoccurances, especially in the first year or two. This is because the antibiotics you've been given to remove the MRSA from your system, has also killed all the good bacteria needed to fight infection. The solution is to strengthen your immune system. I'm a Natural Health consultant and am certified in Homeobitanical Remedies. I found an Eniva Product that is one of the most efficient in strengthening your immune system and protect you against infections. It is called VIBE. It is in liquid form and the dose is 1oz daily. This product is now listed in the PDR (the physicians Desk Reference book) The VIBE formula contains 4 powerful formulas to create the one potent cocktail. The 4 blends include one for IMMUNE HEALTH, which includes minerals and phytonutrients, one for ANTI_AGING which include your antioxidents, one for CARDIOVASCULAR HEALTH which includes coq10 and malic acid(used for fibromalgia) and one for CEL... read more

Garlic harvesting time

Sometimes I post just general information; this one of those times. In the northern hemisphere's middle climes, it is garlic harvesting time and it is in full swing as growers and harvester all struggle to get their work done and get the piles of garlic out of the sun and under some shade asap after digging it. The garlic needs to hang in a breezy and shady place for a month or so to properly cure so it can store its full shelf life.

Asiatic and Turban type garlics store about 4 months or so, while Rocamboles will store maybe 5 months or so before sprouting. Purple Stripes, maybe 8 months and Creoles and Porcelains at 10 months and Silverskins will store 11 months or so but they won't harvest until next month.

If you have been looking for real garlic, the next few months are the best time to buy. You can find lots of growers online and buy direct from one of them or, try a few of them because they grow a lot of different kinds of garlic so learn all you can about it and... read more

Garlic and staph

This first post will take four intstallments.

It's hard to know where to start so I think I will start with the most basic information, make a few bold statements and then back up those statements with supporting studies and statements from research scientists.
Crushed raw non-irradiated garlic kills staph; all staph, including MRSA and what's more, staph cannot become immune to crushed raw garlic like it has the pharmaceutical antibiotics.
That's a pretty bold statement but you will soon understand why it is so.
Freshly crushed raw garlic kills all or almost all harmful bacteria, including staph, on contact. One study (Walton, Herbold&Lendegren 1936-1938 - Journal of Food Science) even showed that the vapors alone from nearby crushed raw garlic killed all bacteria, including staph, out to 8" away just from the fumes.

Numerous other studies, such as Abdou et al., 1972 have confirmed that crushed raw garlic kills staph on contact. I can cite many other studies showing ... read more

because of tremendous stress in my life recently, I picked up MRSA from my handicapped little girl who is colonized with MRSA. I developed a boil on my face and didn't know what it was, so i did some online research. I am loathe to go the the Dr. unless I'm really ill, so I decided to try to cure myself. I found that TURMERIC the indian spice worked for a lot of people suffering from boils so I decided to give it a try as I happened to have some on hand. I began by using warm compresses dipped in a solution of water salt and about a teaspoon of turmeric. I also mixed a teaspoon with about a quarter cup of warm half and half and drank it several times throughout the day. The boil was nearly the size of a golf ball when I began. By the second day it opened and began to drain pus. Then I made a paste with salt turmeric and water and applied it directly to the boil and covered it with a sterile gauze. I kept up the regimen and the boil is almost completely gone after 8 days. However, se... read more

Thanks for the add. I wanted to join to get advice and see if anyone has went
through what I am currently going through and can offer some support. I'm 36 y/o

hours. I was up walking the next day and felt amazing. 2 weeks later i was
readmitted to the Neuro ICU and was septic. I had to be reopened and my wound
debrieded. I was told the hardware looked great. I was on IV antibiotics for 8
weeks. Since the second surgery I have had pain on my left lower back which is

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

Allicin and garlic water kill staph

Allicin and garlic water kill staph.

The compound in garlic most responsible for killing staph is diallyl thiosulfinate or allicin as it is popularly called, a volatile compound with a half-life of about 16 hours in air that forms when garlic is crushed. The experts tell me that highly volatile sulfenic acids form instantly as soon as the garlic is crushed and some immediately breaks down into allicin and then the sulfenic acids break down into allicin and other compounds at a steady rate but with unexplained thirty second surges in allicin formation every six minutes and fifteen seconds, approximately. By letting the crushed garlic set for fifteen minutes or an hour, we allow more allicin to form and increase the effectiveness of the garlic.

As allicin breaks down, it deteriorates into several oily polysulfide compounds, the smelliest one of which is allyl mercaptan, which causes garlic odor but mercaptan doesn’t have any antibiotic properties.

Garlic Questions for Bob Anderson

Hi Bob, hope you are well. I wanted to ask a few questions. Can
Garlic be Dehydrated after being chopped and left out to form
Allicin and still have the Medicinal Benefits if it is then placed
in a quart of water and use as a Poultice/Compress on a
Abscess/Boil? I was also wondering about Freezing Garlic after
being Chopped? I was thinking it it was chopped and then
immediately frozen in small batches for later use, that when it is
removed from Freezer it would then begin to for the Allicin? I
would freeze in airtight Doubled Freezer Bags to protect it. I am
most interested in Dehydrating it on very low heat in oven with
door open,temp less than 115 or use a Dehydrator. I have also
heard of Dehydrator that is not powered but used outdoors and
dehydrated by the Sun? What do you think? Thank Bob :)

The following was inspired by Nikki, and other new forum posters. Hope this helps in all your struggles with MRSA colonization/infections.

The keys to success in treating MRSA lesion outbreaks… is understanding the biological need to balance flora in all respects, along with a fair understanding about cross contamination, and our immune system function.

In my opinion… three areas need to be addressed.

Topical flora balance/decolonize.
Internal flora balance/build immune system to optimal.
Environmental flora balance/decontamination.

Countering Attack/Proactive
When afflicted with a ‘pathogenic’ contagion like MRSA… there is no quick fix, no universal one time treatment and we’re done with it. Rather, studies and personal experiences reflect success (and failure cautions), concerning treatments in which to ‘control’ the effects of MRSA colonization/infections on us - the human host.

It serves us best to utilize BOTH ‘conventional’ and ‘alternative’ m... read more

Does anyone know of any longterm complications that can be expected from an MRSA infection?
I had an infection for a month.
I have had boils off on and since Dec 05. I didn't know I had MRSA until I went to the Dr. after I had an infection in lymph nodes and was having ear aches, head aches, and anxiety.I have been perfectly healthy all 31 years of my life.
My antibiotics are finished and lymph nodes all better but I seem to have very very slight pain in my ear very occasionally. I also get little twinges around my sternum. I am not sure if I am just scared now or If I have a lingering problem. I also have a problem with my cornea now that I will be seeing a specialist for tommorrow. I suspect the cornea problem may be related to the MRSA.

How To Effectively Treat MRSA and Boils
Posted by Jeremy Geurtjens
Last Reply July 13, 2015 at 23:06
Started July 13, 2015 at 22:05
Hi there,

My name is Jeremy Geurtjens and I am a FORMER sufferer of MRSA and boils. I
say former because I am free from the infection and have been for 18 months
now. I am married with two kids and work as a Police Officer.

I contracted a Staph infection from my son who got a couple of nasty boils. The
Dr's were not able to help much and under-prescribed my antibiotics which led to
the Staph infection developing a resistance to the antibiotics.

This happened time and time again until I had full blown MRSA. They even gave
me the "best" anti MRSA antibiotics available via an IV while I was in hospital.

I was ill for about 9 months and NOTHING was working but what I did find was
that "natural" treatments worked the best at treating the symptoms i.e. the
accesses and infections and that a healthy diet is a must if you want to "cure"
MRSA fully.

During the period that I was ill, I felt like I was suffering but then I realised that
there were people that w... read more

New to MRSA and trying to Learn more about it. I recently had a rash under each
armpit. After a few weeks I began developing what looked like pimples but they
grew to about the size of a dime and became very painful, maybe 5-6 under each
armpit area. Dermatologist took culture and confirmed it was MRSA. I took
Bactrim for 40 days and it cleared things up, minus the scarring. Took my last
Bactim on a Monday morning and by Friday I had the abscesses returning.
Started Bactrim again on Sunday and it appears to be working on the new
abscesses. Dr says Bactrim can take 6-8 weeks to clear infection, is this what
others are experiencing? I keep the open sores covered with bandages, do not
share towels and wash hands regularly. How contagious am I to my wife and
children?? Once the infection is clear will I always have MRSA? The Dr says no
but that I will be more susceptible to it. How would I know if I'm a carrier, is there
a medical test for this? Than... read more

Hi, I thought I would put it all together in one place:
ONE: I make a wash using a clean plastic bucket full of water, several drops of tincture of iodine and 2 drops of tea tree oil. With this, I GENTLY wash my face with little pats MANY times a day. I bathe with it at night, also put some into my scalp. I keep that face cloth in the bucket. DO NOT put straight iodine on your body, no matter how desperate you are, it will burn your skin off. You must go slowly, gently, to inhibit the growth of the bacteria. Next: I make sure my urine pH is ALKALINE, which means a bit over pH 7. pH 7.36 is ideal for the human body. MRSA is acidic and loves an acidic body, so my job is to make my body an UNHAPPY HOME for the bacteria. If you cannot afford test strips, just buy a purple (also called red) cabbage, next to the regular cabbage. Boil some leaves and drain. That is your test solution. Purple cabbage makes a near perfect pH 7 solution. Now, put some into a clean paper cup. It l... read more
