In the last several months, 10 Alternative Medical practitioners have been murdered or died under suspicious circumstances, including several who have advised against vaccines. Has big pharma done something rash? Needless to say, it makes me wonder. Anyone else have any thoughts?

My Affordable Home MRSA TreatmentMy

A DIY home treatment for MRSA, is a affordable, natural, readily
available garlic infusion containing allicin. Allicin is produced when
the garlic clove is damaged, and can kill MRSA. You need allicin, the
MRSA killing component, not necessarily stabilized allicin, as one
costly product states. Based on my experience, there is more than
enough allicin, in my homemade garlic brew, to create a dramatic
benefit, despite, what the public is being told. The clove creates the
allicin, all you have to do, is to institute the process, and harvest
it. You need lot's of garlic cloves. I suggest you get the large bags
of peeled garlic cloves, sold by Costco and other stores. A food
processor that chops, some water, ideally distillled, a plastic or
glass bottle, a seive, and refrigerator... that's it. Place a number
of cloves into the processor. Could be 20, 50 etc. Then chop them to
particles. This releases the enzymes in the clove, to create allicin.

I have been dealing with vaginal MRSA for 5 months. I have had MRSA on my scalp,
breast and in my vagina this past year. I am currently on Dox. and the infection is not
going away. I had an immunoglobin panel done it I-gG came back low and I-gM also
came back low. I am tired of the medical profession. I want the MRSA gone and want
help. My ID doctor did not even re culture my vagina my urologist did. Who should I see,
Why can't I just get vancomycin by IV and get it out of me? My blood work is low
however not out of range. What could an immunologist do? I am sick of being sick.

hi all
I am somewhat flabbergasted. as some may know, I have posted a litany of genetically altered infections and I have laid this at he doorstep of medical corporations. for over 3 years I have been forced to survived by using novel herbal treatments.
now I have stubble on to the fact that aloes vera kills mrsa topically. I think it works internally as well but ti tell the truth I have been repeatedly being infect anew so I can't vouch for this 100% but it has a positive affect internally
but the most surprising serendipitous discovery is that cold pressed
SUNFLOWER OIL kills mrsa as well as tea tree and in some cases works on aggressive mrsa immediately and fastered and less toxic that tea tree oil. just apply it repeatedly through the day or when the aggressive mrsa tries to grow and sunflower oil stops the expansion and over a couple of days kills the mrsa. with first day infections it kills the mrsa within hours as long as you keep the skin moist with the oil... read more

I have had these recurrent boils on various parts of my torso, arms,

tea tree oil, topical antibiotics, phototherapy, etc. They will get
better for a while but are very persistent and tend to come back.
The ones that finally did heal left a scaly fibroid, the skin never

MRSA and Tonsiliths

Hi all,

I was diagnosed with MRSA of the throat roughly 5 years ago. It came on roughly a week
after I was diagnosed with mononucleosis, and a few days after I was hit with the flu. So
my immune system was pretty susceptible.

5 years later, I still have two or three small holes in the back of my throat that
occasionally fill with a solid-puss like substance and eventually "fall out" out.
Presumably I swallow these mostly, but when I have been able to spit them out, they
have a very strong sulfur smell.

Also after my spout of illness, I react badly to heavy dairy (Milkshakes are bad, cheese is
fine) and any amount of gluten.

I am also plagued with brain fog and cognitive issues like word recall and concentration.

Has anyone else had similar symptoms? Or better yet found any sort of solution?

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
where the MRSA infection was. Since then I have had 2 more deep wound

There is such a wealth of information on this site. What it lacks, though, is a wealth of photos. MRSA seems to come in different shapes and sizes.

I get impetigo once a week and this has gone on for over a decade. My mental state, as you can imagine, is completely ruined from this. No doctor I ever went to mentioned anything about MRSA and I'm just starting to learn about it. I wanted to know what form yours takes. Can it be possible I just get impetigo every week despite strict dietary restrictions, clean habits, etc? My skin turns red, a boil forms. I week yellow goo. It crusts over and heals in about three days. A week later this happens again forever until I die or go insane enough to committ suicide.

I had a positive mrsa culture at 20 weeks pregnant. I am

my OB suggested I talk to my PCP about decreasing my

advice or even get back to me before I deliver, so I was
wondering what options, if any, exist for decolonizing or
reducing bacteria colonization. Also, should I be
concerned about passing to baby during delivery or

I’m so glad to have found this forum. There seems to be truly helpful and reasonable information. I thought I would pass along something I’m finding helpful.

First I’ll give you background on me.

Since 2007 I've had three superficial skin MRSA infections. Thank goodness they all responded to Bactrim, and I have had no serious bodywide infections. However, even though I took two rounds of Bactrim in each case and persuaded my MD to prescribe the nasal gel, the MRSA returned.

It has returned a fourth time about 2 weeks ago - again as a superficial skin infection. I haven’t been to the MD but I KNOW those pimples.

Except for the first infection in 2007 (which came after a mosquito bite), none of these infections have been preceded by a break in the skin. From out of nowhere a pimple would pop up that turned out to be MRSA. My hygiene is fine - no other family members have been infected. After the infections, I used Hibiclens, Borax on my clothes, etc. But 9 mo... read more

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

Started July 27, 2015 at 16:30
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

Allicin and garlic water kill staph
Posted by Bob Anderson

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.

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
