Critique My Garlic Bath Method

I ask for the critique as I'm having mixed results.
Been reading the garlic (and many other) post on this forum for a
few weeks now. After having molluscum then staph for about a year
and a half now (and trying multiple clinical and holistic
strategies) I figure it's time to give garlic a shot.
I bought 7 bulbs of music toughneck garlic from a local organic
shop that grows it themselves, it was all they had left. The
'music' strand of garlic seems hot when I cut a piece off and put
it to my tongue.

I actually smash the garlic with a mallet and let it sit for
about 45 minutes before adding it to water to release the allicin
(I use about 60% of a decent size bulb per tub full). I don't have
a tub to soak in so I bought a 50 gallon plastic container (2 of
them for sturdiness). So I add the smashed garlic to the tub I've
filled with water and sit in it twice a day for 1 hour per
session. Areas I can't easily submerge I will keep damp with a
rag.

Cannabinoids from Cannabis Kills MRSA!

Hello,
I contracted MRSA in 2007, during a Emergency Room visit, and two other times in 2008. I'm fully aware of the limitations of today's antibiotics, and pharmaceutical companies lack of interest in developing new antibiotics.

I read in an article that some of the cannabinoids in cannabis have antibiotic properties, however in order to get too them they have to be extracted into a concentrate, in a certain way.

I made this extracted cannabis concentrate for an antimicrobial topical, and yes, it works!!! I gave some to someone I know who got MRSA on her arm, applied it three times a day, and in two weeks was completely healed with no side effects.

For folks in medical marijuana states I would suggest you get a cannabis card and seek out dispensaries that sell the concentrated cannabis oil.(it looks like grease)

Here's the article:

MRSA Effecting Work

I am a 24 year old female. I have been dealing with MRSA outbreaks
on my skin for almost 7 years now. It has gotten to the point that
the only antibiotics I can take are Zyvox(pill) and
Vancomyacin(IV). I am either resistant or allergic to all other
antibiotics. I now have to hospitalized for at least 4 days every
time I get another outbreak. My insurance doesn't like to approve
the Zyvox for some reason. It has gotten to the point where I
basically almost always have it. I feel like shit all the time. It
is affecting my personal life, my relationship and my work. I have
missed so much work being in the hospital I am afraid I am going
to lose my job. I don't believe I am healthy enough to work full
time as I always have an array of symptoms from the MRSA and other
health issues as well. Who wants to hire someone that is going to
be in the hospital once a month? I feel terrible to put all the
pressure on my boyfriend when it comes to money. He's been great... read more

How I treated my bacterial issue with copper
Posted by Eric Olson
Last Reply January 13, 2017 at 14:37
Started January 13, 2017 at 13:53
Before antibiotics were invented copper and silver were being studied as methods of treating bacterial infections. This arose from a number of factors, including an instance where 200,000 copper workers were the only group that didn't catch cholera during a major outbreak : https://books.google.com/books?id=klILAAAAYAAJ&pg=PA81&lpg=PA81&dq=copper+miners+cholera&source=bl&ots=qgTdgqQqDX&sig=trbTT3t8nKQDMZ9mPJtznpLbdqU&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjrka_rlL_RAhVL0FQKHY5HDAMQ6AEIMTAF#v=onepage&q=copper%20miners%20cholera&f=false

My issue is antibiotic resistance in secondary bacterial infections I always get as a result of the common cold. I am sharing this information with this community because all bacteria, including MRSA, appear to react in a similar way to copper: they die. For an example of this in MRSA see: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y5Q8NudHbdU

I am a 200 pound, 6'6 male with asthma. The last time I got sick it took three months and five different antibiotics to cure me. I w... read more

MRSA Conspiracy Theory
Posted by Tom
Last Reply January 13, 2017 at 10:37
Started February 15, 2007 at 21:39
I was doing some research on MRSA and found reports that Chlorine is a very effective killer of MRSA.

Also that one of the reasons MRSA is getting so hard to cure is that it mutates and gets stronger each time a substance doesn't kill "them all".

What if... one of the reasons that MRSA is becoming an epidemic is because of chlorinated public water supplies?

They say that it was put in the water to kill bacteria and other pathogens...

but that it is not in high enough quantities to harm humans.

Perhaps it is not killing all of the Staph germs... but just growing stronger and stronger strains until they are too strong for the immune system to combat any longer?

This effect could be happening on the skin from showering and bathing... and

internally from drinking it.

Has anyone looked into this possibility?

Maybe there is something to the old saying, "There must be something in the water."

most people on this forum have the "normal" form of mrsa which is found in hospitals.
but there are many agressive strains which are genetically altered forms

an agressive form is found in "ICE" users,Ice being a form of metamphetamine produced by genetically alter bacteria.this drug can only be produced in a sophisticated laboratory.
it is this form that continues to be be genetically modified.

currently "they" have produced strains of mrsa tha induce atrial fibrillation, heart attack, stroke as well as tissue eating strains and strains that turn your skin into leather and infect etire muscle groups.

mrsa is being added to marijuana as a delivering system ."they " have also created throat viruses that carrying the mrsa into your system. this method of delivery is used for introducing atrial fibrillation, heart attacks and strokes.

2 ointments...

I've had several outbreaks on my forehead over the last few years. I've been given
bactrim and been sent on my way. This time with a new doctor I was prescribed:

Doxycycline (take 2x daily)
Mupirocin ointment (2x daily)
Clindamycin ointment (2x daily)
Hibaclens (wash area with hibiclens daily)

I'm at a loss as to how I am supposed to put 2 different ointments on the area 2x
daily. Has anyone had experience with these ointments? With doxycycline?
Because this is on my face above my eyebrow id appreciate any advice or tips. I
was thinking about just using the mupirocin until its healed and then using the
clindamycin as a preventative measure. I've been given several refills and was
told to continue using the ointments forever!

My Infectious Disease Specialist Says......

Started March 31, 2006 at 08:08
I have a post from around 3/23 called Misdiagnosis and Maintenance if you'd like to get background regarding my story.

I had a one hour consultation with my ID, and wanted to know if I should get vanco rather than septra in order to completely knock out mrsa. I had a horrific break out on my face last month. The ID was emphatic in stating that with my MRSA (on the skin, not in the blood or lungs) vanco is NOT effective for decolonization. He said vanco should be used in many different situations, but not this type. There are patients that do vanco and may never have another break out, but they are still decolonized.

Here's some hope for those of you suffering regular/constant boil problems: The ID, who is the chief of infectious disease at a huge hospital, states that he has had patients decolonize, and that the vast majority of his patients, when practicing this regiment, have never had mrsa breakouts return, whether they are decolonized or not. Here's what he says to... read more

Bad taste in mouth with MRSA

Started January 19, 2008 at 21:19
My wife is a nurse in a major hospital. She was told she has MRSA after surgery to open her sinuses. She has also had lung disease in the past. She washes her sinuses out twice a day with a pump and saline water. Now all the time she has a really bad taste in her mouth. It is very bad with a sweet taste. HAS ANYONE ELSE HAD THIS BAD TASTE IN THEIR MOUTH?
The Sunday after Christmas I took her into the emergency room. She had an outbreak on the end of one of her fingers. She was given an IV antibiotic. They said this was for all other staff infections but not for MRSA. She was told to watch her finger. If it didnít get better it was MRSA. Two doctors and two nurses worked with her. Not one of them used precautions. We informed them at the start that she had MRSA.
The hospitals in the US are very lax with this bug. There are other countries that now screen every person for MRSA before they are included in the general population.

Dry Needling - MRSA
Posted by Dewey

Started December 28, 2016 at 16:25
I acquired MRSA from a Dry Needling session with a Physical Therapist. I won't go into all that I have been through - most of hit has already been shared in the Forum. I just wanted people to be aware of this procedure that is gaining popularity which is, they take a filament needle and insert it into a muscle - looking for a trigger response. Essentially it breaks the pain cycle and sends a message to the brain to release the tight muscle(s). I had been getting these sessions for 3 months...until after one session and in 24 hours an abscess was apparent at the dry needling site. I've never had any skin conditions in my entire life. 4 months later I am in the struggle. The Dry Needling procedure works...but there are risks...I am pretty sure I signed a waiver so I have no recourse. Be aware of this procedure the outcomes that could happen.
