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."

Dry Needling - MRSA
Posted by Dewey
Last Reply December 28, 2016 at 23:14
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.

Infectious disease specialists

Many of you are recently diagnosed with MRSA and in panic mode. I totally understand, for I am a MRSA survivor myself.

I think that although many doctors recognize MRSA, few are truly trained to really address it well. The ER is not the place to go for a cure. ER's are designed to simply stabilize patients until they can get treated by their family physicians or specialists.

Infectious Disease is a relatively new specialty. It is also among the fastest growing for diseases such as MRSA, VRSA, Lyme Disease and so many more are springing up all over the place. Therefor, please understand that most GPs are NOT trained to fight MRSA. This is where you simply waste time and often create larger problems if its misdiagnosed and therefor, improperly medicated.

If you needed to have a bone set, you'd seek out an orthopedic surgeon. If you needed to have your chronic sinus infections fixed, you'd go to an ENT. Well, if you have MRSA, you need a good Infectious Disease specialist. The... read more
