If anyone is looking for natural garlic, you can Google gourmet garlic and you will get a list of hundreds of growers nationwide. It will help to learn the different kinds of garlic and how they are different. Some are mild, some are medium and some are hot to very hot. Hotter garlics usually have more allicin, the active result of crushed garlic. They all have something to say, learn from them.

have responded to me are being deleted?!

The products forum link is broken so I cant try looking there.
I haven't found the rules anywhere & I can't find a way to
send private messages. So how do I go about finding the
answers I need to help save my mothers life , if my posts are
deleted before I have a chance to read the responses?

Im not trying to cause problems. Im not trying to come off
sounding rude either , so if that is the case, Im sorry cuz
thats not my intent. Its just very discouraging to find such
an amazing forum full of people who have all the answers I
need to help save my momma but my posts are being deleted
before I can get the help I need

My son at 15 years old had MRSA. He was in football - had an injury and then hospitalized for MRSA for a week. Ever since then he has been in out out of Psychiatric Hospitals. He stopped high school also at 15 years of age- everything changed.... Three days before 18th birthday - it was given the name schizophrenia. He is now almost 23 - on medication and disability. I have always wondered if MRSA could have been the cause. Is there studies, doctors, etc... that are researching link between MSRA and mental illness? ts_long@yahoo.com

MRSA and Psychological disorders

I am posting this question/story in hopes of finding anyone else with similar situations or answers. I have a life long friend, who was diagnosed with MRSA some three years ago. She has always been a fun loving person and good friend. She is only prescibed meds when she has an outbreak, and the location of the MRSA is in her nasal passage. Her outbreaks occur 3 times a year or more and last up to a month. It seems however that the past 6 months, her personalityhas completely changed. I would describe this change as vicious and nasty. The question I pose is "Are there any connections out there with MRSA spreading to the brain and causing neurological disorders, including complete personality change?" I fear my friend will never be the same since these aren't mood swings, but rather a complete transformation over a six month period.

Thanks to all,
Concerned Friend

This is part one of several parts explaining a whole different way of using garlic to affect a different past of the body.

For over six and a half years I have been writing in this forum about garlic water baths and how and why they help people feel relaxed and with a temporary sense of well-being from the effects of garlic water baths. The garlic water use was my own discovery when I treated myself for some bacterial infections and it worked really well. During a discussion over dinner one evening during the Garlic Is Life! Symposium in Tulsa, OK in 2001, I learned from Dr. David Mirelman, PhD and head of the Chemistry Dept. at Weitzmann Institute in Rehovot, Israel and one of the most knowledgeable people in the world on the chemistry of garlic, about how the allicin in crushed raw natural garlic kills bacteria on contact and how it all works.

That extremely enlightening dinner discussion sent my wife and I searching the internet and buying scholarly tomes on garlic che... read more

Hello,
I'm a new to this forum and seeking advice. About 2 weeks ago, my boy-friend developed an abscess in his arm and got tested for MRSA which I just found out was positive. He is currently taking the antibiotics prescribed and I understand that he will always be a carrier and he could pass it on to me. So what does it mean to me? Will I get it if I am intimate with him? I understand that close contact with a carrier, is how someone gets it, but I'm healthy, so will I get it?? What about intimacy? We have been together for 4 years and planning on getting married. What does this mean for him? He is in his late 20's and very active and healthy. Please help.

Once you have had MRSA, do you always have it?

Just as most of you, I have a tramatic story involving MRSA. I gave birth to my son in October 2008. He was born by csection, not breathing. I had a vertical incision that developed into MRSA and was treated with IV antibotics in and out of the hosptial. My son also was admitted shortly after me again, for what they called a "virus." He too recieved IV antibiotics. My question is that since this time, my immune system has been shot! I have had repeated sinus infections (which antibiotics don't seem to help), and I am very tired. My question is, Do you always have MRSA, if you have had it and it has been treated? Might be a stupid question but just curious if my sinus infections could be attributed to the MRSA? Thanks for you help!

Recurring MRSA Infections

Since early 2004, my wife has had recurring MRSA outbreaks (probably about 4/5 times during that period) - mid2004, our son was born and he has had a positive MRSA id on a couple of absesses. My wife and I did the Bactrim and Rifampin treatment, and my son did a 10 day treatment of Bactrim. When it recently came back again in my wife and she saw the Infectious Disease specialist, she said that she only sees these recurring outbreaks in people with HIV, which in our case is virtually impossible. Do you think she is correct? Any advice is greatly appreciated as I am becoming very afraid. BTW, this website is a terrific resource and I really appreciate it.

Hi Guys, I got a small sliver in my thumb less than, 24 hours later and after
presenting red lines ran up my forearm and biceps and my shoulder pain is much
worse than broken neck., I was in hospital for a week of IV. Five months ago I had
a grueling 8 hour surgery for a massive broken neck, quad C1. Waiting for
cultures to see if in shoulder joint, uncomfortably close to my surgical site. I
broke my neck over a year ago and need to have oral surgery to remove my
broken teeth, I have had perhaps 20 oral abscesses, how dangerous is oral
surgery for me?

My husband became a MRSA carrier after one of his hospital stays. Although he has never had an outbreak, I ended up getting it...I've been plagued with MRSA infections for the last year. I just recently found out that it was actually MRSA because I finally got a boil tested. I had a boil on my upper thigh, then in the pubic area, then in both of my ears, then finally on my face (my chin). I was treated with Clyndamycin and Mupirocin ointment. In addition my doctor said to scrub my fingernails once per day with Hibiclens and a nail brush. It has been 2 months and thank God it appears to be gone though I haven't actually been retested...but no more boils. I have been scrubbing my nails with Hibiclens about 3 times per day...a little excessive but I don't care...Also, I keep alcohol wipes at my desk and use them on my hands a couple times a day and I use a lot of antibacterial gel throughout the day. I am VERY vigilant about refraining from (this was a problem before) "picking"... read more

bactroban for the last round that did nothing, and a 7 day course of bactrim which also
did nothing. could someone shed some light on why these keep happening. or a remedie

I developed mrsa after open heart surgery. A week after the surgery I was released back home only to return with stabbing pain and difficulty in breathing. I was diagnosed with mrsa and had surgery that day to relieve the pressure around my heart. I was put on Cubicin because my mrsa was resistant to Vanco. That was may of 2008, since then I have had several surgeries to debride the area and also to remove the wires holding my sternum together.Also, every time that I finish a course of antibiotics the mrsa is back within a month, usually in my chest area. In March of this year I went to the ER with stabbing pain under my left armpit, it was an aortic anurism and I had to have open heart surgery to correct it. They found mrsa inside my aorta that didnt show up on any scans previously.About a month after this surgery I felt the same pain and again went into the hospital to find out that I had a second anurism just below where the first one was. They sent me to the Cleveland Clinic to ... read more

I had MRSA in 2012 and was wondering if you can have joint pain in like your hands from this. I was so sick with MRSA in the hospital for a week and notice that my leg hurt so bad. I have to use a cane to walk now. The pain I have in my hands is like it hurts for about 3 days in one place and then it moves to another place and it is in my wrist real bad. It is chronic pain. I know this is has been 4 years ago but I feel like this has something to do with my pain. Thank you for anyone helping me with this.
