Here is what works to hold down my MRSA attack

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

Several months ago I received a wound on my
leg from a rented tool. The wound was fine
until the fifth day. Then it started getting
inflamed so I did the hydrogen peroxide and
antibiotic ointment. On day 6 my leg itched
like it had an alien. I used a poultice of
epsom salt now about four times. My leg is
healing. I will try the raw crushed garlic in
any future occurrences combined with the salt.

MRSA Scar Tissue Pain and Pain Medication

My 19 year old son was bitten by an infectious spider and got a
secondary infection of mrsa that went septic and was treated in the
hospital for 10 days with vanco and clyndamyacin. He almost died. He
had terrible excruciating muscle spasms and rigor to the point of
screaming in the hospital that was episodic. They removed a softball
size amount of tissue from his upper thigh. He was on delauded, soma,
ladacain patches, phentonal patches and a generic torridal when sent
home. He was religious about his care and the wound healed over. He
now experiences horrible pain in his leg that shoots down to his toes
and is described as tight cutting violin strings and electrical
shocks. He ran out of the medications, many which caused side effects
of headache and nausea. He already was diagnosed at age 15 with
chronic vomiting syndrome and insomnia so this illness really slammed
him. His quality of life is now horrible. The primary care doctor we
just followed up wi... read more

is it? And how do I keep contracting it? Also does it suppose to burn?
I'm 29 years old. But I been through 3 strokes and 2 surgeries. For
moyamoya and this has nothing to do with my moyamoya. But it wakes me up

Bob, have you ever had MRSA?? Seems to me that you have a rather idealistic approach of an extraordinarily evil pathogen. Garlic helped in killing it in the fluid-filled pocket behind the eardrum. I had fresh garlic from the Amish, as pristine as it gets. However, I also used Kangen 2.5 acidic water and Melaluca in the ear. Took 3 months of that to get rid of it and 3-weeks to pull all the garlic out of the ear. I have done naturals for many years {product edit}. Garlic packs did nothing for festering L-form MRSA sores on my face in the sinus areas, and you cannot super-saturate your body enough with any of the garlics to kill the MRSA and L-forms that cannot be reached. I got rid of the colonized with infections of Draxin directly into the sores. You absolutely have to use antibiotics. Garlic is a much too simplified approach for such a diabolical pathogen. There are a number of other game-changers... read more

CConcerned about Zika virus?

Are people here concerned about the Zika virus? I am a little bit but only a little bit because I know how to kill mosquitoes in a way most people don't know about.

Wanna learn? It's easy. Peel and crush a whole bulb of natural(non-irradiated) garlic and cook it in about 6 or 8 ounces or so of oil until the crushed garlic becomes brown - I prefer coconut oil as it has a nice aroma. the garlic will form Diallyl Trisulfide (DATS) and also Diallyl Disulfide (DADS) as it cooks. After the crushed garlic has turned brown, turn off the heat and let it cool and after it is cool, filter out all of the particulate matter, leaving nothing but the oil. Then it can be used in either of two ways: it can be spread over the top of standing water to kill mosquito larvae in the water or it can be generously spread on one's exposed skin and it will kill any mosquito that lands on that person's skin although it will smell the DADS and may not land. The coconut oil gives it a pleasant arom... read more

MRSA with shoulder pain

Started September 1, 2008 at 07:08
My story starts( I think, or could have been sooner) around the middle of May, when I developed cellulitus after a medical procedure I had done the end of April 2008. I thought I had gotten rid of it with antibiotics,but a few weeks later I first developed a boil on my groin that ended up draining on its own after a few days, Next one happened about two weeks later on my right leg just above my knee. That was extremely painful and was quite a bit larger than a quarter, It also really started to hurt in my joint and I had a hard time walking on that leg, but sure enough it healed on it's own as well. About two weeks after that I had developed one on my hip and this was extremely painful and one small and less painful one on the lower lid of my eye.I was starting to feel quite sick and I started to throw up as well. I was admitted into the hospital that day, had a culture taken and was diagnosed as being MRSA positive. I was started on 3 different types of IV antibiotics, finally af... read more

I'm 57 years old the past four weeks I've had something strange around vagina area. I had gone to my daughters for visit with her and grandkids. After coming back home I noticed small blisters around vagina area which eventually turned into sores inside vagina that really hurt. After two weeks I started having heavy clear discharge that became infected green color. I started hurting really bad in abdomen, back and low down at this point I began to hurt in rectum area. I thought I had bad yeast infection so started Monistat 7, didn't help at all. During this time my grandson was diagnosed with MRSA had a huge sore on his leg from it. My husband called our doctor, told him what happened. He said get to a gynocologist sounded like vaginal MRSA. Both me and my husband had never heard of vaginal MRSA. After connecting all the dots makes perfect sense. I have an appointment for next week with gynocologist. I was up last night very nauseous and miserable from the lower pain and bur... read more

Can sudden/acute stress result in an outbreak?
Posted by Stephen
Last Reply February 11, 2016 at 12:08
Started September 25, 2011 at 20:01
For the time I've had MRSA, I've had a few outbreaks, where many new boils appeared at once. And what I've noticed is that whenever this happens, I'm usually very, very stressed-out.

As an example, a couple days ago, I was talking to a family member: A whole bunch of issues got dragged in, and it turned into a really big argument with shouting. This resulted in me crying and then having a severe panic attack that took a few hours to get over.

Then, a few hours after that panic-attack, I had one of the worst MRSA outbreaks I'd ever experienced. A bunch of new boils started growing on my arms and face, and I had to frantically spend the night treating it, watching for any early signs of new boils appearing so that I could get them before they got really bad.


I do know that stress is a great detriment to one's well-being, and can make a person susceptible to disease (which is how I suspect I got MRSA; I have chronic stress issues). But, can it really work this way -- can a p... read more

What’s Wrong with Hydrogen Peroxide…or Ozone?
Posted by Dave
Last Reply February 5, 2016 at 05:22
Started June 26, 2006 at 19:50
The June 26th, 2006 issue of Time Magazine had a short article on MRSA, entitled “Surviving the New Killer Bug” It was well written and should bring public attention to the seriousness of this new epidemic. However, one part of it did leave me confused.

At the bottom of the article was a section entitled “What You Can Do”. The first suggestion was to avoid getting cuts and scrapes (OK). Next it advised: “Thoroughly clean even superficial wounds with soap and water” (Still OK) – THEN it stated, in bold blue letters: “Do not use hydrogen peroxide” (????) Why is that???
Does anyone have any idea why hydrogen peroxide is bad to use or why it should not be used on MRSA?

Also, do you have any opinions about the use of ozone? Another thread in this forum warned: “Ozone therapy is very dangerous and does not work”. I will assume that the author was speaking about ozone injections and/or ozone bagging in lieu of professional medical treatment.
I, personally, would not us... read more

I was diagnosed with mrsa in 2008. I had a small bump on my vagina which
turned into an abscess and by the time my doctor had an ppen appointment
i couldn't walk. I was a daycare worker at the time and we had two
children infected children who's parents hid it from the daycare. I was
treated only to have it return to the interioi of my nose a month later.
I always had what the doctor said was a scare on my vagina. About 2
months ago i started having little pimples on my back that were causing
terrible pain. First my doctor said it was an allergic reaction when
they didn't get better she checked again and said its mrsa. She gave me
bactrum which i was allergic to an caused me to have colitis. I have
been eating nothing but broth and jello for 3 weeks now. I returned to
the doctor last week and was put on clindamycin for the mrsa andtwo more

Hi all , Just wanted to chime in on the forum with a personal experience.

I caught MRSA about 5 or six months ago, I had a scratch on my leg that went crazy, it started eating a hole in my leg, then spread to my chest, and eyes etc.

So I took antibiotics which caused anaphylatctic reactions and helped the stph to spread even further into my nostrils.

So I went looking for an alternative to the docotrs meds that w... read more
