I haven't experienced anywhere near what your son has, but I have lost about a pound a week since I was first diagnosed. I think its around 30 pounds now since March.Most had to do with a thrush problem from the strong antibiotics and frequent bouts of diarrhea and nausea. Once that was fixed, I stopped losing weight.

Was your son very much overweight before he got sick? If so, that might account for his very large weight loss. If he was close to normal weight, that is excessive.

Just what medications are you currently on, please? Do you use any probiotics, like Activia or live yogurt? It may be that your upset stomach actually has something to do with your lack of good bacteria in your digestive tract.

You can check this out by simply eating some Activia or non pasturized yogurt (it can have fruit) at least twice a day for a week. You may find that your stomach will settle down.

Part of your problem is likely linked to malnutrition. If you can't eat a balanced diet, your body can't get what it needs.

Hey, I HATED yogurt. Always reminded me of baby spit. However, I sure did appreciate it when my nausea and diarrhea stopped. Now, I actually like the stuff. You can even use it in salad dressings in place of mayonaise.

Its certainly worth a try, costs next to nothing and can't hurt you. Please, sometimes you have to push the envelope a little.

Again, I'm all for western medicine and the proper use of antibiotics. However, you MUST support your body's own immune system. Ultimately, they pull out the PICC lines, and you are on your own.

If you go through old posts, the one common thread seems to be this: regardless of which type of MRSA you have, the people who are still standing seem to have added some natural supplements to help them counteract the side effects of the meds. I know it was the turning point for me. I'm no doctor and wouldn't pretend to be trained in anything other than what helped ME. I do care a lot about you. I follow your posts all the time. Do whatever you can to help your body.

As long as it doesn't eat at me like cancer, I could stand to lose a few pounds. That would be the only good thing about the MRSA for me. I hate it and I am very discouraged!

His weight loss probably is related to how he feels. He may be just upset or perhaps the meds are making him queasy. Not sure. I don't think MRSA necessarily makes us lose weight, but we feel so lousy, we just don't want to eat. I know the Zyvox made me sick as a dog!

I was diagnosed with MRSA a little more than a year ago. I've had it for about three years. I've lost 70 lbs the nine months. I don't eat as much as I use to but this cannot account for the weight loss. I injured my knee and have been on workers comp. throughout this period. Because I do not work and get no exercise, I think perhaps MRSA may be a contributing factor.

I had a terrible case of poison ivy 5 years ago. That year I lost 50 pounds.ionly
weigh 98 pounds now.i went from 146 pounds to 98 pounds in 10 months.i
doctored with several different specialists no one ever came up with a reason.i
got Mrsa from the poison ivy before I started the weight loss so I always believed
that the mrsa had something to do with it. I still can not gain weight and it is
upsetting because I am too thin.eh6737

Hello Mike -

If you will check out the Garlic Success Stories thread in this forum and read the stories posted by people in this forum about their experiences with garlic water baths, you may find some things of interest to you. If you do, you might check out my garlic and garlic water posts in this forum to see what they are talking about.

Commercial antibiotics are rapidly losing their ability to kill bacterial infections like MRSA and there will come a time in the relatively near future when they will not work at all due to antibiotic resistance. The pharmaceutical has no reasonable replacement drugs under development and when the Antibiotic Apocalypse sets in , millions of people will die unless there is something else people can use. There is. Several natural antimicrobials are not subject to antibiotic resistance and still kill such infections such as natural(non-irradiated)garlic, curcumin, Oregano oil and some other herbs that have been used for thousands of years and still work but the medical -industrial complex refuses to consider using them because they cannot be patented in their natural form.

The modern medical extortion industry has no interest in curing people, only maximizing their indecent profits at the expense of the sick and dying. What I am discussing here is not modern medicine but ancient herbal folk remedies that still work as well as they always did because they are not affected by antibiotic resistance. Only man-made antibiotics are affected by antibiotic resistance because they must be able to chemically bond with a receptor on the surface of a bacterium in order to kill it. Natural antimicrobials like garlic kill bacteria in a more direct way and DO NOT need to bond with any receptor to kill bacteria. They kill on contact, the trick is getting the allicin produced by crushing raw natural garlic into a situation where it can come into contact with bacteria almost anywhere it goes in the body. The garlic water posts in this forum discuss in detail how this is accomplished painlessly and easily at home for a tiny fraction of what the medical industry charges. Garlic from China that has been irradiated is dead and cannot produce allicin and will not work. It was actually good garlic until the distributor irradiated it to keep it from sprouting.

The more people know about natural herbals, the better their chances of surviving longer; the less they know and use, the poorer their chances for surviving resistant bacterial infections.

Hope this helps - Good luck to you.
