Beating MRSA with probiotic

Staph is all around us everyday... The question is how and why can it make us sick?
Dr. Bonnie Brassler of Princeton knows why:

We beat MRSA at our house with a course of Bactrim and Phillips Colon Health. It was
populating a family member's gut, causing pruritis, and causing abscess in those that
were genetically susceptible.

May I suggest that the solution isn't to try to kill it - that is impossible - but instead to
out compete it with good bacteria. Don't wipe down with Hibiclens instead roll in the
dirt, take a yogurt bath, bury yourself in the sand, and take a swim in the lake. Perhaps
our sterile lifestyles are the problem? Colitis is now being treated with poop
transplants... which is essentially a good bacteria transplant. Why not MRSA?

Good luck all...

What an illuminating talk and presentation, it should cause a lot of re-examination. It could make a difference in the future.

I like you idea of using good bacteria to out compete; it works in organic agriculture,so there is no reason why not except availability of the right kind of organisms and the right method of delivery for ordinary people to be able to afford minimally invasive treatment .

In the meantime, there are other natural therapies that seem to be producing satisfactory results,garlic water from natural garlic, for one. It kills MRSA on contact and garlic water baths get it into the bloodstream and kills bacteria all over the body.

Diarrhea, chronic or acute by whatever name is usually caused by bacteria and garlic water enemas kill those bacteria while a course of probiotics then restores the beneficial bacteria and normal bowel activity returns, at least in my own experience, that's what, predictably, happened. I pretty much knew these methods would work before I tried them.

People who are allergic to garlic should not touch it and should not breathe the fumes.

Once when I had suffered from food poisoning for a couple of weeks, I decided to try a garlic water enema and follow it with acidophylis and it knocked the diarrhea out immediatley and three days later, normal bowel movements returned to stay.

That's also when I discovered the benefits of a garlis water bath as there was still some upper abdominal discomfort so I soaked in a garlic water bath for 90 minutes and the nex day felt better than ever before and had lots of energy.

My purpose for being on this board is to tell people about my experiences and to explain how and why garlic works and bacteria cannot become resistant to it unless they develop a hard shell and that seems unlikely any time soon.

I am not a doctor and cannot give any medical advice, all I can do is discuss garlic and how it changes with various processes and how that is likely to affect people, places and things. People and their doctors should decide what's best for them.

You might consider reading the posts in this forum about what worked for people and what didn't. Maybe you will read about some things of concern to you and your family. Everybody's story is different

I would like to object to your comment alleging that staph is impossible to eradicate. This is not the case. It is pernicious and invasive for sure, but an eradication campaign can be constructed. It often involves containing and sterilizing all source of reinfection such as toothbrushes, bed sheets, door handles, etc. A long term course of antibiotics is administered (1-2 months), along with nasal antibiotics (a common source of reinfection). Dilute chlorine bleach baths can be used to disinfect and de-colonize the skin.

A russian patent exists that claims staph as the source of infant colic. Eradication of the staph was prescribed to the baby and the mother as a strategy to stop the colic. Asymptomatic staph is often passed from the mother to the baby via the mother's milk when nursing. The baby is unable to handle colonization of the intestine with staph, and so develops colic. Several areas on the mother were cultured, such as the nose, milk, gastrointestinal tract, etc. before and after treatment. Treatment consists of an initial "cleanse" using oral administration of staph phage and then a course of antibiotics to finish off anything the phage could not destroy. All cultures would come back negative after treatment and a 100% cure rate was possible.

Testing nares, armpits and other areas only shows there may not be MRSA colonization on that area at that moment. However, MRSA can lie dormant and undetected and colonise at a future time. Also, reinfection can happen to anyone at anytime within a hospital (HA) or community (CA).

Phage treatment may be the only solution to total erradication but most of us cannot afford it. Probiotics, garlic baths, immune boosting and natural medicines is the most affordable and the least damaging to the body to control MRSA. Antibiotics may contribute to decolonization for a period of time but for most will it will breakdown the good gut and skin flora needed to fight superbugs.
