Antibiotic Resistance and you.

Can we speak frankly for a minute? There's a serious problem threatening all of us. Everybody. Everywhere. From the poorest person in the world to the richest. All are potential victims. None are exempt. That threat is bacterial resistance. Doesnít sound very harmful, butwhat is it and where does it come from?

Mother Nature has pulled the rug of time out from under we arrogant humans while we were laughing, pointing fingers and making fun of her quaintness. You have to go back almost 100 years to understand. Back then, bacterial infections were running rampant, killing millions all over the world; that is, up until the invention of antibiotics, which finally stemmed the flood of bacteria. However; in order to be able to kill bacteria, antibiotics must be able to chemically bond with a receptor on the surface of the bacterium. Bacteria have been able to mutate new receptors that antibiotics cannot bond with and so are increasingly ineffective.

By comparison, garlic, an entirely natural plant, is not subject to antibiotic resistance as garlic kills in an entirely more direct way and is not affected at all by antibiotic resistance that makes pharmaceutical antibiotics expensive, useless toys of the rich which doctors are reluctant to let go of because they make so much money from antibiotics Thatís why they are shills for drug companies. Itís not about patient benefit, itís all about money Ė like Midas, everything they touch, they corrupt with their greed.

How garlic works is weird but effective. You crush a whole bulb of peeled garlic and let the garlic set in air for a few minutes before adding it to a warm tub of clear water, no soap and just soak in it for 60 to 90 minutes and then rinse off.

Because of the nature of garlic, the allicin created by the crushing mingles with the water and soaks into the skin , where it gets into the capillaries close to the skin and gets into circulation in the blood stream because thatís how things work in the body. Because of Allicinís dual chemo-electric nature, it is naturally attracted to bacteria, which carries a negative electrical charge. Neither the allicin nor the bacteria can avoid this natural attraction and when the allicin comes into contact with the bacteria, it penetrates automatically into the interior of the bacterium, causing it to swell up and burst, killing the bacterium. Bacteria cannot survive this encounter and perishes. Every time. It is a law of nature. It works more effectively than anything they have and costs only a few cents to grow and they hate it.

It is seriously time to think about what youíre going to do the next time your doctor tells you that your $1,000 antibiotic isnít working and the drug company doesn't care.,

Your choices are fairly simple, you can hope for the best or grow your own garlic. Pick one.

So...Anyone else got any ideas about how to deal with antibiotic resistance? Anybody??? Doctors? Pharmacists? We're waiting to see how you deal with this problem of your own creation. Surely, an old fart like me can't be the only one in the world with an answer that actually works? Or, can I? The fact that garlic water baths work even against the most resistant strains of MRSA ought to say something to someone. At least give the big rich 'uns an idea of where to begin looking if they care to solve the problem.

I predict a breakthrough in the development of GMO garlics that will result in a patentable lifeform of garlic that can do some interesting things but it won't give them any new or exclusive thing that can't be duplicated in effects in other non-patentable forms of garlics. It will simply give them a platform they can leverage into a fortune on their own terms with a patent they own. Without the exclusive patent and the income, they will not do it. It's not about saving lives, it's about amassing fortunes.

Any way you look at it, the immediate answers will be in garlic. New or old. It's all in knowing how to use it to get the results you need.
That's what my posts are all about; ordinary people need to have something they can use to defend themselves and their families against this upcoming serious situation.

People just need to know how to grow their own natural garlic

In the two years since I wrote this article, antibiotic resistance has gotten worse and there are still no new replacements for antibiotics on the market yet or even in process to be released any time soon.

This makes the old-fashioned herbal folk remedies more important to know and grow some of your own garlic to use in the garlic water baths. Please read the garlic and garlic water posts to understand exactly how and why it works.

So thankful I can across this site. Help! My 15 year old daughter has boils on her
face. They stay for months. I am very reluctant to take her back to the
Dermatologist, Doctor just told her to wash her face more! I know she had MRSA
on her knee about 4 years ago. I feel it never left her body. I think it settled in her
sinuses and would like to try a garlic wash of her sinus cavity.
We have worked with an herbalist who has her on oral garlic and a slew of other
So here we are.
My questions:
1. How do you prep the water for a garlic netti pot wash?
2. Do you boil the water, add garlic, let it set, strain it and add salt as you would a
regular wash?
3. How do go about putting a warm compress on a boil on the face? I have
soaked a washcloth and set it on the boil with garlic water but they cool too
4. Does anyone have suggestions on how they have done hot compresses for
boils and keep it warm more than a few minutes?
My poor daughter has had one by her eye for 3 months now. They never come to
a head and are a dark blue-purple color from the blood collection underneath.
I have worked in a hospital for years as an R.T. And I know the answers are not
more prescriptions. For acute care and trauma, we can save you, but keeping
people healthy is a joke. There is no such thing as "healthcare"
Any suggestions no information would be a huge Blessing, I have been praying
for answers and finally feel God has lead me to your site.
Thank you, Angel

Hello Angela -

First and most importantly, I am not a doctor of any kind and do not want to be one and I cannot give anyone any medical advice of any kind. All I can do is help you understand the nature of natural garlic and how its characteristics change depending on how it is processed and used.

Oral garlic is not the answer as it will not stop a raging infection but a series of immersions in or applications of garlic water containing allicin will stop bacterial infections no matter how resistant the bacteria may be to pharmaceutical antibiotics, crushed raw natural (non-irradiated) garlic water will make it go away and stay away.

A mild garlic water solution with all the debris from the crushed raw garlic filtered out can be added to the normal salted water used in Neti pots in the standard way. If you need to boil your local water before using it in a Neti pot, boil it before putting the garlic in it as the heat would kill off the allicin.

If you have a bathtub, it is better to do garlic water baths rather than hot compresses. If you have to use compresses, you'll just have to change them often. The water does not have to be hot just a comfortable temp will do. It is more important to have the right kind of garlic water than it is to have heat though warm water is more comfortable than cold.

Please read the garlic and garlic water posts in this forum to learn more about how and why it works. Be sure to read the Garlic Success Stories thread about people's experiences with it.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for your quick response. My daughter is getting in the bath now! I will
assume that since we can't soak her face, just the absorption of Allicin circulating
will do. We have been crushing raw,live garlic and putting it on some of the boils.
She said it does sting a bit, but that means it is working! I also made hot garlic
water and had her inhale the steam and let it hit her face with the steam and a
towel"tent" over her head.
Thanks so much for the netti pot solution. I was unsure if the salt would react
with the garlic and decrease its potency for the sinus wash.

I really am unsure if these boils are MRSA, but I really have no way of knowing
with out a culture, and it doesn't really matter the garlic will kill it either way.

I have read so much on this site, and can't thank you enough for the info. I knew
of garlic and all its benefits, I just needed some guidance and experience in how
to apply and utilize its God given power.
Thank you so much and God Bless.
Warm Regards,

I know of no reason why a person's face couldn't get wet, I submerge my whole head at times when I do garlic water baths, which are rare now. It allows for more direct contact and that helps the process.

Another little trick is to take the garlic crusher with the mangled, skelly remnants of the garlic in it and deeply inhale them through the nose to help kill MRSA in the sinuses and throat and even down into the lungs. An important study once showed that the fumes from crushed raw garlic can kill all bacteria out to 8 inches away over a few hours.

Once you learn about it and the many ways to use it, it is like discovering a whole "new" miracle drug. That's why I post here, to let people know so they can help themselves and their families at home with garlic they grow themselves in their own back yards.

If the old-fashioned herbal folk remedies work, why not use them?

Thanks, Bob, I have been using crushed raw, live garlic in gauze and have been
holding it on some of the boils. 10-15 minutes at a time. She soaks in the tub
about 40 minutes a night, 3 nights in a row. I really haven't seen much change in
any of these boils on her face. We ll keep at it though. She thinks I am crazy, but
she does it anyway.
She does not want to put her face in the tub water, so we ll just continue with the
small compresses.
If this is something other than MRSA shouldn't garlic kill it anyway?
I am under the assumption that garlic would kill any bacteria. Is this correct?
Best Regards,

40 minutes is not enough time; it needs to be at least 60 minutes and 90 is better. The whole idea is to overwhelm the body with allicin long enough to get around and do its job.

I don't know why she would be reluctant to put her face in the water if it will help her. Wrapping it in gauze and holding it on the boils is largely relying on the fumes and the garlic water is more effective, sooner. direct contact with garlic water is the fastest and most effective use of the garlic and when one wants to get rid of the MRSA bad enough, one will let the garlic water do its work. What aroma there is goes away overnight followed by a morning shower.

These garlic water baths have been my original idea and I did not get the idea from anyone, it is just a conclusion I came to in trying to figure out how to get allicin into the bloodstream and the idea worked out perfectly and with no complications. I wrote some things in a website of mine about it and when Lady K read that, she invited me to post here to discuss garlic because few people know much about it. Before my first post I knew I was going to write about garlic water so I did a Google search for it and found only one other thing listed and that was of a Scottish doctor in the late 1800s who suggested garlic water baths for his patients who had infections and some used them and got well but some abhorred the smell of garlic so bad, they did not do the baths and died. Just for kicks, last year I did another search for garlic water baths and found hundreds of links, all based on my posts here in this forum.

One time, somebody mentioned taking those really expensive garlic pills and I suggested she would get more benefit from them by putting them in her bath water instead of swallowing them. Shortly after, a new website sprung up offering to sell these pills for garlic water baths to cure almost everything.

One thing I know is that one must put getting rid of MRSA as their number one priority and all other things must become secondary considerations when survival and health are involved.

And, yes, these garlic water baths can kill all bacteria but they must be used properly and the more direct exposure, the better. Actually, the half-life of allicin is less than half a minute because the immune system recognizes it is not a natural part of the human body and attacks it and kills it but when a person is in a bathtub full of allicin water, there is a constant flow of allicin into the bloodstream and it overwhelms the immune system for as long as one is in the water but when they get out of the water, the incoming stream of allicin stops and the immune system catches up to and kills the remaining allicin in the system but if one is in the bath long enough the allicin can do its job before the immune system catches up with it. That is why a series of at least one a day garlic water baths is important, there's less bacteria to knock out each time. Some started with 2 a day.

Thank you so much for your responses. We ll continue with garlic baths for
longer period of time. I am not entirely sure we are dealing with a MRSA, I do
know she had it about 5 years ago on her knee. Either way I know it is some sort
of skin infection, as these are not just the usual blemishes.
Thank you for helping so many people. I am sure this information has saved lives.

Best Regards

Angela, you might want to consider using LED Light Therapy in conjunction with the Garlic baths. Light therapy devices that provide blue, red, and near-infrared LED light can help heal most weird skin issues to include mild acne and rosacea. Blue LED light therapy kills MRSA but can't cure a systemic problem. Hopefully, the garlic baths will do their work, and all will be well.

Bob, or anyone else who has had a similar experience with success,

Since the boils/acne are on my daughter's face I will assume the baths are
beneficial, since the allicin would be circulating through out her body,
(she's been soaking for an hour) she has been soaking the one on her chin in
the bath since she can somewhat dip it in the water, and putting a wash cloth
soaked in garlic water on the others while in the tub.
Does this sound therapeutic?
Should we expect these boils to come to a head and burst, or just be re-absorbed
by her body?
Has anyone used essential oils? Tea tree? Oregano? Lavender? With carrier or
neat with success?
Thank you,

Many people, especially those of British descent, hate the smell of garlic. Over history, the British were the only Europeans that abhorred the smell of garlic and did not include it in their diets. They ridiculed garlic-eating people and directed hatred and intolerance toward them and discriminated against them at every opportunity.

Yes, garlic has a strong aroma but most people find it less detestable than the odor of rotting flesh. The choice belongs to the victims of MRSA (notice I did not say patients but victims).

Medical science is in the process of abandoning people to this disease because they feel that they cannot make nearly enough money from antibiotics so they are just letting people die. IT will get MUCH WORSE as time goes by.

People need to make decisions based not on how something smells temporarily but the results achieved with a particular therapy.

There was Scottish doctor in the 1890s who recommended his patients with infections do garlic water baths. Those patients who did recovered from their infections; those who hated the smell of garlic so bad they refused to do the garlic water baths, died. The garlic aroma is temporary; death is permanent. Pick one.

Good luck to you.

Oh, yeah, I forgot to answer one of your questions about whether boils come to a head and burst or whether they just dissolve; in my experience the boils do not come to a head but just go away.

Hope this helps.

Good luck to you and your daughter.

Thank you,Bob, she definitely is looking better.
Been taking an hour bath at night covering the part of her body that can't be
submerged with soaked washcloths. Covering her face with one and constantly
changing it. Washing everything, afterwards. Started using bone broth, since
she was on heavy antibiotics for Lyme 3 years ago, up the probiotics. No
sugar,dairy,grains or processed foods. Hoping to see it really clear up soon.
Considering netti pot with garlic water. She does not seem opposed to the idea.
She has seen me use it for years.
I have read two different posts, one you stated use salt I. The netti, and one with
out. So I am confused how to approach this.
I did use the garlic water netti on myself with salt. Stung a bit, but not horrible.

So here goes.
1 boil the water
2 pour over crushed garlic that has sat for at least half hour.
3 strain it of garlic particles.
4 let it cool
5 add to netti pot........with or without salt?
Am I missing anything?
How often should we do this?
Thanks Bob so much!
Best Regards,

Ps, we're of Italian decent, garlic is a food group!

Hi Bob,
I will begin the garlic treatment to see if it helps. I've had
issues with boils from MRSA for about a year now and have tried a
lot to try fix this. It seems to continue to return. I had a lot of
success by taking vit C, Manuka honey and some other nutrients. The
boils were not as painful and didn't require anti-biotics to help
them clear up.
I agree with your comments on the medical profession. My experience
has been of them ignoring this as a serious problem. I really
believe they don't know how to effectively treat MRSA, hence why
they laugh it off and keep pushing anti-biotics.
One thing that baffles me is if you were to test everyone, almost
half the population have the MRSA bacteria on their skin. However
only a certain small % are effected by boils. I've never found an
explanation as to why. Is it something in our DNA or our diet?
Looking forward to seeing what you think?

Please excuse my delay in replying, I have been out of town for a few days.

As far as the netti pot goes, I don't use one because I have no allergies but my wife does and she tells me the reason for the salt is to keep the water from creating a burning sensation in the nose and sinuses. If your use of garlic water in the netti pot with salt burns, you may be using too much garlic. It really does not take much garlic to get results; in fact, one study I read showed that the allicin can be diluted up 125,000 parts of water and still kill bacteria on contact. A little goes a long way.

Speaking of water, NEVER pour boiling water over crushed raw garlic because the high heat causes the allicin to break down into oily polysulfides that can be absorbed into the skin but cannot pass through the pores in the capillaries so they cannot get into the bloodstream because they are too large and wind up in the lymphatic system where they help the immune system but cannot get into circulation in the blood and cannot stop a raging infection the way allicin can. There's conflicting information from studies into what temperature is too hot for allicin but if you can stand to be in a bath, it is not too hot for allicin. If it is too hot for you, it may be too hot for allicin.

If you need to boil the water for your netti pot, then let it cool before adding a LITTLE garlic to the water and straining out the particulate matter.

Again, this is not well-researched medical science here, this is herbal folk remedies and we are all in the process of learning its capabilities and how to use it to get the best results.

Good luck to you and your family.

Hello John -

Welcome to the forum. I hope you soon have a nice warm bath that will help you relax and gain an enhanced sense of well-being and you can return to normal life.

As to your question wondering why so many people carry the germ but don't get sick, I can't say for certain but it is my opinion that it has to do with individuals' immune system health and their personal resistance. It may have something to do with the many toxins that are present in our food supply and the quality of water in the municipal water systems, not to mention all the forms of pollution in the cities where most live, just a guess.

Please keep us posted on your progress, I'm not a doctor and cannot give anyone any medical advice, all I can do is discuss natural garlic and how its properties change, depending on how it is processed and used and let people and their doctors make of these folk remedies what they will.

Good luck to you.
