[YEA] 07/12/2007: Amy from Austin, Texas: "When my gynecologist told me that my lesion was possibly MRSA since I had only a month before had a boil on my face, she said that after taking Bactrim for 10 days I should start putting Neosporin in my nose, if the MRSA infection was confirmed. I wanted to do something sooner, while still taking the Bactrim, and so researched and got some colloidal silver and put either drops or swabs of it in my nose 1-2 times a day for a week, as well as applying it to the wound with a swab. I read that it would not interfere with the antibiotics. The lesion had been lanced, and when I had my follow-up, I was healing very well. I have had no more boils yet. I can't say for sure that the colloidal silver did the trick, but from what I've read, it can be very effective with short term use (10 days or so) and if I get another boil, I will apply some directly right away."
[YEA] 03/16/2007: Tony from Chicago, IL: "Thanks for the great info on MRSA. Below is a link from the US Patent Office of a CS product scientifically tested against MRSA. Scroll down to "10" (near bottom of page) for detail. The CS brand tested is from American Biotech Labs (aka American Silver). It is sold under different labels. It is sold at GNC stores as "Silver Biotics". Because the link for the patent is a mile long, I suggest you go to the USPTO website and do a search for the patent number.
http://patft.uspto.gov/ Patent nbr: 7,135,195
Lastly, there is also this info: "William Beaumont Army Medical Center has proven ABL's SilverSol Technology effective at killing all three forms of leishmaniasis, which causes the "Baghdad Boils" infecting U.S. soldiers, at a concentration of just 1-2 parts per million." http://www.cliftonmining.com/aboutABL.html
[YEA] 01/19/2012: James from Akron, Ohio, Usa replies: "Two years ago I have MRSA staph infection. My left arm swelled up to double the regular size. I went to the hospital, they put my on an IV of antibiotics and the swelling went down a few days later. For a year and a half I would get reoccuring boils and swelling. I tried everything: Epsom Salts, Manuka Honey, Tea Tree Oil, etc. IT was only when I used Colloidal Silver in a nebulizer(it helps with asthma too) and externally on the boils that I noticed immediate relief from the staph infection.
I am thoroughly convinced that colloidal silver cures MRSA, though I am just speaking from personal experience."
04/12/2012: Liljen from Ravenna, Ohio/usa replies: "Can I ask you what brand of Colloidal silver you used and at what dosage as a friend of mine is battling this for the last year and would like to know where is the best place to get it?"
Cornstarch Body Powders
[WARNING!] 07/31/2009: Helen from Clearfield, PA: "People who are susceptable to MRSA and boils shouldn't use cornstarch-based body powders. Why: because cornstarch is a perfect growth medium for staph, and it is my contention that the use of cornstarch-based body powders has been a contributing factor is the rise of staph infections in general. But the more staph infections there are, the more likely one is to eventually get a resistant form, and who wants to play those odds?
p.s. Staph can cause boils without neccessarily being antibiotic resistant."
05/11/2011: Chris from Los Angeles, California, Usa replies: "That is exactly correct. Cornstarch fosters not only the proliferation of certain bacteria, but also fungi. Talcum-containing products should be substituted."
[YEA] 10/30/2007: Sharon from Boyce, Louisiana: "I have been fighting MRSA for several years now and it just keeps on. However if the information I have helps any of you then I am glad.
Cubicin' http://www.cubicin.com/ CUBICIN® (daptomycin for injection) is indicated for the following infections: Complicated skin and skin structure infections caused by susceptible isolates of the following Gram-positive microorganisms: S. aureus (including methicillin-resistant isolates), Streptococcus pyogenes, Streptococcus agalactiae, Streptococcus dysgalactiae subspecies equisimilis, and Enterococcus faecalis (vancomycin-susceptible isolates only).

Dietary Changes, Turmeric
[BETTER BUT NOT CURED] 02/27/2010: Callins from Los Angeles, Ca: "I want to say that the info on the site is extremely helpful. Turmeric definitely works for MRSA, as does the grapefruit seed extract, and if you have heard of curcumin, it is amazing with three capsules a day. But it wasn't until I cut the bread and sugar out of my diet that I really saw the difference. I started to add banannas to my diet thinking it would be ok(too many- 3 a day) and it gave me a breakout within 30 hours, so apparently fruit raises the sugar in the body? I would love to hear some feedback."Replies
08/26/2011: F from Timisoara, Romania replies: "Yes, usually fruits contain lots of sugar. I'm not sure about banannas, but from what I've read on other websites you should avoid fruit. On the other side of the barricade we have dark green vegetables that seem help."
Eliminate Sugar, Take Acidophilus
[YEA] 04/10/2010: Kristi from San Diego, Ca: "I have had 2 cases of a MRSA infection where the doctors didnt know anything, gave me antiobiotics, and then cut and drained them. I haven't had one in 1.5 years after cutting out the majority of sugar from my diet. I take acidophilus in the morning, try to eat limited processed foods and as little as preservatives and sugars as possible. No soda, candy, chips, ect. I havent another infection and feel alot healthier."Replies
06/27/2011: Worried from Columbus, Usa replies: "Do you drink acidophilus as a probiotic capsule or drink as milk?"
Garlic Treatment for MRSA
Home Remedy Ingredients:
- Garlic - 1 Clove
Eating a clove of raw garlic daily can help kill a staph infection from the inside. You can also crush the garlic into a paste and apply it to a boil for 10-20 minutes at a time, 2-3 times a day. Don't keep it on any longer than that or you will burn your skin.
12/25/2011: Unyime from Uyo, Akwa Ibom: "Hello there,
Please I want to know how to use Garlic in treatment of staph. I hail from Nigeria."
[YEA] 08/12/2011: Mommy V from Washington, D.C., Usa: "My family (self, hubby, children, father, mother-in-law, sister, niece, nephew... ) suffered from recurrent MRSA skin infections for several years. At the worst of it, my husband had multiple boils the size of baseballs over his legs and backside. My sister and her 2-yr-old daughter went through half a dozen types of antibiotics over the course of a year, and even after resistance tests the MRSA would recur a month or two later. We saw infectious disease doctors, pediatriciants, naturopaths... We disinfected everything over and over. We eliminated sugar, white flour, preservatives, dyes, and MSG from our diets. (We lost a lot of weight and my allergies cleared up, but the MRSA kept returning.)
One night, after hours of prayer, I stumbled across a page by Bob Anderson (garlic farmer) on the MRSA Forum USA. He explained that while the allicin in garlic is potent enough to destroy MRSA on contact, it does not survive in stomach acid and therefore doesn't reach the skin when injested. He recommended bathing in garlic water. Sure enough, within a week my husband and both of my boys had clear skin!! In the 4 months since we tried garlic baths, my husband has had only one recurrence (which happened after we stayed a week in the home of someone else who had MRSA) and one garlic bath cleared up the boil overnight. WOW! What a relief! Praise God, whose "medicine" is so brilliantly complex (and free from side-effects).
1. Crush 4-6 cloves of non-irradiated garlic (look for white/green sprout in middle of each clove)
2. Let stand 30-90 minutes to allow allicin to develop.
3. Add garlic to warm bath. Submerge as much of the body as possible.
4. Soak for an hour or two, two or three times a week."Replies
08/24/2011: Mommy V from Washington, D.C., Usa replies: "Important note: It is likely that the first garlic bath will bring existing boils to a head. (This may make boils/rashes appear worse after the first bath. ) But, keep going... things should improve rapidly with subsequent baths.
Also, trust your intuition. If you sense skin irritation, take a couple days off. If you are bathing children, use less garlic and shorter baths."
[BETTER BUT NOT CURED] 03/14/2011: Ana from North Lauderdale, Florida: "Garlic sliced in half with some criss cross cuts or pounded on once or twice placed directly on the boil worked for me. I have colonized MRSA and my less-than-willing-to-try-anything-other-than-lancing-and-antibiotics husband has it as well.
I have been suffering with back to back boils for 3 months. I tried ACV; drinking it and placing it on the boil. It did help burst it but it did not help keep them at bay. Tumeric applied to and taken helped to alleviate the pain and swelling somewhat, but it did not burst them or stop them. Campho-Phenique did not work for me, and Ichthamol Ointment helped to drain them after they burst but I cannot say it actually helped burst them.
I put garlic directly on my latest boil at the first sign of it and it made it go away before it got very painful. For the first 10-15 mins the burning was intense. it did subside and I actually felt a kind of "let down" in the boil. I left it on for an hour. The pain was greatly diminished. I did it again the next day and there wasn't any real burning or anything. I left it on overnight. The third day, I could no longer see or even feel where the boil was.
I started taking one clove of crushed garlic with water today and plan to take it every day to see if this helps to prevent the boils as I see it works to stop it once one starts.
I have been taking echinacea in white tea with unprocessed honey throughout.
I cannot stress enough how careful you have to be about your hygiene when you're having an outbreak . Wash your sheets in hot water, change them often, do not use your towel more than once, bathe at least twice a day, wear gloves when handling the boil and wash your hands often.
I used silver bandages on another boil that had drained and it healed much quicker than others I had before. These bandages don't stick to the skin as harshly as others do so I had less irratation to the surrounding skin as well. I found them online.
Thanks to all that contribute to this site."Replies
[YEA] 05/17/2011: Ana from North Lauderdale, Florida replies: "update-5/17
I have been boil free for 2 months now. I was taking raw garlic everyday for about 2 weeks after my original post and cut that down to 3 times a week since. I also take echinacea in white tea with unprocessed honey for one week before my period and this combination has worked to keep me boil free for the last 2 months. Nothing else had worked before."
[YEA] 12/27/2009: Naturalhealthmom from Miami, Fl, USA: "Raw Garlic for MRSA
I have been fighting recurring MRSA infections (boils) for over 18 months now...I tried Allicin, Colloidal Silver, Turmeric, Grapefruit Seed Extract, Oregano Oil, Oive Leaf Extract, Rife Machines, MMS...you name it, I have probably tried it. Last week, I started to get another boil- it was spreading and I started a fever of 100.5...I had nothing to lose and so I crushed 2-3 garlic cloves in my garlic press, let it sit for 14 minutes, mixed the garlic then THOROUGHLY with honey and gulped it down in one swallow. Make sure NOT to do this on an empty stomach!!!! Within 4 hours, my fever broke and the redness started to retreat. After all the other things I tried and all the frustrating months, amazing that the raw garlic took care of it! I proceeded to do the garlic 2x a day for 10 days and and am now going to take it 1x a day for the next two weeks to make sure it has killed all the MRSA staph. I am also drinking Phenomenal Water. I hope this helps many people. I also want to note that I used organic garlic and raw honey."Replies
02/24/2011: Alex from Long Beach, Ca,united States replies: "I'm also taking pHenomenal!! So glad to see someone else out there who has found that amazing product! I've also been taking goldenseal, have you tried that one before? Also what kind of honey are you using with the garlic? And have you tried tea tree oils before? I'm wanting to try tea tree oil in my nose but I'm kind of hesitant on how thats going to go, let me know if you have any opinions on that! Thanks!"
01/10/2012: Vanislegirl from Vancouver Island, Canada replies: "I have tried antibiotics and it definitely made things worse. I've been using baking soda/seasalt/aloe pastes and that seems to be working, but still 3 small boils I'm dealing with. I've recently added ground flaxseed to the paste and hope that helps. I'm going to do the crushed garlic both internal and external with manuka honey starting today. Hopefully I'll repost and let you know I'm cured! Its been 3 years (I was misdiagnosed with hormonal acne until 4 months ago when I got extremely ill from the mrsa)."
02/07/2012: Max from Adelaide, Sa replies: "Recent study found hot drinks ( tea and coffee) protect against MRSA. I don't think it cures it once you have already got it but regular tea and coffee drinkers are less likely to catch MRSA. Note, this study only tested MRSA in the nasal cavity they are yet to discover whether the effects are systemic.
[YEA] 12/15/2008: Sunny from Carlisle, PA: "Garlic (actually Allicin from ____) cured my MRSA. My husband got the first, he was tested by his doctor and was found to have it. He took antibiotics. It went away and came back a second time. Again he treated it with antibiotics from the doctor. Shortly after he got it. I got a painful boil just like the one he had. I did not go to the doctor to be tested. I was sure that it was the same MRSA that my husband had.
I took the strong garlic ___ orally, six a day. I also used the cream. My MRSA when away. I never had to go to the doctor. It has not come back. It was expensive but it was worth it."
12/22/2009: Shelby from Newburgh, Indiana replies: "I was wondering about non-MRSA staph infections and allicin - does it take a lower dosage or the same? I see predominantly MRSA cures, however I was wondering if the same can be applied across the board to any staph infection.
Currently I am taking a clove of garlic a day, 2 spoonfuls of manuka honey, 1,000mg of turmeric plus whatever I drink or eat with it in it mixed with cayenne pepper. The cephalexin I tried scared me, 500mg 4x a day for 10 days - I made it one day before my head felt as though it was going to explode and I couldn't breathe. I was just curious to know if I should be tested for the MRSA or what or if I should give the allicin a whirl. I am tired of feeling crummy."
01/05/2010: Shelby from Newburgh, In replies: "Thought I would give update - I actually completed the entire antibiotic round given to me and the infection seemed to be under control. Once the keflex ran out, I went to the doctor for more, but he told me I was fine and to just use cortisone for the itching. I get the sneaking suspicion he was blowing me off, though the rash is still on my face but doesn't burn like before. I have a feeling it is almost gone and I don't want it to flare up again worse than before. Turmeric had gotten it under control, I will try crushed garlic to kill the rest of it off and see what happens. Quite the bugger to kill..."
[YEA] 07/14/2008: Christy from Springfield, OR: "I did it! I cured my son's MRSA that he was fighting for quite sometime. The boils were hurting him so bad it broke my heart. I just about came to the end of my rope when the physicians wanted to try him on another dose of antibiotics. I did my research on Allicin figured I had nothing else to loose. It took sometime to find the mg of Allicin that I was looking for (450 mg). I found some that was 490 mg and cost 1/4th as much as I was quoted at other nutritional stores. 7 pills for 5 weeks and he is cured! The doctors can't believe it. This Garlic Onion complex that I found is a LIFESAVER!! If you have trouble finding it locally please ask me and I will let you know of the company that I use. Good luck to everyone. MRSA can be beat!"Replies
11/30/2008: Lanette from Victoria, BC Canada replies: "I have have MRSA for the 4th time now and am allergic to sulfa now. I'm on Clindamycin and I'm scared to death of this. I was wondering if anyone knows where I can get allicin in Canada and colloidal silver. Does this really eradicate it? Are they both taken orally? Thanks so much."
EC: Most local health food stores in Canada will carry allicin (garlic) and colloidal silver.
[YEA] 09/13/2009: Beth from Sacramento, Ca replies: "My husband is much better and we are so pleased with the results. You know how hard it is to get a man to see a dr even if it is life-threatening...I am so happy. Who knew garlic would be the answer."
12/03/2009: Tina from Bowling Green, Ohio replies: "Could you please tell me where you got the less expensive allicin? Thank you. Tina"

[YEA] 03/08/2008: Cathy from Marin County, CA: "Hello everyone, Our family survived a vicious attack of f MRSA ourselves. My two sons were viciously attacked by flesh eating boils. I had a more mild attack. The boils my slesh eating MRSA. I know this will be hard to believe, however we dealt withons had grew to the size of small grapefruits.
My oldest son came home one day with a bad "spider bite" -- it slowly healed. A week later 6 more boils came back and they were literally eating away at his legs within a few hours. We took him to our family doctor of 20 yrs plus, and his nurse practitioner threw Septra, Doxycicline, and Murpirocin ointment at the infection. Our doctor called us and told us not to worry. He said that they have never had the antibiotics fail to kill the infection and that it would not come back.
Well, it did come back within 10 days after using the drugs correctly. The drugs did cause the infection to retreat which was a part of what save his life because it bought us time to research. We also consulted with an Infectious Disease Doctor and he confirmed my thinking, the doctors are experimenting to see which antibiotic might kill MRSA. At that point I lost confidence in doctors and antibiotics and decided to research and pray.
Our lives depended on finding something that would cause the boils to go away. We did find something and it was___ and ___ ____ [garlic]. We used it as suggested and got the results we needed. Since we used ____ ___ ___ ___ ____ [garlic], we have not had any signs or symptoms of MRSA for over 2 yrs.

We did keep in close contact with our doctors through our recovery process. We used ____(research links below) topically and internally. ___ ____ ___ [garlic] needs to be used properly to achieve the desired results.
Because of our recovery and the recovery of many others using ___ ___ [garlic], I want to help others. I am not a doctor or health practitioner and I do not give medical advice. I have been able to help many to get the same desired results that our family had. I am blessed and honored to do so. I have provided research links for all of you below. Feel free to email us if you would like our help with where to purchase

08/12/2009: Jag from Toronto, On replies: "Of course garlic is good, but on these forums of needy people, some elements are trying to make money by selling products at much higher prices and promoting specific brands which they sell. Be careful and don't buy from these inhumans."
EC: Yes, and thank you for pointing out this post! Most of their other posts were removed long ago... We are leaving this one on the site (now fully edited) to show how companies submit posts with key words that repeat over and over in order to bring up favorable results on Google. In this case, certain words describing a certain garlic supplement were used repeatedly.
Garlic, Coconut Oil
[YEA] 08/29/2011: Prosperity from Tampa, Fl: "Hello, Tracy from Ft Pierce, Florida
I was having the same problem. I went to the hospital last week for something that I thought was an insect bite. My result came back MRSA. Strong garlic pill crushed in coconut oil is working for me. I'm on a pillician also. I prayed to God for His help and He has answered. Thank you Lord"
