Probiotics for MRSA

Fri, 01 Jul 16 02:09:58 -0500

5 out of 5 stars

In 2013 the mother of my wife became infected with MRSA after bowel surgery. Antibiotics weren't working at all, and she couldn't eat proper without vomiting. I gave her a multi-strain probiotic consisting of more than 10 strains plus FOS (Fructooligosaccharides) and she was healed within 1 to 2 days and could resume eating as normal.

Ingredients of the supplement: **

FOS (Fructooligosaccharides) 50 mg *
ConcenTrace® Trace Mineral Complex
(from the Great Salt Lake, 72 naturally occurring minerals, plus other minerals found in seawater) 12.5 mg *
Bifidobacterium longum 430 million viable organisms† *
Lactobacillus acidophilus 430 million viable organisms† *
Bifidobacterium bifidum 180 million viable organisms† *
Bifidobacterium breve 180 million viable organisms† *
Bifidobacterium lactis 180 million viable organisms† *
Lactobacillus brevis 180 million viable organisms† *
Lactobacillus bulgaricus 180 million viable organisms† *
Lactobacillus casei 180 million viable organisms† *
Lactobacillus helveticus 180 million viable organisms† *
Lactobacillus plantarum 180 million viable organisms† *
Lactobacillus rhamnosus 180 million viable organisms† *
Lactobacillus salivarius 180 million viable organisms† *
Lactococcus lactis 180 million viable organisms† *
Streptococcus thermophilus 180 million viable organisms† *
Bifidobacterium infantis 90 million viable organisms† *

** Not listing the manufacturer product name of course. The original product isn't sold in the exact same formulation anymore, and is now a 16 strain product. The original had 15 strains (they have since added Lactobacillus reuteri). Pretty sure I have the correct ingredients here but this was a few years ago... If I am mistaken then the other possibility is that it was a multi-strain SBO Probiotic (containing soil based organisms).

Hope this helps someone!

Hi Mmsg :)

That's what I've been doing--copying/pasting to Word, but I'd love it I could just save it here on EC, since I'm here so often. (More as a reader than a poster.)

I don't know if Craigslist is as popular across the pond as it is here, but their website, which is intentionally rudimentary, has a star next to every post and if you click on the star, it will save it (right there on CL). Then, when you want to reference a previous post, you just click on the yellow star at the top of the page and *voila*--all of your saved posts are there in a list until you choose to delete them.

That feature is so handy--I love it! :)

Sunshine, Would you mind sharing which probiotic you take that helps you? It's been hard to find one with the four things you listed that really help with perioral dermititis. Thank you so much for any help! Thanks, Tina

I grind fresh home grown turmeric and eat about 20 grams a day. I also have malignant melanoma throughout my body. Turmeric is not stopping the spread of this disease. It may have some benefits but removal of my cancer is very questionable at least.

Potassium Gluconate for Heart Palpitations

I had heart palpitations that increased greatly this year, and I found that taking simple Potassium Gluconate 595 mg, of the kind sold in common grocery or health stores, decreased them significantly. So, passing it along.

HI U MS SOAZ,,,,,,,, I do help on the picking and shelling. We dry our stuff with a standard dehydrator. My Tractor driver then uses Mason jars. Our food saver has two special lids that will fit the narrow and wide mouth jars. These go over a standard canning lid. When you done, you have to pry the lid off. It works.

What causes me grief is that you start with a goody amount of veggies and end up with just a handful. Some things like figs, tomatoes and apples we dry and freeze. This year we will add onions, dill and chives to our drying list. Why buy.... when you already raise and it takes only a little effort to preserve. Being in So. Az, you probably can sun dry. That is probably the best way.

There is a guy named Gabe Brown that has my attention. He is from one of the Dakoda's and he uses cover crops to develop his soil. It is mind blowing. I think I'm too far down the shady side of the mountain for his program.

The tractor you saw is 8 years old. We keep it washed and our football player wax's it every year. There is no reason for folks to let a diesel tractor rust down when it can last a life time.

Out of spit. ======ORH======

No, Robert Henry, not on me. I worked for the VA, and employees there were exposed to these scabies mites. As the Medical Librarian, I was asked to search for medical literature on them. That is how I got involved with the topic. I am in touch with several of those employees who apparently had the more severe Norwegian type and said they were having difficulty eradicating them. However, I will pass your sauna suggestion on to them and any others who contact me.

Hello, thank you for sharing your husband's info, I just want to reiterate what I believe you said he takes. I have had severe head tremors for years and when the Inderal stopped working I started some supplements with a little improvement. But want to try yours. Theanine Serene, Magtein and Aceytl-L-Carnitine.

Please let me know if this is correct. I want to order them and start right away. Thanks for sharing. Cindy

The man who turned blue was taking an obsessive amount of colloidal silver. Very obsessive amount. People can safely use colloidal silver without harming themselves. I just wanted to clarify this matter.

Does corn silk tea is commercial or fresh boil corn silk? Does it bother your stomach?

How much corn silk do you use? How long do you take this treatment?

Thank you.

Garlic for Sore Throat

I've had a stuffy and an irritating sore throat for the last 3 days. I tried salt gargle but it didn't do me any good so I resulted to the internet to search for something that would help. I've not had enough sleep for the last three days too and it was beginning to get to me. I came across this article and read the reviews and decided to try it today. I took three cloves of garlic cut them into small pieces and let them boil in water for three minutes. I mixed the garlic with peppermint leaves and chamomile tea and took it slowly by slowly not gulping it. The mixture is a wonder because before I was even done with the first cup, the sore throat was gone just left with a stuffy nose, but as they say, 'Rome wasn't build in one day'. I'll keep drinking the mixture and expect for the best results. Try it guys, it does work.

  Re: Colon Cleansing and Kombucha

I recently had a 2 week colon cleanse diet (by a nutritionist) and at the end of the diet I had to do some purging with Epsom salts and the next day 2 home made enemas (first coffee then garlic), I was wondering if I can drink Kombucha right after? I understand Kombucha helps repopulate the intestines with good bacteria but now that my colon is supposedly very clean was wondering if it may not be the best time to drink Kombucha.

Dear Robert Henry - just love reading your very informative and always interesting posts. This one has my mouth watering for those pickles! I guess I qualify for tractor driver status also, as I too have a Kubota (although not nearly as shiny! ). It is without a doubt my favorite vehicle. We figured out a long time ago that it would be impossible to live as we do without one. I would love to know what you use for drying your produce - it is, if course, the way to go if one is aware of current affairs. Are you using plastic bags or other containers for your vacuuming process? Thank you, and all the best to you and the original "Tractor Driver"? He

  Re: Immunity Boost for Autoimmune Diseases

Further to Mike's comment: two months ago I consulted a naturopath (the 3rd) after 2 GP's and 2 dermatologists for the GA. This naturapath told me that GA is autoimmune and that 80% of all autoimmune disease is due to leaky gut. I am also hypothyroid. So, after bowel cleanse and eliminating all gluten, & rice, corn, dairy, sugar, I am taking a probiotic as well as a powdered drink to heal the digestive tract. It may be a slow process, but I haven't been well for 50 years.

Hi James how are you doing? I have had barretts for 3 years. Been on omeprazol 20 mg, just up to 40 mgs, never really had heart burn, sure would like to get off the omeprazol.your remedy. sounds like a decent cure. I do not smoke, do like my coor lite beer, very very active for a 60yrs old ski biking weight lifting m.arts walking hiking all the right foods. I guess beer has been my downfall, only 20 a week now and dropping. Dad died of e.cancer in 1982. Have a great day. Paul
