Hi, I am a 35 yr old female. I just was told that I have this bacteria infection on my scalp. It is called acinetobacter luoffi. I have had a staph infection on my scalp before and had to take antiobiotics for it. I have been trying a home remedy of listerine and neosporin then lavender and coconut oil (not completely working but is helping me to be able to handle the itch and burn) before I went to the doctor. I went to the doctor, thus the diagnosis of this acinetobacter luoffi.

My question is what would be the best home treatment for it as I do not want to take antibiotics. I was reading about the hydrogen peroxide and apple cider vinegar mixed with water. Is there anything else and will this bleach my hair?

Dear Sonyae,

I am so sorry your brother has developed this infection.

Yes, I am sure taking pro-biotics is good since he is taking anti-biotics.

Is the infection localized? Is he still in the hospital? It may be difficult to get them to allow you to try anything to treat it, if so.

For a localized infection, we have found charcoal poultices to work very well. But, again, if he is in the hospital, I am not sure they would let you do it. If you are able, change the poultice every 2-4 hours. There are instructions on making them on the activated charcoal page.

Garlic and turmeric are excellent anti-biotics. These you can give him, assuming they allow outside food. They might think his room smells terrible....but it will be worth it.

If possible get organic garlic. Use a garlic press to mince 1 medium to large clove (one piece of the whole bulb) and let it sit for 15 minutes. Then put it in a spoon with honey, or on some bread with honey or butter and give it to him. You would want to do this every 2-4 hours.

You can also give him 1/2 teaspoon of turmeric in water or milk 4 times a day. Turmeric can be constipating and should be taken with plenty of water. If he is not moving his bowels at least once a day, this will hinder his healing.

If there is any way you can get fresh organic carrot juice to him, a quart a day would not be too much for him to have daily.

Please keep us posted. I am praying that he is healed soon.

Hi A,

If it were me, I'd try a few things both topically, and internally.

* colloidal silver misted skin several times per day.
* papaya powder mixed with a small amount of water to make a paste. Leave on til dry and rinse off. This unclogs pores. Use a few times per week.
* moisturize with a small amount of organic expeller / cold pressed sesame seed oil. Can add 1 drop of essential oil, such as lavender, tea tree, frankincense.
* at night apply a thin layer of castor oil.
*** I would definitely get an LED light face mask that has the option for blue and ultra violet lights. Those spectrums are very powerful antimicrobials. I've seen them sold on Amazon, and have seen very positive feedback in treating acne.

* do some form of intestinal cleanse. My favorite it from Chakra Foods.
* take a spoonful calcium bentonite clay mixed with a teaspoon or two of psyllium husk and 16oz water first thing in the morning on an empty stomach.
* a few teaspoons of turmeric daily.
* you can also try oregano oil and / olive leaf extract for a period of time to cleanse you internally.
* Probiotics- take a high potency probiotic after you've finished an intestinal cleanse. The health of the gut is linked to the skin.

Lastly, manuka honey is anti-bacterial. Perhaps you could get a small jar and experiment with applying it as a mask. Leave on for 20-30 minutes.

Good luck and let us know how it goes!

Hi, I have been diagnosed with Serratia M. I took an antibiotic for 5 days (Levo) but still seem to have a cough that makes me heave as if something is in me the body does not like and wants out. I also have an awful lot of mucus producing at night. When awaking, I get rid of all this and am fine for the majority of the day.

My concern is I want it out of me and the antibiotic did not seem to do this or kill all of it. I am scared silly that my sons may get this. I am the epitomy of clean, but have to admit it is hard cleaning a 3025 square foot home regularly.

I am ready to vacate the home and leave it to the mortgage company, get out and go somewhere I feel is not an issue. When first buying the home, after one week I noticed the red color in the commode. I asked then and was advised this is not an issue, keep commodes clean with bleach added regularly and no problem. No one said this could be airborne and cause major issues. I am inclined to sue to get this cleared or the property returned.

There is a doctor in England that has had excellent results fighting MRSA with Allican. Allican is a compound created by the living garlic plant when you crush it. The plant creates this compound to heal itself. Turns out that this compound is very powerful against infection. Getting or growing garlic would be an excellent idea for people having infection problems.

Also, Check into colloidial silver spray. It is a very effective colloidial silver with the ability to kill MRSA.

Stay away from sugar while fighting infections.

Sonyae: A tribe of native Americans did not catch European diseases because they took a five mushroom blend. Carnivores who ate anthrax infected carcasses survived because they ate raw herbivores who ate raw wild harvested greens. 200 beneficial microbes, 2 1/2 lbs., 10 times more than cells, 70% of the immune system, dwelling in the gut, communicate and cooperate with each other. Feeding them cooked regular food weakens them. Antibiotics poison them. 1 yeast is not going to make him well, it's going to make wealthy people wealthier. Make home brewed water kefir, green smoothies from organic baby greens, take a 17 mushroom extract blend from Washington, watch raw food videos, and take the super foods.

S. marcesens is closely related to e coli, it's what tthey use instead when they do research. On surfaces, bleach, iodine, lysol can all get rid of it and it doesn't take much. Internally, I'd try iodine, peroxide, or silver.

Hi, my name is Sonya and my brother has developed Serratia Marcescens from having surgery on his tricep muscle and has been in the hospital several days with iv antibiotics without any change...I am of course very worried. He is 43 yrs old and is a smoker but pretty good health overall. Is there anything that can be done besides bombarding his body with antibiotics? I know he should be taking probiotics and I believe Florastor is good? Please do you have any info that could help us? Thank u

Peroxide is an antiseptic, not a dye. Good luck with your treatments for Acinetobacter Scalp Infection.

Try large doses of vitamin A for about 3 days.
