Interesting MRSA fighting discovery!! It deals with solvent-based MRSA treatment.

I was suffering frequent outbreaks. From my cheek to my armpit to elbow, knee, finger, groin, butt, man, you name it.. I tried a bunch of remedies..

Turmeric, BS, Manuka honey? No go.

I'm a bad case!

I found out about how MRSA colonizes in the nose. Logic told me to clean my nose out. I had some rubbing alcohol. I had q-tips. I swabbed my nostrils with 91% rubbing alcohol bought from dollar tree. Then sniffed it in deeply and forcefully, & let the fumes get back in there. Oh it burns.

I've been doing this for a year. I haven't had a serious outbreak since. I used to have to go to the doctor a lot. Not any more.

I still get the pimples sometimes that could go big boil, but it's usually when I havent swabbed nostril in a while.

If I get caught unaware and end up with a lump, I scrub it vigorously with the alcohol on a paper towel, with a bit of hibiclens mixed on the paper towel with it. That does quite well at fighting it, but.......

Check it out.

One day I was at work and I had a painful MRSA boil starting on my knee. (they rubs the pants and its irritating as shmit) so i took a look-see around the shop....

Grabbed the old square can of acetone...


Used the vigorous scrub method...

MRSA bump gone within one hour!!!

Acetone destoys outbreaks.(for me)

As far as decolonizing completely? Idk.. Phages show promise. Not crazy enough to try acetone up my nose. I hate garlic (pills maybe)

Staphefekt maybe (look it up) or clys

Now my 2 & 4 yr olds have MRSA. What the #$&! I haven't swabbed their noses, and they get bad outbreaks and I can never catch them early, have not tried acetone on them either (don't go calling CPS) we're doing big pharma on the kids (mupirocin, antibiotics), but I'm doing better with acetone.

The best OTC product I know of for treating Mrsa Topically is TECNU First aid Gel. It works better than anything else and I have tried hundreds of products -- practically everything you can think of or have ever heard of. Tecnu First aid gel has benzethonium 0.20% (maximum strength allowed by the FDA) *Kills MRSA topically in 15 seconds* Tecnu also has Tea Tree oil and Lidocaine 2.5%to numb help as an anesthetic. It is no cure for certain, but it is helpful and will also help with the ungodly pain associated with the boils etc. You are on the right track by keeping your nose clean ;)

Best of luck to you.

CVS antimicrobial silver gel (supposedly silvasorb brand sold as a generic). Diagnosed by lab as MRSA. went through Bactrim, and Levaquin treatment. A boil came back 3 weeks later on the same spot on my arm . I take turmeric and garlic. I have tried everything. I applied the silver gel to the oozing boil and got relief within hours. It is almost A WEEK LATER completely healed. PLEASE TRY THIS!! NOTHING ELSE WORKED AS GOOD AS THIS. IT IS ONLY 7 DOLLARS AT CVS. THANK GOD FOR THIS GEL. IT KILLS THE MRSA I AM LIVING PROOF THIS WORKS. I have also started taking oral colloidal silver.

My 18m.o. has had 4 severe MRSA cysts (diagnosed and tested by our family phys.) that have occurred primarily in the thicker tissue/fat in the legs and buttocks. After many rounds of antibiotics, we found that a silver gel (10ppm colloidal silver mixed with aloe vera gel) applied at the first sign of recurrence inhibited the growth and helped the cycst form a head and drain. Just another example of the antibacterial/antiviral properties of silver. Unfortunately cysts deep in the tissue are harder to pull to the surface. We found a new one tonight and my research led me to this site. I am going to try the baking soda along with turmeric and acidophilus.

Have had recurring mrsa boils on my trunk area for the last 7years (2-3 episodes per year with 2-12 boils at once). Used minocyclene the first year with some results.Through out the years I have tried almost all the home remedies with very little relief. The tumric gave short term relief.Now I think I have it pretty well under control. My success was mostly due to the info I got from this site. Here's whats working for me: Get lots of sleep and take a good sleep remedy if you have to but you must get that full night of sleep every night. The Hibiclens wash 1 to 2 times a day along' with the tee tree oil and ky lubricant mix for your nose 1-2 times per day. Some echinacia,neem and lots of good veggies, less dairy and the alkaline fixes mentioned here. And you will beat the ^%$# out the mrsa in your body.

... As far as MRSA goes, I wouldn't be surprised if the boils were MRSA. I have worked in hospitals for a few years now, and the scary truth is EVERY hospital of any size has a patient with MRSA at least once a month. They expect it, and really don't do much to keep others from walking into these patients rooms without gowning-up, masks, gloves, etc. The only way I know that a patient has MRSA is if I happen to see it in their chart, or if they have parked a gown cart outside the patient's room. Bottom line: Don't go to a hospital if you don't want to be exposed to MRSA. If you have a friend or relative that works in a hospital or other health care setting, know that they are more than likely carriers of MRSA.

Please be careful at your Drs' Appointments. My child had a small scratch, went to a normal doctor's appt where he put the stethascope over the scratch. A couple of days later I noticed what looked like a pimple. I tried to squeeze it. It got bigger like a bug bite, but didn't go away. It tested positive for MRSA, the community acquired version. I had seen before that stethascopes are crawling with germs. How I wished I would have asked the doctor to use an alcohol wipe on it before examining her. Septra and Bactraban finally cleared it up. But now I have to worry about every condition being an outcome from MRSA. Once you have it, you are considered MRSA susceptible. Good luck out there, may you never get this menace!

This is what you have been saying in this forum. Hospitals try to keep the lid of secrecy on MRSA cases. Presumably, so that future patients will not be aware of the problem and will unknowingly subject themselves to surgery at this hospital. I learned that there is at least one case of MRSA at this large local hospital, but there is no mention of it in the news. The hospitals obviously fear financial losses more than the deaths of their patients. I find this disgusting, what about you? I should mention that the hospital in question is NOT located in Hollywood, Florida.

I got several staph infections, but was never tested for MRSA. January of 2004, I got one on my forehead and one on the hairline near my neck. I chose to lance them at home, which was the biggest mistake I could have made. The infection on my neck got into my bloodstream, traveled into my spinal cord and festered for nearly three months. When my back pain began, doctors could find no cause for it, so they admitted me to the local hospital after three trips to the ER in agonizing pain, and treated me for five days for Kidney infection and Kidney stones. Turned out it was MRSA in my lungs, blood, spinal cord, pneumonia and bronchitis. By the time they realized this my blood pressure was dangerously low, as well as my blood oxygen level. I had about six hours to live at this point. Thankfully a rather risky back surgery saved my life, as well as 2 months of severe antibiotic treatments, where I was given Vancomyacin through a groshong catheter directly into my aorta. Lesson here, if you get more than one staph infection, get tested for MRSA. I didn't, and the result is life long pain. My son was only six months old when this happened. He is two now and I can still barely carry him for long.

MRSA on right hand and forearm, spread to chest, and face. contracted mid march, misdiagnosed. Small stinging pimple on right wrist turned into huge infected ulcer with reddish purple ridges , painful swelling. Over next few months seven new ones appeared on hand and upper forearm. In the last two days two small ulcers on chest and a small red pimple on left side of face. May 24, Emergency room Dr. Prescribed new meds, bactroban and Doxycycline. I'm slathered in bactroban, day one of new meds when I notice one of the larger ulcers on my forearm is spreading. horrers upon horrers three new red inflamed pimples. Deep breath, stay calm, don't panic, do not scream. bactroban is not working but maybe the Doxycycline will.

I use Tea tree oil conditioner once a week on my hair for the controll of dandruff, works wonderfully and so soothing when I rub over my face. I had tried tea tree oil on my arm but I broke out in hives and my arm became more inflamed. I think if I wasn't so worried the light bulb would have gone off sooner. The conditioner is obviously diluted. I almost broke my neck trying to get to the bathroom. I mixed up five drops of tea tree oil in one tespoon water and added it to 1 tablespoon Holista tea tree conditioner. I slathered this all over my arm and in ten minutes the swelling and redness almost gone. I put some on my chest and face same reaction. Maybe this is the miracle I have been looking for, cross my fingers and a big prayer. Thank you for the info on diluting tea tree oil.

Ted's Remedies

MRSA outbreaks in Thailand? Possibly it comes from the pollutants and birds (excellent carriers for many diseases, bugs, etc) here in my home. However, boils outbreak I think is difficult but they tend to occur during the "vegetarian festivities" here in Thailand.

The reason why is really simple, most white flour which is used in cooking during the festivities is used in the food, so people consume more.

They are very acid forming food, next to soda pop that is banned in schools in U.S. at least, but not here. Some milk actually added fluoride, so that doesn't help either. These acid forming food, especially flour, do get easily contaminated quite easily with fungus, etc. The body's immune system simply stops for about 2 hours in presence of sugar, the fact that some cola adds phosphoric acid simply make things worse.

The outbreak, therefore is more tied to the diets which lowers your immune system, such as sugar, and white flour found in bread being the worse offender of these MRSA and an outbreak as well as weight gain often occur or coincide during and after the vegetarian festivities.

I am not a pro meat or a pro vegetarian either. What I am saying is white flour is one of the worse offenders of acid forming food (next to soda pop) and the rise in use of sugar often rises to coincide with the vegetarian festivities. I once got a terrible boils in the buttocks similar to Kathryn, but the source of it i knew to be ice cream, but chocolate or cocoa strangely enough causes pimples but not boils.

So the way to stop boils at least for me was taking plenty of zinc, chromium, vanadium and baking soda to alkalize my body. Drain whatever pus that occurs in the boils to dry them.

Being especially careful to avoid both sugar AND acid forming food is the best way to remove these antibiotic resistant out of the body. You don't have to buy an elaborate lists of kinds of acid forming list, just remember to simply stay away from sugar and flour. They are easier to remember, getting too particular can confuse you. Certain supplements, you need to be wary if you take too much as they too are acid forming, whose supplements name have the words "hydrochloride", such as pyridoxine hydrochloride, a vitamin B6. A better substitute is pyridoxal 5 phosphate.

Antibiotics no longer works with me, actually it had not work for at least 10 years now, regardless of the kinds of antibiotics I use. And this is why I have remedies to get around this issue for at least 10 years now. Ted

Niacin(B3) converts triglycerides and LDL to HDL... basically starving the staph. Higher Sodium Ascorbate content won't hurt either. Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate (NADP) might help as well. Ted's got the right idea.

New Strategy Cracks Staph Bacterium's "Golden Armor," Making It Vulnerable To Treatment -- 15 Feb 2008
"Researchers have exploited a structural vulnerability in the "superbug" Staphylococcus aureus that in laboratory experiments and a mouse study opened the bacterium to treatment with an anti-cholesterol medication. This follows the 2005 discovery that a pigment provides a "golden armor" that enables staph to evade the immune system.

An article published Feb.14 in the online version of Science (Science Express) describes the study, which was conducted by researchers at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, the National Taiwan University in Taipei, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and the University of California, San Diego.

After treatment with the drug - which had progressed through preclinical testing in rats and two early clinical trials in humans as a cholesterol-fighting medication - staph bacteria were about 15 times more susceptible to killing by hydrogen peroxide and were four-fold less able to survive in human blood, according to George Y. Liu, M.D., Ph.D., one of the article's co-first authors.""

MRSA control for a normally healthy person requires decolonization of skin and nostrils. MRSA typically hides out in the membrane inside the nostrils so you must treat all areas of the skin and both nostrils at the same time:

The decolonization procedure often recommended includes both of the following measures:

Apply 2% mupirocin ointment generously throughout the inside of both nostrils with a cotton swab ( but don't overdo and dig too deep inside the nostril) twice daily for 10 days and
Bathe with liquid chlorhexidene soap, washing all skin surfaces daily for five days. Daily bathing or showering using an antibacterial agent such as chlorhexidine gluconate is recommended during mupirocin treatment to improve chances of eradication. Alternative treatment with tea tree oil body lotion and shampoo have been shown effective in achieving decolonization, and have the benefit of being less harsh on the skin. Use a pharmaceutical grade Tea Tree Oil Skin Wash.

In addition to the previously described strategy to decolonize the MRSA bacteria on skin and in nostrils, you should also at the same time take internally dietary supplements of probiotics containing a variety of strains of acidophilus like lactobacilus acidophilus and lactobacillus rhamosus. Make sure the brand you buy has a guarantee of true potency. This product will be in the refridgerated part of a health food store and you should keep it refridgerated at home. Also youghert with live probiotic cultures and buttermilk also have lactobacilus acidophilus. Eat plenty of these. Feed youghert, kefir, buttermilk to your kids to strengthen their immune system. Eliminate sugar, gluten, alcohol, beer, wine, as much as possible. Drink lots of water cause as the MRSA bacteria dies, you need water to flush out the dead bacteria. May God help us all to achieve good health and to praise Him.

For Ref: Chlorhexidine glucanate ("Hibicleanse") is sold at Walmart; it is sometimes kept behind the counter, so you ask for it of you can't find it... Prices are better when you buy the larger bottles (sometimes you have to order the larger bottles; it takes @ 3 days).

Prices (Feb 2012)

small, 4 oz bottle: $5.97

meduim, 8 oz bottle $8.37

large, 16 oz bottle $13.72

extra large: the pharmacists is checking for a better/wholesale price/source.

The pharmacists cautions against it for full-body use; she says be sure to use as little as possible! Read the Warning Lable carefully!!!

Essential Oils for MRSA--Just want to share my experience with the skin infection. I got it a month ago after travelling. First, my skin was itchy, thaen I got boils that were spreding to my but. I did not know what it was and in such cases I apply grinded garlic to the area. This time garlic was helping with iching, but the infection was not healing.

Eucalyptus oil
>I started using Eucalyptus oil twice a day and saw the difference in about 2 days. Most of the boils disapeared. I kept applying the oil until I could not see the pimples (about 3 more days). Then I made the following mixture and applied it ti the area once or twice a day just to make sure the problem does not come back: 1/2 tsp of basic oil (olive or avocado for example) 5 drops of high quality Tea Tree oil 1 to 2 drops of Eucalyptus oil.

It is important to purchase high quality oils. I got mine from Switerland as I was staying abroad at that time. Swiss oils are the best oils in my experiance. In the USA there is a distributor of Swiss oils - essential oil collection.

PS when using Eucalyptus oil alone, I was not delluting it, but I know it should be dilluted as they say it can burn the skin. I used one drop on a cotton pad and then tuched up the area with it. But it would be better to dillute it a little.

MRSA Tools that will KILL this Monster which Refuses to die! Twice a Day.. Once in the morning and once before bed take 1 Tablespoon ACV with the mother in some tea of choice.. Add to that 1 half squeezed fresh lemon and as much cayenne pepper as one can stand.. And here is the MOST IMPORTANT add to that 1 Tablespoon MANUKA HONEY from NZ.. It must be UMF 18 or higher... 18 is usually powerful enough.. If there are also wounds or boils.. Clean them with cotton ball soaked in AVC then apply the 18 Manuka Honey on the wound or boil.. And a bandage...

I have also had Great Success applying a sulfur "Refining" mask from a well known acne treatment company in place of the manuka honey on the boil or wound.. Or crushed garlic can be used.. If your doctor will prescribe for you the Mupirocin Ointment USP 2% this is also speeds the process.. Use it on a q tip and put it inside the nose.. Be careful not to inhale it into your lungs as this can cause complications... I Promise this will Kill the MRSA but if not careful you can get it again.. Be careful by Not eating sugar or white flour.. MRSA feeds off sugar and white flour.. It loves these products and gains strength from them.. We are exposed to MRSA all the time and especially in hospitals..

Its so easy to become infected with MRSA the main things to focus on are... Manuka Honey 18 or Higher and Sulphur to kill the beast.. And AVC with the mother for the PH issues... So the body is able to fight it... Take the tea mixture twice a day until well.. If the nose begins to bleed from being dried out... Discontinue the manuka honey for a few days.. But continue drinking everything else until the moisture returns then add the manuka honey back in... Drink plenty of fluids through out the treatment.. THIS WORKS!!

For a MRSA Boil, Povidone Iodine 10%. Does not in the least burn your skin. It is the #1 way to kill MRSA topically. Of course it will only kill the bacteria topically, but for the surface wound and area nearby it is the best solution. I mix 10% Povidone Iodine w/a couple drops of neem oil and a couple of drops of 91% straight alcohol together for a stronger disinfectant with better skin penetration. It helps control the growth, and will kill the MRSA bacteria topically in less than 15 seconds. I have tested this in a lab and used the formula on myself for years.

I have tried almost everything to cure my MRSA.

Silver Biotics, Oil of oregano, ACV, diet changes, coconut oil, oil pulling, turmeric, GSE, black strap molasses, baking soda, campho, holy basil, zinc supplements, fasting, liver cleanses, manuka honey, hibeclens, kefir (acidophilus), tea tree oil, neem oil, baby powder, loose clothing, no alcohol.

The two that I have found to help the MOST (keeping the size and swelling down) have been manuka honey and turmeric. But NOTHING has stopped/cured my MRSA. It is so frustrating and makes me quite sad to have to keep going through this. My boils are heavily concentrated on my bottom. I can get up to 20 at a time just on my bottom. Sometimes they go down the backs of my thighs, but they are very limited to where they pop up.

I feel discouraged and so horrified at all the scars on my bottom. What am I doing wrong here? I eat 80% raw organic vegetables (but 100% organic all the time) I avoid alcohol and sugars. I eat meat maybe once a month. I'm absolutely at a loss and would love some help.

There is hope!!! I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis in late jan of this year. I then got a bad case of multiple painful MRSA boils in perineal and genital area from the colonoscopy. It was not promptly diagnosed by my doctor, so the boils grew for 10 days with no treatment. 3 had to be opened surgically and drained. one left a large deep wound on my buttock...I couldnt sit down for 2 weeks and had to have a visiting nurse come to pack the wound. I was hospitalized on IV vancomyacin 4 days after the MRSA diagnosis and lancing, then Zyvox for 10 days when i went home. the MRSA came back a month later in early March. 10 more days of Zyvox, it went away, then recently - a later after i stopped the antibiotic -- two more small boils showed up in genital area....MRSA again. needless to say, the antibiotics are not very effective long term, and have wreaked havoc on the colitis, killing off healthy intestinal flora and bringing back the colitis symptoms even tho I was mega dosing on high quality probiotics Critical Care Ultimate Flora 50 billion capsules by NewLife(200 billion organisms a day total which helped but the antibiotics still created diahrea). I do a lot of natural healing things, take a lot of supplements, but MRSA is really tough!! I am refusing to do more antibiotics this time with these new boils, and am just starting raw organic unfilterd apple cider and turmeric powder 3X a day to deal with this latest bout based on these recommendations here. A book that has helped me A LOT (and that also promotes apple cider vinegar, probiotics and kefir) is The Body Ecology Diet by donna Gates. A recurrent infection of any kind is often due to an overacidic body, allowing yeast to flourish as well as harmful bacteria which taxes the immune system weakening it so it cant fight the MRSA. I am alkalizing my body using THE Body Ecology Diet. IF YOU HAVE RECURRENT MRSA, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND YOU READ THIS BOOK AND IMPLEMENT SOME OF THE SUGGESTIONS!!! I have only been doing it for less than 2 weeks and it has already resolved the colitis symptoms (in spite of the multiple antibiotic rounds and in spite of my GI doctor saying it would take 6 weeks IF I were taking the anti-inflammatory drugs which im not). I had a massive yeast die off and I am feeling so much better. I believe with this book plus the turmeric I will finally beat the MRSA for good! I also suggest for those with really recurrent MRSA to consult a good herbalist as there are several herbs that are very potent antifungal/antibacterial and they can be applied topically and made into a tea. It is the western medical systems over use of antibiotics that created this monster, and while antibiotics might be a good short term tool, in my opinion you need to get at the underlying condition in your body that is allowing to come back again and again.

Are their other members in your immediate household? Often times reoccurent cases can be traced to other household members, such as children and spouses that can harbor the bacteria and me immune to it and end up unwitingly being dangerous carriers. Infectious Disease expert consult would likely be a good idea for every member of your household. Everyone you frequently come into close contact with reguarly should be looked at closely as being a potential carrier. Also, if you have a cat and have long term MRSA put your cat outside. Pets can be silent carriers, especially cats. Try cleaning your nose out with iso-blu twice a week and taking a bath with 1/4 cup (measured exactly) of bleach added into your bath water. This will help keep the bacteria count down on your skin which will lead to less infections. Also look into how you launder your clothes more carefully. The most important thing to pay attention too is frequent use of hand sanitizer, and changing your bed sheets every 2 days. Every 48 hrs!! This is a must. People with MRSA spend more time in bed, and this is the place most likely to be the cause of re-occuring infections. Bacteria from the bed sheets. 1 single MRSA bacteria cell can multiply into the millions in just 8 hours, this is how fast the bacteria replicate. Change your bed sheets every 48 hours and change your clothes daily, and keep your skin covered as much as possible with a light amount of clothing. Wear long sleeves and pants and keep all of your skin covered, protected and properly moisturized. These tips will help tremendously to cut down on your amount of preventable frequent re-occuring infections.

I feel I contracted MRSA from a hot tub. I was going through some stress at the time, and I was not eating healthy at the time. I tried many, many things, and this is what I have discovered for myself. RAW HONEY mixed with TURMERIC makes the best paste to put on any MRSA wound. Cover it with a bandage. Raw honey is a miracle! It contains so many enzymes that it can heal any rash or sore when nothing else works. I learned this from personal experience. Take all white flour and sugar out of your diet while you are trying to heal, including alcohol drinks. Try to keep your PH balance by alkalizing with 1 T. Raw apple cider vinegar and 1/4 t. Baking soda (good quality from health food section) mixed with nice cold water. Once in morning and night. Taste like plain seltzer water. Be patient! Everyday keep putting on a mixture of raw honey mixed with turmeric on wound, and it will start healing. Start building up your immune system and eat healthy, no white flour, no sugar, stay away from real sweet fruit, such as bananas and grapes while you are trying to heal. This is from my own personal experience.

It is now 2020, and I am healthy and well. I was able to clear up MRSA, using raw honey & turmeric, along with diet changes. Removing sugar & white flour which feeds MRSA.

I find that if I go through any stress, such as moving or a new job, it starts to surface. So I immediately get strict and stick to a paleo diet.

I start alkalizing, using 1T. Lime or lemon juice in water, with 1/2 tsp. Baking soda, twice a day. It taste like a sparkling water.

There have been times, that the MRSA is in my nose. I discovered a silver cream, that is used on wounds, that I put on a q-tip And apply it in my nostril. It clears up in just a few days. I have used this same silver cream on MRSA sores, and it also works really well, as well as the RAW HONEY & TURMERIC paste.

I can say with confidence, that I cured myself, and I am enjoying life. MRSA is everywhere on shopping carts, on many surfaces, it is important to get your immune system strong again.

On open sores, it is important to cover with a bandage and seal around it, using silver cream or raw honey & turmeric paste.

Hello Everyone! I have suffered twice from MRSA, both times contracted from a Doctor's clinic/hospital while being examined for something else. My husband also got it, from tending to my MRSA as directed by my Doctor. These horribly painful boils began as small pimples that grew quickly to angry purple lemon sized lumps. The 1st time I was treated with very expensive antibiotics ($2K) for MRSA, but antibiotics did not stop it the second time. In less than 2 months from the 1st attack, I ended up in surgery. Had to use a wound vac for 30 days afterward. The MRSA infection was within 1/2" of my aorta when surgical intervention was deemed necessary to save my life. Yes, I know much about MRSA. Or at least I thought I did. Always something new to learn, tho. Yesterday I itched at what I thought was a bug bite on my chest. Looked down to see that awful sight: a pimple. Carefully felt to see how big. A small amount of pus leaked out of the pea sized lump. Now, I had found Earth Clinic after the second MRSA attack. Had read about ground Turmeric & MRSA here. Last night I mixed some fresh Turmeric with just enough 100% Aloe Vera gel to make a paste about the thickness of honey. I painted the erupting boil, already painful & the size of a grape, with this mixture. The area was then covered with a large nonstick bandage & taped closed. I expected either a huge pussy drainage or a trip to the hospital in the morning, but managed to drift off to sleep. During the night sometime, I woke because of a strange tingling sensation. Resisted Temptation to itch or check under the bandage, and went back to sleep. This morning I am absolutely astounded! No drainage. No pus. No pimple. No boil. No MRSA. No itching. No pain. The only indication that there ever was any problem is a very tiny small hole where the pus leaked out yesterday. The Turmeric over the hole was of a different texture. Much drier, kind of hardened, and a little tough to wash off. This awesome home remedy is soooooo difficult for me to believe! It cost me less than 50 cents and about 10 minutes to try this simple cure. I must make sure MRSA has really taken a hike! So, today I will begin to drink Turmeric Tea as suggested.

Tonight I will repeat Turmeric Aloe gel = paste, and bandage. I am in tears of confused joy right now. Really. Earth Clinic, my husband & I are forever grateful to all of you! From our hearts to yours: Yay!

I used 2 Tablespoons of Turmeric and 5 Tablespoons extra virgin coconut oil and 5 Tablespoons raw honey, a few years ago. I would take it internally and put it directly on the site of infection about 3 or 4 times a day as needed for pain and swelling and then soak in hot baths or hot wash rags for pain and swelling as well.

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.

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.
