Natural Cures for MRSA

Oregano Oil + Turpentine

I've had MRSA on my leg twice, and yes, it's painful. The first time I took antibiotics without any change, then a salve the Dr gave me - sorry, I don't remember what it was, but it worked eventually.

About 5 years ago I got it again. I hit it with every home remedy I could think of such as crushed garlic and turmeric mixed with coconut oil under a small cloth bandage from old t-shirt. Left the turmeric on at night.

The two that finally helped the most was turpentine and oregano oil squeezed from a capsule, one at a time, right on it and covered with a small cloth bandage held on with tape. I alternated each several times the first day and by the next day I could see it shrinking. Kept it up for 4 - 5 more days till it had disappeared completely.

Also took the oregano in capsule form, 1500 mg. Three caps 3 times a day.

These days I keep a good quality turpentine and oregano oil caps on hand at all times along with Olive Leaf Extract/OLE. Turpines in the tree sap keep it protected from most infections and has been used since old Egyptian times.You can find a study done in France on the subject of turpines.

Worked for me, hope you get the help you need from all these suggestions.

Natto powder is made by fermenting boiled soybeans with Bacillus subtilis. It's proven to kill MRSA. the antibiotic bacitracin is synthesized from the chemical it produces. It's working great for me. I'm taking a half teaspoon per dose. Look it up. They've used it on mice.

Turmeric, Coconut Oil, Honey

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.

Magnesium Oil

Possible MRSA infection experience. I had a weird bump on my back that I couldn't see. It had originally been a blackhead, which I could feel, but then it changed into a bump that just didn't ever go away, and the skin around it was odd. One day I was pressing on it a lot to try to force it to clean out, and managed to aggravate it so that it swelled up to more than 8" across after maybe 3 days. It was very uncomfortable with any pressure on it, but not "hot". I enlisted my son to try to help me put stuff on it and monitor what it was doing.

I'm describing this as a possible MRSA infection because he showed me some MRSA photos which he found later that he said looked pretty much exactly like what was on my back. I used several things, but the one thing that really started to turn it around was topical magnesium. The first time I used it one night, the next morning the surface felt different, as though the problem was becoming more superficial. Over time, my son and I applied a lot of magnesium and iodine. We tried a few other things in the mix but the most prevalent items were those two. We made a dressing and changed it 2x day.

After a few days, it suddenly drained out a whole bunch of a clear "gel" which had virtually no odor. It had started to drain a bit of this per day during the days before so the whole area gradually diminished, but once this large drain happened, the whole area reduced and healed up rapidly. I was surprised that it was the topical magnesium that was the most effective thing.

So, for what it's worth, I'm passing this on.

I am colonized with MRSA and I have been struggling with recurring skin lesions for 10+ years. I have recently found that Dead Sea magnesium oil has had a profound effect. My back has been covered with staph pimples for a few years (I am 40 years old). I have never had back acne previously and nothing I tried worked. I just happened to use the magnesium oil for a sore muscle and found that, the next day, the pimples were reduced. I have continued to use it almost daily for the past two weeks and I only have a few random spots left.

If you try it, be aware that it may itch the first few times you use it. Also, if you have any open areas it will burn. I hope this helps!

Blue Light Therapy

Blue Light Frequency 405-475nm

Someone in health sciences told me it can take up to 36 months for MRSA to exit the system. I had an initial infection last August, and treated successfully for that, but at length and with a good deal of discomfort, using iodine, hydrogen peroxide, honey and turmeric.

While I was suffering, I read about the effectiveness of blue light in the visible frequency (non-ultraviolet) of 405-475nm on MRSA in vitro. I ordered a hand held light from a manufacturer on AliBaba. It arrived after the infection cleared.

However I had a chance recently to use it and it has been 100% effective. When I feel a boil beginning to sprout, when it is still just an itchy red bump, I hit it with 12 minutes of blue light.

In almost every case 12 minutes is enough, even if the boil has erupted. Itching and pain subsides, if there is a head forming it is cleared, and redness resolves within a couple of days.

Some are a little more stubborn and require more than a single 12-minute hit. I will hit a lesion two or three times - the worst one needed 5 hits, each one day apart.

Amazing - the lesion clears and when the skin finally resolves it eventually sloughs off to reveal the pit where the bacteria lived.

Have had a kind of a rash of these small boils since the warm weather started but everything is under control. If you need to find a blue light google "acne light" or "Blue light 405nm".

Three summers ago I was working in a retirement home and was exposed to a resident with MRSA. I had my first outbreak of boils shortly afterward. I tried every natural remedy on this site with moderate relief. I have to say, I also as a last resort went to the doctor and the emergency room, and the antibiotics they put me on didn't do diddly.

It was when I remembered that people were treating acne with exposure to a specific frequency of blue light that I thought to look up research on whether it worked with MRSA. By golly, yes there was research, and the light killed staph in a petri dish. I thought to myself "Well if it can kill it in a lab, it can kill it on me as well."

I ordered a 415nm blue LED light acne pen from AliBaba and haven't looked back. As soon as the itchy bump forms I will hit it with 12 minutes exposure, and within 48 hours in most cases, the bump subsides. All this without pain, swelling, draining, topical ointments, fuss or muss. Itching subsides within an hour or two in most cases. If it doesn't, I hit it again until it does.

I am currently managing a seasonal outbreak, with new lesions forming every day. I carry the pen with me so I can hit the site as soon as I feel it. For the past two years, what would be a major drama and trauma with ten or twenty of these on my body during bikini weather has been rendered a minor nuisance.

I hope this helps.

Milk of Magnesia

Hi Wanda,

I read your post about the MRSA and was wondering if the info posted by P. Raghaven concerning how the probiotics in milk kefir can kill MRSA would be of help? Here is the Pub Med study on this:

P. Raghaven told how the milk kefir could eradicate MRSA and could stop Type II diabetes in people here on EC.

Here are the posts from P. Raghavan on Earth Clinic on how the probiotics in milk kefir kill the MRSA bacteria.

You can easily make your own from milk kefir grains and see if the MRSA is killed. Best wishes for improved health.

Turmeric and Manuka Honey
Posted by Jon (New Mexico, United States) on 04/27/2018

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.

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.

My youngest son who also had flesh eating boils, did not need any antibiotics or medical care at all since we used ___ ___ [garlic]. 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

___ __ ___ __ __ and how to use it properly. God bless, Cathy

Here are some research links to help:

Hi Everyone,
I want to add some information to the post about the calcium bentonite clay poultices that I wrote here a week ago.

While reading further on the internet, I discovered someone who was mixing the clay with ten parts per million colloidal silver. After covering the boils he found a significant improvement overnight, and after four days of wearing the silver poultice the boil was gone and none have returned in three years. This individual explained the ionic exchange between the silver and the infection being much enhanced by the pulling effects of the clay.

Because the boil on my hand was so serious and spreading so quickly and deeply, I decided to continue with the clay and silver poultice instead of clay and water.

The difference was dramatic! Overnight the silver clay pulled the poison under the skin into a bubble-- like a second degree burn. I was at first alarmed because it looked worse than ever. Night after night I continued the silver clay poultice, wrapped in plastic and held in place with and elastic bandage.

AFTER ONE WEEK, THE INFECTION IS GONE! I also slugged a couple ounces of this silver a day to check anything that might have gone internal, but I believe the poultice really did the trick.

Of important note, my understanding is that MRSA staff reside inside the nose, so I bought the cheapest no-drip nasal spray medicine I could find and emptied the contents and cleaned it out thoroughly, sending filtered water through the spray system for 10 good pumps. Then I filled the bottle with colloidal silver, using this to get the silver inside my nose and sinuses. I rub my nose holes together to spread this completely. I guess this kills the staff where it is carried. Added bonus: stopped a cold in its tracks!

Word about colloidal silver: It is too expensive by the bottles. You can brew your own very cheaply by making a one-time investment in a good, plug-in, steady- current silver generator.

Do not use the battery operated kind. The silver particles are too large and clump together. Look on the internet. There are several good companies with good information (I have no financial interest in these companies).
I am just beginning to appreciate all the uses for silver in fighting pathogens. With a little creativity, there are so many effective treatments possible with this stuff.

Just like ACV and cayenne pepper, silver may be indispensable to maintaining good health in our world which is slowly poisoning itself and hell-bent on profit.

Thank you, Earth Clinic for letting me share this here. To anyone struggling with boils and MRSA, try the silver poultice. It looked as if my hand were being eaten off, but in one week, my skin looks like the infection never happened!

MMS(chlorine Dioxide)/(combined compound of salt solution/ citric acid) One of the most powerful antioxidants on the planet. Kills pathogens(bacterias, fungus, virus) and won't harm healthy cells/tissue. This is the ticket to curing MRSA, please research this natural potent substance. You can use a spray bottle filled with solution to mist on wounds/ speed up healing. Also, you can drink a few drops in a glass of water every hour for 8 hrs a day for a week to irradicate from blood stream. (cures many many other ailments as well)

Dentures and MRSA Connection
Posted by Deirdre (Earth Clinic) on 06/18/2021

Hello everyone,

Was doing and bit of research and came across this review on Amazon. I thought it might be very was very helpful for our EC audience. Has anyone heard of this before?

On September 18, 2020 Bruce Evans wrote:

"Most people with partial and full dentures do not realize that there is a film that grows on them, a bio mass, that is a perfect medium for harmful germs etcetera. Five doctors recently discovered this bio mass and found it supported the growth of MRSA, and fungi, along with some other lesser known germs, that if inhaled could cause the wearer a potentially deadly pneumonia. Regular brushing, soaking, even denture cleaners do NOTHING to kill and remove the bio remains.

This antibiotic, chlorhexidine is one of the things proven to kill and remove the bio mass after a soaking of at least 15 minutes. We remove the denture glue with warm soapy water and then place the dentures in a denture cup filled with chlorhexidine to soak over night. There may be some blue spots remaining which will brush off or be removed with a denture tablet.

Why people are not being told this I cannot say, the papers have been published in medical journals so the data is out there. Where is there a higher incidence of denture use? Where is there a high incidence of pneumonia? Same answer: Elderly population. People are giving themselves MRSA from their dentures..."

I read that aspirin stops MRSA from replicating. I think it also reduces its toxin production. I'm actually making progress now instead of just keeping myself alive. I have MRSA in my kidney and after just a week, my kidney actually feels pretty normal. I'm also using a quart of water kefir and 2 low-level light therapy devices to boost my immune system. one is a violet laser pen and the other is a red led that goes in the nose. I was using these before I started using aspirin but was still in a lot of pain. The violet pen activates the immune system in the kidney.

Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation

SETH,,,,,,, we do UBI instead of flu shots. This year we got our Integrative doctor to mix our blood with H202 and he was amazed how red our blood turned. Sad that us Rednecks have to teach our doctors. We read and they don't.

Right now I have no clue if my Cardiologist will do my EECP or not. It will be off label and subject him to an FDA audit. He is spooked as all doctors are. I understand, but we are a sick, corrupt nation. It's only about $$$$$$$.

* 3% Hydrogen Peroxide (in a spritz bottle)

* Nano Silver Gel

* Antibiotic Cream

* Colloidal Silver Soap

* Baking Soda

* Activated Charcoal Capsals

* Coconut Oil

* Manuka Honey

* Silver Dressing / Bandage

* Cool Mist Vaporizer

DIRECTIONS: Use at least 3 times daily, morning and evening especially, prior to washing or showering affected area:


Stand in shower:

1) Generously spritz MRSA area with 3% Hydrogen Peroxide ("HP") rubbing it into site.

2) Let HP sit and bubble on MRSA site until almost dry.*

3) Take a small towel and vigorously rub MRSA site gently scrubbing old flaky skin off.*

4) Start shower or wash.

5) Use Colloidal Silver Soap and begin washing area.

a. Use a second Colloidal Silver Soap or silver gel soap and wash for non-MRSA areas all over.

b. Scrub and polish with baking soda.

c. Rinse off. Exit shower.

6) Take 1 clean towel pat dry MRSA site.

7) Spritz site with HP - rub and scrub MRSA area with towel again, gently exfoliating flaky skin, til dry.

8) Take a 2nd clean towel and pat dry non-MRSA sites.

9) Take Nano Silver Gel (Collodial Silver Gel) and Antibiotic Cream (combine) and rub all over MRSA site.

10) Cover with a (silver or manuka honey) dressing or air dry as needed.

11) Take 1 or 2 Activated Charcoal Capsals before bed

12) If necessary, add a 2 -3 capfuls of HP to Cool Mist Vaporizer and breath in as long as needed or comfortable before bedtime.

I read or work on computer and have my Vaporizer right near my face and nostrils breathing in HP vapors before. I do this for about 15 min to 1 hr. It adds oxygen to the system.


*This often stings (but not as bad as MRSA). As site cures, stinging will subside. Keep repeating at least 3 times a day as a routine prior to washing and showering. The flaky skin must be removed to not allow MRSA crevices to continue growing and expanding in them. Only use towel once.

Wash in bleach. Keep lots of clean towels on hand for this routine multiple times daily.

Ideally have one towel for MRSA site and a second for non-MRSA site. Do not use MRSA towel on non-MRSA affected areas.

Toss MRSA towels directly into washer with bleach. DO NOT let it touch other surfaces or your skin. Treat it like it has MRSA cooties (cause it does) and it is only fit for the bleach and soap filled washing machine.

All of the ingredients can be bought at Health Food stores like:,,,,,,, etc.

Licorice Root

I read that licorice has a strong inhibitory effect on mrsa and boosts the immune system. The first time I used it I sweated out and started feeling better. After a few days, I'm doing a lot better. I put about an ounce or so of dried root in tea 2 times a day. Also taking homemade milk kefir and kombucha but I need the licorice too or I don't do nearly as well.

Well, I wasn't as well as I thought. Still experimenting. I was pretty blown away by how well it worked at first. Just wanted to let people know.

Posted by Seth (Morton, Wa) on 02/28/2018

I bought some Bacillus Coagulans Capsules. They do work but not nearly as strong as the Kombucha. Im almost totally better from the kombucha. I had a bunch of sores inside my body with puss in my kidney and chest. its all drained out now. not sure if the kombucha will cure me or if its like kefir and just puts them to sleep. My plan is to use colloidal silver now that they are knocked way down and keep drinking kombucha.

Posted by Seth (Morton, Wa.) on 07/06/2018

So I still had some pus in my kidney. I started drinking 4 kombucha's a day and it all just started getting chewed up and liquefying. pretty relieved.

Posted by Anon (Usa) on 07/06/2018

Fresh turmeric seems to work much better than the powder. Ginger from Hawaii. Consider horseradish, mustard seed powder, vitamin e, and lugol's iodine, too. Horseradish and onion can be mixed generously into coleslaw. Turpentine worked somewhat but only if I took it on an empty stomach (with the teaspoon of sugar). Mostly it made me feel very relaxed and warm and relieved some pain. Colloidal silver is amazing, the brand does seem to make a difference. Cranberries can help w/ co-infections. Papaya is also helpful, for me at least. Kefir. So a smoothie: fresh turmeric, papaya, ginger, cranberries, virgin coconut oil, fresh lemon juice, aloe, a scoop of frozen orange juice, and some water :) Grapefruit. The oxygen/magnesium colon cleansers are very refreshing, too. Make sure you make the kombucha correctly or you may be drinking more alcohol than you intend. Kefir can be made by adding milk to the nearly empty bottle of kefir you buy at the store, place in a warmish place overnight.

Kill it dead.

I've had recurrent MRSA boils all over my thighs and butt after my first delivery, I've visited several doctors, tried soaps and creams and antibiotics, u name it, it just kept spreading, finally I decided to use olive oil, just ordinary cooking olive oil, everyday I took off my clothes and rubbed the olive oil all over my thighs and lower body, I did that for almost five days or a week and to my surprise, all of the pimples disappeared and never showed again, this was ten years ago.

I hope this helps.

For MRSA - Tried antibiotics, turmeric, ..but keeps coming back until we discovered manuka honey. Mix Manuka honey with turmeric powder. Most effective treatment... my son is mrsa free for more than a year now.

After battling MRSA for over 3 years now, I have tried Minocycline, Doxycycline, Clindamycin, Rifampin, Hibacleanse, bleach baths, Bactriban, mega doses of turmeric, garlic baths, garlic pills, garlic cream, mega doses of niacin amide, topical manuka honey, silver gel, silver solution, daily laundering of all bedding... The list goes on. Needless to say, as everyone who has ever dealt with MRSA can attest to, it has been extremely frustrating and depressing not to get rid of these painful boils and little itchy red bumps that always appear and take forever to get rid of. It's especially debilitating when these cover your face, neck, and arms. You feel like you have leprosy. So, after trying all of these "remedies" to no avail, I started making my own water Kefir ( a Probiotic) . I ordered 2 tablespoons of water Kefir grains on Amazon.

Step 1: I warmed up 4 cups of spring water ( chlorine and fluoride in tap water will kill the Kefir grains.

Step 2: I add 1/4 cup of dark brown sugar ( use this because the Kefir needs minerals and sugar to grow), and stirred until dissolved.

Step 3: Put the sugar water and kefir grains in a jar, secure the top with a coffee filter and rubber band, place in a warm dark place for 24-48 hours.

Step 4: Strain the kefir grains out.

Drink the probiotic water you now have, and start all over again from step 1.

The results are almost immediate. My boils and sores just start disappearing and drying up. I also put the kefir water in a spray bottle and spray it on my skin, and I put it in a nasal spray bottle and spray it up my nose. I have been doing this for about 2 weeks now and as long as I drink it daily, my skin stays clear. I'm hoping that by doing this daily for a few months, the MRSA will be gone for good.

I will add some research articles supporting the evidence that shows kefir kills MRSA and destroys the biofilms.

Anyone who has battled MRSA and has tried everything else, to no avail, please try this.
