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!
Don't Use Soap
Try not using soap, and put nothing else on your skin, unless you have to use a natural lotion to stop itching due to shaving. I've had mild, recurrent, MRSA for years. I started taking probiotics and that helped a lot. But my skin didn't completely clear up until I stopped washing my skin with soap. Any kind of soap. A research article I found goes more into depth about the skin's natural antimicrobial lipids. When you wash away those oils, you wash away your skin's natural antimicrobial defense system. Once or twice a week, take a warm ( not hot) bath or shower. I would recommend just washing your "peri-area" and your armpits with a natural soap, and just let water wash the rest, and then pat dry.
I will post the article link below. http://www.jlr.org/content/49/1/4.full.pdf+html
I will add another research article link for Kefir and MRSA. This is probably the best one to read. http://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s12010-008-8303-3#/page-2
Rubbing Alcohol or Acetone
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.
For those of you who consume garlic and onions as a natural antiobiotic, there is a 1000 year old text which describes the remedy which is known to be far more effective then conventional antibiotics when it was tested.
For those of you who are interested, here is the link.
I will be honest, when I come upon information such as this, I feel stronger in my convictions to solve health problems naturally.
EC: Very interesting! Thank you for sending it.
I have found with MRSA the most important thing to eliminate pain and to promote healing is to get the boil opened up as soon as possible. The best, fastest and cheapest way to do this is by taking regular soaking baths in epsom salt. Also, take oil of oregano 2 or 3 times a day. I usually take 3 to 5 drops in a half a glass of orange juice. The juice masks the taste of the oil. I prefer to use DoTerra Essential oils as my trusted brand of oils. They have many other oils that you can use as well but Oregano has always done the trick for me.
HI ALL, , , , , , , , got a sad call this morning at 6 am from a young kid that was going to work at our farm today. He said he would not be able to work because his PapPa just died.
His PapPa had a hip replacement and it became infected with MRSA almost 6 months ago. They went to many doctors, but none could help. I suggested Hydrogen Peroxide IV's. That is not traditional medicine and was rejected. I shut up. The doctors kept trying to cut out the infection and finally he was to go to a plastic surgeon tomorrow. He had been on antibiotics all this time along with vac wound therapy . I now want to cry as I know personally of people who were cured with just 3 IV's of Hydrogen Peroxide. Why did I not push the issue?
A church member who went to the great Medical School at Vanderbilt for cancer. He too is gone. I was too timid to intercede with what natural cures I know from my research and personal bout with cancer.
So when I get my comeuppance from members on this site, it rolls off like water on a duck's back. I have watched too many friends die by my not pushing the issue. You may not like my style, but I have your interest at heart.

Dear Robert Henry,
What a sad story. I am so sorry for that boy.
I too have seen people suffer and not be willing to try something that is safe and easy because it seems, well, ridiculous to them. But I know you know that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make him drink. I don't know if pushing the issue will help. I have taken natural things to sick people and they don't even try them. Or take one dose of whatever and decide it doesn't work.
I know you have the best interest of other's at heart.

HI U OM, , , , , , , , , ,
Kinda getting tired of being beat about the head and shoulders for telling things that will help folks. I got at least three supporters and consider you one of them. Spent the day at a friend's house showing them how to make Lyposomal Vit C and Glutathione.
Got to keep what few friends I have, alive.

I have been infected twice with MRSA in operating rooms during abdominal surgery. It was put in me accidentally. Both times Johns Hopkins hospital used I.v. anti-biotics and oral anti-biotics both with very limited results. Upon going home from surgery, my fever would wax and wane constantly for weeks. Until I stopped taking their anti-biotics and started taking oil of oregano. Both times, all symptoms disappeared within 3 days. I also had a burst appendix several years ago, and didn't exhibit any symptoms for 6 days as I was taking oil of oregano for a minor cold I had at the time. The hospital was stunned that my WBC was normal, even though my entire abdomen was full of e-coli bacteria.
Penetrating MRSA Biofilm
I have just been reading a book on propolis (from bees) and it says that MRSA has been healed by using propolis. You can get it in a tincture form and apply it to the area. It seems to work pretty quick. The book is by Mitja Vosnjak called The Miracle of Propolis if you can find it.
Penetrating MRSA Biofilm
In this site they say milk of magnesia treats MRSA and DMSO causes elements with it to penetrate tissue...
Hi. I have a MRSA infection just above my elbow. I have been on antibotics for about 2 months and its just about gone. Its a closed wound but doesnt seem to want to go completely away. The area is also pretty much flat just light red in color. Ive been applying silver gel to it for about 1 month, but dont know if its doing any good since the MRSA wound is closed up. So last night I applyed garlic I crushed and apllyed it to the Mrsa wound for about 8 hours. When I woke up and removed the garic the wound had indentation on it where the garlic was applyed and now the Mrsa wound is bright red almost like a burn, and slightly raised. Can someone please tell me what happened?
I have so much to say, that I am finding it difficult where to begin. What I write now is only a brief summary of a portion of a lengthy battle with MRSA. My struggle with MRSA began about six years ago, when I awoke one morning with a painful blister on the front of my neck. I sought professional medical help, but unfortunately my illness was misdiagnosed as a simple ingrown hair infection. For this was a time of what appeared to be uncertainty across this country for what was to be a most disturbing and an extremely misunderstood bacterial infection. After receiving unsuccessful care for more than six months through my primary doctor, I was later directed to an infectious disease specialist. Round after round of antibiotics produced minimal and sometimes adverse affects. I began to have break outs, and puss filled sores through out my body. There were times when I had given up all hope, and I begin to have thoughts that my life was over and that this infection would ultimately take my life. I would eventually lose my job, as my place of business discovered my illness. My supervisor told me not to come back without a statement from my doctor which demonstrated I was cleared from the infection.
On a personal level I find it simply outrageous that 21st century medical professionals are unable to have a morsel of an impact on a bacterial infection. Through this experience I have lost respect for western medicine, and have found myself looking through eyes of suspicion at the cause and nature of the birth of MRSA. All of us can see how disheartening it is to hear the afflictions experienced from MRSA victims and some will eventually lose their life because they are being led down an erroneous direction by trusted medical professionals. Yet, there are answers right here, right now, which can make a difference and help save lives.
So, I had given up on doctors, all I had left to guide me through this challenge was my experience. And it was my experience that would ultimately lead me to the help that would make all the difference in the world. Some of the information that I am sharing now will help to choke the fuel which feeds MRSA, but don't just take my word for it. The information that I am sharing can be backed by science, and through Shannon Brown and his team in California this is exactly what they are doing. If you or a loved one has MRSA please take the time to do an internet search for Shannon Brown. Even if you decide not to use his product, you will be inundated with information that may save your life. It was through Shannon that I truly got an education on how MRSA works, and what I could do to stop it in it tracks for good.
This is what I've learned from my personal experience,
*Sugar - MRSA lives and feeds on sugar. Your diet will play a huge role in eliminating MRSA. After eating a glazed doughnut one morning, I found that an infected boil increased in size and pain in a matter of hours. I later discovered that this information pertaining to sugar was being shared by Shannon Brown.
*Razors - Only use electric razors. If you are living with MRSA Non electric razors will leave openings in your skin that are perfect infection sites for MRSA to invade.
*Tumeric - By taking 1 500 mg tablet 2x a day, I have noticed a decrease in outbreaks on the skin. The only concern I have about turmeric is, although one may be controlling the outbreaks, one is still living with MRSA. Therefore a person may be unknowingly spreading MRSA through touch and human contact. I feel this is something that must be addressed as the goal should be eradication, not simply controlling the outbreaks. This may actually be doing harm in addition to good.
* Shannon Browns' product. - Shannon's product is superior in the fight against MRSA and is currently what has saved my life. There are thousands of other recipients that have also had remarkable results, and are living examples of the fact that you can beat MRSA for good.
I know that what I am attempting to share will benefit many MRSA victims. However, I do not write this for victims alone. I write this now for those who find it in themselves to go beyond the borders of conventional medicine, and seek to heal themselves their loved ones, and most importantly to eradicate MRSA from their lives. I share this for those who are fighters. For I am one with you!
I wish everyone success in their struggle with this affliction! May you find wholeness and complete health this very year!
Turmeric and Raw Honey
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.
I had this horrible staph infection on the back of my legs and I spent days putting ACV (which usually works for most things) on it. Nothing happened. The staph was replicating and the boils were getting bigger. Finally, I went to my doctor who ordered systemic antibiotics and it went away in about 4 days. A month later the staph came back. I hadn't been sleeping due to my 6 month old being sick with his first cold, bad cough and congestion. My immune system was just worn down. I didn't want to do antibiotics again because I'm still breastfeeding, but I had heard about Manuka honey and skin infections. I figured I'd try it for a few days and if it didn't work, I'd call in and get the antibiotics. I put it on at night, and then the next morning, the boil had shrunk. It was still red, but the "anger" had gone out of it. It wasn't large and painful and "alive" any longer. I was in shock.
The other thing that was going on was that I had caught my baby's cold. My throat was killing me and I was starting to get that cough and congestion. I decided that if it worked so well on my leg, maybe it would work well on my throat. I took a teaspoon full and within an hour my throat stopped hurting. It then turned into a chest thing where there were some resperatory stuff coming up, but not in that violent way at the beginning of an illness, more like at the end. A few hours later, I took another teaspoon full and napped with my baby for an hour and a half, and when I woke up, cough and mucus from my chest - totally gone! I can't believe it.
I cured many Staph infections large and small which are very common in the humid tropical regions of the world. The simple solution was:
Yunnan Baiyao which is a very common remedy available in any Traditional Chinese Medicine ( TCM ) shop. Cost a few $ only and is in powder or capsule form which can be appied topically and or taken orally. It heals these boils in one or two days like magic. Search Google for more info. Also good to keep skin dry and clean as possible with good nutrition to avoid recurrence.
Manuka Honey, Alkaline Diet, Supplements
After reading everything on this website (and beyond) for curing staph infections - I tried it all! I did not want to go through multiple rounds of antibiotics searching for one it would not be resistant to. I tried: turmeric powder, drinking raw garlic that had been crushed and sitting for 15 mins, bathing in crushed garlic, applying crushed garlic to wound, aplying baking soda mixed with filtered water directly to the wound, applying manuka honey to boil (16 ), an alkaline diet including foods & supplements - ACV and baking soda, seaweeds, wheat grass, calcium/magnesium, and bathing in bentonite clay. I think that's it.
By far what worked best for me was:
a) applying manuka honey (go for an expensive jar - totally worth it) directly to the wound. I saw an immediate difference each time after applying for hours
b) alkaline diet and supplements. As soon as I approached the healing range my infection cleared up so fast!
The garlic applied directly stung, but didn't seem to do much. Garlic bathing helped a bit, but not as much as simply applying the honey. Baking soda applied directly dried out the wound but didn't help it heal.
Thank you everyone for all your helpful ideas!!
My name is Sharon and I have had over 15 major back and hip surgeries. I have had many doctors work on my back since 1990 for 3 messed up disc. In 1994 and 1995 I had to have screws placed in my SI Area in both of my hips! That helped me get out of a wheel chair. In 1995 I broke 1 of my screws in my right hip and had to have it removed they replaced the screws with a large metal wedge! 1997 I had metal plates placed in my lower back area covering the L3, L4, L5 area. I stayed in the hospital over a month. On my way home I had a lot of pain in my right hip. My Doctors said to go to ER and get a shot. While there the Dr. said it looked like my right hip scar was hot and red-to go home and lay on a ice pack. I did so.
The next morning I woke up and could not straighten up. I felt my back area and there was something protruding out of my back. I went to the restroom to look at it in the mirror and when I seen this baseball size mound on my spine, I sat down and my whole back exploded out. I then was rushed to the Atlanta Medical Hospital where the disease control center said I had MRSA (Staff Infection) in my back really bad. They had to remove the metal from my back and my right hip. In the process my spine became broke into several pieces and half of my right hip also. I ended up having my entire spine removed from L3 down to S1! No disc and no virtabra at all. My doctors took pieces of my bone and made a bone bridge and grafted it into my back from L2 branching over to the crest of each of my hip bones. Think of a turkey wish bone. That is what my spine looks like. I was under their care for over 2 years but the infection would not go away. I was on every medication known to man. And in 1999 I had my 2 lines clot up in my hickmon port that was placed in my chest. This was how I was taking medication into my body for the infection. It was keeping me alive. When I went to the ER to get the lines unclotted they damaged the line and had to pull it out. The doctor sent me home from the ER and I called my doctor's and they said we are so sorry, that I only had 3 weeks to live- there was no more medication that I could take. My home nurse that was cleaning out my whole in my back (7 inch x 3 in deep hole) she was released.
I called my mother she had heard about the onion being used for infections many years ago. And she went to the store and bought a 5 pound bag of white onions. She took each onion and peeled them and then placed each one at a time on plate in the microwave for 1 min. Till they were soft. She carried a platter full of them into my room and took some saline water that was left behind by the nurse and poured it into my hole then she took a turkey baster and removed the fluid from my hole. She then took these warm oions and placed them inside of my back filling the entire hole. It was so nice the warmth of the onions felt like a heating pad inside of me. She then layed gauze over top of it and then a ace bandage and wrapped it around my waist. She did this 4 times a day for 4 months. My back started to heal up really fast to where there was only a 1 inch hole in my 4th month. I went back to my doctors and they run a culture on me there was no more MRSA. Dr. DeBoise at the Disease Control center in Atlanta, Ga. was so amazed at what he seen and I told him what my mother did. After that the infection never came back again. I continue to use onion's for toothaches, and any cuts I get. I am living proof of it and I am now 48 years old and it is 2011 Thank you Lord for your natural cures and this wonderful onion plant it saved my life.
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.
