a few new suggestions for MRSA:

I just got over a bad case of MRSA - started with boils in my nostrils then spread to the corners of my mouth. I thought it was cold sores for a long time, until I started getting a bad rash and pimples all down my cheeks from the corners of my mouth down to my chin. Then it started at the outside edges of my eyes. It burned so bad it felt like acid was on my face. I got a lot of help from the remedies here, particularly the tumeric. I swabbed the inside of my nose with a mixture of glycerine, tee tree oil, Grapefruit seed extract and Thieves from Youngs Living essential oils, and added some calendula oil. I also sprayed my face with hydrogen peroxide and colloidal silver. My eyes were a particularly tricky area and what I found to be extremely effective was dunking my face in a bowl of cold ozonated water. I used an inexpensive water ozonator and ozanted cold water for about 15 minutes, then dunked my entire face, holding my breath for as long as possible. I repeated this for about 10 minutes - about as long as the ozone lasts before is becomes oxygen. It was very soothing for my skin and immediately relieved the burning. The rash around my eyes cleared up after the first try.

The other thing I found very helpful, which I have not seen listed here, is zinc oxide ointment - particularly the diaper ointment by Burts Bees - it has zinc oxide, Vits E & A as well as a number of herbs. I put this on my face at night and it really soothed the burning so I could sleep. But the best thing was it dried out the oozing and really sped up the healing process.

Thanks so much for this site - I hope my experiences and suggestions can help someone as much as others have helped me.

I was diagnosed with MRSA a few months back, and, since then, have been plagued with the most painful boils under both of my armpits. The initial treatment was to have the ER doctor lance and pack the boil (which was NOT very pleasant, and more painful than I ever planned on experiencing again), and administer antibiotics (which did not make any sense to me, given the fact that MRSA is caused by antibiotic resistence). Since the doctor offered no hope, no cure, and no alternative treatment, I have taken to treating my own boils (successfully, I might add). When I get a new boil, I use (1) Silver Sol (which is an extremely effective, nontoxic silver solution that is available in a couple of brands that I know of) topically, as well as internally; (2) a tumeric paste - made with tumeric (yes, the grocery store spice), honey, and extra virgin olive oil, or (3) a combination of the two. The applications have helped to immediately alleviate the pain, as well as allowed a quick healing time from the boils. The one drawback is that, since my boils are sometimes extremely large, they rarely ever burst and drain, and when they do, it's only been a small amount. This last time around, I set out to find a method of bursting them, so that they could drain, and (perhaps! ) not return. Since I can take the Silver Sol internally to kill bacteria, I have it in my mind that, if I can get this darn puss out of my body, I can perhaps kill these germs once and for all (I'll let you know how that goes! ). My friend told me about an old-wives'-tale method of using the membrane from the inside of an egg. She had used the method on her daughter's boil just the previous week, and it had worked well. Well, being the adventerous soul that I am, I immediately went downstairs, and began cracking eggs. As I was instructed, I cracked the egg, pulled the membrane out of the shells, applied the membrane to my armpits, and covered the areas with a well-sealed bandage. I went to bed that night, and I didn't feel much happening, except a little twinge here and there during the night. The next day I got up, and promptly removed the bandages - and nothing. So I called my friend, and I complained that it had not worked. She laughed at me and said, "You have to leave it on longer than just one night, DoDo! " Ok; so back to the drawing board. That night, I reapplied the concoction to my armpits, and resolved myself to smelling like a rotten, dried-up egg for the rest of the week. My friend said that it had taken about 5 days for it to work on her daughter, and, it being 108 degrees here WITHOUT the heat index, I pretty much expected to have to stay by myself during the work week. So I allowed this thing to stay for an entire week, Saturday to Saturday, without changing the bandages, and without taking a shower (I wasn't exactly sure what the proper protocol was, and I just wanted this thing to work! ). At the end of the week, I took the thing off, and. . . Nothing. Ok, so I, by nature, am a pretty tenacious person. I decided that, if this thing could work for my friend's daughter, then there was just NO way it was NOT going to work for me! It's not really ENTIRELY true the NOTHING happened; the only thing I noticed was that my boils had gotten larger (maybe this was because the puss was being drawn up towards the egg???). So this time, I waited a week (so that I wouldn't be banned from work for smelling like I had rolled around in some rotting food products) and I went back to showering every day (I'm sure my co-workers appreciated me for this). The following weekend, I went back to applying the egg membrane to my underarms. As luck would have it, the weather turned a bit milder this week. It had rained a couple of times, and the temperature during the times when I was outside (very early in the morning, while heading to work; and in the evenings, after work) was only in the lower hundreds (YOU might not appreciate the difference there, but I have learned to adapt). This time, I was able to keep the thing on for the majority of the week without a huge amount of odor (though I must admit that there was a couple of times when I felt the need to apply my natural deordorant to the areas around the bandage! ). I think somewhere around Monday-Tuesday, I began to realize that something had happened at some point, but I didn't really have the time to investigate. Wednesday, I got to the point where I would at least look at the bandage, and I noticed that the bandage had some dried blood (or something) on it that I could see from the outside. On Thursday (last night), things had calmed down a little in my household, and I was actually able to attend to my wounds. What I discovered was that the large boil under my right arm HAD actually popped, and there was a large hole in its place. My friend had told me to expect this, so I didn't feel the need to freak out. I was actually pretty pleased to see the large gaping hole in my skin, which is a testament to Darwin's theory of evolution and survival of the fittest. The area was flat, and there was no pain. The smaller boil under my left arm had also, apparently, popped, but I had difficulty identifying the hole there. No matter; I was still pleased. So, that night, of course, I walked around my house telling everyone that I came in contact with that my boil had popped, and waiting for them to cheer enthusiastically for me over my victory (only my 13-yr-old son managed to pull that one off, but I have no illusions over the placation there). Today (literally) I am boil-free, and there were no scalpels involed! Take THAT, modern medicine!

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.

I have already sent my story dealing with MRSA but I have to take issue with your cures for MRSA. There is no cure for MRSA only management. MRSA like normal staph live on the body and in moist areas such as the nose and sinus cavities. Turmeric like antibiotics works on the blood and in the body to remove the infection. There are some very powerful antibiotics and I have been on a few that do kill these infections within the body along with the good bacteria as well. I do not know if turmeric kills these good bacteria. The best way that I have found for managing my MRSA outbreaks is antibiotic ointment over the counter is perfectly fine. Put some of this on a qtip and rub in your nostrils once or twice a day. I stayed boil free for 18 months doing this and stopped for a couple of months due to surgery and in that time I had another outbreak. I have since started this again and remain boil free.

For once, here is some really good news from medical research, which might be of some interest or help to some people. They have found that vitamin B3, in the form of niacinamide, when supplemented in megadosage, considerably helps to get rid of MRSA. The reason for this is that B3 greatly increases the neutrophils count in the immune system. The researchers discovered that taking larger dose B3 effectively increases the strength of the immune system over 1000 times!! Here is the research proof:

The implications of the above research are that taking megadose B3 will help to cure much more than just MRSA. This means that B3 can be a very useful adjunct for candida, HIV AIDs and many other human diseases because the immune system is so hugely stimulated and supportive to the body. Furthermore, taking megadose B3 will not hurt the good bacteria in the gut. All good news.

My interest in B3 has been stimulated because neutrophils(as will as eosinophils) are found in all mucus glands in the body. In the extraneous mucus glands -- in the eyes, ears, nose throat, lungs, mouth, intestines and uterus (ie all initial routes of infection into the body)-- these mucus regions represent the main initial defense from outside attack and infection by pathogens. Iodine -- a very effective broadband pathogen killer in its own right -- is also always found in all mucus glands of the body. So by simply supplementing proper orthomolecular dosage levels of B3(as niacinamide) and iodine(as lugols iodine or kelp extract) you can greatly raise immune sysstem capability, further ensuring the effectiveness of the mucus gland's defence against outside pathogen attack and infection, thus ensuring a better protected outcome for the human body against outside pathogen entry.

I've also recently ordered the book Niacin: The Real Story by Abram Hoffer, Andrew Saul and Harold Foster. I will report back any other interesting facts and finds that I discover on vitamin B3 at a later date.

Bill, I found the link within the link to another study(47) which suggests that it would take about an acute 6 gram dose to achieve the serum level of of nicotinamide, but then they refer to another study (42) at about 1.6 grams per day that produced neutrophilia in the blood. I had to look that up. There are multiple causes of this condition from a bacterial infection to CML and it warns that patients should be monitored for this condition while dosing at that level.

Overall it sounds like there is a lot of potential with nicotinamide , but the dosing and safety needs to be better understood.

Hi Art... I would agree with you in what you say about neutrophilia(with some caveats). It goes without saying that if you take higher dose B3 then you should fully understand your body condition as well as -- and here I am in complete agreement with Mike from Montreal's recent frustrated post -- fully understand through you own validation and have faith in the remedy you are taking. But the question also arises -- What then is the proper and acceptable orthomolecular dosage for niacinamide or niacin ? The recommended RDA dosage is currently a 10 - 15 mgs per day. This recommended dosage was derived from a general study done in 1913 on B vitamins. No other studies, except independent orthomolecular studies on niacin/niacinamide(which have all been completely ignored), have been forthcoming or accepted to change the RDA. So the RDA remains at a miniscule 10 - 15 mgs. So who do you believe ? -- The orthomolecular research and dosages or the RDA? It's really up to you. Even Ted recommends dosages of niacinamide at 500 mgs twice a day for certain problems -- and he is a biochemist and understands body chemistry and drugs better than any of us.

Abram Hoffer, an independent orthomolecular researcher, has fully documented that he has used niacin dosages of 9 grams - 30 grams daily to cure schizophrenia. He believed, with good reason, that schizophrenia was actually caused by a great lack of niacin in the body. He also found that using dosages of up to 3 grams a day greatly helped with problems like Fibromyalgia, Depression and Heart disease. Just search on "Hoffer niacin" or "Saul niacin" in Google search to read all about his research. Hoffer, after decades of niacin use, always maintained that niacin/niacinamide were both fairly safe to take at higher dosage. He always maintained that people would also live longer if they took higher niacin/niacinamide dosages -- he determined that dosages of up to 3 grams a day were quite safe.

I would also agree with you that when you have a disease like neutrophilia it would certainly be dangerous to take higher dose niacin/niacinamide. But if you are inferring that, because of this singular danger, people should therefore not take higher dose niacin/niacinamide then that is dangerous logic which could divert sufferers from taking niacn/niacinamide through fear of using this useful vitamin. Certainly, for those still with fears about niacin/niacinamide and little real knowledge about this B vitamin, it makes sense to to do your own research on the benefits of niacin or consult your doctor before you start taking higher dose niacin/niacnamide to ensure that you do not have prior problems or tendencies with diseases like neutrophilia.

For myself I take regular dosages of 1.5 -- 3 grams of niacin(together with all the B vitamins) a day because it helps the blood, aids digestion and also relaxes me. When I have read the book Niacin: The Real Story I will try and post more facts and research.

This is interesting, Bill. It gets difficult on who and what to believe and then niacin and niacinamide studies are probably not interchangeable. You take niacin and I take niacinamide. For me the niacin flushing was just too much at 2 to 2 1/2 grams per day for me so I stopped using it.

If I was understanding the study link (42?) correctly, it sounded like the 1.6 gram/day dose had caused the neutrophilia in some people and this was the reason for warning that monitoring for this possibility might be needed.

I think I've read Ted's comments that he doesn't recomend niacin for the purpose of lowering cholesterol because he feels it sends excesses to the liver and this he feels may damage the liver over time, if I remember correctly. As you suggest, he is probably the most experienced person on Earth Clinic and it is hard to just set aside his comments or ignore them.

As far as MRSA, I wonder if topical application using nanoencapsulated or liposome niacinamide/nicotinamide would have similar benefit without the potential side effects or possibly a lower oral dose combined with the topical or just an encapsulated lower oral dose. I know that niacinamide is generally good for the skin and helps reduce tewl. Proctor & Gamble has a complete cosmetic line(Olay) based on niacinamide for wrinkle reduction and improvement of skin tone and texture. Judging by the amount of advertising they do, it must be working out for them. I think they have published two or three studies on it.

On an unrelated note, Bill, I seem to remember you posting a home made topical formulation you made that had castor oil in it and I think you said you were using it on your face for wrinkle reduction?? If that is correct, do you still use it and are you still happy with the results? If so, what is your current formulation? If it wasn't you who posted that, I'm sorry for the mistake. There are just so many posts and suggestions on Earth Clinic it is difficult to remember who posted what and a lot of times I am not able to find them when I go back to look for them. Thank You, Bill!

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.

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.

What an inspiring story, Sharon! You've been through so much but you obviously have never given up. You have a wonderful and wise Mom! I love onions and eat them raw (don't like them cooked, though). Whereas my husband won't eat them and, right now, is suffering from a cold. I don't know if it's the onions that are keeping me from getting it but they certainly aren't doing me any harm (other than "onion breath"). Thanks for sharing your home remedy. Good luck and may your health continue to improve. Cheers, Bess

OK, so I wasn't paying too much attention to the boil on my upper chest because I periodically suffer acne breakouts there. It was a little tender and itchy but nothing to be worried about since cysts feel like that on occasion. When it broke, it left a little crater and I thought "Hm, that's different".

By the evening of the next day it was still weeping, and it hurt like billy-oh and I thought "uh-oh".

I applied tincture of iodine but by that point I think it was a little late. It closed over but the tissue beneath was inflamed. I have successfully used iodine to fend off blood poisoning and every other sort of infection but this one was fighting back. It was growing bigger by the hour. I thought I might have to go see a doctor - my last resort.

I am allergic to sulfa and penicillin (and derivatives) and strongly resist antibiotic intervention because I do not want to develop tolerance to the exotics. Plus I hate how antibiotics just screw up your entire chemistry.

Then I thought about oregano. I have used oregano powder capsules (specific brand +80% carvacrol) to cure UTIs. I took 4 capsules, slathered the wound with oil of oregano (OUCH! ), bandaged it and went to bed praying.

4 hours later I woke up and the MRSA infection was much more localized. I took 4 more capsules, redressed the wound, and went back to bed.

In the morning the infection was almost entirely localized at the original pindot. The weeping and oozing around it, which had grown to about the size of a quarter before bed, had stopped. I took 4 more capsules of oregano, redressed the wound, and now about 18 hours since my panic attack, all pain associated with infection is gone.

This bug is a beast. Oregano is lysol for the bloodstream. The brand I use is in a blue and yellow label bottle. I thank God for oregano several times a year - works equally well for viruses and bacteria it seems to me.

Just an update.

Today was the fifth day with this awful open sore. It started as a pinhead and was finally arrested in its progress about the size of a quarter.

Aside from the oregano, I had been using iodine and hydrogen peroxide, and I am not certain how much of the skin lesion expansion was due to my having burned myself with the antiseptics.

Anyway, today was kind of a crisis. It wasn't closing up and was still weeping and oozing. For about an hour I thought the thing was doubling in size and I really thought I might have to knuckle under and go for the antibiotics.

I took 4 oregano capsules at 10 am. Then another 5 at noon. I was working so I couldn't really keep track of it. I just slathered it with hydrogen peroxide and covered it with a cotton wad and a bandaid. Then made plans to visit the walk-in clinic after my shift at 2 pm.

When I went to get changed, I couldn't believe my eyes. It had gone from dark red around all the edges to pink in the center and light red at the edges.

I went home and thought "Great the solution is more oregano! "

So at 3 pm I took 6 more, which was probably about 4 too many. Yes, you can take too much oregano. The symptoms of overdose are a tingling burning sensation all over the body, with skin flushing like a sunburn.

I drank about 1.5 litres of water and waited for the symptoms to subside. They wore off by about 7 pm. They were not entirely unpleasant, and certainly I thought that nothing else was going to survive the OD. If I had any fungal or viral infections as well, they were probably toast as well.

By 7 pm the lesion had dried and scabbed over for the first time since Sunday night.

Just thought I would share this about oregano. It's really a bomb, and is very very strong medicine.

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.

Oil of oregano killed the MRSA. Here it is 1 year later and i thought i was MRSA free, and there it is a new nasty boil on my inner thigh. I went and bought ____ ___ , just ask for 1 oz __ __. (accept no substitutes, must say ___ on bottle ) I have used the reguler strength in the past, this is a few times stronger. For 2 days I took 2 droperfulls per day (180 lb male ) than went to 1 droperfull per day for 2 weeks. This stuff is very (medicine was not created to taste good ! )chase it like a shot. I put oil of oregano, and a big square Bandaid on the boil the first night and it burned like hell .The next morning put a hot washcloth on it( brings it to a head) and it opened and drained. put the oil and bandaid on it for about 5 days. Incredible healing. I still continue one half dropper oil daily and pray to God it does not come back. I have tried EVERYTHING a few of them are listed on this sight.Turmeric did not do much for me and irritated my digestive tract. Some seemed to help, but gave limited results.This worked better than anything (including some very expensive antibiotics) Get the oil online for less Please try this, I posted this because I want to help people, and I hope this will work for others

I picked up a Staph infection from a friend who had slept on my sofa. After, 7 days-I got 3 skin eruptions on my inner thigh and starting feeling sick. After seeing a doctor-he wanted to put me on a string of antibiotics. Antiobiotics usualy leaves me with a yeast infection or thrush. After having such bad experiences with antibiotics, I went and got oil of Oregano for about 20.00 I used 4 drops in water and 1 drop under my tongue, Within 2 hours-my energy came back and I started to feel better. After 5 days-I can no longer tell that there was anything wrong with me, in the first place. I used oil of Oregano before when eating out because most restaurants are very dirty and full of workers that carry bacteria, so it has always worked for food poisioning but it also worked for staph and the boils that appear as a sympton of this infection.

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.

Penetrating MRSA Biofilm

Posted by Skeptic (Cuenca, Azuay, Ecuadorabonan Sent) on 04/28/2013

Do you know of anything that will penetrate the biofilm that MRSA secretes that is impermeable to ANY antibiotics? When patients with prosthetic features such as titanium knees contract MRSA, the standard procedure is to surgically remove the infected prosthesis and then treat with intravenous Vancomycin and 3 months later, install new prostheses. Is there anything you are aware of that will penetrate this biofilm and kill the MRSA? IBM/IBN has developed a hydrogel that is successful in this endeavor, but it is not commercially available and they won't release any to me for testing, in vivo.

Dentists commonly use Calcium Hydroxide to treat MRSA in root canals, but we don't know if it will penetrate the biofilm in the case of a patient with prostheses. We are willing to try any product that we find will penetrate the biofilm and kill the underlying bacteria, in vitro, by canulating arthroscopically to allow infusion into the area surrounding the prosthesis. There are quite a few well documented NON antibiotic substances that will kill MRSA in vitro, such as oligomeric proanthocyanadins found in cranberry extracts, and methylglyoxal, the active ingredient in Manuka honey. The question is, will any of them penetrate the biofilm AND kill the MRSA? Any thoughts on this matter would be appreciated. We are trying to develop a protocol that will avoid prosthesis removal and the benefit to mankind should be obvious. These kinds of infections in patients with prostheses are common all over the world and are especially so in certain hospitals here in Ecuador.

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.

In this site they say milk of magnesia treats MRSA and DMSO causes elements with it to penetrate tissue...

HI, I asked my nurse friend about this issue and she said topical activated charcoal would knock it out. She works with NDs and runs clinics... Hope this helps... Love, JOY

I take 80,000 SU of "Serrapeptase" every day. It needs to be taken on an empty stomach and it WILL break down the biofilm. If you take it with food, it will work to break down the food and not the biofilm. Take it as a regular supplement and NAC with it also helpful but not necessary. It won't work over night, so needs to be taken regularly but it should do the trick to keep it from building up. I hope this helps and you can research it as well. Sometimes I get thick, gooey spit coming from my mouth and that is the only side effect I've had. I guess this is one way the biofilm is breaking down and leaving the body.

I used a combination of NAC and MSM to break the biofilm. It's what my functional medicine doctor suggested and sure enough it worked.

Phage Therapy

Phage therapy is the only real way to cure MRSA. Other "remedies" will help to keep the outbreaks under controls, but they will not cure it. There is a large and growing movement among health professionals in the western world to legalize phage therapy, but there is also a lot of resistance because phages can not be patented and patented drugs are part of the business model of western pharmaceutical companies. However, chemical antibiotic therapies stopped working a long time ago and now cause more problems than they solve. It is safe and effective and has been used to treat lots of bacterial infections for almost 100 years. Read about phage therapy. There are many websites that have information.

I believe this to be the absolute truth. I have one of the most severe cases of MRSA/Visa that has ever been found in the U.S. After 6 1/2years of nightmarrish suffering and disfigurement, I am near death from the absolute total destruction of my health due to MRSA. I have tried every remedy and then some. Most all do NOT work (most on this site unfortuantely) and the ones that do are never seemingly enough. Phage terapy is something I am now considering, only I understand you must travel to Russia or the UKRAINE to undergo the specific procedure which is my only barrier currently. If there is anyone who has any specific information about this procedure or who could help please feel free to contact me. I could use a friend, Thanks Jon

Jon, have you tried ultraviolet blood irradiation? It's used in other countries like Cuba where there were no antibiotics. They are using it in hospitals in Texas now I've heard.
