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.

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 a story Sharon! You are living proof that alternative treatments really work. And the perseverance of both you and your Mom is just amazing. God bless both of you always and thank you so much for this post. It just encourages people like us to not give up in our quest for good health.
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.

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.

Wild oil of oregano with P73 kills MRSA as well as many parasites, virus, fungi & bacteria.
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. http://www-03.ibm.com/press/us/en/pressrelease/40188.wss#feeds
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.
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.

Skin Lesions: My sweetheart had a black, odd shaped, itchy lesion on his right nostril. He mentioned it to his doctor whenever he went for a check-up and was given a steroid cream that seemed to help but whenever he'd stop using it the lesion came back. We thought it was a fungus when it spread to his cheek, but when he went back to his doctor they took a sampling of it and said it was 'due to the cold'. Minnesota is infamous for it's frigid winters!. He was prescribed another steroid cream, told to use it sparingly and everyday.. but the same thing happened again..as soon as he stopped using it the thing would come back!
In our attempt to eat healthier we'd started having a pink grapefruit for breakfast. After a few days of the grapefruit, the itchy patch stopped itching and was gone completely within a week. Pink Grapefruit, no sugar, no salt...just peel it and eat it.
EC: Lesions inside the nose can indicate a staph infection...
..."If the lesion is inside the nose you most likely have a Staph infection. The treatment for the lesion inside the nose is to get a prescription for Centany Ointment and apply it inside the nose twice a day for 2-3 weeks. If the lesions is outside the nose then you have a cyst, most likely an acne cyst.
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!
MRSA on a 3 year Old Boy
I have been fighting MRSA for the last two years. It got so bad just recently that after a round of 10 days of Doxicycline I immediately broke out right after the tenth day as if I had not been taking any antibiotics. During that period, I found this website and began treating my MRSA by taking 3 pills of Pro-Biotics and drinking Acai Berry Juice 4 times a day. I mean its gone!!! Unfortunately, most regretably and horrendously, my son has contracted MRSA. Here's the question. How do I treat him for MRSA with this regiment that I am following. Pro-Biotics say is for adult use only. What's the dosage for my little 3 year old? I know going to the doctor would be an absolute waste. Thanks for your help.
