Natural News recently reported frightening information regarding the development of new, antibiotic-resistant strains of MRSA and flesh-eating bacteria appearing in hospitals around the country. These findings indicate that even the last-stand antibiotic Vancomycin is no longer effective against the ravages of these deadly infections. http://www.naturalnews.com/036031_MRSA_antibiotics_infections.html
In addition to my five previous recommended remedies, here are five more powerful natural treatments that protect against MRSA, flesh-eating bacteria, and other superbugs.
First, a two-fold approach to prevention
There are two methods of prevention for using natural medicines to fight antibiotic-resistant bacteria. One of the best ways to lower susceptibility is to strengthen your system by eating alkaline foods like fresh fruits and vegetables. The most effective way to obtain medicinal benefits from your food is through juicing. If you're scheduled for elective surgery, start juicing immediately to strengthen your immune system beforehand by creating an alkaline environment where no bacteria, fungus or virus can survive.
Additionally, use colloidal silver prophylactically to protect yourself before a hospital stay. Start taking it daily in small doses as soon as you find out when you'll be admitted. If you end up in the hospital in an emergency situation, start taking colloidal silver as soon as possible; and in both cases, continue it through the duration of your stay, and for at least two weeks thereafter.
Fighting anti-biotic resistant MRSA and superbug infections
If you contract MRSA or a flesh-eating bacteria use one or more of the following natural treatments; or combine them with those mentioned in my other article.
Pascalite is a type of bentonite clay found only in the mountains of Wyoming. It possesses remarkable healing powers. When used topically, it's known for its ability to draw infections from wounds in a matter of hours or days, bringing about total recovery.
Turmeric has been used in Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine for thousands of years to treat a wide range of infections. It's antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties have been found to be highly effective in the treatment of bacterial infections and can be used internally and topically for MRSA and other skin lesions.
Both turmeric and Pascalite should be made into a paste or combined with each other by mixing them with water and applying directly to the skin lesion. Keep moist by covering with plastic wrap or warm compresses. Reapply as needed. Additionally, you can mix either or both powders with Manuka honey for a potent remedy to treat MRSA and flesh-eating bacteria.
Oil of Oregano is an essential oil and best known for its ability to kill bacteria, controlling staph infections like MRSA. It has antiseptic, antioxidant, anti-fungal, anti-viral, anti-parasitic, anti-inflammatory, and pain relieving properties. Science Daily reported in 2001 on the results of a Georgetown University research study stating that the germ-killing properties of oregano oil were found as effective as most antibiotics -- including vancomycin -- for treatment of antibiotic-resistant superbugs such as E. coli, Salmonella, MRSA and flesh-eating bacteria.
Tea tree oil is a potent antibacterial, essential oil that has been shown effective in killing antibiotic-resistant MRSA on the skin. Therapeutic-grade tea tree oil must be used undiluted for this purpose. The highest quality oils are very mild, making it an excellent treatment even on open wounds.
Olive leaf extract has been used for centuries to fight bacterial infections and is currently being used to treat MRSA infections in some European hospitals. It contains an active compound that provides immune system support at the same time as it fights antibiotic-resistant infections.
