MRSA is Not Herb Resistant

November 29, 2007

Yes, we now have to worry about superbugs: germs that are so advanced, they are resistant to our antibiotics. But they are resistant to our antibiotics because we overuse them. We use antibiotics for everything– bacteria, viruses, cleaning our hands and bodies, and cleaning our houses. If a germ comes in contact with an antibiotic but does not die, it learns from the experience and passes the information to other germs. Even if a germ is killed, when another bacteria comes in contact with the dead germ, it can still acquire the dead germ’s information about the antibiotic to avoid itself from becoming killed.

The media hype has failed to mention that these germs can be battled with herbs. A research team in 2003 found that Pau d’Arco (also calledTabebuia impetiginosa, Tabebuia avellanedae, Tabebuia heptaphylla) kills MRSA. View the abstract at PubMed.

Why would this information not be more widespread? Is it possible that the public is not informed about these treatments because they are cheap and provide no source of income for the drug companies which support our government?

Drug companies should be smarter about natural treatments and create more pharmaceutical grade alternative medicines, like what has been done with garlic (for cardiovascular diseases) and fish oil (for mood disorders, respiratory health, and arthritis).

The rest of this post is from an article I wrote published at NewsTarget.com:

…Pau D’Arco not only treats drug resistant Staph, it guards against other infections and health problems, including viruses, parasites, and possibly cancer. Antibiotics however, do not work against viruses and cancer. Instead, antibiotics “may help fungi to proliferate within the human body”, and they kill all types of bacteria, including the beneficial bacteria which aid in healthy digestion. A lack of beneficial bacteria has been linked with autism and bowel disorders.

Antibiotic use in children has been correlated with asthma and allergies, and their use can “alter the development of a child’s immune system.” The same study also found that children were less likely to develop these problems if they were exposed to a dog before the age of 1.

So germ exposure can be a good thing, and all this exposure to antibiotics is actually making us weaker and making the harmful bacteria stronger! They are not only over prescribed by doctors, but they are used in agriculture and fed to livestock. So if you are not choosing organic food, you may be taking antibiotics!

Antibacterial soaps and sanitizers create the same problem: stronger, more immune bacteria. Natural soaps wash away dirt and germs from the body, but they don’t help create superbugs. In addition to creating superbugs and lowering our immunity, NewsTarget recently reported that many antibacterial soaps also contain the toxic chemical triclosan which can promote cancer. Antibacterial soaps could also change your hormones.

So before resorting to antibiotics and chemical antibacterials, first try alternatives such as Pau D’Arco, garlic, grapefruit seed extract, honey, colloidal silver, lemon, and tee tree oil. There are many others, and most natural antibiotic alternatives are safe for everyday, preventative use, unlike antibiotics.

    Great information! I use to take allergy shots growing up and had to take antibiotics. I was one sick kid. The only good that came out of my experience was choosing to study herbal medicine.

    I have used garlic and habanero mixed together to succesfully heal an infection in the back of my throat. There is no doubt in my mind about how effective certain herbs are…especially in raw organic form. I am healthier today and it is not because of antibiotic use, but because of eatting more raw fruits and vegetables. One of the most powerful herbs I use is habanero peppers. It is superhot and it gets the job done!


  2. I’m also a fan of hot peppers! Cayenne has sped up my metabolism and improved my digestion and circulation.

    Your website is a great resource; I’ll continue to check it for info. Thanks for your comment!

    Thanks for stopping by my site! It really is fantastic that we can find so much information on the net and share it with others.

    Good health is a true blessing…

    I’m so glad I found this article. My husband had MRSA recently and through investigation (because of a lack of any MD coming into his hospital room to tell us anything about it), it seems to be recurrent in some people. It’s been three weeks now and he’s still cold, tired and with headache. Not good since he just started a new job. I want to knock this stuff out since I’m also at risk and I have CFS.

    Thanks for this article!


  5. I’m so glad you found this info!

    Pau d’arco has so many benefits; you will have to let me know how it works for both of you. Take care and good luck!

    Mans claims colloidal silver cured his MRSA infection…

    http://www.northantset.co.uk/675/Man39s-MRSA-cure-claims.941888.jp

    An elderly man who lived with a potentially lethal infection for two years claims he has cleared himself of the illness with colloidal silver.

    David Sharman, 82, was infected with superbug MRSA in June, 2001, but believes determination and a regular dose of colloidal silver has helped him beat the infection.

    He said: “There are so many terrible stories about MRSA in the news, but people seem to just talk about it and are not doing anything.

    “I started to use colloidal silver and, after almost two years living with the infection and having regular check-ups, I was told I was clear.”

    Mr Sharman, of Exmouth Avenue, Corby, claims he contracted MRSA after a series of hip operations at Kettering General Hospital during 2001.

    He said: “The wound on my hip became infected and the hospital informed me that I had MRSA before I was discharged for rehabilitation.

    “I was determined to help myself and began using colloidal silver directly on my wound daily.”

    Colloidal silver is a liquid commonly used before the 1930s as an antibiotic treatment and is available at health food shops.
    It works by attaching itself to a vital enzyme found in bacteria and disabling the offending pathogen, preventing it from reproducing.

    Mr Sharman, who has three children Richard, 22, William, 20, and Sarah, 18, with wife Denise, said: “I could feel myself slowly getting better and the day I got the all-clear, just before Christmas 2003, was an extremely happy day for the whole family.

    “Getting MRSA doesn’t have to mean it is the end of the road and I really believe colloidal silver helped me.”

    Dr Richard Slack is a microbiologist based in Nottingham who works in infection control.

    He said: “The silver is quite a good antibiotic used in burns units because it does kill MRSA and other bacteria that cause wound infections.

    “There is absolutely a possibility that this has been beneficial to Mr Sharman.”

    My Granddaughter 2 years old contacted Mersa
    was put on highly powerful antibiotics. She was hospitalized for over a week and then put on antibiotics at home for 14 more days. She became very weak from this. Six months later she was still having complications such as severe digestive problems. She became lethargic and started stuttering. My daughter then took her to a naturopath doctor. With-in a week she was back to herself. She was put on probiotics and prune juice and began eating a lot of garlic and other natural herbs.
