Most people know how stress makes them feel, but few people realize the hidden effects it has on the immune system.
When I struggled with recurring Staph infections, they would usually strike right after an episode of stress. To this day, every time I get stressed I easily can catch a cold or some other bug.
Science has proven the strong link between stress and other negative emotions and your immune system. If you’ve been struggling with Staph or MRSA with poor results, then stress could be a key factor that’s stalling your recovery. Continue reading →
It’s that season again. No, not the holiday season – I mean the cold, flu and nasty bug season.
Fall and winter is the time when low vitamin D levels, kids going back to school and lots of holiday travel create the perfect storm for seasonal bugs to flourish and spread. And the risk is not just limited to the common cold and flu viruses. As the number of people traveling and shopping increase, so does the risk of catching community infections like MRSA, Strep, E. coli, norovirus and other germs.

Before I tell you about my own narrow miss, here’s a few travel tips that will help you stay safe. This time of year with people on the go and traveling for the holidays, there’s some high-risk surfaces and objects you’ll want to be aware of. Continue reading →
Staph and MRSA bacteria have been found in meat products and on livestock farms, where they pose a direct infection threat to anyone handling or eating contaminated meat. But there’s a another infection threat found in most meat that makes Staph and MRSA harder to treat. This indirect threat has nothing to do with Staph or MRSA bacteria but rather with the drugs fed to livestock to make them grow faster. Continue reading →
A 17 year old girl may have discovered a bacteria-proof fabric that resists contamination with MRSA.

For most people who get infected with MRSA or a Staph infection, the first question on their mind is “what exactly am I dealing with?” Many people have never even heard of these infections before they become infected.
The first step to getting rid of a stubborn bacterial infection is to be clear about what’s causing the infection, what the risks are and your best options moving forward to get better. Continue reading →
Yesterday a young man emailed a question about diet and recurring Staph infections. His first infection was 8 months ago. Fortunately, the antibiotics he took stopped his infection. He also began to eat better too: more foods that support the immune system, less foods that weaken it. But lately, he’s been eating the same old diet again, including cola, lots of red meat, alcohol and hardly any fruits or vegetables. In other words, he slipped back into the Standard American Diet (S.A.D.), which really is not helpful when it comes to recurring infections. Continue reading →
Everyone goes out into public each day. You may drop off your kids at school, go to work, shop for groceries. Your kids may be involved in sports activities or dancing.
