Staph and MRSA infections often recur over and over again and antibiotics do nothing to stop this recurring cycle. Even natural remedies, no matter how potent, are usually insufficient by themselves to stop MRSA and keep it from recurring too. The truth is, most people need a systematic method to get rid of MRSA and Staph for good.
I regularly get emails from my customers, and I recently got some wonderful feedback about an MRSA success story. This one in particular really stands out. Why is that?
Because Eileen’s been MRSA-free for over 3 years now.
While there are many alternatives to antibiotics for MRSA treatment, few are as safe, effective and easy to use as herbal blends. But you won’t find blends like this in the spice bottles on the shelves of your grocery store. These are medicinal grade botanical extracts grown and blended under stringent quality standards for specific support with infections.
Are Herbal Remedies Safe?
Herbal remedies for MRSA and Staph have a long history of use, many dating back thousands of years.
Most of the common herbs used for MRSA treatment support have a long history of safe use in humans. These so-called “alternative” and MRSA natural remedies are actually some of the oldest remedies on earth, some of which have been used for thousands of years. By comparison, antibiotic drugs have only been around for several decades and are arguably untried and unproven from a long-term perspective.
For example, garlic has been used for infections for at least 5,000 years and has been the subject of over 2,000 studies. Olive Leaf was used in ancient Egypt for preservation and in the 1800’s it was used with success against malaria. Tea tree oil, oregano oil and other botanical products have been used against infections for thousands of years and continue to be prescribed by medical doctors in France to this day.
One of the best things about herbal remedies is fewer side effects. While herbal remedies can be powerful and fast acting, they are also well balanced and evolutionarily “keyed” to the human body. In contrast, antibiotics have a long list of often serious side effects that can be more challenging to deal with than the infection itself.
One of the cruelest things about MRSA is it leaves your body more vulnerable to other types of infections later. These so-called secondary infections can be bacterial like C. difficile (or “C. diff”). But yeast, candida and fungal infections are also common after struggling with Staph or MRSA.
Yeast and fungal infections can be mild to severe and may appear as: toe nail fungus, thrush in the mouth, some skin infections, vaginitis and systemic or internal infections.
Manuka honey and MRSA Staph biofilms
Honey has been used for thousands of years as a natural remedy for many ailments. Manuka honey is such a great remedy because it’s safe, inexpensive and easy to use. It also has a wide range of different uses with virtually no side effects. And now scientific research is revealing how Manuka honey can help control recurring Staph & MRSA infections related to biofilms.
Nose Staph infections
Staph and MRSA bacteria like warm, moist environments and commonly live in the nose
A favorite place for Staph and MRSA bacteria to live and grow is in your nose. Bacteria like Staph love moist and warm places like the nose, upper respiratory system, groin and arm pits. Staph can live in your nose and not cause a nose infection, however many people get sores and infections in their nose.
For kids, the nose can get a lot of “finger traffic” which can spread Staph bacteria around to other surfaces they touch. Because Staph aureus (the bacteria responsible for MRSA) live in the nose of about 30% of all people, it’s why Staph nose infections are one of the most common types of Staph infections.
Many doctors are stepping up to the plate and taking real steps to control MRSA, superbugs and Staph. It’s good to hear about doctors and hospitals that monitor and curb antibiotics use, saving these drugs for when they’re most needed. And some doctors are starting to see the value of natural treatments and give support to their patients who use alternative methods.
There are over 300 species of tea tree.
Tea tree oil has been getting some attention lately as a natural remedy for relief of MRSA and Staph, and for good reason. Tea tree oil is one of the strongest antibacterial essential oils, yet it is very mild and safe and can be used in a variety of ways. Of the studies performed on Tea Tree against Staph and MRSA, it has been shown to be effective at removing these bacteria from the skin.
