MRSA Rates Underestimated

Based upon what I've been hearing from many people with MRSA, I do believe MRSA rates are greatly underestimated. Many people contact me after receiving MRSA in a hospital, and they had no idea they were at risk until they found out they had MRSA. Sadly, many hospitals are rampant with MRSA. Of course, you can also get community acquired MRSA (CA-MRSA)from others in the community who have MRSA. CA-MRSA is more virulent than hospital acquired MRSA.

In a recent article on "Cleanlink", they report the following. According to the World of Building Service Contracting, a survey of infection prevention and control professionals conducted by The Association of Professionals in Infection Control (APIC) revealed that MRSA rates are eight times higher than previously estimated. Today, MRSA accounts for over 60 percent of Staphylococcus aureus infections, a staggering increase over the two percent of all Staphylococcus aureus infections reported in 1972. In addition, the study found the death rate from MRSA infections is more than 2.5 times higher than non-MRSA infections.

Groundbreaking New Study Finds Household Cleaners & Air Fresheners Can Pose Serious Health Risks

Prevention is a big key when it comes to managing MRSA in our homes and offices. One way we can help prevent MRSA is through good hygiene and keeping our environments clean.

Yet, many cleaners actually pose significant health risks. It's best to clean your house with natural cleaners to help avoid these toxins. Be sure to avoid common cleaners with orange, lemon or pine.

Bee Propolis: Nature's Healing Balm With Immune Boosting Properties

As we discuss in our resources on our Staph and MRSA website, one main reason people get MRSA is that their immune system is not functioning at it's best level. So, when working with MRSA, you want to boost the performance of your immune system. One great way we talk about is using natural products to do so.

Here's another article on Bee Propolis - a natural immune booster.

MRSA Superbug Invades Public Schools as Conventional Medicine Ignores Natural Cures

Another great article on MRSA by "Health Ranger" Mike Adams.

As I have talked about on my Staph infection website, this article discusses how MRSA (caused by the Staph aureus bacteria) already has many natural and effective treatments, it's just that pharmaceutical companies can't make money on natural medicines. Therefore, this information is kept a "secret" and it takes a lot of time for anyone to figure out the answers.

The End of Antibiotics

A new article by NaturalNews was recently posted on the end of the Antibiotic Era.

Eventually antibiotics are going to be seen as one of the worst things to ever come out of pharmaceutical science because in the end, they have made us only weaker in the face of ever increasingly strong super bugs that are resistant to all the antibiotics doctors have at their disposal.

Diseases include measles, scarlet fever, tuberculosis, typhoid fever, pneumonia, influenza, whooping cough, diphtheria and polio. All were in decline for several decades before the introduction of antibiotics or vaccines - Dr. Lawrence Wilson."

Let's get back to remembering the forgotten cures for bacterial diseases like MRSA. These cures were very successful before the advent of antibiotics. Purchase our ebook on the forgotten MRSA and Staph Infection Treatments, by going to

French Volcanic Clay Kills Antibiotic-Resistant MRSA Superbug

A new article out on Natural (the Health Ranger) shows another natural product (not an antibiotic) that has been shown to kill MRSA.

I've heard of some people being told to "go roll around in the dirt" to get rid of their MRSA, and I've heard some reports of that working. I believe the effect was in "normalizing" their resident bacteria living on their skin. Just like in our digestive system, bacteria live in balance. Put more of the "good" guys in, and that will support your body being in balance.

In light of the last article posted on many soil bacteria eating antibiotics for breakfast, if you do work or play in the dirt and want to avoid more antibiotic resistant soil bacteria, a) make sure you're not anyway near feedlots areas where livestock are housed as bacteria in your soil will be more antibiotic resistant and b) don't place dirt in your skin infections!

Anyway, check out this article on a certain type of soil that MRSA is susceptible too. Many spas offer similar types of services now-a-days. Could be something worth looking into.

Antibiotic Eating Bacteria and Staph SuperBugs

See the full story at Antibiotic Eating Bacteria and Staph SuperBugs

I recently discovered an article in, a natural health website, discussing how Harvard researchers have found that hundreds of soil microbes literally eat antibiotics, and that they can thrive on antibiotics as their ONLY nutritional source. It turns out these many species of bacteria, some related to current SuperBug bacteria, can exist solely on antibiotics as their only food source.

Should you be worried about this new information?

Will I Get Better If I Have MRSA or Staph?

See the full story at Will I get better if I have MRSA or Staph?

The number one question I hear from people handling MRSA infections is will I get better if I have MRSA? If you look at the MRSA statistics, it's easy to ask that question. The number one challenge people have with MRSA is recurring infections. People’s fears about getting better are well justified. In 2005, more people died from MRSA than from AIDS, and the numbers keep going up every year.

You've probably heard an earful from the news, your friends or your doctor about MRSA. Did you know that research is now showing that some bacteria (like MRSA) can actually go into hiding in your body when antibiotics are present? Read on to learn more about this serious and potentially life-threatening bacterial disease.

So, will I get better if I have MRSA? The answer is YES - IF you learn how to achieve long-term success with your infection. Antibiotics and other common treatments can bring you quick relief from your infection, but they do nothing to help you avoid recurring infections with MRSA in the long-term.

Greens for Immune System Health

See the full story at: Greens for Immune System Health

My husband Les and I have known about pH balance for years and how important it is for our immune system health and preventing infections like MRSA and Staph. One of the biggest ways you can help your body with these infections is by improving your immune system and your pH balance. Unfortunately, the traditional American diet leaves many people in an "acidic" state - one that is prime for infectious bacteria to live in. So, look into eating more alkaline foods to help you boost your immunity and pH.

We’ve been eating a high pH (alkaline) diet for some time now with great results. But just last week, we learned about an exciting new way to get a lot more alkaline foods into our diets that's very simple and actually tastes great.

Most anyone who knows about pH knows that green leafy plants are some of the most alkaline or high pH foods on the planet. And greens are loaded with nutrients and minerals too. The trouble is, there are only so many salads and lettuce wraps that you can eat in a day before you start feeling more like a rabbit than a person.

But for the last few weeks, we’ve been eating a special recipe made with greens and have been pleasantly surprised by how much more energy and vitality we’ve already noticed. The recipe is very simple to prepare, tastes very good and is made with ingredients easy to find at the grocery store. This high pH recipe is one of the best dietary additions we have found to boost immune system health and help prevent infections.

The recipe is how to make yummy and nutritious green smoothies. You’re probably asking the question: how could a green smoothie possibly taste good? We felt the same way until we actually tasted one. But now we actually crave our green shakes and we're addicted to how good they make us feel.

Until a few weeks ago, we hadn’t heard much about greens, other than that they are “good” for you. We knew that greens were alkaline and nutritious, but we’d never heard much about their nutrition, how many we should be eating, or just why greens are so great. What we learned about greens has been nothing short of amazing – and I want to share with you what we discovered in more detail.

See how a simple green shake recipe can boost your immune system and help you prevent re-infections. Click on this link now to learn more: Greens for Immune System Health.

Handling MRSA with Naturopathy

See the full story at: Handling MRSA with Naturopathy

I’m always amazed at how many people take what their doctor tells them as law and never even consider questioning their doctor’s conclusions or recommendations, especially when it comes to handling MRSA infections. It’s as if it would be disrespectful to even consider that their doctor might be wrong. Some people do question their doctor and even get a second opinion if they have a really important medical decision to make. But isn’t everything pretty important when it comes to your health?

Say you visit your family doctor because you think you have an MRSA infection and your doctor tells you “don’t be alarmed, it’s only a spider bite – I’ve seen two others this week that looked just like yours”. You could either submit to his “superior” knowledge and accept his spider bite diagnosis and treatment, or you could respectfully question his diagnosis and either insist on a bacterial culture test or go see another doctor.

Don’t get me wrong, I think doctors are great – most of them have dedicated their lives to helping people. Especially with MRSA and other infections, finding the right doctor can literally change the course of your infection and begin helping you almost overnight. I think most doctors genuinely strive to provide the best possible care that they can, based on what they know and what they think is best.

But what you know and what you think is best is dependant on your own personal experiences, beliefs and judgments, not on what’s really “true” of really “best”. Any of us that are human easily fall into the trap of thinking we know best, or that our way is the only way, including doctors. It takes humility and openness to consider the possibility that there are other options beyond the seemingly vast and all inclusive sphere of our personal knowledge and experience.

It’s refreshing to see more and more people being proactive with their infection and seeking the best information on handling MRSA. I’ve found that one of the best ways to be proactive and to safely explore other MRSA treatment options is with the help of a Naturopathic Doctor (N.D.). These trained medical professionals not only know a wide variety of effective alternative infection treatments, they are generally much more open to a proactive and participatory approach from their patients.
