Garlic - A Natural MRSA Treatment

You may not be aware about this, but you likely have a very powerful ally against MRSA or Staph hiding in your kitchen. Garlic is not just another herb when it comes to using it for infections. Garlic has been scientifically proven to be a powerful natural antibiotic, antiviral and antifungal agent. Garlic has also been shown to kill highly resistant MRSA infections in human clinical studies.

Garlic was used by the ancient Egyptians, Greeks, Romans and Chinese to treat all types of infections, its use dating back over 5,000 years. As recently as World War II, garlic saved thousands of lives by protecting open wounds from getting infected. Even Louis Pasteur studied the strong antibacterial properties of garlic in 1858.

I think anytime we can find natural alternatives to antibiotics, we are doing ourselves and everyone else a favor. The more we all use antibiotics, the more we will have resistant superbug infections in our world. If you infection is not severe or critical, I believe you should use alternatives first to get your infection under control.

My 3 year old daughter had MRSA 5 times in 2008 (so far none in 2009...fingers crossed). I think this is very interesting about garlic. Before going out to buy garlic capsules from the organic market, can you confirm that this would be the right thing to buy? It seems as though it would be good to give her a supplement every day. Do you have any comments on doing this with a 3 year old? Thanks so much.
