To further that example, I have never broken out in staph -- even though I sleep with him, touch the sores with my fingers, etc etc etc. Nor has anyone in our house, including our six year old, who never washes his hands. In my opinion, it is more than a simple bacteria issue.

Here's the link to the water that helped:
http://www.mrsa30day.com/FAQ.shtml

Like I said, it sounds like a pitch (I was very suspicious at first), but it seems to work.
 

Iam really interested in that water and was wondering how long you used it for??

THe site is a bit overwhelming and I'm not sure which one to get , but Iwould like to try it for my 2 yr old ds.

He had staph diaper rash last year which went away great with manuka honey and also we used clay and prid and eo and he drinks kefir and takes cell salts but I really think the manuka did the job.  He recently got what looks like 2 little pimples in the diaper area and it looks like the staph ones, I have been using manuka, one is gone and the other is taking it's sweet time.....

I am starting to think about this internal stuff and it is making sense to  me, I have also never got it and we co-sleep, bathe together etc;

Iam just lazy right now to read through the whole thing and want to hear how you used it and your thoughts,  :) thanks

my ds had staph and i think it too started with his immune system. it was cured by 2 different types of herbal remedies, made by and herbalis/tcm doc. it was a miracle no doubt to cure it without any kind of antibiotics. i notice when he is not feeling well or starts to get way over tired he gets the bumps on his face similar to how the staph started. i believe he might be a carrier but when his immune system is over loaded (sick, teething, stress) he is more prone to the infection. (his was on his cheek, and came out of nowhere, and no one else got it)

To all those who have used the Mankua honey on mrsa I need to know who you bought from. I am finding it very hard to tell what site is real and what has something of a fake item. My 3 1/2 yr old last year had mrsa reoccure about 5-6 times and Now we are on the 1st breakout of mrsa in a month and change. I am supposed to take him to Peds Dr. today to see if he needs meds but I am really worried and really tired. Supposedly my child has eczema and recently had a rash that stemmed from it. I am using Dove soap for him. Showers only no baths as the Dr specified this would help keep the spreading down and I am giving him not one but 2 steriod type meds (1 for the rash & 1 for the rest of him) to heal his skin. So I really don't want hime on 20 different medical oral and topicals.

 

Can anyone help give me the info to the mankua sites they have used so I can feel better about where I am going to be buying the honey from..? Thank you!

I just ordered mine from Amazon.com, but I've also seen it at my local health food store (maybe Whole Foods carries it as well?).  I would also recommend trying tea tree oil and eating raw garlic (minced with regular honey on toast is yummy!).

 

Good luck!

I posted a while back about my daughter and her round with MRSA, which was completely cleared by antibiotics, even though she was allergic to them and had to stop the course half way through.

 

Now, two years later i have it. I had one boil that is now healing but several satellite sores that are still red, but appear to be healing. i feel like i'm on the mend except for soreness throughout my body, which really concerns me because i don't know if it is indicative of a serious infection despite the sores healing.

 

I would go on the abx except that i am nursing and i need to take dicloxacillin, which isn't safe for nursing. My daughter is 13 months old and nowhere near being ready to wean. It would break my heart to have to cut her off suddenly, without even beginning the weaning process.

 

I am wondering if anyone knows of alternative abx that would sub and is safe. I asked the doctor but don't really believe he gave an alternative much thought since he scolded me for still nursing at 13 months. 

 

I ordered the pHenomenal water and will update when i receive it. if anyone is interested, i have seen healing by using the following methods:

drinking tumeric with coconut oil (tumeric is a blood purifier and coconut oil helps to "deliver" the benefits to the body - a carrier oil); i started this after the first boil had gotten big and opened. the satellite sores appear to have dissipated before ever reaching the severity of the first one. (recommended dosage: 1 tsp. 3 times a day in hot water)

 

paste of baking soda and chopped, fresh raw garlic on sores, covered by saran wrap and then hot compresses on that for about 30 minutes a day. the result of this, combined with the tumeric ( i think) is that my satellite sores have skipped the yucky middle stage and are now starting to scab and heal.

 

manuka honey on open wound. a note about this and i could be wrong, but i think manuka is beneficial only when it can get inside the wound. I put manuka on the whole lot and by that evening, the boil that was open and draining was healing but the sores that were in the beginning stages just looked more inflamed and were painful. that's when i stopped manuka on everything that was closed, started the poultices and compresses and saw improvement. I will start manuka on these in a few days.

 

I have also been taking probiotics and have found my craving for sugar and white flours is gone, which is a blessing since these things just make MRSA worse...

Seems that you are trying the right things, such as garlic-baking soda compress and turmeric.  I've had MRSA infections for several years now and have read volumes of books, tried every remedy including most abx.  I can't say I'm totally cured but it's definitely under control now.  The most effective treatments seem to be these:

 

1. drink high pH water, ph=10.5 (hydrate with 1 liter, 2-3 times daily, at least 90 minutes after eating and at least 30 minutes before eating so that your digestive system can "re acidify".  (btw, phenomenal water is phenomenally expensive for what it is... just get some "cal" from a mexican market, also known as calcium-hydroxide or hydrated lime, food grade of course) mix 1/8" tsp of "cal" into 1 gallon of filtered or distilled water- must be very pure water.  it will be cloudy but is more effective than phenomenal and cost about a penny for a gallon

2. avoid sugar.  reduce fruit and fruit juice intake.  avoid processed foods. 

3. eat lots of fresh, raw greens and other vegetables.  drink green juice (i.e. kale, celery, garlic...)

4. use raw garlic externally and eat as much as you can stand

5. do not consume manuka honey, it's ok for external application but not very effective for boils

6. consume pro-biotics, 3x daily.  wide spectrum, fresh, food based

7. relaxation, rest, positive attitude. 

 

BTW, if you are taking anti-biotics, stop as soon as possible.  They will not help in the long term and will actually create more recurrence.  The latest theories suggest that the immune system relies on healthy bacteria in the "gut" so there's no point in attacking your own immune system with antibiotics.
