MRSA Treatment When Antibiotics Fail

MRSA treatment

By Carrie Perez, of MRSASupportGroup

The horse has literally left the barn where superbugs are concerned.  These nasty, life threatening little critters are popping up in schools, gyms, and other places where crowds of people congregate and no longer confined only to hospitals, nursing homes or skid row as once believed.

Today, if you have a skin infection, most conventional doctors will just assume it’s a mutated superbug like Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, better known by its acronym MRSA, and give you a strong antibiotic. Nonconventional MRSA treatment is not even considered.

That’s right, no testing, just an immediate script for a strong antibiotic with resistance to first line antibiotics assumed from the get go.

In 2010 alone, MRSA killed 19,000 people, sent 7 million people to the ER, and cost $8 billion in medical costs, according to the Union of Concerned Scientists.

Let’s take a moment to understand why superbugs like MRSA exist and, even better, make a game plan on how to deal with them particularly in the scary situation when antibiotics fail you or your child.

How to Make Raw Apple Cider Vinegar

raw apple cider vinegar

It’s apple season in many parts of North America which will continue through the Fall.  Time to take advantage of the seasonal bounty and make some raw apple cider vinegar! If you don’t have locally grown apples available in your community, a bag of organic apples from the healthfood store or veggie co-op will work just fine.

Unpasteurized, or raw apple cider vinegar is expensive, so making your own is very thrifty.  A typical quart of organic, raw apple cider vinegar will run you just under $5 at most healthfood stores.  You can make a whole gallon, four times that amount, yourself for about the same price or even less if you use apple scraps that you were going to throw out or compost anyway.

Homeopathic Treatment for Cavities

homeopathic treatment for cavities

By Joette Calabrese, Classical Homeopath, HMC, CCH, RSHom

Editor’s Note:  Prevention and cure of cavities is based on diet as discovered, researched, and documented by Dr. Weston A. Price, DDS. In certain instances, homeopathic treatment can provide valuable assistance to the healing journey but cannot be viewed as a substitute for a nourishing, Traditional Diet.

The quality of the teeth represents the status of the bone structure of the body. Therefore it’s important that the teeth be sound. If they are, the bones will be sound, too. Sometimes, parents are concerned when their child’s teeth show frequent and large cavities in spite of a decent diet. This is rare when children are raised on raw milk, but it can occur in children who have certain predisposing genetics.

In this case, deep acting constitutional remedies would be in order; however, if the caries are not of a particularly worrisome level, much can be done to remedy the problem with homeopathic treatment at home.

Tart Cherry Juice for What Ails You

by Sarah TheHealthyHomeEconomist August 24, 2014

glass of tart cherry juice Could tart cherry juice be a helpful nutritional remedy to resolve some of your health challenges, improve your level of fitness and even help you sleep better? Read on to see how it helped my friend of many years, Della Powell, mother of 4 and a Tactical Athlete and Crossfit Kettleball Certified Instructor.

Della’s Story:  Last fall I decided to transition from exercising for general fitness into training as a professional athlete. Kettlebell is a Russian sport that requires a feat of strength as well as endurance. Actually, after seeing the training schedule, it took me three months to get the nerve to begin.

I soon found training at age 50 was no easy task. In fact, the training was crushing me.

I had to reduce my workouts by 2/3 and it soon became clear that I was in need of nutrient dense foods to come to the rescue. Specifically, I needed to increase my flexibility, protect my joints, and recover faster from intense training.
