Can garlic stop Godzilla?
Godzilla, as you know is this monster. An unstoppable monster that rips up whole cities.
Bombs, bullets and even missiles just bounce off his back like raindrops.
So what if you ran into a real-life Godzilla?
A Godzilla called MRSA
MRSA stands for Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, which is a dangerous bacteria that has exploded from 127,000 cases in 1999 to 278,000 in 2005. According to the CDC, this deadly threat was responsible for more deaths in the US than AIDS in 2005. Spreading across the world, MRSA is now found in 38 states, Canada, and 9 European Union Countries.
So will garlic help?
MRSA mutates quickly
A new variant of MRSA called MDR has been recently identified in the Jan 15th 2008 physicians journal called the Annals of Internal Medicine. Standing for multidrug resistant, MDR is the newest MRSA-zilla monster to be unleashed. Cases of this newest monster have been found in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Boston.
This strain has also shown the ability to resist almost every antibiotic. Without antibiotics, there are not many drugs that will protect you.
Will garlic save you from this monster?
MRSA-zilla on a rampage
MDR is a highly virualent strain is reported to produce rapidly spreading skin infections where hours can make a difference. It can also penetrate deeper into your bloodstream, bones, and joints. The lungs and heart are also at risk.
When doctors try ineffective antibiotics first, it is like trying to stop Godzilla with a squirt gun. This delay can mean the difference between life and death.
Who is most at risk?
People who are at the greatest risk are athletes, children, military personnel, and people with weakened immune systems. Health care professionals, teachers, and sports trainers are also at risk when they come into contract with if from their patients, students, and clients.
MRSA is in your community
There are multiple strains: a strain found in hospital patients especially from post-surgical infections called HA-MRSA and a community strain CA-MRSA. MDR is the newest variant of the CA-MRSA strain called USA-300.
A Poolesville County high school student gets MRSA from infected football equipment. A Montgomery County school teacher in Maryland dies because of it. Paramedics and firefighters in DC have contracted it. A grand mother is transferred out of Frederick Memorial Hospital because doctors can’t treat it.
You can’t always see it coming
People who are perfectly healthy and do not show any symptoms have been found to be carriers of these strains of MRSA. According to the CDC, these bugs can be carried by a person for weeks or years without any signs or symptoms.
Doing all the right things may not be enough
You know all the right things to do to not get sick: wash your hands and cover up any open wounds until they heal. You also need to keep your immune system strong by eating well, getting enough rest, and exercising. However, MRSA infections are growing among people who have not been in a hospital in over a year.
You need more than medications
Most people like you feel scared when you realize that medications may not protect you from these quickly mutating MRSA-zilla monsters. When you are still sick after multiple courses of antibiotics, where can you find a more powerful defense against these mutant MRSA drug resistant strains?
Is garlic the answer?
Herbal defenses for your immune system
In the 2000 summer/fall issue of the American Journal of Chinese Medicine is an article on an effective treatment for five patients had active MRSA in a Japanese hospital. Multiple courses of different antibiotics, including the more powerful intravenous ones were not able to clear the MRSA infection. Click here to see the entire article.
Also trained in Chinese herbal medicine, their doctors gave each patient an herbal formula called Bu Zhong Yi Qi Tang which translates to “Ginseng and Astragalus Combination.” Antibiotic drugs were discontinued at this time.
Within 16 to 39 days, all of these patients tested MRSA-negative. No side effects were reported as a result of receiving the herbs.
These herbs have antibacterial and antiviral properties
This herbal formula has been shown to produce an increase in the activity of your immune system killer cells. One of the key herbs in this formula, called Astragalus, is known for it's antibacterial and antiviral properties. Astragalus works in combination with the other seven herbs in the formula to stimulate your immune system while helping to protect you from dangerous infections.
Patients recovered from other symptoms related to MRSA
The five patients in this study recovered from a variety of different symptoms related to their MRSA infection. These include: fever, pneumonia, open wounds or sores that wouldn’t heal, difficulty breathing, lung congestion, abnormal breathing sounds, and chest pains.
How herbs can help you against MRSA
If you have contracted MRSA, I highly recommend consulting with a trained Chinese herbalist to receive a customized herb formula to address and heal your specific symptoms. Depending upon your condition, you may receive additional herbs that strengthen your immune system, have greater antibacterial and antiviral properties, and help specific organs to heal.
Herbs can also be used as preventative medicine also
These herbs can also be taken as a preventative measure to strengthen your immune system. If you tend to get sick more often, then your immune system needs additional support.
Having strong defenses prevents you from being overrun
By knowing what you can do now to strengthen yourself against these MRSA-zilla mutants, you will have a much better chance of stopping it before it has a chance to go deeper into your body.
Garlic helps too
In addition to the Chinese herb Astragalus, Dr. Andrew Weil recommends taking several pieces of raw garlic which is the Chinese herb called da' suan. Click here to see Dr. Weil's newsletter article. If you are feeling the first signs of an infection, swallowing four to five toes of minced garlic with food can boost your immune system.
Continue doing all the right things like washing your hands frequently, keep you cuts and scrapes covered until they heal, and avoid contact with people’s bandages or wounds.
Strengthen yourself against MRSA-zilla
If you tend to get sick easily, require multiple rounds of antibiotics to recover from an infection, or work with people who are at risk, you would greatly benefit from strengthening your immune system with Chinese herbs. If MRSA-zilla ever strikes, your immune system will have a much better chance of protecting you against this mutating monster.
You cannot rely on antibiotics alone to protect you.
By adding Chinese herbs, you will have a much stronger defense against
If you haven't done so already: (That's a clue!)
