MRSA or methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus is a bacterial skin infection. The bacteria that cause MRSA are indestructible by antibiotics. The MRSA infection occurs around open wounds, cuts, sores and bites. Red painful blisters erupt on the skin causing a lot of pain. Sometimes the blisters swell and ooze fluids.
It mainly affects people who have a weak immune system. But now, even healthy people are liable to get this infection. People spending a lot of time together in groups such as schools, dormitories and colleges are at a greater risk of contracting this infection.
This disease is contagious and can be transmitted by direct contact with the infected skin or by using the infected persons clothing and other items. This is a much dreaded disease because it is resistant to almost all antibiotics. However, extensive research and studies have brought to light some very effective remedies.
This honey comes from Australia and New Zealand and its remarkable results have been widely published. This honey seems to destroy the protein present in the cell walls of the bacteria.
When applied to an oozing blister, the honey releases hydrogen peroxide and the sugar content draws out the infection. Smear the honey directly on the infection and cover with the place with a bandage. Positive results will be apparent in a short time.
Olive leaf extract is a natural antibiotic and has been successfully used in the treatment of MRSA. Research has proved that olive leaves contain effective and active compounds called elenol acid and calcium elenolate which prevent and restrict the growth of all kinds of bacteria, virus and fungi. Rub olive leaf extract all over the boils and the affected area three times a day.
Neem oil has antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral and antibiotic properties. It destroys and kills all kinds of microbes and microorganisms. Recent studies have found that a substance called Azadirachtin found in large amounts in neem oil is very powerful in paralyzing the bacteria and preventing it from spreading.
Apply neem oil to all the affected areas. Rub gently so that the oil penetrates into the skin. When the oil penetrates into the skin and its surrounding tissues, the substance Azadirachtin kills all the MRSA bacteria.
Tea tree oil is a wonderful natural remedy for MRSA. It has many valuable medicinal qualities and is used for a wide number of diseases and ailments. Its antiviral, antimicrobial and antiseptic properties successfully annihilate the bacteria and effect a cure. Apply small amounts of tea tree oil on the infection three times daily.
Turmeric has been proven very beneficial in the treatment of MRSA. Its antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties not only destroy the bacteria and relieve the symptoms but it also brings about a complete recovery.
Make a paste of turmeric powder and apply on the boils and infection. Heat a folded cloth and tie it over the paste. Swallow one teaspoon of turmeric powder with water every night before going to bed.
