Another Remedy for MRSA Boils

by Linda

June 2010

When I had MRSA, I thought I had been bitten by a black widow spider. Which was common for our area. When it began to spread I knew something wasn't right. By the time I went to the doctor I had nine boils. The dr. gave me a sulfer drug which only made the 2 smallest ones go away. A lot of research led me to garlic. I placed four med./ large cloves in 6 oz. of water and let that sit for 2 hours. (this water can be kept for 28 days) The water ( shaken first) then went onto a cotton ball and was taped to the boil for 2 hours. (Anything longer and it burned my skin) The wound was then rubbed with Tea Tree oil and neosporin and covered with gauze. (To prevent more spreading) I did this 3 times a day. I also began to drink a broth of beef boullion, fresh garlic, dandelion, oregano, comfrey, white willow and cayenne pepper. (Plus some other spices to make it taste good) After months of pain the cores began to come out and the boils began to heal! In the end I had 14 boils and fought this for 4 months! The last boil that popped up lasted only 1 week! I also treated my nose with a couple drops of tea tree oil in 2 oz. of olive oil. Dip a cotton swab in the mixture then rub the insides of both nostrils. (use a new swab for each) I have not had another outbreak since March 2009! I thank God for that!

I love your herbs! And I have never tasted better Peppermint. I've started mixing teas for friends, and they love your herbs, too. :) My kids (almost 3 and almost 2) caught a cold at church a few weeks ago, and I've been giving them plain peppermint tea to help clear their noses when they get too stuffy. They think it's the best treat, and love it. My daughter especially loves the Sleepy Time Tea with Chamomile flowers. It's become our nightly 'thing' to have a cup of tea and read a bedtime or Bible story. Also, the Nutritional Herbology book has been of great help to me, and since I've started using Red Raspberry in most of my teas, my not-so-fun monthly female cramps have almost disappeared! Thank you so much for offering your herbs at such wonderful prices. I can't find better prices anywhere.

Did You Know?

Daily sprinkling a little Cayenne powder on the toothpaste on your toothbrush can work miracles in fighting and preventing gum disease. That's right! It will also help deal with other oral ailments that plague many folks these days. After reading about this, we just had to try it. There is a warm sensation in your mouth as you brush your teeth, but it soon disappears after rinsing. As always, whenever using Cayenne powder, you should start with very small amounts to allow the body some time to build up a tolerance. The first few times we used it, we sprinkled so little of the powder on the toothpaste that we didn't feel anything. As the days progressed, we increased the amounts slightly until we felt it was warm enough. After using it for a little while, the nice feeling in your mouth is very satisfying. Be warned, however, that you do not want to overdo this one, so start small.
