Abuse of antibiotics seems to be pushing us toward an allopathic health apocalypse, with drug-resistant strains of bacteria developing that are making formerly conquered illnesses like tuberculosis a renewed threat to our health. Among the best known of these worrisome bacterial strains is MRSA – methicillin-resistant-staphylococcus aureus – an antibiotic-resistant family of the relatively common staph infection. This more dangerous form of staph is making its way around hospitals and high school locker rooms, requiring new more stringent cleaning and hygiene routines for an infection that causes boils and other serious health consequences, but against which doctors have few treatment options.
Natural Antibiotics for Dogs and Other Pets
It had been thought that only humans were afflicted with MRSA bacterial infections, however, vets began to see MRSA in dogs, cats, horses, and other familiar animals in the 70s. As you can see in the article excerpted below, your pet may harbor drug-resistant staph and pass it back to the human members of your family. In order to treat both you and your pets, Earth Clinic Community members find manuka honey, garlic, and colloidal silver effective against MRSA boils, cysts, and internal infections. Still, the Indian spice turmeric is hands down the favorite home remedy to kill MRSA – a natural antibiotic as well as being an excellent general health aid.
When MRSA won’t wane, check the family pet
“Suspicions about that calico on the couch are being raised this week in the New England Journal of Medicine. German scientists reported that a woman endured a series of nasty abscesses caused by methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, known as MRSA, until a veterinarian screened — and treated — the family cat.
It’s not an isolated case, or critter, according to researchers in the U.S. and Canada who are studying the connection between pets, people and this dangerous, drug-resistant bug linked to more than 94,000 infections and nearly 19,000 deaths in the U.S. in 2005...”
