My father is in a VA care facility and is a MRSA carrier. So I started researching this and other antibiotic/antiviral diseases. I bought both of
Stephen Buhner's Books - "Herbal Antibiotics" and Herbal Antivirals". Good stuff but not light reading. Very science based, slow going to read but
Manuka Honey UMF16+ rating if at all possible. Try the health food stores. I ordered mine from New Zealand. Shipping cost as much as the product. I
also got a colloidial silver and manuka honey cream. You should be able to google it and order it if you can’t find it locally. Or ask a health
store to order it as maybe they will order more and you won’t be killed with International shipping costs.
You can try regular honey also – both eating it and putting it on a boil. Make sure it is organic RAW honey. You will need to go to a health food
store or Trader Joes as the honey in most stores is pasteurized and most of the healthy ingredients are killed.
The top herbal antibiotic Buhner suggests is “Cryptolepis tincture”. Once again google it as you won’t find it on a shelf!! Only a few places
make it. Other herbs he suggests are: sida, alchornea, bidens, the berberines ( could be Oregon Grape Root, Junipero and others that contain
berberine). Usnea, ginger, ashwagandha, red root, and Artemisia annua.
Most of these are in tincture form – that means the herb is steeped in alcohol for a few weeks to extract the active ingredients.
You will of course need to talk to your doctor about these suggestions. As a very new member not sure if I can receive private messages yet or not.
But I check in pretty often so if I can help with more detailed info – let me know!
Because of the situation with my Dad am planning on making a MRSA tincture. (I make my own tinctures already). But have not gotten there yet - time
Best of luck!
