The Omega Solution: Unleash the Amazing, Scientifically Based Healing Power of Omega-3 & -6 Fatty Acids

Jonathan Goodman ND (See book keywords and concepts)

Unfortunately, people with eczema have a high risk of developing infections from staphylococcus aureus (staph). They also have a higher-than-normal risk of infections from wart or herpes simplex viruses. The reason for this is that one of the underlying causes of eczema is a disorder in the body's immune system. It's common for those with eczema to have lowered T-cell function, which makes diem more susceptible to infection. As with psoriasis, there's still a lot of uncertainty about what causes eczema. Food allergies are thought to be involved.

The Woman's Encyclopedia of Natural Healing

Dr. Gary Null (See book keywords and concepts)

This sudden and serious disease affects persons with severely compromised immune systems, who are poisoned by a strain of bacteria, called staphylococcus aureus, phage group I. This type of staph produces a substance called enterotoxin F, which can overpower and destroy a weak body. Toxic shock syndrome is linked to the introduction of tampons with four new ingredients, in the early 1980s. Before then, tampons were made primarily of cotton. In the 1980s, though, highly absorbent polyester cellulose, carboxymethyl cellulose, polyacrylate rayon, and viscose rayon came into use.

It is used to treat swellings, inflammations with a discharge, boils, ulcers, and staphylococcus infections. The seeds are ground and mixed with water to make a warm doughy mass which is then applied to the affected area as a compress several times a day. The ground seeds may also be boiled with water to make a watery mush which may be used as an ointment. Which method is used is a matter of choice and depends on the patient's condition. Flax-seed may be used in more or less the same way, but the drug from the seeds of Fenugreek is more effective because of the alkaloid and sapogenin component.

Its effects have been demonstrated against staphylococcus, Streptococcus, E. coli, and Mycobacterium tuberculosis, among others.36 Echinacea can be taken internally as a tea or used externally as a poultice or wash on infectious sores. Echinacea has a broad spectrum of beneficial effects on the immune system, and has proven effective in treating infections in general, including colds, flu, upper respiratory infections, and urinary tract and genital infections.37 Stress must be treated as it has a direct impact on immunity.

Power Healing: Use the New Integrated Medicine to Cure Yourself

Leo Galland (See book keywords and concepts)

Infection with staphylococcus (staph) is a major threat in hospitals, because staph grows readily on the skin and has a penchant for entering surgical wounds. In 1944, all Staphylococci were sensitive to penicillin. Resistance developed rapidly and pharmaceutical companies had to work assiduously, developing new forms of penicillin that could stay ahead of staph. Resistance has developed to each one. At the start of 1997, there was only one antibiotic, vancomycin, that is universally effective against all strains of staph.

CONSIDER: Trauma, malposition of specific joint or joints above and below, chronic overuse, acute or chronic infection, calcium deposits secondary to calcium malabsorption, magnesium deficiency, localized trauma, allergies (especially airborne or food), vitamin B12 malabsorption, inflammatory arthritis, gout, rheumatoid arthritis, infective organisms (especially staphylococcus aureus), and, rarely, tuberculosis organisms. SPECIAL NOTES: Most commonly affected joints are shoulder, elbow, and hip, which are often referred to as "frozen" due to the loss of normal range of motion.

101 Things You Don't Know About Science And No One Else Does Either

James Trefil (See book keywords and concepts)

For example, even though there are over a hundred different antibiotics on the market, at least one strain of staphylococcus is now resistant to all but one. Although it is scary to think of diseases like cholera and typhoid fever decimating human populations again, I have to say that I'm not all that worried about this threat. The main reasons we have fallen behind the bacteria at the moment are economic, not scientific. Drug companies simply haven't believed they could make a profit by introducing another new antibiotic.

It is also good for amoebic dysentery and is an effective antibiotic for staphylococcus, streptococcus and bacteria resistant to standard antibiotic drugs. It is an antifungal for the treatment of Candida albicans yeast infections. Many preparations of garlic are useful. It may be juiced and taken directly, or minced and combined with a little sesame or olive oil or honey and taken in teaspoon doses every 2 hours for respiratory conditions. The cloves may be coated in oil and wrapped in muslin for direct insertion into the vagina for vaginitis and leucorrhea, or the anus for pinworms.

The Body Electric: Electromagnetism and the Foundation of Life

Robert Becker, M.D., and Gary Selden (See book keywords and concepts)

We tried silver, platinum, gold, stainless steel, and copper electrodes, using a wide range of currents, on four disparate kinds of bacteria, including staphylococcus aureus, one of the commonest and most troublesome. Soon we were able to explain the earlier inconsistencies: All five metals stopped growth of all the bacteria at both poles, as long as we used high currents. Unfortunately, high currents also produced toxic effects—chemical changes in the medium, gas formation, and corrosion— with all but the silver electrodes.

The only other metal that had any effect was gold; it worked against staphylococcus, but not nearly as well as silver. Of course, the germ-killing action of silver had been known for some time. At the turn of the century, silver foil was considered the best infection-preventive dressing for wounds.

And another impeccable trial, this time from Japan, demonstrated Licorice root to be effective against both an original staphylococcus aureus strain that had already been made resistant to penicillin and streptomycin, and against succeeding drug resistant cultures or generations of that strain (which were continuing to develop ever greater resistance to the standard drugs) (23). Several Russian and English papers have appeared that underscore the anti-inflammatory property of Licorice root (15-19), an effect that is directly related to the herb's corticosteroid-like action.

Staph Infection. staphylococcus is a genus of Gram-positive bacteria. S. pyogenes aureus is the common species causing what we know as staph infection, food poisoning, pneumonia, osteomyelitis, endocarditis, and other infections. Their metabolic behavior is respiratory and fermentative. Ascorbic acid, however, denies them their cellular breathing ability, and reverses the acid sour environment they thrive in. Citrus juices are teeming with plenty of vitamin C. Tonsillitis. This is an acute inflammation or infection of the tonsils.

Staphylococcus aureus strains (which cause blood poisoning, wound infections, and pneumonia) are resistant to penicillin and other similar drugs." • 40% of Pneumococcus strains (which cause pneumonia) are partly or completely resistant to numerous antibiotics in several regions of the U.S. In a recent outbreak of pneumococcal pneumonia in a day-care center, carriers of a penicillin-resistant strain of the bacterium were more likely to have previously received preventive antibiotics for recurrent ear infections.

Staphylococcus, and Clostridium, can harmfully impact, in some cases dangerously, intestinal health. To maintain the balance of the various intestinal flora, practitioners of alternative medicine often recommend using probiotics—the deliberate introduction of live, "friendly" bacteria into the Gl tract through food products, such as yogurt, and special supplements.

The typical organisms that cause pneumonia are Pneumococcus, staphylococcus, Streptococcus, Klebsiella, E. coli, proteus, Pseudomonas, Hemophilus, and fungi. "Patients with bacterial pneumonia, though, are much more likely to have complications such as lung abscesses, pleurisy (inflammation of membrane enfolding the lungs), and the spreading of infection through the bloodstream to other organs," Dr. Sherman says.While antibiotics have greatly reduced fatality rates for pneumonia patients, their use has expanded the range of pathogens responsible for the disease, Dr. Sherman adds.

Approximately 1% to 10% of the intestinal population is comprised of facultative anaerobes, including Lactobacillus, Escherichia coli, Klebsiella, Streptococcus, staphylococcus and Bacillus. Aerobic organisms are not present in the intestinal tract of healthy individuals with the exception of Pseudomonas, which is present in very small amounts. Most of the bacteria are present in the colon where the bacterial concentration ranges between 10" to 1012 colony-forming units (CPU) per milliliter.

Staphage Lysate (SPL) Staphage lysate (Delmont Labs), a prescribed medication that can be used to stimulate the immune system, is a sterile solution of antigens made from parts of the common staphylococcus aureusbuctcrium and a bacteriophage. These two components are recognized by our body as potential trouble. So when parts of the bacterial cell wall plus the bacteriophages are administered to us, our body responds as if fighting off a potentially serious infection.

Certain compounds in the herb have demonstrated some antibacterial activity, especially against staphylococcus. Naturopathic physicians recommend washing the vulva and vagina with calendula juice. I suggest throwing some calendula flowers into a blender and processing them until they're a pastelike consistency. You can apply this paste to the vaginal area. You may also be able to find calendula salves in health food stores. Use the salve according to the label directions. BLACK WALNUT (JUGLANS NIGRA).

Australian chemists have determined that it takes only about one-fifth as much tea tree oil to defeat yeast as to eradicate the bacteria staphylococcus aureus. Still, tea tree oil may prove helpful as a treatment for bacterial vaginosis. One case study reported in the British medical journal Lancet defor the Gardener Goldenseal Hydrastis canadensis After years of overharvesting, goldenseal has become an endangered species in the wild. You can grow your own from seed, but keep in mind that the roots may take up to 5 years to become mature enough to harvest.

Various studies have shown astragalus to be an immune stimulant that's effective against a variety of bacteria, including salmonella and staphylococcus. The herb also has anti-tumor action, preventing metastasis in 80 percent of mice with cancer in one laboratory trial. (Metastasis refers to the spread of cancer cells from one part of the body to another.) And according to research, astragalus stimulates T-cell activity and improves immune function in cancer patients. Astragalus appears to be safe. I grow it, but I've yet to harvest it. I just leave it in the ground.

Other studies have revealed that mice given ashwagandha are better able to fend off several types of bacterial infection, including pseudo-monas, salmonella, and staphylococcus. In addition, the herb triggers significant increases in bone marrow activity, boosting the production of red blood cells. These cells carry oxygen around your body, another aspect of ashwagandha's role as a strengthener. The recommended daily dose is two 150- to 300-milligram capsules, standardized to contain 2 to 5 milligrams of withanolides.
