I think I might need to change my user name on here and take off the
"sad" part lol

I just wanted to update my situation. On April 20th, out of no where
a MRSA boil popped out on my inner thigh...talk about painful.
Instead of calling the dr, I did garlic baths every day (sat in them
for about an hour and a half each time) and also applied rags soaked
in garlic water through out the day and within about 3 day the spot
was healed up!!! No antibiotics or draining! I must say I'm pretty
excited. Garlic is now my best friend lol

My son hasn't had any spots in about a month. I have been giving him
garlic baths about once or twice a week and also bleach baths once or
twice a week and the other days I just have been showering him.

I just hope I'm not speaking too soon where the garlic is concerned!

I'm still doing all the cleaning stuff the ID doc recommended...my
washer has been going nonstop lol and I think I have the cleanest
toilet around!

(I still have that abscess on my butt that is klebsiella pneumoniae,
I'm hoping the garlic will take care of that but I'm not sure it will,
just glad the mrsa is gone!)

Mommy -

I'm glad to hear you are having success in your battle against MRSA. Since the Klebsiella Pneumoniae is an encpusulated bacteria it may require a more direct approach in order to have any chance of success.

Of course, I am not a doctor and cannot give any medical advice, all I can do is discuss the properties of garlic when used in different ways and let people make their own decisions.

I once had a severe case of severe diarrhea for several weeks caused by food poisoning and finally I gave myself a garlic water enema and it knocked it out completely and after taking asome acidoplolus to restore intestinal flora, my norma bowel health was restored but I had to irrigate my entire colon rather than only the terminal descending portion of it.

I don't know whether it would work against an encapsulated bacteria like Klebsiella or not and in any case I am not allowed to recommend it. You and your doctors must decide that for yourselves.

Good luck to you.

Hi Bob - would you know if garlic that is organic means no irradiation? I have access to Whole Foods and was wondering about that. I would assume it would but I could not find information on that. I bought what was labeled organic, but when I cut up any of the cloves, I did not see the sprout at all. Thanks for all your info on garlic!

Bob, by a more direct approach do you mean applying garlic directly to
the spot or that garlic probably wont work and I should look into
something else?

John P -

Sometimes in newly harvested garlic, the sprout is very small, even tiny and the entire thing is located just emerging from the basal plate. Another clue you can look for is the taste of the garlic; is it hot when chewed raw or just garlicky? If hot it may be a recently harvested garlic with a tiny sprout but if it is not hot even though garlicky and there is no sprout then it has been irradiated and will not work. Truly organic garlic is not irradiated but sometimes people advertise things as organic even though they are not in order to get a higher price for them. After all, how many people really know the difference or know how to tell whether garlic has been irradiated or not?

This time of year it is very difficult to find good garlic because last years crop has mostly already sprouted and this years crop has not yet been harvested. It is possible that some garlic grown in south Texas or even Mexico may already have harvested but most US garlics will not harvest until June or July. Garlic grown south of the equater will have harvested in January and the sprout would be quite visible in the cloves by now.

Garlic powder will work if it was properly dried, that is, under 140 F. Some makers of garlic powder for culinary use rather than for use in pills don't understand that drying under high heat destroys or greatly reduces the medicinal value of it.

Good luck to you.

Sad Mommy -

By more direct I was referring to using a squeeze bulb or something similar to inject the garlic water directly into the rectum if that is where the Klebsiella is rather than depending on it getting to it via the bloodstream. I'm not sure how effective it will be because of the encapsulation but it is worth a try.

Sometimes people need to think outside the box when the standard approaches don't give the desired results.

Good luck to you.

Great information, and very heartening success stories. Thank you for
sharing your struggles and experiences. It is truly helpful.

My question is, are people pairing garlic treatments with any other
topical treatments or antibiotics? And has the combination been more-
or-less effective than just using one or the other?

Many thanks!

Bob,

Should the garlic be crushed or sliced before it is placed in the hot bath water? I could not find the Silverskin or Porcelain one at the health food store, but will look for it tomorrow at the Farmer's Market.

Ray -

It needs to be crushed as much as you can and the more damage done to it the better and then let it rest about 15 minutes before being mixed with water.

The garlic does not have to be Porcelains or Silverskins (both long storing varieties), any locally grown garlic will do but the hotter when tasted raw, the better.

Thanks Bob. I did that per your instruction. I covered the sores wit manuka honey afterwards. Not sure if I should have just left them covered without the honey or not. We will see what happens in the next few days.

One other question: When do we notice the effects of sores healing, if at all, after we bathe in the garlic water? One, two, three days or more. Or, do we have to bathe in it over a period of time to see any results if any?

Thought I would tell you my experience with garlic. I had a staph sinus infection, with infection running out my nose constantly. I ate crushed garlic cloves with bread dipped in vinegar. I heard vinegar activates enzymes. I took two bites every hour, and nothing else. In four hours the infection was gone.
So glad you are spreading the news of garlic, God's cure.

!!!!!!!! IF YOU ARE READING THIS !!!!!!!!!!!

Please know garlic baths DO work. It's not a scam or quack medicine. Ordinarily speaking, I'd never recommend natural medicine or anything like that over actual scientifically tested medicine - but when you start dealing with resistant bacteria you need to pull out all the stops. The more stuff you hit it with, the less likely it is to survive. Evolution is tough stuff, but it can't adapt immunity to -everything-.

Didn't use hibiclens or anything else. Am not on oral antibiotics. Did not spot treat with anything else. In other words, either the garlic cleared up my burning red bumpy spot, or just sitting in water did. I'm inclined to think it's the former. So, in other words, at least for pretty superficial "pre-infections", garlic baths (seem) to work. Will definitely be using these from now on.

As for my old red bumpy spots that were in a state of perpetually not healing? They're clearing up more and more each day, although it's a long battle and sometimes it looks like they're getting worse before it suddenly reverses itself after a bath.

Also, there's been a lot of confusion on the issue, but if you're allergic to sulfa drugs you are -not- necessarily allergic to garlic. I'm alergic to sulfa, garlic has absolutely no adverse effects on me.

I love garlic!! Everything is looking so much better. My soreness is going away, anytime I get a bump garlic will make it go away after 10 minutes in the bath. I can live like this and I really didn't think I could before, depression, anxiety, all of that. The -only- thing I changed in my care regimen was garlic and it's made all the difference in the world.

Bob - any advice for applying garlic to the face? Submerging my head in the tub for any long period of time is pretty inconvenient.

Since I've found this forum I've been recommending the medicinal uses of garlic to anyone that will listen. I had a recurring (two years) staph infection that I picked up from a hospital. I had one round of antibiotics that were useless. I read a bit of the forum and rushed to make a garlic poultice. The staph infection cleared up! I'm kind of extreme; I made a large poultice by crushing and chopping a bunch of garlic, applied it and then stuck wax paper over it so I could lie down on it for 5 hours. It burned like heck for a long time (I'm sensitive) but I just wanted to get rid of it. I was left with red burn marks but no blisters. The marks are fading. It was worth it but in future I'll use garlic water and baths. Since I had the infection for 2 years, it had gotten into my muscle tissue. I am thrilled to read that the baths should work to get the allicin into my circulatory system. It's been awhile but it came back, much smaller though. I'm going to start the baths.
Thank you so much for starting this forum and sharing your knowledge.

My Story: I was hospitalized with cellulitis MRSA in groin area and MRSA in left lung. I had never experienced something so painful. Morphine did nothing for my pain. I rec'd IV Vanco and other IV antibiotics, released for 3 weeks of oral antibiotics. Broke out in hives 24/7 for several weeks. I was on Benadryl 24 hours a day. My menstrual cycle also stopped immediately. ID doctor and OBGYN could not tell me dowwhy. Dr's n played my illness and did not tell me anything. ID doctor did not even want to see me after my release. I was told to call only if I got a temperature.

After reading online about MRSA and the struggles people were having, I was scared, depressed and lonely. Approximately 1 month later, I started getting wierd bumps I had never seen before. I started using oregano and tree tea oil on them. I tried to build my immune system by eating healthy, no sugars and lots of greens, taking vitamins and probiotics. I did bleach baths and hibiclens (sp?). This worked initially. Then I started getting the bumps more often. They were more painful now and were growing larger. I knew they were boils. I decided to try garlics baths. After 2 baths, I noticed my boils shrank and were less painful. All the boils disappeared after 1 week. I continue with the garlic baths and I have not seen any more bumps. Surprisingly even my menstrual cycle returned. I always believed MRSA had something to do with it.

I will continue with my garlic baths. I am hopeful that I can return in a year or 2 to say I am still MRSA free. I wanted to share this as I remember that when I first came to this forum, I wanted so badly to see more success stories. Most of what I read was a lot of pain and suffering.

Thank you Bob and LadyK. You both inspired me and I used many of your suggestions and they seem to be working. I truely believe that they all played a role. I also gained much knowledge from LadyK and feel more empowered to take over my health.

I have received Vancomycin and did not like the side effects. It also did not cure my MRSA. I will only use it when absolutely necessary since MRSA can become resistant to it and it can have some bad side effects. I recently started doing the non-irradiated garlic. At first, I would apply it directly to any new boils I would see coming. It worked at getting them to heal, but then the next would pop up. So I decided to do the garlic baths suggested by Bob Anderson. This is a much better option to treating MRSA. No side effects and the baths not only healed what I had but it also prevented new ones from resurfacing. I have been doing these for a couple of months and am doing great. I know we all have different strains of MRSA and am not sure the garlic baths will work for everyone. They have worked for me so far.

First of all. Wow. In two days of following the crushed garlic water routine to the
recommended procedure from this site, the wound I've had inside of my left sinus has
gone from raw oozing to crusting and now almost gone. I almost don't believe it.

I have had this wound inside of my nose for almost 12 years now. I've been on all kinds
of antibiotics, anti-fungals and Bact-whatever cream prescribed from my ENT for two
years with only modest relief, oh, and sinus surgery. Nothing gave me relief so fast like
this. Nothing.

I will keep doing the garlic rinse for a couple of more weeks and see what happens. If I
can go a couple of weeks with no oozing, painful area that has always been there, then
this is nothing short of a garlic miracle.

Thank you again, Bob. Thank you.
