OK, the PRESCRIPTION FOR NATURAL CURES by James F Balch, MD and Mark Stengler, ND, says:

Tea tree oil--
medicinal use: topically for skin fungus, burns, and acne, cold sores, mouth and gum infections, skin infections, vaginitis, warts.
potential side effects: too high of a concentration to the skin can be irritating. Use cautiously on the face. Do not ingest internally (except for mouthwashes), unless under the guidance of a doctor.
comments: it's excellent for athlete's foot.


I've used the mouthwash to help heal gum pockets and found it helpful.

Yes, tea tree oil is said to have healing properties. It is highly regarded by many. I'm not sure why they are recommending it for the MRSA, though. To kill the bug and stop the infection? To heal the skin? Healing the skin I can understand.

I'd be happy to contact my friend the holistic pharmacist on your behalf, or give you his name and number. He's a very caring person. I've been racking my brain trying to think what might help you. I'll pass on anything I can think of.


I appreciate that, Jeanne.

I also notice, from the same reference (quite a handy book, by the way), that spirulina is "an excellent detoxifier" and full of minerals. I'm thinking of DR ELMORE here. Spirulina can be purchased in a powder and mixed with water or juice to make a "green drink" or can be taken in capsule form.

I know of an excellent product that's designed to kill parasites--notoriously difficult--called PARAGARD. I'm wondering if that might help. It's a broad-spectrum herbal, ie has many different herbs to cover many different parasites.

The Wikipedia article says that tea tree oil is an antifungal, so that would make sense.

Frankly, Jeanne, I don't remember anymore,  Too much information to try and absorb since Thursday.  As I had previously told Coldslaw, since Monday I had been using the power of positive thinking to will myself not to have MRSA.  So, Thursday I had to reverse course.

Tea tree oil in small amounts can be helpful, but it can certainly also be irritating.....should be heavily diluted out of the bottle.

How about using the power of positive thinking to help you find a solution and a speedy recovery?

I thought that MRSI was a staph infection (bacterial) that doesn't respond to many antibiotics.

That's what I read, too. But there are natural antibiotics, natural antivirals, and natural antifungals, which is what those of us who can't tolerate drugs often use. You'd be surprised how much is available!

Owen had an interesting suggestion when it seemed that there might be just a few minutes left.....but Ianto's response was classic.

I didn't think an antifungal would work on a bacterium.

DR LAURA - just greet everybody with the question:

Bride of Christ or Bride of Satan?

If nothing else, it will get everyone talking.
