MRSA Now Accounts for More Deaths in the USA than HIVAIDS

The greatest challenge to medical science today is MRSA, the number one cause of infectious deaths in hospitals. Since the mid 1950’s

 MRSA has evolved to become nearly invincible to most antibiotics. Because of this, science is frantically seeking a replacement the will eliminate MRSAsymptoms while avoiding the constant cycle of new antibiotic, MRSA mutates and is impervious to it so new antibiotics must be created. 

Most people are aware that antibiotics destroy the “good gut flora (bacteria)” that comprises approximately 70% of our immune system within our large intestine. Unfortunately, antibiotics are taken at a time when we need our immune system the most.

Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infection are most prominent on skin, so skin lesions and infections must never be treated lightly. They may resemble a common malady, but in reality, it may be MRSA. It is best to consult a doctor or health care professional if you see any symptom or a combination of symptoms, discussed here. Though the bacteria staph is present in 25% to 30% people, in their nose, they are not affected by it. The bacteria affect only 1% population and they suffer from MRSA. Symptoms of this disease should not be overlooked, as the disease is very fatal and immediate medical care is required.

MRSA Symptoms List

Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infection is a sometimes fatal infection, caused by Staphylococcus Aureus bacteria. This strain is actually resistant to broad spectrum antibiotics. Mostly, patients of MRSA symptoms are found in hospitals, not in communities. Symptoms of MRSA depend on the area of body, where infection sets in like skin or a wound. In case of skin infection, the area may look like a boil.

Usually you can identify this disease, by observing skin, if you see there is:

  • Swelling
  • Redness
  • Painful patches
  • Boils filled with pus
  • Abscesses
  • Impetigo

MRSA symptoms can also cause skin infections like Cellulitis, Sty an infection of eyelid gland and Carbuncles.

Other symptoms include, fever, chill, short breath etc. Necrotizing fasciitis is another infection, which may result from MRSA infection in human body. MRSA symptoms can affect lungs and cause pneumonia.

Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus ( MRSA) infection also manifest in form of low blood pressure, headaches, and rashes over body etc. The bacteria may reach important internal organs, like heart, lungs, bones, joints and cause serious damage. This infection is life threatening and must be treated with caution and urgency.

If you see a mark on skin resembling spider bite, you should not overlook it, as it can be MRSA also. Septicemia, toxic shocks are two other symptoms of MRSA. You must understand that most people are merely carriers of MRSA and may carry this disease for years, without getting affected with it.

MRSA, the antibiotic resistant staph bacteria that has been a secret and silent killer in healthcare facilities for decades is at epidemic levels worldwide. MRSA Survivors Network, a global leader in the fight for MRSA awareness, education and prevention launches this week – “International MRSA Testing Week, April 1-7th” a new global campaign with the slogan “Prevention Saves Lives” that draws critical attention for the need of healthcare facilities worldwide to screen high risk patients for MRSA upon admission with continued surveillance and testing – active detection and isolation (ADI) saves lives.

“The fact that more Americans (>19,000) die every year from invasive MRSA infections, (according to the Centers for Disease Control – CDC) than from HIV/AIDS every year should be a wake-up call for immediate action, MRSA is a preventable disease, states Jeanine Thomas, founder of MRSA Survivors Network".

Methocillian and now Vancomyacin fail to kill MRSA

Recent data show that the treatment of MRSA bacteremia caused by strains of MRSA with slightly lower susceptibility to vancomycin (MIC>1 ugm/ml), which are increasing frequently, are associated with higher morbidity, mortality and treatment failures. This is reinforced by recent multi-center studies at both the Veteran’s Administration (150 hospitals) and throughout the HCA system that have yet again documented that through implementation of ADI, MRSA rates can dramatically reduce, not just in intensive care units, but hospital-wide. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (including the CDC) should mandate ADI. If we are to really believe in patient safety, all healthcare facilities worldwide with endemic MRSA should fully implement ADI as Northern European countries have done successfully; some for decades.

 

If the FDA was doing their job, why are we EATING MRSA at our dinner table?

“It’s up to all of us to help stop the spread of MRSA worldwide in humans, animals, in the environment and in our food supply,” says Jeanine Thomas. “So many people have died from this preventable disease or have become permanently disabled, bankrupt and even homeless – entire families have been shattered.”

The World Health Organization (WHO) must finally acknowledge the MRSA epidemic and set up a worldwide MRSA surveillance and reporting system. Such a system would facilitate the collection of data on MRSA infections and colonization with a public release of such data on a designated website. This would illustrate the true magnitude of the MRSA epidemic and public health crisis worldwide and also facilitate the implementation of active detection and isolation (ADI).

  • as if americans aren’t over charged enough by hospitals, danser’s website charges you 37.00 dollars for one ounce of colloidal silver, for that same $37 you could make 100 GALLONS at home!

  • The Most Expensive Colloidal Silver Actually Saves You $100s Comparatively

    You’ll be shocked at how awesome this is. It truly is an innovation you can feel in your wallet, right where it counts.

    At 3600 ppm, NutraSilver is potent enough to kill the worst viral, fungal and bacterial infections, so you’ve got that covered and you won’t be forced to compromise potency to save a little money.

    That’s great, but coming in at a whopping 30 mL per bottle, an entire ounce, it seems like this powerful solution is expensive drop for drop. Well, if you were comparing one bottle of NutraSilver to one bottle of the leading colloidal silver, it sure would be. It would be three times as expensive in some cases.

    If you’ve used colloidal silver before, chances are you’re used to a 10 ppm or 20 ppm colloidal silver. That’s pretty typical. An 8 ounce bottle of the ionic silver costs between $12 and $25.

    But you can do much better with NutraSilver. Here’s how:
    JUST ONE BOTTLE OF NUTRASILVER…
    MAKES 46 EIGHT OUNCE BOTTLES OF 10 PPM COLLOIDAL SILVER

    Buy one bottle of NutraSilver and add just 13 drops to an 8 ounce bottle of distilled or filtered water and you have a very powerful 10 ppm solution. The cool thing is that there are 600 drops in one 30 mL bottle of NutraSilver. Which means that you can make 46 different 8 ounce bottles of 10 ppm colloidal silver with one bottle of NutraSilver.

    If you like that 10 ppm dilution, then with your 46 bottles packed into a single one ounce bottle of NutraSilver, how long will that last you? That might mean you could technically have a 4-year supply in just one bottle of NutraSilver… and you’d pay less than $1 for each bottle. That’s budget conscious right there.

    So what’s the magic number? How much could one bottle of NutraSilver save you if you’re an avid user of colloidal silver?

    Let’s be conservative and say you could get an 8-ounce bottle of 10 ppm colloidal silver for $12 bottle. In that case:
    NutraSilver Saves You At Least $552 Comparatively

  • He claims to have a certified lab report PROVING his colloidal silver has 3,600 ppm.
    WHERE IS THIS MAGICAL REPORT!?!?!
    SHOW IT TO US!!
    Can’t show what you don’t have huh?

  • Anonymous

    Nice article here. Good scare tactic for those with no knowledge in basic human physiology. However, are you claiming that your product will cure people with MRSA sp. infections?

    • Actually, there is no claim to cure anything in this article.

      If knowing the facts about diseases if frightening to you and you consider it a “scare tactic”, then perhaps reading fact-based articles is not your cup of tea?
