Is This The Answer To MRSA Infection?

Today, I am straying from my usual topics, providing free water information, because of the important nature of the news I want to share with you.

I spent Christmas 2004 in hospital having undergone a triple bypass heart operation. Take my word for it, we, a group of about twelve patients who could not be returned home for various reasons, spent a pleasant Yuletide, comforted with glasses of wine to wash down the Christmas day meal.

My fears had never been that I would not survive the surgery, but that I would survive the surgery and then succumb to a MRSA bacterial infection.

Newspaper reports, even then, were heralding the growth of this super bacteria strain and the inability of hospital managers and staff to prevent the infection of numerous patients.

Well, here may be a discovery that will end the potency of this pestilence and allow me to sleep more soundly should I ever have to return to the hospital again for more treatment.

This article is from the Daily Health eAlert of the 10th June 2014.

Where do you turn when a problem is just too big for Big Pharma to tackle?

More and more, the answer is back to the things that have been there all along.

The latest example is the risk of getting a MRSA infection — the dreaded superbug that threatens tens of thousands of hospital patients every year.

A team of UK and Indian researchers has discovered that tiny amounts of carvacrol, a naturally occurring compound in the herb oregano, can zap this deadly intruder. In fact, its ability to kill fungi and bacteria has been found to be more effective than 18 different drugs!

Carvacrol stays potent in boiling water. So it can be used to sterilize hospital sheets.

And even its vapour can kill microbes. That means it could be turned into a disinfectant spray.

The number of MRSA cases, according to the US Centres for Disease Control, were over 80,000 according to data from 2010 and 2011. Now just imagine if a traditional garden-variety herb could cut that down to zero!

Maybe the real 'wonder drugs' of the world are the ones found in our gardens and spice racks.

You are having a pretty good point in this post and I am surely convinced by the explanation that you have got here. Now if you are having more conservative explanation than I am interested to get one.

We need to be really vigilant on our health and be wary of anything we consume.
