What works for MRSA? My younger two children have it, as does my mom and one of my nieces... .

Unfortunately, my son has been on antibiotics for *years* for acne (against my wishes, but with his father's blessings... :face palm 2: ), and I'm really afraid that's going to make MRSA worse for him. I've used lavender and frankincense essential oils along with hot salty compresses, regular hot water compresses, fresh slices of garlic held in place by a ban-aid overnight (he didn't know what I used or he might not have been too happy!)... . I even tried Eucalyptus once... . He's gotten very good at catching it early and asking me to help treat it, so everything pretty much has worked that early on in the game. Once he ended up in the ER with chills and it was beginning to spread, and he took it very seriously after that, thankfully!

I'm guessing ground up flax seed or a plantain poultice might work wonders if it was caught late? What would work if antibiotics weren't available, or we chose to use something more natural? Yup, thinking about the Martian invasion or Apocalypse. :scared:

Stephen Buhner in his book Herbal Antibiotics, claims that 1/2 tsp to 1 tbsp of Sida acuta extract 3-6 times a day for 30-60 days will cure MRSA. Or ten cups of Sida acuta tea a day. My experience with Sida acuta is that it is the most powerful herbal antibiotic known anywhere, but completely unknown to Western herbal lore. Several Sidas are considered natives in our semi-tropical South, actually can be commercial weeds, but still have been overlooked. Incredible stuff.
What I discovered was the annual form of Sida acuta (a perennial) will grow in Zone 8, and is fully medicinal, which means anyone who can grow tomatoes can grow this incredible medicinal. Check out my website for more on Sida ( You won't be disappointed.
