MRSA (Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus) is a resistant variation of the common bacterium Staphylococcus aureus. The organism is resistant to a significant group of antibiotics called the beta lactase, which includes penicillins. MRSA is approaching pandemic levels. There is an immediate need for a substance like structured silver in controlling this potentially fatal disease. According to the Journal of the American Medical Association (58), MRSA was responsible for 94,360 serious infections and associated with 18,650 hospital-stay-related deaths in the United States in 2005. The statistics suggest that MRSA infections are responsible for more deaths in the U.S. each year than AIDS.
Symptoms of MRSA usually manifest as a patch of small pustules surrounded by redness and swelling. It may resemble a pimple, spider bite, or boil and may not be accompanied by a fever. The bumps become larger and spread and these larger pus-filled boils can develop deep into the tissue. Most cases infect the skin; a minority of these infections can invade vital organs and cause sepsis, toxic shock syndrome, flesh eating (necrotizing) and pneumonia.
- Drink two tablespoons of structured silver liquid three times a day. This is triple times the normal dose and will work nicely if taken as needed until symptoms subside.
- Apply silver gel to the affected area and surrounding tissue 2-6 times a day. Currently structured silver is the only prophylactic that has activity against MRSA. It can be used for prevention as well as treatment of MRSA. It is important to note that daily use of structured silver does not produce resistant strains of MRSA.
