For a while, when I had terrible health problems, one of the afflictions was frequent boils. Have you ever had a boil?
When a boil gets deeply abscessed, it is terribly painful. I had to go to the urgent care doctor. She dug in and cleaned out the boil, yuck.
And she said, “we’re going to culture this and see if it’s MRSA.”
What’s the heck’s going on with MRSA?
MRSA, or methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, is the newest superbug created by hospitals and nursing homes and probably by their fetish for cleanliness that leads to its opposite, bacteria that nothing can kill.
It’s one of the reasons why I would rather die than go to the hospital. Just kidding, sort of.
Anyway, it wasn’t MRSA, so I got antibiotics that I took at the time.
These days, I would probably do things a lot differently, and I haven’t had a boil for years. But that’s another story.
You may be fighting MRSA right now. Or, chances are you may get an infection that is resistant to antibiotics. MRSA is just one of many such infections.
Or, you may have a problem in your gut,
For example, you may have a small intestinal bacterial overgrowth, SIBO where you burp and have indigestion all the time, and life is miserable whenever you eat.
Or you may have Crohn’s disease or some kind of infection in your bowel. Ugly stuff.
What these all have in common these days, is they are resistant to antibiotics
You may have tried Flagyl, or you may have tried different antibiotics, and you may be at wits end. Or you know someone who is.
Here is new Hope using garlic and onions to fix intestinal bugs and antibiotic-resistant infections
This is just one of many studies where you combine a bit of garlic, and a bit of onion, usually red onion.
You mix it with a little wine and add 1 g of taurine. And you eat it, or you apply it to a wound.
You can get taurine in a bag very cheaply. It’s quite useful.
Taurine increases the secretion of bile salts, which seems to be essential for garlic and onion to work when you take them internally.
And you always want to go slow with these kinds of things. You want to only swallow a small amount because it may cause a lot of indigestion.
Does cooking the onion and garlic make it not work?
It seems to work better if it’s raw, but even cooked it seemed to have some effect. You may start out with swallowing it cooked and then moved to raw as your gut recovers. If you’re applying this to a wound, then you would probably want to use the raw garlic and Raw onion.
Dr Freya Harrison said “we were absolutely blown away by just how effective the combination of ingredients was.”
