Staph Infection

http://dherbs.com/images/dherbs400x400.jpg
Staph infections are caused by staphylococcus bacteria. The infection can range from a small boil to a antibiotic resistant infection to a flesh-eating infection.


Causes and Risk Factors

Staph infections are caused by staph bacteria entering the body, usually via a cut on the skin or the mucus membranes (eyes, mouth, nose).

People with weakened immune systems are particularly at risk of contracting a staph infection, so extra precaution should be taken.

Staph infections are contagious when the wound is draining. Avoid contact with surfaces, as the bacteria can be transmitted on many different surfaces, including doorknobs, grocery cart or basket handles, desks, tables, steering wheels, bottled condiments at restaurants, fitness equipment in gyms, locker rooms, stair railings-pretty much any where.

Staph infections are more common in North America, primarily due to our overuse of antibiotics and anti-microbial products. We have created super-germs while weakening our natural resistance (immune system).


Symptoms

Staph infection symptoms can range from:
  • A lump that looks like a pimple or a bug bite
  • Swelling
  • Redness around a cut or affected area
  • "Heat" in the affected area
  • Fever (if the infection moves beyond the skin and into the blood stream)
  • Chills and sweats
Staph infections that penetrate the bloodstream can be very serious, even fatal. They require immediate professional attention and intervention.


Natural Healing Solutions

If you have a cut, wash the area with soap and water, then apply an antiseptic remedy such as Tea Tree Oil. Keep the wound clean, dry and covered to prevent additional bacteria from entering the body.

A thorough cleansing of the body with an emphasis on the blood and lymphatic system and fluids and the major eliminative channels (colon, liver, lungs, kidneys) is mandatory when healing from a staph infection.

You can also gargle with a glass of warm water, sea salt (1/3 teaspoon), and 2 drops of Tea Tree oil if the staph infection is oral in nature.

Essential oils can be quite effective for staph infections. Good essential oils to add to your bath water for your anti-staph soak include:
  • Tea Tree
  • Manuka
  • Ravensare
  • Kanuka
  • Leleshwa
  • Niaouli
  • Eucalyptus
  • Cajeput
  • Thuja
  • Cinnamon (leaf, not bark)
  • Vetivert
Simply add a few drops (1-2 drops of each oil, or 3-5 drops of an individual oil) to the bath water of each bath you take.


Dietary Intervention

To heal from any disease, always modify the diet and include more raw, organic, fresh fruits and vegetables so as to raise the body's pH level. A diet that consists of 75% raw foods and 25% vegan foods is conducive to healing. However, you can't go wrong with green foods.

When healing from any disease, ALWAYS abstain from consuming meat and dairy products as well as all processed and refined so-called foods.

Drink plenty of fresh organic vegetable juice (especially parsley and cilantro). Vegetable juice is healing, rebuilding, and nourishing and helps to raise the body's pH level (to an alkaline level).

Reasons to Stay Clear of Eggs

For many making the transition to a plant-based lifestyle, cheese and eggs can be the hardest things to give up. In fact, a love for eggs and cheese in particular is often cited as one of the reasons people go vegetarian as opposed to vegan. It seems meat is easy to give up for some, while many can’t let go of the dairy stuffs. Recently, a Huffington Post blogger posted on “5 Smart Reasons to Eat Eggs,” with mention of the high protein content of the food, a possible reduced risk of cancer, and more. We’re here to tell you, Green Monsters, this advice isn’t so great for you – or for the animals involved in the egg industry. Here are 5 Reasons to NOT Eat Eggs:

1. Many studies show egg consumption actually increases the risk of certain types of cancers, including colorectal and bladder cancers. Check this out: “A case-control study done in Argentina found that people consuming approximately 1 1/2 eggs per week had nearly 5 times the colorectal cancer risk compared with individuals consuming less than 11 eggs per year. And, the World Health Organization analyzed data from 34 countries and determined that egg consumption was significantly and positively correlated with mortality from colon and rectal cancers in both men and women. Moderate egg consumption also tripled the risk of developing bladder cancer as determined by a case-control study of 130 newly diagnosed bladder cancer patients published in the journal International Urology and Nephrology.” In other words, don’t risk it! There are so many egg alternatives out there that it’s silly to risk your health.

Vermont to Pass GMO Labeling!

Against the odds and the lofty wallets of Monsanto lobbyists, Vermont is soon to be the first state to require mandatory GMO labeling.

On April 16, with a vote of 28 to 2, the Vermont state senate passed a bill that makes GMO labeling mandatory for all foods sold in Vermont. It also identifies it as being illegal for GMO-containing foods to be labelled as “natural” or “all natural.”
