What is MRSA?

The increasing prevalence of Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) in hospitals and the community is a direct result of the over-use of prescription antibiotics. MRSA is considered a “super-bug” and is showing increasing resistance to topical and oral antibiotics. Dr. McCool treats MRSA successfully without the use of antibiotics by implementing effective therapies that are used to kill the bacteria, while strengthening the individuals’ immune system to prevent future infections and complications.

MRSA Facts

Antibiotic resistance is caused by the use of antibiotics, not by the bacteria.

1. “Antibiotic use promotes development of antibiotic-resistant bacteria” Centers for Disease Control (CDC) read more: http://www.cdc.gov/getsmart/antibiotic-use/fast-facts.html

2. “Bacteria are particularly efficient at enhancing the effects of resistance, not only because of their ability to multiply very rapidly but also because they can transfer their resistance genes, which are passed on when the bacteria replicate” World Health Organization (WHO) read more: http://www.who.int/mediacentre/factsheets/fs194/

MRSA Symptoms

Symptoms of MRSA can vary from person to person. Some common presentations include:

1. Small red pimple or boil that continues to occur

2. Painful swelling or abscess on the skin

3. Sore Throat - often mistaken for strep throat

Untreated MRSA infections can lead to more life threatening infections, such as pneumonia, bone infections and heart infections.

It is important to diagnose and treat MRSA in its early stages because as it progresses, it becomes increasingly more difficult to treat.

MRSA Prevention and the spread of MRSA:

1. Avoid taking unnecessary antibiotics for viral infections such as the flu and common cold. Antibiotics kill only bacteria and are powerless over viral infections.

2. Avoid meat that has been treated with antibiotics. Ingesting antibiotics in our food can increase bacterial resistance and create more super bugs.

To treat MRSA infections:

MRSA Treatments: Conventional Approach:

MRSA is treated with courses of topical and oral antibiotics. This does not cure MRSA but only attempts to stop the progression. This treatment continues to create more resistance and it fails to address our body's own ability to fight infection.

MRSA Naturopathic/Natural Treatments and Approach:

MRSA is treated by giving strong oral and topical natural antibiotics that are pharmaceutical grade - capable of killing the bacteria like conventional antibiotics- without creating resistance.

Individualized treatment plan to strengthen and enhance the bodies’ immune system so that the body can also fight the infection. Dr. McCool employs several strong therapies to help her patients fight MRSA effectively and safely.
