There isn't a company that makes a drug that can kill this one:http://www.npr.org/2011/07/15/138164324 ... d-in-japanDonut wrote:Not trying to derail and you must be doing better if you completely ignored Tony's question asking if you're doing better.

I wasn't saying any specific person was more paranoid. I think how the media operates, it makes everyone more paranoid.
If you see in the news one new disease every single day. (I swear I do see new drug advertising often enough, but not every day.) <= The people who are paying for research of diseases are also the companies that sell the drugs that treat the diseases. If medical companies make weaker drugs to treat disease so you'll have to buy more.
It seems funny that in any other business, false advertising, false claims, marketing new problems, and making a product for cheaper wouldn't surprise anyone. When it comes to medicine, it is a big surprise. Maybe I'm just the paranoid one.
Greetings and Welcome to the Spyderco Forum Arnis Student.Arnis Student wrote:Hi JD, like someone who posted who from Australia, Guava leaves (or Bayabas leaves in Manila) when boiled in water is great to use for washing wounds. Not sure if it can fight infection but definitely good for the wound. Malunggay leaves mixed with soup(don't know it's English counterpart) is good for blood circulation. The vegetable Ampalaya (again dont know the english word for it) is also good for blood.
I pray that you do not smoke and that it is not Buerger's Disease. Get well soon!
Thanks for the input VashHash I've been a big fan of natural honey for many years now. I even seriously looked into being a bee keeper at one time. There are many things that natural honey and bee pollen can help and I've been aware of honey's beneficial properties for some time now.VashHash wrote:Didn't read all the responses but I would suggest raw honey it has all kinds of benefits supposedly it also has hydrogen peroxide or something just make sure it's raw honey and not the super filtered stuff the pollen and propolis in raw honey are very beneficial to just an alternative to look into
Agree 100% Paul. I think we've caused a lot of the problems we're seeing these days.The Deacon wrote:I disagree. I think what JD said is true, and that it's mostly the result of antibiotics being over prescribed for so many years that resistant forms of more and more diseases have developed.
Solid, very nice, how can I argue that one?SolidState wrote:There isn't a company that makes a drug that can kill this one:http://www.npr.org/2011/07/15/138164324 ... d-in-japan
Thanks Dialex and all my other Spyder Brethren ( Sisters too ) for all the well wishes. This is truly the most puzzling afflection I've ever dealt with. For the past 2 days I hardly had no pain what so ever and today it's as though someone has set it on fire again. I've been celebrating the 4th of July by eating pain killers and anti-inflamatory meds trying to keep this under control.dialex wrote:Hi Joe. I am in no way qualified to give any medical advice, I can only wholeheartly wish you a full and quick recovery. Get well soon, my friend!
-er, me, by way of Tyrion LannisterI drink, and I cut things.
This is excellent advice, in fact the same advice my doctor gave me. If you have to be on large doses of antibiotics for an extended time, you really need the probiotic during and after the course of treatment. It may be a good idea to take it for the rest of your life, I do.Diamondback wrote:One thing you might seriously consider is taking a good probiotic supplement to restore the beneficial bacteria that normally inhabits the gut....and has been wiped out by the antibiotics. Nature abhors a vacuum, and so often after a round of antibiotics a yeast infection, or worse, colitis caused by problematic bacteria and their toxic by-products will overwhelm the colon.
A good probiotic, while it won't cure infection, will help to boost immune function over time.
Pretty similar to what I was going to suggest: hot peppers, garlic, salmon, halibut, and lots of juice.monsterdog wrote:
Eat a ton of (preferably raw, cut it up and let it sit for a minute or two before eating) garlic as well as chiles.
Add some fatty fish to your diet like salmon, trout or herring.
I'm pretty sure he is talking about Colloidal Silver. I used to have friend who had his own Colloidal Silver generator. It is curious because they've been using some silver impregnated bandages and a silver impregnatad gauze called AG Aquacel. And it does seem to be doing some good. I am aware of silver's anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties. I have heard however that you better know what you're doing with Colloidal Silver solution because if you do it wrong you can literally change your skin color to a pale blue or graydefenestrate wrote:I reckon you're referring to colloidal silver, Jazz. It's pretty easy to make at home, and you can make many years worth with a fairly modest start up cost. Would likely work here - might need something like DMSO/MSM/both to get it into the infected area, but it should be safe and at least somewhat effective. Some folks drink it regularly, but when you do it can eventually turn your skin blueish (the condition is known as Argyria, unsightly but not dangerous, still you would have to drink a lot regularly to have said effect). I wouldn't hesitate to try it on an infection, adding DMSO to get through the skin.
I'm very much aware of "probiotics" which renew the good flora in your intestines. I eat a lot of yogurt>> I also eat a lot of "goat's Milk yogurt". Don't laugh because "goat's milk" has a ton of healing properties especially in the gastrointestinal areas of the body. I am very blessed with a great health food store very close by that has the really good grades of yogurt ( not the garbage you get at the grocery store).bravodelta wrote:Load up on tons of probiotics for your gut. The antibiotics kill the natural flora in your intestines and are responsible for some of your lack of energy. Eat tons of yogurt, but making simple yogurt yourself (look it up, very simple) is the best. 1-2 daily for a few months.
I had a similar, but much less serious situation and it helped me out tremendously. Also, doesn't affect your current treatment.
Got something for that as well JD.....DocJD Spydo wrote:I'm very much aware of "probiotics" which renew the good flora in your intestines.

I'm done with the antibiotics for the time being anyway. And I won't do anymore until I try this other method. This wound/infection has been on the biggest living nightmares of my life. But I'm getting some great advice from many of you all here at Spyderville. I was also told by my doctor over the phone yesterday that anything that will increase my blood circulation would also be a big plus. I do thank all of you for your great input. JD
