The purpose of this site is to collect lab research by medical doctors about herbs that are proven to treat illnesses and counter the false attacks on herbs by the medical industry and false claims by alternative medicine. I let the science tell the facts.

MRSA

Often referred to as the hospital super bug.

The following reports provide numerous herbs that have potential to minimize the effects of MRSA.

1. "MRSA, as like other staph infections, is found on a persons skin or in their nose. The spread of the infection is very easy. A brush against someone's side, or even being around when someone is sneezing could potentially cause the spread of the disease. They call MRSA a Superbug because of how incredibly easy it is to spread the infection. The interesting thing with MRSA however, is that healthy people can carry and spread the MRSA. The only time you can truly become affected buy it, is if it enters the body, usually through a cut or break in the skin. However, people with weakened immune systems are more likely to be easily effected by MRSA.

MRSA infections are more commonly to happen in hospitals and other similar places like nursing homes.

1. Barberry, Berberine or Beberis is an herb research shows will fight cancer...effective against infections possibly even MRSA, diabetes, ...

2. "Green Tea (Camellia sinensis) has been known for its modulation of resistance of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) to beta-lactam antibiotics in vitro... This study concluded that Green tea extract weakened the antibacterial effect of amoxicillin in MRSA infected mice. Tea drinking is not recommended in combination with amoxicillin treatment. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19653316

3. "...Camellia sinensis leaves extract (Green Tea) could be useful in combating emerging drug-resistance caused by MRSA and P. aeruginosa..." http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3703562/

4. "Of the twenty-two components of tea decoctions commonly used to treat infections, only Scutellaria, Taraxacum, Tussilago and Glycyrrhiza exhibited antimicrobial activity. The activity, when present, was organism specific, i.e., anti-Staphylococcus aureus, including anti-MRSA activity under aerobic and/or anaerobic conditions. However, with the exception of Scutellaria, sub-inhibitory concentrations of the herbs exhibited a pattern of inducing enhanced production of biofilm. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24427955

5. "...In this study we checked the antibacterial activity inherent in Ricinus communis, Solanum nigrum, Dodonaea viscose and Berberis lyceum extracts for multidrug resistance bacterial strains Klebsiella pneumonae, E. coli and methyciline resistant Staphylococcus aureus. MRSA showed sensitivity for Ricinus communis..." http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23811466

6. "...RESULTS: Among the tested formulas, ethanol extract of THR-SK010 consisting of four herbs: Curcuma longa L., Areca catechu L., Oryza sativa L., and Garcinia mangostana L., was found to possess promising antibacterial activities with MIC90 of 4?µg mL(-1) against MRSA isolates. This ethanol extract offered the highest anti-inflammatory activity as well as DPPH and hydroxyl radical scavenging activities..." http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23363309

7. "...CONCLUSIONS: Dendrobenthamia capitata, Elsholtzia rugulosa, Elsholtzia blanda, Geranium strictipesPolygonum multiflorum and betulinic acid demonstrate promising anti-MRSA potential." http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18804522
