Answer to subscriber's question

Question: The Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA) is in the news a lot. Could you tell the newsletter subscribers what you know about this, such as what it helps detox, etc?
And if it is beneficial, where I can get some? :-).
Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus is a type of staphylococcus bacterium that does not succumb to ampicillin and other penicillins. Staphylococci are a natural part of healthy people. Usually, they are aerobic, meaning they live on the surface exposed to air. They can be located on the skin and in nasal passages. Like some varieties of salmonella, they eat dead skin and ultra microscopic skin mites.
If an individual suffers an injury involving skin, staphylococci may colonize to consume the massive amount of damaged and killed cells and waste. Then our bodies only have to neutralize and discard staphylococci waste, which is a fraction of the damaged and dead cell-mass that we would have had to dissolve and discard. Another result of no staphylococci is that after injury, our bodies would have to mummify many injured dead cells instead of dissolving and discarding those dead cells; the result would be scar tissue. If staphlylococci did not assist in that process, we would likely develop a massive scar. Because so many people eat toxic processed and cooked food and imbalanced diets, when their skin suffers injury, they are unlikely to detoxify and heal the wound(s) properly. That could cause staphylococci to feast for months or years at the site of the wound or anywhere else on the skin where dead cells are discarded. In warm and humid climates, staphylococci are much healthier. Unless an injured person eats correctly, staphylococci may linger for years doing their job.
Regarding the issue of where you can obtain staphylococcus: They are a natural part of skins and mucous cells. They can breed easily from your dead skin. If you bathe with typical poisonous soaps and fluoridated water, you will not have many colonies of helpful staphylococci. The idea that people get sick from staphylococcal bacteria is nonsense. The problem is the injury, how toxic the wound is from foreign compounds, especially industrial chemicals, and whether we have the nutrients to properly cleanse the area of tissue damage and the waste of staphylococcus.
