Spinal MRSA

In March I was diagnosed with MRSA at T-12 of my spine. It was located in the lymph nodes. I am allergic to vancomycin so I was put on an IV combo of zyvox and Daptomycin. Two needle aspirations were unsuccessful. Surgery was done to "clean out" the infection. Initially all was well, however, the MRSA returned. This time it is anterior and right of L-1. Apparently either the needle attempts or the surgery damaged nerves that inervate my abdominal muscle and I now have bulging, untoned muscles increasing my waist size by no less than 3 inches. I have constant pain in my back. The most recent MRI showed 3 pockets of infection. The ID doctor discontinued the Zyvox and now I receive 100ml of daptomycin daily. If you have any information that might help please email me at

Unfortunately, MRSA is pervasive and hides wherever it wants to. I contracted it in 2007 and became very ill. After lots of doxycycline and bed rest I still tested positive. It was suggested to me, by a friend, to start taking Colloidal (Ionic) Silver. So I did. I also obtained a nebulizer and began inhaling CS. It took about six months but I got better. After a few years of taking CS I feel much better and rarely get sick. I hope that it is gone and doesn't come back. I make my own CS now and take a teaspoon daily and nebulize whenever I start feeling cold-like symptoms or allergies approaching. Educate yourself on Colloidal Silver and its ability to kill almost all pathogens. It's a beautiful gift! If you need to correspond, my email is . Identify yourself by typing MRSA Help in the subject line. May you find relief and soon!
