“All cures start from within out and from the head down, and in reverse order as the symptoms have appeared.”
MRSA (Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus)
MRSA infection is caused by Staphylococcus aureus bacteria — often called “staph.”
We’ve all seen those nasty inmates. They are the one’s that don’t bathe, give up personal hygiene completely, and make you want to walk in the other direction. All it takes is one.
It is estimated that up to 25-30% of our population is currently infected with staph and another 1-2% is infected with MRSA. This pathogen colonizes on the body, skin, hair, groin, wounds, nose, blood, and any other body fluid of the carrier and can remain there for long periods without causing any symptoms. This carrier could be an officer or an inmate. Any carrier can spread these pathogens to others without being aware.
Inmates can spread staph amongst themselves through: overcrowding, wound drainage, hair clippers, sharing lines, towels or personal items, fingernail clippers, tweezers, tattooing, etc.
Officers can get it through direct physical contact with a staph carrier: body searches, having inmate body fluids thrown at you, having an inmate gun you (i.e. masturbation where ejaculate makes contact), sex with inmates (illegal and disgusting, but it happens), etc.
MRSA is spread by direct skin-to-skin contact, and you don‘t always have time to put glove on during a back up call. When the conditions are right for MRSA to multiply and spread officers come into risk: a reduction in your immunity, high stress levels, not getting enough sleep, or perhaps you picked up some other pathogen that suddenly wakes it up. Whatever the case, COs work in the perfect environment to constantly come into contact with one form of infection or another.
These are good strategies. At work they tell us to take basic preventative measures: gloves, PPE gear, washing your hands frequently. Be conscious of any open wounds or cuts on your hands, face, or any exposed skin. Follow your facilities rules and procedures regarding this matter.
Tips: Contaminated surfaces should be cleaned and then disinfected using an EPA-registered cleaner or a bleach solution (1/4 cup bleach to 1 gallon of water or 1 tablespoon bleach per quart of water). Handsanitizer works in a pinch.
Disinfect contaminated portable equipment, such as stethoscopes, blood-pressure cuffs, equipment handles, tourniquets, handcuffs, shackles, pagers, phones, chairs, and cell phones. Disinfect shared athletic equipment on a regular basis.
Better strategies for prevention which you can do at home are:
*Eat as many Raw Foods in your diet as possible. They help oxygenate your blood, keep you body functioning properly, and your body is better able to absorb their health giving properties from raw foods.
Many essential oils are powerful concentrates. They can protect from pathogens. Add them to coconut oil to make a body oil, or add them to your store-bought hygine items (like lotion). Never use them directly on your skin unless you know that it is a safe oil!!!!!!! And, always check to make sure you’re not allergic.
A few that are recommended for skin infections include:
-Tea Tree (safe to use directly)
If you have or have had MRSA in the past:
*Drink Colloidal Silver according to dosage suggestions on label.
Foods that you could be eating to enhance your immune system and prevent infections in your body are:
*Frements: natural home made Kim chi, sauerkraut, pickles, kefir, water kefir, kombucha, kvass, rejuvleac, ginger beer, miso, chutneys, raw vinegars, and any fermented products (nut cheese, nut yogurts, or nut milks which have been cultured. These foods should be homemade where possible and absolutley NEVER pasturized!
TIP: A cheap and easy way to increase your immunity is to create your own probiotics drink. Blend half a white cabbage with purified water until the cabbage is rendered into very small, uniform pieces. Pour into a glass container and cover to keep dust and insects out. Leave the container out on your counter for 2 to 3 days. Refrigerate. Drink ½ a cup everyday. Reserve 1 cup of the cabbage to start the next batch; it will ferment faster. eventually you will start to notice that your stools will turn a light brown color a good sign that your food has been thoroughly assimilated.
MRSA skin infections are generally minor, they can appear as pimples, boils, swollen areas, painful areas, fluid filled blisters, sores, they can have puss or some other drainage. MRSA can look like a simple infection; a trip to the hospital is always your opportunity to catch one. Sometimes MRSA is mistaken for spider bites.
Left untreated, these infections can get worse. MRSA can spread to the bloodstream or lungs, causing serious illnesses: infections surrounding tissues, abscesses, or blood, bone, or heart infections.
If you suspect a MRSA skin infection, you should seek medical attention IMMEDIATELY.
