MSSA Infection and How it s Contracted

MSSA infection, which is also known as Methicillin Sensitive Staphylococcus Aureus, is a disease that we see popping up more and more these days. It's particularly dangerous and scary for a number of reasons. The first reason is because it is most commonly contracted while at hospitals, when a person is often in a weakened condition. The second reason it's scary is because it's resistant and sensitive to powerful antibiotics, making it especially tricky and difficult to eradicate. MRSA and MSSA are virtually the same disease, with minor differences, because they both are antibiotic resistant and generally are contracted at hospitals. There are many testimonials online of persons who have contracted one of these diseases while at a hospital. The most famous case of this is the actress Leslie Ash, who found herself paralyzed once an MSSA infection attacked her spinal tissue, which was introduced through an epidural shot.

Staph infection can invade the body through a number of channels. Most commonly, it inhabits the soft tissues of the nasal cavity, the respiratory tract, as well as open wounds. Depending on the area infected, staph will often manifest itself as red bumps which ultimately grow into painful boils. Fever and rashes often accompany the boils. When MSSA is introduced into either a wound, or else into healthy tissue somewhere inside the body from either shots or surgery, the symptoms and effects of the disease may be enhanced. Paralysis and nerve damage is a common side effect, along with symptoms of lasting pain in and around the area where the staph infection occurred. After MSSA infects the body in a specific region of tissue, it begins to grow and becomes very difficult to eradicate. Often large portions of tissue must be cut away and heavy doses of antibiotics.

If you're sitting at home and think you might have an MSSA infection, go through a checklist to see whether or not your symptoms line up. MSSA and MRSA are known for growing and spreading from hospitals, so the very first thing you need to ask yourself is have you been inside of a hospital within the last 2 months? If you answered no, you can also contract MSSA infection through a few other sources as well. If you answered yes, then what did you go to the hospital for? Was there surgery involved? If yes, then the MSSA will probably be inhabiting the area where the procedure took place. If you went to the hospital with an injury and the injury isn't healing well, you should seek immediate medical assistance. There are a number of other risk factors besides persons who have been recently in the hospitals. Persons who have an increased risk factor are college students living in dorms, persons swimming in coastal waters, prison inmates, soldiers living in close quarters, people around livestock, children, and the elderly

* Note: MSSA and MRSA infections are considered by all to be extremely dangerous. If there's any reason that you think you may have this disease, you should seek immediate medical attention.

Now I'm not usually one who promotes fear of disease. From my studies and research into natural health, I've learned that when the body has the right vitamins, minerals, nutrients, and habits, the body is very well equipped to fight diseases of all kinds. But with MSSA infection, this isn't necessarily the case. MSSA and MRSA are inadvertently and artificially enhanced by medical science, making them especially dangerous to the body. In the case of MSSA infection, do your very best to steer clear of it.

What is Magnesium Toxicity
? In my study of magnesium and its role in the body, I was surprised to read about the number of different people who thought they might be suffering from magnesium toxicity, especially when many studies are showing the opposite, that people at large are suffering from a magnesium deficiency. Suffering from magnesium toxicity is very improbably for healthy persons, except in specific cases of things like kidney malfunction of infection. So if you're thinking that you might have magnesium...
