Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus(MRSA)


MRSA is a type of bacterial infection that is resistant to a number of widely used antibiotics.It is caused by the bacteria known as Staphylococcus aureus (also known as staph) which is commonly found on our skin and inside the nostrils and throat, and can cause mild infections of the skin such as boils and impetigo. People tend to develop Mrsa in times of vulnerability.  Fear and anxiety states, stress, shared skin contact, poor hygiene, overcrowded living conditions, surgery and ill health are factors that may contribute to the development of MRSA.

Supporting patient's who have received a diagnosis of MRSA. 

Homeopathy isn't just symptom driven but is based on careful observation of the individual signs and symptoms as exhibited by the patient and as such:

The homeopath will need to see the wound as the different visual appearance of a wound can vary greatly from patient to patient and depending upon the stage of infection.

The homeopath will want to know how the patient is feeling in themselves -are they tired, irritable, tearful, sad, frustrated etc.  

The homeopath will need to know how the wound feels - the more descriptive you can be the better - does the wound feel tight, does it feel hot, what other sensations are there for example does it burn, ache or itch. 

Homeopathic treatment may seem to make the wound worse before it gets better.  For example the wound may get bigger, ooze more pus, break open or change colour.  This is exceptable providing you feel better in yourself, heat and pain from the wound reduces and the homeopath is monitoring you and the wound regularly. The homeopath needs to be aware if you are still taking antibiotics because these can mask the symptoms of infection around the wound such as pain and inflammation.

I take Photographs for the best record of the wound progression and I may also measure the wound.

Treatment frequency and length will vary, initially I usually see my patients twice a week because the wound can change dramatically and the remedy may need adjusting to meet new signs and symptoms as the healing progresses.

The article is titled An Alternative Approach in The Treatment of Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA), using Classical Homeopathy. We are not legally allowed to promote homeopathy as an alternative medicine in the UK but it can be classified as a complementary medicine.

It could be misconstrued that the title suggests using homeopathy to replace traditional medicine rather than complementing it.   Upon reading the case it is clear that the patient had been treated using conventional medicines but without success.  The homeopath looked at the case from a homeopathic perspective and treated accordingly.  The homeopath suggested returning to the GP (complementary), however the patient choose not too.  

The article also states that there are 5 homeopathic hospitals in the UK, sadly that is no longer the case.

Pierre Fontaine is currently a member of the society of homoepaths in north America and as such the initals after his name should read RSHOM (NA).
