Flesh Eating Bacteria

Let me just weigh in on flesh eating bacteria which is thought to contain more than one bacteria, normally of the strep variety. From what I’ve read, this condition runs a common course of getting infected initially from something that is carrying the bacteria, and then the bacteria entering in the wound to a point where it goes past the area of the wound and into the body – carried by the blood system or lymph system.

I am not 100% certain on the lymph system – but it seems like a likely avenue.

Medical professionals dress the wound and send the patient along their merry way and within a day or so, the wound doesn’t feel much better. Instead, the wound area feels worse and the person feels overwhelmed by the spreading bacteria – sick. No energy. Yucky feeling and taste.

So the person returns to the medical facility and a few tests are done and the wound is re-opened to inspect. One test may reveal more infection (bacteria) than previously thought. Remember, by this time the bacteria has spread further than the initial wound.

Once the diagnosis is Flesh Eating Bacteria, everything is done to salvage what is living. Cells die quickly in this environment as the bacteria is only trying to reproduce.

My thought is that the person who is experiencing this phenomenon is probably very acidic. In other words, their blood pH is more acidic than alkaline. Studies have shown that alkaline is a tough environment for bacteria to spread. Acidic is a great environment for them to multiply and begin to take over the existent cells.

The takeaway for me is to do everything you can to become more alkaline which seems to promote a healthier body. Disease has a hard time existing in an alkaline environment.

One of the easiest ways to become more alkaline is to stay away from acidic foods and to eat more alkaline foods such as green, leafy vegetables. In addition, I’ve found that you can add 8 drops of hydrogen peroxide to your drinking water – per 32 oz or 1 liter, to alkalize the water and in turn, alkalize you. It’s barely noticeable. And if you do taste it a lot or feel the effects from it too much, drop back to 6 drops per liter, or 4 and work your way up to 8.

Thoughts? I’d like to hear from you.
