4 Year Old with Boils
Turmeric is great in the beginning for boils, But, please note that it does take more doses more frequently once they continue to come back in time !I have been getting them 2004 and each summer they get harder and harder to treat ! The first year they were surgically removed because they were so deep and also treated with an antibiotic called Minocycline. This helped temporarily, but once when I was out of town on a weekend, and unable to find medical attention, I tried the turmeric cure from this site. It was miraculous for about 9 mos., but then they came back the next summer extremely aggressive !! It took me larger doses,(2 heaping tablespoons 3 times daily), and they were taking longer to heal, or would just stay down in size without going away for weeks. That much turmeric will have your stomach feeling quite sick along with diarhia !! I finally went back to the doctor and back on the Minocycline, but it also took longer than the last time using it to clear up the staph infection. My son is almost 4, and he too suffers with them, but his immune system is much stronger than mine. He is autistic and the taste of the turmeric will make him vomit, so when he gets one coming out, I just cook something for him with the turmeric in it ! Preferably something in red gravy, (like spagetti & meat sauce). He has never been on antibiotics and I'm trying to keep it that way, but as soon as the turmeric cures one of his boils, another one surfaces in another place on his little body. The doctor told me that it is getting so out-of-hand that pretty soon there will be nothing they can do for it. He told me that the staph that is out there now is a product from our own modern medicine - a combination of many antibiotics produced that have built up a resistency and immunity to everything they have to fight it. It is a growing and most aggresive bacteria that becomes increasingly immune to anything. Sorry to say it, but he may very well be right. I wish the turmeric would continue to work for me, but the staph is starting to get immune to it as well. Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated !!"
