MRSA…   Gesundheitsinformation 8

MRSA Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococus Aureus is just a bacterium but its name triggers fear. The following reasons why there are no MRSA.

In all mucous membranes of our body live bacteria of the genus Staphylococcus aureus. They feed on nitrogen which they find in the form of fungi of the genus Aspergillus niger which also colonise our mucous membranes from birth. The task of the fungi is to supply the mucus cells with oxygen. They deprive it from the mucous membrane with their mycelium and dispense it to the mucus cells. Their food is the carbon of the dead mucus cells. The bacterium’s task is to limit the fungal population. Revers fungi can defend themselves against extinction by secreting an enzyme that destroys bacteria by damaging their membrane. The latter fact was discovered and antibiotics were born. The triumphant march of antibiotics seemed to be without disturbance until MRSA, ORSA, VISA, VRSA and other multi-resistant bacteria came along. What had happened?

In our large intestine Staphylococcus aureus has a second main task. Through his metabolism it splits the nitrogen-containing fiber of the plants we eat so that the vital bioflavonoids are available to us. Since the point in time it is combated with antibiotics there are health disturbances that have not existed before: irritable bowel syndrome, lactose intolerance, gluten intolerance, fructose intolerance and many types of allergies …

Staphylococcus aureus and Aspergillus niger are part of the physiological colonisation of the bronchi and pulmonary alveoli too. Due to the high nitrogen content of the mucus from the respiratory air, Staphylococcus aureus can feed on it. The balance of fungi and bacteria is maintained as on the one hand the food supply for the fungi is limited and on the other hand, the fungi due to the high oxygen supply don‘t secrete bacteria killing enzymes. As antibiotics can only be effective in the presence of this enzyme, the Staphylococcus aureus in the alveoli survives any attack by antibiotics. The reason why antibiotic fungi are nevertheless effective in the test tube lies in their lack of oxygen.

If all bacteria in the remaining body are killed by permanent and high-dose antibiotics, the Aspergillus aureus of the alveoli takes over the free space. Food in the form of fungi is there in abundance so that it can spread out fast. However, the life of a patient is not threatend by the bacterium but due to the meanwhile collapsed immune system. The reason for a breakdown of the immune system lies in the proliferation of fungi.
