DoTERRA’s OnGuard and MRSA

November 7, 2011 | By | 13 Replies More

MRSA is a superbug that terrifies the professional medical community because they can’t seem to find an effective means of managing and killing the bug.  MRSA stands for methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus.  MRSA is bacteria resistant to ALL current drugs.  Just Google “MRSA” and view the images. You will see the horrible effects of this bacteria.  I won’t post those photos because they make me too queasy.

Here are some interesting statistics for you to chew on.

1/20 contracts MRSA in hospitals

3/4 patients rooms are contaminated with MRSA

More than 60% of all staphylococcus infections are MRSA related.

2 billion people carry Staphylococcus and 52 million carry MRSA.

MRSA used to just be something you might pick up in the hospital, but it has become something that has spread can be acquired in our communities now.

Natural News recently published an interesting article that you should take time to read through.  In it they stated that

“There’s more risk for MRSA to become invasive in the presence of flu or other viruses,” study leader Adrienne Randolph, MD, MsC, of the Division of Critical Care Medicine at Children’s Hospital Boston. Said in a statement to the media. “These deaths in co-infected children are a warning sign.” He added this is especially alarming given the rising rates of MRSA infections being carried widely among children.

“It is not common in the U.S. to lose a previously healthy child to pneumonia,” Randolph said. “Unfortunately, these children had necrotizing pneumonia eating away at their tissue and killing off whole areas of the lung. They looked like immunocompromised patients in the way MRSA went through their body. It’s not that flu alone can’t kill – it can – but in most cases children with flu alone survived.”

What you might find relieving is that the blend of essential oils from doTERRA called On Guard™ has been found effective in killing MRSA.  This is the power of tapping into the power of plants and their defense mechanisms that have made them able to resist disease and death for hundreds of thousands of years.  Essential oils give us the the most concentrated healing benefits in a pure and non-invasive way.
Jennifer Eddins, SM(ASCP) is conducting ongoing research using doTERRA’s On Guard blend against MRSA.  So far laboratory studies have shown results that would be helpful to you as you clean your house this winter and protect your family from bugs and viruses.  She found that by using 3 drops of On Guard in 32oz tap water in a spray bottle that was then sprayed and dried on surfaces made the MRSA organism not viable for 7 days, making your weekly cleaning a good thing to protect your family.
An additional study that your  might find interesting was published by PubMed in November 2010 about the effectiveness of OnGuard against the flu virus, particularly swine flu, found not only did it kill the virus inside the cell (which drugs and antibiotics cannot penetrate the cell membrane like oils can) but On Guard reduces viral replication by up to 90%.
On Guard is a blend of Wild Orange, Clove bud, Cinnamon, Eucalyptus and Rosemary.  I use On Guard all the time!  I put a drop or two in my OJ in the morning and enjoy a drink that reminds me of the holiday drink Wassel and is an easy way to get the oil immediately into my body systems and protect me.  I have On Guard hand soap in the bathrooms and even us it for my toothpaste to kill all those germs in my mouth. Currently I am using it to counter act a group of cold sores that were threatening to attack my lips yesterday.  I simply apply some to my lips as if it was lip gloss a couple of times a day.  My lips should be all cleared up in about 24 hours.
I would love to share more with you about On Guard and other Essential Oils.  If you have any more questions, contact me about this oil blend and how to use the power of plants and their essential oils to protect your family.  Make sure to register for my Weekly Virtual Classes as free tool to learn the variety of ways these oils can bring you greater health.

    I am currently trying DoTerra On-Guard for recurring M.R.S.A. Infection that is active @ this time. I have been taking it for only 3 days and started seeing great results within 24 hours. I have had many prescriptions of Bactrim DS/Doxycycline/& Cephalexin. It either doesn’t completely clear up the M.R.S.A. or when it does, the infection comes back somewhere else on my skin within a month. I am anxious to see if On-Guard can protect me long term from M.R.S.A. I am interested in any additional information you may have about the long term benefits of On-Guard.It would be so great to no longer have to deal with expensive Emergency Room bills and the pain of M.R.S.A. itself, and having it lanced and drained. So far it is proving to be much faster and more effective than the antibiotics and ointments. Thank You. I am A believer !!

      Hi Deb, I contracted MRSA during a hospital stay in 2008 and have struggled with infections ever since. I have a compromised immune system due to an auto-immune disorder. Time after time, I have either gone to the ER or taken rounds of Bactrim for 10 days at a time to clear the infection. Now, if I notice redness around an ingrown hair or any kind of a skin irritation, I will put OnGuard on twice a day until the irritation and redness goes away. I can now say I haven’t been on Bactrim for a year. It has changed my life.

        Thanks for sharing your story Lindy. Isn’t it great to have the support of these essential oils for our body! Glad you are using and loving them!

    MRSA can be treated by some antibiotics, just not those in the methicillin family. One great antibiotic that wil lake care of MRSA is Bactrium.

    I have read this same article on countless doTerra IPC pages and I am an IPC but also a former teacher. You cannot document results like you are doing with out footnoting where these study results can be examined & read & the validity of the study. I am so frustrated after 3 hours scouring the internet I cannot find one article. It makes us look unreliable and unprofessional when someone like to say “read about it” and you have no clue where you are getting your info. The article was extremely difficult to truly comprehend or present to a joe shmoe and this study out of a hospital in Colorado is non existent. Then there’s the list of other hospitals that use doTerra products but there is no proof or link to how they are implementing. Links to documentation equals professionalism and credibility. I’d love some answers and you are not the first website I’m planting this question. I’m sincere in wanting some documentation.

      Hi Adrienne,

      So sorry this is so difficult for you. I am no expert in breaking down the details of every study. I would refer you to to see more of a simple synopsis of these studies. If you, as a Wellness Advocate, are interested in more help and detail ask to communicate with the Scientific Advisory Board Members at doTERRA. Best of luck! ~tamarah
