Treatments available for Gram-Negative bacteria

What kind of symptoms are you having?  This is traditional information which I found on the web:

One of the several unique characteristics of Gram-negative bacteria is the structure of the outer membrane. The outer leaflet of the membrane comprises a complex lipopolysaccharide whose lipid portion acts as an endotoxin. If endotoxin enters the circulatory system it causes a toxic reaction with the sufferer having a high temperature and respiration rate and a low blood pressure. This may lead to endotoxic shock, which may be dangerous.

This outer membrane protects the bacteria from several antibiotics, dyes, and detergents which would normally damage the inner membrane or cell wall ( peptidoglycan). The outer membrane provides these bacteria with resistance to lysozyme and penicillin. Fortunately, alternative medicinal treatments such as lysozyme with EDTA, and the antibiotic ampicillin have been developed to combat the protective outer membrane of some pathogenic Gram-negative organisms. Other drugs can be used, namely chloramphenicol, streptomycin, and nalidixic acid.

Generic for Neggram is used for the same treatment. It also contains Nalidixic acid as the active ingredient.

Hi Huda,

As a clinical aromatherapy practitioner, I have helped several people overcome super germs using essential oils. If you are looking for possibly a natural solution, therapeutic essential oils may be something to consider. They are highly effective against antibiotic resistant bacteria like MRSA and other super germs. Because each harvest of plants that produce essential oils is different from year to year, causing the EOs to have slightly different antibacterial molecular structures, microbes cannot figure them out and become resistant. Microbes are smarter than antibiotics, but essential oils are smarter than microbes! This is exciting news for the health care facilities that are becoming inundated with super germs. If you would like a detailed booklet about how essential oils work to kill bacteria please email me at wisdom4wellness (at)aol(dot) com.

Be well,
