How to Take Monolaurin
It is hard for us to not be too excited. We know we have the best, most complete natural protocol for MRSA available. But, how do we balance giving the facts without appearing to brag? Simple – just get people healthy!
Monolaurin will kill all bad bacteria – some of it very quickly! So, we want to give the body plenty of time to eliminate the dead bacteria and toxins to avoid herx reactions (below). If you have not been on antibiotics recently, we recommend building up to a full dose over a couple weeks. A full dose for an average weight (170#) adult would be 3 scoops (3 tsp.) a day.
1. Instead, we’d suggest to start with 1 scoop (1 tsp.) a day, with meals, for 5 days. Extra sensitive people can start with even less.
2. If there are no reactions, increase to 2 scoops, 1 scoop in the morning and 1 scoop in the evening, for another 5 days.
3. Again, if there are no reactions, increase to 3 scoops spread out during the day. (Many people that have had antibiotics recently are able to start with a full dose.)
If there is a herx reaction (below), simply stop for a day or two. The reactions go away pretty quickly. Then, start up again at a lower dose and slowly build up again.
Possible Problem #1: Herxheimer (Herx reactions):
Monolaurin is very good at killing bacteria and Bio-Fibrin in dissolving biofilms. So, as we said, we recommend taking a few weeks, or more, to build up to a full dosage (3 tsp. for the average adult). When you kill bacteria and dissolve biofilms, the normal job of the liver, kidneys, and skin is to filter the dead bacteria and toxins out of the blood.
Occasionally, the bacteria are killed faster than the body can filter them out (or, a person with an extra sensitive body). The body sees the dead cells as an invasion and calls up the immune system. Then the person can experience some ‘gunky’ flu-like symptoms often called ‘herx’ reactions.
One bottle of a Body Detox can help reduce these symptoms by helping our organs be more efficient in removing the dead bacteria. Perhaps even better, a person can simply go at a more gradual buildup speed up to a full dose. This gives the organs plenty of time to filter the first rush of bacteria and toxins out of the body.

Possible Problem #2: Low Stomach Acid
It is not common but about 1 out of 9 people (especially as we age) have low stomach acid.
That is why some people have trouble digesting some foods as they age that they had no problem with when younger. If people are not getting the results they should, or see any pellets in their stools, low stomach acid is often the problem.
Fortunately, it is pretty easy to solve. Three of the nationally known naturopathic doctors we follow all, independently, had the same recommendation.

Biofilm Enzymes – for Difficult Cases of MRSA
Researchers at Thomas Jefferson University confirmed that MRSA staph is one of the bacteria that can develop biofilms. Biofilms are defensive protective shields – a kind of “mucus” around a group of MRSA bacteria. This biofilm is held together with a protein fiber called fibrin.
Antibiotics and monolaurin can kill some free roaming bacteria in the body but they cannot penetrate these biofilm shields to get to the bacteria behind them.
The Biofilm Enzymes Answer…
Out of several thousand enzymes, there are five that are excellent at dissolving the particular protein that fibrin is made of. After years of effort, we have found that a blend of those five enzymes helps dissolve the biofilm shields so the Monolaurin can get to the bacteria and eliminate it.
The Biofilm Enzymes blend (with clinical studies backing each enzyme) include:
Serrapeptase – Nattokinsae – Bromelain
Grapefruit Seed Extract – Papain
Not only do they directly dissolve the fibrin that holds the biofilms together, they also increase our body’s own fibrinolytic enzyme, plasmin to join the effort! Adding Biofilm Enzymes has helped tremendously to solve the tough MRSA cases.

Foundation – for Overall Body Health
Your body can be very effective in resisting bacterial infections – including MRSA. You can boost your immune system with a good multi-nutrient Foundation. It gives your body the nutrients it needs to be healthy and to have a good immune system. Look for the best multivitamin, mineral, herbs and nutrient supplement, it’s worth it!
