Dr. Joel Schlessinger recommends CLn products to fight antibiotic-resistant bacteria A recent study suggests antibiotic-resistant bacteria are commonly found on household surfaces. The “superbug,” known as MRSA, has been a problem in hospitals and nursing homes for a long time. Recent findings suggest these bacteria, which are resistant to antibiotics including penicillin, have also started cropping up in residential homes.

MRSA’s antibiotic resistance poses a problem for the industry, Dr. Joel Schlessinger explains.

MRSA bacteria can cause life-threatening skin infections as well as severe conditions like pneumonia and bloodstream infections. Spread through skin contact or sharing supplies like towels, this bug was often thought to be more of a threat to athletes and people living in close quarters such as military barracks or prisons.

Many professionals like Dr. Joel Schlessinger believe this superbug has spread throughout the population because of antibiotic misuse. When bacteria are exposed to an antibiotic but survive, they can quickly become resistant to that drug.

“The problem is that many soaps actually contain antibiotics, which can lead to bacterial resistance,” Dr. Joel Schlessinger says.

Dr. Joel Schlessinger says proper hygiene can help prevent the spread of MRSA.

The best way to help prevent the spread of MRSA is to practice good hygiene around those who have come in contact with the bacteria. Use bleach to clean surfaces they have touched. Bleach is a natural antibacterial that eliminates germs and bacteria without the worsening of antibiotic resistance. It’s also a good idea to wash the person’s bedding and clothes in warm water.

To keep your skin clean, Dr. Joel Schlessinger suggests cleansing with CLn products.

“CLn, which contains bleach, is one of the few antibacterial agents that doesn’t lead to the worsening of our antibiotic crisis in America,” he says.

I had a bacterial infection on my neck and bought the CLn shampoo and body wash and it worked cleared up infection along w/ an antibiotic Joel prescribed to clear up mrsa! Very nice products! Still using them so I know I remain MRSA Free!
