  • I feel like I’ve been punched in the stomach. I hope Kindra will return to full health and that her husband is still with us; I recall that he had blood oozing from his ears.

    There will be hundreds of prayers for you Kindra Arnesan, as well as for, Joannie Hughes, and Vicky Perrinand, that is just from the posters here at “”

  • Betsy S.

    So many people are thinking of you….

    Thank you for all you’ve been doing, but, for the time being, focus on your health and personal well-being.


  • Sorry. I forgot about Heather and Melissa.

    What health catastrophies must the residents be experiencing. I was ‘chilled’ to learn that the respirators are not helpful. We need to remember that in case others further away will be *gassed*.

  • Artie

    Keep up the good fight. Many prayers are with you

  • May you heal fully and quickly. My prayers are with you.

  • and I sooo appreciate all the hard work that has gone in to helping with the Gulf Oilspill.

  • Well all appreciate how you Kindra and others in your group and your region have stepped up to the plate, to play hardball with true evil. It’s just sad that some of it is in our government. I hope that you and your family and friends and neighbors make a full recovery soon.

  • Get Well Soon

    If you feel symptoms, that means the toxic gasses really got you & it’s just the tip of the medical iceburg….don’t wait until then!!

    Good luck & get well soon!!!!

  • ghana

    Thank you for risking your health and lives so that fat, stupid Americans can read how you are being killed instead of marching to help!

    I’d send you a donation or a card… excuse me had to wipe the coktail sauce of my chin and shirt. As I was saying I would send you a… cellphone hold on!
    Sorry bout that the school my kids go to is putting together a fundraiser for a new set of text books for teaching history without all of the terrorist stuff our forefathers did and I’m the treasurer!

    Anyways, Get Well Soon!

    Phucking Typical American

  • premurderedGOM


  • Good luck to all the sick persons. I do everything I can in France to make this comes out in the Press. It’s all I can do with my website : inform and put tremendous pressure on the mainstream…

    Take care and leave this area if you can.


  • Lois

    Sorry you all are so ill! Do not want you all be martyrs for this cause! Take care of yourselves… we need strong people like you to keep their voices raised! Send all your doctor bills to the White House. 🙂 Tell the hospital that Obama and BP are your insurors!
    Please get well. We are all out here keeping you in our thoughts.
    Cali loves ALL the Coastal Warriors!!

  • Dory McLaughlin

    Out here, in Arizona, Kindra has become our guide to the truth of what is happening in the Gulf. My husband has her youtube videos on his website, and she is often in our conversations…Now, she is in our prayers, more than ever, as are all of you brave souls down there in our precious Gulf states.My daughter lives in Baton Rouge, and is planning on raising her children there….if prayers can lift you up, you all will soon be floating…God bless you with a full and complete recovery….

  • TO kINDRA ARNESON,Silver protein mild will destroy STaph infections see


    yet they are in the schools lying to kids about how safe dispersants are and how yummy a topping oil is on fish. This is a total outrage and travesty

  • Girl, get some colloidal silver and start using it internally and externally. Here’s a web site that will give you the four recent medical studies proving that colloidal silver decimates staph infections, including MRSA (the antibiotic resistant one):

    Two diallyl sulphides derived from garlic inhibit meticillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus infection in diabetic mice.
    Tsao SM, Liu WH, Yin MC.
    Department of Infection, Chung Shan Medical University Hospital, Taichung City, Taiwan, Republic of China.
    The inhibitory effect of diallyl sulphide (DAS) and diallyl disulphide (DADS) against meticillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infection in diabetic mice was studied. The influence of these agents on the plasma levels of fibronectin, C-reactive protein (CRP), fibrinogen, interleukin (IL)-6 and tumour necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha), and on the activity of plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 (PAI-1), antithrombin III (AT-III) and protein C, in MRSA-infected diabetic mice was examined. To induce diabetes, mice were treated intraperitoneally with streptozotocin for 5 consecutive days. Ten clinical MRSA isolates obtained from infected patients were used in this study. Diabetic mice were infected by injecting 200 microl MRSA/PBS suspension containing 10(7) c.f.u. via the tail vein. At day 4 post-infection, 200 microl DAS or DADS was administrated twice orally with an interval of 12 h. Eight hours after each administration, the blood and organs of mice were collected. Results showed that DAS and DADS significantly decreased MRSA viability in the kidney (P<0.05), with administration of each agent twice showing a greater inhibitory effect than when given once (P<0.05). MRSA infection in diabetic mice significantly elevated the plasma levels of IL-6 and TNF-alpha (P0.05); however, DAS or DADS given twice significantly decreased the plasma levels of both IL-6 and TNF-alpha (P<0.05). DAS and DADS treatments also significantly reduced the plasma levels of CRP, fibronectin and fibrinogen (P0.05), but DAS or DADS given twice significantly increased AT-III activity (P<0.05). DADS given twice elevated protein C activity (P<0.05). MRSA infection significantly increased malondialdehyde levels in the kidney and spleen (P<0.05), and these levels were significantly decreased by treatment with DAS or DADS (P<0.05). These data suggest that DAS and DADS could provide multiple protective functions against MRSA infection in diabetic mice.

    The aim of this research was to investigate the activity of a commercial extract derived from the leaves of Olea europaea (olive) against a wide range of microorganisms (n=122). Using agar dilution and broth microdilution techniques, olive leaf extract was found to be most active against Campylobacter jejuni, Helicobacter pylori and Staphylococcus aureus [including meticillin-resistant S. aureus (MRSA)], with minimum inhibitory concentrations (MICs) as low as 0.31-0.78% (v/v). In contrast, the extract showed little activity against all other test organisms (n=79), with MICs for most ranging from 6.25% to 50% (v/v). In conclusion, olive leaf extract was not broad-spectrum in action, showing appreciable activity only against H. pylori, C. jejuni, S. aureus and MRSA. Given this specific activity, olive leaf extract may have a role in regulating the composition of the gastric flora by selectively reducing levels of H. pylori and C. jejuni.

    Prophylactic anti-infective activity of poly-[1-6]-beta-D-glucopyranosyl-[1-3]-beta-D-glucopryanose glucan in a guinea pig model of staphylococcal wound infection.

    Department of Medicine, Vanderbilt University School of Medicine, Nashville, Tennessee 37232-2605, USA.
    The judicious use of perioperative antibiotic prophylaxis reduces the infectious complications of surgery. However, increased bacterial resistance within hospitals may make antibiotic prophylaxis less effective in the future and alternative strategies are needed. New immunomodulatory agents might prevent wound infections by stimulation of the host immune system. To test this hypothesis, we administered poly-[1-6]-beta-D-glucopyranosyl- [1-3] -beta-D-glucopyranose glucan (PGG glucan), which enhances neutrophil microbicidal activity, intravenously to guinea pigs in doses ranging from 0.015 to 4 mg/kg of body weight on the day before, on the day of, and on the day after intermuscular inoculation with methicillin-resistant strains of Staphylococcus aureus and Staphylococcus epidermidis. Abscesses were identified at 72 h, and median infective doses (ID50) and statistical significance were determined by logistic regression. Guinea pigs receiving PGG glucan and inoculated with methicillin-resistant S. aureus and S. epidermidis exhibited ID50 of as much as 2.5- and 60-fold higher, respectively, than those of control guinea pigs not receiving PGG glucan. Maximal protection was observed with a dose of 1 mg of PGG glucan per kg, and efficacy was reduced at higher as well as at lower PGG glucan doses. Furthermore, a single dose of PGG glucan given 24 h following bacterial inoculation was found to be effective in preventing infection. We conclude that PGG glucan reduces the risk of staphylococcal abscess formation. Neutrophil-activating agents are a novel means of prophylaxis against surgical infection and may be less likely than antibiotics to be affected adversely by the increasing antibiotic resistance of nosocomial pathogens.

    Curcumin inhibits FtsZ assembly: an attractive mechanism for its antibacterial activity.
    Rai D, Singh JK, Roy N, Panda D.
    School of Biosciences and Bioengineering, Indian Institute of Technology Bombay, Powai, Mumbai-400076, India.
    The assembly and stability of FtsZ protofilaments have been shown to play critical roles in bacterial cytokinesis. Recent evidence suggests that FtsZ may be considered as an important antibacterial drug target. Curcumin, a dietary polyphenolic compound, has been shown to have a potent antibacterial activity against a number of pathogenic bacteria including Staphylococcus aureus, Staphylococcus epidermidis and Enterococcus. We found that curcumin induced filamentation in the Bacillus subtilis 168, suggesting that it inhibits bacterial cytokinesis. Further, curcumin strongly inhibited the formation of the cytokinetic Z-ring in B. subtilis 168 without detectably affecting the segregation and organization of the nucleoids. Since the assembly dynamics of FtsZ protofilaments plays a major role in the formation and functioning of the Z-ring, we analysed the effects of curcumin on the assembly of FtsZ protofilaments. Curcumin inhibited the assembly of FtsZ protofilaments and also increased the GTPase activity of FtsZ. Electron microscopic analysis showed that curcumin reduced the bundling of FtsZ protofilaments in vitro. Further, curcumin was found to bind to FtsZ in vitro with a dissociation constant of 7.3+/-1.8 microM and the agent also perturbed the secondary structure of FtsZ. The results indicate that the perturbation of the GTPase activity of FtsZ assembly is lethal to bacteria and suggest that curcumin inhibits bacterial cell proliferation by inhibiting the assembly dynamics of FtsZ in the Z-ring.

    Baccharis dracunculifolia D.C. (Asteraceae) is the most important plant source of the Brazilian green propolis. Since propolis is known for its antimicrobial activity, the aim of this work was to evaluate the antimicrobial activities of B. dracunculifolia and some of its isolated compounds. The results showed that the leaves extract of B. dracunculifolia (BdE) presents antifungal and antibacterial activities, especially against Candida krusei and Cryptococcus neoformans, for which the BdE showed IC50 values of 65 microg mL(-1) and 40 microg mL(-1), respectively. In comparison to the BdE, it was observed that the green propolis extract (GPE) showed better antimicrobial activity, displaying an IC50 value of 9 microg mL(-1) against C. krusei. Also, a phytochemical study of the BdE was carried out, affording the isolation of ursolic acid (1), 2a-hydroxy-ursolic acid (2), isosakuranetin (3), aromadendrin-4′-methylether (4), baccharin (5), viscidone (6), hautriwaic acid lactone (7), and the clerodane diterpene 8. This is the first time that the presence of compounds 1, 2, and 8 in B. dracunculifolia has been reported. Among the isolated compounds, 1 and 2 showed antibacterial activity against methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, displaying IC50 values of 5 microg mL(-1) and 3 microg mL(-1), respectively. 3 was active against C. neoformans, showing an IC50 value of 15 microg mL(-1) and a MIC value of 40 microg mL(-1), while compounds 4-8 were inactive against all tested microorganisms. The results showed that the BdE, similar to the GPE, displays antimicrobial activity, which may be related to the effect of several compounds present in the crude extract.

    Antimethicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) activity of ‘pacific propolis’ and isolated prenylflavanones.
    Raghukumar R, Vali L, Watson D, Fearnley J, Seidel V.
    Natural Products Research Laboratories, Strathclyde Institute of Pharmacy and Biomedical Sciences, University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, UK.
    The need to discover and develop alternative therapies to treat methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infections is timely. This study was undertaken to purify and identify some anti-MRSA constituents from propolis, a natural product from the beehive traditionally used in folk medicine for its antimicrobial properties. A crude extract of propolis originating from the Solomon Islands (‘Pacific propolis’) was screened, using an agar dilution assay, in vitro against 15 MRSA clinical isolates. Results revealed activity worthy of further investigation, and subsequent purification work on this crude extract afforded 23 fractions. Further purification of active fractions led to the isolation of compounds 1-4, characterized upon analysis of their spectroscopic data (1D- and 2D-NMR, MS) and by comparison with the literature, as the prenylflavanones propolin H (1), propolin G (2), propolin D (3), and propolin C (4). This study is the first to report the anti-MRSA activity of ‘Pacific propolis’ and the presence of prenylflavanones in the propolis sample selected. The anti-MRSA activity of propolin D (3) (MIC 8-16 mg/L) and propolin C (4) (MIC 8-32 mg/L) is reported for the first time.

  • PKJ,

    This is some kind of joke, right? Could you go back and breakdown that information? Once you understand it, I’d like to hear from you again.

  • Mary

    Kindra you are my hero. We are all pulling for you to get well.

    Here are some things to try (in plain english)

    1. Alii-C (garlic concentrate with vitamin c and flavanoids)very good antibiotic
    2. colloidal silver is powerful antimicrobial (especially topically)
    3. tumeric is a good antioxidant and good for the liver
    4. Milk Thistle extract is very good for the liver and detoxification
    5. Corn silk or nettle tea is good for irritation of kidneys or bladder.

    Try to find a good Naturopath (ND)

  • PKJ

    You don’t need to understand everything in the abstracts. Basically, it means that researches tried garlic,olive leaf extract, beta-glucan, and propolis against MRSA with success. Curcumin is the active ingredient in the herb turmeric – it also showed success against staph. Check your local health food stores for supplies.

  • i think i’m moving now, seriously

    My My My
    Whats going on here?
    I thought I was the only one who wanted the British-BP-the fucking queen exterminated for attacking the US Gulf of Mexico. Please lets buy a box of RPG and get that traitor Thad Alvin the chimpmunck
    to come to American side. This is your false flag people. Just think they are going to blow it up.
    Before you die southern folk please take a BP exec with you( a Brit is extra credit)
    Hrey they put $1,000,000,000 on Al Bushomma
    Howabout $1 just to oil board Hayward

    If you can get yourself a zapper it will help with the infections.

    Sole, made from Himalayan rock salt can neutralise heavy metals and some toxins.

    May all that is good in the Universe help and support you. It is beyond belief what is happening to you all down there.

    My thoughts and prayers (and a donation) are with you.

    Bless you for the incredible service you are doing for the people down there.
