    Please try this for Aimee…

    Aimee’s body and blood is too Acidic right now… She needs to drink Alkalized water… pills what ever way they can… through IV, mouth…. please do this right away
    I bet her PH is very acidic right now, due to all the anti biotics.
    Bacteria can not live in an Alkaline environment. and I mean Period.
    So that’s why she is getting worse… because all the medicine is making her body and blood acidic…Stop the medicines…
    Alkalize… alkaline or what ever they call it. neutralize the PH in her blood and body… then give her at least 200 billion or even more probiotics..
    I called the news station… I called the hospital… no one could help… they told me to post it her…
    I hope you get this messege before it’s too late… I am praying for all the victims.

      your proposed treatment (eg “drink Alkalized water… pills what ever way they can… through IV, mouth… Alkalize… alkaline or what ever they call it. neutralize the PH in her blood and body… then give her at least 200 billion or even more probiotics”) has little, if any effect on necrotizing fasciitis.

      Best treatment option is surgical debridement of the affected areas, dosing with strong antibiotics (like clindamycin) to kill off the offending organism, which could very possibly be Clostridium perfringens which thrives in an anaerobic, oxygen-free environment.

    please do that… don’t listen to doctors… they only Know one way and that’s what making it worse… go to a health food store get the Alkaline drops and dilute it with water and have her drink it…
    Bacteria and disease can only feed off of acidic environment… God I hope you guys get this email and take action.
    It doesn’t hurt to try… it won’t hurt her… trust me… it’s just alkaline… you can test her PH level by puting a PH strip in her mouth or dipping it in her urine.

      “get the Alkaline drops and dilute it with water and have her drink it” won’t do much after passing through the stomach and intestines other than make the gastrointestinal tract basic. There is no proof that making the entire human body less acidic is beneficial to treating necrotizing fasciitis.

      Even though it is true that pH can be tested by placing pH strips in the mouth or urine, it does not serve any purposeful meaning other than tell you if the saliva or urine is basic or acidic. Depending on the pH of the most recently consumed foods, the pH of mouth can be either basic or acidic. The urine is normally slightly acidic.

      What’s more important and more of diagnostic value is to do an arterial blood gas analysis, which tells you the actual pH of the blood along with other concentrations of substances in the blood itself (as opposed to checking pH of oral cavity and urinary excretion).

      I’m sure Mojdeh dantrassy meant well for you, but please do seek professional opinions on what is the best treatment option.

      Stay strong Aimee. There’s more people having faith in you than you realize.

    Amy, your strength amazes me, You have outer beauty, inner beauty
    and your faith is astonishing. Today I was feeling depressed and then found you on face book, though I have been following you.
    You are truly my hero as you are going through so much more than I have a reason to be sad for. I pray for you and you deserve all that life can give you

    Baking Soda to alkalinize your blood–bacteria can’t live in an alkaline environment. My 80 year old mother had a staph & strep infection. The only thing that got it under control was 1 tsp. of baking soda in 8 oz. of water every other day and monitoring her Ph levels.

    Aimee,You are so inspirational to me. To be able to overcome this disease at the rate you have is an outstanding defeat that merits the attention and love you are receiving. 😉 You deserve all that is good and beautiful. I too was hospitalized for a while for something different; yet freighting around the same time you were. After reading your story, it gave me so much hope! My twin sister and I admire your courage. We wish you the best. God bless you eternally.
