If you were facing death from a flesh-eating bacteria, would you make the same amazing gamble that Larry did?

Here’s Larry’s story.

Larry was in a place you or I would never want to be. Flesh eating bacteria had infected a wound in his foot. And the stinking, rotting infection was starting to creep into his leg.

If that wasn’t bad enough, the bacteria were the kind that did not respond to normal or high powered antibiotics. In the hospital his doctors had tried everything – but the wound wasn’t going away.

If the bacteria made their way into Larry’s bloodstream, then it would be only a matter of time until he was septic. And death would be certain.

Best case scenario? Larry would be lucky to walk away with his life, and would be giving up most (if not all) of his foot – and maybe even part of his leg- in the process.

Luckily – Larry kept his foot and his life. He overcame the flesh eating bacteria in a matter of days, and was out of the hospital, foot intact.

But how did he do it? And could information like this save your life, or the life of one of your loved ones, one day?

Larry did something that people a hundreds of years might have done. Back in an era before antibiotics – back even before anyone knew bacteria existed…And it saved his life.

The story gets better if you understand a few details about Larry.

#1 Larry is real. I changed his name to keep his privacy. I met Larry in my office during a consultation. I found him so fascinating we talked for almost an hour. This adventure is one of the things we spoke about – among others.

#2 Larry isn’t young, young, he is young, old. He was in his late 60s/early 70s when the infection happened – which some might think would make him more vulnerable to disease – but Larry was young acting, and fit. He regularly cycled, and his aerobic capacity was high.

While being aerobically fit doesn’t always help your immune system – exercising too much can actually help you get sick – let’s say Larry doesn’t fit the picture of someone who is 70ish.

#3 Larry is a do it yourself kind of guy. It will help you understand how he could be laying in a hospital bed, and still take treatment for his flesh eating bacteria into his own hands.

Who does that? Larry did. And this is how he did it.

He called a friend and told her to go to the grocery store…
