Oregano Oil Escape the Flu and Cold Season

Oregano Oil Escape the Flu and Cold Season

Nature's herbal apothecary takes care of this ( Flu and Cold Season ) nuisance with the most powerful cold buster ever, oil of Oregano from wild grown Mediterranean Oregano. As an immune stimulant, oil of Oregano is king of herbs as proven by Polish researchers who tested 70 varieties of plants and found Oregano to be the one with the most significant immune boosting powers. The efficacy of Oregano does not stop at boosting the immune system. It is possibly the most powerful antibiotic, antiviral and antifungal remedy available.

As most of us know, an antibiotic prescription given at the doctor's office is useless against viral infection, which is what causes colds and the flu. The flu virus mutates constantly. Although labs cook up an antiviral cocktail containing several previous flu viruses, chances are slim that those same viruses will attack again and thus your bodywill not have resistance to new ones lurking around the corner. In addition to that, the vaccine may be contaminated with toxic mercury or aluminum, which is added as a preservative. The stress caused by the actual shooting of this polluted concoction directly into the bloodstream can greatly hamper your immune system.

Daily doses (three drops three times a day) oil of Oregano will help keep your immune system strong enough to fight off most cold and flu viruses. Should one sneak in, conduct a full frontal attack by getting lots of sleep, drinking plenty of water and taking frequent dosages of oregano oil to stop it in its tracks. Hepatitis and Herpes are two other viral infections which have responded well to treatment with oil of Oregano.

oil of Oregano also works as an antibiotic, meaning it doesn't just protect against viruses but also against bacteria. It has been shown in lab tests to be as effective as one of the strongest antibiotics (Vancomycin) in killing staph, E.coli and other bacteria. It does this without creating mutant strains of drug resistant bacteria and it has none of the debilitating side effects of pharmaceutical antibiotics. For AIDS and cancer patients, diabetics and those bedridden in hospital, oregano oil is a defensive weapon against potentially deadly bacteria. It is easy to take and effective against many known forms of pathogens.

North Americans suffer from a virtual epidemic of candida infection. Candida albicans is a form of fungus that occurs naturally in the gut. Antibiotics kill some of the good flora in the intestinal tract. This allows the candida to multiply unchecked. Candida feeds on sugar and refined grains. With the North American diet being high in both of these, candida quickly multiplies and ends up in the bloodstream. Nail fungus, thrush, skin disorders, vaginal yeast, allergies and chronic fatigue are only a few of the annoying symptoms caused by candida infection. Oregano oil is also effective to treat fungal infections.

Oil of Oregano is a powerful antiparasitic. In studies done in Mexico it was shown to be effective against giardia, a water borne parasite that our Ontario readers may be familiar with.
Pinworms and other nasty creatures that often inhabit our intestines are subject to termination by oregano oil.

Teeth and gums benefit greatly from oral application of oil of Oregano since it destroys the bacteria that form plaque and cause gum disease. You may put a drop or two under the tongue and then swish it around in your mouth before swallowing or put a drop on your toothbrush when you clean your teeth.

Inflammation is a component of not only of many infections but also diseases, especially those involving joints and tendons. An article published in Phytotherapy Research describes how oil of Oregano superseded anti-inflammatory drugs in reversing pain and inflammation and is nearly as powerful as morphine as a pain killer. It has the ability to penetrate the skin and reach as far as the sinovial fluid in joints. It may help to alleviate arthritis, carpal tunnel, sports injuries and even backache. Rub the oil on the skin to cover the affected area in addition to taking it internally.

Do not confuse the medicinal wild Mediterranean oregano for what is sometimes called oregano in the marketplace. What you find on the grocery store shelf is usually Spanish marjoram and does not share the true wild oregano's therapeutic qualities. The best therapeutic oregano grows wild in the Mediterranean and has been known since Hippocrate's time to be a powerful medicinal plant.

Olive oil is used to dilute pure oil of Oregano because, in its pure form, the oil is far too caustic. This is primarily due to the predominant phenol carvacrol, which accounts for a large percentage of the composition of oregano oil. Please beware of taking the pure essential oil as it could harm you.

Recently, the FDA has started to allow vendors of oil of Oregano to make qualified statements concerning its health benefits. However, these benefits only occur when at least two tablespoons of oil are taken a day. Whether the edible oil is olive, flax seed, coconut, palm or hemp seed oil, the same intake level of two tablespoons daily is required to produce results. As an average dose of oregano oil is about nine drops (or one third of a milliliter) per a day, do not expect to derive any benefit from the edible oil that it is mixed with. Do ensure that the edible oil is fresh and certified organic to remove the possibility of rancidity or pesticide contamination. If you have a health challenge, you certainly don't need further assault from chemical contamination.

Skin Infections
Oil of Oregano can be applied directly onto the skin to treat itches, skin infections, and irritated gums, but only if it has been diluted.
