Fight Infections Naturally with Oregano Oil

Oct. 31, 2018; by Briana McDonald (Silver Bulletin e-News) Oregano oil is one of the most powerful plant derived oils that rival mainstream antibiotics when treating different types of infections. Like Colloidal Silver, it not only fights off bacteria but viruses and fungus as well. With cold and flu season around the corner, it’s good to know that you can fight infections naturally with oregano oil.

Carcavol in the essential oil of oregano is so potent that it has been the focus of over 800 studies (1) and it has been shown to reduce or even reverse bacterial infections, parasites, fungal infections, viruses, candida, allergies, tumors, and inflammation in the body. It even helps treat digestive issues like GERD and heartburn. How does it do this? The active compounds Thymol and Carvacrol in the plant work together to treat a variety of ailments.
According to the Faculty of Pharmacy at the University of Messina in Italy, Carvacrol, a monoterpenic phenol, has emerged for its wide spectrum activity extended to food spoilage or pathogenic fungi, yeast and bacteria as well as human, animal and plant pathogenic microorganisms including drug-resistant and biofilm forming microorganisms.  (2)
Oregano Oil Vs. Broad Spectrum Antibiotics 
When it comes to fighting off infections, trust me you don’t want to use a prescription antibiotic. Most of these issues can be handled with natural options such as Oregano Oil or Colloidal Silver.  The issue with broad spectrum antibiotics is they kill a wide swath of both good and bad bacteria in the body and our bodies NEED good bacteria! These broad spectrum antibiotics are unfortunately even prescribed for things they do not even help with such as fungal or viral infections. This is where using Oregano Oil or Colloidal Silver is a much safer and effective approach as they attack both viruses, fungi, and bacteria while doing very little damage to healthy bacteria in the body. Studies show that Carvacrol targets the outer membrane of gram-negative bacteria and increases membrane permeability, thereby causing depletion of harmful bacteria.
Oregano Oil Reduces Viral Activity 
 A 2014 study was conducted to test the efficacy of Carvacrol’s antiviral properties against murine norovirus (MNV). The study concluded that Carvacrol can significanly reduce viral activity within 15 minutes of exposure! (3)
 
Oregano Oil Clinically Proven to Treat Antibiotic Resistant Bacteria 
 A 2018 study set out to test the effectiveness of Oregano Oil, Rosewood oil and cumin against antibiotic resistant bacteria. The results showed that 7 compounds were identified from the three essential oils to fight off the bacteria but Carvacrol took the crown being the most antimicrobial compound identified with minimum inhibitory concentrations ranging .99-31.62mM. (4)
Oregano Oil Treats Parasites 
 One study found that when patients whose stools tested positive for enteric parasites supplemented with 600 mg of oregano for six weeks many experienced significant gastrointestinal symptoms. There was a complete disappearance of Entamoeba hartmanni in four cases and endolimax nana in another. Gastrointestinal symptoms improved in seven of the eleven patents who had tested positive for blastocystis hominis which causes nausea, gas, bloating, and abdominal pain. (5)
So not only can you fight infections naturally with Oregano Oil, but you can reduce inflammation, heal digestive issues, and even kill off parasites!
