I have a solution to battle oncoming sickness. Was having a chat with a client who has been feeling rather blah lately as if she has allergies or a cold coming on. I suggested she try Oil of Oregano, which I have been using for a year or so to stave off infections. Oil of Oregano is incredibly potent antiseptic and antifungal oil that has been one of the best-kept secrets of natural medicine. You can use Oil of Oregano topically to treat acne and eczema. You can dilute it and drink with water or place directly under your tongue to kill fungus, microbes, yeast and bad bacteria in your gut. You can mix a little into a spray bottle and mist the bathroom and kitchen counter to destroy microbes.
I always take oil of Oregano on flights using a few times throughout the day to reduce chance of infection. I also take more of it when I’m somewhere where there may be a lot of germs like the gym, at a music festival, or before a race. Although I use a few drops every day for bacterial overgrowth prevention, its necessary to use more if you feel a cold coming on. I find it clears my head immediately if I have a little nasal congestion. Because It’s a bio-stimulant it can be used during a cleanse, as it assists in the cleansing process.
If this is all new news to you, here is a quote to back me up: “Researchers at the Department of Food Science at the University of Tennessee reported that, among various plant oils, Oil of Oregano exhibited the greatest antibacterial action against common pathogenic germs such as Staph, E.coli and Listeria.” - Journal of Food Protection- volume 64.
Look for a variety that is at least 70% Carvacrol, such as Wellness brand.
