Down in the Trenches
I spent the better part of 1995-1996 investigating the therapeutic values of wild Oregano, and publishing the first book on its health benefits called, The Cure is in The Cupboard. I call wild Oregano nature”s most versatile essential oil. Oregano oil is a power-house for:
Fighting yeast, fungus (skin and blood-born)
Knocking out allergies, hay fever and sinusitis
And stopping infections (cold and flu).
I learned about its strength first hand, as I suffered from a blood-born fungal infection that incapacitated me several years ago. I had to close my practice and move home to live. I tried everything, and ultimately discovered the potent antiseptic activity of wild Oregano. It put me back on my feet. Of late, the anti-allergic feedback I have received has been most impressive. Although the oil of Oregano has been used since ancient times to fight yeast, fungal and viral infections, Oregano”s ability to wipe out allergies, runny nose, sinusitis and nasal drip has taken me by surprise.
Anti Allergy Properties
Please understand, you are not going to get any better eating a pizza! Wild, crude, mountain grown Oregano (from the Mediterranean) is the — only kind — that is naturally rich in ”Carvacrols Flavonoids and Terpenes” which give the Oregano its tremendous strength. Carvacrol is a natural phenol which contains powerful anti microbial activity. Flavonoids provide natural antiseptic properties, and Terpenes (long chain hydrocarbons) are natural anti-inflammatory agents.
I consider Carvacrol, Flavonoids and Terpenes to be mother nature”s antihistamines and decongestants. In my book, I review a case whereby a man, 6 foot 4 inches and 250 pounds, was suffering in his own secretions (from an allergy attack). Four drops of the Oil of Oregano put him back on his feet in five minutes! The oil I use and recommend, made by North American Herb and Spice Company has over 70% Carvacrol by weight. That is a abundance of healing power. Please beware of cheap imitations, only this brand is 100% pure, wild Oregano oil. It may be use internally and topically. Other brands of Oregano oil are often unsafe and adulterated.
Modern Uses of Oregano
As we enter into another allergy season every potential sufferer needs to know that wild Oregano is capable of halting your next allergy in its tracks. I use it to fight allergies, and you should too, because it”s effective, reliable and safe. Over the counter drugs have side effects, and they are not your only option. This season and try the natural approach first. Don”t be a victim of allergies anymore. Wild Oregano overpowers them every time.
How to Use Oregano
Keep in mind, wild Oregano also knocks out fungus and infection. There are two ways to take the wild Oregano: in the form of capsules (Oregamax Capsules), and oil (Oil of Oregano). Use the Oregano Oil topically to fight fungal infections of the nail bed, athlete”s foot, psoriasis and other stubborn skin disorders. And always take the crushed herb (Oregamax Capsules) internally (A few daily) to attack the infection from every angle.
The Oil of Oregano may also be used internally (taken under the tongue), to infiltrate the body with Oregano”s antiseptic healing properties. I call wild Oregano Oil a ”Medicine Chest in a Bottle,” and every medicine chest is incomplete without this versatile essential oil
