In a study done on 12 mice injected with candida albicans and published in the Journal of Molecular and Cellular Biochemistry. All six of the mice fed oil of oregano survived more than 30 days with no sign of Candida infection, while all six mice that were fed just olive oil died within seven days.
Oregano scientific studies:
1. Contains Powerful Phenols:
These powerful phenols have anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-parasitic, and anti-fungal properties.
2. Anti-Oxidant & Anti-Inflammation Properties:
Inflammation is caused as a result of the body’s natural response to toxins, injury and infections and can cause degeneration of the body’s systems.
3. Good Anti-Oxidant
4. Lowers Risk of Heart Diseases
5. Prevents Cancer:
The antimutagenic and anticarcinogenic effects of oregano oil help in prevention of cancer.
6. Improves Body’s Defense Mechanism
Oregano oil should be taken up to 5 days to totally eliminate the symptoms. In what I’ve researched, a two week regime is the max, then give your body a two week rest with plenty of probiotics (KEFIR, folks, I’m telling’ ya!!!)
7. Relieves Sinus Congestion
8. Digestive Aid & Expectorant:
Due its high content of thymol and carvacrol compounds, oregano oil is effective in calming upset stomach and aids in digestion.
What is carvacrol you ask? Well it is a monoterpenoid…why do we use big words to describe confusing words???…Well, a monoterpenoid is a class of terpene…and again, let me explain what THAT is.. terpenes are major biosynthetic building blocks within nearly every living creature. Terpenes are released by trees more actively in warmer weather, acting as a natural form of cloud seeding. The clouds reflect sunlight, allowing the forest to regulate its temperature. Some insects such as termites or swallowtail butterflies, emit terpenes from their osmeteria (fleshy organ of their larvae). They are often strong-smelling, and thus may protect the plants that produce them by deterring parasites.
10. Topical Application Agent
Thus, swollen lymph nodes, sore throat and ear infections can be cured by rubbing the oil directly on the affected area.
11. Heals Mind & Body:
Apply to the souls of the feet to be absorbed (the biggest pores in your body are on the bottoms of your feet) throughout your entire being.
