The reason I use Oil of Oregano is that pharmaceutical antibiotics are toxic for me; this is an alarming situation to be in because I also have a lowered immune system due to 30 years of Environmental Illness and Multiple Chemical Sensitivities. Oregano Oil was prescribed by a doctor who is also a naturopath, in Dec. 2003. I was sent to see this man by the dentist as anti-biotics were needed to rid me of sinus infection and abscessed jaw-bone. The GP said Oregano oil was a powerful full-spectrum anti-biotic and would start to work right away and two hours after initial dose, pain was much reduced and gone by the fourth day, after 2 weeks the sinus infection and bone abscesses were gone – without adverse reactions for me! Since then I’ve effectively use oregano oil as a quick and safe anti-biotic, as a disinfectant directly on wounds and as a control for chronic roseacia. There have been unexpected results from using oregano oil: my 24 year Candida problem is nearly gone; my immune system is much stronger. I trust oregano oil as a powerful ally against disease.
