The Mediterranean diet has always been considered one of the healthiest diets. Oregano🌿, is one of the herbs used in the Mediterranean region, notably in Italian cooking, where it is commonly used in pizza🍕, pasta sauces🍝, salads🥗, marinades, and soups🍲.
Oregano is a potent herb with anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant properties. It works to kill bad bacteria and yeast in the gut microbiome so we use it to treat dysbiosis (bacterial imbalance), Candida overgrowth, Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO) and Small Intestine Fungal Overgrowth (SIFO).
It also works well for upper respiratory pathogens in the sinuses, nose, and throat. Personally, I take Oregano Oil regularly in the winter months to help defend against common respiratory viruses🦠.
Our Oregano Oil comes in capsules that are gently released in the small intestine where it can work to clean up your gut microbiome. It is generally well tolerated. If you experience a burp after taking oregano oil, it often tastes like pizza🍕, which is not a bad thing! This can be prevented by pairing the Oregano Oil with Digestive Enzyme Pro.
Over the years, I’ve seen amazing results using Oregano Oil to heal the gut microbiome. What’s amazing is this often translates to less inflammation throughout the body. For example, I have patients who choose to take Oregano Oil on a regular basis, because it helps their joint pain!
Oregano Oil can be taken once to three times a day after meals.
Here are 10 Reasons to Consider Taking Oregano Oil:
2) Irregular bowel habits
3) Chronic sinus infections
4) Frequent colds and viral respiratory infections
5) Inflammation in your body (elevated HS-CRP) or joint pain
6) Frequent yeast infections (Candida)
7) Fungal skin infections like ringworm, athlete’s foot, and jock itch
8) Sluggish metabolism
9) Skin inflammation such as acne, blemishes, or cysts
10) Chronic cough (lung inflammation)
