Oil of Oregano Article

February 5th, 2009

I found an interesting article about oil of oregano recently. It further establishes the fact that doctors/pharmacists are very quick to dismiss something unless there is some extensive and formal scientific data promoting its effectiveness. However I will believe the experiences of people over scientific data any day. If something works, it works.. Here was an interesting quote in the article:

“An elderly woman who I used to treat takes a drop a day on her tongue. She used to catch every cold that came along, but now goes through the whole season without getting sick.”

Oil of oregano hit the mainstream about six years ago and was sold as a potential treatment during the SARS outbreak, the Walkerton E. coli crisis and the anthrax scares after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

But many people use it for a gamut of more common complaints, including seasonal allergies, athlete’s foot, infected splinters and toothache.

Sandra Domby, a massage therapist who also works at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine in Toronto, has been a fervent believer in oil of oregano since she first used it a year and a half ago to ward off a cold.

“If at night I feel a cold coming on, I’ll take it, and when I wake up in the morning the cold is gone,” she says.


Here is the link to the article, enjoy and comment :).
