Oil of oregano
is an amazing natural health medicine for many health issues.
The current economic crisis has meant, many have to rely on their own knowledge because they can’t afford traditional medical care.
Many people would rather use natural cures to begin with because they’re aware of the many side effects of pharmaceuticals.
Oil of oregano
is probably the best single ingredient you should have in your medicine chest.
In order to take care of your own health, you need the necessary tools.
The toxic burden of our industrial society is a big enough reason to gain this valuable knowledge. Now we face the toxic results of the BP oil catastrophe, entering the air, water and food chain. The truth is, we don’t have to be victims. We have the ability and means to protect ourselves.
All it takes is education, being committed and taking the action necessary to maintain our health.
Oil of Oregano
is one of those wonderful natural cures available to us from nature.
Oregano oil (Origanum vulgare) is well known in Greece and Crete for its ability to slow down food spoilage. With its “anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-parasitic and anti-oxidant activity,” oregano oil is the all purpose herb. The two herbs thyme and marjoram, sold in America, are labeled incorrectly as oregano, and have little comparison to wild oregano’s miraculous healing properties.
It also has strong antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties and is a great product to use if you suffer from CFS and/or fibromyalgia. This is not regular oregano, but a wild form. (wild mountain oregano, vulgare species) It’s only recently become available in Canada.
We’ve all enjoyed oregano with our food, but how much more would you enjoy it if you realized just how wonderful oregano was to your health? You’d probably sprinkle it on more than just your pizza and spaghetti…
