Oregano Oil

Updated: Mar 12


I am having some stomach issues since 2 weeks ago now. I woke up with a pain on the left side of my abdomen two Sundays ago which I first attributed to overdoing it while exercising, but it progressively got worse and worse over the following week and I had to go and see the doc. I am having a hard time eating due to the pain, and it is bothering me while I practise yoga or exercise. 

My pole dancing teacher, Rosa, suggested that I try oregano oil. Not essential oil but oregano oil. I had never heard of it as a treatment for stomach issues or anything else for that matter but reading up about I learned that it is very helpful in a number of conditions and just good for general health. I started taking it two days ago, so far so good, although I am still in pain, it is not as strong as it was a week ago, but it is still a nagging dull pain.



Oregano oil has a surprisingly strong, pungent taste: although not essential oil it feels a lot like taking the essential oil. It must be diluted in a carrier oil and a bit of water to take it orally. I use olive oil or coconut oil. Its many benefits include helping digestion, cleanses the body of toxins and viruses, relieves aches and pain. I am also giving it to my mum to see if it helps her. The benefits of this oil are quite amazing the more I read up a bout it:

Antibacterial 

Antiviral

Antiparasitic

Antifungal

Anti-allergenic 

Anti-inflammatory 

Promotes digestion 

Helps regulate menstruation and hormonal imbalances
