Why do you need oil of oregano benefits and other antibiotic alternatives?
We Set Ourselves Up to Fail
How? Our poor bodies have been overwhelmed with antibiotics in our food, our personal care items, cleaning products, and by drug companies for decades…and the worst scenario has finally happened. The bacteria all these antibacterial goods were designed to kill…they didn’t die.
While people raced to sterilize their homes, places of work, and determined to keep their children germ-free at all costs, the germs were changing. They were getting stronger and started to adapt to everything we threw at them year after year.
On top of that, we became so dependent on antibiotics that our own critical immune function has been compromised. That’s the problem facing us now.
Our Bodies Are Designed to Fight!
A challenged immune system – forced to confront germs and other foreign invaders – is a strong immune system. It’s natural process that beats whatever nasty little microbes come your way. All the soldiers enlisted in your immunity army work out and get stronger.
The human body has mechanisms in place to fight bacteria, fungus, parasites, and toxins found in the food we eat and the environment in which we live. That’s your immune system’s workout routine!
With our choices, we blatantly bypassed those internal mechanisms. We essentially told our immune systems, “We’re good. We can handle pesky germs. We don’t need you.” Then we sent our fighters to the bench where they got lazy!
We are not good. Germs are kicking our butts. We desperately need to rebuild our immune systems before the mass outbreak of superbugs immune to antibiotics spread out of control.
These mass-population changes to how we deal with illness explains the explosion of auto-immune diseases, allergies, food intolerance, gastrointestinal conditions, and even cancer.
The Emergence of the Superbug
Bacteria are resilient. By design, they adapt for survival and antibiotic overuse has sped up this natural process. We must take steps to slow it down. Unfortunately, the process cannot be reversed. Superbugs make pharmaceutical antibiotics less effective or completely ineffective…and that isn’t going to change.
Annually, more than 2 million people contract a drug-resistant infection and more than 23,000 people end up dying because modern drugs are completely useless to treat them.
The United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued a comprehensive report on the 18 drug-resistant superbugs they feel threaten the population.
Considered URGENT THREATS by the CDC:
- Clostridium Difficile (CDIFF)
- Carbapenem-Resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE)
- Neisseria gonorrhoeae
Considered SERIOUS THREATS by the CDC:
- Multidrug-Resistant Acinetobacter
- Drug-Resistant Campylobacter
- Fluconazole-Resistant Candida
- Extended Spectrum Enterobacteriaceae (ESBL)
- Vancomycin-Resistant Enterococcus (VRE)
- Multidrug-Resistant Pseudomonas Aeruginosa
- Drug-Resistant Non-Typhoidal Salmonella
- Drug-Resistant Salmonella Serotype Typhi
- Drug-Resistant Shigella
- Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA)
- Drug-Resistant Streptococcus Pneumoniae
- Drug-Resistant Tuberculosis
Considered CONCERNING THREATS by the CDC:
- Vancomycin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus
- Erythromycin-Resistant Group A Streptococcus
- Clindamycin-Resistant Group B Streptococcus
Basically, the situation is dire and we need solutions right now! There are many alternatives to antibiotics that can keep you healthy without negating your immune system.
I want to talk to you about the oil of oregano benefits.
Oregano has been used for millennia in culinary and medicinal applications. It’s fragrant, delicious, and sturdy enough to grow in a simple kitchen garden (which I highly recommend). You can make the oil yourself for the freshest option.
The properties of the oil are incredibly powerful. It is naturally antimicrobial, antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal, antiseptic, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory.
In one test after another, oregano oil has outperformed pharmaceutical drugs used to treat food poisoning, respiratory infections, and skin conditions (including MRSA).
The biggest benefit of oregano oil is that it is one of the only compounds effective against “superbugs” that do not respond to administered antibiotics (in any way)!
The mass overuse of antibiotics is particularly clear in the treatment of common infections such as bronchitis or pneumonia, urinary tract infections, and those that effect the skin. Prescriptions have been given so much (and often unnecessarily) that these bugs mutated fastest and are now the ones not responding to conventional medicine.
Proven Oil of Oregano Benefits
- Fights upper respiratory infections
- Allergy relief
- Internal detoxification
- Stimulates good gut flora
- Nutrient dense (especially fresh)
- Combats food toxins and food-borne bacteria
- Weight loss
- Chronic pain relief
- Prevents urinary tract infections (UTIs)
- Treats nail fungus, skin infections, and bug bites
- Natural disinfectant for your home
The active compounds in oregano oil are carvacrol, thymol, pinene, and terpinene. They are incredibly powerful and are joined by linalool, bonreol, and so much more. Basically, this oil possesses more bacteria fighting properties than many actual prescription antibiotics!
It’s capable of piercing bacteria’s cell membranes that protect them from being destroyed by your immune system.
How Can You Use Oregano Oil?
Using a carrier oil such as coconut oil, you can apply oregano oil topically for skin conditions. Never apply the oil full-strength! Don’t apply to broken skin…it will burn horribly!
If you want to take the oil internally, you can do so short term. In a glass of water, use 4-6 drops of oregano oil. I like to do this once a week for maintenance. It’s excellent for digestion and bile production. Women who are pregnant shouldn’t use oregano oil since it increases blood circulation.
One of the absolute best ways to utilize the benefits of oregano oil is inhaling through steam. Boil water and pour in a glass bowl. Add several drops of oil and hover over it, inhaling deeply. I like to make a “tent” with a towel to keep the steam enclosed. This is outstanding for upper respiratory infections and helps speed relief from the worst cold and flu symptoms.
It’s time to use natural methods to treat superbugs. In the lab, oregano oil killed bacteria so fast that it didn’t have time to mutate. Find out what a World Without Antibiotics could mean by reading my book right now!
We can’t afford to keep making the same choices…or we’ll continue setting ourselves up to fail.
