Have you ever wondered what the most POTENT way to kill a virus is? And no, its not an antibiotic, well lets just say it’s NATURE’S antibiotic. When most people think of oregano, they think of sprinkling dried goodness into Italian dishes for an aromatic punch. However, oregano is much more than a culinary herb. It is highly medicinal and has been used for centuries, containing some of the highest antioxidant properties of any other plant on the planet. Again, call it nature’s antibiotic, without the side effects. And, one of the most potent ways to extract its medicinal properties is by taking essential oil of oregano.
But, let's start from the beginning. Oregano has been used for centuries across the globe, from ancient Mediterranean civilizations to modern European households. “According to Greek mythology, oregano was created by goddess Aphrodite as a symbol of happiness. For this reason, the Greek believed using oregano in marriage ceremony would provide joy and usage of oregano in funerals would convey peace to the dead. After the Romans conquered the Greek, the Romans inherited the use of oregano and the Romans were the ones responsible for the extensive use of oregano all over Europe and abroad. After that, with time this herb found itself a journey from the Middle East to China. In China, they used oregano exclusively for medicinal purposes. As for the United States, oregano did not seem to find itself much popularity until the World War II” (Naturehacks, 2015).
Viruses are the silent killers. They are to blame for hundreds of mystery illnesses and symptoms and worst of all, doctors are not believing they exist or can simply find them! “If doctors were to seriously look for these pathogens in their patients coming into their offices with a long list of mysterious symptoms, they would come up dry. Most tests the blood lab offers cannot detect the viruses and bacteria that are invading so many people and causing so many conditions and symptoms. Many of the pathogens causing autoimmune labeled illnesses are yet to be discovered and classified; therefore, it would be quite impossible to detect. You can’t find something when you do not know what you are looking for” (Anthony William, 2018). For example, one virus highlighted throughout Anthony William’s protocols and research is the infamous Epstein Barr Virus. It ravages people access the globe, lying dormant with low grade symptoms to taking over when one is most stressed. In short, “the Epstein-Barr virus has created a secret epidemic. Out of the roughly 320 million people in the U.S., over 225 million Americans have some form of EBV that's affecting their life. Medical communities are aware of only one version of EBV, but there are actually over 60 varieties. They have no idea how the virus operates long-term and how problematic it can be. The truth is, EBV is the source of numerous health problems that are currently considered mystery illnesses, including fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, thyroid disorders, lupus, Lyme disease, tinnitus, vertigo, and much more” (Anthony William, 2016).
Oregano is extremely powerful, proving such benefits as being anti-parasitic, bacterial, viral, fungal, inflammatory, and septic. Your immune system will literally eat it up, using it to fight off infection. Its also incredible for treatment of colds, flus, and respiratory, digestive and lymphatic issues, as well as balancing your metabolism. “It is an excellent source of vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin K, B-complex, potassium, calcium, iron, and magnesium” (Williams, 2015). Oregano oil also contains carvacrol and thymol, which are compounds that fight bacteria and fungi with a potent punch. It is pretty much the magic herb that cures ailments far and wide.
One of my favorite ways to experiment with oregano oil is by taking a pill with me when I eat out at restaurants. Taken with mystery meals, it can absorb toxins and lessen negative reactions from certain foods. Oregano oil is also the absolute strongest way to kill the strep virus. Make a strep-eliminating oil pull by mixing two to three drops of oregano oil with coconut oil and gargle this mixture for 10 minutes. Repeat as needed. Make sure to not get any on your lips, as it’s strong enough to burn them. Lastly, it will become your best friend for travel - do not forget your bottle at home!
This is one of Anthony Williams favorite supplemental healing solutions. In his research and books, he truly dives into its power on the gut, but strongly recommends not taking it everyday, as it is very powerful. Please work your immunity up and take oregano oil in increments. We truly recommend Gaia Oil of Oregano tablets. Gaia Herbs sells some of, if not the most, potent and high quality single herb and herb blends on the market. We trust them with almost all of our health needs and use them on a regular basis.
