quote:Originally posted by PaulMcI've read with interest your writng on Oregano oil. It seems to me it's very important for people with CPD and other lung disorders. It would be great if there could be some more validation on the effects of it from the medical profession (I spoke to my doctor about it only to be met with ridicule). I have a friend who, like your mother is on oxygen the whole time he has a tube and a machine in his home. He's a great musician who can't even play his guitar anymore. So if you can get any proffessional validation for the oil it could go a long way to helping him and many people. I have alerted him to the oil and I would love to hear from you with any developments.
quote:Oregano vs. germs. "No wonder oregano has been used since antiquity to fight infections," Preuss says. He recently found oregano oil as effective as the common antibiotic drug vancomycin in treating staph infections in mice. Bonus: It wiped out an infectious fungus. A daily dose of oregano oil, mixed with oils from fenugreek, cumin and pumpkin seeds, reduced blood pressure and improved blood sugar and insulin sensitivity in diabetic rats. In Texas research, oregano killed parasites in humans. The point, Preuss says: People who eat small regular doses of oregano may get antibiotic and antidiabetic benefits, although more tests on humans are needed to verify it....Strongest antibiotics.The most ferocious killers of 30 bacterial species in Cornell University tests are (in order) onion, garlic, allspice, oregano, thyme, tarragon, cumin, cloves, bay leaf and cayenne pepper.
quote:Antimicrobial effect of spices and herbs on Vibrio parahaemolyticusThe antimicrobial effects of spices and herbs from 18 plant species were examined on a foodborne pathogen, Vibrio parahaemolyticus, with the use of combinations of temperatures and nutrient levels. Basil, clove, garlic, horseradish, marjoram, oregano, rosemary, and thyme exhibited antibacterial activities at incubation of 30 degrees C, while with the exception of horseradish, the same spices and additional 7 species exhibited the activities at 5 degrees C. The lowest MIC (minimum inhibitory concentration) was 0.125% observed in clove and marjoram at 30 degrees C in a nutrient rich medium. Lowering of incubation temperature produced little effect on the MICs except for turmeric. The decreasing of the MIC in turmeric appeared to be basically attributed to the sensitivity of the bacterium to coldness. In nutrient poor medium, the lowest was 0.001 and 0.00025% in marjoram at 30 degrees C and at 5 degrees C, respectively. The sensitivity to several spices and herbs was similar among different clinical serotypes including the emerging strain O3:K6. These results suggest that the spices and herbs can be practical for protecting seafood from the risk of contamination by V. parahaemolyticus and used in hurdle technology with low temperature.from: Yano J,Satomi M, Oikawa H.Int J Food Microbiol. 2006 Aug 15;111(1):6-11.

"Furthermore, due to the number of compounds within Oregano Oil, its“complexity” does not allow for the development of resistant germs (a.k.a.“super bugs”)."
