The colder months of the year typically see an increase in respiratory conditions. Whether you develop a common cough, allergies, or more serious things like bronchitis or strep throat, it is worth experimenting with a powerful natural solution. Better yet, you may consider adding oregano oil to your daily routine to improve the overall health and function of your lungs.
Rosmarinic acid and thymol, two powerful antioxidants, are in oregano oil and they have been known to reduce oxidative stress in the body. Oregano has been shown to contain four times more antioxidants than blueberries. These antioxidants can help nourish cells and fight free radicals in the body!
When pollen, dust, chemicals, or bacteria enter the body, your immune system releases histamine, a chemical that causes something similar to an allergic reaction. You may experience sneezing, increased mucus, or congestion when this happens. As mentioned above, oregano oil contains rosmarinic acid, which works to decrease this “allergic reaction” to foreign invaders. It helps to fight the bacteria before your immune system attacks it.
Because many people are realizing the damaging effects of antibiotics, many people are turning to herbal remedies like oregano oil. Not only is it beneficial for those with respiratory conditions, but it has also helped those with jaundice, chronic inflammation, digestive issues, or urinary tract infections.
Since a lot of people are developing colds and flus at the moment, try adding oregano oil to your water if you feel a cold coming on. Only add three drops of oregano oil in one cup of water and consume this once a day. This works to decrease inflammation in the lungs and helps to boost your immune system in the process. Don’t consume it longer than five consecutive days. Let us know how this works for you.
