Hi, @goldensrbest .  I take oil of oregano when I am fighting any kind of virus.  It is one of my go-to supplements.  (I also cook my dog's food with oregano and basil, which have anti-viral properties.)

Hi Goldensrbest (oh - and they sure are!)

 

I wasn't taking it - but searched WebMd and found this on their page:

Oregano is a plant. The leaf is used to make medicine.

Oregano can be used for several types of common cold ailments.

It is also used for beating bloatOil of oregano can be used topically on the skin for many skin irritations as well as an aid to avoid insect bites.

 

Sounds like a well rounded plant with a variety of uses to help ward off the everyday bothers of all sorts of ills.

Have not used it myself, but gave it to my dogs when they had kennel cough.  Worked very quickly for them with a little honey.  No other medications needed.

Don't be so afraid of dying that you forget how to live.

I used to but stopped when my doctor at the time said that it increased estrogen and that I, as a breast cancer survivor, shouldn't take it.  So I stopped  It didn't actually ever keep me from getting the winter bronchitis (and pneumonia twice) that I would get every year.

 

What I HAVE been using more recently is a mushroom blend recommended by my naturopath and Mullein leaf (as a tea and as a supplement in capsules).  No bronchitis since, knock wood!  Used to be if I got a sinus thing it would travel to my chest.  Not since the mullein leaf and mushrooms!  And I haven't had a sinus "thing"progress to a full blown infection either.  So, I'm sold on my mushrooms and mullein leaf. Cat Happy

I have taken this from time to time. It helps with your body's immune system.
