Can I use oil of oregano in addition to augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) (i have a sinus infection and read about the benefits of this natural remedy). ?

Can I use oil of oregano in addition to augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) (i have a sinus infection and read about the benefits of this natural remedy). ?

YES: There are no known interactions between oregano oil & augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate). Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) is a good broad-spectrum antibiotic but many sinus infections are viral &/or fungal. Oregano oil kills viruses, fungi & bacteria so is reasonable to take as well. Also consider pelargonium sidoides (sold as umcka), an herb proven effective for sinus infections. I also advise taking a probiotic for anyone on antibioitics. ...Read more

Had bad mucous filled cough for weeks. Last night she complained of ear pain. Is garlic mullein oil as effective as amoxicillin?She had c diff b4.

Unfortunately, no: Risk of middle ear infection increases during the process of resolving upper respiratory viral illness. However, infection is not the only cause of ear pain. A good physical examination with experienced pediatrician that knows your daughter is needed. For true otitis media, there is no substitute for antibiotics. If prescribed, ask for advice on how to prevent recurrence of c diff (eg yogurt) ...Read more

Can I take oregano oil capsules as well as drops of grapefruit seed extract in a sinus rinse?

Can I take oregano oil capsules as well as drops of grapefruit seed extract in a sinus rinse?

Start with saline: Oregano oil and grapefruit seed extract are thought to have antimicrobial effects; however, there is little evidence that using them in a nasal rinse is any better than simple salt water nasal rinses. Their risks in causing irritation to the nasal lining or allergic reactions are also poorly known at this time. ...Read more

Is oregano oil a type of neurotoxin?

Is oregano oil a type of neurotoxin?

Oregano oil: There are no neurotoxins in oregano oil. It would not be good to place any oil on a nerve but there is no worry to using oregano oil unless you have an allergy. This does not come from the cooking oregano. Chronic use should be supplemented with iron because it reduces the bodies ability to absorb iron. Pregnant women should avoid use. See your doctor about any other questions. ...Read more

Is it safe to use oregano oil in a vaporiser for a baby?

Is it safe to use oregano oil in a vaporiser for a baby?

I never would: I find that any fragrant material added to vaporizers actually acts as air pollution and often triggers cough and nasal congestion in small infants. While you may fine the fragrance relaxing, the babies nose and airway is very different from yours. Plain water is the best material, along with liberal use of saline nasal wash to clear babies nasal passages. ...Read more

I heard that oregano the essential oil will burn your intestines. Is that true?

I heard that oregano the essential oil will burn your intestines. Is that true?

Unlikely; however: Undiluted oregano oil is very spicy so it might cause irritation to your mucous membranes if taken undiluted, but would be more likely to burn your mouth, esophagus and stomach. So it is best to dilute it in water or coconut oil or take in capsules or tablet form. Taken properly, it is very safe.
