A member of the mint family (Labiatae) oil of oregano is not what you put on your pizza sauce. Found in the Mediterranean, medicinal grade oregano is distilled to extract the essential oil and to preserve its healing compounds.
Taking over 1000 pounds of wild oregano to produce just 1 pound of oregano oil, it has been precious commodity for over 2,500 years in folk medicine expanding the globe.
The predominant healing compound, carvacrol, is arguably the most important component explaining why oil of oregano is so potent.
Transitioning to the evidence, over 800 studies in PubMed support carvacrol’s healing capacity.
It has demonstrated the ability to reverse or reduce:
- Bacterial infections
- Fungal infections

Dr MB’s Oregano Essential Oil Benefits
Transitioning to a focus on oregano oil benefits, it surpasses some antibiotics in effectiveness while avoiding harmful side effects. Unfortunately, prescribed antibiotics by most doctors today have detrimental impacts such as antibiotic resistance, probiotic destruction, reduced vitamin absorption, and damage to the digestive lining causing leaky gut.
Taking a more targeted approach, like deploying a special ops sniper team, proves more advantageous than a broad-spectrum approach akin to dropping a nuclear bomb on a city.
The great news is that oregano oil (also known as oil of oregano) offers an incredible natural alternative to prescription antibiotics. It contains two potent compounds, carvacrol and thymol, with remarkable anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties.
The Problem with Prescription Antibiotics
Last August, the Wall Street Journal printed a fantastic article highlighting this horrible dis-service to trusting American patients:
Overuse of antibiotics, and prescribing broad-spectrum drugs when they aren’t needed, can cause a range of problems. It can make the drugs less effective against the bacteria they are intended to treat by fostering the growth of antibiotic-resistant infections. And it can wipe out the body’s good bacteria (probiotics), which help digest food, produce vitamins and protect from infections, among other functions.
In a July study published in the Journal of Antimicrobial Chemotherapy, researchers from the University of Utah and the CDC found that 60% of the time physicians prescribe antibiotics, they choose broad-spectrum ones….
A similar study of children, published in the journal Pediatrics in 2011, found that when antibiotics were prescribed they were broad-spectrum 50% of the time, mainly for respiratory conditions…
Both studies also found that about 25% of the time antibiotics were being prescribed for conditions in which they have no use, such as viral infections.
Oregano Oil Benefits Are Unstoppable!
In December, the Journal of Medicinal Food published a study that assessed oregano oil’s antibacterial activity against 5 different types of harmful bacteria. The evaluation revealed significant anti-bacterial properties, with the highest activity observed against E. Coli.
These findings highlight the potential of oregano oil in promoting gastrointestinal health and preventing food poisoning.
Additionally, researchers from Pakistan, two years prior, published similar results in the journal Revista Brasileira de Farmacognosia, demonstrating oregano oil’s ability to kill various types of cancer cells.
Oregano Oil is More Than Just An Antibiotic
In a nutshell: Dozens of other studies support the use of oregano oil as a substitute for harmful antibiotics in addressing various health concerns. Moreover, the cited research goes beyond its antibiotic properties, highlighting oregano oil as the ultimate natural antibiotic.
For example, a study published in the European Review for Medical and Pharmacological Sciences last year distinguished the predominant phenol in oil of oregano. Carvacrol, the phenol, demonstrated its ability to safeguard against methotrexate toxicity in rats, thereby preventing side effects from potent drugs.
Methotrexate, commonly prescribed for conditions like cancer and rheumatoid arthritis, is notorious for its adverse effects. Researchers from Turkey assessed the potential of oil of oregano in mitigating these effects, as antioxidants and anti-inflammatory drugs have proven ineffective. The evaluation of various markers in the sciatic nerve of mice revealed that carvacrol reduced the pro-inflammatory response induced by methotrexate, marking a groundbreaking discovery.
Similarly, researchers from the Netherlands discovered that oregano oil can prevent bacterial overgrowth and colonization in the large intestine during oral iron therapy. This therapy, used for treating iron deficiency anemia, often leads to gastrointestinal issues such as nausea, diarrhea, constipation, heartburn, and vomiting.
It should be noted that these two studies give hope to people who long to manage the horrible suffering that accompanies drugs and medical interventions. For someone on chemo or taking iron therapy, these “little” things mean all the world.
