Kidney infections are serious. Bacteria can hide quite well in your kidneys. What’s worse, the typical solution at your doctor’s office is to prescribe antibiotics, are often hard on your kidneys long term health. How about this time, you don't even call your doctor at all for the first forty eight hours while I prove to you that oil of oregano can eradicate your kidney infection promptly and for good. That's all I'm asking for: Forty eight hours to prove to you the dramatic medicinal purpose of this heavenly herb.
We all know what happens when you go to the average run of the mill doctor’s office for a kidney infection. You pee in a cup, they notice an infection. They prescribe you an antibiotic. While there, they also manage to somehow make you doubt every ounce of confidence you have ever had in your body’s ability to heal naturally and when you leave, you are paying your absurd co-pay (if you're lucky enough to have insurance) while thanking your lucky stars you have someone as competent and knowledgeable as your wonderful doctor. You call your mom or your friend and relay the news of imminent healing only to discover later, that along with the prescription you were handed, western medicine also slid in a handful of nasty side-effects.
The side effects range from the drain on your pocketbook that the antibiotic will cost you to long term kidney and liver damage and fully encompass other aggravating side effects such as drowsiness, nausea, possible allergic reactions, secondary yeast infections (candida) and my very favorite, realizing that the stupid drug didn't work anyway, because so many of our infections have become resistant to numerous medications.
I deliver you Mother Nature's medicine bottle.
Oil of Oregano is a concentrated essential oil made from, you guessed it, oregano. That same herb you consume via your pasta sauces and your pizza is one of the most powerful antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal, antiparasitic and antiseptics that exists on earth, including those made by the almighty pharmaceutical companies. In fact, clinic trails have deemed it as effective at killing bacterial infections as the ever powerful Vancomyacin used in the IVs at the hospital. In fact, in laboratories, there isn't a bacteria or virus that it does not kill on contact. And since it kills rather than just maim these nasty bugs... there's no concerns that they will build up a resistance to Mother Nature's remedy. What this means is that in your body, you just need to make sure if it's not working enough on your infection you take more frequent doses or slightly larger doses. You don't need to worry about "taking its full course." There is no full course. There is no resistance issues. It kills most of it, and your body kills the rest.
Unlike many medicines, oil of oregano, while a strong herb, is not hard on your stomach. On the contrary, the high concentrations of thymol and carvacol in Oil of Oregano have been shown to calm upset stomachs and aid digestion. Not only will oregano oil not hurt your liver and kidneys, it's actually fantastic at improving their efficiency and repairing damage that all those medicines you used to use caused. Also, just to be super rad, it improves heart health, joint flexibility, yeast infections, the immune system, acne, and oh, let’s face it... there isn't enough space in any article to list all of the benefits.
I’m not usually one for anecdotal evidence, however I urge you to consider this compelling story. A woman in her late twenties suffered from chronic kidney infections and bladder infections her entire life. A few years ago, she lost one of her kidneys. At her wits end after several antibiotics which she had taken for three months were incapable of overcoming her infection, it was recommended to her to try oil of oregano. Two days after she started the regimen of two caplets of oregano oil three times daily, her kidneys were not sore. That week she went to the doctor to check up on the status of her kidney infection. She was stunned when the doctor told her that her infection was finally better!
What are the downsides of oregano oil use? Well, presuming you are not allergic to oregano, which would mean you can't eat pizza, there are none. Very, very, very few people are allergic to it, but while sifting through the medical journals and endless reports, conclusively, researchers can find no downsides. Ironically though, that seems to be their biggest complaint. When they attempt to break it down into their components so that they can market it in their own western way, it ends up not working as well. I just think perhaps Mother Nature wanted to keep the patent herself. The other downside is it tastes pretty awful.
Adults are lucky, we can just take oil of oregano in a pill form. Though I must point out that not all of these are created the same. They have to have at least 70% carvocal in them. A great medicinal brand is Planetary Herbals. You should take two caplets three times a day for the first couple of days. After that, a healthy single dose a day will act as a preventative for those who battle with chronic or reoccurring infections in their kidneys. For children, take three drops from a bottle like Oreganol P73 and mixed it in a teaspoon of olive oil. Then mix that olive oil with pasta sauce and serve over noodles. If you start on a regimen like this in the morning, you feel relief by the time you go to sleep. Within forty eight hours of your first dose, you will never look at antibiotics the same way again. So, go ahead and hold off on wasting that co-pay.
