For over 4,000 years the ancient herb Oregano has been used worldwide to treat a wide variety of ailments and to strengthen the ability to fight off illness. It has powerful bacteria and fungi killing properties, as well as being used as a painkiller and anti-inflammatory.
Ancient Greeks believed that oregano could also be used as a poison antidote. They used it to treat skin irritations and infections, convulsions, and as an antidote for narcotic poisons.
Oregano has been used in the treatment of several ailments such as diarrhea, stomach upset and nausea. Oregano also has some anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties so you will see it used in the treatment of arthritis, muscle and joint pain and soreness, as well as for fungal infections.
The Roman’s next adopted oregano because they enjoyed the taste and how easy is was to cultivate. Their love of the herb helped spread its use all throughout Europe and Northern Africa. Then China, and Oregano did not become popular in the United States until after World War II when the soldiers were exposed to its culinary use in Europe.
Hippocrates, known as the “father of medicine”, also had a part in making oregano a well known medical herb. He used oregano on a regular basis to protect against respiratory and gastrointestinal issues and was one of the first to recognize its antiseptic properties.
There’s even clinical evidence to show that oregano oil is a powerful tool for the immune system, especially when it encounters outside invaders.
One study from the United States Department of Agriculture reported that oregano oil is effective enough to fight off germs like Salmonella and E. coli. These findings were echoed by researchers of the Department of Physiology & Biophysics at Georgetown University Medical Center.
