The number of antibiotic-resistant bugs is growing daily. Visit any hospital and your risk of getting a resistant infection is very high. Stay overnight and your risk goes up even more. So what can you do to fight infection without using antibiotics?

Researchers have found a natural substance that's comparable to powerful antibiotics in killing germs, including staph. It's even comparable to the powerful, expensive, and toxic antibiotic vancomycin. Doctors typically reserve this drug for methicillin resistance.

Not only is this drug as powerful as antibiotics, it can do something antibiotics can't do. In addition to killing bacteria, it also can kill Candida and intestinal parasites.

What is this amazing natural antibiotic? It's the inexpensive and common oil of oregano!

In a test tube study, oil of oregano inhibited the deadly staph germ just as well as penicillin and streptomycin. But many strep strains are resistant to these older drugs, requiring very powerful, expensive and dangerous vancomycin. Oil of oregano took care of the germ as well as vancomycin!

Then researchers from Georgetown University tested oil of oregano on animals. They gave mice lethal staph infections. They gave one group a placebo -- all of them died. The researchers gave another group of mice carvacrol, believed to be the active ingredient in oil of oregano; all of them died. And they gave a third group a relatively low dose of the whole oil (two to three drops daily). Of these mice, 50% survived. This showed that the whole product is superior to its isolated components (perceived active ingredient). It also showed how powerful this oil really is.

And it's much cheaper than the drugs. Consider this: Vancomycin costs about $16 per pill compared to $1 per capsule of oil of oregano. In all honesty, that's not a fair comparison. You would need about 10 capsules of oil of oregano to get the same effectiveness as one vancomycin. However, it's still a 40% savings. Germs don't develop resistance to it. And it spares your kidney and the rest of your body from toxicity.

God gave us remedies for just about every disease in nature. Old Chinese philosophy suggests looking over your shoulder for what ails you. For instance, you find artemisinin, which is a cure for malaria, in plants where malaria is common. By comparison, oregano grows just about anywhere.

If you get an infection, you don't have to be afraid to reach for natural remedies to treat it. Please add oil of oregano to the other infection fighters I've discussed in the past. These include silver hydrosol, citrus seed extracts, olive leaf extract, aloe vera, echinacea, and cat's claw. This is a powerful line of infection-fighting nutrients.

My favorite brand is Biotics ADP. It's a standardized emulsified form of oil of oregano and readily available on the Internet. I've used it for years on my patients, and I've seen tremendous results. I typically use one to two tablets with meals, four times daily. You can also get a standardized drop. They should contain at least 85% carvacrol, the active molecule. You can start with one drop four times daily. It is really strong stuff and quite irritating. Don't ingest without diluting it in water.
