What are the medicinal uses of oregano?

Traditional uses of oregano include treating stomach and intestinal problems and infections, the common cold, respiratory (lung) problems and irregular menstruation.

Some studies show that taking oregano can kill off parasites that have infected the intestine.

Other suggested health benefits of oregano oil include treating acne, asthma, bronchitis, cough, the common cold, dandruff, bladder infections, headaches, rheumatoid arthritis, allergies, sinus infection and fatigue.

When applied to the skin, oil of oregano seems to be able to kill off bacteria, parasites and fungus. As well, it has been used to treat muscle pain, canker sores, fungus infections like athlete's foot and ringworm, dandruff, rosacea and toothaches.

Dose used to cure the intestine of parasites is 200 mg (of the emulsified oil of oregano) taken three times daily for 6 weeks.

For other uses, experts suggest using one or two drops of oil of oregano in a glass of water or juice two to three times daily. Higher dose may be used as needed.
