It's supposed to be a strong anti-bacterial/viral/fungal.
 
Has anyone tried ingesting oil of oregano to help with their crohns?

Thanks for posting that pb4....I don't know how in the world I missed that. Are you still taking it? What have your results been?

Yes I'm still taking it, they're not bad...I started getting a cold but it seemed to stop it in it's tracks by the second day...as far as the CD things are going okay, I'm still averaging about 5 or less a day, but instead of getting most of my BM's for the day done within the first couple of hours and then being poop free for the rest of the day, I go 2 times first thing and then usually end up having to go again in the eve...I almost see a pattern now of having to "go" shortly after I finish eating something, so it's changed things but I don't know if it's necessarily for the better.

My periods were a little better off though...but I'll see how the next cycle goes with it...I still have quite a bit left so I like to give anything new a fair chance and I'll be finishing the entire bottle before I decide for sure if it's worth it or not....who knows, maybe things will all the sudden greatly improve.

Fingers crossed!

Because of PB4's previous thread I started to take it and my husband too. I have noticed great improvement over where I was and I thought I was in a good place. I have a mucosa problem and it has greatly improved. I have been taking this for 3 weeks now and plan to continue.

Thanks again PB4.

I had some little growths on my thumb recently, and the prescribed antiobiotic and steroid cream didn't work, so I used oil of oregano topically for a few days. The wart things died within 2 days, now they're scabbed over and healing.
 
So I wondered how this would work for the crohns. I'm on the fence still because oil of oregano is a blood thinner and I'm on heart meds and imuran. I guess I'll talk to my doc about ingesting it first.

RedAdmin :)

That's great that you've found improvements with it and that you're planning on continuing, I wish you much success with it!!! And needless to say I'm thrilled that you found something that is helping and that I was the reason...I never thought this DD would end up becomming a quest for me to try and help others dealing with it, but I guess with a great community like this what goes around comes around and I find it very therapeutic posting here.

Roni :)

You should definitely talk with your doc since you're taking heart meds especially...good luck!

I have been taking oil of oregano for a few yrs now. The taste was way too strong so I bought empty gel caps.  They are very cheap and you can buy a 150 for a few bucks.  Pull the caps apart, put a few drops of oregano oil in, close caps and then swallow with water. This is much better than trying to mask the taste in food or beverages. 
I started taking the oil after being diagnosed with lymes disease.  I had some joint swelling.  Since taking it I have had only one flare up and have not had a cold in two years. I have read many good things about taking this supplement but hard to find much on individual reviews from current users.
