So after 8.5 months of antibiotics my LLMD decided to switch me to herbs for 3-4 months to see if my "immune system is up to it" or not.
I have ordered a whooping list of herbs again, including andrographis, monolaurin, nasturtium and all sorts of other weird stuff. Now besides that i want to start take oregano oil. I have a NOW foods oregano oil capsules bottle with 55% carvacrol. /iherb.com/pr/Now-Foods-Oregano-Oil-90-Softgels/731
my question is how much should i take per day ? i started with 3 softgels per day. on empty stomach. They are a bit hard on the gut, i can sometimes feel the pills burning me on the inside after ~ 1 hour after taking them. But it's manageable for the moment.
Are you taking larger amounts ? with food ? have u seen any reaction ? So far i have had none, taking this for 2 days already... besides the small burn sensation which is normal since oregano is very very hard on the gut.
My only remaining symptom so far is burning eyes. My shin bone pain has disappeared as soon as i stopped the rifampin. I treat the burning eyes with antialergic drops, massage. I also started taking levocetirizine (5mg/day) for allergy and MCAS. It is a H1 blocker and helps calm down mast cells. I also take 1-1.5 gr of vitamin C per day, divided in 3 doses, Vitamin C also calms down mast cells.
I know stephania is good for eye but im having cold feet about
putting stuff in my eye that is not very well purified and says on the label "for ocular use". Because i do not want to go blind that's why ;)
anyway, my main question was about
oregano oil capsules and how much to take. I want to prevent a relapse thats all, and i am taking a lot of herbs too. Also taking loads of probiotics since i know it can kill your gut bacteria.
