Treating Infections Naturally

Oil of Oregano

Wild Oil of Oregano is an edible medicinal grade essential oil that is grown from a wild species of oregano especially in the Mediterranean. There are a multitude of conditions that Oil of Oregano treats, but the most famous use is its ability to kill infections in the body. Most organisms cannot survive when exposed to the powerful phenols (carvacrol and thymol) which are the active ingredient in this Wild Oil of Oregano. These ingredients work well on their own but have an added potency when found together in nature. The ancient Greeks were among the first to take advantage of oregano’s medicinal qualities and termed the spice origanos, meaning “delight of the mountains.”

Here is a list of the powerful actions of Oil of Oregano

  • Potent antioxidant
  • Anti-venom (spiders, scorpions, bees, ants and snakes)
  • Anti-viral
  • Anti-fungal
  • Anti-parasitic
  • Natural Anesthetic (pain reducer)
  • Mucolytic (thins mucous)
  • Anti-tussive (decreases cough)
  • Antispasmodic

Here is a list of the many conditions that Oil of Oregano can treat:

  • Acne
  • Animal bites
  • Arthritis
  • Asthma
  • Athlete’s Foot
  • Bad breath
  • Bladder infections
  • Bronchitis
  • Bruises
  • Burns
  • Bursitis
  • Candida
  • Canker sores
  • Colds/flu
  • Cough
  • Dandruff/seborrhea
  • Diarrhea
  • Ear infections
  • Gum disease
  • Food poisoning
  • Head lice
  • Headaches
  • Hives
  • Pneumonia
  • Poison ivy
  • Psoriasis
  • Prostate disorders
  • Radiation burns
  • Shingles
  • Sinusitis
  • Sore throat
  • Thrush
  • Toothache
  • Tuberculosis
  • Venomous bites
  • Warts
  • Wounds

The contraindication to using Oil of Oregano is if you are on blood thinners, pregnant or breastfeeding. If you are not on a blood thinner there is no risk with thin blood at all. It is not necessary to dilute Oil of Oregano, although many do because of its pungently strong taste. If you place 2 drops under your tongue and hold there for a few minutes, very little will make it to your taste buds. Diluting with olive or coconut oil is an option and there are also capsules for the light of heart and children. Use whatever compliance method will work for you. The most common dose of Oil of Oregano is 2-3 drops 3-4 times daily when acute or twice daily for maintenance. If using the capsules, use 100-150 mg capsule in lieu of the drops 3-4 times daily. Please do use the sublingual (under the tongue) drops if possible as your results will be quicker and stronger. Oil of oregano can safely be taken a dozen times daily, even more. Just use small amounts frequently.

Oil of Oregano is used topically for many conditions like arthritis, bursitis, carpel tunnel syndrome, and sore and stiff muscles. Apply a few drops of Oil of Oregano onto the skin covering the affected area several times throughout the day. Massage diluted Oil of Oregano (3 drops into 1 tsp of olive or coconut oil) and massage into the feet of babies to support their immune system and to calm them. Massage around the external ear for ear infections. Use this same dilution for acne, psoriasis, eczema and yeast infections.

Oil of Oregano has been tested side by side with antibiotics like penicillin and vancomycin and shown to be as protective for the same infection. The best attribute of Wild Oil of Oregano is that humans do not develop a resistance. People develop strains of bacteria that become resistant to antibiotics. This means that the antibiotics no longer penetrate the organism and the infection persists. The only symptoms of overdose are rash and vomiting


Iodine has been used therapeutically in many immune pathologies from the common cold to cancer. It is interesting to note that iodine is accumulated in diseased tissues. Iodine uses a natural enzyme system in our body, (peroxidase) to kill foreign invaders (bacteria, viruses, fungi, parasites). What happens in white blood cells (the cells that fight infection) is that iodine (iodide) is accumulated into these cells when they are turned on by an invading organism. There is a process called phagocytosis – which is like Pac-man (white blood cells) chomping at the flashing dots (bacteria). When this is turned on, lots of iodine is mobilized from stores in the body to assist this function. If iodine is low, our own immune system is going to be weak in its attack. Because iodine is a crucial molecule in thyroid hormone, if our stores are low, iodine will be mobilized from thyroid hormones rendering a weakened thyroid response as well

I recommend that anyone that desires or is taking iodine supplementation that they have their levels checked. The reason is more for deficiency and less for toxicity reasons. The test to measure iodine is a 24 hour urine test. Once determined how deficient you are you will be dosed with it and re-measured. Toxicity is rare. Symptoms of iodine toxicity are skin rash, vomiting, and diarrhea

Vitamin D

Vitamin D is known as the “sunshine vitamin” because it has the potential to be manufactured by human skin when exposed to the sun, plays a major role in maintaining a healthy immune system. Sun exposure however is not enough to obtain levels that are immune-protective.

Vitamin D turns on the immune response by triggering and arming the cells that seek and destroy any invading organisms. Our immune defenses are simply not activated if our vitamin D levels are too low. Our immune system will not be able to react to and fight off serious infections in the body. This may look like chronic acute infections or may show up later in life as cancer without any warning. Our immune cells cannot begin to mobilize if there is not enough vitamin D in the body.

When you have acute symptoms of infection use all three nutrients every 2-3 hours while awake for two days:

  • Wild Oil of Oregano (2 drops under tongue or 1 capsule)
  • I-Throid (1 capsule)
  • D3 5000 (1 capsule)

For children 2-3 times daily is usually enough.

Each of us requires different doses of vitamin D to maintain solid blood levels of around 100. Many doctors shun the use of high vitamin D intake, but if you aren’t measuring your levels you have no idea how much you are absorbing and/or utilizing. Some patients require 10,000 IU twice daily (total of 20,000 IU daily) to even get close to a good blood level.

It is nearly impossible to have toxic levels of vitamin D. If you have any of the following symptoms and presume it to be vitamin D, get your levels checked. The other option is to stop using it and if your symptoms go away you have identified the culprit.

The symptoms of vitamin D overdose are:

  • Abdominal cramps
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting

    Can I take oil of oregano prior to breast surgery?

    • Dr. Ramsey November 12, 2013 at 5:05 am #

      No. Wait until afterwards.

    I tried using two drops of oregano oil under my tongue as you suggested. It left my lips burned and palate burned badly. Now what do you suggest?!?

    • Dr. Ramsey October 9, 2013 at 7:18 pm #

      The pure oils can sting temporarily but to leave a burn sounds like the oil is cut with something. The best oils are made by Doterra. For now though, to help healing, use sesame oil (if not allergic to it) and use 1 T and swish around mouth for 10 minutes twice daily to help heal faster. You may find old writings on “sesame oil pull.”

    • Sophia December 31, 2013 at 11:09 pm #

      Hi. I take a little cotton off the tip of a cotton swab and put the drops of oregano on that before putting it under my tongue. It helps to keep the oil in place. Also, only 2 – 3 drops…any more becomes too overwhelming.

      • Dr. Ramsey January 2, 2014 at 8:52 pm #

        Awesome. I tolerate 5 drops directly under tongue. If you get a chance to try DoTerra Oils they are so pure and well tolerated. However I always say “it’s not for the faint of heart”

    Dr. Ramsey, you are awesome and share awesome information. We need more physicians practicing natural care. I believe that chemicals and synthetics compromise the natural, organic nature of the human body, degrading it and predisposing it to subsequent illnesses. I love your advice. Thank you so much!

    Should this be followed by a good probiotic? Should I take the probiotic while taking oregano oil, or does that pretty much cancel itself out?

    • Dr. Ramsey January 14, 2014 at 3:01 am #

      Probiotics and essential oils are used well together. Even when people are
      on antibiotics (drugs), it is important to take probiotics while on and

    Hello Dr. Ramsey,

    I’ve been using Doterra oils for a variety of reasons and love them. Just today, I was diagnosed with a reactive lymph node and they would like me to go on antibiotics. I’d like to try the oil of oregano first but don’t want to put myself at risk for further infection….any thoughts?? Thank you very much,


    • Dr. Ramsey January 14, 2014 at 3:23 am #

      I think the DoTerra Oils are the best on the market. It is possible you
      can but without seeing you I cannot make that recommendation. However you
      proceed you will need to be monitored. I think it is a possibility but
      cannot give out specific medical information without knowing you. Best to
      you and your wellness.

    I have heard mixed reviews:

    Is it safe for myself and10 year old daughter to use 2 drops of oregano oil Dailey??? I buy a very reputable brand but I still hear some people say yes and others no,
    Please give me some advice,
    Thank you!

  7. al tarli February 3, 2014 at 7:53 am #

    Just curious as to what is considered a safe amount of carvacrol in oregano oil to be able to put directly under the tongue. There is an oil sold on Amazon that is 83-85% carvacrol made by teliasoils,wild oregano imported from Greece. It is highly recommended by manufacturer that it be diluted. Is the doterra oil less potent and therefore the reason your able to put directly under the tongue?

    • Dr. Ramsey February 3, 2014 at 4:49 pm #

      You will have to notify a DoTerra representative for this.

    I have read that Oil of Oregano is good for helping the body shed the high-risk HPV virus. I have just been diagnosed. What is your opinion of this and what dosing would you recommend (I purchased 140 mg gelcaps)

    Thank you!

    • Dr. Ramsey February 3, 2014 at 4:44 pm #

      I would only recommend a brand that is approved for oral use. The same
      brands that sell the capsules for oral consumption also sell drops for
      oral consumption.

      ~ Dr. Ramsey

    • Dr. Ramsey February 4, 2014 at 2:05 am #

      Yes, it is. HPV only becomes active when we are stressed or our immune
      system is compromised for any reason. Some people can just have activation
      of the virus due to poor sleep, others need a full blown stress response.
      Once the virus goes to rest, if you stay balanced and strong, it may never
      show up on a pap again. There are great suppositories that are antiviral
      (you need a doctor to prescribe them), vitamin A and D3 are also good

      I received a cure from a holistic “doctor” that has cured just about every single hpv case she’s come across.

      Take 100% cold press non GMO organic coconut oil
      Young living organic oregano oil (or other high quality oregano oil)
      Ceramic or glass bowl only
      NO metal spoon
      Organic non bleached Tampon

      (you can get at Wholefoods)

      Take 3 table spoons of coconut oil
      Add 4 drops of oregano oil
      Soak up tampon in liquid (you’ll have some left)
      insert in vagina overnight for 7 nights (preferably at night because thats when your body heals)

      Should clear up the HPV even high risk!

      Best of luck to you!

      Also, try taking/researching AHCC and lots of Vitamin C and Green Tea

  9. CF February 3, 2014 at 9:08 pm #

    Thank you, Dr. Ramsey for this informative website! My five year old is constantly catching colds and for now, I’ve been rubbing oil of oregano on her feet, chest and behind her ears. I use capsules that are 55% carvicol and wondered if they would be safe for her to take internally? Also, what are your thoughts on oil of oregano to treat/prevent norovirus? Thank you!

    • Dr. Ramsey February 4, 2014 at 2:14 am #

      It is safe for oral consumption. Kids can often have a delicate GI tract
      and I never want to cause chaos in a system. For kids I support their
      immune system with D3 – 1000 U to start (you can find it in a dropper
      bottle where 1 drop = 1000 U. Vitamin C (kids typically like EmergenC) –
      and can make stools loose so, start slow. If you have a diffuser and can
      diffuse the essential oils into her bedroom at night while she sleeps that
      can help too. There are some diffusers that cycle on and off as you don’t
      want it on all night, just for 15 minutes then off, 15 minutes then off.
      If you need a resource I recommend DoTerra oils.

    Dr. Ramsey, I love your information and suggestions! I am a big believer in apple cider vinegar, probiotics, and Lugol’s Iodine. I am concerned though that since iodine is used to purify water, that it may also be damaging to my intestinal flora when I drink it with water?
    Thanks again for a wonderful site!

    • Dr. Ramsey March 3, 2014 at 6:29 pm #

      Thank you! ACV is fermented, acting like a prebiotic for your probiotics.
      There is no damage. I suggest daily probiotics for my patients regardless
      as we have constant strain on our GI tract from emotions to physical

    • Theresa February 10, 2015 at 4:39 am #

      The only oil I would use on a cut is lavender as it is so soothing and will not burn. You need to seek medical attention since it happened a week ago and is not improving.

    My jaw suffered nicrosis after radio therapy. Then broke into shards after dental treatment. The shards of bone broke through my neck. Surgeons replaced my jaw. Now the screws are breaking through. I have been on tetracycline 3 times daily, since 1998, with infection covered with plasters. Disgusting.
    I am going to try and slowly replace the tetracycline by taking allicin and rubbing oil of oregano infused in olive oil.
    Could this work .
    I would be grateful for any information .
    With thanks

    • Theresa May 20, 2015 at 2:55 am #

      Oh my! I wonder if the tetracycline is still working. Antibiotics are not designed to be taken for years. Since I’m not treating you I cannot say for sure but doing the two will not hurt. If you want to do in place of antibiotic please ask your doctor.

  18. Melissa May 20, 2015 at 5:10 am #

    My daughter is 7 and her doctor told us to give her 10 drops of oregano oil twice a day for 60 days to get rid of intestinal yeast and streptococcus bacterial overgrowth in the gut. I’ve heard that taking this orally can potentially be toxic to the liver and kidneys. Is this prescription safe? Is there a milder oil that you would recommend instead?

    • Dr. Ramsey May 20, 2015 at 6:45 pm #

      That is a high dose to me. Maybe your doctor has experience with this dose but I don’t. In a capsule form it is much easier to take but again, on the dosage, I’m not certain. For yeast, oregano oil is good however. She must avoid sugar/grains and fruit while treating and take a probiotic that has acidophillus, bacillus and saccromyces in it.

    Do you recommend soil-based probiotics, and if so, which ones? I have yeast bubbles in my blood. I am going to start the oil of oregano extract this week coming up and I am on the candida diet. I have suffered fatigue for 5 years now and the holistic doctor thinks I have a marker for lyme. Also, is it ok to take soil-based probiotics with regular ones? I bought oil of oregano extract capsules and it says a heat sensation is normal after taking them. ??? Is this common? I think they are 150mg. Please advise when you have time. Thanks.

    • Theresa July 4, 2015 at 4:23 pm #

      In young kids you will want to dilute (1 drop in 5-10 drops of carrier oil like olive or coconut). Apply to your skin first to make sure it is tolerable. After some time you can make less dilute – always trying on you first as you don’t want to burn him and the oils are very strong.

    Dear Dr. Ramsey

    I have been doing a lot of research on HPV and how to naturally heal from it. Is it possible that oregano oil can help men get rid of not just genital warts just cause they can always reappear but hpv in general? I learned that by keeping a healthy diet or just boosting your immune system will help heal from hpv is it true? Will it work for men as well or just woman? Any thoughts on ahcc??

    • Theresa July 4, 2015 at 3:57 pm #

      HPV is all about the host and not the virus itself. You said it perfectly – if the immune system of the host is super strong the HPV cannot express itself – like the herpes and shingles virus. They are always with us – they just “rear their ugly heads” when our immune system is compromised. Less focus on killing the virus and more on supporting the host is my suggestion!

    I have swollen lymph nodes in my neck that look like marbles under the skin. They won’t go away. Will oregano oil + DMSO cream rubbed into my neck be a good treatment plan and for how long should I try this to see if it’s working? My doctor wants to cut them out but I don’t feel this is necessary and that I should explore natural healing.

    • Theresa July 15, 2015 at 8:32 pm #

      Before cutting out – lab work up and imaging should be done – like an ultrasound. Without knowing what you are treating you might waste valuable time. Please have it worked up so you know what is causing them.

    I am about to start using Oil of Oregano.
    History of GIT disfunction, Blasto treated with massive amounts of abx, orally and infusion via colonoscopy, last path test indicate blasto still present. As a result of high abx, gut flora is extremely low and pathogenic bacteria doing well.
    I do not want any more abx treatment.
    Will oil of oregano interfere with probiotics?
    Will oil of oregano kill probiotics as these are also bacteria?
    Can you please suggest an appropriate dose

    • Theresa August 10, 2015 at 3:35 pm #

      If you have an active infection, a high WBC is a very healthy, very strong sign! It means your body is winning the fight! If your WBC was low that is a totally different thing. It is not contraindicated to help your immune system with oregano oil unless you are already on an antibiotic.

    What is your recommendation for treating thrush in the throat with oil of oregano, and how long should I continue the treatment?

    I have already cut out all sugars and processed foods out of my diet, and am currently taking one drop of oreganol p73 under tongue 3 times a day. I am also taking acidophilus and drinking 1 cup of organic kefir daily. Symptoms are subsiding, but I want to make sure I knock this infection out once and for all.

    Thank you.

    • Theresa August 10, 2015 at 3:37 pm #

      I have seen Thrush become resistant to natural treatments several times. In these cases I need to use the pharmaceutical Nystatin (which does not get absorbed and treats the lining only). Some need the deeper candida treatment called Diflucan or Fluconazole for a little while too.

      It is impossible to treat a person when you know only one value. That is just a piece to the puzzle. You need to be evaluated by a physician or a team and do a comprehensive analysis.

    I used tea tree oil in my vagini and it burned the lip of my vagini. It is all red now in other words just the raw skin I am using coconut oil to healing is there anything else I can use for the pain and is there anything else that will help me heal faster. My wall hurts a lot when I urinate 🙁

      I recommend you see a doctor. Essential oils are not meant to go straight to mucous membranes.

      You can take – just don’t do it without medical supervision.
