Years ago I used to be a runner and I would pound the pavement for miles and miles. It all ended one spring day in 1996 when I injured my knee while I was doing my thing. For the past 14 years I’ve had a constant lingering pain in that right knee.
Recently I started consistently using oregano oil applied directly on my knee. About 6 drops once a day and I’ve had a substantial decrease in pain. I actually felt a difference almost immediately.
Joint pain may be related to the presence of a yeast organism called Candida. Yeasts are part of the fungal kingdom which includes mushrooms and molds.
Anyway, Candida exists normally to some extent in our bodies, but when our bodies go out of balance they can get really out of hand. For example, when we eat refined sugar, the Candida population explodes because they just thrive on the stuff. We can end up experiencing a number of symptoms including joint pain. See Alex Howard’s excellent article at naturalnews.com.
I’ve seen many people who have joint pain wearing copper bracelets. I’ve talked with quite a few and every one has told me the copper bracelet has helped decrease their joint pain. It just so happens that copper is an anti-fungal agent. Interesting!
Now, oregano oil happens to be a powerful anti-fungal agent. Just look at these properties:
- immune stimulant
Just be careful if you use decide to use it. Even if you get small amounts on your fingers, do not touch anywhere near your eyes or sexual organs or you may feel some definite discomfort for awhile. Ouch! Ouch! Ouch!.
If you have applied it on your body and it causes any irritation at all the problem can usually be solved by spreading a small quantity of a vegetable oil, like olive or almond oil, over the area. Whew!
Some people are extremely sensitive to essential oils. If you had a lot of irritation just discontinue this method completely or use very tiny amounts.
I’ve talked in the past of how difficult it is to get good quality essential oils, even though the bottle says on it “All Natural” and so on. The main reason is that the world demand for essential oils has far outstripped the supply and what is most often sold now-a-days is diluted with chemicals or mass produced with somewhat less than the best methods.
If you are familiar with essential oils and already have a favourite oregano oil, go ahead and try it. If not, check out my site.
If you have a medical condition please seek professional advice.

May there be peace in our hearts.
May there be peace for all humanity.
