Description

Oregano oil is a go to herb for a variety of microbial imbalances in the body. Oregano Oil has been shown to improve microbial balance against Candia overgrowth in humans[20]. It has also been shown to eliminate parasites in human trials[21]. It has been shown to eliminate bacteria including Lyme in vitro (the lab) as of 2017[22].

While oregano oil supplements are common on the market, this version is a micro-emulsified, slow release tablet which we have found to be far superior to a gel cap method of delivery for most patients. The slower release makes for far less side effects and a smoother patient experience.

Why We Love Oregano – The Gut Microbiome – Bacteria and Yeast

I (Dr. Warren) was a couple of years into practice when one of my best friends moved to Portland, OR. Purely in an effort to go visit my friend, I looked for naturopathic/functional medicine conferences in Portland. The West Coast has a very strong naturopathic representation, so it wasn’t hard and before long I was in Portland at a conference pouring over research on gut health, antibiotics, and natural botanicals. I nick named the conference the “SIBO” conference (Short for small intestine bacterial overgrowth). Although we spent a great deal of time going into how SIBO was a rather terrible name, as one could have Yeast overgrowth as well as so it could be “SIBO” or “SIYO” and then a researcher was proposing “SIMO” for small intestinal Microbial overgrowth to cover both together. My head got a little dizzy in the argument. We care much more about how to fix something and improve a patient’s life than whatever you want to name it…Most of our patients have the same feeling.

Getting back to the point. At this conference I was first presented with research on oregano oil and found this particular, time release version of Oregano which has been far superior to other forms I have tried over the years. When Dr. Paul and I joined our practices together in 2015, I shared this particular product with him, and we have both found it to be an essential part of many of our gut microbiome protocols.

One of the problems we see frequently with medical antibiotic therapy is the propensity for a patient to get a yeast infection when on an antibiotic. Oregano can be helpful in these situations as it has both anti-yeast and anti-bacterial properties making it a great choice to help the whole microbiome.

Why We Love Oregano – Smash Through Those Lyme Biofilms

I was using Oregano in the clinic to help nutritionally support patients with gut balancing protocols for years before chronic Lyme Disease patients took over the clinic. When I first began, I had never heard anyone at a Lyme conference or in a Lyme book talk about Oregano oil. I used it, in my own mind to try and help my Lyme patients have a healthier gut. I figured if it was effective against Gram Negative bacteria it would at least help the gut and might even be useful against Lyme.

It wasn’t until 2017 that a study came out that helped me understand better what I was observing with patients. The joint study with John Hopkins and Harvard in 2017 (cited above) found that Oregano oil was an excellent agent for killing Lyme Disease in the lab. I remember being excited when I first read this study. This was the first study I had seen linking oregano oil to Lyme Disease. (It is always nice to have research pop up that backs up what you are observing in the clinic to be true with patients).

While this research article was exciting at the time…and I found myself using oregano oil extensively in my practice, one of the main points of why Oregano oil works so well eluded me until 2020. I was at a virtual conference and one of the speakers brought up this study and started lecturing through the findings. I had heard this before, but if I am at a conference I do try to listen and take notes as enthusiastically as the first time going through information. I was shocked to hear the speaker state that not only is oregano useful for Lyme-killing, but it was terrific at penetrating biofilms!

Biofilms are important because they can block other medications or natural therapies from being effective in a chronic Lyme patient. I have personally found oregano oil to be superior to the enzyme based biofilm busting strategies. The importance of breaking through biofilms is that if you use oregano oil to break through biofilm, not only can oregano directly inhibit a variety of microbes but by breaking down the biofilm, it can help other therapies you might be doing be more effective. This means Oregano oil enhances and synergizes well as part of a more complete Lyme support program.
