Oregano [Oreganum vulgare]: a good for EVERYTHING herb/ spice….everyone should have oregano in the kitchen. Don’t forget it for Alzheimer!
Automatically your thought may travel to Italy when you think about this “Pizza herb” but it seems that Turkey is the biggest believer in the magical, medical power of this herb/spice and that it is used for everything over there [I never was in Turkey]
James Duke describes it as the most powerful antioxidant and advises anyone with arthritis/rheumatic complaints to use it on a fixed base.
1 heaped tablespoonful of the herb cover in a glass of boiling water, strain after 10 minutes. Drink in small sips throughout the day.
You can put any “anti” medical property after this herb:
Antiseptic, antiviral, antibacterial[a whole range of bacteria], antifungal, anticandidal, antispasmodic, slightly anticonvulsive, sedative, all gastrointestinal problems [gas, nausea, but be careful to use only small amounts in pregnancy], against a lot of intestinal parasites even for Blastocytis hominis, Entamoeba hartmanni, or Endolimax nana] Helps to sweat when you have a fever, for bronchitis/asthma, menstrual problems [spasms, amenorrhea], muscle spasms, stiff neck. And oregano is a must for every Alzheimer patient, probably better than all patented drugs.
Simply, everyone should have oregano in the kitchen.
