Oil of Oregano is the BEST killer of yeast, and everything else really.
To test to see if you have yeast overgrowth, put a glass of water next to your bed before you go to sleep.
When you wake, before you get up....spit a healthy spit into the glass.
Do your morning routine.
If the spit is white and there are stringy bits sinking into the glass, you've definitely got yeast.
Oil of Oregano is my go to cure all.
It's not a supplement, but a treatment. I take it when I feel illness coming on (which doesn't happen often, so I'm motivated to cut it off at the pass), and I take it during my super busy season to ensure I don't get sick (I own my own business, and my work weeks can be 80 hour ones - during cold and flu season, I cannot afford to be sick).
My kids, when they start to come down with stuff, I give it to them. My youngest is only three and doesn't get the concept of how to take it, so I rub it on her feet, which absorbs into the skin. This is an old healers trick.
My three year old only knows she's taking medicine....and she will go from waking up stuffy and miserable to it cleared up in a matter of hours.
Ensure you get organic oil of oregano. The liquid form. It's nasty. Kills everything considered harmful to the human body.
This remedy goes back to ancient greek times, and the oil was also used in surgical operating rooms to clean instruments prior to the development of chemical cleaners.
To take it, drop 6 drops UNDER your tongue, and take a quick shot of water, goes right down.
In fact, at three am I woke up with a wicked sore throat and swollen glands....I took it at three am, woke up at 8am and while I can still feel something trying to come on, it isn't anywhere near like it was at 3am (fire raging war in my throat). I took some more at 8am, and will take it a few more times before the day is through.
Look for the "wild and organic" variety. there is more of the good stuff in the wild type vs cultivated. I usually pay around 20 dollars for about an ounce. COMPLETELY worth it. The money I save on taking OTC cold and flu meds pays for it in spades.
