Using Oil of Oregano for Gastritis and Stomach Pain
by Joan Burk (Canada)
I heard about Oil of Oregano from a friend and tried using it for an upset stomach. I have found it to be very effective and love it.
Within 5 minutes of taking Oil of Oregano my stomach ache was gone. I’ve also used Oil of Oregano to treat my husband’s athlete’s feet. He noticed an extreme difference. I love Oil of Oregano and will continue to use it.
Oil of Oregano for Gastritis by Ann Najjar (Middleburg Heights, Ohio)
Honestly, I just hate to see the doctor. Test after test just kills me. I have been having severe gastric/esophageal pain for the last month. I lost weight because of not being able to eat, sleep, get comfortable. It has been really bad.
On a whim, one night after excruciating pain and being unable to sleep, I took 5 drops of oil of oregano and laid back down. To my great surprise, the symptoms I had heretofore been unable to get rid of had completely subsided.
The excruciating pain has not yet returned, and I am on my third day of taking 5 drops of oil of oregano just once a day. It is amazing and thank God, no doctor for me!
According to the U.S. National Library of Medicine, gastritis usually occurs when the lining of the stomach becomes inflamed or irritated.
The most common causes of gastritis are taking certain medications for long periods of time, such as aspirin and ibuprofen. Other causes may be bacterial or viral infections, bile reflux, alcohol abuse or extreme stress.
Treating gastritis may depend on the cause; you may have to discontinue taking aspirin or ibuprofen, treat any underlying bacterial or viral infections or make lifestyle changes.
While testing for gastritis may involve blood tests or stool tests, it’s possible your gastritis may be caused by a bacterial or viral infection.
Research shows that oil of oregano contains carvacrol and thymol; ingredients that are effective against bacteria E. coli, Listeria, Salmonella and specific strains of fungi.
The U.S. Library of Medicine recommends people with gastritis consult with a doctor should pain in the upper part of the belly or abdomen doesn’t go away, they have black or tarry stools, or there is vomiting of blood or coffee-ground-like material.
Oil of Oregano Causing Abdominal Pain
by Amy (Virginia)
Can oregano oil cause severe abdominal pain, cramping and diarrhea? The first time I took several drops several times a day it got so bad that I became extremely nauseous and developed the worst migraines I’d ever had in my life. My ND told me to stop taking it cause it can be toxic and hopefully I hadn’t given myself and ulcer. The second time I was taking it as part of a candida cleanse and by the second day the abdominal pain, cramping and diarrhea started again. I stopped taking the liquid part of the cleanse immediately since I did not want it to get as bad as last time. However, when I take oregano oil in a powdered capsule form it does not cause these symptoms. Any help would greatly be appreciated as I am trying to get fungus under control to stop my eczema.

Using Oil of Oregano for Intestinal Pain and Discomfort
by Tammy Fisher (Lehigh Acres, FL)
I have had lower pelvic pain for about 2 months now. It comes and go. Went to ER and then couldn’t find anything wrong. Wanted to do exploratory surgery on me, i told them no and checked myself out of hospital. I asked a friend and she said to try Oil of Oregano. I have taken for 2 days now and can tell a difference already. I am starting to feel better and the pain is not as bad.
