Oregano tea to cure flu, strep throat and sinus infections.
It’s that time of year again when avoiding catching infections becomes incredibly hard.
The cold weather weakens our immune systems and it seems wherever you turn people are suffering with colds and flu.
Each year, the pharmaceutical industry makes millions selling the same old chemical ‘cures’ which actually make little to no difference.
In looking to cure infections and colds, we believe that natural is best.
There are many of alternative therapies available that have been passed down over thousands of years which can rival the over the counter remedies.
Oregano is one of these remedies.
You will probably only have ever used oregano in Italian style cooking, it gives that authentic Italian taste to pasta and pizza dishes.
But this herb is actually a really potent medicinal spice.
It has the ability in helping the body cure itself of colds, flu, strep throat and sinus infections.
Oregano is so potent at healing due to the high levels of phytonutrients and antioxidants such as thymol and rosemary acid.
It is also packed with vitamins A, C, and E, as well as minerals like magnesium, zinc, iron, potassium, and calcium.
It has high antioxidant properties which means it is also helpful in protecting the body from free radicals – these rogue cells can cause cancer.
Oregano tea is one of the best ways to nourish the body with the healing power of its ingredients.
Take oregano tea on a daily basis throughout the cold winter months and you will quickly notice a difference.
You will start to feel the boost you get when your immune system is working at its strongest.
The antiseptic properties of oregano mean that any nasty infections in the throat and nasal tract will be cleared up quickly.
It helps the entire body to feel better due to the abundance of diuretic, antifungal, carminative, and diaphoretic characteristics.
No longer should this herb be used only in cooking, utilize its power to help ward off infections.
