Dr. Oz: Oil Of Oregano
Lisa Oz’s Back Pain Remedy: Lisa Oz had suffered with chronic back pain that was caused from a parasite for 9 years. Lisa went to a naturopath who recommended oil of oregano as one of the herbs to cure her back pain.
Oil of oregano is anti-bacterial and anti-parasitic and can be used for all kinds of ailments.
Oil of oregano helps you in 3 ways from getting sick:
1. Gut: Bad bacteria is strong and hard for your immune cells to penetrate. But carvacrol, one of the active ingredients in oil of oregano, helps break down the bad bacteria’s defenses. And unlike a prescription antibiotic, oil of oregano will fight a yeast infection instead of causing one. Try the oregano oil in enteric-coated capsules. Be sure to look for 50% of carvacrol on the label.
2. Mouth: Lisa tells Dr. Oz you can use oil of oregano in your mouth is often the entry point for colds or the flu, and oil of oregano can work as an antiseptic because it contains thymol, the same active ingredient in many brands of mouthwash. Try 2 drops of the oil on your toothbrush with or without toothpaste.
Everyone got a tooth brush today with one drop of oil of oregano on it with tooth paste on top, beware the oil of oregano has a very strong taste to it.
Lisa Oz said to take the oil of oregano and rub it onto a baby’s feet at night, and when older rub it on the chest and leave it there all night. With the child breathing it all night they will wake up feeling better in the morning.
3. Skin: New research reveals bad bacteria on the skin may cause rosacea. And we already know that it contributes to acne. The oil’s bacteria-busting power can help eliminate bacteria. Add a little sesame oil to the oregano oil to dilute it. Then soak a cotton ball in it and dab on the affected area nightly. Apply it before bed so your body has all night to absorb it.

Lisa Oz: Bach’s Hornbeam
The next Oz home remedy Lisa uses for anxiety is Bach’s Hornbeam which comes in a tincture that you put under your tongue. It has a tiny bit of alcohol in it, and by putting it under your tongue, it doesn’t burn.
You can also dilute it with water by mixing two drops into a glass of water.
Dr. Oz: Magnesium Citrate Powder For Constipation
Trouble with constipation? Try a 500 mg capsule a day, or if you have trouble swallowing pills, 1 teaspoon of the powder a day. Mixing it with a glass of orange juice can help mask the taste. Magnesium citrate acts as a natural laxative. Magnesium relaxes intestinal muscles and brings water into the colon to soften stool and move it along more easily.
Lisa Oz: Comfrey Compress For Pain
Comfrey is a medicinal herb, used for centuries to help heal tissue and contains allantoin, a substance that has been found to decrease inflammation and ease pain and swelling from an injury. Lisa Oz uses a cheese cloth and drenches it in comfrey ointment, then she puts it on the affected area. Make sure to not apply comfrey to broken skin or open wounds.
