My son had a sore throat for 3 days and was feeling so terrible I thought he might have mono. I brought him to the Dr. who did a throat culture that confirmed strep throat. I accepted the antibiotic prescription she gave us but didn't want to have it filled until I checked Earth Clinic. I have been a loyal reader for years and always recommend it to anyone who is sick. Anyway, since my son balks at taking the apple cider vinegar I decided to give oil of oregano a try before giving in to antibiotics. My kids have never had antibiotics, I have tried to steer clear of them so as to allow them to build a good immune system. I ended up buying oregano spirits, which is a tincture in alcohol, by mistake but it worked just fine. Within hours of his first dose there was a noticeable improvement and by the next day he was back to his old self. I gave him 10 drops in a glass of water every 6 hours for a day (I followed the dosing on the bottle). It worked like a charm.
Also, I read the post about using it on a cold sore and tried it when I felt one coming on my lip. I have tried Acetone, ACV, L- Arganine, and over the counter solutions but never had one stop right in its tracks like it did when I put the tiniest little bit on. Amazing! I will never be without a bottle of this in the house. Just had to share this with others as I was completely impressed!
