In “The Miracle of Wild Oregano” Dr. Cass Ingram’s description of Wild oregano is the most powerful natural medicine known to man.
The historical use of wild oregano, including the fact that this is the healing “hyssop” of the law (of the Bible). This wonderful essential oil is made from two plant genus, Originum Compactum and Originum Vulgare. Dr. Ingram also reports that this oil, Originum Volare, was tested against aggressive germs, including the cold, flu and even bird flu viruses. In all cases the wild oregano oil destroyed the viruses. Wild oregano helps: reverse digestive complaints; boost the immune system; cleanse the body of dangerous germs, including fungi, yeasts, bacteria, and viruses; preserve the body from aging and disease because of its potent antioxidant action; and protect people of all age groups from common illnesses, including infants, toddlers and even pets.
Oil of oregano should have a carvacrol content of 90 % or more, and should only be bought by botanical name and 100% pure undiluted oil.
A comparative study of the traditional use of oregano-like herbs in the Mediterranean region provides convincing evidence that the hyssop of the Bible is the carvacrol chemotype of the plant Majorana syriaca. The ancient tradition of ritual use of this plant gave rise to two cultures of condiments: za’atar in the Middle East and oregano in Europe.
The flavor of the original hyssop was the determining factor in this development and remained unchanged in oregano and za’atar throughout the centuries.
Inscribed on clay tablets thousands of years old (found in the Mid East), were instructions on how to “anoint” (or purify) those attending religious meetings. “Hyssop” (mentioned in the Bible and now known as the ancient herb Oregano) was used by boiling water that had the oregano leaves in it, then rinsing the hands and feet of the participants with this potent mixture.
The oil extracted from the culinary herb is considered similar to the oil extracted from marjoram and basil, all belonging to the Labietea (mint) family of plants. The miraculous virtues of oregano oil are attributed to the amount of carvacrol and thymol the oil actually contains. Carvacrol and thymol are the active ingredients giving the oil its reputable antiseptic properties.
