A leader on the team I'm on posted something in our Facebook group that I found so interesting. I've thought you couldn't take Oregano every day, but I was wrong! Here's what she wrote:
Today I discovered that I had learned something wrong and I've taught it wrong. Like many of us, my understanding was that we should not take Oregano for more than about 2 weeks consecutively so as not to disrupt our gut's good bacteria.
MYTH!!! I had no idea. While this concept makes perfect sense, science shows us something completely different. In an online discussion today, our VP Emily Wright chimed in to clarify this issue to us:
"I am traveling and don't have access to the research handy, but this is exactly with Jennifer Edens, PhD, conducted her research on. She was able to prove that essential oils do not attack the friendly bacteria in the gut. This is one of those things that leave scientists scratching their head because they can't explain it. I trump it up to the oils having an intelligence that we cannot fully comprehend and will never be able to mimic. That's the beauty of nature's perfection!"
