Curing a UTI (Urinary Tract Infection) with Oregano Oil


Urinary Tract Infection noun
Infection of any part of the urinary tract, esp. the urethra or bladder, usually caused by a bacterium, Escherichia coli, and often precipitated by increased sexual activity, vaginitis, enlargement of the prostate, or stress. Abbreviation: UTI

Treatment
Oregano oil: Twice a day, for three days, ingest 2-3 drops, diluted in a mind oil such as olive oil, or juice (undiluted, it will burn your mouth!). When I did it, I felt relief after the first day, but just as with antibiotics, it’s important to take it for the full three days to ensure the responsible bacteria have been killed off.

While I have read that this is sufficient all on it’s own to rid one of a UTI, the other thing I feel worth mentioning is that I threw in a clove or 2 of raw chopped garlic into my meals during those days, and the occasional glass of unsweetened, undiluted cranberry juice. It’s doubtful that garlic & cranberry on their own would be enough to solve the problem, but I feel that simple combinations are highly effective in targeting these sort of bacterial issues.

It’s been years since I had one, and I found that simply staying well hydrated is enough to prevent them. Urine after all, is sterile, and peeing flushes out whatever bacteria may have made their way up there.

Comments
The traditional treatment is of course antibiotics, which as you may have already gathered, I have a very low opinion of. As a matter of fact it was the treatment of a UTI which landed me in the hospital over 10 years ago, when a doctor was too lazy to write out a clear prescription, the pharmacy stupidly misinterpreted how many days-worth I should receive despite certain syntactical conventions to guard against these sort of things, and I, in my naive and unquestioning faith in western doctor’s & medicine, did not question it. (The scribble which should have been “3D,” or “3 days” was interpreted as “30,” or “30 days”), Around day 17 I got terribly sick and went to the hospital where the mistake was discovered. A week later my body seemed to develop a delayed allergic reaction, and I was hospitalized with a swollen face, a full-body rash and overwhelming fatigue, which was treated with corticosteroids and antihistamines, and took me a month to recover from. Hence the anti-antibiotic sentiments you will find sprinkled throughout the site.

  1. Natural remedies can often do the trick when it comes to successfully treating UTI. However, it might be necessary for you to treat the urinary tract infection with antibiotics if the natural remedies do not work fast enough. An appointment with your doctor will be best in determining the amount of time you should use a natural remedy before antibiotics need to be proscribed

    I love the smell and taste of Oregano when added in some recipes.';-

  3. LK says:

    Yes, I may try the remedy. But occasionally have severe UTI’s with blood in the urine and extreme pain that puts me in the hospital by day 2 if not taken care of immediately. So while the natural remedy may be effective for mild cases, I’m not so sure about extreme ones.

  4. Anna Penn says:

    I was just diagnosed with UTI but I have no pain just traces of blood in the urine. My doctor referred my to Urologist next weeek. They told me it could be anything from nothing to kidney stones to bladder cancer
    I will try this natural remedy and will post the result.

    The oregano oil I found was already in olive oil . How many drops will I need?

  6. The Macrobiotic Stoner says:

    Crissy – if the oil states the %olive oil & %oregano oil, you could figure it out with the following equation: (100 / %oregano oil) x dosage. However I’d try to get the pure 100% oregano oil if you want to follow the method described – that’s what I used and worked for me, I don’t know how it would work with a combination oil like the one you have.

    I have been plagued with chronic UTI’s since i was first married in 1979.- We found out years later the use of a diaphram was the culprit – the device would hold up the bladder and urine would pool and never empty, causing growth of bacteria in prime conditions of being moist and warm. I was in living hell, peeing fire for much of my married life. Doctors were left scratching their head and taking my money and i never found much relief. That was some 35 years ago and i have tried EVERY SINGLE tincture and rememdy known to man on the market plus seeing a plethera of urologists that knew nothing about how to cure this wretched thing. I have had a revelation over the last week. I started taking oregano oil under the tongue, drops in my water and slathered across my lower tummy area. – today is my 2nd day of no analgesics to stop the burn and my 3rd day of oregano oil and i’m here to report there is NO BURN, NO TWISTING, NO PRESSURE!!! it’s nothing short of a miracle. – i was told we can also use thyme oil as well..AND dont forget to put the oil on the bottoms of the feet as well. I have no faith in the western medical world and as long as i can find plant-based tinctures to use, i will!!! The type of oil i have is mixed with olive oil – other than smelling like an italian buffet i am SO grateful for this very important information!! = )

    I’ve been using oil of oregano and cranberry juice for 3 days now. The pain and urgency is not as severe, but it’s still painful. Probably going to Dr. Tomorrow if not better. I’ve had wonderful luck with the oil of oregano when used to treat sore throat and sinus issues! I was really hopeful it would cure my UTI :-(

    I have cured a kidney infection with oregano oil after 3 different types of dr prescribed antibiotics failed. Sadly many doctors will tell folks not to take- keeps them in business I guess. Great post thanks

    Six years ago I developed a bad UTI (no details needed). I went to a doctor, who put me on Cipro for 10 days. It did nothing (I later found out why). In the meantime, my insurance ran out, and I was still suffering. I called up my friend, author and world renowned fungi expert Doug Kauffmann. He explained to me that a lot of the antibiotics are nothing more than fungal poisons, called mycotoxins. In the huge amounts that make up antibiotics, they are called aflatoxins. They kill off the bacteria, but then take over doing the same thing. They are best followed up with an anti-fungal supplement. Doug had me take Oil of Oregano supplements for 10 days, followed by 10 days of Capryllic Acid supplements, and then 10 days of Clove supplements. I noticed a difference after 3 or 4 days. By the end of the 30 days, it was completely gone, and I’ve never seen a sign. Doug also recommended that I take 2 capsules of Olive Leaf Extract every other night, before going to bed, as a preventive maintenance measure. It’s best at night, to ensure that it stays in the body longer, as you sleep. There are some good doctors out there. Most, however, seem to stay with the AMA teachings. Some of that is worthwhile, but there are more natural alternatives to a lot of it. For more on the subject of fungi, and how it affects your body’s health, I recommend looking up Doug Kauffman online.

    I was having severe pain in my pelvic area and lower back. I thought either a bladder or kidney infection. I have empty gel caps and I put 3 drops of oregano oil in the gel caps and drink with a lot of water. I was doing that twice a day and then decided to take 3 x’s a day after I eat. By day 2 my pain was completely gone. I am a firm believer in oregano oil. I even have my husband taking it. Whenever he feels like he is starting to get sick he puts 3 drops in a glass of orange juice and gulps it down. It is horrible stuff, I can not do it that way. But, he feels like it works better that way. I also have 5 year old twins and I mix 3 drops in a tablespoon of olive oil and rub it on the bottom of their feet and put socks on them when going to bed. I do this when they are sick or when I am trying to keep them from getting sick. Oregano oil is too strong for young children to take internally. Also, I need to add, that I usually have really bad back pain and when I mix olive oil with oregano oil and rub it on it takes the pain away pretty quick for about 3 to 4 hours. It does make you and your clothes stink so make sure you are not going anywhere soon.

    After suffering (and throwing away thousands of dollars on tests and antibiotics that were poisoning me)with a recurrent uti for over a year and a half, I discovered wild oil of oregano. I started with putting it under my tongue several times a day but wasn’t getting the desired results, so I bought a bottle of the gel caps and began taking two every hour until the bottle was empty. I am now symptom free and well. My mind is once again clear and I have energy that I’ve not had in years. So yes, it works!
