Oil of Oregano Benefits

My name is Pieternel and I have been an RN for 27 years.

Early on in life I discovered that medical science had its limitations and started to study alternative medicine,

preventive medicine,

herbology and nutrition. 

All the natural health care products that I am offering or recommend I have tried myself and have had very good to excellent results.

My many friends and clients are very happy with my self-

developed and produced health care products.

Understanding Yeast infection 

Yeast infection also known as Candida Albicans is an illness many people have without being aware of it. Because of my profession I’m talking and seeing many people with health problems almost every day. Often those health problems are direct or indirectly related to Candida or yeast infection and that is what inspired me to write this article for you. This article will show you the symptoms and causes of a yeast infection and provide you with some proven natural treatments to combat a yeast infections. I will also show you  how to do a very simple home test to find out if you have a yeast infection or not. There are many factors involved regarding Candida and the treatment of a yeast infection and therefore I'm giving you a bit of the bigger picture before I move on to precise treatments for candida to get your health back long term. It is not that hard to get rid of  a yeast infection. It just takes some time and consistency in following the guidelines.  
What is a Yeast Infection?

Candida Albicans is a yeast that grows like little patches on the mucus membranes when our immune system is down. In the mouth it is called thrush. It also likes to grow in the vagina. When we are healthy our immune  system protects us from yeast overgrowth.

Yeast infection is a sign that our body is out of balance!

This means our intestines do not function adequate and lack the ability in greater or lesser degree to absorb nutrients and eliminate inadequate. There are many  symptoms (see yeast infection symptoms) but basically you do not have the right amount of energy to live your life fully. It holds you back and diminishes your energy . Some factors can predict your chances  of having candida like: The use of antibiotics, use of certain medications, graving of sugar and/ of use of alcohol. Also, if your partner has a yeast infection you will probably have it too, in a lesser degree.

There is a large group of symptoms related to having Candida. If you have one to three of these symptoms you may have a yeast infection.

Take the home test as it is described at the bottom of this page.

General symptoms are:  

You are tired and low in energy, you have foggy thinking, fear, depression, anxiety, light headiness, arthritis, joint and bone pains.


Cramping, bloating, gas, constipation and/ or  diarrhea, indigestion. You might be prone to food allergies.

Respiratory tract:

Seasonal allergies, colds, asthma, post nasal drips and coughs.


Eczema, itching, rashes, fungal infections and acne.

Gynecological tract: 

Yeast infections, itching, discharge, and redness, possible endometriosis.

If you have these symptoms you most likely have Candida/ yeast infection overgrowth. Take your easy home test and keep reading! 


The following factors play a role in the development of a yeast infection. 



 Antibiotics kill friendly intestinal bacteria which leads to yeast overgrowth and which results in “leaky gut syndrome,” . This is a condition which disturbs the absorption of food particles through the wall of the intestines, direction liver. The result is disturbed absorption and food sensitivities/ food allergies.  The consequence is that the protein that passes through the intestinal wall to the liver is not completely broken down. This is a cause in the development of food allergies. Research also has shown a relationship between breast cancer and overuse of antibiotics.  

Estrogen dominance

 At  age of 35 for women progesterone decreases, and at age 45 for men  testosterone decreases. Estrogen for both sexes increases. Also called the aging process or mid- life crisis or pre/menopause.  After pregnancy and end of cycle for women when estrogen levels tends to go up. Estrogen dominance increases the glucose in mucus, allowing the yeast to multiply. How to naturally balance your hormones? See Prosperine for women, or Prosperon for men.


 The other concern is your intestinal flora. Parasites grow in your intestines and some kind of parasite even recycles estrogen. Especially when we are obese and consume foods with high levels of artificial estrogen (meat and milk and plastic wrapped foods, petroleum products and artificial products like creams and shampoos). Poor hygiene and reinfection through your partner can play a factor as well. 


Natural treatments to heal and prevent a yeast infection.

Oil of Oregano

Oil of Oregano is a natural product that has been proven very effective in treating yeast infection. It needs to be taken with probiotics (kefir) and a healthy diet.It is very effective both on the short and the long term. Oil of Oregano is both anti fungal,  anti yeast and is also very good in boosting your immune system. Besides being anti fungal, it also has anti bacterial and anti viral properties, so whatever misbalance you have in your body the Oil of Oregano will be beneficial for it. Because of this, it gives the body the change to absorb the nutrients we give to our body. Your next responsibility in treating a yeast infection is to give the right foods to your body. I’ll talk about that below. Using my Oil of Oregano you need to take it 3 times a day 6 drops for 6 weeks.

Oil of Oregano Report

I have written a complete report on the uses and benefits of OoO, which I give away for free, together with my book on “self testing” when you buy my Oil of Oregano.


Olive leaf extract

Olive leaf extract also has shown to be very effective in treating yeast infection and is a natural remedy. Yeast infections take a long time to heal and are often chronic. Olive leaf extract can work vey well in this process to restore the good bacteria in your body and has no side effect of resistance when taken over a longer period of time. Besides healing the body from yeast it improves the liver. Olive leaf is a very power detoxifier and the liver is the “detox” factory of our body. This is crucial in maintaining your health. Olive leaf extract regenerates the liver, has anti viral compounds and improves the immune system. It even helps the body to regulate insulin and helps to improve diabetes.

Olive leaf extract has helped people who suffer from hepatitis C and HIV.

Olive leaf extract is very powerful and needs to be balanced with probiotics or kefir.


Your Yeast Infection Diet


The right diet can be a big part of your solution.


Avoid sugar… candida/ yeast overgrowth loves to grow on sugar.
Avoid alcohol... alcohol contains lots of sugar.
Avoid refined starches... Pasta, white flour products, white breads.
Avoid greasy foods and poly saturated oils.  
Eat healthy... preferably organic foods, enough water.
Chew well... so your saliva can do its job.
Eat without stress…stress diminishes the digestive enzymes.
Do not drink with food intake. This affects your digestion negatively.

Avoid, if possible, antibiotics. If you can not avoid them take with acidophilus or kefir.
Use Oil of Oregano instead, a natural antibiotic.

Use Kefir or acidophilus... this helps to restore 85 % of good bacteria in your system.
Many of us seem to have 15 % beneficial bacteria and 85 % bad bacteria in our system.
This is a real threat to our health.
Take a three months course of daily acidophilus or kefir. At least 3 x a day one
tablespoon (it should be kept in the fridge).
Be sure to not get infected by your partner, use condoms and good hygiene.
Kiss your friends on the cheek!

Drink lots of water to clear up your skin.
For local reactions, add Aloe vera on your skin.
For the respiratory tract : Take Vitamin C in large dosage, rinse your nose with salt
water and add a layer of sesame oil to the mucous of the nostril.(Do not inhale sesame oil)
For estrogen dominance: Use hormone free milk and meat and take lots of veggies and
use a natural progesterone cream for women, or a natural hormone cream for men.

 And last, but not least: AVOID SUGAR, you do not want to feed your enemy!  




What after 6 weeks and the test is still positive? 

Good question. It takes in general 6 months to balance your yeast infection and to work on healing. Sometimes longer sometimes shorter, depending on: 

  1. The level of severity of overgrowth of the yeast infection.
  2. The strength of your immune system. If you have, for example, herpes too you might have to do a two weeks aloe vera ½ cup each day. Then a 2 weeks Olive leaf extract treatment of at least 6 drops 3 times  a day, continue on Kefir and or acidophilus.
  3. Stay away from sugar and cardohydrates.
  4. Be consistent in your diet and in using your Oil of Oregano and kefir or acidophilus and testing.
 Good luck and remember- It comes by horse it goes by foot. 

With love Pieternel.

Testing if you have a yeast infection or not


There is a simple self test to help you determine if you have a yeast infection. First thing in the morning, before you put ANYTHING in your mouth, get a clear glass of water. Better still; leave it by your bed the night before. Work up a bit of saliva, and then spit it into the glass of water. Check the water every 15 minutes or so for up to one hour. If you have a candida yeast infection, you will see strings (like legs) traveling down into the water from the saliva floating on the top, or “cloudy” saliva will sink to the bottom of the glass, or cloudy specks will seem to be suspended in the water. If nothing develops in 30 minutes, you’re probably Candida/ yeast free.  Eat two cups of kefir (original version). If you get abdominal cramps and rumbling you most likely have Candida.  

I have made a little video for you to show test more in detail. Please forgive the quality of the video. This is my first one!
