Oil of oregano…
In my last post…I bitch about the dental community and the conflicting treatment plans I received to treat my dental infection in tooth #14.
This morning, I visited the endodontist for a consult for re-treatment of a 20-year-old root canal. He x-rayed me and said was infected…however from my recollection of the x-ray taken last week…the infection looked smaller.
Then an hour later I’m having my tooth extracted at the oral surgeon’s who said he didn’t see an infection.
Perhaps it was the angle of the x-ray or the use of oil of oregano.
I don’t know. Upon reflection…I started taking 2 caps of Now Foods Oil of Oregano 3x a day for the past two weeks because I can’t take antibiotics and I knew this tooth was infected.
Could it be that oregano was helping me to fight this infection?
Huh. I really should try to get a hold of those x-rays before I jump to conclusions and compare.
I will say though…this has been the most troublesome extraction. I’ve never experienced so much pain and inability to form a clot. It’s been 7 hours and still bleeding.
Thank god I have ice cream and bananas. Looks like that’s the diet for the next couple of days.
