    I had an awful experience today:

    I had my lemon water, with oregano oil – 4 drops, and 3 big tsps of coconut oil and a Mega Flora first thing before eating anything. 1 hour later when I was just about to leave the house, I had severe stomach cramps and diarrhea same as I mentioned happened once before.(In my last post 9 weeks… + questions).
    This time it was so scary I nearly called an ambulance! I went dizzy, had a rushing weird tone sound with the dizziness all in my head and body, my arms ached, I had a severe pain in the back of my head… I tried to get to the phone and my legs collapsed from under me and I was on the floor. Severe cramps again so I had pull myself back to the toilet. This time I seized up and couldn’t move. Thought I was going to pass out and struggled to make my fingers dial my husband. My voice hardly worked. (He came home from work.)I didn’t think I could wait for him but I lay on the bed sweating and freezing cold and I didn’t get worse. I slowly felt a bit better but I’ve been dizzy all day and can’t walk without wobbling and nearly collapsing.

    Now I’m scared to take Oregano Oil.

    Do you think I should take the Oregano Oil with food? Is it the Oregano oil or the Coconut oil doing this? Or the combination?

    Help!?

    I already questioned this and other things in my last update. Now I’m really scared.

    Sue.

    Wow that sounds like a really bad reaction. Sorry to hear that, but hopefully you are ok.

    Have you never taken oil of oregano before?
    It is a very powerful antifungal, but also an antimicrobial which means it will kill bacteria, good and bad.
    For one you’re supposed to take probiotics first thing in the morning, on their own with at least a half glass of water, with nothing else so it doesn’t interfere en route to the gut.
    For two, you should only take antifungals at least an hour away from the probiotics since many are antibacterial, such as the lemon water you had. Make sure you split them apart from now on.

    My guess is not only did you kill many of the good bacteria, you may have a sensitivity to oil of oregano such as it says on the bottle. Do you have any reactions to similar plant species – lavender, basil, thyme, mint…?

    You could try adding the drops slowly, starting with 3 a day.
    1 drop in a glass of water X 3 about 30 minutes before a meal each day.
    Then as you overcome any die-off, up this until you’re able to have 3 drop 3 times a day.

    Do not go overboard with oregano oil, since you are taking probiotics and this will destroy them too.

    Thanks. This is good advice!
    I have been having Oregano oil three times a day for a few weeks now. had no trouble except a week or so ago had a similar but not so bad reaction. Just the cramps and diarrhea.

    You are right I should be taking the probiotics and antifungals separately. Silly me. Not much time before running out the door to separate them but i will have to find a way.
    Did a bit of research today and I’m sure it was the Oregano oil that did it!
    Just had 3 drops again so will see – lots of water this time and food soon!
    Haven’t had any problems with thyme, basil, lavender, mint but I will have to keep an eye on this.

    Thanks again.

    Sue, why don’t you read your other post where you asked the very same question? I replied to that post this moring with, “Stop taking the oregano oil.” Your treatment does not depend on oregano oil, and there are other angifungals that work just as well or better.

    I also replied to your other concerns.
