How diagnosed?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

the question is ?


 


Will oregano oil ,have any effect on the action of WARFARIN


 


 

Expert:  DrRussMD replied 3 years ago.
Here are the problems.
That interaction is not studied, but based on laboratory action, it could cause an increased risk of bleeding.

Also based on cell studies, the oral ingestion of oregano can cause DNA damage, thus act as a cancer initiator, as any such highly volatile oil can when taken internally.

IN addition, there is no clinical evidence at all that this will help with a candida infection.

So
It is a waste of money and potentially dangerous.
