Success, but a Long Way to Go

After using the oil of oregano and olive leaf extract for a few days, another urine test was done, and the results were normal. I guess my theory worked. The next problem we have to face and overcome is that my mother won't eat. I found out today that
a feeding tube is something that is surgically inserted into the stomach. This is something that I wouldn't subject her to, nor is it something that I could deal with. So we have to get her to eat!!
I know that she can eat because she has recently eaten whole foods, chewed them, and also swallowed. The problem is that she won't do it consistently. Sometimes she chews and chews, and then spits everything out.
From recent medications for the UTI and also from lack of eating solid foods (I have been pureeing all foods.), she has developed a brown coating on her tough. Through more research, I have found out that this could be dead cells on the tongue that would normally
be removed through normal eating. This coating can affect the taste buds. So food can taste awful. Even plain water tastes bad to her. So I started brushing her tongue with a soft toothbrush, and will get a tongue scrape tomorrow. Hopefully, this will make
eating more enjoyable for her and will eliminate the hour fight we have at every meal time to get food into her. I will update on this endeavor in later posts.
For those of you that had in interest in oil of oregano and olive leaf extract, I have to say that I have had amazing results with both, and sometimes I use them together. Both are antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal, and both are high in antioxidants.
Both are available on Amazon.com in addition to other supplemental web sites. You just need to compare quality and strength. The olive leaf extract I have found only in capsules, and the oil of oregano is available in both a liquid and a gel capsule.
Before I found out about the oil of oregano, I had a severe digestive problem that caused constant diarrhea. Every time I ate, I got stomach pains, and had to make it to the bathroom immediately. I went to a couple of doctors that had theories on what the problem
might be, but none of them could do anything about it. A friend of mine told me about oil of oregano and suggested that I try this and an old time probiotic. At this point, I had nothing to lose. So I tried it. Within 1 week, my problem went away. No more
digestive problems and no more stomach pains!! At the time I used the liquid oil of oregano, and, believe me, the taste was awful. It burns all the way down. Now I have found the capsules, and they are so much easier to take. The liquid form does still have
it's uses, though. This can be used for nail fungus, and for curing any infections of the skin. It also helps to heal.
As for the olive leaf extract, I have opened capsules on my dog's food to cure a yeast infection in her ears, and my husband has been taking it for his skin cancer. He had been taking it for only a couple of months before his last visit to the dermatologist,
and he had many less breakouts of new cancer areas than the previous visit. Hopefully, the next visit there will be no new lesions.
I know a lot of people are skeptical about natural remedies, but I have seen real results with these where conventional medicine had no answers. As for supplements that I am trying for my mother to stop or reverse her dementia, I can't quit until there is no
hope. The only way there is no hope for her is if I quit. As hard as it is sometimes, I can't do that. I have to believe that there is an answer, and I will find it.
