Credit: Rawf8 Reviewed by Dr. Michael Kessler, DC What Is Oil of Oregano? Oil of oregano, also called oregano oil, is a herbal supplement most commonly used to prevent or treat certain respiratory illnesses. There are some folks out there who swear by oil of oregano for cold prevention, while it’s also used for cold and flu symptom treatment. Much of the information on oil of oregano’s benefits is anecdotal, yet there is some scientific research indicating it may exhibit antiviral and antibacterial effects. You probably know of oregano (Origanum vulgare) through cooking. If you like Italian food, you’re certainly well-acquainted with the small, bushy herb with a slightly minty flavor (which also happens to belong to the mint family). But aside from its taste, oregano features high levels of compounds that are known to have antiviral, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, and antioxidant effects.

DENVER — The Colorado Supreme Court said Monday that state law does not allow regulators to make public health and the environment their top priority when setting rules for oil and gas drilling.The ruling said state law requires regulators to “foster” oil and gas production while protecting public health and the environment. But the court says regulators must take into account whether those protections are cost-effective and technically feasible.The ruling is a victory for the industry, but tighter state rules might still be ahead because Democrats now control the Legislature and the governor’s office.Newly elected Gov. Jared Polis wants local governments to have more control over the industry, which could result in more restrictions on how close wells can be drilled to homes and schools.Community advocates and environmental groups wanted the court to rule that health and the environment should take precedence over oil and gas production. That could have brought … [Read more...] about Colorado Supreme Court rebuffs health and safety groups on oil and gas drilling

opinion Tim Huelskamp and James Taylor Published 9:57 PM EST Dec 26, 2018 For the first time since at least the 1940s, the United States is exporting more oil and petroleum than it imports, spurring economic growth. This accomplishment is due in large part to President Donald Trump’s decision to remove onerous Obama-era restrictions on oil production on federal lands, and it fulfills a long-stated public policy dream that only recently seemed achievable. Just one decade ago, technological advancements in directional drilling and hydraulic fracturing—commonly called “fracking”—created a surge in U.S. oil production. Oil production from fiscal year 2009 through 2017 more than doubled on private and state-owned lands, thanks almost entirely to the fracking revolution. However, during the same period on federal lands, there was virtually no change in oil production. Although oil producers were able to better extract oil from leased federal … [Read more...] about Under Trump, U.S. becomes oil exporter
About Psoriasis and Essential Oils for Psoriasis Psoriasis is a common skin condition where a person’s skin cells replicate too quickly. With nowhere to go, new skin cells accumulate under the skin’s surface. Psoriasis is thought to affect more than three percent of the U.S. population, or more than 5 million American adults at any given time. Relief from this condition can come in the form of essential oils for psoriasis. Essential oils can be used as a complementary therapy. While much of the evidence is anecdotal, there is also some research that supports essential oils for psoriasis. The buildup of cells associated with psoriasis creates patches of swollen and red skin with silvery or whitish scales. They can appear anywhere on the body, but most often develop on the elbows, knees, buttocks, scalp, feet, neck, face, hands, and backs of the wrists. Other psoriasis symptoms include joint pain, inflammation, fatigue, impaired immune function, brain fog, allergies, and … [Read more...] about Essential Oils for Psoriasis and How To Use Them
