Strep throat is caused by Streptococcus, originol
oil, cinnamon and green tea, may help it.
Note: Strep is not something to experiment
with, it is too dangerous. I do not like antibiotics
and they are over prescribed, however I do not recommend
substituting herbs when an antibiotic may be the safest
Strep Throat is caused by
Streptococcus. "Streptococcus is a genus of spherical
Gram-positive bacteria belonging to the phylum Firmicutes
and the lactic acid bacteria group. Cellular division"
kills Streptococcus. "The
essential oils (EOs) obtained by solvent-free microwave
extraction (SFME) and hydrodistillation (HD) from endemic
Origanum husnucanbaseri H. Duman, Aytac & A. Duran were
investigated using the gas chromatography-mass spectrometry
system. The main constituents of both oils obtained from
SFME and HD from O. husnucanbaseri are borneol (15.2-12.8%),
a-terpineol (12.3-10.8%) and trans-sabinene hydrate (11.8-9.92%).
The EO obtained from SFME contained substantially higher
amounts of oxygenated compounds and lower amounts of monoterpenes
than that from HD. The antibacterial activities of the EOs
from SFME and HD were evaluated by the disc diffusion method
against six bacterial strains. The EO extracted by SFME
was more effective than the EO extracted by HD against the
tested bacteria, except for Klebsiella pneumoniae American
type culture collection (ATCC) 13883. Streptococcus pyogenes
ATCC 19615 and Staphylococcus aureus ATCC 25923 in particular
were more sensitive against the EO extracted by SFME".
antimicrobial activities of the ethyl acetate, acetone and
methanol extract of 12 plant species were studied. The extract
of Capsicum annuum (red pepper)
(fruit) Zingiber officinale (ginger)
(root), Cuminum cyminum (cumin),
Alpinia ficinarum (galingale),
Coriandrum sativum (coriander),
Cinnamomun zeylanicum Nees
(cinnamomun), Origanum onites L. (thyme),
Folium sennae (senna), Eugenia
caryophyllata (cloves), Flos
tiliae (lime), Folium menthae
crispae (peppermint) and Piper
nigrum (blackpepper) were tested
in vitro against 2 fungi and 8 bacterial species by the
disc diffusion method. Klebsiella pneumonia 13883, Bacillus
megaterium NRS, Pseudomonas aeroginosa ATCC 27859, Staphylococcus
aureus 6538 P, Escherichia coil ATCC 8739, Enterobacter
cloaca ATCC 13047, Corynebacterium xerosis UC 9165, Streptococcus
faecalis DC 74, Kluyveromyces marxianus, Rhodotorula rubra
were used in this investigation. The results indicated that
extracts of different spices has shown antibacterial activity
in the range of 7-24 mm 30 microl(-1) inhibition zone Eugenia
caryophyllata (clove), 7-20 mm 30microl(-1) inhibition zone
Capsicum annum (red pepper) and Cinnamomun zeylanicum (cinnamon)
bark, 7-18 mm 30microl(-1) inhibition zone Folium sennae
(senna) leaves, 7-16 mm 30 microl(-1) inhibition zone Zingiber
officinale (ginger) root, 7-15 mm 30microl(-1) inhibition
zone Cuminum cyminum (cumin) seed, 7-14 mm 30 microl(-1)
inhibition zone Folium menthae crispae (peppermint), Origanum
onites (thyme) leaves and Alpinia ficinarum (galingale)
root, 7-12 mm 30 microl(-1) inhibiton zone Piper nigrum
(blackpepper), 7-11 mm 30microl(-1) inhibition zone Flos
tiliae (lime) leaves, 7-8 mm 30microl(-1) inhibition zone
Coriandrum sativum (coriander) to the microorganisms tested.
