I use psyllium everyday. I often make-up shakes that I drink 2 or 3 times a day and I put about half a teaspoon in each of these shakes. The psyllium helps me not to have constant diarrhoea and to bulk up the store store.
The wild oregano oil varies depending on my symptoms. I will copy and paste a little bit of information from one of her books for the IBD remission diet. She also has a small publication you can get online call the "Wild oregano oil protocol" and this will give you far more information
WILD OREGANO OIL • If you sense you also have an intestinal infection (and if you have IBD or IBS you are highly likely to) you will benefit greatly from using Jini’s Wild Oregano Oil Protocol to kill off these pathogenic microoorganisms like yeast, fungus, bad bacteria, mycobacteria and viruses. In that case, you would do Jini’s Wild Oregano Oil Protocol first and then follow with the high dose probiotic supplementation. This will kill the pathogens much faster than just using probiotics alone.
Wild oregano oil is an extremely potent natural anti-bacterial, anti-yeast, anti-fungal, anti-parasitic and anti-viral substance. It is extracted from a particular species of oregano that grows wild in rocky regions of the Mediterranean and has only been used in North America since the early 90s, when Dr. Cass Ingram published his landmark book on wild oregano called, The Cure is in the Cupboard. As such, it is a relatively “new” herbal medicine in the US and not many naturopathic physicians are even fluent in its uses and amazing efficacy. I expect it will gain momentum quickly in the coming years and like all really effective herbal medicines the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) will probably try to ban it before too long!
Most of the scientific research on wild oregano oil is currently coming from the Applied Microbiology field in the area of food preservation. Microbiologists have found that wild oregano oil is so powerful that even minute amounts of it can kill common food-borne pathogens responsible for a lot of the food poisoning incidents with processed food. When I first introduced wild oregano oil to my readers back in 2005, its use with gut disorders was not widespread. However, since then, among my readers alone, thousands have tested and used this herbal extract to rid themselves of intestinal infection. I have used it on myself and my children since 2002 – and I can personally confirm its efficacy for a wide variety of applications involving infectious microorganisms. More recent research has even confirmed wild oregano oil’s ability to eradicate mycobacterium avium paratuberculosis (MAP) – an extremely tenacious pathogen that has been identified in up to 92% of Crohn’s patients (see Appendix B for references).
What To Look For in a Brand
It’s very important to use the correct species of oregano, as different species contain different levels of the principle active ingredients: carvacrol and thymol. Please follow the specifications here to ensure you get the desired results and don’t substitute brands unless they can meet the same criteria (confirmed via an independent lab assay), or you will not see the same results. When purchasing wild oregano oil, make sure you get:
Species: Oreganum vulgare
Subspecies: Hirtum is one of several that work well
For wild oregano oil to be effective, it must be high in naturally occurring carvacrol (ideally 75% or more) – not just have extra carvacrol added in later. If you get a brand with the correct species and subspecies, this will not be a problem. Effective, good quality wild oregano oil should also be low in thymol. Thymol is a naturally occurring compound in oregano oil that must be present as it works synergistically with carvacrol. But, too much is hard on the liver, so check that levels do not exceed 5% maximum. For my brand recommendations, see my LTYG Shoppe.
The dosage given for wild oregano oil in this Protocol is for oregano oil that has already been diluted in a carrier oil (most brands are) like olive oil. Five drops of diluted wild oregano oil is equivalent to one to two drops of pure, undiluted, essential wild oregano oil. If you’re using a brand other than the ones recommended here, check carefully to see whether it’s been diluted or is an essential undiluted oil. Remember to always dilute pure (undiluted, essential) oregano oil in a carrier oil before using internally or externally, or like all essential oils, it can cause tissue damage. The brands I recommend have already been diluted with olive oil, so you don’t need to dilute them further before using in this protocol.
Okay, now that you've got some background on wild oregano oil, here's how you need to take it to eliminate any intestinal infection. Wild oregano oil is also ideal for people with IBD as – although it feels “spicy hot” in the mouth – it is also an anti-inflammatory and is used topically with burn patients.
Jini's Wild Oregano Oil Protocol
• Take 10 drops of wild oregano oil, three to five times a day. I prefer taking it on an empty stomach for maximum efficacy, but it is not necessary. While on the elemental diet, you can take a dose and then 10 minutes later have a shake or some broth. For some reason, numerous readers have found the liquid drops work better than the gel caps – but you can use either. Again, you will need to ramp up gradually (start with just five drops, one to three times a day) and adjust the dosage and frequency to what your body can handle. As you clear pathogens, you will likely be able to handle more.
• Then, just before you go to bed at night (and a minimum of two hours after your last dose of wild oregano oil) take a full dose of probiotics: one teaspoon of each of the three probiotic powders (Megadophilus, Digesta-Lac, Bifido Factor). Extensive experimentation by myself and thousands of readers has shown that you need to combine wild oregano oil with probiotics to get the best results and also avoid unpleasant side effects – so do not skip this vital step.
• Continue on this dosage protocol for three weeks (or longer if your intuition guides you that way), then implement the probiotic supplementation outlined above. If you have a tenacious infection (like mycobacterium avium paratuberculosis – MAP) you will likely need to cycle on and off this protocol every three months or so, for up to two years. So let your body be your guide. The Easiest Way To Take Liquid Wild Oregano Oil Wild oregano oil feels “spicy hot” when you swallow it (or when it touches any mucous membrane). So, the best way to take it is to first take a sip of water and hold it in your mouth, without swallowing. Fill the dropper with 5 to 10 drops of wild oregano oil, tilt your head back and shoot the contents of the dropper into the mouthful of water at the back of your throat. Swallow. Then immediately follow with lots of water or juice, and keep drinking water till the heat sensation disappears (about 10 seconds). Even my daughter, Zara, could take liquid wild oregano oil using this method when she was only five years old. In fact, you can watch Zara demonstrating the easy (no burning!) way to take wild oregano oil in this video:

Alternatively, if you like a hot burning chili sensation, then just shoot the five drops directly into your mouth and enjoy! Remember though, that wild oregano oil is anti-inflammatory and used with burn patients, so although the herb presents in this “hot” way, it’s true action is more complex and healing/soothing. Warning: Do NOT use Jini's Wild Oregano Oil Protocol unless you follow it with the probiotic supplementation described above. If you kill off all the pathogens in your gut, but do not replace them with good bacteria, you run the risk of opportunistic infection. Your Candida albicans (yeast) population will also explode in the absence of good bacteria to keep it in check, so you must follow with therapeutic-quality probiotics at a high dosage.
