A chicken farm is using oregano in place of antibiotics.

Sometimes the best remedies are found in nature. A chicken farm in Fredericksburg, Pennsylvania is utilizing oregano to feed chickens.

The company, Bell & Evans is home to loose oregano lying around in trays and barrels of oregano oil. For approximately three years, the chickens have been fed a diet laced with oregano oil along with a little bit of cinnamon.

Bell & Evans opt for the herbal remedy to fight off bacterial diseases without using antibiotics, as they are said to be harmful to humans who consume the meat. The owner of the company, Scott Sechler pledges to avoid antibiotics.

He speaks of the oregano approach, stating “I have worried a bit about how I’m going to sound talking about this. But I really do think we’re on to something here.”

Earlier this year, a 72-year-old relied on nature to rid Crohn’s disease by consuming tree bark. Marlene Barnes began experimenting with trees approximately 16 years ago, after being told that bark may be able to help.
She traveled around Europe to experiment with different types of bark. Barnes takes in roughly 120 ml of bark daily and amazingly her doctor claims that she is now free of Crohn's disease.
