Why and How Use Garlic ?Oct 28, 2015Published by Wendy
The Power Garlic
Garlic is a powerful, natural antibiotic that doesn’t kill off the healthy bacteria like the drug forms do. Unlike chemical antibiotics, garlic is also an effective antiviral and antifungal, so by just taking just a few cloves of garlic each day, you can rid yourself of infections. Garlic has a proven track record for being an excellent item to fight bacteria including, viral, fungal and parasitic infections even eliminating staph, strep among others. To put the power of Garlic into perspective, one study took seven AIDS patients, who all had normal T-cell activity (which is a key indicator of the active AIDS infection) after taking the equivalent of two or four garlic cloves each day for three months. While AIDS may be a rather extreme affliction, being one of the most dreaded conditions on the planet, it’s helpful in demonstrating the powerful effects of garlic. These patients also showed improvement with other problems like chronic diarrhea, candida overgrowth, genital herpes and chronic sinus infections. Garlic has also been found to be helpful for conditions including diabetes, high blood pressure, allergies, toothaches, cancer, impotence, cold & flu, heart disease and high cholesterol. And one major point is the fact that a one month supply would be only a few bucks at your local store or organic market.
How To Use Garlic
For garlic to be effective as a healing agent and general antibiotic, it needs to be raw. It should also be crushed and exposed to air for ten minutes before it’s consumed to fully activate its key germ-killing compound. Cooking garlic does cause it to lose some of the medicinal benefits.The active compound in garlic is allicin, which is similar to penicillin. Applying garlic oil to the skin can treat scrapes and burns, and dropped in the ear to fight ear infections. The most effect treatment methods have been placing raw garlic under the tongue, or drinking the juice to rapidly absorb the healing properties, but because this herb is rather strong and pungent, taking garlic pills might be a better option.
Using raw garlic doesn’t have to taste awful, many simple recipes can be whipped up rather easily. If you have an infection, you can enjoy drinks or soups each day to battle illness away without the use of chemical antibiotics that will destroy your good bacteria.
If you don’t have a juicer, simply toss the ingredients into a blender and make a tomato and garlic soup. To either, just add some sea salt; it’ll be delicious.
