I could easily talk about garlic for a month, so I will.  February will be a celebration of the benefits of garlic.  I had a natural doctor for a very long time and he said, if you can’t smell the garlic coming out of your pores, you haven’t been getting enough!  I remember watching old scary movies, not that scary compared to today’s, but plenty scary for me, and garlic was used to ward off vampires and other evils. I don’t believe that it works like the movies portrayed, but I do believe garlic has the power to ward off a lot of ills. The Latin name for garlic is Allium sativa and it is from the onion family. My usual disclaimer always holds, everything doesn’t work for everybody.  I have used it often for myself and my family with great results. Be objective, given a chance and time, you might be happy too. A few cautions, some may find it is irritating to their digestion and may cause heartburn and flatulence. Also, not recommended for nursing mothers. I have used it like a pro biotic. When you feel a cold or virus coming, or if everyone around you is sick, cut up a clove real small and swallow like a pill.I have always saute it lightly in my soup base if I was feeling under the weather I have used it on warts and corns. Sore throats, you could bite it in the back of your mouth and let the allicin drip down for a positive effect (WARNING:it could burn and definitely causes bad breath!). It may not sound that appealing, but I have preferred it to the alternatives.  Maybe you will too.  Of course this must be combined with a wholesome diet for best results.



Though I attend several of her classes, where Darla truly shines is as a personal trainer and
health coach. She saw where I was, and helped me to get where I wanted to be, even though I
wasn’t sure I was communicating it clearly. After just a year my Dr. was amazed to report my
bone density had improved, and my overall health was enhanced. Darla keeps training fresh,
challenging, and enjoyable; and she is always supportive and encouraging. During this time of
sheltering I have been continuing my training sessions via Skype, and her eagle eye doesn’t
miss a thing…still correcting my form and pushing me to go beyond where I thought I could go.
Thank you doesn’t seem nearly enough for someone who got me back on a positive health track
that has enriched body, mind and spirit. But thank you anyway, Darla.
