Garlic

Posted in Food, General, Health, Nutrition

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.
