Description

If I had to pick an herb to take with to ABC's Survivor Show , I would have garlic in my little leather bag. If it was used way back by the builders of the Egyptian pyramids for strength and endurance then it has an old old track record, give me some of that!

Garlic has many healing attributes in its favor. It is antifungal, antibacterial which means it will help to heal athletes foot, jock itch and ringworm by taking it internally and externally It can also assist with the healing of a yeast infection. Warm garlic oil helps to heal an earache caused by bacteria.

Besides warding off vampires it can also fend off a cold, flu or sore throat due to its allicin content.
Alliin is a complex sulfur compound that is changed to allicin by crushing. It's like magic! Pop some fresh garlic in your mouth, crush it with your teeth and natures takes the signal to change the alliin into allicin so the healing can begin.

Research is showing promising results in garlic's ability to fight off cancer cells, especially the cells that attack the digestive system, the breast, and the prostate gland. A chemical called allyl sulfide is thought to be responsible for the cancer fighting ability.

Garlic also has the ability to make your blood thinner and less sticky which means it helps to prevent the platelets from building plaque up in your arteries. This helps to maintain the flexibility of the arteries in the heart. That means that the heart won't have to work so hard to do a normal job.

I tend to believe the whole plant theory . This means that when a plant is picked, dried, freeze dried, smashed, extracted, deodorized , standardized, it will lose some or all of its healing benefits. I feel that fresh garlic or dried powdered garlic gives the best healing benefits.

Caution: Big doses of garlic may intensify the effect of coumadin or aspirin.
  We also give our horses garlic to help control flies.
