I am not saying that capsules are useless, I am just emphasizing how much more potent and amazing the real garlic is and how we are diluting it's healing properties vastly by take it in capsule form. There have been many studies lately about the connection between treating Chronic Lymes, Parasites, Chronic Yeast, Ebstein Barr Virus, Mono and even Strep throat with eating plenty of fresh garlic. What I like is that I have incorporated the garlic into my diet and meal preparation so that I actually look forward to eating it. In the am, I take 6-8 cloves peel them and used a pestle and mortar and crush it up making sure you get the juices flowing out of the center of the clove, this is where most of the healing power comes from. I toast 2 pieces of ezeikiel bread and spread some raw coconut oil and layer half of the garlic on each slice of bread. Then I sprinkle a pinch of celtic sea salt and eat away. CAUTION: never peel and eat garlic cloves by themselves as you will regret it. I have tried it and immediately felt sick to my stomach and even like vomiting. You need some food to buffer the intensity but trust me with a little food you'd surprised how many cloves you can down without even thinking about it.
Another great way is to make some salsa up and get you cloves in that way. Just use some gluten free crackers or rice cakes to put the healing salsa on.
My experience from fresh garlic has been:
Stopping cold and flus in there tracks
Massive die off of yeast and candidia
Reduction of sore throat and sinus infections
Helping chelate heavy metals out of body
Reduction in joint pain from Lymes and Lymes symptoms.
Actually a raw food enthusiast and colleague of mine swears he cured his chronic lyme infection with intensive garlic therapy.
So try it and by the way cooked or roasted garlic doesn't cut it either, it must be RAW RAW RAW. Ta ta for now. Namaste and Happy Summer, I myself cannot wait for this summer to get going. There are so many wonderful events, workshops and music that I planning to attend...of coarse I will keep you in the loop. xoxo
