Greeks called it stinking rose. Garlic was
worshipped by the ancient
Egyptians and chewed by Greek Olympian athletes; it was a mainstay in
of the builders of the pyramids and of ancient Greek and Roman soldiers
sailors. The wandering Israelites
mourned the cherished garlic they had left behind in
Rich in: Most of garlic’s health benefits derive from the more than 100 sulphur compounds it contains, especially allicin, which is responsible for garlic's characteristic scent and flavour. Allicin is formed when the garlic bulbs are crushed, chopped, or chewed.
Internal use: Garlic has been rightfully attributed with miraculous healing and health-giving powers. It has been scientifically proven that garlic lowers the levels of cholesterol; strengthens the immune system; prevents arteriosclerosis; helps disintegrate bladder stone, kidney stone, and gallstone; purifies the blood; cuts the risk of pre-eclampsia during pregnancy; may help to boost the birth-weight of babies destined to be too small (when taken by pregnant mothers); and has strong antibiotic and antifungal properties. Garlic is very useful in the relief of bronchial coughs, asthma, head colds, as a laxative, to prevent intestinal gas, and to improve mental outlook. It may help heal cancer and prevent it. For those who love to chew garlic, I recommend following it with an apple or parsley or a slice of lemon if you respect the noses of your fellowmen.
to prepare: To prepare your own potion to help heal intestinal
gas, rheumatism, podagra, kidney stone, bladder stone, etc., take
80 g of
chopped garlic and add it to 200 g of vodka. Take
10 drops 2-3 times a day before meals.
A cure for arteriosclerosis, bronchitis, pneumonia, flu, general weakness and tiredness, or anaemia is prepared by taking 500 g of honey and adding to it 250 g chopped garlic, 250 g chopped onion, 250 g chopped horse-radish, and 250 g of cranberries. Refrigerate the mixture for three days; then take 1-2 tablespoonfuls a day with food.
personal favourite is garlic with honey. What
a powerful preventative remedy and
a good anti-aging mix! Chop
one clove of garlic and add it to a tablespoon of honey. To make it
more palatable, have a glass of juice or tea ready to wash it down with.
If you are
worried about smelling of garlic, have an apple at hand. Eating
an apple after having garlic, helps remove the unpleasant smell.
Another thing that really works is drinking water with about a
tablespoonful of apple cider vinegar mixed in. I take garlic and
honey with water and apple cider vinegar even before going out to be
with people... and I do not stink.
If you have more time, take five garlic bulbs and grate them. Add about 300-400 ml of organic extra virgin olive oil and stir with a big wooden spoon until smooth. Use it as a spread for rye bread or just take a spoonful a day. It also makes a great anti-aging facial mask. You can have a spa day and keep the mask on for hours. Your skin will feel and look great! If it starts to burn, you have too little oil in it. Add more oil to the mask or some honey.
use: Crushed garlic can be put on pimples,
smallpox, and even on wounds to prevent infection and
