MANY WAYS TO BENEFIT FROM THE HEALING POWER OF GARLIC

Hailed as the oldest cultivated plant in the world, garlic’s amazing health and healing qualities have been legendary for longer than the written word. Garlic is a natural remedy that has been handed down for centuries. In fact, the Chinese have been using garlic for medicinal purposes for more than three thousand years.
This ancient remedy has been used to combat anaemia, improve liver function, lower blood pressure, prevent constipation and facilitate blood flow. Due to garlic’s high sulphur content, it has also been used to combat fungi, and to inhibit salmonella poison and bites by mosquitoes, bees and scorpions. There has been so much research done on the health benefits of garlic that it would take volumes to explain it all. Although hundreds of studies have documented the health benefits of garlic, our great grand parents didn’t need studies–they relied upon from folk remedies and wisdom passed down for generations–and from their own experiences.
We know that garlic is good for us, so let’s explore more of the powerful health and healing benefits garlic has to offer.


MORE HEALING BENEFITS OF GARLIC
RELIEVES EAR INFECTIONS OR ACHES
The use of garlic oil for ear infections or ear aches is an important natural remedy handed down
for generations. One recent study showed that 14 strains of bacteria (taken from the noses and throats of children who had ear infections) were killed when treated with garlic. Try and get more fresh garlic into your children’s diets—it may help eliminate these infections altogether.

REDUCES RHEUMATISM PAIN AND INFLAMMATION
Prepare a paste from a few cloves of garlic and rub it on the affected area. Garlic’s anti-inflammatory action reduces pain in sore and swollen joints.

HELPS KEEP BLOOD FROM CLOTTING
Here’s another good reason to eat fresh garlic daily. Platelets that clump together cause all kinds of troubles including arteriosclerosis, stroke and heart attack. Garlic contains a compound called diallyl disulfide that helps keep blood from clotting. Ingesting fresh garlic has been proven to stop platelets from sticking together thereby allowing your blood to circulate properly.

HELPS TO PREVENT HAIR LOSS
Prevent hair loss by rubbing your scalp with this garlic remedy:
1 teaspoon of Garlic Juice
8 oz. of Rosemary Tea
1 tbspn Honey
1 tbspn Lemon Juice
Mix the ingredients together in a cup.
Rub this mixture into your scalp nightly.

HELPS TO LOWER CHOLESTEROL
Here’s another good reason to eat fresh garlic daily.  The liver makes cholesterol, so we don’t need to eat any extra in our foods. Unfortunately, cholesterol is everywhere. Help lower your cholesterol by making better food choices and by eating one-half to one clove of fresh garlic every day. Studies showed that eating this amount of garlic on a daily basis lowered cholesterol
about 9 percent.

HELPS TO LOWER CANCER RISK
There are many things you can do to help lower your risk of getting certain types of
cancers, naturally. And garlic consumption is one of them.
Increased intake of garlic and reduced risk of certain cancers, including cancers
of the stomach, colon, esophagus, pancreas, and breast.
… An analysis of data from seven population studies showed that the higher the amount of raw and cooked garlic consumed, the lower the risk of stomach and colorectal cancer. Protective effects from garlic may arise from its antibacterial properties or from its ability to block the formation of cancer-causing substances,
halt the activation of cancer-causing substances, enhance DNA repair, reduce cell proliferation, or induce cell death.”

HELPS TO LOWER BLOOD PRESSURE
To help lower blood pressure, make a syrup with the following ingredients:
2 cloves peeled Garlic
2 tbspns Sugar
1/4 cup filtered or Spring Water
Crush and mash the garlic
Mix the garlic with sugar and a glass of water.
Drink 2 tablespoons daily.

COUGH OR CHEST COLD REMEDY
Garlic can be used to fight coughs, chest colds and bacterial infections.
Crush a few garlic cloves, put them in a jar or bowl, and cover them in olive oil.
Rub the oil on your feet. (Adults can put garlic pieces between your toes.)
Then put on socks and go to sleep. The garlic enters your system and heads to the lungs.
It enhances your immune system and fights viruses. You can also spread garlic directly on your chest and back to soften the cough and relieve airways.

A NATURAL BACTERIA FIGHTER
Garlic has been referred to as ‘a natural bacteria fighter’. Apparently, some strains of bacteria that become resistant to antibiotics are killed off when garlic is used. For example, the fungus that causes swimmer’s ear has been treated successfully when a mixture of garlic and water was used. Of course, it is best not to mess with the inside of your ears yourself. Go to a qualified natural doctor if you want to try this treatment.

REMOVES WARTS AND ACNE SPOTS
Did you know that you can apply the garlic directly onto the skin to clear spots caused by
acne and to remove warts?

MAKE GARLIC A REGULAR PART OF YOUR DIET
Garlic is so easy to get and even easier to use. There is no excuse for not including fresh garlic in your diet. Eating healthful meals with antiviral and antibiotic properties built into them is optimal so eating garlic regularly is extremely healthful. No wonder garlic is an integral ingredient in Italian, Asian and Middle Eastern cuisine, as well as many others. Garlic is an excellent source of vitamin B6, and a good source of selenium, manganese, and vitamin C. It provides calcium, phosphorous, iron, copper and potassium. Surprisingly, 149 calories of garlic contains a 6.4 grams of protein. Although, cooking with garlic is good for your health, when you need it in an acute situation, ingest it raw. Garlic is much more beneficial when consumed raw because cooking it diminishes some of its healing properties.
