Garlic (Allium sativum)

This herb should surely be top of everybody's list of Herbal remedies. It has been used for centuries as a culinary and medicinal herb and to a lot of souls is considered as a preventative cure all.

Garlic, is part of the Onion family Alliaceae  which includes shallots, and leeks and is a strong smelling, bulbous perennial native to central Asia but now cultivated all over this Earth.
The generic name is said to come from the Celtic “Al” meaning “caustic” , the common name originates from the Anglo Saxon “Gar” meaning “spear” and “leak” Leek.
Garlic has long been known for it's antiseptic and antibiotic properties and was a main ingredient in the Four Thieves' Vinegar which was taken by the robbers who plundered the bodies of plague victims. It was also reputedly a major part in the diet of the Egyptian's slave pyramid builders. Also noted was the fact that French priests working with Londiniums poorer classes during the 19th century and who ate garlic regularly remained healthy while their British brethren often died of the infectious diseases they worked amongst.

Garlic and Your Heart.

Garlic helps platelet stickiness or aggregation to help reduce blood coagulation, and promote heart health.
The antioxidant properties of garlic help scavenge harmful free radicals, which can damage LDL (bad) cholesterol in the blood stream.
Garlic also promotes increased bile production to help reduce levels of fat in the liver. Garlic pills also help ward off coughs and colds.
The positive effect of garlic on your circulatory system is extremely well documented and it has been proved to:

lower blood pressure,

decrease platelet aggregation,

lower serum triglycerides and LDL-cholesterol ( the bad type) levels,

increase serum HDL-cholesterol (the good type) and fibrinolysis (the process through which the body breaks up blood clots).

Plus it stimulates the production of nitric oxide in the lining of blood vessel walls, a substance that helps them to relax.

As a result of these beneficial actions garlic helps to prevent arteriosclerosis and thereby reduces the risk of heart attack or stroke.
Two or three cloves a day have cut the risk of subsequent heart attacks in half in heart patients.
One reason for these beneficial effects may be garlic's ability to reduce the amount of free radicals in the bloodstream. According to a study published in Life Sciences, a daily dose of 1 ml/kg body weight of garlic extract for a period of 6 months resulted in a significant reduction in oxidant (free radical) stress in the blood of arteriosclerosis patients. It's positive effect on the circulatory system improves blood flow throughout the body so has even been hailed as a cure for impotence!

Garlic and Cancer

Current research has shown that a number of readily available foods such as garlic and onions that make up a healthy diet, actually have a major impact on cancer prevention. The protective effect of garlic seems to be greater than that of onions, even though onion consumption has been shown to reduce the risk of stomach cancer. These cancer fighting foods seem to have the ability to interfere with the development of cancerous tumors.

The October 2000 issue of the American Journal of Nutrition had a summary of a number epidemiologic studies which showed that people who consumed cooked or raw garlic on a regular basis compared to those that ate little or none had about half the risk of stomach cancer and one-third less risk of colorectal cancer.

This remarkable little bulb now tops the American National Cancer Institute's list of potential cancer-preventative foods. It contains multiple anticancer compounds and antioxidants, more than 30 at the last count, which such powerful compounds as quercetin, diallyl sulphide,allin and ajoene. These have the ability to block cancer causing agents such as nitrosamine and aflatoxin which have been specifically linked to stomach, lung and liver cancer. Garlic's ajoene and allicin have also been shown to retard cancer cells as a type of natural chemotherapy.

The Iowa Women's Health Study discovered that women who included garlic in their daily diet had lower risks for colon cancer.
Meat cooked at high temperatures (well done to burnt) can produce carcinogenic (cancer producing) chemicals and research has recently discovered that when meat is cooked with garlic this effect is limited.

The ten best groups of anti-cancer foods include: berries and citrus fruits, cruciferous vegetables, garlic and onions, green tea, omega-3 fatty acids, olive oil, tomatoes, soy products, red wine and dark chocolate.

Garlic and the Immune System.

Not surprisingly the presence of all these antioxidants in garlic have a very positive effect on the immune system in general and can therefore protect the body against all types of bacterial and viral attacks. Research has recently even shown it to have an inhibiting effect on MSRA which is currently reeking such havoc in U.K. hospitals.

Garlic also acts as a good cold medication, decongestant and expectorant. It is a surprisingly good source of vitamins C, B6 and the minerals selenium and manganese all of which have long been associated with immune system boosting as well as other benefits.

Garlic-Promotes Weight Control.

Allicin is the most potent substance found in garlic and this has been shown to not only lower blood pressure, insulin and triglyceride levels in laboratory animals fed a sugar rich diet, but also to prevent weight gain.
A study published in the American Journal of Hypertension reported that animals who developed high insulin levels, high blood pressure, and high triglycerides were given either allicin or served as a control.
Although all of the animals consumed the same amount of food, weight rose only in the control group whereas the animals who were being supplemented with allicin maintained stable weight or a slight decrease was actually noticed.
The researchers concluded that allicin may be of practical value for weight control.

Garlic Home Remedies

Garlic is good for asthma, hoarseness, coughs, difficulty of breathing, and most other disorders of the lungs, being of particular virtue in chronic bronchitis, on account of its powers of promoting expectoration.
An older remedy for asthma, that was most popular, is a syrup of Garlic, made by boiling the garlic bulbs till soft and adding an equal quantity of vinegar to the water in which they have been boiled, and then sugared and boiled down to a syrup. The syrup is then poured over the boiled garlic bulbs, which have been allowed to dry meanwhile, and kept in a jar. Each morning a bulb or two should be taken, with a spoonful of the syrup.

For ear infections, wrap a small piece of garlic in some tissue, and insert it into the ear. Leave it there overnight if possible. Pain is almost immediately removed and the infection tends to start clearing up overnight.

For scratchy throats: Put a small slice of garlic in your mouth and suck on it for 10-15 minutes. You can put it between your teeth and cheek, then scratch it with your teeth a little to help stimulate juice from the garlic slice. This juice slides down your throat and removes the pain.
Garlic can heal the pain caused by insect bites like those of Mosquitos. The juice of fresh garlic mixed with salt can be applied to bruises, sprains and ringworm.

At the first sign of a cold, chop up 4 cloves of raw garlic and eat or use it as a garnish in soups etc.

Cut raw garlic and rub the cut edge on the tooth and gums a couple of times a day to stop toothache.

Take fresh garlic cloves and crush them, apply to warts until they disappear.

Crush a clove or two onto a dessert spoon then add olive oil and down the hatch. you get the benefits of raw garlic with none of the breath issues.

Garlic to clear sinuses. Melt some butter and add minced garlic cloves, spread on toast and eat.Garlic for herpes. Take a garlic clove and cut in half. Eat one half and take the other half and rub into the affected areas. (may sting a little)

Use raw garlic juice on rashes and bug bites, it stops the itching immediately.

8 to 10 of garlic juice mixed with 2 table spoons of honey four times a day cures a persistent cough.

Garlic for tonsillitis. Peel a clove of garlic and cut them in half lengthwise. Boil for a couple of minutes in about 1.5 cup water and add a pinch of salt, teaspoon of butter, a pinch of pepper and sprinkle with nutmeg.

Cut a garlic clove into small pieces. Swallow them all in one go with a little water to cure bloating, stomach cramps and constipation.

10 drops of garlic juice with 2 teaspoon of honey cures asthma.

Soaked in honey garlic cloves relieve bronchitis and coughs by expelling catarrh.

Particularly suitable for children with chesty colds, make a syrup by putting 5 fat, sliced cloves into 4 o/z of honey and marinate for several hours.  Give 2-3 teaspoons every three hours.

Fresh garlic.

It must be noted that the only effective way of taking garlic is fresh and as fresh as possible. Extended storage reduces the anti-bacterial effectiveness.
The more popular version of garlic unfortunately tends to be the "odourless" pills and capsules found in health food stores. Odourless garlic as an antibiotic or general health promotion herb is useless if it doesn't have its smell. Garlic oil and powder supplements are produced by distilling fresh garlic, and then diluting it with other substances. This process destroys the majority of allicin in garlic. Therefore, the supplements rely on the human stomach to convert some of the remaining garlic components into allicin. Although a few garlic powder supplements are able to generate some allicin within the stomach, the amount converted, if any is converted at all, is dependant upon optimal stomach conditions.
 
Garlic Breath.

One of the reasons that garlic breath is so strong is that garlic is full of sulphorous compounds. These compounds "feed" the bacteria in the mouth and bad breath (halitosis) is caused as a result.
If you have bad breath generally then you probably have a lot of these halitosis inducing bacteria in your mouth anyway and so will suffer more from the effects of garlic.

The only guaranteed way to prevent garlic breath is simply not to eat garlic! For some of us that is inconceivable. However, if your main reason for eating garlic is for the health benefits then you can try some of the suggestions below.
Unfortunately there's no way of getting rid of the symptoms of garlic eating totally. You can reduce and mask the smell of your breath, but garlic still works its way through your entire system. So even with a powerful bad breath cure the garlic will usually still emerge from your pores the next day.
That said, there are some ways that the breath problems can at least be reduced.

How to Get Rid of Garlic Breath.

Bacteria induced garlic breath can be reduced by usual oral hygiene methods. Standard halitosis remedies include regular use of mouthwash, brushing and flossing teeth and tongue scraping.

There are also commercial bad breath remedies available which are more powerful than the usual mouthwashes you can buy in supermarkets. These are available from your doctor, your pharmacist or online and not recommended.

The best methods of reducing smelly garlic breath has got to be herbal. The most obvious one is to eat parsley with the meal. This seems to counteract the problem to some extent, although it doesn't prevent it completely. It's probably no coincidence that many garlic recipes also contain parsley. However it is not enough just to sprinkle in a teaspoon of dried parsley when cooking. To get the effect you need to chew at least one sprig of fresh parsley, preferably more. Ideally this should be chopped and added near the end of cooking, or eaten fresh afterwards.

Some people also claim that chewing cardamon seeds has a similar effect to parsley and can work as a garlic breath remedy. Cardamon has a very strong flavour so this might not be an option for some people.
Other methods include chewing mint preferably spearmint, chervil or coffee beans, sprinkling yourself with angelica water?(don't know about this one) and finally according to some tv chef that I can't remember, take the green shoot out of the middle?(don't know about this one either because if the garlic is fresh there should be no sprout).

Growing your own..Please.

Garlic can easily be grown by breaking the bulb into cloves and sticking them in some dirt. Can be grown indoors in large enough pots to enable the bulb to grow and not overwatering or simply plant outside in late autumn (before the ground freezes) or early spring and harvesting when the leaves turn brown.


Good luck Grin

Peace!

My Son had a fungal nail infection and the stuff the Doctor wanted to give him for treatment had various side effects including death.   REALLY,I'm not joking!
White Rose recommended he soaked them in water with a Garlic Clove each night .
After two weeks his nails have gone white again.
Amazingly the Medication would have taken 3 months to work.

 Shocked Shocked Shocked OMG, It just goes to show. I know there are now diseases circulating around that are "not of this world" ie laboratory produced etc. But I firmly believe that all cures for all ailments are here around us growing freely, if only we knew where to look and use and blend the ingredients. It seems modern pharma only isolate an ingredient that is plant based then synthesise it and make millions on it rather than looking at the whole picture where if the entire plant was used where this ingredient is found, with care there would be only mild, subtle side effects that would usually be beneficial somehow anyway.

We as a species have been removed from our lands and removed from our knowledge and traditions, my hope is that I'm correct in thinking that we are slowly clawing it back piece by piece, day by day Smiley

Heal thyself,

Peace!
