The more I study natural health the more anti-bacterial, anti-virus and anti-fungal things I find in nature. Along with garlic there is Coconut Oil and my favorite Lightning Colloidal Silver.
Too often when people are sick, they just don't know what to do. More and more people are starting to distrust doctors and their drugs, but in a time of illness or infection they're unsure where to turn. Unfortunately, this uncertainty leads many people to doctors' offices for drugs that ultimately do more harm than good. So, here's some simple advice: if you need something that functions like an antibiotic, turn to garlic instead. Garlic is a powerful, natural antibiotic - and it doesn't kill off our healthy bacteria like drug antibiotics do. Unlike chemical antibiotics, garlic is also an effective antiviral and antifungal - and taking just a few cloves of garlic each day can really speed infections away.
In one small trial, seven AIDS patients all had normal T-cell activity after three months of taking the equivalent of two or four garlic cloves each day - and T-cell activity is a key indicator of the AIDS infection. While AIDS may not be your infliction, as one of the most dreaded conditions around, it's helpful to use it to demonstrate the powerful effects of garlic. The patients also showed improvement with other problems like chronic diarrhea, candida overgrowth, genital herpes and a chronic sinus infection. Garlic has also been found to be helpful for conditions including diabetes, high blood pressure, allergies, infections, toothaches, cancer, impotence, colds, heart disease, MRSA, and high cholesterol. And a one month supply is a few bucks at your local organic market.
The fact that garlic is able to help with so many seemingly unrelated problems also demonstrates how connected different diseases are. The medical establishment likes to isolate diseases and target each with different drugs - just because they produce different symptoms and occur in different areas of the body. But the root causes of diseases that can appear very different are often the same. It's all far more intertwined than you might think.
For garlic to be effective as a healing agent and general antibiotic, it needs to be raw. It should also be crushed and exposed to air for ten minutes before it's consumed to fully activate its key germ-killing compound. And don't worry; raw garlic doesn't have to taste awful. A simple recipe is to juice four cloves of garlic, two tomatoes, and a lemon to make a delicious antibacterial and antiviral drink. If you don't have a juicer, simply toss the ingredients into a blender and make a tomato and garlic soup. To either, just add some sea salt; it'll be delicious. If you have an infection, you can enjoy several of these drinks or soups each day to battle it away without the use of chemical antibiotics that are known to destroy our protective healthy bacteria - often in one fell swoop.
