Considered by many herbalists to be one of the greatest herbs on the
planet. Used by Alexander the Great when he conquered the civilized
world. Garlic gave his troops endurance and immunity from disease.
Used by those who knew of its power to avoid catching the plague
that ravaged Europe in the middle ages. The British in WW1 used
garlic when they ran out of sulfa drugs (garlic is thought to
contain over 75 sulfur compounds). When the British mixed
chopped garlic with moss, applied it to wounds, and burns the
infection rate among their troops dropped 50%.
Louis Pasteur confirmed the antibacterial action of garlic in 1858
and Albert Schweitzer used it successfully against amoebic colitis.
Called the ginseng of the west,
garlic is known to stir sexual
appetite. For this reason many religions ban its use among monks
For the immune system, garlic
stimulates the lymphatic system to throw off waste materials.
Garlic helps to control fevers and works to combat viruses such as
influenza viruses. Garlic has the ability to destroy harmful
bacteria while at the same time leave beneficial bacteria for the
For the heart, garlic improves
circulation by an anti-coagulant factor that normalizes blood
platelet adhesion. Garlic strengthens blood vessels there-by
strengthening the heart. Research in the 1970's revealed that oils
extracted from garlic inhibited blood clotting. No
standard medication can match Garlic on the cardiovascular scale.
Garlic DEFINITELY reduces blood pressure, cholesterol and reduces
internal clots, which can lead to heart attacks and strokes. Garlic
reduces blood sugar and therefore helps diabetes sufferers. It may
help eliminate lead and heavy metals in the blood
stream, has helped
leprosy patients, fights cancer, and helps aids patients
Garlic is an expectorant helping rid
the lungs of phlegm; thus treating respiratory conditions such as
asthma, emphysema bronchial and lung problems. Garlic protects
against cancer-causing agents found in cigarette smoke.
'The pancreas loves garlic' is a
phrase one of my teachers Dr. Richard Shultze
used many times he also
said that garlic is powerful for anyone with diabetes. Garlic was
proven in university studies to reduce blood sugar level and at the
same time increase insulin production.
Parasites and Funguses:
Garlic has the ability to rid the
colon of parasites and expel threadworms from the body. The
allicin in garlic is active against Candida Albicans more effective
than Nystatin. Parasitic funguses associated with AIDS, are
inhibited by Garlic.
Evidence is mounting that of the many
compounds found in garlic at least 10 are active in reversing cancer
development. Professor Michael Wargovich at the University of Texas
where his group studied the effects of two major purified components
of garlic - dialylsulphide which is soluble in oil and S-allyl
cysteine which is water soluble. He tested these compounds on two
animal carcinoma models and found that the tumors could be reduced
by between 50 and 75% Then in his controls (used to remove any
experimental bias) he gave a prophylactic dose of garlic and then
deliberately tried to induce a particularly virulent form of
esophageal cancer. He found that garlic completely prevented his
experimental controls from becoming infected. The Akbar Clinic and
Research Institute in Panama City, FL, has produced dramatic
evidence that garlic revs up the body's natural immune system. They
extracted key immune system components such as white blood cells and
killer cells from garlic eating volunteers. They were mixed in a
lab dish with cancer cells. The result was astonishing, killer cells
from the garlic eaters destroyed from 140 percent to 160 percent
more cancer cells than did blood from the nongarlic eaters.
personal experience using garlic to treat prostate
told that if I wanted to beat the cancer that I would
need to eat raw fresh garlic daily as part of my routine
until the cancer was gone. The instructions were, that
I start with a few cloves of pressed garlic a couple of
times a day the first week. The second week, double the
amount of pressed garlic each day. And so on until I
reached a total of at least 30 cloves of pressed garlic
each day. It was suggested that from that point on I
ingest at least 30 cloves of pressed garlic every day
until the cancer was completely gone. It was also
suggested that I could ingest more if I felt comfortable
with it. I was told that a woman with breast cancer was
ingesting some times as many as 40 cloves of garlic a
followed those instructions to the letter reaching at
least 30 cloves of garlic every day. Many days I ate 40
cloves of pressed garlic. Three months later my
symptoms were gone but I did not stop eating the
garlic. I continued eating the garlic every day for
more than a year. Until one day I passed a large amount
of cancerous material into the toilet during a bowel
movement. About 3 weeks later I stopped eating the 30
plus cloves of garlic.
did I ingest this much raw garlic every day? I ate the
garlic at different times during the day so I was not
eating too many cloves at one time. I ate some in the
morning, some in the afternoon, and some in the late
afternoon or early evening.
did I manage to eat a number of cloves at one time
without burning my mouth and throat? I was given a
couple of ways of getting it down. One is to take a
clove of garlic and slice it thinly with a razor like a
small loaf of bread with out cutting all the way through
the clove. That way I could swallow the clove like it
was a pill. The second way was to take some nut butter
like peanut butter and scoop out a large amount with a
spoon. Then take a wet knife so the peanut butter will
not stick to it and carve a pocket into the peanut
butter. Then run the garlic through a garlic press and
put it into the peanut butter pocket. When the pocket
was filled I used the wet knife to seal in the garlic.
I then took the spoon full of peanut butter and
swallowed it, washing it down with some water or juice.
The peanut butter technique was my preferred way of
eating the garlic.
does the garlic need to be cut or pressed? Cutting or
pressing the clove is what releases the healing power of
could I not just take a lot of garlic pills or
capsules? Garlic supplements are great if you are not
really sick. But when you have cancer you need the real
thing, raw garlic.
may not always feel good when you eat garlic, I
sometimes did not feel so good. But remember this is
cancer and you are doing something that cancer does not
like. Read the paper on 'Healing Crisis' in the Article
section of this site to understand why you might feel
bad when you are doing good things for your body.
Fighting cancer as I did naturally takes a lot of work.
Garlic was just one of the tools that I used to increase
the strength of my immune system and cleanse my blood.
