As an unemployed college educated young woman in America with no healthcare, when I came down with a throat infection, my options were limited. I didn’t have insurance, I couldn’t really afford a trip to the hospital and the hoards of vitamin C I was taking didn’t seem to be clearing it up.
I started doing research online on how I might be able to treat a bacterial infection without medication, and I came upon something fabulous… GARLIC.
Garlic has been used as far back as the pyramid building Egyptian times for medicinal purposes, it is mentioned in the bible, was used by Greek and Roman soldiers and American Indians used it for sore throats and coughing. Garlic contains an organic compound called allicin. Allicin has been proven in the labratory to have anti-bacterial and antifungal properties.
During my sickness, I double, triple even quadrupled my intake of garlic. I even chewed (and swallowed) raw garlic. I smelled like garlic and my mouth tasted like garlic. If you chop or crush the garlic before you put it in your mouth, some of what you need to fight free radicals is lost, so it is best to chew directly on a clove (if you can stand it). In the end it was worth it. After about a week of this garlic regimin, my sore throat was gone. Literally gone. I had healed myself with the garlic! No doctor visit, no medicines, nothing. Just garlic and rest.
Turns out that garlic is a good wide spectrum bacterial killer. It can help with the common cold, small bacterial infections, fighting free radicals and overall bettering your health. If you are looking to use garlic as an everyday supplement, you can buy them at www.4allvitamins.com for only $5 for 100 pills.
