Ok, you saw some of my previous posts on Natural Remedies and one thing I noticed was that garlic is extremely beneficial. I went over my notes and did some more research and here’s what I found.
Garlic has powerful antibiotic, antiviral, and antimicrobial properties. Eating a couple cloves of garlic a day strengthens your immune system, yes it’s smell but a powerful virus/infection fighter.
Eating raw garlic daily can take care of all of the following, some may be paired with echinecea extract to increase the immune system.
• High Cholesterol
Garlic not only decreases levels of harmful low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol, but it also increases levels of beneficial, heart-protective high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol. Just one clove of garlic daily is usually enough to help regulate cholesterol levels-but the more you can eat, the better.
• High Pressure
Celery is thought to help relax the smooth muscles of the artery walls. Garlic and onions also help relax the blood vessels. Eat four stalks of celery and at least one clove of garlic or half an onion every day.
• Sore Throats, Colds, Flu, & Fever
At the first inkling of a sore throat, eat two cloves of raw garlic daily to fight the virus. May be chopped finely and added to soups just before serving.
A poultice of crushed raw garlic has powerful antiviral properties and can get rid of a wart in a few days. Because the essential oils in raw garlic can burn your skin, it’s important to protect the skin around the wart with a layer of vitamin E oil; prick a vitamin E capsule with a pin and spread the oil on to your skin. Mash a clove of garlic, apply to the wart, and cover with an adhesive bandage. Remove the bandage after 24 hours. A blister usually forms, and the wart should fall off within one week.
• Ear infections (garlic oil)
Garlic oil ear drops can be made by mincing one large bulb of fresh garlic and placing it in a heavy pot with enough olive oil to cover it by one inch (25mm). Cover the pot, warm gently over low heat for one hour. Cool, strain the oil through several layers of cheesecloth, and refrigerate in a covered glass jar. To use the oil, warm a small amount in a metal spoon over a candle flame to a comfortable temperature (test the warmth of the oil on the back of your hand). Suction the oil in an ear dropper; place two drops into the ear canal, plug with a cotton ball. Repeat the treatment every hour as needed, until symptoms subside.
Caution: Do not use garlic oil to treat swimmer’s ear (an inflammation of the external ear canal), or if you suspect a punctured eardrum.
