People have consumed garlic on a daily basis for centuries because they have experienced better health!
The garlic is good, but somehow it doesn’t sound like it would make a nice breakfast, right? In fact, it doesn’t sound good for your lunch or dinner, either. But when you find out its benefits, the “wind of changes” will eventually hit you.If you mind the smell of raw garlic, then stop.
There are many smell-killers today, so don’t mind! You will wipe that killing breath away with mint bonbons or a chewing gum for instance. When you cook garlic, especially with some added fatty oil, it loses much of its potential. So, opt for cooking it with a little bit of organic oil.
At the moment, there are many different feelings on the subject of eating garlic on an empty stomach. You can often hear people say that it is a grocer’s recommendation that has very little effect. Yet, it really is very effective for preventing and curing diseases.
So, why is it good to eat garlic on an empty stomach?
In many societies, the garlic was referred to as “The King of Spices,” because of the numerous health benefits it brings about. It helps normalize your gut flora, strengthen your immune system “fighters” to fight off bacterial infections. Humans began cultivating garlic some 5,000 years ago and its cultivation is still going strong today!
Have you ever heard what garlic does on an empty stomach? It’s actually quite imposing. Eating a head of garlic (normally baked garlic, never raw unless you are a superhero) in the morning, right before breakfast time, has numerous benefits.
This is a summary of the most important ones:
1. You are less likely to get topical infections
Many people apply garlic to their skin to treat fungal infections and warts. Only a small amount of garlic can help fight warts: they will fall off painlessly. Some people use it to fight tooth pain by placing a little bit on the tooth that hurts. Some evidence also suggests that the topical use of garlic is effective against infections such as ring worm and athlete’s foot.
Use the garlic for external applications, like a poultice over your abdomen to relieve some colds as well. It is also possible to apply it to the stings and bites from poisonous animals.
2. Your blood pressure stabilizes
Many people who suffer from hypertension have found the garlic to be a relief to this disease’s symptoms.
A study implies that several cloves of garlic can significantly reduce hypertension: “Garlic significantly reduces mean supine systolic BP by 12 mmHg (95% CI 0.56 to 23.44 mmHg, p=0.04) and mean supine diastolic BP by 9 mmHg (95% CI 2.49 to 15.51 mmHg, p=0.007) versus placebo.” The authors state that the garlic was “free from side effects” and that no serious side effects were reported.
3. Your inflammation and respiratory problems are reduced
The garlic is a great healer for if you have acute or chronic respiratory problems. Some women stated that it help them treat and prevent pneumonia, chronic bronchial catarrhs, chronic bronchitis, lung congestion, whooping cough, and more. You will be less likely to catch a cold or the flu too, which is especially important during pregnancy.
Indeed, in a couple of studies, the garlic has been found to work similarly to NSAID pain relievers (ibuprofen)… shutting down the pathways that cause inflammation that is bronchial diseases.
Make this special infusion for treating any type of bronchial diseases:
Bronchial Treatment Recipe
• 200 grams of garlic.
• 700 grams of refined sugar, (instead of sugar, you can use raw honey) and
• 1,000 grams ( 1 liter) of purified water
Boil the water with the garlic and add the refined sugar.
Use: Take 3 tablespoons of this infusion every day.
For curing chronic bronchitis, you can also prepare a homemade mixture. Here it is:
Chronic Bronchitis Treatment Extract
• 40 grams of well-washed garlic cut into small pieces
• 100 grams of 90% proof alcohol, , and
• a glass bottle (that has a good cap!)
Combine the 2 ingredients in the bottle and let the blend soak for 5-6 days, and then strain it.
When prepared in this way, the infusion also keeps for a long time.
Use: Drink a cup of it every day.
Asthma And Catarrhs Treatment Recipe
For asthma attacks and chronic bronchial catarrhs, you can use the same mixture as the one above. Just add 15-30 drops of it in a little bit of hot water.
If you find the smell and taste of garlic very strong, then add several drops of mint extract (although this will slightly change the curative power of garlic).Drink it and enjoy the benefits!
Consuming an entire garlic “bulb” everyday treats the symptoms of tuberculosis as well. Divide it in various portions that can be consumed in any way. Its medicinal properties are best felt when you consume it raw or slightly browned in the oven. You can also make a sauce with egg yolk and oil. In this case, you have to avoid boiling the liquid because you will lose a lot of the medicinal properties of the garlic.
