Relocate Your Medicine Cabinet: To Your Kitchen! (Part 3)
I have found a new addiction: garlic. I’m sure it sounds slightly less than enticing. However, once I discovered the benefits of raw garlic, I made it a part of daily routine—and I love it. What’s more important is the vast number of uses for garlic. It’s a little miracle-worker!
I mentioned before in the first part of this series that garlic is has natural anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-viral properties. That means that taking raw garlic at the onset of a cold or flu will help fight off the infection in your body so that you are not sick as long…or perhaps even avoid getting sick altogether! I’ve done this and I am a believer! The last time everyone in my family was sick, I took a lot of garlic (and apple cider vinegar) and somehow warded off what everyone else had.
It’s not so much vampires as it is mosquitoes that are repelled by garlic. Eating it is supposed to suffice. However, some suggest putting garlic extract on exposed skin when you know you’ll be around mosquitoes and you’ll have no trouble at all with those yucky critters.
I haven’t tried this one yet. However, garlic can be used to make a cough syrup to relieve coughing and a sore throat. Boil a quarter pound of garlic in one cup of water to make the syrup. Adding honey helps both medicinally and taste!
There are so many more uses for garlic. It really is like a little wonder drug. What do you use it for?
