Not only does garlic’s strong biting taste and aroma clear your breathing, but garlic also has anti-bacterial, anti-fungal properties too! NOTE: Plan on spending the day alone because you will wreak of garlic, which can be quite offensive to those around you. At night, ask you partner to share a bite of your garlic infused dish so they won’t be able to smell you as you lay next to them in bed.
The best way to eat RAW garlic is by mixing it into something where you might expect a strong taste. My personal favorite is to mix a minced clove of garlic into a serving of any store bought salsa. Salsa is known for being hot, so it’s a natural fit. Also mixing RAW garlic into a mashed avocado or prepared guacamole. You can then eat the garlic laced guacamole or salsa as usual, with chips, on nachos or scrambled eggs. Doing so makes eating the RAW garlic less like a remedy and more like a treat.
She talks about eating 4-5 cloves a day, swallowing a small clump of it as though she’s taking a pill. Personally, that seems a little too utilitarian for me. I’d prefer to make it a pleasurable experience, eating it as I suggested above, in guacamole, salsa, or sprinkling it into some warmed chicken soup (not hot, heating it kills the benefits of the garlic.) Also I don’t consume it daily because I’m pretty sure the stench of the garlic seeping from my pours would cause great distress to those around me. Instead, I only eat raw garlic when I begin feeling run down, my glands are swollen, and usually in the evening so it can work it’s magic while I sleep.
Give RAW garlic a try, either by washing it down whole as she did, or mixing into another food as I suggested. Let me know if it works for you.
