“Poor Man’s Medicine”

The benefits of garlic never cease to amaze. Also called “stinkweed”, garlic is an important lung aid that facilitates cleansing and healing. Garlic is known to have amazing healing powers and be beneficial, not just for the lungs, but for the overall body. Garlic contains calcium, potassium, some protein, phosphorus, vitamins C and B and acts as a stimulant, diuretic, antiseptic, disinfectant and as a germicide and vermicide (kills germs and worms). During World War I in England, garlic soaked bandages were applied to wounds to prevent infection and promote healing. Garlic used regularly in the diet can help prevent colds, flu and other infections. Try consuming a couple of cloves a day, pressed into water or juice or as garlic capsules, taking two, twice a day. If you are concerned about odor, try chewing parsley.

The medicinal properties of garlic are in its essential oil. It is simple to extract this oil, which can be used for various purposes such as rubbing on a congested chest or even the soles of your feet to prevent or remedy colds.
