garlic

Antibiotic, antifungal, antiparasitic, anti-worm, antiviral, anti-yeast infection fighter for wounds. Contains almost 80 sulphur compounds, and is more effective than antibiotics in many cases, but unlike antibiotics, garlic does not kill friendly intestinal flora. It’s one of the strongest herbal healers known. Helps destroy cancer, break up tumors, thin the blood and normalize/lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels. Chelates heavy metals. Used for sinus infections, bronchitis, rheumatism, dysentery, H.Pylori, and antibiotic resistant strains of pathogens. Apply garlic juice to ringworm and use as insect repellent. An excellent immune booster that even benefits eye infections like conjucnctivitis, sties, other eye problems. For longevity and powerful health, it’s recommended to consume 2 cloves of garlic a day. Swallowing whole cloves won’t do much though. To activate the healing power, garlic cells need to be broken open (crushed, diced, sliced, ground etc) Plant has edible garlic bulbs on top of stem and cloves underground. Leaves look like thick grass. Important- Make sure the plant SMELLS like garlic! There is a poisonous plant that looks like a garlic bulb but doesn’t have any smell.
