To Garlic Bob Anderson,

I'm not confused anymore with the Raw Garlic -vs- Kyolic.
You are so right with everything! :-) Thank you so much for sharing the right way to use & eat Garlic. It's very simple.....eat what mother earth has gave us. I am now back on my raw, non-irradiated garlic, also using it for my "healed infected sight" Truth be known that two of my boils, the scare has faded, and the small lump is half gone. (my infection happened in August 2011 and I thought it was all healed up) Right now I've been feeling great. I truly believe the raw, non-irradiated garlic has helped me by purifying my blood and liver, natures way, and I'm responding well to it. God Bless you Garlic Bob for your info. on garlic. My Grandmother swore by eating garlic everyday....she lived to be 90. :-D

This may be a dumb question..... But does the garlic have to be crushed, or can it
also be blended in a food processor?

Pacco -

It can be blended in a food processor and may even create more allicin that way - might not be a bad idea to use only a few cloves and add some water for volume.

Just be sure to use garlic that has not been irradiated as that is the only kind that can create allicin. Irradiated garlic cannot produce allicin.

Hope this helps.

Good luck to you.

I was so sick for one year ...I felt dizzy, shortness of breath and I kept hearing this whirling sound in my ears, I finally insisted that my ENT doctor do a nasal smear the doctor laughed and said most nasal smears come back negative. The results were I had ecoli and fungus infection. All the stuff the doctor gave made me feel sicker The only two things that helped cure my Ecoli and Fungus sinus infection was steam inhalation with Thyme oil and chewing little pieces of garlic all day...I work from home my cat Fluff is cool with the garlic . I started to feel so much better in one day. I continued this for several days, the results were amazinhg. I would make sure to place the garlic in between my back tooth so it not my tongue or gums to avoid that burning feeling.

Allibiotic CF contains 40 mg pure garlic or allicin properties. I read you need at least 180 mg daily for it to be beneficial. any thoughts?

AlliBiotic CF™
Allicin + herbal immune enhancers + prebiotic.
Herbal immune enhancers can address the production and activity of various immune cells, as well as target specific aspects of illness prevention and symptom severity.

As immuno stimulants, the herbs in AlliBiotic CF™ support the immune system and help rid the body rid itself of illness and infection.

Herbal Immune Enhancers: Herbal Immune enhancers potentiate the body's own defense mechanisms rather than substitute for them. They do this in a number of ways:

-Act as natural antibiotics to fight infection
-Stimulate optimal immune functioning to fight against disease
-Prevent illness and premature degeneration of body cells
-Support convalescence and boost energy when feeling run-down and listless
-Allibiotic CF™ Herbal Immune Enhancers: Allibiotic CF™ is scientifically designed to help support healthy seasonal and year-round immune function.

LIKELY USERS: People seeking support of the immune system and intestinal flora

KEY INGREDIENTS: Allicin, Olive Leaf Extract (Olea Europaea with 18% minimum Oleuropein content); Elderberry extract, from fruit/berry, 60:1 concentrate (equivalent to 2,500 mg. of fresh berries of Sambucus nigra); Oil of Oregano (wild oregano from Origanum vulgare) ImmunEnhancer AG (trademarked Arabinogalactan from Larch Tree, Larix occidentalis)

MAIN PRODUCT FEATURES: Stable form of allicin. Not allicin potential, but actual allicin. Allicin represents the immune supporting nutrients of raw garlic, and is chemically similar to penicillin, though with different physical properties. Allibiotic CF shares garlic’s abilities to help maintain healthy cholesterol and blood pressure levels, and also has been shown to raise levels of a key T cell to enhance immune system function. Like raw garlic, Allibiotic CF has antimicrobial properties linked to its ability to react with sulfur-containing metabolic enzymes. Allicin is also shown in studies to play a role in controlling blood sugar and abnormal cell growth.

Black Elderberries have strong antioxidant properties, containing flavonoids like anthocyanidins. They have been studied in relation to inhibition of viral replication and of minor inflammations.

Olive Leaf has been used as an antioxidant, cholesterol and blood viscosity regulator, and vasodilator. But its most important use has been as a way to help the body deal with undesirable organisms in the vital respiratory and intestinal areas.

Oil of Oregano (wild oregano, wild marjoram) contains carvacrol and thymol, which are responsible for much of its antimicrobial activities. It also has some anti-inflammatory effects.

Arabinogalactan from Larch tree bark (ImmunEnhancer AG) can help speed the immune system’s response to undesirable organisms and is often compared to Echinacea. It has also been shown to promote the growth of beneficial intestinal bacteria.

ADDITIONAL PRODUCT INFORMATION: Patented and trademarked ingredients enhance quality controls and have clinical research. Rosemary Oil provides antioxidant protection for the capsule contents. Enteric coating protects the capsule from stomach acid to deliver its contents past the stomach. This helps to assure full potency and reduces the possibility of the oils repeating.

COMPLEMENTARY PRODUCTS: Probiotics, Antioxidants, D-Flame.



*SERVING SIZE & HOW TO TAKE IT: One softgel twice daily, preferably with meals. Try one before using the full dose.



Personally I've taken Allibiotic CF for six years, and believe it was this that turned my MRSA spiral around and saved my life. I started with one a day, built up to two a day, and when my condition was at most serious stage... I took two in am and two in pm. *I am not recommending taking this beyond listed dose, just saying what I did. Additionally, I have stopped at various times (never longer than a month) in hope of forcing immune system to work as it is biologically preprogrammed to do.

Hope this helps you.

hi i wanted to know if there is a difference between "garlic"
supplements and "allicin". I believe I read that garlic supplements
don't provide allicin; i tryed to search for allicin supplement online
and many bottles say allicin xxxx amount/MG garlic is that not pure
allicin?
Is there a pure allicin supplement that can have the same effect?

Yes, there are differences between garlic and allicin and there are also differences between the amount of allicin claimed on the label and the amount actually detected in a test that was done in the mid-to-late 90s. Larry D. Lawson, PhD, studied 28 garlic pills to see whether they developed the amount of allicin advertised or not.

In the published study, brand names were omitted to protect against lawsuit.

Half (14) of the brands produced less than half the amount claimed while 8 of those 14 (29%) had less than 1% of the amount claimed. Another eight (29%) had 95% or more of the amount claimed. Almost half (13) had 25% or less of the amount of allicin claimed.

This is the reason I take the word of garlic pill manufacturers with a grain of salt. They all denigrate their competitors and loudly promote their own products, regardless of quality.

In reality, an average of about 40% in a range of 3% to 50% of the clove's mass is converted from alliin into allicin, depending on variety, time since harvest and other factors. Allicin is the active ingredient in garlic. In short, when garlic is crushed, less than half its weight becomes allicin and the rest becomes other compounds that are not a factor in garlic's antimicrobial; activity.

According to this study, there is no such thing as a pure allicin supplement. Stabilized allicin is just a hyperbolic buzzword for garlic powder.

Personally, I prefer real garlic to any manufactured supplement because I know the name of the variety and how long it has been since harvest (The more time which passes since harvest, the more potent a garlic is.) - things one cannot know about any garlic pill.

In many cases the word allicin has become more of a buzzword than a fact.

Finally, the most important fact, pills are made to be swallowed and that is a less effective way to use garlic than garlic water baths with garlics of known variety. In the case of many pills, they would be more effective if added to a garlic water bath than if consumed because of the changes imposed by the digestive system on consumed garlic and the efficacy of transdermal applications of the natural allicin in garlic.

Hope this helps.

I have had MRSA for a while, usually get the small pimple looking breakout, and treat them as a pimple, hurts like heck, but they go away until the stress of my job gets the better of me. But once in a while I get the nasty abcess breakout usually on my left index finger.
Friday 2/7/2014 got that itchy feeling on my finger, sure enough by nightfall there it was,started reading this thread and decided what heck I will try some of these remedies and if I do not see any noticable results will go to my local quack. Well last night find store in my area with the correct garlic they also sell manuka honey great two for one. Get home crushed a whole garlic and placed the pulp on my finger expecting to scream from pain, no pain. Read some of this article and found that I did not let pulp sit long enough, waited, tried again no pain, at this point placed the whole container of pulp into about half a gallon of warm to hot water roughly about 110 degrees and plunged my whole hand into this and waited for an hour no pain. Cleaned up the garlic mess, washed my hands with hibiclens, dried with new sterile guaze. Then looked at the honey, put a dab on the blister and covered with fresh bandage and went to bed, looked at blister this morning and noticed that swelling went down a little and seem to gather into one lump no red streaking.
Washed hand with hibiclens, dried with sterile guaze, dabbed a little honey on it and covered with fresh bandage. In the whole time of the above mentioned narrative there was no noticable head of infection as this abcess seemed to be sitting on my bone, well along about 4:30pm PST curiosity got the best of me so I peeled back the bandage and to my surprise I now have a very nasty looking pus head. I had made an appointment with my local quack earlier today as MRSA is nothing to play with. When I get home I will be crushing another whole clove and trying the garlic again waiting for the burn that per the article means the this infection is doom for the pearly gates, will also use the honey as they are very proud of Manuka Active 16+. Hoping to see no infection in the morning, still keeping quack appointment hoping to rub natural cure in his nose, because I am pretty sure that another round of bactrim was in my near future.
Will follow up with results.
Thank You.

The fact that your garlic did not burn when applied directly to your lesion implies that you did not get non-irradiated garlic. There are a couple of ways you can tell if the garlic was irradiated. remove a clove from a buln and tear it apart and you should find a little growing shoot in the center of the clove, growing up through an otherwise empty sheath. If the garlic looks otherwise fresh but just doesn't have a little sprout inside, then the garlic has been irradiated.

Every natural garlic has a sprout in the heart of every clove because that is how the garlic propagates itself. Radiation kills this sprout and it also kills the enzyme, alliinase, that causes allicin to form and so irradiated garlic never forms any allicin. It tastes like garlic but does not burn the tongue when tasted raw like natural garlic does.

Chinese distributors routinly irradiate their garlic to prevent it from sprouting and that's why there are no growing tips in irradiated garlic - it is dead. Normal garlic is a living thing that slowly changes by growing and developing cloves and then the cloves wait for the right conditions to start growing trying to produce cloves of its own. Irradiated garlic is simply the dead body of what was once a living thing that could produce allicin upon crushing but not anymore.

Some natural garlics are naturally very mild to the point of being bland like Applegarte or Rouge River Red or Simoneti but those are almost never sold through stores as they are rare and expensive ($16 to $24 per pound)

If you will check your garlics , I'm pretty sure you will not find any growing tips inside the cloves.

If you can't find natural garlic, a very good substitute is garlic powder; not garlic salt but pure garlic powder in the spices section of stores. If you touch a few grains to the tongue and it is hot, then it will work because it will still produce allicin upon re-hydration.

Now that I have said all that, I do not recommend putting crushed raw garlic (crg) directly on the skin without diluting it in water first because it can result in severe second degree burns. Burns do not occur when crg is diluted in water. Frequent repetition in garlic water is what will drive MRSA away.

Read as many of the garlic water posts as you can. You'll be surprised what you learn.

Hope this helps.

The compound in garlic most responsible for killing staph is diallyl thiosulfinate or allicin as it is popularly called, a volatile compound with a half-life of about 16 hours in air that forms when garlic is crushed. By letting the crushed garlic set for fifteen to thirty minutes and adding it to water, every part of that water becomes antimicrobial even when diluted to well over 100,000 parts of water to one part of allicin.

Since Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is a bacterial infection of the colon, crushed raw garlic (CRG) can be used in an enema to kill the bacteria and probiotics used to restore friendly bowel bacteria so recovery can be prompt. A good size clove of non-irradiated garlic can be crushed and let steep in air for a few minutes before adding to warm water and swirling it around well enough to thoroughly mix it and then strain out the particles and pour into a hot water bottle and add enough warm water to fill the bottle and shake. Using an enema tip, one lies on the back in the bathtub with pelvis elevated to easily drain contents of bottle into rectum. Sitting on a toilet to do it means fighting gravity but gravity is helpful when administrating the enema while lying on one’s back. Roll from side to side for a few minutes to make sure that every part of the colon is in contact with the garlic water, including the front. The water is relatively easy to retain when one is lying down. After a few minutes, move to the stool and expel the solution, then shower to clean up. After cleanup, take some acidophilus or other probiotic to restore gut flora. A second enema is not usually required but may be.

There are no dosages or detailed information about the use of crg or garlic in water and that is because it is a new idea and there have been no published studies about it. As far as I know, I am the one who has devised these methods of using crg based on my own experiences and I have shared them through the health benefits page of my website.

My research into garlic has allowed me to learn a lot of things about it that are not well known among the general public or among doctors, all based on studies I have read of or lectures I have attended by experts or personal conversations with chemists. By taking the results of these studies and seeing new ways they can be used, I have discovered ways to use crg that produce very successful results. These ways put the allicin in crg directly at the source of the infection.

It is my intention to educate as many people as possible as to the use of crg in unique ways to maximize its effectiveness in killing bacteria.

Garlic is not approved by the FDA for any use even though it is more effective against MRSA than any prescription medicine they have and a lot less expensive and can be administered at home. What more can you ask from something that makes your food taste better?

Hope this helps.

I doubt garlic water would affect endometriosis unless it was caused by bacteria or other microbes. But c-diff and IBS are bacterial diseases and are more susceptible to the allicin in garlic water baths.

Each person must decide whether to try the conventional medicine approach or an alternative therapy. If the mainstream therapy is working, stay with it but if it is not curing the disease, one might consider trying an alternative. Not being a doctor, I cannot give any medical advice, all I can do is discuss garlic and the changes that occur depending on how it is processed and used and let people and their doctors decide for themselves what, if anything to do.

I once had a case of severe food poisoning that caused my suffering for weeks with cramps, abdominal pain and diarrhea. The garlic water enema stopped all of that immediately and cleared up my problem and the following day I did a garlic water bath and it cleared up the bloodstream and I felt greatand have not had any real problems in the last eight years. I cannot urge anyone to do anything; your friend must decide for for herself which course she will take and for what reasons. We are all personally responsible for our own health and well being and the decisions we make regarding our health.

Before I did my enema and garlic bath I searched the internet and was unable to find any information except that a scottish doctor used garlic water and cured many patients with it. I decided to try it and it worked great for me. If you will read the Garlic Success Stories thread, you will find the stories of many whose MRSA went away using garlic water baths.

People should learn everything they can about everything they can and decide for themselves based on their ability to understand what they have learned. Ultimately, the weight of decision-making falls on the shoulders of each person. Sometimes they are cured of something, sometimes they get worse and sometimes people die. People in the so-called health care industry sometimes cure patients, sometimes they don't but they always make a lot of money whether the patient is cured or not. People just need to educate themselves because health care professionals don't always have the patients' best interests uppermost in their minds, sometimes they have their own self interest uppermost in their minds. Caveat emptor. People are ultimatrly responsible for their own health.

Hope this helps.
