Anti-vampire, anti-cancer, anti-fungal, anti-candida, anti-inflammatory, anti-viral & no it ain’t an avocado pit I’m talkin bout- this my friends, is one single clove of what I like to call nature’s best medicine: garlic 🧛♀️ Had to use an avo for size to show you guys the absolute biggest garlic clove I’ve ever come across. And that says A LOT because I eat garlic pretty much every single day. I’ve been meaning to make a post about why I recommend raw garlic when I get asked nearly on a daily basis what I use when I’m coming down with something (which, if you know me, is quite often). Sore throat? Garlic. Influenza? Garlic. Candida overgrowth? Garlic. Don’t wanna be in the next Twilight movie? You catch my drift here.
I recognize that some people are quite sensitive to garlic for one reason or another, so if that’s the case, I suggest smashing the cloves to release some of the sulfuric acid and then diluting it in some good quality olive oil. But if you can stomach it & maybe ur just like NAH, I tell people who are hesitant to disguise the harshness with some herbs & tuck the clove away into a healthy fat. My favorite way to eat a clove is crushing it & sticking it in some avocado with basil. And this isn’t just some hippy old wive’s tale. There are SO many promising human studies demonstrating not only the benefits of the compounds found in garlic, but also the benefits of ingesting the clove itself. One study found that people who had been diagnosed with the influenza virus & consumed 1-3 raw garlic cloves/day had a 3-4 day DECREASE in duration of illness. A couple other studies found that raw garlic was able to decrease candida overgrowth the same or BETTER than prescription medication, with absolutely no adverse side effects!! Affordable, accessible, effective, and most importantly, evidence-based food as medicine 🧪
