Creating Waves of Awareness
From ancient time through World War I, garlic has been used to treat the wounded. During the 1920's, research at Sandoz pharmacy in Switzerland isolated garlic's antibiotic compound, alien, which has no medicinal value until the herb is chewed, chopped or crushed. An enzyme transforms alliin into powerful antibiotic allicin. (So just try chewing a dozen raw cloves) in case of ulcer, use more garlic in your diet and garlic also kills the H pylori, bacteria that cause ulcer.
Garlic for cholesterol control
One half to one clove of garlic per day reduces cholesterol by 9 percent. Garlic can impair blood clotting.
Garlic for cancer prevention
Garlic reduces the risk of several cancer, for example colon cancer, prostate and bladder cancer. A few cloves a week cuts risk by 32 percent.
Note: you can get same benefits by using mother tincture.

A significant finding from Washington State University shows that garlic is 100 times more effective than two popular antibiotics at fighting disease causing bacteria commonly responsible for foodborne illness.
Their work was published recently in the Journal of Antimicrobial Chemotherapy a follow-up to the author’s previous research in Applied and Environmental Microbiology which conclusively demonstrated that garlic concentrate was effective in inhibiting the growth of C. jejuni bacteria.
Garlic increases the overall antioxidant levels in the body.
Scientifically known as Allium sativa, garlic has been famous throughout history for its ability to fight off viruses and bacteria. Louis Pasteur noted in 1858 that bacteria died when they were doused with garlic. From the Middle Ages on, garlic has been used to treat wounds, being ground or sliced and applied directly to wounds to inhibit the spread of infection. The Russians refer to garlic as Russian penicillin.
FOX | According to a new study by researchers from the Jiangsu Provincial Center for Disease Control and Prevention in China, consuming raw garlic might actually help prevent lung cancer, along with other various chronic health problems.
Researchers believe that raw garlic's benefits are connected to a chemical called allicin, which is released once raw garlic is smashed or diced. This chemical is believed to not only reduce inflammation, but also reduce damage from free radicals to the body's cells.
For the study, the research team analyzed data from 1,424 lung cancer patients and 4,500 healthy adults that was collected from 2003 to 2010. The results showed that frequent consumption of raw garlic cut the risk of lung cancer by 44 percent for those who did not smoke.
Researchers also reported that for those who smoked, incorporating raw garlic into their diets could still potentially decrease the risk of lung cancer by 30 percent.
A previous study at the University of South Australia concluded that garlic could decrease the risks of bowel tumors by as much as a third, while other studies have found that garlic can help to repress common colds and assist with inflammation. Although numerous studies have highlighted certain health benefits from eating raw garlic, they have yet to determine whether or not cooked garlic might possess the same capabilities.
“The protective effect of garlic on the development of cancer has been reported in the in vitro and in vivo experimental studies; however, few human epidemiologic studies have evaluated the relationship,” the study’s researchers wrote.
This study was published in Cancer Prevention Research.
thanks Dear Debby Bruck
i have knowledge about more than 100 herbs how the that herbs use in homeopathy, herbal and allopathic system of medicines.
Nice to see that you have this knowledge of herbs. I do as well, have used herbal preps many years before I started practicing Homeopathy.
Each country has their own wonderful medicinal hebs.
Growing up in Indonesia as a child, I was treated by my grandmother with only herbal plant meds. (bad failing kidneys!)
I still use Indonesian medicinal plants today these are called "Jamu".
Western herbs I also use
Chinese and Ayurvedic as well.
Diallyl trisulfide induces Bcl-2 and caspase-3-dependent apoptosis via downregulation of Akt phosphorylation in human T24 bladder cancer cells
Yun-Bin Wang, Jie Qin, Xiang-Yi Zheng, Yu Bai, Kai Yang, Li-Ping Xie
It is well known that the garlic-derived organosulfur compounds (OSCs) are effective to inhibit a variety of human cancers such as prostate, breast, colon, skin, lung, and bladder cancers. Herein, the pro-apoptotic effects of diallyl trisulfide (DATS), one of garlic-derived OSCs, on T24 bladder cancer cells were investigated. The results demonstrated that DATS suppressed proliferation of T24 bladder cancer cells in a dose- and time-dependent manner which was associated with induced G2/M Phase cell cycle arrest and apoptosis. Mechanistically, DATS inhibits phosphatidylinositol 3'-kinase/Akt activation that, in turn, results in modulation of Bcl-2 family proteins, leading to enhanced apoptosis of T24 cells. These findings suggest that DATS may be an effective way for treating human bladder and other types of cancers.
