Great article Ollie!!
I will add here that I use garlic with great results...at the first sign of a cold or sinus trouble, I put a few slices of garlic and a few basil leaves in a tea ball, steep in a cup of hot water for 10 minutes, then drink and also just swallow a few slices of garlic every couple hours and it will knock it out within 24 hours (usually faster though).
I have a couple teeth that have cavities and at times they have became abscessed and swollen my face...I take a thin slice of garlic, place between the cheek and the gum of the area of the tooth and within a few hours the swelling and pain is gone. The garlic will make your mouth sore and it does burn when first placed in the mouth. But I would rather deal with the burn of the garlic than put the poisons of the modern pharmaceuticals in my body.
I also eat garlic on a daily basis either in my food or just swallow a few slices. At 51 years of age, I have been on the modern meds before and all they did was make my health worsen. I have not taken any modern meds, not even an aspirin in over 7 years and my health has continually improved despite me getting older. Garlic works, no doubt, I have experienced it first hand and no one can ever change my knowledge of that no matter what they say. JMHO
Have a great day!!
