“Garlic for Medicinal Use”

Easy to use, natural, tastes good.

Unknown whether it works for some things mentioned...

Yesterday I wrote about Garlic the plant – how it can be used in cooking, how to grow it, and a bit about its vitamin content and usefulness. (See review of Garlic in the Plants section). The thing is that although it tastes great and makes for an excellent flavour in cooking, it also has an...

Garlic is one of the easiest thing to grow in the garden, the most useful herb to have in the house and boasts one of the most interesting heritages of all plants. Grown from seeds or cloves, it is very cold tolerant and so may be planted before the end of the frosts. It does best in rich well...

Seems to alleviate a host of ailments.

Causes odour, some may be intolerant to it.

Much seems to have been written about garlic being good for the heart, cholesterol, circulation and a host of other conditions, but I thought I would add my "two-pence-worth" based on my experience of this pungent little herb. To begin with, I must say that I have never found any benefit in...

“Phew That Stinks or Does It”

published 07/10/2001

The tremendous medical values

The smell once it has been cooked

When the word Garlic is mentioned ones mind usually wanders to the pungent and unpleasant aroma associated with it. This is not necessarily true and we should instead look at the enormous benefits associated with Garlic and how we could all take full advantage of its medicinal values. The old...

Another one of my weird things that I do apart from eating mash potato dried and also powdered milk and cream and vinegar is my love of garlic. I can eat it till the cow comes home, raw. I love to sit there and chew on a clove of garlic. So there we go off to the supermarket and buy a bulb of...

“Does my breath smell...”

Great to treat minor illnesses.

Can cause bad breath!

I am a person who would like to treat my body’s illnesses with natural products and chemicals, rather than with harsh man-made drugs of the twenty-first century. I therefore love to eat Garlic for reasons, which I am about to explain. Within the history of the human race, the Garlic plant...

Nasty niffs

I wrote an opinion on "mint" a while ago expecting it to be dull and boring and finding it to be anything but. Its strange how these common herbs and plants have such lively histories, how something we keep lying around our fridges, gardens or turn up our noses at in the supermarket were once so...

“Stinky breath”

published 28/02/2002

Can ward off colds

Stinky

I have long been a believer in the benefits of eating garlic and making it part of your healthy eating schedule. I don't take the garlic capsules as I like to have the real thing and I can't taste it very well when it's cooked, so I eat raw garlic! Yes, I know it's smelly and maybe that's why, as...
