Garlic Health benefits!

Some of my friends really hate garlic, especially the way it smells like a rotten egg, can cause indigestion, but for many, the bigger concern is that it can make your breath and sweat smell like…garlic..

But, Did you know that this so called "WONDER DRUG" (Garlic) has long been touted as a health booster?. According to researchers it shows that eating garlic appears to boost our natural supply of hydrogen sulfide. . Hydrogen sulfide is actually poisonous at high concentrations it’s the same noxious byproduct of oil refining that smells like rotten eggs. But the body makes its own supply of the stuff, which acts as an antioxidant and transmits cellular signals that relax blood vessels and increase blood flow.


The power to boost hydrogen sulfide production may help explain why a garlic-rich diet appears to protect against various cancers, including breast, prostate and colon cancer, say the study authors. Higher hydrogen sulfide might also protect the heart, according to other experts. Although garlic has not consistently been shown to lower cholesterol levels, researchers at Albert Einstein College of Medicine earlier this year found that injecting hydrogen sulfide into mice almost completely prevented the damage to heart muscle caused by a heart attack.

Garlic has been used medicinally for many years for treating bites, tumors, ulcers, snakebite, wounds, headaches, heart diseases, cancer, pimples, measles and many more. It also prevents infections such as the common cold, cough because of its Anti-bacterial, Anti-fungal and Anti-viral property.

TIPS:

  • Garlic is just magnificent and phenomenal. I am providing few of the basics known and reliable home remedies for some specific ailments, which you could try at your home .
  • If you have cold and flu, then take small amount of garlic every day until the infection disappears. Garlic tends to reduce the frequency of colds and flu without any side effects. A suggested dose would be two or three cloves of raw or cooked garlic a day.
  • We all face horrid acne, blemishes, blackheads during our teens. If you want to reduce it, or if you just want to glow up your skin, then take two cloves of raw garlic regularly with warm water early in the morning. It works as a blood cleanser and clean your system internally. Do not eat chocolates, spicy or oily food during this treatment and rinse your face five times a day with cold water. Drinks lots of water daily to flush off toxic waste from the blood and urinate whenever you feel that your bladder is full .Else, apply a cut clove gently on the affected area only if you have no sensitivity to it.
  • If you have High Cholesterol Level, use garlic in your food. This is the better way for heart patients to reduce their cholesterol level. Modern medical science suggests one reason that garlic might reduce cholesterol , i.e. "Garlic is a proven anti-oxidant". This property might help to prevent LDL (Low Density Lipo Protein) from being oxidized. In this way the cholesterol build-up that clogs the arteries could perhaps be reduced by garlic.
  • If you are very fat and want to loose weight, squeeze half lemon juice in one glass of luke warm water and drink it with two cloves of raw garlic regularly twice a day (morning and evening), for about three months. Avoid using starchy foods and fats. Do exercise regularly. You'll amazingly fell a great change in your body.
  • If you have Wrinkles, and you want to use anti ageing cream, it would be better to use 3 cloves of garlic regularly as it has a powerful antioxidant effect, which help to protect the body against damaging "Free Radicals". Remember, out skin is made up of collagen and it looses elasticity on yearly basis. Therefore, use garlic and do exercise regularly for the positive results.
  • If you have Earache, put two or three drops of warm garlic oil in the ears.
  • Take garlic to boosts the weight of babies in the womb. Thus, when they are born, they are heavier than they would have been if you hadn't taken garlic. Some babies are born too small, so garlic is a definite boon in these cases too.
  • Use two raw garlic daily to reduce the risk of cancer, due to its Anti-Carcinogenic properties. It helps prevent cancerous compounds from forming and developing into tumors. It also inhibits the growth of tumors.
  • If any insect bites you at the seaside, you just crush the garlic and apply it to the affected area to reduce pain and to remove poison.

HOW TO TAKE GARLIC:
Crush two or three small cloves of raw garlic and eat it raw or boiled, before going to sleep. You can have it with a glass of milk or with water. Please do not take more than two or three raw cloves of garlic per day as it might makes your blood thinner and might cause serious ailments.

Contra-indications/precautions:
Do not consume more than three to four raw cloves of garlic a day.

Patients having heart and other problems should take medical advice before consuming it.

It's best to avoid garlic before any surgery because it could probably disturb Anticoagulants.

If you are on any medication, always check with your doctor first before taking raw garlic.

Asthma patients should not use it as it worsens the symptoms of Asthma.

If you have sensitive skin, I recommend not using physically on the affected area. Raw garlic can burn delicate skin! Do not use directly on skin if your skin is sensitive or susceptible to rashes or other skin reactions without consulting your doctor first. People who are or may be allergic to garlic or any of its sulfur compounds shouldn't try direct garlic application on skin too.

SIDE-EFFECTS :
Although, garlic is a natural Anti-biotic but a very small number of people have been known to exhibit Hypersensitivity to garlic. Garlic allergy includes skin rash, temperature and headaches. Garlic intolerance could result in Heartburn or Flatulence.

POINTS TO BE NOTED:
It's important to remember that the effect of garlic on cold and flu comes from Allicin and this can be obtained from crushed, raw garlic and is destroyed by over cooking.

Garlic cloves cooked whole have very little medicinal value.

Garlic with strong smell has more Sulphur in it, which is good enough for medicinal purpose.

FEW FACTS ABOUT GARLIC :

  • Garlic helps to boost up our Metabolism rate. Thus help us to reduce our weight easily.
  • Garlic helps reduce Atherosclerotic buildup (Plaque) within the arterial system.
  • Garlic lowers or helps to regulate Blood Sugar.
  • Garlic helps to prevent blood clots from forming, thus reducing the possibility of Strokes.
  • Garlic helps to prevent Cancer, especially of the digestive system, prevent certain tumors from growing larger and reduces the size of certain tumors.
  • Garlic helps to remove heavy metals such as lead and mercury from the body.
  • Raw garlic is a proven natural antibiotic and, while far less strong than modern antibiotics, can still kill some strains of bacteria that have become immune or resistant to modern antibiotics.
  • Garlic dramatically reduces yeast infections in body parts.
  • It helps to make our immune system stronger against cancer, ulcers, hemorrhoids etc.
There are garlics capsules and tablets which you can buy at drugstore.

As I started taking 3 tables of garlic a day, I begin to feel better.

Nov. 15, Perfect day!

November 15: It was really a tiring day for me and I am happy because........

I wake up 9:00 a.m. and still I want to sleep, because the night before that day, we drink two bottles of beer and I think it's not enough. I still want another two bottles that night.

1:00 p.m.: I meet my friend at Gateway. We ate lunch and stroll around Araneta Center.
3:30p.m. I accompanied her going to bus terminal.

4:oo p.m.: This was the time I ride a bus going to SUCAT Paranaque to meet SEIYAH and SHIN. I arrived there at Mcdonald's 5:30 and I know I'm too early as usual. Seiyah arrived at 6.15pm and Shin 6:45 with her manager Kim. If you guys don't know, Seiyah is the one whose helping me with the site while Shin is the one who compose the song APPRECIATED dedicated to Marie Digby, and we recorded that song at SEIYAH'S house. The compose will be the background song of our surprise to Marie Digby. We finished around 10:00p.m. , Shin, Kim and me leave at 10:10 p.m., when we we're there at Lawton we separate ways. While I'm on the road Seiyah texted me that our banner is already in Marie Digby's website. Until I got home, I rush in my room to open may computer and see the website. OMG! It is really true. I think I'm only dreaming that time. Me and seiyah can't explain the way we feel. Only one thing we know, It was one of our happiest day being a MD fan.

I'm really overwhelmed the way Marie' Digby message me this :

"Jefford - it's all so beautiful. I am really moved by the site... thank you so much. You guys are the best and I am so lucky to have people that care so much about the music I create! I am making the most amazing next album... ( i hope that's not a bad thing to say ! lol) I just hope everyone really loves it. It's quite different but it's still me .. just different sounds.. Thank you again !"

Tagal rin palang hindi ako nakapag blog. Ano ba latest na nangyayari sa akin?. Ito ang latest. Sa darating na sabado bandang hapon ay pupunta ako sa Sucat to meet Seiyah and Shin. Si Shin ang composer ng Appreciated song dedicated to Marie Digby. Magkikita kita kami para finalize na ung song, praktis then record it sa studio. Medyo Kinakabahan nga ako dahil lahat yun mangyayari lamang sa isang araw baka kasi masayang lang ang panahon. Sana makapag record kami ng maayos diba. After namin mag record ay gagawin namang soundtrack ito para kay Marie Digby. Yun muna updates as of now.

Marié Digby - Final multiply banner

At last... After all of the hard work, we made it to the final layout of Marié Digby's multiply banner. We emailed Marié if she can include our multiply banner to her myspace official site and I hope she will. What do you think of the banner? good or bad. We decided not to make it a flash banner because of some version issues,the clickable button won't work.
