Garlic: Does It Eat Up The Brain?

A few herbalists have caused a great stir amongst many people in regards to the use and consumption of garlic, stating that garlic eats up the brain. It has numerous benefits if taken under the proper circumstances, healing from a disorder. On a long- term basis, used for cooking, I would be very cautious. http://dherbs.com/images/dherbs400x400.jpg

A few herbalists have caused a great stir amongst many people in regards to the use and consumption of garlic, stating that garlic eats up the brain. Despite the numerous health benefits of garlic, scientific research showed that garlic shockingly impaired brain activity.

Well, these particular herbalists are correct, but the facts need some clarification. EXCESSIVE use of garlic over long period of times can damage brain tissue. In high doses, garlic can be toxic and destroy brain synchronization.

Garlic is a member of the Allium family of plants, the same class of plants that contain the chemical "mustard" which is used to manufacture MUSTARD GAS. So while alliaceous plants possess a plethora of beneficial health properties, they also have a downside or downfall.

In its natural (raw) state, garlic can transmit botulism, a neurotoxin that can cause paralysis of the muscles.

Common Alliaceous plants include:
  • Garlic (Allium sativum)
  • Onion (Allium fistulosum)
  • Leek (Allium odorum)
  • Shallot (Allium ascalonicum)
  • Chive (Allium scordoprasum)

Many people simply like cooking with garlic and onion (for taste purposes, of course) and this is understandable, and if you're hooked on garlic, then it would be wise to compensate, for the sake of your brain, with the use of certain herbs that have an affinity for the brain such as Gingko Biloba, Gotu Kola, Holy (or Blessed) Thistle, Lady's Slipper, etc.

Medicinally, garlic is a potent and effective antiviral, antimicrobial, antifungal, and antibacterial agent. Is it okay to consume capsules of pure garlic (perhaps with standardized allium)? I say sure, if you're attempting to overcome a sickness or illness, i.e. so-called cold, so-called viral infection, weakened immune (defense) system, etc.

Sparse consumption of garlic and other alliaceous plants is of no big concern in my opinion. Just simply don't consume great deals of them and often. If you do, then you're in jeopardy of damaging your own brain and impairing your cognition. The research has been done and is convincing.

However, simply put, all things in moderation!

    Q: I noticed the CARDIO-VASCULAR FORMULA contains garlic. My partner would like to participate in the detox program with me, but she has allergies to garlic that make her very sick. Her allergist told her that dried herbs have less of an effect because of the processing. Do you think it would be safe to take, considering this is the only compound in the program that contains garlic? I assume it is a small amount and may not have a negative impact.

    A:

    THE FORMULA IS BALANCED WITH OTHER HERBS AND IS NOT EXCLUSIVELY GARLIC, WHICH SEEMS TO BE THE PROBLEM. SHE'LL BE FINE!

    A:

    Not that effective! The procedure is to BALANCE the hemispheres of the brain only, not restore brain cells. You can restore the brain cells by using the mind more. Check out our MENTAL SCIENCE MANUAL (e-book).

    Q: How long does it take for Gingko Biloba to start thinning the blood for those who want to get off of blood thinners? My friend is on blood thinners. He would like to make the switch, but fear the Gingko Biloba may not work fast enough in case of a blood clot, or heart attack occurring. Can he start taking the both for maybe 2 or three days then completely get off the thinners?

    A:

    The person perhaps shouldn't even consider Gingko due to the fear which is damnable. When people are in fear I usually tell them to do what makes them feel good, and remove the fear because if a person does something in the face of fear and a bad reaction occurs, the fear won't get the blame. The herb or other natural thing will. However, for blood thinning effects of Gingko Biloba, take 9-12 capsules throughout the day, i.e. 3 capsules every 3-4 hours.

    Q: My daughter is currently taking Gingko Biloba + Gotu Kola (1 capsule), Magical Alchemical Elixir (2 drops twice daily), Cardio-Vascular Formula (3 capsules), Brain Tuner (3 capsules) and children detox from Dherbs. However, she still experience palpitation + mild seizure (raising of hands) every morning upon waking up. She experience mild fits once a day usually in her sleep/nap and get a severe seizure once every 10-12 days also during her sleep/nap. She was also diagnosed as Asperger Syndrome when she was seven and has improved considerably but not able to focus and easily get irritated. She likes to flipflop her hands a lot and always in wonderland during class. Not able to understand and totally lost in class though she has a very good memory. I also bring her to temple every week to pray and seek spiritual guidance and apply Reiki to her everyday. At present I just do not know what else to do to control her seizure and morning palpitation. Will Epson salt bath help in her epilepsy and anise powder water help in her palpitation. Your guidance and help is much appreciated.

    A:

    Something is going on while she's sleeping (visiting another realm). It sounds like it could be something from a past-life. Consider placing crystals near her bed and under pillow. Crystals such as amethyst, selenite, angelite, quartz, turquoise, black tourmaline, pink or purple lepidolite, lapis lazuli, sodalite, etc.

    Q: My daughter had seizures as a child starting at 4mos. She hasn't had one since age 13 until last week at the of age 21. What can you recommend?

    A:

    Give your daughter OXY-DROPS (20 drops with every glass of water) and BRAIN TUNER (1 capsule 3 times a day) for epilepsy. Seizures are caused by lack of oxygen to the brain. Therefore, increase the blood flow and oxygenation to the brain.

    Also, give our Brain Tuner tea a try. The herbs Gotu Kola and/or Gingko Biloba in tea form are also helpful for seizures.

That BPA-Free Label Isn't As Safe As You Think

Back in 2008, bisphenol-A (BPA) got some really negative attention when the mainstream media started reporting on the various health problems associated with the industrial chemical. And with good reason: BPA has been linked with a slew of negative health outcomes including reproductive problems, obesity, diabetes, and cancer. Removing BPA from products like sippy cups, toys, and water bottles is undoubtedly a good thing, but then the question becomes, what did companies replace it with in order to call their products BPA-free?

Many of the chemicals that have replaced BPA haven’t been studied nearly as much. However, a paper published in the National Institute of Health journal Environmental Health Perspectives reported that almost all commercially available BPA-free plastics still leached estrogen and some leached synthetic estrogen more potent than what’s found in BPA. Estrogen that’s not produced by the body can impact estrogen levels and getting too much or too little can be problematic, especially in utero and early childhood. Elevated levels can increase a women’s risk for some types of breast cancer, for example.
