Garlic contains a chemical called Allicin. It is released when garlic is cut or crushed. Allicin is garlic’s defense against pests, and exhibits antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral, and antiprotozoal properties. It kills the bacteria responsible for strep-throat and sore throats.
I had some signs/symptoms of having strep throat. In addition to gulping Raw Honey, taking shots of Apple Cider Vinegar, and gargling a mixture of hydrogen peroxide and mouthwash,
I cut a clove of garlic in half, and stuck a half in each cheek. I sucked on them and crushed them against my teeth until they disintegrated, and swallowed it. I did this twice/ as needed for the pain and discomfort. The effect and relief was instantaneous.
It reduced the pain and swelling, got rid of the white spots in my throat, and now I have hardly any throat issues at all.
I smell like garlic, but I can swallow and breathe without pain during sleep again! :DDD
Take care of yourselves.
