How To Use Garlic as an Antibiotic

An alternative method in treating colds, sore throats, ear aches/infections and even the flu.

Infections work by multiplying in your body at rapid rates…so the earlier you can hit it, the smaller their army, and the less damage they can do

Modern medicine now employs transdermal patches to dose hormones, medications, and nicotine…so just think of the garlic press as an herbal transdermal patch.

The Garlic Press

Put down a spot of oil, smash some garlic, and fold the paper towel up around I.

Press against the skin near the area that you are focusing treatment on – preferably the neck or chest area. The neck is easy access to lots of blood vessels, and the lymph glands. The throat is usually one of the first areas that we start feeling symptoms.

Hold the press in place for a couple of minutes, or as long as you can stand the smell. Some people are sensitive to garlic, and their skin will get red and may sting. If this is the case, just be careful to move the press to a different location each time they start feeling it sting. Try to get as much into the system as possible, with as little trauma as possible. Wipe down the area well after using the press if the person is sensitive to the oils.

Or try this alternative method..

‘Crush a few garlic cloves, put them in a little jar or bowl, and cover it just so in olive oil.In about a half hour, I rub the oil on my feet. I do this on my kids as well when they have a bad cough or they have a chest cold. For me, I also put the garlic pieces between my toes (but not for kids).Then, I put socks on for the night and go to sleep. When I wake up, I have garlic breath, so I know it works! No kidding! Garlic enters your system and heads straight for the lungs.’


Honey and Lemon Cough and Cold Remedy

* ½ c. Raw (unheated) Honey*

* Half a lemon

* 2 fresh or frozen garlic cloves- don’t use the pre-minced stuff. It’s lost its strong medicinal properties.

* a chunk of fresh or frozen ginger* (optional)


1. Fill a small jar halfway with raw honey.

2. Squeeze the lemon half into the honey and stir.

3. Crush the garlic cloves and ginger. You don’t want to pulverize them or you’ll end up with little bitty chunks floating around in the honey…just crush them one good time, to start the enzyme

reactions in the cloves. I like to whack the cloves of garlic with the side of my meat tenderizer mallet, and I do the same thing to the ginger.

4. Drop them into the honey and stir.

5. Store this in the fridge, because the cold feels good on hot, scratchy throats.
