I dice my garlic fine to expose more of the parasite killing juice and oils, so it's even hotter. But I mix it with thick plain yogurt and salt. That cuts the flame pretty well. The thicker the yogurt you use the better it cuts the flame. I use Trader Joe's Mediterranean Cheese Style Yogurt, which tastes great and is much thicker and creamier than regular yogurt. The reason for putting the salt in is to help cut the hot, not for flavor, so put a little more than just for flavoring (it should still taste good).
I got the idea to try this because thatís actually a Mediterranean condiment, and I have a friend who raves about it. Of course the dish probably has a little less garlic than I use. To get more flame cutting action without access to Meditteranean cheese style yogurt, you can thicken regular yogurt by draining it (ie placing it in cheesecloth or muslim and leaving it in the fridge with a weight on it). I can eat a ton of raw garlic this way.
Thanks Scat. I'd be happy to give you my email addy, but I'd prefer not to post it as spammers use bots to search the internet for email addresses on forum boards. If you check the "allow forum members to email you" box on your next post I'll send it to you. Or you could just send me a one liner without the attachments and I can reply back. Thanks. I'm spam paranoid. :o)
hi Gardeninginthefog - .... i like this idea of dicing garlic and putting into yogurt. do you just swallow it down or do you attempt to chew the diced garlic? if you just swallow it down do you have problems with garlic breath or garlic odor? how much garlic do you eat a day?
I put the garlic through a press so that it is really fine, and I swallow it down without chewing. As for smelling like garlic, if you have garlic in your body at all you will smell like it. Once I had a really itchy butt on the parasite herbs and I peeled and skinned a clove and inserted it into the colon. In about one minute I could taste garlic in my mouth. It gave me garlic breath, and that coming out your pores garlic smell.
On how much garlic to take, I don't know how much is too much. I've made Schultz's potassium broth with two heads of garlic (the recipe actually calls for more). If you eat enough of it you will definately notice the effect it has on those guys! They get really uncomfortable right away. I usually only take it for two to three days, because I think it wipes out some friendly bacteria in the bowel as well. AND I dont think it takes more than a few doses to do what it's going to do. I've taken as much as 7 to 15 cloves at once. Cloves vary so much in size.
:) Hope that helps.
There're so many ways to eat garlic - I don't see why you would ever have to eat it by itself.
The yogurt and salt is truly a very common condiment; I love fat though, so I usually do the same thing with sour cream. Once you have that sauce (you can also add some dill to it) you can put it on a sandwich, salad, chicken... it's great with felaffel or as a dip, in a simple salad of red radishes and scallions, the options go on.
You may be surprised, but the way you cut your garlic does make a difference in how it tastes (saw it on Martha Stewart and confirmed it for myself). If you do the crushing with a knife thing or put it through a press, the cells break very rapidly, making the flavor much more bitter and hot. I usually just chop it very finely.
If you have the money and availability, you could also try something called "heirloom garlic"; the skin is kinda purple. I think it's simply hardneck garlic (what's usually sold in stores is softneck). Hardneck garlic grows in colder regions, and is more mild in flavor. I personally love it, but it's not always easy to find.
Basically, raw garlic is quite palatable in any finely shredded salad:
cucumber (just grate the cucumber, add some salt, pepper, your garlic, any herbs you have around, especially dill or cilantro, and sour cream if you eat dairy)
beet (I actually use boiled beets, grate them, and mix with salt, pepper, lots of raw garlic, and sour cream) - This is totally delicious!
Try finely chopped tomatoes, kidney beans (I take canned), and lots of chopped cilantro and raw garlic
You can roast your own red peppers under the broiler or on the grill intil they're charred and soft (much cheaper than buying roasted red peppers), let them cool, peel the skin, cut in slices, put some salt and vinegar over them, and add chopped garlic; this can keep in the fridge for a while.
OR finely grate a couple of carrots, and mix them with salt, finely chopped walnuts, some oil, and... finely chopped garlic! This is a delicious salad - I make it for parties. You can always add mayonnaise if you're into that kinda thing.
Actually, chopped walnuts, salt, and oil mix great with garlic and taste terrific on just about anything, especially eggplant. Also, feel free to add any finely chopped fresh herbs.
Anyway, I may be going way over the top here, but if you want more ideas let me know.
That is not such as strange thing to do- the rectum garlic insert. I just read a book by MArk Konlee for AIDS and CIDS (which I have) and it is recommended in this book. It is called a 'Colon Implant'. I consume garlic regularly and this seemed to work better than eating it. I now dip mine in Oregano oil. Be careful that you don't use full strength- ouch!!!
The other good way of eating garlic for cleansing reasons (also recommended in this book) was to eat a few cloves then follow it by a couple of teaspoons of pysillium in water. This gives a sustained release of garlic through the system.
I don't know what I would do without garlic. If I don't eat it I break out in herpes and feel so unwell.
