"I think garlic penetrates all areas of the body, including the brain. I have a theory that it does not reach the lungs though, I think that is why I can kill, kill, and kill with garlic for 2-3 weeks solid, then they come back because the larvae in my lungs were not effected during their molting period."
I can vouch for the fact that it does get to the lungs. I have used garlic poultices for coughs and colds - many times. As soon as you put a garlic poultice on your foot/feet it is on your breath in less than 60 seconds. In fact it's on my breath in less than 30 seconds. Haven't resorted to a poultice for a long time because because I haven't had a cold in years.
Here's good information on a garlic poultice:
Garlic does get to all parts of the body and has been tested on malaria which is caused by a parasite in the blood stream. I haven't yet seen the results of that testing. Garlic kills parasites in the intestinal tract - all of them, but you can't stop when you see them in your stool, you have to keep eating raw garlic until their eggs are hatched (it doesn't kill the eggs) and the new parasite is formed.
I've coughed up enough blood to know that it makes it to the lungs. You'll notice that the alveoli are where the air and the blood meet or more appropriately where the blood picks up the oxygen. The alveoli are a part of the lung and I can guarantee you that garlic gets there and from there through the rest of the lung(s) too. I have but two lobes on the right side. Lost the upper one to cancer about three years ago and get along very well.
Lungs and Blood Vessels
The right lung is divided into three LOBES, or sections. Each lobe is like a balloon filled with sponge-like tissue. Air moves in and out through one opening -- a branch of the bronchial tube.
The left lung is divided into two LOBES.
The PLEURA are the two membranes, actually one continuous one folded on itself, that surround each lobe of the lungs and separate the lungs from the chest wall.
The bronchial tubes are lined with CILIA (like very small hairs) that have a wave-like motion. This motion carries MUCUS (sticky phlegm or liquid) upward and out into the throat, where it is either coughed up or swallowed. The mucus catches and holds much of the dust, germs, and other unwanted matter that has invaded the lungs. You get rid of this matter when you cough, sneeze, clear your throat or swallow.
The smallest subdivisions of the bronchial tubes are called BRONCHIOLES, at the end of which are the air sacs or alveoli.
The ALVEOLI are the very small air sacs that are the destination of air breathed in.
The CAPILLARIES are blood vessels that are imbedded in the walls of the alveoli. Blood passes through the capillaries, brought to them by the PULMONARY ARTERY and taken away by the PULMONARY VEIN. While in the capillaries the blood gives off carbon dioxide through the capillary wall into the alveoli and takes up oxygen from the air in the alveoli.
