If raw garlic is killing the same amount of good bacteria as it is bad bacteria than how productive can that be? I guess it† might be† productive if one has a gut that has been completely taken over by pathogens.† Seems like there are better alternatives at reducing candida without all the gut inflammation/mucus production that the harsh sulfur compounds from garlic can produce. People that have severe IBS or† ultra sensitive gut might not be able to tolerate more than a few rounds of raw garlic. For me I found coconut oil/milk to be just as effective/more effective than garlic without all the gut inflammation that garlic gave me--- But that's my case. If someone is going to do a lot of raw garlic it might be a good idea to take extra bicarbonates or greens to help limit some of the irritation.
