    Default Is Garlic actually a poison?

    Back in the 1980's, in his research on human brain function, Dr Robert [Bob] C. Beck, DSc. found that garlic has a detrimental effect on the brain. He found that in fact garlic is toxic to humans because its sulphone hydroxyl ions penetrate the blood-brain barrier and are poisonous to brain cells.

    Dr Beck explained that as far back as the 1950s it was known that garlic reduced reaction time by two to three times when consumed by pilots taking flight tests. This is because the toxic effects of garlic desynchronize brain waves. "The flight surgeon would come around every month and remind all of us: "Don't you dare touch any garlic 72 hours before you fly one of our airplanes, because it'll double or triple your reaction time. You're three times slower than you would be if you'd [not] had a few drops of garlic."

    For precisely the same reason the garlic family of plants has been widely recognized as being harmful to dogs." end quote.

    How I love Garlic and onions and the rest of the family.

    I had no idea this was a hindrance to spiritual growth. What have been your experiences with mixing garlic and OBE, Shamanism, meditation healing etcetera?

    Total BS is my opinion. I grew up in an area with a lot of Ukrainian people who ate a ton of garlic & onions. They were sick way less often than anyone else. I love them both myself and don't think eating them hinders me spiritually.

    I feel bereft as well but his remarks coupled with the ancient wisdom makes me doubt. I will cut down on it's use. As I can't see the air force forbidding its use for 3 days before flight because they believed it's ingestion would impair their reflexes (2-3 times slower) with out foundation.

    Garlic is one of the very first things dispensed by most Naturopaths when dealing with any condition which involves infections, viruses, fungi, parasites, molds and bacteria. Garlic is nature's anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-parasitical, anti-viral.

    Allicin (liquid garlic extract) contains one entire bulb for every 10 drops.

    Allimax (dried garlic capsules) contains one entire bulb per capsule!

    The above have been incredibly efficient in killing infections and other above mentioned pathogens.

    Upon taking one of the above garlic supplements, some people will experience a sense of relaxation. For such people it is best to take the supplements at bedtime. Perhaps, for this matter pilots were told not to take garlic before flying. This would make sense. Bedtime is the best time for powerful garlic supplementation. But regular garlic in cooking is not powerful enough to cause any slowing of the system, however it still provides health benefits.

    Onions have similar properties to garlic but nowhere nearly as powerful. This is why there are no onion supplements.

    Of course, some people are allergic to garlic and onions, in which case, they cannot ingest them.

    But above and beyond allergies, garlic is a powerful food and supplement.

    I find that onions and garlic do help me to relax which is one of the reasons I use both. Onions help bring on natural chemicals the stop insomnia in it's tracks. As for garlic, whenever there was an infection via blood, virus, bacteria, the body readily accepted garlic as a immune booster to fight the same. I have noticed that after a good spaghetti dinner out on the town, I get sleepy, but what's the harm in going to sleep?

    Dr. Jethro Kloss was kicked out of this country by the same quacks that refused to listen about holistic herbs the body's cells accept better than "lab drugs/untested/bribed w/pharma stockshares CDC.

    I've seen many a flu bug also get kicked in the cajones, when added to a chicken soup or broth.

    Check around, sometimes those in charge and "on the take" are skewing the evidence/results while pushing their portfolio products.

    Seek and ye shall find.

    They also say brassicas are bad for something, and other things are not good for this or that. What is an omnivore to do, never mind a vegetarian?

    I personally don’t think onions do too much damage to reflexes. I eat loads of ‘em and when I am approached at close range by an 70-80 mph tennis ball, I can do more with it than most people I know.

    Secondly, if onions hinder both reflexes and spiritual growth, it almost sounds like you need good reflexes for spiritual growth. Is this perhaps why the clergy are sometimes nicknamed sky pilots?

    The best way to develop reflexes is through practice, and the same holds imo for spiritual growth, and many other things besides.

    I have also read an "old wives tale" about onions in a health article that apparently is true. If you are sick with a cold or flu you should cut an onion in half and put it in your bedroom beside your sickbed. The onion is supposed to attract the toxins in the air. Within a day or so the onion will turn black which indicates it has toxins in it.

    Assuming that they do slow reaction times (which I seriously doubt), I think it's quite a logical leap to say that they are bad for the brain or organs or especially that they are a hindrance to spiritual growth. I'd like to see some serious scientific papers on this though.

    Well, mom said garlic is good [for health], just throw away the ones that have started sprouting - those are toxic. I also know that [Vietnamese] Buddhist monks are NOT to eat garlic & onions.

    Quote from above source
    Even though garlic or onions are not processed or altered, they are regarded as junk foods because they do not contribute to the welfare of the body when ingested. On the contrary, they contribute to disease by adding toxins to the body. As you will learn from this lesson, there are no health benefits to reap from ingesting either of these foods. They both contain toxic irritants which result in much harm when included in the diet and should, therefore, never be consumed. The importance of this statement will become evident upon completion of this lesson.

    I dare to read this and not reconsider the OP as a fact! OH NO I have convinced my self!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    sheme this is interesting information. I ate garlic and onions for years and I really enjoy them. Then a few years ago I came across an article by a doctor (I can't remember the name of the doctor or the website) but he gave compelling reasons why garlic should be avoided. I remember being very dismayed and skeptical because of the huge amount of information out there that garlic is so healthy....
    I must say it hasn't stopped me from continuing to eat and enjoy garlic and onions but it is interesting "food for thought" haha

    I just made a black beans soup with full of garlic and onions. Also a lighter bean salad with red onions and veges.

    The soup is reaaaally good.
