    Default Simon, say it ain't so.......

    Simon Parkes mentioned in recent video chats that he felt that garlic was detrimental to our bodily systems now. He didn't want to elaborate due to possible *GARLIC POLICE* activity, which I can certainly understand.

    Does anyone actually know WHY he feels that garlic is not beneficial to our bodies at this time? As a nutritionist and one who is raising frequency levels, I'd love to know if garlic is somehow retarding this process and if we need to cut it out completely or just cut down.

    Thanks and thanks again....

    I personally feel that garlic has many health benefits including anti microbial and fungal and viral. I think he was concerned that it has neuro-inhibitor properties, but again in my understanding, it's not always a bad thing having small quantities of a neuro-inhibitor as we naturally have them in our bodies and well as chemicals that excites our neurones - it's all about balance. These are just my thoughts on the matter of garlic, which i too love in small amounts!

    I recently used fresh garlic to rid myself of a horrible urinary tract infection that did not respond to antibiotic therapy. Where most antibiotics have one or two mechanisms to destroy bacteria, garlic has 27 different mechanisms which makes it to too complex for bacteria to build a tolerance to. So, I strongly disagree. Personally, I find that really irresponsible for him to say something if he is not going to offer some sort of rationale.

    Garlic is waaay too much of a super food for me to be considering that it's detrimental to our body, without research or at least a valid explanation.

    Well, that certainly answers my questions and added lots of information I didn't even know..... I have actually cut down a little bit with the garlic but being plant based, I put it in just about everything I make...pesto, sauces, salad dressings, pasta.....I'm going to do the test and eat it for a while and then stop for a week and see if I can denote any differences in my system. Thanks for the responses, so informative !!

    I have a friend that has a garlic farm, fresh organic garlic is great but I would never buy the cheap Chinese stuff they sell at the supermarket.
    Thats the difference and limit for me as far as eating garlic.

    I always appreciated Inelia Benz' take on garlic. She says it is a medicine, not a food. And we wouldn't eat medicine would we? But rather use it when it might benefit us. She also mentioned something about it affecting the way the brain's halves talk to each other, and that it promotes in the brainwave patterns that results (paraphrased) in a mind, that tends to be ego focused -- which makes sense if we consider it a medicine - healing requires a stronger focus on the physical body by the mind.

    There are also Jainists in India that refrain from eating garlic and onions and cite spiritual reasons.

    All this talk of garlic is making me hungry ...

    Hi Becky! I think you are very spot on.
    In the begginning of this year I was listening an interview from a whistleblower (and darn it I don't remember his name) who was talking about this psychic people working for the NSA and also about super soldiers and whatnot. And this guy explained he didn't eat garlic because garlic is a neuro- inhibitor and therefore it interferes or turns off your psychic abilities.
    Now IDK if Simon Parkes was refering to that, but since he claims being very psychic and do lots of energy healing and psychic readings, etc. I would not be surprised if what you mentioned was the reason for him to abstain from eating garlic.
    Still, often I like a little garlic in my food.
    But this is just my speculations, based on what I've heard from another people. It is really a pity he would not explain this in detail. Because we all know garlic has lots of medicinal properties and can be extremely beneficial too. Whatever reasons he has would of been nice if he explained them to people.

    BTW the link about garlic has IMO very good info.
    But now I'm going to try that recipe with garlic and tahini on bread somebdy posted up there because it sounds delitious.
