Prof. Hristo Mermerski’s Garlic Remedy. Boosts Your Immune System.

Garlic Remedy Food In Love OutI wondered what the taste of the remedy with 12 bulbs of garlic may be like, but I know for sure that what happened in the end, I did not expect at all.

This recipe is attributed to a Bulgarian scientist, Professor Hristo Mermerski, and there are some claims that the remedy cured thousands of cancer-sufferers.  Prof. Mermerski supposedly says “It’s a food that treats the entire body, and the cancer in such an organism simply disappears”.

 

I like exploring alternative cures, and this one has been floating over internet for a while, but I couldn’t find the proofs, or real testimonies that speak about its effectiveness.

I was attracted, however, to try this as a remedy for colds and flu. If nothing else, it is more than obvious that remedy contains significant amount of essential nutrients necessary to boost the immune system function.

What attracted me the most was a serious amount of fresh garlic, which I consider miraculous plant by itself, so I decided to give it a try.

Garlic RemedyThe recipe calls for

  • 400 g of organic sprouted wheat
  • 15 fresh organic lemons
  • 12 fresh organic garlic bulbs
  • 1 kg organic honey
  • 400 g organic walnuts

Preparation time. You need 2 days to make the sprouted wheat. Once you have them, you’d need additional 2.5-3 hours to put it all together.Garlic Remedy-Wheat Sprouted

Instructions:

  1. Put the wheat in a glass container (e.g. baking dish) and pour water until you cover it by 3-4 centimeters. After 12-14 hours, drain the grains, rinse them, drain them again and leave for another 24 hours to enable growing 1-2 millimeters long sprouts.
  2. Once you have the sprouted grains, peel the garlic (yes it’s a lot of work peeling 12 bulbs of garlic :)).
  3. Squeeze juice of 10 lemons
  4. Put sprouted wheat, garlic, lemon juice, remaining 5 lemons (don’t peel them!) and walnuts in food processor and make a paste. Make sure to remove seeds and cut the lemons in small pieces (my food processor was battling for quite a while to process the lemon peel).
  5. In a glass bowl mix together the paste and the honey with a wooden spoon.
  6. Pour it in the glass containers and leave it the fridge for 3 days before consuming.

Dr. Mermerski suggests consuming it half an hour before breakfast, lunch, dinner and before going to bed.  For cancer he suggests 1 – 2 tablespoons every 2 hours.

Now the best part – I could not resist waiting for 3 days to taste the remedy. To my surprise, the remedy tasted delicious!!! (note I DO like garlic lot :)). The lemon zest, nuts and wheat were sort of crunchy, the garlic taste was nicely balanced with lemon –  almost perfect, I’d say. However you’d probably need to stay at home for a while and eat an apple at some point to neutralize fully the taste of garlic in your mouth 🙂

Now this can be a nice addition to a detox/cleansing protocol, need to try that as well. Thank you prof. Hristo 🙂

Probably the next time I’d add to it a couple of beetroots to make the remedy even more complete, and it may even improve the taste. Or not – we shall see 🙂

Garlic Tea for Fighting Cold & Flu

Home Remedy for Cold: Garlic Tea For Quick Relief

Garlic Tea Fights ColdGarlic excels as an antibacterial and antiviral herb for cold, coughs and the flu.

For those who are not up to eating it raw, which tends to be absolutely the best way to consume it, an alternative comes in form of garlic tea which surprisingly has a pretty nice flavor.

Preparation does matter a lot, because when handled incorrectly, garlic does not release or loses allicin, the most beneficial compound.

Preparation Time

  • 25 minutes

Ingredients

  • 5-6 cloves of garlic. When treating a child’s cold, use less garlic 2-3 as it may be too hot for them.
  • 2 cups of filtered water
  • Raw or pure honey
  • Juice of lemon

Steps

  • Peel the cloves.
  • Mince or press the cloves into a paste. This is important, as by chopping garlic more finely, more allicin is produced. Pressing garlic or mincing it into a smooth paste will give you the strongest flavor and may also result in an increased amount of allicin.Press Garlic For Most Benefits
  • Let the garlic sit for 15 minutes. This is important, otherwise the allicin will not get a chance to get released.
  • Bring the water to a boil. Lower the heat, and add the garlic paste. Lowering the heat to low or medium is important, otherwise allicin will be destroyed.
  • Simmer for another 10-12 minutes. Important: simmering over 15 min. will weaken and damage allicin.
  • Strain the garlic and allow the tea to cool to mouth temperature.
  • Add raw honey and lemon juice. Alternatively you can add a pinch of cayenne pepper.
  • Drink it throughout the day.

Garlic – Nature’s Little Miracle

Garlic – Nature’s Little Miracle

Garlic is certainly one of nature’s miracle plants. It has been known since the beginning of recorded history for its ability to heal and strengthen the body.

  • Garlic Is A Powerful Antibiotic.

Garlic destroys both gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria including streptococcus, staphylococcus, cholera, bacterial dysentery, typhoid, diphtheria, tuberculosis, tetanus and many others.

A significant finding from Washington State University shows that garlic is 100 times more effective than antibiotics.

Laboratory made antibiotics are non-selective and, besides harmful, they kill also “friendly bacteria” needed for proper metabolic function. This is causing us digestive problems, yeast and fungal overgrowth. Our bodies become immune to these antibiotics over time and dangerous resistant strains of bacteria are occasionally developed.

Garlic, on the other hand,  is “selective” and magically kills only bacteria that is harmful and at the same time enhances our friendly bacteria and improves our intestinal flora and digestion!

In addition to that, when the properties of garlic are present in the bloodstream, many aspects of our immune system are enhanced.  

  • Garlic Is A Powerful Antiviral Agent.

Garlic destroys various viruses that cause respiratory infections and influenza. Garlic destroys on contact the viral infections of measles, mumps, herpes simplex #1 and #2, herpes zoster, viral hepatitis, scarlet fever, mononucleosis, chicken pox and others.

  • Garlics Is A Strong Antifungal Agent.

In the laboratory, garlic has proven to be more potent than any known antifungal agent including Nystatin.  Garlic will also regulate the overgrowth of candida albicans.

  • Garlic Helps With Heart Disease.

Garlic prevents and helps with conditions like high blood pressure and high cholesterol.

Garlic has been found to reduce the buildup and inhibit the formation of atherosclerotic plaque in our arteries.

Garlic extract supplements are proven to reduce high cholesterol levels and blood pressure in people with hypertension.

  • Garlic Is Used As Cancer Treatment.

The National Cancer Institute has reported that cancer incidence worldwide is lowest in the countries where garlic consumption is highest.

Garlic has been proven to increase protection and help against: breast, colon, lung, ovarian, prostate, esophageal and stomach cancer.

Organo-sulfur compounds from garlic have been found to be  effective against glioblastoma, a type of highly aggressive brain tumor.

Allicin from garlic may be useful as a cancer treatment.  According to one study, when garlic compounds were injected into a tumor cell, the reaction not only penetrated the cell but also killed it.

  • Garlic Is A Powerful Antioxidant.

The component of garlic, allicin, which causes the smell and familiar flavor, is an extremely effective antioxidant. As allicin digests in our body it produces a compound that goes after dangerous free radicals. This is another way how garlic protects us from cancer and suppresses chemically induced cancers.

How To Consume Garlic

The best way to eat garlic is to take a whole, fresh clove, chop it, smash it or press it, then wait around 15 minutes for the conversion (from alliin into the beneficial allicin) to occur, and then consume it. The active compound loses potency rapidly and can disappear completely within about an hour of chopping.
