By Kirsten Cowart

Garlic is one of my favorite ingredients that I use almost daily. Not only does it have an incredible flavor, but it also helps your immune system in priceless ways. Garlic is easy to grow and is so versatile, that it is used all over the world.

Garlic In Medicine

Along with being a great addition to cooking, garlic can also be made into an essential oil. It is PACKED with powerful ingredients such as vitamins A, B and C, phosphorus, magnesium, selenium, potassium and sulfur.

Garlic helps your body produce white blood cells, which is one of your body’s main defense mechanisms against immune threats such as colds, flus, infections, diseases and sore throats. It ultimately aids in digestion.

Garlic is a super antibiotic and can even tackle superbugs that have grown resistant to prescription antibiotics. Parasitic worms that are in both humans and animals have long been treated with garlic. Garlic can also help with circulatory issues by lowering your blood sugar levels and helping with type 2 diabetes.

Garlic Warnings

Garlic is a spice and like other spices, it can warm the system if you have too much. People with stomach issues such as acid reflux need to be cautious. Make sure you have an alkaline meal or take a capful of apple cider vinegar that is diluted in a shot of water to help kill your acid reflux quickly and effectively.

Homemade Garlic Earache oil
 
This particular recipe has been handed down for generations and we want to make sure your family has it for years to come. This recipe is for ear infections caused by colds and respiratory infections (NOT swimmer's ear). The garlic fights the infection and the soothing warm oil helps to relieve the pain. Of course, if the ear infection doesn’t improve with the garlic oil within 24 hours, or if it gets worse, then a trip to your family health-care provider is in order. Make sure to be quick about it and don’t let ear infections go untreated, as they can result in a perforated eardrum and permanent hearing loss.
Ingredients
  • 1-2 cloves of garlic, sliced and peeled
  • 2 tbsp of olive oil
Instructions
  1. Combine the garlic and olive oil in the top of a double boiler and allow to warm over low heat for 10-15 minutes, or until your oil smells strongly of garlic.
  2. Next you will need a stainless-steel strainer lined with cheesecloth to strain out all of the garlic from the oil. Ensure that you strain very well, leaving no garlic pieces, no matter how tiny they may be.
  3. Pour the strained oil into preferably a small glass dropper bottle and make sure to store in a cool pantry or closet, where you it be able to keep for several weeks (keeps longer if you refrigerate it, for at least several months).

How To Use Your New Oil

Each time you have need for this oil, it needs to be warmed up; just place your dropper bottle into a pan of hot water until the oil is about the warmth of mother’s milk. Be sure the oil is warm and not hot. If you are in doubt, do a test drop in your own ear.

Dispense a dropperful of the now warm garlic oil down each ear. The ear canals are connected and the infection has a tendency to move back and forth, so always make sure to treat both ears. If possible, try to hold a warm, dry cloth over your ears after applying the oil and/or even gently massage around your ears.

You will want to repeat this technique every 30 minutes, or as needed until your pain levels subside.

What Our Clients Say*

During my FitLife transformation, I lost 70 pounds! That's why I signed up for the protocol, but the most exciting result is that I found ME in the process. I had been hiding under a pile of pounds, self-doubt, and grief! FitLife changed my life and I knew I had to share it with others.

-Lynne, Longwood FL

I started with Fitlife back in 2011-2012…I wrote into Fitlife asking for an extreme amount of help. I was 300 pounds, with high cholesterol, and Drew helped me transform my life. I lost over 130 pounds and I no longer have high cholesterol. Not only did I lose weight, so did my husband, who lost over 70 pounds!
