Book Description
From the Jacket :

Healing traditions across all civilizations have recognized garlic as a natural "wonder drug" for thousands of years. Latest medical research indicates garlic may prevent and even reverse high blood pressure, heart diseases, and cancer, as well as a host of other serious health problems. In fact, a recent head-to-head comparison proved garlic just as effective as the leading cholesterol-reducing drug in lowering cholesterol levels.

This comprehensive book describes exactly how to use garlic as a versatile, powerful, and effective medicine for a variety of common illness.

  • Prevent Cancer
  • Reverse high blood pressure
  • Overcome fatigue
  • Prepare healing garlic oil, ear drops, poultices, syrups, ointments, and other garlic treatment
  • Lower your cholesterol level
  • Boost your immune system
  • Resist colds and flus
And, as the recent medical research suggests, the potent free radical-destroying substances in garlic slow down the ageing process.
