We have been focusing on news about Big Pharma and the Medical Establishment, but it’s time to get back to basics. The real goal is to cheaply, safely, effectively help people get rid of cancer.  On that note, while doing some searches online, I found some anecdotal accounts of people getting rid of their cancer and/or tumors with the use of garlic.  It looked promising.  We know that garlic is a very powerful herb. You can tell that just by its extremely pungent odor.

Garlic has a number of interesting properties.  It has been used as a food and medicine for thousands of years.  It has been found to have antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal activity.  It is also claimed that it is good for preventing heart disease. It is said to prevent certain types of cancer. Garlic cloves have been used as a treatment for infections, digestive disorders, and fungal infections.  Raw garlic is the most potent form. Cooking tends to reduce its effectiveness. The most powerful component of garlic is a molecule called allicin.

Some contraindications of the use of garlic include use along with some prescription drugs, such as warfarin, antiplatelets, saquinavir, antihypertensives, hypoglycemic drugs, calcium channel blockers, and the quinolone family of antibiotics like Cipro. The side effects of long-term garlic supplementation , if they exist, are not known. No long-term FDA-approved study on garlic has been performed to date.

Ok, that’s some good background information on garlic.  One protocol that I found online was given by a man (Barry from Blountville, Tennessee) who claimed that he had been diagnosed with cancer that had metastasized into his lymph nodes.  He said that his daughter told him to take a clove of garlic, but he was not familiar with garlic. So he took an entire bulb of garlic instead of a clove!  He found that taking this amount of garlic made his tumors go away, not once but three times.  I found this account on a blog, and it is also associated with a video on YouTube.  The man claims that he has been alive, cancer-free, for 14 years since this incident occurred.

His protocol is simple: you just eat a bulb of garlic a day until you get the results you are seeking. Barry claims that he got rid of the cancer in his armpit and his stomach by eating a bulb of garlic a day. He said that he ate about one half of the bulb, twice a day. He says that the last time he had a cancerous growth on his eye.  Instead of eating the garlic, he cut a sliver of the garlic and taped it to the affected area. He said that it did burn for about 4-5 hours, but that the garlic had turned the growth into a blister, and that he later had a big black eye. But the good part is that the growth was gone.

The web site has a number of anecdotal testimonials from people using garlic, and other natural substances to cure their cancer.  It’s not backed by rigorous scientific studies, but I hope that people realize that orthodox scientists and medical professionals are strongly dissuaded from studying natural substances as cures or treatments for disease.  The reasons for this are covered in other articles that we have written.  The bottom line is that if you really want a cure for cancer, you’re probably never going to get it from your local board-certified oncologist or physician. If they use any treatment protocols that are outside of orthodox medical treatments, they can be sued, sanctioned, and/or have their medical license revoked.

I know that some scientific types will be aghast at this report. But I had to learn to look beyond what passes for ‘empirical’ data in science. Many times, this data is not as ‘empirical’ as you would think. That’s not to totally discount the value of scientific research.  But when you have powerful organizations and people working hard to protect their ‘turf’, they will do extraordinary things to accomplish this. There are literally billions of dollars at stake. I see very few scientists and medical professionals challenging the biases in orthodox medicine and science.

The bottom line is that it doesn’t cost much to give garlic a try. If it works, excellent! If it doesn’t, there are very few, if any, negative effects from this. I think that it is at least worth a try. Please share your thoughts below!
