I am a big fan of natural remedies to health problems before pharm is used. Not opposed to meds, just dont like over doing them. I was wondering about the supposed anti-bacterial and anti fungal properties of garlic. You hear in various news sources about how Garlic is nature's medicine, etc... Would the antibacterial/fungal properties of Garlic, taken raw orally. (eaten lol) be comparable to any sort of Pharamaceutical approach? Or is it just too weak to compare? as an aside, I have seen the power of garlic to kill bacteria via some lab experiments in college, so I am not totally convinced either way on this.
