The Amazingness of Garlic
Happy National Garlic Day! Garlic is one of the few herbs that was and still is used in 3 great healing systems of the world—Ayurveda, Traditional Chinese Medicine, and Traditional European Medicine.
Garlic this Spring
Early spring is when the last cold of the season goes around as the temperature changes so use garlic and spicy herbs to move things up and out, cleanse the stagnation from the winter to cleanse the system and make room for all the energy of summer!
Garlic is hot, opens the sinuses, has a heavy anti-bacterial/viral/fungal component which makes it great for clearing dampness (like yeast infections) and great for helping the immune system for protecting itself from viral load (cold and flu season).
As we go through changes in season from spring to summer and people are traveling and being exposed to bacterial and viral infection it is great to eat a lot of garlic!
