Garlic -- For Healthy Cholesterol and Immune Function

Garlic has been used throughout history virtually all over the world as a medicine. Its use predates written history. Sanskrit records document the use of garlic remedies to approximately 5,000 years ago, while the Chinese have been using it for at least 3,000 years.The Codex Ebers, an Egyptian medical papyrus dating to about 1,550 B.C., mentions garlic as an effective remedy for a variety of ailments, including high blood pressure, headache, bites, worms, and tumors. Hippocrates, Aristotle and Pliny cited numerous therapeutic uses for garlic. Stories, verse, and folklore (such as its alleged ability to ward off vampires) also give historical documentation to the healing power of garlic. Sir John Harrington in The Englishman's Doctor, written in 1609, summarized garlic's virtues and faults:

Garlic then have power to save from death
Bear with it though it maketh unsavory breath,
And scorn not garlic like some that think
It only maketh men wink and drink and stink.

Another favorite saying about garlic is “Eat garlic and gain your health, but lose your friends.” Fortunately, there are now commercial preparations that provide all of the health benefits of garlic without the social consequences.

February is Heart Disease Awareness Month

Every second of every minute of your life, your heart is going to beat. The force of this vital pump pushes blood, carrying its payload of oxygen and nutrients, to every one of your tissues and organs and the cells that comprise them. Ultimately, the blood returns to the heart, where the process repeats. Each day the human heart beats about 100,000 times and pumps up to 5,000 gallons of fluid. In an average lifetime, the heart will beat 2.5 billion times and pump 146 million gallons of blood. That’s a lot of work! The function of the heart is absolutely critical to every other part of your body – including your brain. Everything functions better when the heart works as it should. Unfortunately, millions of people operate at a deficit and are at risk of dying too soon from damage to the heart and blood vessels. Cardiovascular diseases – heart attacks and strokes – are the leading cause of premature death in this country, accounting for more than 30% of all deaths in the United States. Here’s the very good news: Heart disease can be prevented. What’s more, prevention doesn’t require costly drugs or dangerous medical procedures. You can tune up your heart through simple but effective natural methods – diet, lifestyle, attitude, and proper supplementation. For natural approaches to promoting heart health, please consult The Encyclopedia of Natural Medicine.
