More than 30,000,000 people in the US and 200 million worldwide have a Thyroid Disorder Most affected are women. Some estimates are over 50 million in US and over 200 million worldwide, and growing.

Estimates vary widely as most patients are misdiagnosed or undiagnosed because doctors don't know what they are looking for.

Thyroid disease is also an autoimmune disease. This means that over 27 million people have one or more of the over 105 known autoimmune diseases.

Eat Garlic for Better Health

Bob & Wendy from Bobba-Mike's Garlic Farm in Ohio. They've been growing hardneck garlic for the past eighteen years. They cultivate 38 different strains of organically grown gourmet garlic. Go to http://www.garlicfarm.com/ and order yours!

Garlic is a species of the onion family. Its close relatives include the onion, shallot, leek, and chive, all extremely good for you!

ANTIOXIDANT  and OTHER NUTRIENTS

Health benefits of garlic have been studied for a long time. They are abundant in antioxidant nutrients.

Garlic also contains enzymes, calcium, copper, iron, manganese, phosphorus, potassium and selenium. Vitamins in garlic include vitamin A, vitamin B1 (thiamine), vitamin B2 (riboflavin), vitamin B6 and vitamin C.

Garlic contains dozens of bioflavonoids, more than 80 sulfur-containing compounds, and many other beneficial compounds that have never been identified.  

GARLIC IS A HELPER TO OTHER ANTIOXIDANTS

Garlic gives other antioxidants a boost because it’s rich in selenium. It therefore helps to boost the effectiveness of the network antioxidants — vitamin C, vitamin E, glutathione, lipoic acid and coenzyme Q-10. Selenium packs a big punch for something categorized as a micronutrient.

    Hi,

    I have a sensitivity to sulfer drugs. Since Garlic has something to do with sulfer, I am wondering if it something I should avoid becasue of my sensitivity to sulfer. I have used garlic in the past and seem to recall it having some adverse effect but cannot recall exactly what it was or how it effected me. I have a huge sensitivity to the nighshades and avoid them entirely, although I keep learning more and more about the “hidden” nighshades such as turmeric in many processed foods as well as capsasin and NSAID medicines.

    Thanks for your great info

      What I do know is that the stronger the taste of the garlic, the more sulfur content it has and therefore the greater are the medicinal benefits. Organic garlic tends to have a stronger but finer flavor than conventionally produced garlic, suggesting a higher sulfur content.

      However, I’m not sure if you really mean “sulfur” drugs or “Sulfa drugs” So the may be two different things.

      Sulfa drugs, one of the sulfonamides, are the sulfa-related antibiotics which are used to treat bacterial and some fungal infections.

      The sulfa family of drugs includes sulfadiazine, sulfamethizole (brand name: Thiosulfil Forte), sulfamethoxazole (Gantanol), sulfasalazine (Azulfidine), sulfisoxazole (Gantrisin), and various high-strength combinations of three sulfonamides.

      Sulfa drugs kill bacteria and fungi by interfering with their metabolism. They were the “wonder drugs” before penicillin and are still used today. Because sulfa drugs concentrate in the urine before being excreted, treating urinary tract infections is one of their most common uses. Sulfa drugs can have a number of interactions with prescription and over-the-counter drugs (including PABA sunscreens), and are not appropriate for people with some health conditions.

      You might check with your doctor and see if they are the same or not.
