Now I’ve always considered myself a garlic aficionado, and have long believed in its nutritious and healthful qualities. I eat garlic almost every day. It’s widely considered a blood tonic and cleanser. And you can be sure that if Count Dracula came knocking, I would keep him at bay with a clove or two.

I was aware of many of the medicinal uses of garlic, such as the use, in alternative circles, of raw garlic as part of a parasite cleanse. Also, I wrote about garlic as one of my Top 10 Herbal / Natural Remedies For Colds And Flu.



However, not even a lifetime’s adoration of garlic bread and pasta sauce could possibly have prepared me for what follows: A list of uses for garlic that encompasses the weird, the wonderful and the downright spectacular. Road de-icer, splinter remover, hair loss remedy…?

On further reading it turns out that the use of garlic as a road de-icer is perhaps something of a false call: One winter in Iowa, a batch of garlic salt that had been declared unfit for consumption was donated to be used on roads – however in all likelihood it was the salt that was doing the de-icing!

That still leaves 19 good ones! Here then, without further ado, beyond pizza topping… beyond bane of ancient Transylvanian Counts… here is the list of the top 20 weird but amazing uses for garlic.

    My youngest son is allergic to bites by the bugs during the summer evenings. I had him start eating garlic cloves and he stopped getting bites. For a couple of years, his whole face would puff all up.

    Eating garlic is helpful with, arthritis, joint pain or any other kind of chronic body pain. My father is proof of that. His arthritis pain reduced including cholesterol and chest pain.

    My feet were covered with plantar warts that my Doctor were burning off. I was in constant pain and they kept coming back. I had a book on healing with garlic and it said to soak your feet in as hot a water that you could stand with about 6 large garlic cloves smashed. I did this every night for ten days. The tenth day they were completely gone and have never returned. My Doctor could not believe the results…

    One of my “at the first sign of a cold” responses: while I am waiting for 1/3 cup elderberries in 2 cups water to come to a boil for tea because I just had “one of those” sneezes, I peel and finely mince a clove of garlic, then chew it up as thoroughly as I can stand, knowing that more surface area is critical for absorption… after I swallow, I have a tablespoon of raw organic coconut oil ready, and eat that, helping to clear out the hot garlic oil and neutralize any discomfort. I never get colds. I do not let them get started. As Barney Fife would say “Nip it… IN the Bud!”

    When I was a kid we had a dog that biten our neighbor who entered in our backyard and as first aid before doctor treatment we rubbed the Part biten with cut garlic it said to help spread of rabies. No harm trying until proper medical attention is given.

    Once my brother had the worst gas ever and he started eating garlic cloves. Now his gas smells fine! Even when he poops it’s okay. It used to gag the cat sometimes too!
