Cloves on Loaves

This is a simple, but stinky, life saver. This week I started to feel the flu coming on, but I was determined to not let it get me, so I turned to my dad's tried and true method. He has always told me to load up on garlic when I feel the aches and pains coming on, and I do.....I use the sweet little garlic pills, no after taste and no stink....and I still get sick.

This time I was feeling bold so I mashed 5 cloves of garlic on to 2 pieces of toast with butter and chomped them down, and went to bed.

It worked. The next morning I was a little aromatic, but I felt so good; like miracle good. I think the trick is to eat it as soon as you feel yourself getting sick and lay it on! Too much garlic can lead to an upset stomach, so take it a few cloves at a time, and I think a little bread and milk help soothe as it goes down.

As an added bonus, I haven't had any trouble with vampires this week either....

I love that line about waking up a little "aromatic." But it's worth it to wake up healthy and strong! Thanks for the natural remedy!
