Whole books have been written about garlic, an herb affectionately called “the stinking rose” in light of its numerous therapeutic benefits.
A member of the lily or Allium family, which also includes onions and leeks, garlic is rich in a variety of powerful sulfur-containing compounds includingthiosulfinates (an important example being allicin), sulfoxides (a well-studied example being alliin),volatile organosulfur compounds like diallyl sulfides, vinyldithiins, ajoene and its derivatives, and also water-soluble organosulfur compounds (inclucing S-allyl-L-cysteine).
Some of these compounds are largely responsible for garlic’s characteristically pungent odor, and they are also the source of documented health benefits.
The following article is about a woman who discovered a very effective natural remedy for her persistent vaginal infection. To her surprise she found it where she least expected. After discovering that she had developed a vaginal infection she went to her gynecologist for a checkup.
As she suspected it was indeed an infection for which the doctor prescribed medications and some creams and ointments. The infection started to withdraw and the woman was relieved thinking it will be the end of it, especially since she wasn’t so thrilled at the thought of having to return to the gynecologist’s office.
Unfortunately after a month or so, the infection reappeared again and the situation got even worse. She decided to try a more natural approach this time and started looking up possible remedies online.
In one article she read about a woman with a similar if not worse, problem who said that she found the cure in garlic. Garlic in the vagina was a bit too invasive at first so she dismissed this possibility and looked further.
A few days went by and the infection was getting worse, nothing was helping. Then she remembered the garlic remedy and decided to give it a try. To her surprise she immediately started feeling better and the symptoms started subsiding. Soon the infection was completely gone, never to return again.
Now she recommends this remedy to all women who suffer from vaginal infections and advises girls to take a shower right after sexual intercourse to avoid infections in the first place.
Here’s how you can prepare this remedy yourself:
Take a garlic clove, peel it and pull a thread through the center, securing it tightly so that the thread can not be untied. Insert the clove in your vagina and change it every 8-12 hours. Repeat the procedure until the infection is completely gone, it may take a few days depending on how severe an infection it is.
