It’s nice to see you back inside the well!
My fiance doesn’t want to sit close to me right now, and it might be because I smell like garlic and onion. Personally, I love the aromatic quality of these two ingredients, but it’s not everyone’s cup of tea. I eat garlic and onion pretty often, and the reason I reek today is because I’m not feeling that great.
While driving away my loved ones with my breath won’t help me feel better, garlic and onion have some bad ass infection fighting properties can help restore my health. Jon Barron, author of Lessons from The Miracle Doctors, describes the healing properties of garlic and onion as follows:
“Garlic is one of the best infection fighters available for both bacterial and viral infections. It is a natural antibiotic that does not appear to create resistant bacteria strains. In addition, fresh garlic extract has been shown to be virucidal to many viruses.
Garlic possesses the ability to stimulate the immune system. It can stimulate the activity of the macrophages (white blood cells), which engulf foreign organisms, such as: viruses, bacteria, and yeast. Furthermore, garlic increases the activity of the T-helper cells (immune cells which are central to the activity of the entire immune system). Garlic may be particularly effective in treating upper respiratory viral infections due to its immune-enhancing properties and its ability to clear mucous from the lungs.
It destroys and/or inhibits various bacteria and fungi, with an antibacterial action equivalent to 1% penicillin. Garlic is effective against strep, staph, and even anthrax bacteria.
Everything that’s been said about Garlic can be said about onion. Onions and garlic share many of the same powerful sulfur bearing compounds that work so effectively as anti-viral and anti-bacterial agents.”
Thanks garlic and onion! Read the whole article on the Baseline of Health Foundation’s site here.
Also, I wanted to take some time to catch up on the #ishineyoushine challenge (I missed yesterday).
Yesterday’s challenge was to identify our superpower. For this challenge I have to recognize the hope that I always feel, even when I’m in a deep dark pit of sadness. This sense that all is well, no matter how bad things have seemed, has helped me overcome many obstacles and contributes greatly to my personal evolution. Thanks hope!!
Today’s challenge is to share the best compliment someone has given us lately. I got an awesome bundle of compliments from my good friend the other day while we were eating onion rings and triple layer cake at a diner near my home. She pointed out a lot of positive characteristics she perceives me to possess, and it was really wonderful to hear, because sometimes it’s easy to not give ourselves credit or recognize our positive attributes.
Thanks for reading and enjoy this video of the compliment guys!
