GARLIC AND APPLES

I still haven't thrown off this wretched respiratory infection, but my younger sister is visiting from Arizona and told me about garlic and apples. 

I'm pretty desperate, so am willing to try pretty much anything.

Apparently this worked for her once when she had pneumonia and two rounds of antibiotics didn't get rid of it. She also has friends who swear by it, and as I am desperate after six weeks I am willing to try pretty much anything. 

It's pretty simple. Slice up a clove of garlic and put it between two apple slices. Chew away making sure to bite into the garlic.


If it doesn't get rid of the infection, it will probably drive away my friends and family. 

My friend told me that if it doesn't work to tie it around my neck to ward off weirdos.


I'll let you know what happens and if I become ostracized.

  6. Wow--well---let us know if it works. I hope you are on something heavy duty to get rid of the infection though. Hope you have a good weekend and feel well enough to enjoy your sister's visit. xo Diana

    1. I have been through two heavy duty rounds of antibiotics, which really didn't help so I think it is viral.

  7. Hello Laura...So sorry to hear that you are sick. That is not fun. I sure hope the garlic and apple slices work. Don't know if I could do it, though. Whenever I eat anything with garlic in it, I run for the parsley. ha haha Take care and I sure hope you feel better soon. Susan

    1. I love cooked garlic, but I have to admit that the aw garlic is a bit much.

  8. Get some Potassium Iodide (not iodine, but IODIDE), usually can only get the strong stuff from a naturopath. It kills germs really well! I've had to do 3 rounds of antibiotics before, with walking pneumonia. Try also green olives stuffed with whole garlic cloves.. they are SO GOOD and lots of garlic too! Good luck.. hope you can kick this thing! Marilyn

  9. Not sure about the apples, but I have read that garlic is a natural antibiotic. BE WELL!

    1. I think the apples are meant to cut the bitterness of the garlic. I also put some raw garlic in my pasta.

  10. I'm so sorry you're still sick after all this time. Sounds viral if antibiotics haven't helped. Hopefully, some natural remedies such as what you're trying will do some good! Are you taking vitamin D regularly? And do you have an essential oil diffuser? Both these things can help, too.

  11. Garlic is an antibiotic. You may want to remember to drink lots of water to flush the toxins out. Other things to consider are taking a garlic enema - or garlic poultice on the bottom of your feet or over lungs to draw toxins out.
