The best insurance in the world against the "predicted coming plagues" and "killing diseases" is to have the body in a good healthy condition. Disease germs are merely scavengers and can only live on toxins, mucus and residue from junk foods. They cannot and will not be damage healthy cell structure. Therein lies the key! Have a healthy, clean body and disease germs will by-pass you--wanting nothing to do with your body, because it would be "obnoxiously clean" (in their language) and no filth for them to live on.
If the plague, or some other epidemic hits before you are in a good healthy condition, it is good to have an aid for a fast cleaning.
While lecturing in Snowflake, Arizona one night, one of the group asked if we had an Super Garlic Immune formula, and I was prompted to give them a "certain combination" of herbs to use.
The people there were very impressed to go right to work and prepare this liquid, having it read for use. We had told them that plagues come at unexpected times and it could be tomorrow or maybe even years away, but expect the unexpected and be ready now. If the formula was still unused, from "no need" years later, we could all be happy but "TIS BETTER SAFE THAN SORRY".
These good people made it up in gallon lots and had it on hand. Months later while speaking in Tucson, Arizona, someone asked for the "Super Garlic Immune remedy." I was surprised and asked where they had heard of it, as we had only given it out once. We were informed that a plague-like condition or flu had hit the Snowflake area and when other aids failed, this combination of herbs in liquid form performed its job with amazing speed.
At our next series of lectures in Snowflake, some time later, we heard one testimony after another about the many different types of ailments that were given quick relief by using this formula. The formula has now spread in many areas from coast to coast and is being used with good results. A man picked us up at an airport on the west coast a short time ago, and on the floor of his car was a bottle with liquid in it. When asked what it was he said, "oh, that's your Super Garlic Immune remedy, we never travel without it as it works good on about any sickness that comes up while we are traveling. We are also never without a bottle of it at home."
Because of the wonders we have told you about in this article of the greatness of garlic, it is easy to see how it fits in this formula. Drop a culture of almost any known disease germ into "apple juice" or "apple cider vinegar" an it will die immediately. The ingredients found in "black walnut" are one of the few-known herbal-destroyers of fungus. Marshmallow is the enemy of gangrene and peritonitis. It is a "softening emollient" that will aid in removal of the inorganic deposits broken up by the "solvent" gravel root. Wormwood relieves pain and kills pin-worms and other unwanted parasites, etc. Oak bark tones and firms up the cells in the muscles, cartilage, and flesh. It is also an aid in rebuilding the circulatory system and feeding it. Scullcap is one of the finest nerve repairing and rebuilding aids. It works especially well on the spinal cord--the trunkline for health to the entire body. Comfrey is the cell-proliferant that causes the good cells to multiply rapidly and push out the waste and dead-cell structure, being supplied with the wonderful allantoin. Lobelia is the Lord's great catalyst to combine the herbal entities to a "smoothly-operating whole."
Garlic is a handy herb that will grow right in your own yard, taking very little space, but which should be in everybody's yard. Any time of the year it is needed, one can go out and dig up the bulb. This can be done in spring, summer, or fall, in an emergency, but the best harvest time is autumn, when the leaves have died down. After shaking off the dirt, the bulbs can be put into a mesh bag and hung in the shade where the cool air can circulate through the bulbs.
The single buttons or cloves, that make up the bulb, can be planted in the fall and by going through the winter will come up the following year in the form of a bulb, with a number of cloves or buttons. When planted in the spring, they will generally be just a larger button by fall and not become a bulb. Some people will put the garlic buttons into the refrigerator (not freezer) and keep cold for a few weeks, bring them out into room temperature for several weeks, and repeat this process several times. Thus, the garlic now believes it has gone through several winters and it mature enough to develop from a clove into a bulb. Rather sneaky we would say, but if it works, fine!
Garlic can be planted around rose bushes and other aphid infested plants and the aphids will disappear. Gardeners have reported to us that they plant garlic between the rows of cauliflower, tomatoes, etc., and the garlic will discourage plant-destroying bugs, cut worms, etc. Here "you can have your cake and eat it too" for you can get the value of garden-assistance from this herb during the growing season, and then thin them out in the fall to use as a food and a healing herb during the winter.
The reason for garlic's miraculous type of healing is in its creation, and this will be explained in more detail further along in this article. Briefly now, this is what happens: The garlic clove contains a very high amount of sulphur; sulphur is one of the best minerals to be used as an oxygen carrier. Oxygen is the breath of life and sulphur will carry the oxygen in the body directly to the infected area. Germs cannot live in a good supply of oxygen, therefore, the infection is cleared quickly. This is an organic wonder, so garlic may be termed 'a wonder herb'.
Medical science discovered that sulphur caused this rapid healing, so in World War II, flowers of sulphur (an inorganic mined-mineral) was substituted for the garlic. The army used sulfa for practically every ailment from "falling hair to fallen arches."
Wonderful results were reported to us and we were told to use it in ever increasing amounts.
The difference in the healings of the garlic and the inorganic, manmade remedies is that garlic does its job and the excess of the organic materials not being used in healing the infection is easily passed as harmless vegetable fiber from the body. No harm and certainly nothing but good could result from using this powerful, yet harmless, herb. But, with the man-made sulfa drug we used, (this 'wonder drug' healing or the infection), the inorganic flowers of sulphur remained in the body. This inorganic mineral eventually combined with the urine and formed a substance that cut up the urinary tract, causing bed wetters. Many soldiers and other servicemen were given medical discharges, because of "bed wetting". This habit was acquired while in the service after the use of sulfa drugs. It is a well-known fact that too much sulfa drug has also caused other problems. The sulphur in the garlic will assist in healing the urinary tract after its infection-clearing job, instead of damaging it.
Following are various other uses of garlic. Many people have been helped in ridding the body of worms by inserting a peeled button of garlic as high as possible into the rectum. Do this just before retiring at night and it will come out with the first bowel movement in the morning. (This is also a fine aid in adjusting high blood pressure and low blood pressure). Many mothers find it easier to insert the peeled button of garlic (into the child's rectum) after the child is asleep at night.
Here is a very successful routine for removal of these unwanted growths called moles, or warts. Take a button of garlic, slice or cut in two, and placed the cup area over a wart of mole. Tape it on, and as it dries out put a fresh piece. Many users have reported good results.
Massage painful joints and areas with Oil of Garlic, massage it thoroughly. Massage in thoroughly oil of garlic a number of times a day for rough hands.
To make oil of garlic place chopped or grated garlic in a bottle, glass servicing dish or baking dish, (an inch or more of the garlic), and cover with olive oil so that the oil is a half inch or so above the garlic. Keep in a warm place or in the sun two to three days. Strain with muslin or any good cotton material (no synthetics) and bottle the oil. Keep in a cool place.
I remember one time we were called out to a house in the wee hours of the morning. This call was to see a little boy, under the age of two years, that had double pneumonia. The physician on the case had informed the parents that nothing more could be done and he would come back in the morning to sign the child's death certificate. Seeing as it was well under forty degrees below zero and nearly fifty miles from ambulance service, the parents were told that the boy, if taken by car to a hospital, would surely die. These parents tried to get other doctors, but at that time of night, and in such a remote area, no one would offer help. A friend told them about us, then living in Evanston, Wyoming, and to try to call us. Having been told of the boy's condition we went expecting to give him the cold-sheet treatment. Upon arriving there we found that the plumbing was frozen and there was not running water in the house. We found enough in the toilet tank above the bowl to give the little chap an enema. We were not able to give the cold sheet treatment (no water) so only the garlic paste was made up and applied. This was done after a complete massage of the body and the feet. After oiling the feet up to the ankles, thoroughly, and massaging the olive oil in well, a half-inch thickness of the garlic paste was applied to the soles of his feet. (This is put on only the soles and not up onto the sides). Then gauze was placed over to cover the paste, bandages to hold it into place, and a loose white cotton sock was pulled over the bandages to hold them securely.
Garlic paste is made by taking freshly peeled buttons of garlic and garlic about half and half with Vaseline. This amount can vary, according to the toughness of the feet, more Vaseline for tender feet, less for thicker skin. Many of the health minded readers will be shocked by our using a low-vibration ointment like Vaseline instead of using anhydrous lanolin or some lighter more organic type. The reasoning for this is that the lighter type ointments will penetrate more quickly into the skin, but the Vaseline will hold the garlic on the ointment form. This will also keep the garlic from blistering as easily. (A garlic blister looks bad, but does not hurt and heals back quickly.) The little boy was running an extremely high fever and was delirious when he was covered and put back into bed. (This was well after 2:00 a.m.). We assured the parents the child would be all right and would get well. A few days later we were called again by these parents. They told us that the doctor came back to sign the death certificate that next morning, but the little boy was sitting in his high chair, drinking some juice and breathing normally as if nothing had happened the night before. The doctor became so angry and demanded to know the name of the other doctor who had taken over the case before it had been released by him. He wanted a hearing by "the board" to have the other doctor thrown out of practice for going "against procedure" by taking over a case without written release. The parents asked if his "release" was the death of their child? He probably changed his mind because we were not brought before a hearing.
I had forgotten this case until nearly twenty years had passed. One evening, after a lecture in another state, a fine-looking young fellow in his early twenties came up to the podium and shook my hand vigorously, saying he had always wanted to meet me. His mother had told him of our long trip in sub-zero weather at night to their house, of using the natural methods on, and saving his life. He stated that he enjoyed living so much he had been looking forward to meeting me.
That paid off for a cold night out on a house call by far more than the small fee that was charged.
