Warnings And Side-Effects Of Garlic

You may be allergic to garlic if you experience gastrointestinal discomfort, heartburn, irritable bowel, diarrhea, sweating, dizziness, have difficulties breathing or other allergic reactions after eating it. It would be best to avoid this food and/or stop taking garlic supplements.

Since recently, those who suffer from lupus have been given the recommendation to strike garlic from their meals. It is said that regular intake of this food may cause lupus flare-ups and you would do well to ask your doctor about it.

Garlic and garlic supplements have an anti-clothing and blood-thinning effect and increases the risk of bleeding. Those who are about to have surgery or are taking anti-coagulant drugs would also do wisely to ask their physician before supplementing with or eating large quantities of garlic on a regular basis.

To reap all the health benefits fresh garlic is the route to go. You can buy it in stores throughout the year and it does not need to be refrigerated. Simply store it in a dark, cool place. Garlic in oil however is best kept in the fridge since keeping it at room temperature can result in botulism.

When you like the taste of garlic and consume it regularly, you are well aware of the effects it has on your breath and your perspiration. The specific odor can not be neglected, but it significantly helps your breath by drinking milk while eating garlic flavored dishes.

Many dishes taste better when adding garlic. Although you may not like the effects and smells after eating it, it does have lots of properties which are beneficial to our health. When you don't fall into one of the risk categories, the least you can do is try it.

You most certainly are not at risk listening to and living by God's word. On the contrary; you could be at risk if you don't. One of the side-effects is that you will encounter blessings galore, but I don't think anyone would mind receiving those! :-)

Psalm 34:8
Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good; Blessed is the man who trusts in Him!

No, not yet, but it is in the forecast for today and tomorrow. They are actually warning for a winter storm here which might be the worst one since the 1800s. We just pray the power won't go out!

We are looking forward to the snow. That is going to be sooooo cool. Grin.

God's Grace.

Hahaha, lieve zus, you are just as excited as I am. Unfortunately, we have to wait till late this afternoon before we may see any snow in the southern part.

That's okay; good things happen to those who wait. Grin.

God's Grace.

Well, no snow ball fights, maybe an iceman, but lots of pics for sure.

It is white outside, but that is not due to snow. We didn't get any snow, just a lot of sleet. Sigh.

It is pretty though. :-)

God's Grace.
