Garlic to the Defense Worldwide

by Paul Bergner from “Healing Power of Garlic”

Garlic is effective in combating and clearing two classes of substances which compromise health and defense: micro-organisms and chemical toxins.

Garlic kills or inhibits these bacteria. viruses. fungi. mold. and parasites:

  • Aspergillus niger and Parasiticus
  • Mycobacterium tuberculosis
  • Candida albicans
  • Pneumocystis
  • Carinii
  • Proteus vulgaris
  • Cryptosporidium
  • Pseudomonas
  • E. Coli
  • Salmonella
  • Herpes Simplex virus 1 and 2
  • Shigella dysenteriae
  • Human Cytomeglalovirus (HCMV)
  • Staphlococcus aureus
  • Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV)
  • Streptococcus faecalis
  • Human Rhinovirus Type 2
  • Toxoplasma gondii
  • Influenza B

Active ingredients of garlic include a variety of sulfur compounds, as well as Vitamin E and selenium.



Where dysentery is rampant, it was noted in labs that a water extract of garlic killed all four strains of bacteria that caused dysentery. Infected rabbits with shigella flexneri, were given garlic extract and within 1 hour the blood serum of rabbits showed activity against bacteria, with no harm to the animals.


Tested antifungal activity of garlic for cryptococcal meningitis in humans. Cerebrospinal fluid found in patients given garlic had activity against crypotcoccal yeast, systematically, with no side effect.

United States

Garlic is effective against bacteria notorious for developing resistant strains to antibiotics, such as staphlococcus, mycobacterium, salmonella, and proteus. Antibiotics are routinely and improperly given for viral infections, such as flu, colds and pneumonia. Garlic or its constituents will directly kill influenza, herrpes, vesicular stomatitis virus (responsible for cold sores, and human cytomeglalovirus – a common source of secondary infection in HIV). This results from the direct antiviral effects of garlic, and in part to the stimulation of the hepatic and immune systems. One-half clove of fresh garlic (1.8 grams) activated natural killer T-cells.

Dr. Abdullah at Akbar Clinic, Panama City, Florida gave AIDS patients 2 cloves of garlic daily to 10 patients for 6 weeks, and 4 cloves daily for another 6 weeks. Three subjects dropped out. Of the 7 finishers, all, who had depressed killer cell activity, showed normal natural killer T-cell activity by the end of the trial. Their opportunistic infections, chronic diarrhea, Candida, herpes, and chronic sinus infection all improved.

Garlic and Cancer

The National Cancer Institute (NCI) and the American Cancer Society (ACS) jointly published the antitumor effects of garlic based upon population studies in China, Italy, and the US In 1991, the NCI launched a 5-year Designer Foods Program using garlic, citrus fruit, flax, licorice root, and parsley. They planned to compound these into cancer preventive foods. Herbert Pierson, NCI program director said garlic is the food with the greatest cancer preventing potential.

Raw garlic is the most potent – heat minimizes antibiotic effects. Deodorized garlic has little direct antibiotic effect, though other medicinal benefits remain.

To dose with garlic, enjoy guacamole, pesto, garlic-wine or vinegar (steeped overnight), garlic honey (cough syrup), and garlic vegetable juice (1-3 cloves in 8 oz. of fresh juice).
