Garlic is Helping Me!!! Must read this :angel:

So I had a lap chole 2 months ago this week.

I never had diarrhea, I've no pain, I poop regularly.... my one problem since the surgery has been chronic gas/bloating, with really smelly farts. It was awful.

I take peppermint-oil pills. Then about 2 weeks ago, I started taking a probiotic, and that helped, but not totally. My farting frequency decreased, but it was still there, along w/ the gas/bloating.

This past week, I just started taking 2 raw garlic cloves (quartered) a night w/ my probiotic, and, boy, do I feel good. I cannot even believe it. No more bloating, no more gas, hardly any farting.

So, I just wanted to pass this along. Could it be the probiotics just took a while to kick in? Maybe.

Is my body just healing on my own, and my supplements have done nothing? I dunno.

All I do know, coincidence or not, is that since I started w/ the garlic, I'm so much better--and I was miserable, depressed and felt hopeless.

Anyway, I hope this helps some of you out there. And I hope I continue to do well.

To your health.

Re: Garlic is Helping Me!!! Must read this :angel:

The use of garlic has long been used to aid in yeast/candida problems. But most don't use raw garlic because it causes breath to smell like garlic-- they use capsules that are not as effective.

I am glad it helps you.

Thanks for reminding us that natural is better!!

Thanks for posting...

I was going to ask whether or not using tablets or capsules (say from a health food store) would be just as effective? Anyone else..?
