Dear Tammy,

Garlic is a potent detoxifier and healer to the body. Because it is such a potent detoxifier, it can sometimes make you feel a little ill, queasy, nauseas, and many other symptoms. This is NOT an allergy; this is a side effect of detoxification. So your idea is correct, start with a small amount and work your way up to my suggested dosages, this will only take you 2 to 4 weeks at the most.

Dear Jan,

The above answer I gave Tammy is for you too, plus… the garlic in my products is not roasted, it is very raw, very organic and very potent. The reason you can tolerate the aged or roasted garlic is simply because it has very little potency, or none at all.

One of the most potent phytochemicals in garlic is allicin. Allicin is made when garlic is cut or crushed, by the chemical action of the fibrous cells mixing with the oil cell, an enzyme reaction. You could almost say that garlic doesn’t contain allicin, but it is made chemically when garlic is crushed.

Anyway, this potent phytochemical is also bound with garlic’s odor, so when anyone claims to have potent and active or medicinal odorless garlic, this is bullshit, not possible. Good, potent garlic is smelly garlic.

As far as your allergy, it is actually a sensitivity and a blessing. Garlic is a very special plant for you for your cleansing and detoxification.

So Jan, here is what I suggest. First, since your reaction sounds mainly digestive in nature, I suggest you start by taking my Intestinal Formula #1, which will really clean up and clean out your entire digestive tract. This formula also contains a mild amount of garlic, which you should tolerate just fine. A few weeks after starting this formula, I would then do my 5-Day BOWEL Detox. The next month, I would do my 5-Day LIVER Detox which also contains garlic, with the Liver and Gall Bladder Flush drink which also contains garlic. You may just have to slightly lower the amount of garlic that you put into your Liver Flush Drink, but maybe not. You may be fine by this time, let’s see what happens.

Remember, we are ALL allergic to toxic manmade substances like petrol chemicals and insecticides, but when a natural herb or food causes you some type of reaction, it is a cleanse, and your body, for whatever reason is more sensitive to this cleansing herb, and you have now just found something that is of particular use to you in your detoxification.

Start with a little, and take your time to work up to normal dosages, there is no hurry. Keep me informed.
