Downsides Garlic

Some thiol-bearing compounds in garlic and onion and their relatives can cause acantholysis in vitro (Brenner et al., 1995) and possibly pemphigus in vivo. More than 5 cloves a day may induce flatulence and heartburn (Castleman, 1996) and 'thin blood' (people taking blood thinners may overthin their blood thereby). Some people are very allergic to garlic. Contraindicated in hyperthyroid (TRA) Commission E reports rare GI disturbances, allergic reactions, and change of odor...

Extracts Milk Thistle

Milk thistle regenerates injured liver cells (SKY). Silymarin, at 100 mg kg in rabbit diets, is reported to induce p450. Such data weakly suggest that milk thistle might detoxify (or inactivate) drugs detoxified by p450. Silymarin, the antihepatotoxic lignan, is hypolipidenic, lowering fatty deposits in the livers of experimental animals, and has been used successfully for Hepatosis B virus (PNC). Pre-treatment with silymarin and silybin gives 100 protection against mushroom poisoning in...

Extracts Garlic

Of the 120 new PubMed abstracts for garlic in the first quarter of 2005, some were disappointing. Iranian scientists (e.g., Jelodar et al., 2005) found, contrary to my expectations, that garlic, but not onion and fenugreek, is hypoglycemic in experimental rats. I think they should have also compared the mix of the three biblical herbs, anticipating synergy or additivism, all recommended in Persian folklore medicine as good for diabetes (X15738612). Bakri and Douglas (2005) extended the...

Faith Based Farmaceuticals Introduction

With the accelerating decline of my long-enjoyed good health, I lose faith more and more each year in the pharmaceutical firms of America. It is clear that they wield incredible and potentially corrupting power. I have little faith in the pharmaceutical firms' desire to see a healthy America. I see them promoting multiple-pills-a-day regimens, to be taken for life, and not necessarily promoting health. Their side effects sometimes outweigh any health advantages they offer. But I gain faith each...
