The human body has a unique defense system called the immune system. The task of immune system is to fight germs and protect the body from infections and diseases. The immune system can sometimes lead to allergic reactions which are nothing but false alarms in most of the cases. Sneezing, swelling, runny nose, itching, asthma or rashes are few of the symptoms that can be caused by allergies. Allergies can be diagnosed by skin and blood tests. Allergy shots, medicines and avoidance of allergens are few of the treatments. Steroid shot for allergies is one such treatment for allergic reactions. For those who don’t know, steroids are man-made medications with anabolic-androgenic steroids (a male sex hormone) and anti-inflammatory corticosteroids as its main types.
Hospitals around the world have concurrently reported a dramatic spike in the incidence & virulence of Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus since 2000. In the United States in particular, ‘ Since 2000, several reports have documented the presence of MRSA infections in previously unaffected outpatient populations…a dramatic shift in the microbial flora of soft tissue infections has occurred recently in the United States. Popovich et al. in 2008 reported data from 2000-2006 in Chicago’s Stroger Hospital/Rush University Medical Center that showed a stable rate of hospital acquired strains of MRSA infections, but a rapidly increasing rate of community acquired strains of MRSA seen in the hospital from 24% between January 2000 and June 2003 to 49% between July 2003 and December 2006. ‘
Just stepping in to add a suggestion for those who mentioned how taking this on an empty stomach can give you a bad digestive upset. The first day I took this that is what happened to me – I swallowed a spoonful and immediately was bent double with cramps. Garlic is extremely potent. I quickly ate, which saved me from a number of hours of hell, and tried again the next morning but drank a glass of water with it to dilute. This works perfectly for me and I don’t experience any upset. I do chew the mixture to break down the chunks of crushed garlic as this seems the most sensible to me for maximal nutritional benefit.
