Have severe B12 deficiency that built up for awhile. Also have anemia. (These are apparently very common with SIBO. Going to hopefully get tested in the next day or two.) Just tried garlic soaked in water for at least 15 minutes. 2 pieces... (more)
One day, I had incidentally removed these foods from my diet and had experienced a relief of itchy red skin on my hands and feet. These had always been part of my daily diet. Is it preposterous to think that the antimicrobial effects could have... (more)
I'm in a new job that involves a lot of all-day meetings with catered lunches. I'm new to the role and it's a corporate environment so I'm trying to 'fit in'. But I am really sensitive to, well, everything, but especially garlic & onion,... (more)
Hi community, a few years ago we planted a few wild garlic plants in our garden and over the years they have spread all over the place. They really are everywhere! Now, being paleo, I want to use the most paleo food available to me in the... (more)
Hi all! My mom is on paleo for about 5 months now and she is doing great, lots of veg. >600 gr. and a bit fish and grass-fed meat. Three to four meals a day. Cheats every day with a piece of rye bread and about 200 ml sad yoghurt per day.... (more)
Aside from the bad odor that they can give you. are there any scientific reasons, or hypothetical scientific reasons Garlic and/or Onions are/might be bad to consume. Please I'm only looking for science here, not "I feel bad after I eat onions",... (more)
Garlic and onions are often big problems for people with digestive disorders. Those who have difficulties with FODMAP foods often have problems with garlic and onions. It is my understanding, however, that the FODMAPs are not believed to cause the... (more)
Why is it that I can eat cucumber, but even eating 1/2 a Bubbie's pickle gives me painful gas? Is it (a) the increased probiotics (even though other sources of probiotics don't bug me, like kefir), or (b) the fact that the brine contains garlic... (more)
I have heard garlic increases testosterone and protein synthesis. So I tried it. My diet: VLC mostly raw lamb and beef, meat/fat liver, fish oil, coconut oil, avocado, tallow, green veggies, no starchy roots or grains, or fruit. My goal has... (more)
+1 for "nocturnal emmisson", +1 for tracking your BW that closely, +1 for figuring out how to get a 6x increase in weight gain over base, by eating raw garlic.
Just woke up from a vivid nightmare. It's not unusual for me to have several nightmares a month - this isn't something new that started when I began Paleo eating. At one point I narrowed the trigger down to onions and garlic (I had onions with my... (more)
Garlic is supposed to be a natural remedy for many things. I have seen this garlic extract for sale that has been aged/fermented for 20 months. Since then, I have wondered if aging or fermenting garlic would enhance its benefits. When I buy... (more)
I had heard that garlic helps boost T levels. i have 500MG of garlic + protien shake (10-15GRAMS) everyday in the morning (after workouts if i am working out that day). Any thoughts/feedback on garlic supplementation?
Eating actual garlic and actual protein like beef will help boost T a lot more than that combo. You could probably check out some porn to boost T even more significantly though.
I had been using inulin powder recently along with the Primal Defense Probiotic. I read that inulin helps the probiotic, so it seemed like a good idea at the time. The inulin seemed to be causing me some gut ache, just below my waist, which... (more)
"It got me thinking though, if inulin and other FODMAPs are good for some of the so called "good bacteria" then surely avoiding FODMAPs is not good in the long run?" It's pretty unlikely you are sensitive to all FODMAPs and even more unlikely you... (more)
Garlic has an antiseptic impact. I love garlic, I eat a lot of lamb and lamb goes together well with lots of garlic. Does a high garlic consumption affect my gut flora?
Garlic oil is usually garlic flavored olive oil, canola oil or a blend. The usual paleo advice would apply (stay away from tthe canola, don't cook with the olive oil). Might be awesome for salads.
Another vegetable question: Does Garlic contain alot of fructose? Is it toxic in large amounts(Of oven-roasted garlic bought 'fresh' from the grocery store)? I have heard from one internet site that it is "pathogenic". Of course what disease it... (more)
