I have used a lemon garlic drink to fight infection. There was a time years ago when I had an abscess in my mouth. It came from a tooth that was giving me troubles. I prayed about what I could do to get rid of it. The answer came to make a lemon garlic drink. I went in the kitchen and started making one. Within 12 hours, the infection had gone down by half.
I have told other people about this and they have also found success. One lady found that it helped her with her bronchitis.
My original recipe for Infection-Fighting Lemon Garlic Drink was submitted to the Herbal Legacy website. For this recipe, I am making a little revision by including the lemon peel.
The nice thing about including the whole lemon peel is that it helps you to not have bad breath from the garlic. The yellow part of the rind has essential oils that fight germs, is a natural deodorant and mouthwash refreshener.
All parts of the lemon are amazingly helpful; the vitamin C rich inside, the vitamin C complex white part of the rind, the lemon oils in the rind, and even the bitter antioxidant rich seeds. The garlic bud that is added is liquefied to become more effective. Garlic is known to kill all bacteria, fungus, parasites, and germs.
Garlic is a natural antiobiotic, known as the poor mans antiobiotic. The good thing is that your good bacteria or probiotics are unaffected by garlic. This is a natural way that is better for your system than to continually take antibiotics, which kill off your good bacteria and lead to more infection in the long run.
The taste is fine for this drink. The lemon covers the garlic odor and taste. And the garlic helps to mellow the taste of lemon.
