Other Conditions A - C

Through the last 15 years, Allicin, derived from garlic, has proven to have many beneficial properties to help with numerous ailments.  We have listed these below and protocols for each ailment.

A

ACNE

Acne, also known as acne vulgaris, is a long-term skin disease that occurs when dead skin cells and oil from the skin clog hair follicles. Typical features of the condition include blackheads or whiteheads, pimples, oily skin, and possible scarring. It primarily affects skin with a relatively high number of oil glands, including the face, upper part of the chest, and back.


Allicin has antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral, and antiseptic properties. Allicin helps to kill the bacteria causing acne. It also helps to reduce swelling and inflammation, and improve blood circulation. These beneficial effects allow skin to receive more nutrients. Allicin also has thiosulfinates, which can act as an antimicrobial. Many believe that with regular use, it clears the skin. Garlic also contains other vitamins and minerals that are believed to combat acne, like vitamin C, vitamin B-6, selenium, copper, and zinc. Some studies have shown allicin to have anti-inflammatory properties. These properties are believed to help reduce the inflammation of acne.


Staphylococci are one of the  bacteria causing disease in humans. They are normal inhabitants of the upper respiratory tract, skin, vagina and intestine. Allicin liquid extracts, formulated into cream, are highly active against staphylococcus aureaus found in acne. 


AlliUltra Capsules:  Use 1-2 caps, 4 times/day for 4 weeks, then reduce to 1 cap 4 times/day.

Allimax Cream or Allimax Liquid: Use Topically 2-3 times/day.


Apthous Ulcers

Aphthous stomatitis is a common condition characterized by the repeated formation of benign and non-contagious mouth ulcers in otherwise healthy individuals. The informal term canker sores is also used, mainly in North America, although this may also refer to any mouth ulcers.


The major component of garlic is allicin, which helps decrease inflammatory factors, reduce the migration of neutrophils, inhibit bacterium and virus, antagonize oxidation and regulate immunity. By these bio-activities of anti-inflammation, anti-microbial activity, anti-oxidation and immunomodulation, the allicin may be an effective therapeutic candidate to control the pain, promote ulcer healing and prevent the recurrence of RAU.


Allimax Liquid: Use 6 drops in water, swish and swallow, every hour for 4 hours, then once daily


Asthma

Asthma is a common long-term inflammatory disease of the airways of the lungs. It is characterized by variable and recurring symptoms, reversible airflow obstruction, and easily triggered broncho spasms. Symptoms include episodes of wheezing, coughing, chest tightness, and shortness of breath.


Traditionally garlic extracts have been used to improve circulation. It is thought that allicin is the key component involved in vasodilation of the small capillaries and alveolar in the lungs. Taking up to three ALLIMAX capsules per day will enable allicin to help improve that circulation and breathing capacity. Since asthma is an allergic condition the allicin will help to control the immune system and reduce some of the symptoms.

  • Garlic contains natural compounds such as vitamin C and allicin that neutralize free radicals – the unstable molecules that promote contraction of the airway muscles in asthma sufferers.
  • Vitamin C in garlic also promotes histamine breakdown and reduce the release of histamine in the body. Histamine is a chemical release by the body that is involved in a number of allergic reactions and is known to cause inflammation in asthma patients.
  • Garlic also boosts the ability of the body to produce prostacyclins. These are lipid molecules that help to keep the air passages open and promote easy breathing in asthma patients.

Allimax Capsules: Take 1-4 caps, 4 times/day, 8 capsules to prevent expected attack.


Athlete’s Foot (dermatophyte)

Athlete's foot, known medically as tinea pedis, is a common skin infection of the feet caused by fungus. Signs and symptoms often include itching, scaling, cracking and redness. In rare cases the skin may blister. Athlete's foot fungus may infect any part of the foot, but most often grows between the toes.


According to the National Institutes of Health, allicin is a natural anti-fungal agent and the allicin found in fresh garlic may help to treat vaginal yeast infections, candida overgrowth, athletes foot, and other fungal infections.


Allimax Cream: Apply between toes 2 times/day 4 to 6 weeks. Reduces itch. 

Allimax Capsules: Take 2-4 also per day.


B


Bed Sores

Bedsores are areas of damaged skin and tissue caused by sustained pressure. These often occur from long periods spent in a bed or wheelchair.  Bedsores form when blood circulation is reduced in vulnerable areas of the body. They are also called pressure ulcers and decubitus ulcers and are injuries to skin and underlying tissue resulting from prolonged pressure on the skin.


Allicin is an anti-inflammatory. To prevent the flare up of a bed sore you need anti-inflammatories. To prevent infection of the bed sore antibiotics are need. Both of these can be accomplished with allicin derived from garlic.  With regular application the discomfort will be reduced and the healing process will begin.


Allimax Liquid: Apply to sore, cover with pressure bandage. Change frequently.



Bites

These include bug bites, bee stings, etc.


Allicin is one of the most effective remedies for bits. Allicin helps fight harmful viruses and can inhibit the growth of bacteria. Allicin also has the anti-bacterial, antiseptic, and anti-inflammatory attributes to alleviate bite issues. The antimicrobial properties in allicin help kill bacteria and help bites to heal quickly.


Allimax Liquid: Use on minor bites after thorough cleaning. 3 to 4 times per day for a 1 week

AlliUltra Caps: Take 1-2 caps daily for a period of about 6 weeks.


Blood Pressure


Blood pressure is the pressure of circulating blood on the walls of blood vessels. Most of this pressure is due to work done by the heart by pumping blood through the circulatory system. Used without further specification, "blood pressure" usually refers to the pressure in large arteries of the systemic circulation.


Research suggests that allicin may help regulate blood pressure and may be as effective as medication for treating hypertension. In a 2013 clinical trial, 210 patients with high blood pressure were given between 300 mg and 1,500 mg garlic tablets, a placebo, or the beta-blocker atenolol.  


Allicin is thought to lower blood pressure by relaxing blood vessels, reducing damage and pressure. The compound also interferes with smoothly contracting muscles and enzyme effects that increase blood pressure, and, on top of its anti-hypertensive ability, is responsible for the potent antibacterial, antioxidant, anti-blood coagulation, lipid-lowering, and anti-cancer activity.


There is a lot of clinical research on the benefits of allicin. Besides treating high blood pressure, allicin has been found to lower total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, and triglycerides, while increasing high-density lipoprotein cholesterol. As a result, allicin may improve the circulatory system overall, which may reduce the risk of stroke and heart attack. 


Allicin may also help prevent of cancer, the common cold, atherosclerosis, and diabetic heart disease. The antiviral ability of allicin allows it to fight bacteria such as drug-resistant staph infections.


Allimax Capsules: Take 1-6 caps, 4 times/day


Bronchitis

Bronchitis is inflammation of the bronchi in the lungs that causes coughing. Symptoms include coughing up sputum, wheezing, shortness of breath, and chest pain. Bronchitis can be acute or chronic. Acute bronchitis usually has a cough that lasts around three weeks, and is also known as a chest cold.


There is evidence that suggests allicin gets rid of bad, inflammation-causing bacteria instead of the good bacteria since it has antiviral and antibacterial properties.


AlliUltra Capsules: Take 2 caps, 3 times/day, 2-3 days. Then 1 cap 3 times/day until resolved.



Candidiasis 

Candidiasis is a fungal infection due to any type of Candida. Signs and symptoms include white patches on the tongue or other areas of the mouth and throat. Other symptoms may include soreness and problems swallowing. When it affects the vagina, it may be referred to as a yeast infection.


Allicin works powerfully on candida and yeast infections and is also is very effective with many fungi, including Aspergillus, CANDIDA, Coccidioides, Cryptotoccocci, Histoplasma and Trichophyton."


AlliUltra Capsules: 2-4 caps, 4 times/day for 1 month with diet changes. Consider Allimax PrePro.




Cystitis

Cystitis is an inflammation of the bladder and in most cases, the is a urinary tract infection (UTI).


Allicin is well known for its antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral properties. Allicin also exhibits antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and immune-modulatory effects that aid in the treatment of interstitial cystitis .


AlliUltra Capsules: 2-4 caps, 4 times/day for 4 weeks



Cellulitis

Cellulitis is a bacterial infection involving the inner layers of the skin. It specifically affects the dermis and subcutaneous fat. Signs and symptoms include an area of redness which increases in size over a few days and the skin may be swollen.


Allicin is useful for leg cellulitis treatment because of its sulphur properties and it’s is rich in antimicrobial properties which helps to fight against infections. Reports indicate that it acts as anti-inflammatory, reducing swelling and pain.


Allimax Liquid or Allimax Cream: Apply topically 2 times/day. 

AlliUltra Capsules: Take 2 caps, 4 times/day for 2 weeks, double if antibiotic resistance has been established.



Cholesterol

Cholesterol is an organic molecule. It is a sterol, a type of lipid. Cholesterol is biosynthesized by all animal cells and is an essential structural component of animal cell membranes. Cholesterol also serves as a precursor for the biosynthesis of steroid hormones, bile acid and vitamin D.


Medical researchers in America and Oxford have stated recently that allicin found in garlic, has an important part to play in the treatment of high cholesterol . Overall a 12% reduction in total cholesterol can be expected and this reduction will normally be evident after only 4 weeks treatment. 


AlliUltra Capsules: Take 1-2 caps, 4 times/day


Circulation, Blood

The circulatory system, also called the cardiovascular system, is an organ system permitting blood to circulate and transport nutrients, oxygen, carbon dioxide, hormones, and blood cells to and from the cells in the body to provide nourishment and help in fighting diseases, stabilize temperature and pH, and maintain homeostasis.

Allicin is good for more than boosting the immune system. It also has shown to have the power to stop blood clots from forming in your bloodstream and can prevent cardiovascular disease. 


Studies suggest that allicin can increase tissue blood flow and lower blood pressure by relaxing your blood vessels.


In a study in 42 people with coronary artery disease, those who consumed garlic powder tablets containing 1,200 mg of allicin twice daily for three months experienced a 50% improvement in blood flow through the upper arm artery compared to a placebo group


Allimax Capsules: Take 1-4 caps, 4 times/day



Cold Sore/HSV

Cold sores are painful blisters caused by an infection with the herpes simplex virus (HSV).


Allicin is a chemical compound present in garlic that helps to reduce the swelling, inflammation and pain caused due to cold sores. It contains indole - 3 - carbinol (I3C) that boosts the immune system to help prevent cold sores along with recurrence. It also has many essential nutrients for enhancing immunity.


Allimax Liquid: Apply one drop at the first indication of an outbreak and 3 times/day for one week beyond the resolution of the cold sore.


Cough

A cough is a sudden expulsion of air through the large breathing passages that can help clear them of fluids, irritants, foreign particles and microbes


Coughs caused by irritation in the lining of the esophagus can be effectively treated with an allicin-based tea drink that soothes the pain and reduces inflammation. 


Make an Allicin-Based Tea to Soothe a Cough. Boil water as you would to make any tea.  Allicin is the most important ingredient that determines the effectiveness of cough treatment because it is extremely effective


AlliUltra Capsules: Open 3 caps and dissolve contents in warm water and gargle.  Orally, take 3 capsules 4 times/day, then reduce dose as cough improves.



Cryptosporidium

Cryptosporidium is a genus of apicomplexan parasitic alveolates that can cause a respiratory and gastrointestinal illness that primarily involves watery diarrhea with or without a persistent cough in both immuno competent and immuno deficient humans.


Allicin is able to target colitis, diarrhea, dysentery, and parasitic infestations. Even with its potent effects, it does not negatively affect the good bacteria and flora in the digestive system. Allicin only affects the bad organisms so the gastrointestinal tract can be rebalanced and return you to good health. To maintain good digestive health, include allicin in your daily diet. Allicin stabilizes the intestinal system resulting in proper digestion. Even small traces of inflammation or irritation in your digestive tract can be corrected if you use allicin as a natural treatment.


Allimed Capsules: Take 1-2 caps or 8-16 drops of Allimed Liquid 4 times/day long term
