If you’re looking to read something a little more technical, here is a short article about the benefits of garlic for those with dementia. Add more garlic, onions and leeks to your menu. They are best eaten raw, but still offer healthful benefits if cooked at low temperature.
Note about garlic: you lose about 30 to 50% of the nutritional benefits when you cook the garlic, more if you fry it. I have a short video talking about growing garlic here.
If you want to learn more about how easy it is to grow your food, check out the FOOD AS MEDICINE Part 5.
In this lecture series, I partner with a master gardener who delivers a wonderful presentation on how to begin to create nutritional abundance for you and your family. All you need is some sunshine to begin.
An easy way to use more garlic is to mince it finely and add it to vinegar (or lime juice) and oil (such as walnut, hemp or flax) for your salad dressing. It also makes a wonderful addition to your soups and stews. Be generous–use lots of garlic, onions and leeks. They do many wonderful things for your cells!
To Your Health,
Dr. Terry Wahls
