Why Yogis do not Eat Garlic and Onion — 3 Comments

  1. So much controversy on the eating of these plants. I see some Ayurvedic sites saying, “No way! Do Not eat any of these”, some saying, “it’s okay to eat for mucus or infection” and others who actually say, “it’s all a myth” and share recipes containing garlic & onions! I also noticed that asafoetida is on most no-no lists. Very confusing indeed!Feeling quite forced to take garlic medicinally as the several replacements(Septilin, amla, ashwaganda turmeric, black pepper), I’m now taking seem to be doing little to heal acute bronchitis. Raw garlic begins working within 24 hours(personally). Is there another natural substance that actually works like garlic & as quickly as garlic to treat infections? AND is as affordable as organic garlic? Please do tell if you know of anything! Thanks for the information.

    • Hi Mattie,
      Thank you for your comment.
      Sitopaladi is effectively used for bronchial conditions and cough. It is available at Amazon and in Indian stores.
      Turmeric taken with honey is also effective and very affordable.
      Stay well.
