In the previous sections, you will find a detailed description of all the benefits that taking raw garlic continuously has on our health. If we eat it raw, it will allow the active ingredients to remain untouched. The perfect way of taking garlic is to chop it into small slices in order to allow a chemical reaction between sulphur and alliin.
According to many cultures, the best medicine is the one capable of preventing the outbreak of diseases and we totally agree with this: it is better to prevent than to cure!
We would like to start with an obvious but often overlooked consideration: we are born healthy, without diseases. Problems arise when our body stops being balanced. For example, if we eat too much, we will gain weight; if we make great efforts, which we are not prepared for, this will lead to sprains or worse; if we subject our body to sudden temperature changes we will get ill; smoking and breathing in foul air will damage our lungs, etc.
Therefore, the best strategy to stay healthy is to be balanced and aware that this is necessary. All excesses and drastic situations consume and damage our body and, in the long run, we need to be ready for something bad to happen.
Sometimes we act against our body involuntarily, forcing it to suffer exaggerated pressure. The solution is very simple: an adequate diet. By saying this, we do not mean to give up anything that is tasty or to become vegetarians: we simply need to listen to our body. It knows its own limits and what it needs to feel good: after all, we are an extraordinary and complex machine.
We need to take into consideration another very important thing: diet is not always the one and only element for perfect health.
Problems such as neuralgia, headache and muscle pain are just a few typical examples of problems that we deal with on a daily basis.
Garlic and a good nutrition can help to improve our balance in order to approach life and its obstacles much better.
