garlic for females

Recommended Posts

Ha, probably should have been a comma or a period between the "her" & the "LOL". I honestly don't know how something would get stuck but it does apparently happen to people and just for that basic fact alone, I just don't think it would ever be worth the embarrassment of having to explain something like that to a doctor. Oddly enough, the person with the cherry never even meant to put it inside her, it kind of just got sucked in apparently, lol.

 

Is that like the chicks that can blow bubbles and stuff? That's some talent.  Vacuum vagina. :D

Susun Weed recommends the garlic suppositories.

 

It's not something I would do.  When I was first getting into herbal stuff one of the books I had said to use crushed garlic on boils or large pimples.  A family friend had a problem with boils so I showed him the book, he agreed to try it and I smashed up some garlic, placed it on the boils and bandaged it.  Later that night when I went to remove it and see if it worked or not we were shocked at the results.  The raw garlic burned his skin.  By the next morning he was covered in scabs where the garlic was placed.

 

I certainly wouldn't put garlic anywhere sensitive after seeing that.

Garlic has it's merits, however.... putting it up inside the female entrance is something that I wouldn't do at all.  I take a garlic pill daily to assist my blood pressure. by mouth.  Would I put it up inside my " dark spot ".... oh hell no.  My niece is a RN, she told me of a story when she was working Urgent Care... and to this day, I can not look at the breath mints Altoids in the same way. I have to shake my head at Female Species when it comes to putting things " up " in places that could render a trip to the Doctor, for their foolishness.   Argh... stupid stupid stupid, in my opinion.

It is also my experience that peeled or crushed garlic, where all the garlicky juices are flowing free, can cause serious burns on sensitive skin that rather just makes any ongoing problems worse.

A douch with warm water and plain yogurt works well without leaving your "wah-hoo" smelling like Italian leftovers. It provides healthy bacterial flora and returns the balance. 

 

Boric acid suppositories or about 1/8th teaspoon in warm water as a douch will also get rid of yeastie-beasties... One suppository every night for three nights will change the pH of the vaginal vault and make it inhospitabile to candida...

Not on the lines of "for females" alone, but as a mother of four, I have used crushed garlic in sweet oil or olive oil for earaches with great success.. simply crush it and soak in oil for several weeks, strain and put in a dropper bottle. I warm it up a bit under warm water before putting a couple drops in the achy ear.. None of my children have ever needed to be on an antibiotic for ear infections so that is my proof of efficacy..

Yeah, things that don't belong 'up there', shouldn't be up there. Once heard of a pencil that rotated and punctured through the vaginal wall...lord love a duck.

 

As far as yeast infections, pure virgin (no pun intended) oil is good. It kills yeast and is an excellent lubricant. A little goes a long way. Always take the oil out of the jar with a spoon to keep the oil free of 'other stuff'. Put it in your palms to warm and melt it, get it onto your fingers, and the rest is self-explanatory. Put plenty around your lips (no not the upper ones, but the lower ones, lol). Also works well as a night facial moisturizer.

Umm, Jevne, does he like coconut?

Was just about to say I've heard coconut oil is amazing for these sorts of maladies.

Coconut oil is amazing for anything. (Maybe somewhat of an exaggeration). I use it as a face wash, scrub with sugar, moisturizer, on cuts, & I've read it's good for preventing and getting rid of ear infections in dogs. Internally, it's good for people with gallbladder problems and also to make the gut healthier. It's an antifungal, antiviral, & antibacterial. Although, I think honey may be better for those purposes. The manuka honey but any natural (correction: raw) honey is good. You can make pretty much anything for external use with coconut oil and add it to pretty much anything for cooking, hell of a lot better the hydrogenated oils and nasty vegetable & canola oil. Personally, I like it in my coffee... Speeds up your metabolism but works as a laxative on some so not really recommended for ppl that usually run to the bathroom after a cup of coffee anyways...

When it comes to an integrative and herbal approach to womens health, esp in the area of reproductive health.. check out these articles by Susan Weed.. I have attended some of her intensives as well as studied with a couple of her graduates at the South East WiseWomen and Herb Conference.. she is a wonderful resource..  I can say as a healthcare provider I have used her information in practice as well as personally, and I have friends who are physicians, nurses and midwives who trust her information..

Wow, that is amazing . . . you remembered entire passages and recipe ingredients and amounts, word-for-word, right off the GlamCheck website.  They probably got their information from the same books.

Hi Nikki

Just to clarify for you and other posters...

 

If you provide information from other websites, or from books, it is essential to provide the source.

We strive to observe the proper 'netiquette' when quoting or even remembering information as we do not want to be accused of plagiarising.

We have had material lifted and copied by other websites in the past, without a link to the source, so we know how it feels to be on the other side of this issue.

Once you get into the habit of it, it is no big deal. In any case, it is often useful to members to have a link to pursue if they are interested to read further.

 

Good housekeeping!

Ok, I know this is a very old thread but I had to resurrect it for a few reasons: the responses crack me up; it's one of the first threads I read all the way through about a month ago before I joined; most importantly I'm speaking from personal experience, not theory or subjective opinion here:

 

So. Ladies.

(And gentlemen brave enough to get this far). My opinion and experience is in direct contradiction to what's been expressed thus far...

 

1. Oral garlic works as a prophylactic, but it's not going to work fast enough if you're having serious issues down there. (Neither would yogurt: oral or otherwise - it's just not potent enough).

 

2. There is a huge difference between cut/crushed garlic and a whole clove. Yes, you peel the papery shell off but you DO NOT cut or even nick the clove! It's potent enough as is.

 

3. It's ALWAYS good to know easy, quick, and all-natural remedies because you never know when you might need them. Be grateful if you don't, but the only time I've ever had to deal with something of this nature I was unfortunate enough to be on a tiny tropical island with no pharmacy. And because it was tropical (not sub-tropical like Florida, but truly in the Tropics) it made the "situation" COMPLETELY UNBEARABLE. So y'all can laugh all you want at women "putting things up there" but I did my research and found this to be the only solution :P

 

4. IT WORKS! And fast. I suffered for days until I tried this and I was fine the very next day. You can do the cheesecloth with a string thing if you're squeamish with your body, but honestly, I just stuck it in (no pharmacy, and no cheesecloth either). It's not going to "get lost" if you're comfortable with your own body...

 

5. Yes, of course you should thoroughly wash your own hands and trim your nails first, and rinse the clove too if you want, but the garlic itself isn't going to be causing any bacteria problems because IT'S A POTENT ANTI-BACTERIAL AND ANTI-FUNGAL.

 

So stop being such prisses and think: what the heck would you have done 100 years ago? ;)

 

Who knows when you might need this information, but if you're unfortunate enough TO need it, you can thank me later because you'll discover that it's truly priceless :D (and if you're a guy, your woman will love you for this knowledge if she's willing to try it).

My dad told me a few weeks ago my grandmother would put sweet oil in the kids ear to get rid of wax and over summer to prevent swimmers ear. I had never heard of it before.
