Hello Moony -

Interesting questions. Not being a doctor of any kind, I cannot give you any advice but I can discuss garlic and let you and your doctors decide what, if anything, to do.

Yes to your first question if you can frequently submerge your head in a garlic bath. Also, washing your mouth and gargling with garlic water will help, too.

The answer to your second question is also yes but it will work better if you swish garlic water around the mouth and lips if it is natural non-irradiated garlic. Irradiated garlic will not work because the radiation kills it and it cannot make allicin, the active compound in garlic with the greatest antimicrobial properties.

The answer to your third question is ...some but not as much as a full bath.

As to the final question about mixing crushed garlic in coconut oil and applying to the abdomen, I have to say no because the garlic water baths get allicin into the bloodstream but mixing it into any kind of oil will not get allicin into the bloodstream. The reason is the lipids are too large to pass through the pores in the capillary walls and so cannot get into the water-soluble bloodstream and instead goes into the fat-soluble lymphatic system where they do similar things in a different area but that's another story.

The most important thing is to get the right kind of garlic and this time of year that is particularly difficult to do because most growers are sold out and good firm garlic will not be available until fall. Garlic powder made the right way will also work. Not garlic salt which is mostly processed salt! The way to tell if it is good is to place a few grains on the tongue and if it is hot to the taste, it is good garlic powder; if it is not hot to the taste, it will not work.

The best thing is to read my garlic and garlic water posts in detail because that leads to an understanding of how and why this herbal folk remedy, natural garlic, does the things it does. Reading the garlic Success Stories thread is good, too, because people tell what they did and the results they got. Most seemed to be successful but some weren't, mostly because they got irradiated garlic or heated it and killed the allicin but used correctly, it worked most of the time. It affects different people differently because we are all physiologically unique and no medicine or treatment works the same for everyone.

Hope this helps.
