"Like has been used as medicine like since the dawn of garlic and not just one culture. This sounds like a real oh and very boring book well there. There are lots of histories of garlic social history culture cultural histories medicinal histories because it's interesting sustain in the garlic seem to arise as like a medicinal substance in varying cultures and places geographical regions from different friend medicinal traditions. I guess on its own. I mean maybe there were communications. Were one culture learned it from another or something. I don't know but I as far as I can tell L. There were independently. This idea that garlic was healthy has arisen throughout time. always makes you wonder does that mean. There's there's some legitimacy to it but it doesn't make me wonder that more. We've been doing this show for a few years now and now makes me I had to. I'm somebody who has had the Google Google. The appeal to ancient wisdom felt logical fallacy because I keep forgetting the name of it but that's how how frequently come up on this program so no I do not. I personally feel that way anymore. I still wonder that I think it's good to always keep an open mind and and sometimes yes we continue to do something throughout time and place yes and it never worked and it still doesn't work and then other times there. Maybe there's something there. I'm always telling me that I need to keep an open Sydney. You broken my open mind as you have apps for so many others listeners to this program. I think I don't have an open mind anymore. I have a close one that you occasionally will open the porn colors too and let new ideas in period. Science is all about following the evidence but it's I about asking the question follow the money. No you have to ask the question and you can't ask the question. If your mind is closed okay all right. What's the question. Is Garlic good for you. We'll get them into question. Well I mean that's that's for this episode. They don't think if that's the question yeah life's a lot easier than I gave. It credit fork out forty. Two is the end so the ancient Egyptians Egyptian saw it as a like a standard health kind of supplement if you will it was good for like strength and vitality and it was actually a lot of a lot of different grant writers have said that the the builders of the pyramid so like the laborers in in Egyptian society were given kind of daily rations nations' of garlic to keep them like strong and Ari'el able to build the pyramids. If you look through the papyrus you can find a lot of different remedies. A lot of them are not just garlic. It's a recipe where garlic would be. I guess what we would probably call today. The active ingredient eh one of the active ingredients the reason you're taking this because the garlic is in there and it was it was for a variety of different reasons. There was a recipe for if you're limbs are Shakey. Here's a garlic treatment for you. there was a recipe for a dish that you could use a garlic douche more for AH protecting the vulva. Oh Okay I can protect your Volvo with garlic or you could induce labor possibly awesomely with our like Don't please don't do this by the way don't do. Please don't insert garlic anywhere. Don't usually thing well don't do but what do. Shane is not necessary or it can be harmful but also don't put garlic double. Don't do with garlic anywhere. Yes except in in your mouth. If you want to yeah and in your pasta sauces well yeah and then ostensibly in your mouth next it can also it was also used for constipation for flatulent for indigestion you could apply it topically for hemorrhoids or take it orally there was a poll `test that you could apply with garlic Erlich to your neck for growths of the neck specifically for growth so the neck probably referencing some sort of what we would think of now is like a cancerous growth and you'll find not like a common theme for things before we knew what cancer was for things that were tumors are cancerous growths. we were using garlic for for a very long time I would theory on this about why garlic I have. The're after we've done this long. I I tried to come up with punchy name for it like the appeal. The Angel is the Macho Policy See but I realized that it's already been summed up in a different but it has a different context in that which does not kill you makes you stronger is. I think that in the back in the day like before we understood good like it seems like almost anything that we knew actively didn't kill you could be medicine. Maybe this as medicine and I think garlic like falls into that trap like it has a flavor and it doesn't kill you so it's probably medicine it and it does have a very strong flavor flavor and odor. It's very pungent potent. It does it. It is a flavor sense yeah so I think potent things because you know what's funny is. I'm focusing. Oh Casino garlic but in a lot of these same recipes and like medicinal concoctions you'll find onions mention I in my mind. That's a similar similar idea. It's very potent. You know it seems very potent. Now I am not suggesting the onions have become the medicinal buzz garlic has but but still you can also use a garlic ball and put it over the entrance of a snake hole. If you WANNA keep the snake in in there I mean if you find the right size ball. That would probably work. I don't know how snakes feel about garlic. Please don't give your if you have a snake. Please don't give it garlic. I don't awesome give us. It's fine and you know better than me. I don't know about snakes and garlic either way. Whatever people use it for they found it in King Tut's tomb they found found some garlic and it's it's question though because it was usually used by the laboring class it wouldn't have necessarily been eaten by royalty and so the question was was it King Tut's or was it like somebody left it in their accidentally. Somebody was helping carry stuff in there some garlic in his pocket hippocrates US lots of different foods as Madison Madison. We know that that was he was a mainstay of hippocratic medicine was eat well sleep exercise drinkwater that kind of thing so but he garlic was one of the ones that he used very prominently again strength vitality which I think you could probably tied to the the fact. That garlic is like we we're using potent. Some people call it spicy. I don't know that spicy is the word I'd use but I know I know what people are saying. It is a very strong flavor and odor. It was again used for laborers for athletes. Probably a lot of the early Olympic athletes used garlic as like a performance enhancing drug mm-hmm and then in addition. There are all kinds of different ailments. You could use it for topical applications for again. Things like tumors or growths also pimples there was also a recipe where you mix it with honey and apply it for freckles rally cure those freckles when it was ingested it was often thought to be for things like long illnesses it could be used as a diuretic to make you pee doesn't. I don't really do that but it also could be used to aid digestion but I think is interesting because a lot of people tell me they can't eat garlic because it upsets their stomach interesting so but it but it was thought to a lot prolong illnesses respiratory problems which will get into is probably starting to get into like it. It's calling to the humor system of medicine the balancing of your four humors. I and we start getting into the humor system. Madison we start talking about different foods and beverages as hot or cold sure and different illnesses is hot or cold old and so the treatment of a cold illness would be with a hot food in a hot illness would be cold food fair.
