Amazon 5-star reviews of The Healing Power of Garlic
"Easy to read and comprehensive, this book gave very specific information on the benefits, side effects and contraindication of garlic. Lot's of references and a more serious compliment to The Book of Garlic."
Healing Power Of Garlic, so far what I have read in this book is very interesting. I know from past experience that Garlic can be very useful to the body. There is a vast amount of knowledge in this book. There are case studies all throughout the book from making recipes out of Garlic to cure earaches to how to prevent cancer. After each chapter the author gives references where they got the information at. I'm enjoying everything about this book.
Even though this book isn’t new, neither is the use of garlic for health and healing. This is a classic with so much practical wisdom It will be a reference I will use for decades.
