How to Take Fresh Garlic to Cure A Strep Throat
The best way to take garlic for strep throat is to use it raw, several times a day, as you would an anti-biotic. Take one clove from the bulb of garlic and peel it. Finely chop it or put it through a garlic press. Mix the garlic with some honey or spread it on some toast with a bit of coconut oil or butter. Taking garlic this way, with a bit of food, makes it easier on the stomach. Ideally you will take a clove of garlic 4 times daily. Once the fever has broken and symptoms subside, you should continue taking garlic for a few more days to make sure the infection is completely knocked out.
If you make homemade soup or salad, by all means be generous with the fresh garlic in these foods as well.
Garlic powder or garlic gel-caps can be used but they are much less potent than fresh and will likely need to be combined with other remedies to fight the infection.
