Allicin Medical uses

An A to Z of aliments that allicin can be used to treat

a Acne – Athlete’s foot


Medical Definition
Acne vulgaris is a common inflammatory disorder of the sebaceous glands characterised by the presence of blackheads with papules, pustules and in more severe cases – cysts and scars.

Although the actual cause is still unknown many physicians believe acne is an infection. In particular Staphylococcus, Streptococcus and Candida albicans can infect tiny oil-secreting sebaceous glands found in large numbers on the face, upper back and chest. This leads to a worsening of clinical symptoms, and making treatment difficult. Allicin powder and allicin liquid both routinely kill Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus species and Candida albicans. Their mild natural acidity is a big advantage as an acidic pH has been shown to be protective and guard against bacterial overgrowth. Thirdly, allicin liquid helps dry the skin quickly which in turn helps to shrink swollen lesions and assist in their removal. It also helps to pay attention to diet. Certain foods, especially sugar, caffeine, cocoa, refined vegetable oils and various preservatives, can aggravate the condition.

TreatmentTake 360-720mg of allicin powder every day for at least 4 weeks. At the same time use some allicin powder with little water applied directly to each pimple and, if you can, add some allicin powder to the cleanser that you use each day. With regular use of allicin liquid and capsules significant results can be expected within 2 weeks. At this stage you can reduce the dose of capsules down to a maintenance dose of just 180mg allicin powder each day. This is important to remember as it will help you develop a degree of protection against a further bacterial overgrowth.

Bites from pets are remarkably common, followed by bites from wild species and even humans. Any bite opens the victim up to any infectious organisms, which may be present.

A bite means that it is easy for microbes to get directly into the blood and surrounding tissue. Because of this many physicians refuse to suture an animal bite since this would effectively seal the infection in. The result can be poor wound healing as well as the continued potential for infection. In this situation allicin liquid can kill a wide range of invasive organisms. Anyone prone to bites because of their surroundings or job can take allicin powder to maintain a year-round background resistance to infection

TreatmentAfter you have washed the wound thoroughly squeeze in a generous supply of allicin cream. This may sting a little but don’t be afraid to persevere. Continue this 2-3 times a day for at least a week. The wound should begin to heal quickly. At the same time take 360-540mg of allicin powder daily for a period of about 6 weeks to make sure you have sufficient allicin in your bloodstream to remove any pathogens that may be present.

I have used allicin liquid for treating a bite from a small dog as described above. It seemed to work very quickly and the pain was reduced in a few hours. I have continued to take the capsules and the wound has now healed. Mr DS from Bexhill-on-Sea.

Although arthritis literally means ”joint inflammation,” anyone who has one of its many forms or related conditions knows the condition often extends far beyond bones and cartilage. Examples are Sjögren’s Syndrome, Psoriasis and Irritable Bowel Syndrome. By some estimates, as many as 70 per cent of people with Fibromyalgia have symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) – abdominal pain and bloating along with constipation or diarrhoea or alternating bouts of the two.

In the Middle Ages herbalists commonly recommended crushing up fresh garlic into a piece of muslin and winding it around an arthritic joint. This was to ease the pain and help reduce the swelling. Today we find that allicin combined with ginger is an ideal combination to take orally to help ease the misery of rheumatoid arthritis.

Ginger can help to relieve the pain associated with rheumatoid arthritis, due to its anti-inflammatory effects. It also has a warming effect on the body, which helps to relieve symptoms.The gingerols found in ginger attribute to its stimulating properties and heat promoting effects.

TreatmentTake 360mg of allicin powder with ginger 3 times a day either in addition to current medication or alone. The active ingredients will quickly get absorbed into the joints and help to improve mobility. This is a treatment that needs to be continued long-term.

Widespread narrowing of the bronchial airways, which can change in severity over short periods of time. Symptoms include coughing, wheezing and shortness of breath. Caused by a wide range of allergens in the air, but aggravated by exertion, infection or stressful emotion.

The incidence of asthma is reaching almost epidemic levels. Not only are the death rates increasing but there appears to be no respite as we consistently challenge our body with poor diet, environmental toxins, excessive use of drugs and the fact that we are now constantly under threat from bacterial attack. It is also well known that simple infections like the common cold, coughs and sore throats can trigger an attack. Allicin can prevent and treat the common cold, coughs, sore throats and a wide range of bacterial, viral and fungal disease that can trigger classic asthma symptoms.

TreatmentTake 180mg to 720mg of allicin powder every day and double this dose at times when you can predict an asthma attack coming on.


Medical Definition
This is a fungal infection of the skin, the scalp or the nails. Caused by the dermatophyte fungi – Trichophyton or Epidermatophyton. Its presence in animals is often a source of infection for Man.

The infection can be spread by direct contact or via infected materials, resulting in lesions that are often ring like and may cause intense itching. The commonest form is Athlete’s Foot, which affects the skin between the toes. Another common type is ringworm of the scalp (Tinea Capitis) of which there is a severe form. Ringworm also affects the groin and thighs (Tinea Cruris) also known as Dhobie, or Jock Itch and even the skin under a beard can become infected (Tinea Barbae). In research allicin in low concentration was effective against laboratory samples of Trichophyton, Epidermatophyton, and Microsporum. Allicin inhibits both germination and growth.

TreatmentSimply apply allicin cream between the toes. This should be done twice daily for between 4 to 6 weeks. Within a few hours the itchiness will subside and if it returns then another application should be made. Once the cracking has begun to heal, patients should start on the capsules to act as a preventative against recurrent infections. As an alternative some people prefer to break open capsules and simply rub the powder over the affected area!

Mr KL from Birmingham, Alabama, started using the liquid as a treatment for Athletes Foot in February 2002 and continues to take allicin powder capsules each day. “The results are different to those of other treatments in that it does not dry out the skin but kills the infected tissue. Therefore, the incidence of cracking between the toes is virtually eliminated. The overall time scale is slightly slower than pharmaceutical drugs but it certainly keeps the complaint at bay. Interestingly it has not returned in over 9 months, which is very unusual as I often get recurrent infections.”
