Allicin Medical Uses (I)

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

I Impetigo – Irritable Bowel Syndrome


Medical Definition
Impetigo is a superficial bacterial infection of the skin caused by Staphylococcus aureus infection. It mainly affects young children and is highly infectious, causing a yellow brown crusting on the skin.

For a young child this can be a particularly distressing condition as friends have to be warned ”do not touch” as it is so infectious. Once again the bacterial species involved are Staphylococcus, which are highly sensitive to allicin treatment.

TreatmentFor children under the age of 5 it is best to remove the powder from the capsule and spread the allicin over the child’s favourite food or dissolve it in a juice drink. For older children you should gently apply 200mg of allicin powder every 4 hours and dose 720mg of allicin powder per day until the outbreak subsides. If your child has contact with any friends as well as family members then everyone should take 180-360mg of allicin powder a day to prevent the infection from passing on.

A few weeks ago little Eric from Atlanta GA developed a nasty bout of impetigo. His mother was really worried as she couldn’t get hold of any antibiotics to calm it down and they were having a BBQ that day with lots of his friends invited. “I really wanted something to help immediately and a friend said she had just purchased some allicin capsules and a small supply of liquid. We used it immediately on Eric and literally within a few hours the attack had subsided and his plaques began to clear up. We were naturally delighted and would recommend this to anyone else who suffers from this debilitating condition.”


Medical Definition
This is a common condition in which recurrent abdominal pain with constipation and/or diarrhoea continues for years without any deterioration in general health. Although the cause is unknown it is generally accepted that stress, anxiety and a series of recurrent infections in the intestine all contribute.

Most doctors will now agree that people who suffer from a wide range of digestive problems are likely to have an imbalance in the quality and content of their intestinal flora. Our stomach contains many hundreds of bacterial species, some of which are aggressive to our digestive system but many that are absolutely necessary for maintaining a normal healthy functioning digestive system. When this balance is upset symptoms will occur and until the balance is reset many people will continue to suffer.

Allicin can be described as a Pre-biotic in that it possesses an ability to kill harmful digestive bacteria like Salmonella and Escherichia coli, but will leave healthy bacterial species like Lactobacillus and Acidophilus alone. This means that your own population of friendly bacteria can go about their business and continue to flourish and replicate without any problems from an over-population of nasty bugs. If you add a good quality probiotic (pick one that is multi-strain and offers as many friendly bacterial strains as possible) you will also add significantly to your friendly digestive population. Within a very short period of time you will notice that your bowel habits return to normal and that you can happily eat whatever you like.

TreatmentAdd 360-720mg of allicin powder plus a multi-strain probiotic to every meal.

Jenny B from Stone in Kent has never been able to digest certain foods, especially bread. Already a convert to allicin she added in a probiotic and follows the regimen detailed above. Within just a matter of days she was able to digest meals more easily and even bread stopped giving her stomach cramps and constipation.
