Allicin Medical Uses (S)

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

S Scabies – Sore throat


Medical Definition
This is a skin infection caused by the mite Sarcoptes scabiei, typified by severe itching, especially at night. Characteristic red papules are caused by deposits of faeces left by the mite, which tunnels into the skin to start laying eggs. New hatched mites are easily spread to other people by direct contact. Intense itching represents an allergic reaction to the mite, its eggs and faeces.

The penis, nipples and the skin between the fingers are the most commonly affected areas. Normal treatment is with insecticides including Lindane and all sexual contacts and family members must be treated.

TreatmentCurrently allicin has not been used to any great extent on treating scabies. However, as we have already seen, allicin can kill head lice so a soap formulation of allicin is recommended.


Medical Definition
This is another herpetic virus known as Herpes Zoster.

Chickenpox is the primary infection of this virus and it is only when this reactivates that it produces the condition known as shingles.

TreatmentA large dose of allicin powder, 1080mg to 1800mg per day should be taken for several months to try and remove this resistant infection.


Medical Definition
Sinusitis is an inflammation of the sinus cavities and may be caused by a variety of factors. Most recently Johns Hopkins Medical School in America has shown that recurrent sinusitis is often associated with a fungal infection. Other contributory factors will include food allergy reactions and inhalant allergy from existing medications.

Worldwide millions of people suffer from sinus disease, which causes symptoms like hay fever, runny nose and post nasal drip. People are encouraged to buy expensive over the counter medications that may relieve symptoms for a short period. A minor operation to unplug the sinuses and remove all the infection built up is a relatively simple day surgery operation but rather uncomfortable. Unfortunately the symptoms usually recur after just a few months – since the fungal component of this infection keeps returning.

TreatmentTake 180mg-540mg of allicin powder daily for 2 weeks followed by a maintenance dose of 180mg of allicin powder daily.

Mr JH from Bexhill, UK, Mr PD from Prescott, Arizona and Mrs JAH from Oslo, Norway all had recurrent and persistent sinusitis. Having also had an operation to unblock the sinus cavities they still had the common symptoms including sneezing, runny nose and a constant feeling of being bunged up. They all tried using allicin and adopted the above protocol and gained excellent benefits.


Medical Definition
A condition caused by a variety of microbes including bacteria, virus and fungal species.

As one of the commonest infections known to man it is also one of the most troublesome, causing intense discomfort that hitherto could only be temporarily alleviated by anaesthetic lozenges bought over the counter.

TreatmentTake 360mg or 540mg of allicin powder in one go and your sore throat will fade away and not get any worse. This is because allicin has the unique ability to kill both virus and bacteria at the same time.
