Garlic has been food and medicine for thousands of years.
Many recipes from the ancient Egyptians include garlic for the treatment of infections ailments and physical weakness. The ancient Greeks used it freely, and the athletes at the Olympics ate garlic to improve their performance.
However, garlic was not limited to Europe. Ayurvedic doctors in India prescribe it for rheumatism and to prevent heart disease, and in Japan and China since ancient times it was a remedy for high blood pressure.
Honey has been used for medicinal purposes in most cultures throughout history, although in the West, in the middle of the century, it was ruled out in favor of antibiotics.
One of the drivers of this rediscovery is the success of honey in the fight against drug-resistant wound infections.
