Can you ever NOT take garlic might be the better question. (i think there may be some slight blood thinning qualities of garlic so i suppose there is a limit for some people).
I was just coming in here to moan about how sick my antibiotics make me feel. i can only imagine that with garlic. i already have such horrible heartburn. The doctor tried to pre-emptively prescribe something for it that i think was prilosec? And I said, no, i don't take stuff like that and if i have heartburn i will take Tums, and the other doctor (not mine) said "you will ruin your stomach by base-ifying it and then you'll never be able to digest anything again". I wanted to say "you are a dermatologist, what the fizzle do you know" but instead said it sounded a lot like poppycock to me, thank you very much, and i left.
of course, now, i have heartburn, and so i'm bitchier than usual, but base-ify my stomach? i still think that's a load of shiitake. maybe i should try garlic.
