  2. Dear Sir,

    Can garlic cloves be heated wigh ghee till they get brownish and then consumed? Is this way better than chewing raw garlic?


  3. Great remedy. Should the garlic be organic? Milk 2%, whole and/or organic? Also, what if amount of garlic used is only 2 cloves. Will that still be of benefit? Thanks again, Happy New Year

    • Hi, for any home remedy, if you can get organic ingredients, it is generally considered as better. 2 cloves, is sufficient, if one is considering to use this remedy on daily basis.

  4. Adding one green crushed cardamom while boiling garlic in milk will provide more astonishing results.

  5. Thank you Doctor. for the useful article.
    My mother had given this to me after my delivery from 20 days on wards. She said it will improve the lactation. had it daily for 3 months!
    Is it true?

  6. Hi, this milk garlic remedy – 2 tablespoon with a small pinch of turmeric is good for kids with cough and wheezing. But the other set of medicines that you have listed, is not safe, unless prescribed by an Ayurveda doctor.

  7. Is Garlic milk good for GERD and heartburn. Does it heal an inflammed esophagus due to reflux. Please advice…..I have LES laxity…

  8. With my little understanding of Sanskrit without formal education I am understanding the shloka to mean that : Liquid should be reduced to quantity of milk excluding quantity of garlic. Including garlic in measuring / estimating remaining liquid may make a difference of about 5 grams while making 40 ml of garlic milk. However shloka is recommending use of 4 palas of garlic and eight times = 32 palas = 1.536 liters of milk. Each pala being 48 grams, including garlic in measuring / estimating remaining liquid makes a huge difference.
    My reasoning is based on:
    The milk which is Dharoshna (freshly milked from the cow when it is warm) immediately cures Jwara caused by the aggravation of Vayu and Pitta. [Charaka Jwara Chikitsa: Ch3:237-238]
    This means that Dharoshna milk is ideal form of milk and milk that is more diluted or concentrated than Dharoshna milk is less than ideal. So the idea is not to evaporate milk to make it concentrated. Concentrated milk should increase kapha causing qualities in milk.


  9. Hi, it can be continued for 2 months time. There is no rule that something should be eaten after taking this. It can be carried to office. I am just not sure, if milk will get spoiled by the afternoon.

  10. Boil 2 pearls of garlic in half a cup of milk and then eat it along with the same milk. Once per day.

  11. Hi Dr,

    Do you have these explanations in any book that you authored.I would like to buy it and follow it. I would also like to learn how to make Amla Ashristam (tonic) at home.

    Thank you Dr for all the topics. I really enjoy reading it and studying it.
