According to health experts from the University of Quebec’s Molecular Medicine Laboratory in Montreal, members of the Allium family – including garlic, onions, leeks and chives – have been used as medicine for thousands of years.
A study of 25,000 people from Switzerland and Italy found that those who ate the most garlic and onions were up to 88 percent less likely to develop various types of cancer than those who said they ate little or none.
Lots of studies show an association between increased intake of garlic and reduced risk of certain cancers, such as stomach cancer, colon cancer, esophagus cancer, pancreas cancer, and breast cancer. And a previous study concluded that eating raw garlic may help cut risk of lung cancer almost in half.
Plus, more than twenty compounds in garlic have been shown to have anti-cancer properties, garlic as well as onions offer rich nutrients to protect against serious diseases like cancer. Researchers found moderate consumption of onions appeared to reduce the risk of colorectal, laryngeal, and ovarian cancers.
One thing that has stuck in my mind from studying with The Institute for Integrative Nutrition, (IIN), was something the founder of the school Joshua Rosenthal said to us, this will help you to remember certain qualities of your food and what it is good for. He said for example,”What do we think of when we think of the color white and what it represents?” Most people would probably say purity, clean or cleansing. Well that is exactly what white vegetables do to our bodies. Garlic, onions, mushrooms, cauliflower, any of the white vegetables cleanses the toxins from our body, thus a good reason they are a source for preventative care. Another tip to help remember it’s value, for example is, take a look at walnuts, what do they look like to you? What does it resemble in the human body? Did you say the brain? You are correct. Eating walnuts & pecans are a good source for omega 3! Omega 3 is necessary for the brain and all its functions along with also helping to reduce inflammation in the body. If you eat foods that prevent inflammation, then you are less likely to get diseases and body pains. Pain and disease is caused by inflammation in the body. Let’s have some more fun! Lets take a look at beets, when sliced, what does the beet look like to you that may represent the human body? I can’t imagine what you may have said because it
stumped me at the time. Well if you said your intestines, then you are correct. They resemble the long and windy intestinal tract. Beets are good for our digestion and are good cancer fighters, they can break up tumors mainly by their excellent amount of betacyanin.
That was just a few fun facts to help you associate with your food. These are the kinds of qualities a Shaman would learn. Long before doctors and scholars, there were Shaman. These people have the ability to communicate with plants. They have a natural instinct, similar to animals on what a plants medicinal properties would be. Sounds a little crazy but it’s a spiritual natural thing they poses.
Well back to the garlic and onion soup…. enjoy~
Garlic and Onion Soup
- 1 1/2 head of garlic
- 2 whole medium onions
- 1/4 olive oil, personally I use avocado oil, non gmo found at Bj’s
- seasonings of your choice but there is incredible flavor with just the onion and garlic.
- If you already have a cold and then drink this, be ready to blow your nose, it will loosen everything up.
- Peel every clove of the head of garlic.
- Slice the cloves of garlic thin and cut into strips or use mincer.
- Peel the onion. Cut the onion in half and slice very thin.
- Heat olive oil in a sauce pan. Lightly saute the slivers of garlic until softened. Do not brown.
- Add onions, saute until onions become soft and translucent.
- Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
- Add 4 cups of chicken broth and cook on med/low for 25 minutes.
- Don’t cook on high because it kills the nutrients. It’s better to cook longer on lower temperature.
- Adjust salt and pepper to taste.
- Serve in a bowl.
