Boxer, my initial reaction was that it is unlikely two cloves of garlic (even if that amount were consumed on a daily basis) caused internal bleeding. However, your question caused me to remember a question I asked Trailblazer about why Dr. Sebi restricted the use of garlic in his work with seriously ill people. I’ll paste in Trailblazer’s reply:
About his views on garlic: To be fair, I’ve not done the research on this, but according to him:
Garlic was originally developed as a disinfectant in Egypt. It will clean the blood and all of that, but it has no “off” trigger…it does not “know” when to stop…thus can eat holes in the stomach lining. Somehow it also impairs reflexes and thought patterns…not sure of the medical way of stating this…for example, the US Air Force prohibits its test pilots from consuming garlic for 3 day prior to a test flight…as well as professional fighters/boxers supposedly are advised to stay away from it for a few days before a match.
Again, this is only a laymans way of explaining what he preaches (“I’m not a doctor…I just play one on T.V.”)…but it’s food for thought.
If you’d like more information on the topic, I’d suggest that you do a search on Google for [i]garlic “stomach pain” bleeding[/i]. It seems that more serious side effects have been reported with the use of garlic, including “an increase in the risk of bleeding, heart attack, stomach pain, vomiting blood, and lesions on the lining of the stomach.”
Though, personally, I’m inclined to question (and doubt) the use of garlic increasing the risk of heart attack.
