Naturopath, who treats traditional Indian medicine (Ayurveda), advised me to stop eating onions and garlic?
Garlic, onions, hot peppers, and very spicy foods in their natural form can damage the intestinal walls of people with leaky intestines and among patients with an imbalance in the intestinal flora. At the same time, in cooking, the active ingredients (allicin) are destroyed. It is important to emphasize that garlic and onions contain sulfur, essential for glutathione production, the powerful antioxidant found in almost every cell in our body. Therefore, the recommendation is to consume garlic, onions, and spicy foods to the appropriate extent, usually in cooking and in their natural form in measured amounts.
