Garlic…a brain poison?

…from GARLIC – TOXIC SHOCK!Reprinted from Nexus Magazine, Feb/Mar 2001.Source: From a lecture by physicist Dr. Robert C. Beck, DSc, given at the Whole Life Expo, Seattle, WA, USA, in March 1996. {Asterisked entries (*) refer to definitions in the glossary at the end of the paper.}

Garlic is so toxic. It is a specific poison for higher-life forms and brain cells.

The reason garlic* is so toxic is that it contains the sulphone* hydroxyl* ion that penetrates the blood-brain barrier, just like DMSO [a sulfoxide*], and this sulphone hydroxl ion is a specific poison for higher-life forms and brain cells. We discovered this, much to our horror, when I (Bob Beck, DSc) was a manufacturer of EEG [electroencephalography*] equipment.

We’d have people in our testing programs come back from lunch and we would find that their brains looked clinically dead on an encephalograph, which we used to calibrate their progress. We would ask, “Well, what happened?” They would say, “Well, I went to an Italian restaurant and there was some garlic in my salad dressing!” So we had them sign things that they wouldn’t touch garlic before classes or we were wasting their time, their money and my time.

Maybe some of you … are pilots or have been in flight tests… I was in flight test engineering in Doc Hallan’s group in the 1950s. The flight surgeon would come around every month and remind all of us: “Don’t you dare touch any garlic 72 hours before you fly one of our airplanes, because it’ll double or triple your reaction time. You’re three times slower in your reaction time than you would be if you’d not had a few drops of garlic.”

Well, we didn’t know why for 20 years later, until we were using electroencephalograph equipment and we found out that garlic usually desynchronises your brain waves. This means it makes your alpha waves go away and replaces it them with beta waves, which then make you tense and anxious.

So I funded a study at Stanford University and, sure enough, they found that it’s a poison. You can rub a clove of garlic on your foot – you can smell it shortly later on your wrists. So it penetrates the body. This is why DMSO smells a lot like garlic: that sulphone hydroxyl ion penetrates all the barriers including the corpus callosum* in the brain.

Any of you who are organic gardeners know that if you don’t want to use DDT, garlic will kill anything in the way of insects.

Now, most people have heard most of their lives garlic is good for you, and we put those people in the same class of ignorance as the mothers who at the turn of the century would buy morphine in the form of morphine sulphate in the drugstore and give it to their babies to put them to sleep. Yes morphine was legal over the counter back then.

If you have any patients who have low-grade headaches or attention deficit disorder or they can’t quite focus on the computer in the afternoon, just do an experiment – you owe it to yourselves. Take these people off garlic and see how much better they get, very very shortly.

And then let them eat a little garlic after about three weeks. They’ll say “My God, I had no idea that this was the cause of our problems.” And this includes the de-skunked garlics, Kyolic, some of the other products.
For garlic fanatics this is makes me very unpopular, but I’ve got to tell you the truth.

Reference & Glossary

Corpus callosum

A broad band of nerve fibers joining the two hemispheres of the brain.

Electroencephalography

Technique for recording and interpreting the electrical activity of the brain. The nerve cells of the brain generate electrical impulses that fluctuate rhythmically in distinct patterns. In 1929 Hans Berger of Germany developed an electroencephalograph, an instrument that measures and records these brain wave patterns. The recording produced by such an instrument is called an electroencephalogram, commonly abbreviated EEG.Electroencephalography provides a means of studying how the brain works and of tracing connections between one part of the central nervous system and another.

Garlic

(Species Allium sativum) contains about 0.1 percent essential oil, the principal components of which are diallyl disulfide, diallyl trisulfide, and allyl propyl disulfide.

Hydroxyl

Of or denoting the radical -OH, present in alcohols and many other organic compounds: a hydroxyl group.

Sulfoxide

Also called SULPHOXIDE, any of a class of organic compounds containing sulfur and oxygen and having the general formula (RR’) SO, in which R and R’ are a grouping of carbon and hydrogen atoms. The sulfoxides are good solvents for salts and polar compounds.The best-known sulfoxide is dimethyl (or methyl) sulfoxide (DMSO), which is prepared by aerial oxidation of dimethyl sulfide (a by-product of paper manufacture) in the presence of nitrogen dioxide. DMSO is used as a solvent in a wide variety of industrial processes, including the manufacture of polyacrylonitrile fibres, the extraction of aromatic hydrocarbons from refinery streams, the manufacture of certain pesticides, for industrial cleaning, and for paint stripping. It is also used as a solvent for drugs and antitoxins applied topically. The last use is based on its remarkable ability to penetrate animal tissues.Dimethyl sulfoxide is a colourless and odourless liquid, boiling at 189 C (372 F). It is miscible in all proportions with water, alcohol, and most organic solvents.


Sulphone (in the US, known as sulfone)An organic compound containing a sulphonyl group linking two organic groups

Moodscale testing & review

One of the tests trainees participate in during training. The scale can yield measures of different moods that the trainee might not be aware of.

Neurofeedback Training Raw EEG & Integrated Amplitude

Close review with Trainer of the trainees recorded brainwaves.

Available Hemi Coherence Channel Triples

Hemi Coherence is the review of how coherent, balanced and integrated the different parts of the brain are.

Available Hemi Coherence Channel Pairs

Hemi Coherence is the review of how coherent, balanced and integrated the different parts of the brain are.

Channels Provided in Theta

These are the channels that are progressively added and monitored throughout your selected training program.

Channels Provided in Alpha Feedback

These are the channels that are progressively added and monitored throughout your selected training program.

Channels of EEG Information

An electroencephalogram (EEG) is a test that detects electrical activity in your brain using small, metal discs (electrodes) attached to your scalp. Your brain cells communicate via electrical impulses and are active all the time, even when you’re asleep. This activity shows up as wavy lines on an EEG recording.

Premium Double 7 day Training

The 7-Day Premium Double training provides double the amount of Neurofeedback training time as the 7-Day Premium Training. The 7-Day Premium Alpha One Training has been scientifically proven to deliver significant beneficial results including continued improvement after the Training. The 7-Day Premium Double is an intense experience that enhances the experience of the Trainees and maximizes the results. In addition to providing double the Neurofeedback training time as the Premium 7-Day training, the Premium Double offers a gradual increase in the number of EEG head sites that the Trainee is given Neurofeedback. So the Premium Double gives double the amount of time in the feedback chamber and it works up to double the number of head sites at which the trainee is given feedback.

Premium 7 day Training

The Biocybernaut Premium is the 7-day training program that is the core Biocybernaut offering and with which all of our scientific papers have been produced. The 7-Day Alpha One Training is scientifically proven in peer-reviewed scientific publications, to deliver significant beneficial results to the Trainee, including the Trainee’s continued improvement after leaving the Training.

5 Day Intensive

This Training is based on the Premium Double 7-Day Training. It is for those people who cannot find the time to get away for the full 7-Day Training. The Trainee will experience neurofeedback training twice a day and will have an incremental increase on the head sites they will receive feedback.
