Is Raw Garlic the missing piece of the AIDS Cure Puzzle?

Conrad LeBeau

For the past year, I have received several emails from readers on our mailing list that attempted to follow portions of “Mary from Brooklyn’s” protocol that has apparently cured her of HIV infection. Most of the protocols focused on the use of black seed and also vitamin D. No one reported the use of a raw garlic clove 3 times a day with meals. It may also be noteworthy that no one has achieved the level of success that Mary achieved – return to a normal CD4/CD8 ratio (1 to 2.5) and flipping the antibody test from pos. to neg.

For some weeks I have been wondering if there was some missing factor in “Mary from Brooklyn” apparent cure that has been overlooked. Over the past several months, several of you have sent me emails detailing self-help treatments, some with, and, some without prescribed HIV drugs.

On November 29th, I talked with a reader from the West Coast who told me interesting story and asked that his name not be used. I will call him John Doe #1. I have talked to John Doe #1 on and off for the past 25 years. He is a male in his 50’s and has been positive and using HIV drugs all this time although having maintained a keen interest in natural remedies. Here is what he told me yesterday.

Like Mary from Brooklyn, John Doe #1 lived in a suburb of New York City. Around 1995 he recalls a conversation with several of his friends who were all HIV+, and about one person in the group (John Doe #2) who was an anomaly as he had practiced unsafe sex for several years with men known to have HIV or AIDS, yet he remained HIV negative. As the discussion went, John Doe #1 asked #2 “what do you attribute your negative status too?” HIs reply – “garlic.” John Doe #1 assumed #2 was eating raw garlic although he never actually said that.

Fifteen years later around 2010, John Doe #1 returned to New York and met No 2 who disclosed to him that he was now HIV positive and had been so for the past 2 years. John Doe #1 said to #2: “I want to ask you one question: did you stop eating garlic?” His reply: “Yes.” 

#1 then said to #2: that is why you are now HIV+. In all those years you practiced unsafe sex, the garlic protected you.”

This conversation occurred between us as he called to give me his new address and the subject of Mary from Brooklyn came up. He asked me what I thought of her success and why no one else had duplicated her results. I told him that I had a hunch that garlic might be the missing part of the AIDS cure puzzle.

On Nov 29 I wrote to more than 70 members of the email group, some live in Nigeria. No one has since replied that they had used raw garlic as part of their protocol. One person asked if garlic tablets from a health food store would work as well. My opinion is that they would not. I personally believe that one clove of raw garlic with Ajeone in it has more anti bacteria, anti-fungal and anti-viral effect than a whole bottle of dried garlic capsules. I did cite a study years ago that aged garlic extract taken at a dose of 5 grams a day helped to significantly improve the CD4/CD8 ratio, a key indicator that the protocol is working.

Scientific Research on Aged Garlic extract and HIV

1989 – The following excerpt is from the Immune Restoration Handbook 3rd end (page 228) quoting from a study on the use of 5 grams daily of an aged garlic extract used in treating 6 Aids patients:

“A study published in the German Medical Journal “Deutsche Zeitshrift” in Oct, 1989 by T.H. Abdullad, D.V. Kirkpatrick and J. Carter, reports on the results of 7 AIDS patients taking 5 grams of garlic daily as an aged extract, similar to Kyolic garlic. They said that 6 of the 7 patients had normal NK cell activity after 6 weeks and that all had normal NK activity after 12 weeks. Five of the 7 had significant improvements in their T4/T8 ratios after 12 weeks with 3 returning to normal reference ranges of 1.0 or higher. They also reported a lessening of diarrhea in one patient with Cryptosporidia, fewer outbreaks of Herpes, Thrush, Candidiasis, and Sinus infections.”  

       Note: in 1989, the only FDA approved drug to treat AIDS was AZT and it did not work for very long. The 1989 article did not indicate that AZT had been used along with the aged garlic extract.

Update: a search I did for this abstract today Dec 2, 2017 at the National Library of Medicine has turned up nothing. My opinion is that someone has removed this study from the NLM. What I did find is a number of titles of abstracts from AIDS magazines and organization funded by big drug companies suggesting that people with AIDS should not use garlic along with prescribed HIV meds. These articles bashing garlic had no abstract attached. I would call this science by soundbite.

While 1989 seems like ancient history, early in the 1990’s, there were also published reports at the NLM (Pubmed) that an aspirin a day was increasing CD4 helper cell counts. Since the introduction of protease inhibitors, not a word has been spoken about these earlier discoveries. My own opinion is that while aged garlic extract has a wide range of health benefits in supporting immune function, it does not have the direct germ and virus killing power of raw garlic. This is because raw garlic, (not aged garlic) has a substance called Ajeone- that will kill bacteria, fungus and viruses including HIV on contact.

Here are a few abstracts on “Ajeone”, the active ingredient in raw garlic

Ajeone, Cancer and the immune system.

A search at the NLM this evening only one word Ajeone yielded 161 scientific studies, a majority of them citing research on Ajeone in the treatment of various types of cancer, and also how it increased IgA production in the intestines of mice. A lot of this research is recent and was published in 2017. It appears that some drug companies, realizing the potential of raw garlic to kill cancer cells, are doing research on synthetic analogues that can be patented and could be very profitably marketed to a vast population infected with cancer. Patented cancer drugs cost $10,000 a month and up while raw garlic would cost pocket change (probably less than $25 a month).

For raw garlic to cure AIDS, it has to penetrate and block HIV activity inside the lymph nodes – the main reservoirs of HIV infection. Possibly some of the sulfur compounds inside garlic may mimic the penetrating effects of Di-Methyl SulfOxide (DMSO). When some people get cured of AIDS and/or cancer by eating raw garlic, the big drug companies would definitely want to hide this information from the public. With millions of dollars continuing to pour into the coffers of politicians in Washington DC, don’t hold your breath that natural remedies like garlic (including black seed, Vitamin D and thousands other natural remedies) that you read about here and elsewhere will get any positive support from politicians or from the mainstream media.

How to use Kratom – the herb that reduces pain, depression and opiate addiction

Nov 17 Update – How to use Kratom – the herb that reduces pain, depression and opiate addiction

Conrad LeBeau.

This is our first post using WordPress. Soon a comment section will follow.

Kratom is grown and imported from southeast Asia. It is a natural pain reliever and is being increasingly used by heroin and cocaine addicts to help them break their addictions. It may also help with alcohol addiction. There are several strains of this herb. An online article explains how to use Kratom although the article does not state that heroin and fentanyl addicts can safely use it to overcome their addiction. If they did, the FDA and DEA gestapo would move in to seize the herbs and remove them from the market. The FDA and DEA actions are protecting the market monopolies of the pharmaceutical Corps. who manufacture narcotics and opiates that are directly contributing to the national health crisis that is taking 175 lives every day.

Conflicts of interest: A Congressional investigation into the link between FDA managers and supervisors and the drug companies that manufacture narcotics is long overdue. At a death rate of 175 victims per day (64,000 per year) from FDA narcotics as well as those smuggled into the US from Mexico, remedial action is overdue. It is obvious that the FDA and the DEA are working for financial benefit of the drug companies and against the public’s best interest. To read more about Kratom and to locate sources to buy online, go to The DEA has already tried to stop the importation of Kratom into the United States.

Six states have made distribution of Kratom illegal according to some search engine web sites. These include my home state of Wisconsin and adjoining Illinois, but not Michigan or Minnesota where Kratom sales are legal. If you live in one of the states where sales of Kratom are illegal, you may not be able to purchase the herb online. You may have to travel to an adjoining state to obtain some for personal use. Although Kratom is an anti-depressant, it is not addictive and not one single death has been reported from its responsible use.

How the DEA could legally classify white sugar and table salt as Class 1 substances making them illegal without a prescription

Under the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) definition of an opiate, white sugar, corn syrup, and table salt could be all classified along with cocaine and heroin as a class 1 substance as these substances have no medical value and are addictive. While the American Medical Assn. has asked the FDA to regulate salt in food claiming nearly 500,000 deaths per year from excess salt consumption, the number of people developing diabetes, obesity and heart disease from white sugar and refined carbohydrates exceeds even that of table salt consumption. I could not think of a faster way to get a revolution started in the streets than to take away the most common addictive substances known to man – sodium chloride (table salt) and sugar.

The states that have made Kratom illegal are depriving their own residents of a herb that is a highly effective against pain, and is an antidepressant as well. There is no evidence that any person has ever died from using Kratom, but there is evidence that pain killers and other drugs approved by the FDA are directly responsible for over 100,000 deaths per year. Politicians and attorneys who side with the FDA and the big drug companies are rewarding major political campaign contributors and all of them have blood on hands. These are fighting words, and they should be fighting words, as government officials that harm people need to called to publicly explain their actions and their bad behavior. Their failure of leadership needs to be investigated and not sugar coated. Corrupt government officials and those with conflicts of interest need to be terminated and replaced with competent and honest public servants.

It has been written that while Nero fiddled, Rome burned. Today, politicians have inherited a mess with the national opioid epidemic that is claiming 175 lives every day. If the politicians along with the FDA, and the DEA continue to listen to the same people who created this mess for personal profit and to please political donors, the bodies will continue to stack up.

FDA protects Big Pharma’s marketing monopolies by nixing Kratom

Note: You can read the FDA’s latest post on Kratom here dated Nov 14, 2017. In this post the FDA stated that some Kratom products have been laced with hydrocodone. Another problem is that the alleged deaths they report have been associated with smoking Kratom to get high. That is not a responsible use for this valuable herb. See for how to use this herb safely and responsibly by making a herbal tea or taking a capsule. These guidelines warn against smoking the herb or buying them from a head shop where they may be contaminated with dangerous FDA approved narcotics or street drugs.

FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb offers the carrot of FDA approval and says no one has come forward to file an application for FDA approval of Kratom. He knows that Kratom like all other natural remedies are not patentable and the one billion dollar price tag for FDA approval of commercial speech for Kratom’s therapeutic uses (including that of any other dietary supplement) are not a recoverable investment.

The FDA has never approved a single herb or plant based remedy in their entire history of approving drugs. They began recording such approvals in 1938 and you can find all of them in a publication called the “Orange Book.” What you will not find in the Orange book are any plant based non-patentable natural remedies, not a one. To claim that the FDA drug application process is a remedy with a viable path to government approval for a natural remedy is a plain lie and is outright dishonest.
