    Garlic causing sore throat?

    Okay so frequently when I eat garlic I end up getting a sore throat and occasionally a cough. Any idea of what's going on? I would hate to give up garlic.

    Never heard of that. I'd hate to give up garlic too. Vampires and werewolves and all.

    Garlic can do no wrong. There must be some other explanation.

    Any chance you are eating garlic that has a bit of mildew on it? If so, you could be allergic to the mildew and be reacting to that. If you get a brown, greyish, or bluish tinge on the outer leaves you could have downy mildew on the garlic.
    Using low lectin/nightshade free primal to control autoimmune arthritis. (And lost 50 lbs along the way )

    I don't think so. It happens with both granulated garlic (the spice) and the fresh stuff. Plus the leftover garlic looks perfectly fine.

    I've read here & there to avoid garlic. I have not been convinced but there seems to be something in it that's triggering a reaction with you... whether it's some sort of allergic reaction to the garlic itself or some sort of herxheimer reaction it's hard to tell.

    The below might be of interest, but I'd be interested to read what other, more experienced folk tell you...

    That actually seems about right for explaining my circumstances. New question: after I go take the garlic off of my ribs what should I replace it with?

    Hmmm... ginger? And IMO Thyme goes great with meat, too.

    I'm out of both. Perhaps I'll just eat them plain. With a side of blueberries and tea to drink.
