According to Ayurveda, India's classic medical science, foods are grouped into three categories - sattvic, rajasic and tamasic - foods in the modes of goodness, passion and ignorance. Onions and garlic, and the other alliaceous plants are classified as rajasic and tamasic, which means that they increase passion and ignorance.
Those that subscribe to pure brahmana-style cooking of India, including myself, and Vaishnavas - followers of Lord Vishnu, Rama and Krishna - like to only cook with foods from the sattvic category. These foods include fresh fruits, vegetables and herbs, dairy products, grains and legumes, and so on. Specifically, Vaisnavas do not like to cook with rajasic or tamasic foods because they are unfit to offer to the Deity.
Rajasic and tamasic foods are also not used because they are detrimental to meditation and devotions. "Garlic and onions are both rajasic and tamasic, and are forbidden to yogis because they root the consciousness more firmly in the body", says well-known authority on Ayurveda, Dr. Robert E. Svoboda.
Some branches of western medicine say that the Alliums have specific health benefits; garlic is respected, at least in allopathic medical circles, as a natural antibiotic. In recent years, while the apparent cardiovascular implications of vegetable Alliums has been studied in some detail, the clinical implications of onion and garlic consumption from this point of view are still not well understood.
Nevertheless, there are still many adverse things to say about garlic and onions. Not so well known is the fact that garlic in the raw state can carry harmful (potentially fatal) botulism bacteria. Perhaps it is with an awareness of this that the Roman poet Horace wrote of garlic that it is “more harmful than hemlock".
It should be pointed out that Garlic and onion are avoided by spiritual adherents because they stimulate the central nervous system, and can disturb vows of celibacy. Garlic is a natural aphrodisiac. Ayurveda suggests that it is a tonic for loss of sexual power from any cause, sexual debility, impotency from over-indulgence in s** and nervous exhaustion from dissipating sexual habits. It is said to be especially useful to old men of high nervous tension and diminishing sexual power.
The Taoists realized thousands of years ago that plants of the alliaceous family were detrimental to humans in their healthy state. In his writings, one sage Tsang-Tsze described the Alliums as the "five fragrant or spicy scented vegetables" - that each have a detrimental effect on one of the following five organs - liver, spleen, lungs, kidneys, and heart. Specifically, onions are harmful to the lungs, garlic to the heart, leeks to the spleen, chives to the liver and spring onions to the Kidneys

Specifically, onions are harmful to the lungs, garlic to the heart, leeks to the spleen, chives to the liver and spring onions to the kidneys.
Tsang-Tsze said that these pungent vegetables contain five different kinds of enzymes which cause "reactions of repulsive breath, extra-foul odour from perspiration and bowel movements, and lead to lewd indulgences, enhance agitations, anxieties and aggressiveness," especially when eaten raw.
Similar things are described in Ayurveda. 'As well as producing offensive breath and body odour, these (alliaceous) plants induce aggravation, agitation, anxiety and aggression. Thus they are harmful physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually'.
Back in the 1980's, in his research on human brain function, Dr Robert [Bob] C. Beck, DSc. found that garlic has a detrimental effect on the brain. He found that in fact garlic is toxic to humans because its sulphone hydroxyl ions penetrate the blood-brain barrier and are poisonous to brain cells.
Dr. Beck explained that as far back as the 1950s it was known that garlic reduced reaction time by two to three times when consumed by pilots taking flight tests. This is because the toxic effects of garlic desynchronize brain waves. "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 than you would be if you'd [not] had a few drops of garlic."
For precisely the same reason the garlic family of plants has been widely recognized as being harmful to dogs.
Even when garlic is used as food in Chinese culture it is considered harmful to the stomach, liver and eyes, and a cause of dizziness and scattered energy when consumed in immoderate amounts.
Nor is garlic always seen as having entirely beneficial properties in Western cooking and medicine. It is widely accepted among health care professionals that, as well as killing harmful bacteria, garlic also destroys beneficial bacteria, which are essential to the proper functioning of the digestive system.
Reiki practitioners explain that garlic and onions are among the first substances to be expelled from a person’s system – along with tobacco, alcohol and pharmaceutical medications. This makes it apparent that alliaceous plants have a negative effect on the human body and should be avoided for health reasons.
Homeopathic medicine comes to the same conclusion when it recognizes that red onion produces a dry cough, watery eyes, sneezing, runny nose and other familiar cold-related symptoms when consumed.
These are just some of the reasons I avoid leeks, chives, shallots, garlic and onions and mushrooms
My Verdict: INSTEAD OF ONIONS AND GARLIC GO FOR ORGANIC GINGER AND ORGANIC TURMERIC with a touch of organic Black Pepper and it will do you a world of good
Onions, garlic and mushrooms come under the mode of passion and ignorance so should be avoided
The Sikh Temples put a lot of onions and garlic in the langar food they serve daily... Even after 500 years the Sikhs don't know that onions and garlic are in the mode of passion and ignorance so should never be put in the food they serve in the temples ...it's a pity but it shows that they are just plain stupid fools . Instead of knowledge coming before the sword their swords ( Kirpans ) come before knowledge..what a pity as by eating onions and garlic daily the Sikhs are never in the mode of goodness
Garlic promotes good health and helps strengthen the immune system......People with colds, sniffles, flu and stuffy noses won't be able to effect the 1-clove a day garlic enthusiast.....never get colds/flu, myself....
Blessed be the vampire free.....!!
Like explained in the video garlic and onions is ok to be used for their medicinal qualities ...only for that reason but not to be used daily and frequently ..so really once in a blue moon you might need onions and garlic but looking at another perceptive you can find alternatives that can have the same medicinal effect as onions and garlic and a lot would prefer this and thus avoid onions and garlic totally
If I were asked to point a "priestly" [lol] finger at food consumers, wagging disapproval, it would be sugar....Sugar causes multiple health problems. Limit carbs too, rice promotes insulin resistance and diabetes....BUT PLEASE DO ENJOY REGULAR GARLIC, IT MAY SAVE YOUR HEALTH.....
I think people should do as their religion believes for peace of mind but I also do not think they should push their religious beliefs on others especially when it comes to good health.
I ave to say this as it's so important. Onions, and garlic have the most powerful auric radiation of any plant fgoods and can be seen by the Kirlian technology.
Also, Maitake Mushrooms will shrink cancerous tumors and all mushrooms will shrink tumors but not as well as the Maitake.
I've known people that swear a clove of garlic a day has kept them from colds and flu for years. I wonder if garlic wouldn't assist in protection from the Coronavirus? It would be worth a try and it willkeep the Masters away. Saint Germain said in "Ascended Master Instruction" a book he channeled through the people that knew him when he was on earth in 1930's or claim to have known him, say he told them never eat onions nor garlic or the Masters would not help them or come hear them... So I sup-pose one would have to choose there.
Because these foods are so important to your good health I felt I had to say this. I do think the AMA and Pharmaceuticals have put out a lot against them to keep you buying OTC cold medicines, etc
Do what your religion tells you if you are religious but please don't try to push it on other people especially when it could mean life or death to a cancer victim..I wish someone had told me about the Maitake Mushrooms years ago. We are responsible for what we say, the law of karma knows no religious boundaries. Do not keep people from doing what could save their lives... A cold can turn into pheumonia and the person die when a clove of garlic could have saved them... think about it.
Why can others bring their religion here and I cannot? So I willo.
Jesus said it wasn't what goes in the mouth that defiles a man but what comes out of it...judgemental words and condemning of others and calling them ignorant over aq clove of garlic?
When ascended beings manifest physically, they may ask us to avoid strong pungent foods, a good 24-hours in advance of rendezvous, which I always do, out of respect for their highly advanced senses and sensitivities. This rule also applies to aftershaves, perfumes, clothes fabric scents, body sprays and even a stronger brand of oral wash....lol ;-]
Garlic is not forbidden by Masters; on and offworld....And it was originally imported to Earth from planet Askal, Tayget system, millennia ago, for medicinal purposes [food is true medicine.]
True about medicines...the Bible has a scripture that the plants are for medicine especially herbs....
But the people that brought forth the Saint Germain teachings (The I AM Society) do forbid the eating of garlic and onions as a very important part of their teachings based on what I quoted. However, the Masters do not always appear visibly in fact seldom do...they mostly contact via telepathy and the PSI senses therefore on those levels they are not cogniznt of aromas on our level here so I don['t see the purpose in forbidding it other than perhaps the channel put their own views in the words of Germain as some often do.
I also do not understnad, because of the very powerful physical effect of those foods that any real Master would forbid the eating of them... and I also think the forbidding of eating any foods is archaic and very unbecoming a master...it's making slaves of mere morftals and mere mortgals are eventually to become as high as any Master...the desire to "Lord it over" poor little humans is soon to stop when more understand that Jesus equalized all humans to himself and taught the way to do so...Romans chanptger 8 telling us we are JOINT HEIRS with jesus… he also told us we could do everything he did and more... if we simply follow his main teachings which are the same as the Buddhas... non-condemnation and non-violence though few do so though they loudlu proclaim they are Christian. It's a shame so many go to religion to see what Jesus taught instead of to the words of Jesus to see what he really taught.
If anything they may laugh at are forgetfulness...Back in 2006 I had teleported aboard Sandara's scoutship and told that my recently machine wash shirt had an excess of fabric oderiser, including amyl cinnamal, citronellol and benzisohthiazolinone, all of which the crew found distracting...
With a smile on her beautiful face, Sandara offered one of two choices, to remedy [the ship hovering at 30,000 ft above the North Sea]
For me to stand fully clothed in a sonic shower for a few minutes, to dissolve the offending molecules...
Or, strip myself down, naked, be given my own metraknen venebu [Sirian jumpsuit uniform,] to wear, on the flight deck. My Earthly garments, with offending chemicals, teleported back to my Suffolk home, minus their former wearer [moi...;-]
What amazed me was that upon returning to the house, several hours later I had expected my clothes to be spread untidily accross the floor, BUT FOUND THEM TIDY, FOLDED WITH CARE, ON THE BED....
Drekx, wouldn't it be better to just transport nude and dress in the transporter room in uniform? That's what I used to do. Val would send the Transport officer on break, bring me up and put his cape around me with all the symbology on it. Then we'd walk down thru the outer Command module to his quarters where I could put on something I had hanging in his closet, and the crew would arise and salute me! They were not saluting Val but me in his cape. Val never required saluting unless in his cape which was sign VIPs were aboard.
Clothes hanging in a closet...? Well, Sirians will remove a small, white disc from a wall opening, alcove and ask you to dress...
Looks like smooth plastic on one side, disc is near an inch, diameter.
On it's reverse side, pale grey matt and sticky...like a suction cup..
You place this on the centre of the chest, it stays in place. Waving a hand over it, you think; "DRESS ME...!!"
Instantly it envelopes my entire body, boots, belt, devices....
Reporting for duty, with regulation attire in field uniform. The robes I'm permitted are totally different and are emerald green, like the Agarthans wear. Ceremonial dress for Earth....
