Garlic and onion are members of the same plant family. The falvours and smells come from the oils in the plant, and it is these oils and compounds in them that you are allergic to. They can be quite pungent (hence the strong flavours).

These compounds can be affected by heating them (e.g. in cooking) - they break down and also change chemically. The changed chemicals may also not affect your allergies as much.

So do you know if it is just raw garlic and onion you are allergic to? How about well-cooked garlic and onion?
ZepOz last decade
It is any type of garlic and onion. I knew they were in the same family. I have even had breathing problems from someone making soup with onions in it.

ooops wasnt finished...*lol* I have to carefully read any package. They also slip it in if it says *spices* I rarely eat at a restaurant unless I know the owner and they prepare the food without any seasonings. Even the small amounts in seasoned salts will cause me problems

There is a way to overcome your allergy.You can prepare a homeopathic remedy from first garlic and take it for 10 days.Then give a break of 15 days and then do the same for the onion.Then cook some vegetables with garlic and onion in them and see if the allergy has gone away.Most likely it will go away.Don't forget to report whether you were successful in conquering these allergies or not.

To make the garlic remedy, crush a garlic bulb and add 2-3 drops of the garlic juice to 600-700 ml of water.Bang the bottle 100 times against your palm or an old book.Then take one teaspoonful as a dose.For subsequent doses, bang the bottle 10 times before each dose.Take it two times a day for 10 days.After a few days of this period cook something with garlic in it and eat to see if the allergy has gone away or reduced in intensity.If the allergy has not gone completely but reduced in intensity, then take the garlic remedy for another week.

Do the same with the onion to make the onion allergy remedy.This technique is called tautopathy and is a established part of homeopathy now.It works in most cases.

Why don't you try it and let us know if it workes with you?

That is a 1C dilution you are describing, Rajiv.

Also, since the juice is mostly oil, can I suggest simply using a bottle with a lid, and just shaking it thoroughly before taking the remedy? That way, the oil won't float on top but will be mixed in well.
ZepOz last decade
What i have suggested works in most cases and that is what matters.Just shaking the bottle vigorously is not enough as for proper succussion to take place, it is important to hit the bottle against the something slightly elastic.100 succussions are enough to activate the homeopathic energy from the garlic or onion juice.10 succussions before each subsequent dose changes the potency marginally upwards.

The potency achieved by this method is close to 2C or 3C (approximately).


rajivprasad last decade
I will try this. I am waiting for the weekend so I can someone else prepare it. I cant touch or smell garlic or onion. It requires the use of an epipen because it closes off my throat. I'll let you know how it works...J

Your medicine is Phosphorus . you are advise to take Phosphours 200 daily one dose early in the morning empty stomach and it will continue. I require some mental symptom for that I posted for detail. Ok. but you will continue the phosphorus and I hope that you will must get the result.

A 2C or 3C dilution is actually identical to an extremely weak herbal tonic or tea based on the original MT.

And Rajiv, please explain to me in detail how shaking the bottle without bumping is not going to activate the homeopathic energy, whereas shaking it WITH bumping will. I stand to be educated on this.

Thank you.

Dr. Sharma did you get my email??? I wanted to email you the reply to those questions...a little embarassed to post them here...thank you again...J

Dear Zep,

I participate on this forum with a view to help the people desperate for help to their health problems.I suggested what i thought is a possible solution based on my personal experience of succesfully treating such allergies quite a few times.

I neither have the time nor the inclination to engage in pointless debates or discussions with sceptics.I know that what i suggested works in many cases and it is now up to the patient to try or not try the suggestion.I have no other interest in this thread.

rajivprasad last decade

So you are not interested in educating people who ask for your knowledge? I have been informed that is what this forum is all about... So I ask a reasonable question and what happens: you are rude to me.

Are you really only interested in dispensing advice, but not interested in any discussion or justification for your decisions?

That is rather sad, don't you think?
ZepOz last decade
No, i don't think so.Every professional has constraints of time.Me included.I would rather use it for helping people on this forum or discussing with fellow homeopaths in order to learn from each other's experiences.You are neither a patient nor a homeopath.So, you do not qualify as a person of interest to me.I have a free choice like any other member of the forum.

I don't think i have been rude to you.To exercise one's free choice and to save one's time is not being rude.

rajivprasad last decade

So you are not being rude to me, but you WILL turn your back on me and actively ignore me.

And I MAKE time to be here to try to learn what I can from you and try to discuss things as politely, as I think it is important we all try to get some common ground and move forward. But you can't find a few minutes to talk.

Do you treat your patients like this?
ZepOz last decade
Dear Zep,

If i start thinking in terms of turning my back on every person with whom i do not engage in discussions, then what kind of thought process would that be.Won't it be a reactive one?Well, i am a proactive person who likes to choose and create situations than to react to them.I think of it as a strength of mine rather than a weakness.

Now coming to the point of learning etc. from me, i don't think i am qualified to teach a person who has claimed elsewhere on this forum to have read the Organon thoroughly and that too in German.I suggest that you revisit that book and all your questions regarding homeopathy would be answered by the Master (Hahnemann) himself.Homeopathy being based on an universal law (Likes cure Likes), its fundamentals have not changed much with time.

All the best for your study of Homeopathy.But one uninvited suggestion from my side.Read this time with an open mind and heart and not as a sceptic.Also apply homeopathic remedies for some of your ailments or those of your family members and test for yourself whether it works or not.A first hand experience is worth the knowledge of all the books in the world put together.

rajivprasad last decade
Spot on, Rajiv.

You are doing great.

Just ignore the skeptics.

Has anyone boiled the onions and garlic and then used them with the successful result of not having an allergic reaction? My thought behind this is the denaturing of phytochemicals, particularly the flavonoid, quercetin. However, I'm really desparate to find a way to use the vegetable but minus the allegic reaction it causes a friend of mine. The part that is hard to understand is that quercetin's antihistamine action may help to relieve allergic symptoms and asthma symptoms is considered to benefit, however, my friend says that she has eaten so much raw onion and garlic that she now is allergic to them.
I would be interested in anyone's valuable point of view.
trumpetflower last decade
I think eating too much onion and garlic is actually how I acquired this problem. I know when I was as young as 3, my mother baked garlic, kept it in a jar with salt in the refrigerator and I used to eat them all the time. This allergy had a sudden onset. I have read the posts on here , but I am afraid to try them. I'm still trying to build up my courage. If anyone tries it let me know....Redd

Upendra1781 9 years ago
I am allergic to garlic and I tried the remedy given by rajivprasadji..it gave me a severe itch in hands and face .please suggest what should I do because earlier this symptom was not there ...garlic used to give me hot flushes .....I am also allergic to gluten and asoefitida...which also give me joint pain and hot flushes like garlic but the itch never was there with these other things ...kindly suggest what I should do...I shall be very thankful for any suggestions

Wait a couple weeks and see if the itch subsides and you feel better.
The protocol taken may have been too potent due to your sensitivity .it should wear off.

Due to your other allergies you should first see an md and get a CBC
Complete blood test and liver enzyme test and discuss with your dr.
About correct diagnosis to rule out
Things and get real facts. Then a homeopath can take your case in detail to help you.

Take a dose of nux vomica 200c
After sunset. 4 pills or two drops in a couple tablespoons of water . No food or drink half hour before or after.

Nux clears overdoses of too much of anything. See how this effects after 24 hours.
simone717 4 years ago
Thank you Simone so much for responding ...I was advised to take phosphorus200 as a single dose .I took it this evening only .. Will wait and see if the itch subsides after this.. Last night 3am i had suddenly a very severe itch.. Had to take Allegra again...I will let you know if phosphorus 200 helped out not .. will try Nux vom 200 if you suggest if phosphorus doesn't help. . Thank you so much Simone..I really appreciate your help
