My experience with raw garlic was extremely unpleasant. I wonder if anyone can explain? I cut an organic garlic clove in half, chewed it a little & left it on my sore gum for as long as possible. I knew to expect a fierce burn, yikes understatement! I swallowed the garlic pretty quickly as the burn was too intense. Suddenly my head felt like it would explode, it throbbed with severe pain all over, I was in tears, very afraid & almost called an ambulance. It only lasted about 5mins thank goodness. What happened?
