Onions and Garlic: Health Tonics or Subtle Toxins? Plants of the Allium Genus and Their Role in Medicine, Ritual, and Spirituality

Onion and garlic are poorly regarded in the worlds of yoga and Ayurveda. So often you hear things like “Ayurveda says not to eat onions or garlic.” But is this actually true? This seminar takes a thorough look at Allium plants, especially onion and garlic. It covers their phytochemistry, modern research on their health effects, and their role in traditional diets and medicine and in folklore, ritual, and spirituality. The goal is to provide a more nuanced perspective on onion and garlic and their appropriate use as food and medicine.
