  • LONDON: British scientists have used a 1,000-year-old medical prescription containing onions and garlic to kill dangerous and hardy germs in a laboratory.
  • Research published online in a recent issue of the research journal "Scientific Report" has shown that if onions, garlic, cow's bile (yellowish liquid of the liver) and wine are mixed together to make an ointment. It can easily kill even germs against which even the latest antibiotics (antibiotics) are becoming ineffective.
  • The joint study by the University of Warwick, the University of Central Lancashire and the University of Nottingham examined medical prescriptions and tips from the 1000-year-old book "Balds Leach Book". It is considered one of the earliest medical textbooks in medieval Britain.

  • Although many of the manuscripts and tips contained in this book have proved to be baseless and inaccurate in the light of modern scientific research, experts have also found a few manuscripts from this book that have been found to be somewhat authentic. A study published in 2019 suggested that the Balds Leachbook may contain information that can help kill hard-to-reach germs (bacteria).
  • Continuing the same research, the experts decided to recreate an ointment called "Bald's Eyesalve". Considering the ambiguity in the text of the book and the initial experiments done on it over the years, Prepared 75 different ointments from a mixture of yellowish moisture and wine.
  • Of these, 15 onion ointments and 15 rotten ointments performed best in killing the germs in the petri dish.
  • It should be noted that Staphylococcus aureus and many other such dangerous germs have not only developed resistance to antibiotics in recent years, but this resistance has been steadily increasing, making these drugs ineffective. Are going
  • In the early stages, there is still some recovery, but if these bacteria come together and form a thin membrane (called a 'biofilm'), then antibiotics are needed to break down the membrane and kill the germs. The amount required is at least 500 times higher than normal, which can kill bacteria as well as the patient. That is why sometimes a severely infected organ has to be amputated.

  • During these experiments, the experts found that the onion / dirt and garlic ointment not only killed the bacteria very well individually but also destroyed their biofilms. This is a feature that is not even present in the latest antibiotics.
  • In addition to Staphylococcus aureus, the ointment also successfully eradicated Echinobacter Baumeniae, Stenotrophomonas maltofolia, Stenotrophomonas epidermis, Stenotrophomonas pyogenes and other similar types of bacteria.
  • Experts hope that this ointment will also be very useful in the treatment of diabetic foot ulcers in diabetes because these sores do not heal but spread to the inside which causes the affected patient to have to amputate the leg. ۔ After that, the patient does not live for more than five years.
  • Another finding was that the ingredients in the ointment, when tested separately, were completely ineffective in killing the germs. And they only work great when all the ingredients in the ointment are mixed in the right amounts. In light of this additional discovery, the idea is growing that we need to change our thinking in order to understand traditional herbal medicine.
