“G” is a quilt from the sub-series “Lemon- Aide with a Twist of Lyme” part of the “52 Yarns of Lyme – The Lyme Dis-Ease Series by Susan L. Jaenen-Griffin. Included in the sub-series are 26 quilts that utilize over 75 different techniques. I created these quilts while attempting to relearn the techniques that I had lost because of Lyme. Each quilt refers to myriad of treatments that I was undergoing at the time I created them. The following is the artist statement for the quilt “G”
“Garlic (Allium sativum), Ginger (Zingiber officinale), Glutathione”
Garlic is considered to be nutritionally complete with minerals, trace elements, provitamins, fiber and essential oils. Its anti-bacterial properties cover a wide range of gram positive and negative bacteria. It is also a strong natural antibiotic, anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial and anti-spasmodic. The rhizome of Zingiber officinale has pain relieving properties, digestive benefits and enzyme actions. It is anti-inflammatory, anti-parasitic, antimicrobial, anti-arthritic and an antioxidant. It has the potential to prevent Lyme carditis. The antioxidant action of glutathione removes the endotoxins secreted by spirochetes.
