The only thing I have heard of are a couple meds that are arguably ineffective and arguably not 100% safe. Other than that fresh pressed garlic added to the food could kill the white spot for you. I have heard New Life Spectrum Thera+A can also treat white spot.

I am using the juice from fresh garlic and soaking my flakes and mysis. Are you suggesting to actually put bits of garlic in aswell?

No, what you are doing is the best way to do it.

Every meal until at least two weeks after all symptoms are gone.

you do know that garlic does nothing to kill ich or the ich cycle?. As long as there is a host, you'll have ich. No sense telling you why it happened, you answered that in your first post.

IMO you best get one and go FOWLR or you and your fish are in for a long sad trip

You do realize most fish tanks have ich right? The garlic boosts the fishes immune system, allowing it to fend off the ich.

Garlic doesn't boost the immune system. Allicin (chemical in freshly pressed garlic) has been demonstrated to actively kill parasites. Some hobbyists have only added this and watched the white spot go away.
