Question New to forum ich-garlic question

Hello everyone!
I am new to this forum. I have a 55 gallon tank with two filters. I have 9 juvenile cichlids. One peacock??, one kenyi, two yellow labs, two red zebras, one jewel, and two demasoni. I am currently battling ich in my tank. I am using the high temp and salt method. In researching ich, I ran across some infomation that said garlic helps with parasites. Has anyone heard of this? I found a product called seachem garlic that you soak the food in, but was wondering if I could give them fresh garlic? Any information would be greatly appreciated. I have not had my fish long, but already have become very attached to them.
