I just want to say that ginger has almost completely gotten rid of the pain and inflammation I have from a bunion and general stiffness I have.
Of course you need to take it regularly, or the pain etc. comes back. I am on the go and work out of town, so a great solution for me is to keep candied ginger with me. (Not ginger candy) I eat a couple of pieces a couple of times a day. Some people may be concerned with sugar content, but this is good on the go solution for me.
