Arthritis Remedy: Ginger Root/Mint tea. I have found that making tea out of ginger root and mint is more helpful than any capsules. Take about a 1 1/2 inch piece of fresh ginger root, peel and then slice root into mug, add some fresh mint leaves, pour good boiling water over and steep at least 1/2 hour (the longer the better) drink before you retire for the night. This not only helps with the joint pain but has also helped me sleep more sound. The mint is important as it helps the stomach - ginger root tea alone can be a bit difficult if one is no longer 20 . This is an acquired taste. DO NOT get carried away like I did the first week and drink more than one huge mug a night. As my Chinese Dr. friend said "it is like listerine for the body". Cleans out the toxins and it is a natural anti inflammatory. Katherine

Whenever my family and I are ill with nausea or sick stomach I give them a ginger root pill. Symptoms are completely gone within 30 minutes and don't return for at least 8 hours! Usually 2-3 capsules in all it takes and you are symptom FREE!!! I make my own remedy by buying the powder by bulk and encapsulating them myself. The ginger root pills in the store might work however we haven't tried them yet. This is also works great to relieve my fibromyalgia! My niece takes these also for pregnancy sickness however there has been an issue arise lately relating to miscarriages. So further research should be studied before self adminisration for the expecting mothers and ginger root.

a friend of mine had chronic sore throat and couldn't speak. she was due to give a lecture the following day.. i got a small piece of ginger (about the size of half a thumb) and sliced the ginger into fine pieces. put it in a pot & added a glass of water, boiled it down to 1/4 glass of water. once slightly cooled I added honey and squeezed in a teaspoon full of lemon juice. gave this concentrated liquid to my friend,. believe it or not, the next day the sore throat was completely gone.. she couldn't believe it too.. as she was resigned to canceling the talk...

I have suffered from very bad arthritis for some years and also osteoporosis of the spine. I used to dread winters even though I was prescribed antiinflamatory pills and painkillers by my doctor. I recently discovered ginger root (I found a newspaper article about ginger that I had put away some years ago) and have been taking it for about 3 weeks now in capsule form from the health food shop. The stiffness has gone from my joints and spine and most of the pain which is gradually disappearing. In fact, the other day I realized that I didn't have any pain or stiffness at all. It is such a great remedy that I am recommending it to everybody I know who has arthritis.

I have been using ginger for years it is the best expectorant, releasing mucus which holds the germs in our bodies. Ginger brings it up.. do not swallow or you will just be swallowing the germs ginger is trying to expel.let it go or your bronchial will not clear well.Its also great for upset or nervous stomachs.

I thoroughly chew and swallow a 1-2 inch piece of fresh ginger root anytime my stomach is upset. It relieves any pain or discomfort within an hour. I've started eating it every day, just because I feel better when I do!! Ginger is a gift from God!
