Opened it up…are you with me still? p.s. these are not my manly hands. They are my husbands.
And stuffed all that nasty goodness inside. I closed it on up and swallowed it. P.S. that’s my hand.
It knocked my inflammation out of the park! Who’da thunk that a silly think like Ginger could do that!
Now I just continue to take it as a supplement once a day. Except today, because I woke with my back being a little naughty, so I upped it to 3x’s a day. I’m already feeling better.
TRY IT! You will be amazed at the results.
UPDATE October 2013: It’s about 1 year later and I am still AMAZED at how wonderful this works! Now I just grate about a teaspoon and swallow it whole with a big gulp of water. I’ve stopped using the capsules. Sometimes I’ll go a month without needing it, and then I’ll have days where I’ll double up. We just visited Disneyland as a family, and I was super nervous about all that walking so I took 2 tsp. at night and morning and I felt ZERO inflammation or pain. I’m telling you, this stuff works!
FAQ’S about Ginger:
Q: Does it have to be fresh? Won’t powdered ginger work the same?
A: In my experience, powdered ginger does NOTHING for me. The key here is fresh ginger. I just purchase it about once a month at the store and keep it in my fridge. Totally worth it.
Q: Do I have to stuff it in a capsule? Are there bigger capsules?
A. You don’t have to use a capsule at all, in fact, now I just grab about a teaspoonful and swallow it with a big gulp of water. There are bigger capsules out there, like here.
Q: What is the recommended dosage?
A: I don’t take it every single day, I only take it if I feel stiffness or inflammation and in that case I’ll take 1 teaspoon anywhere from once a day to four times a day. I usually feel a reduction in inflammation and pain-relief within 30-45 minutes.
Q: Does it hurt your stomach? I’m worried that much ginger will give me heartburn?
A: Because ginger is also an anti-emetic (anti-nausea), it is great for the stomach. I’m sure it’s possible to eat too much (just like anything else), so just listen to your body. In my experience, swallowing a whole teaspoonful doesn’t cause me any kind of indigestion or heartburn at all. If you already have heartburn issues, I recommend you read my post on 6 Natural Ways to Stop Heartburn.
