I love the healing power of ginger during these cold winter months! Ginger warms us up by promoting healthy blood circulation throughout the body. This means more oxygen and nutrients can reach your heart and other organs. Ginger reduces inflammation, pain and fever so it is great for colds.
This amazing herb also helps to eliminate nausea due to car motion and morning sickness of pregnancy. Mix 1/2 tsp. ground ginger or 1 to 2 tsp. grated ginger into 1 cup of boiled water to make a cup of ginger tea. If you want to take ginger as a supplement, I recommend taking 500 to 1000 mg per day. Love, Dr. Susan
