I started taking Ginger recently b/c of its so many benefits.

One way to take it that I found on Youtube is:

1 cup of cut (not finely chopped) Turmeric root
1 cup of cut (not finely chopped) Ginger root

put it into a 1/2 gallon or 1 gallon pot of boiling water, then reduce it to a simmer and
simmer it for 20 minutes.

Pour it into a large glass jar / container through a strainer and it will be a healthy tonic that you can drink 4 ounces at a time or a full glass, or whatever you like.

That's why people drink ginger ale when they're sick. But you have to be careful because only one popular brand even contains ginger! I think it's Canada Dry. And people used to eat candied ginger after a meal as a digestive.

Nothing like ginger to settle an upset or queasy stomach, at least that is what we have found around here.


My mother swears by ginger ale ( probably Canada Dry), but I haven't noticed that this does much for me. Maybe it's the bubbles, but I find it adds to the bloat if I drink it when all is not right with the stomach.

I take ginger for my stomach and it really helps.


I have ginger capsules, and I will also put it into tea if I feel too sick to swallow a pill.

Oh, this goes back a very long time. I remember as a kid my doctor used to tell my parents to give me ginger ale for an upset stomach. This was over 60 years ago. Yes, Canada Dry.

I use both a lot of ginger, and garlic, in everything I cook. Fresh, of course.

Thanks for that info! Yes, sometimes things from the "olden days" prove to be helpful after all.

I knew about the ginger ale because a long time ago, a friend asked me to go out and get her some. She was sick and said that was what her mother always told her. And I know about the candied ginger from clearing out a great aunt's house 25 years ago. I found the ginger and didn't know what it was for so looked it up. In fact, I got in the habit of keeping some in the candy dish. Can't do any harm...well, I guess it must contain sugar, but otherwise not so bad.

In Chinese medicine, I think they always said ginger was "warming." I don't know whether that literally means that it warms you up in winter and is good for cold weather or if it has some other meaning to them. Maybe there's a good reason why we eat gingerbread in the fall and winter?

Ginger is another way to get your blood flowing, helping to warm your extremities and keep away the chills.
