Ginger do not just add taste and favor to your food. It is a good form alternative medicine to our ailments. The Chinese have been using it as part of the Traditional Chinese Medicine for centuries.
Jocylen M. from Maryland shared her story:
My acid reflux became really bad when I stopped hormone replacement therapy. Initially, the heartburn suppressing pills worked very well. However, after 2 months I couldn’t stop them without heartburn recurring.
One occasion, I went out to have dinner with my friends at a Korean style restaurant. One of them ordered a drink called persimmon punch- a concentrated cinnamon ginger drink. After taking a few sips, I actually felt excellent.
After 1 month of adding about 3 tablespoons of the cinnamon-ginger drink to my tea in the morning and night, my low density lipoprotein cholesterol levels had dropped 30 points, and the heartburn acid reflux problem was under control.
Unfortunately the cinnamon ginger tea has sugar in it, so a simpler alternative is to add a piece of candied ginger to your tea. The ginger is amazing for heartburn.
Here is a simple recipe that you will like to try:
1 piece of cinnamon
2-3 slices of ginger
A mug of hot water
Let it draw for a little while and it is ready to drink. Keep the spices in the cup, they last for at least 10 hot drinks. It is a very very healthy drink with a good taste.
Alternatively, you can get a packet of ready-made powder cinnamon-ginger that can be found in drugstore.
