Ginger Benefits

A COMMON SIDE EFFECT OF CHEMOTHERAPY IS NAUSEA.... BUT RESEARCHERS ARE FINDING A COMMON SPICE, GINGER, CAN MAKE A BIG DIFFERENCE.
DOCTORS SAY GINGER IS SOMETHING EVERYBODY HAS ACCESS TO AND CAN SUPPLEMENT PRESCRIPTION MEDICATIONS.
NOW SCIENTISTS ARE LOOKING AT THE SPICE AS A PRIMARY TREATMENT FOR CHEMO RELATED NAUSEA.
IN A NEW STUDY HUNDREDS OF CANCER PATIENTS WERE GIVEN SPECIALLY FORMULATED GINGER PILLS FOR THREE DAYS BEFORE AND AFTER THEIR CHEMO TREATMENTS.
RESEARCHERS WERE SURPRISED AT HOW WELL THEY WORKED.
OVERALL, STUDY PARTICIPANTS REPORTED ABOUT A 40 PERCENT IMPROVEMENT IN THEIR NAUSEA.
ANOTHER ROUND OF RESEARCH IS PLANNED BEFORE SCIENTISTS SEEK F-D-A APPROVAL.
SIDE EFFECTS FROM GINGER ARE RARE, BUT EXPERTS SAY PATIENTS SHOULD TALK TO THEIR DOCTOR BEFORE TRYING IT.
