Re: Ginger Can Reduce Nausea From Chemotherapy

Isn't this great news? I am always in favor of a natural approach before a chemical approach. Thanks for posting this good information.

Re: Ginger Can Reduce Nausea From Chemotherapy

Ginger has been used for motion sickness for years with great results.  Why do we not see more natural remedies advertised? 
Drug manufacturers don't reap the monetary benefits. (Patent cannot be established.) 
It is not scientific proven, widely enough.
Advertising campaigns are limited due to the high cost.
Sure does not seem right, does it?
All my best wishes,
Marion

Re: Ginger Can Reduce Nausea From Chemotherapy

I bring ginger tea with me to chemo and have a cup the morning after also.  I'm not sure if it's the ginger that is helping, but I don't have to take any anti nausea meds.  I'll take ginger over steroids any day!

Well, I will probably start chemo next week and by tomorrow I will have a supply of ginger laid in. Sounds much better than "another medicine".
