Yesterday I had a headache that just wouldn't quit. It was a combination of an allergy and tension headache. It was building since the weekend and my usual preventative methods was not working. -Ibuprofen, Essential Oils, Hot shower, Ice pack, Saline spray & Allergy pills. Now I was hungry but nauseous from the pain and the thought of eating wasn't appealing. It was time to try something different.

Mom watches Dr Oz. daily and I recall an episode on headaches and the benefits of Ginger. Ginger is a very warming spice when taken internally. It's soothing when you are sick for this reason. I am a huge coffee drinker but did I want to add ginger? I went for the green tea for the antioxidants instead. It wasn't terrible with a spoonful of local unfiltered honey. I do recommend using a pinch and working your way to 1/3 teaspoon. Fresh is best but ground ginger will also work.

Thirty minutes after having my ginger tea, hot sauce sandwich and one Tylenol I was a new woman.

Information from Dr Oz, Health Diaries  & LivingStrong on Ginger. Decide for yourself and try some in your hot drink or food.

What does Ginger do for you?
