Hot flashes. Rotten stomach. Chemo brought them both on and ginger helped. Calming my stomach was easier than I’d anticipated. I settled things with my diet and ginger was a part of that, but the hot flashes and night sweats were another matter all together. They came fast, furious and often. The day my oncology nurse suggested ginger chews was a game changer. I found Organic Crystallized Ginger by The Ginger People and from that day on all the way through chemo I was never without them. They by no means stopped the hot flashes from coming, but popping one in my mouth mid flash helped a lot. The added bonus was the calming effect on my stomach.
The Ginger People are fabulous and not only focus on wonderful flavor but the health benefits and studies on ginger. On their website you will find information on ginger and prostate cancer, ginger and pain receptors, boosting immunity with ginger and much more. I love the Crystalized Ginger and I’m excited about diving into the other products that The Ginger People have to offer.
Ginger was wonderful for me, but as a reminder every body is different and you should always talk with your medial team before making any adjustments to your diet during treatment.
