wolfjan, can you add a lot more ginger root to your brew and still be able to cook it without burning through the liquid? I've actually eaten straight ginger root. It's one of my favorite spices and VERY good for a number of things. It's just a little harsh on the stomach straight, gives a burn like hard alcohol, for those who don't know.

That's why I started out with that amount. My goal was to EASE discomfort. It depends how you tolerate the ginger. But that abount worked for my dad, he had radiation AND chemo before he decided "enough".

I will have to go and research it, but there is something about people with type O bLood getting stomach problems more easily.


Interesting, didn't know that. I seriously need to make a medical grimoire for all this stuff.

Look up the Genotype Diet. You can probably get It cheap at Amazon.

I didn't know about the Type O thing either.
I'm type O, but not sure if I'm (-) or (+). I think I'm (-) though. (Universal donor)

I've tried poppy seed tea, (for pain) but it's very foul stuff. The oils are nauseating. Ugh, enough to make you gag, actually.
Now, poppy tea, that's a different animal, but you won't find me blabbing about that on a public forum area! :naughty: lol

Me is an O+ like quite a few others here, ginger is excellent, though some people feel peppermint or chamomile helps the stomach more, need to see what suits

I also take a course of acidophlius after antibiotics which helps repopulate the gut with good bacteria

I soo understand the tooth pain, one of tooth's nerve died and the pain was excruciating, I had to use painkillers, though the pain would wake me up in the middle of the night, when the medication wore off...

I only used the painkillers for a few days if I hadn't I think I might have bitten someone lol (raging from the pain)

Glad it's better now x

PEACE....

That might explain why I'm sick to my stomach almost all of the time! A doctor once told me that I'll always react to medications with nausea and vomiting, but I didn't know why. My husband just makes jokes about my "delicate stomach" because I often have to run for the bathroom when I'm out shopping. Maybe I ought to look into carrying ginger drops with me instead of peppermints... the syrup is easier for me to handle then peppermint tea is, and chamomile tastes so bad to me that it just makes me go :vomit:.

I hope it is not too much information.


No, not at all. I already do a lot of that - the laundry is done that way because I'm allergic to lavendar (of all things) and we have dreamcatchers over all of the beds and such. I'll definitely try everything else you've suggested! His seizures have caused a lot of problems... they're centralized in an area of his brain that affects speech, and he'll often skip words while talking now because of uncontrolled seizures in the past... he's ran into (and through!) a supermarket... broken bones... had heart problems... etc. He hasn't been in ICU for nearly two years now, thankfully, and works from home so that I can take care of him. Things tend to turn out badly if he has them anywhere else. Thankfully, it's very easy to feel when he's about to have one... otherwise, I don't want to know what might happen. :-\

I use Altoid ginger drops for stomach upset. It works really well.

Jan, I wanted to let you know that your remedy works great for epileptics.

My husband had a typical tonic-clonic seizure earlier tonight, threw up once as soon as he came to, drank a glass of your syrup and some tepid water when I gave it to him, fell into a postictal sleep that lasted only fifteen minutes (instead of the eight hours it ends up being with Phenergan), then got up and asked for some more of the syrup in a glass of ice water.

He told me to tell you that using the syrup as a sweetener and flavoring in chamomile tea at night might help people who are having problems getting to sleep because of stomach upset. I don't like chamomile, and I don't know if that would even work (the man eats chili sandwiches - chili on top of bread slathered with mayo - so you can't always trust what he thinks might taste good).

Okay, so, I've passed along my message and his. Thanks again for the wonderful recipe!

Oh - I found out what it is about people with O-type blood. They're more prone to ulcers, from what I've read. Maybe that's what you meant?

For the tooth pain: a drop or two of Clove oil (neat) on a piece of cotton, applied directly to the affected area for about 10 minutes. Tastes awful but works well. For the infection: rinse with 5 drops of Myrrh tincture in a half glass of water 4 times a day.

For the chemo patient: all the suggestions for keeping the skin comfortable are great. To counteract the toxic effects of the chemo, one cup of a tea made from alfalfa and red clover 3 times a day. Both are extremely nourishing and will help clean the chemicals out of the body more quickly.

I've learned that she won't be going through chemo or radiation. The tumors in her lungs are growing at the rate of 1mm per month and are now 1cm in size... the doctors can't remove them because there are too many of them. She's going start an experimental drug that might shrink the tumors, but I don't know how that will make her feel.... do you think that the tea might help since the pill is basically going to destroy something in her body? It doesn't seem to me as if it will be any easier than chemo. :-\

I'd need to know which drug she's taking/going to take. Alfalfa is reasonably safe for anything in small doses but red clover does have some herb/drug interactions.

Clove oil is a good tooth number, very good actually. But If i was in you shoes I would be taking some super strength pain killers from my GP.


Just wanted to pop in one of my mums ones - I see you can buy clove oil now, she used to use an actual clove either chewed in the mouth (to release the oil) or crushed and set into the tooth and topped with cotton wool soaked in whiskey.

I am sure the oil would be easier to work with - but just wanted to get this chestnut in here - and I am sure everyone has cloves lying around for sticking in oranges to make punch - just me then? ! :chakrahearts:
