    I love ginger, be it ginger ale, ginger soy or ginger snap cookies. Now that I have been diagnosed with type II diabetes, I have to go sugar free, but I still have my ginger ale!

    Love ginger tea for nausea. Works better than Compazine and no drowsiness.

    Love ginger too! Of course, I became allergic to it and it now gives me migraines…

    A combination of ginger and feverfew can work as well as Rx.
