****I’m aware that this article may rub some people the wrong way. I”m okay with that. If one person feels like this post was helpful, then I’ll be happy!****
***EDIT: GINGER DOES NOT CURE CANCER!!
PLEASE DON’T MISUNDERSTAND THIS POST. IF YOU ARE INTO NATURAL REMEDIES, THEN TRY IT. IF NOT, DON’T. MAYBE YOU COULD USE NATURAL REMEDIES ALONG WITH WESTERN MEDICINE. I NEVER SAID THAT WAS A BAD THING. AND I NEVER SAID I WAS A DOCTOR OR THAT I KNOW IT ALL. I’M LEARNING TOO AND SHARING WHAT I LEARN WITH YOU ALL. USE GINGER AT YOUR OWN RISK. PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE POST AND YOU’LL SEE THAT I NEVER SAID IT CURES CANCER.
I APOLOGIZE TO ANYONE THIS POST OFFENDED.*****
Ginger is something I have been trying to add to my diet more. I’ve always known that ginger was an important herbal medicine that has been used for-practically-EVER to heal certain ailments. But last year I learned that several studies have shown that ginger inhibits certain cancer cells (that does NOT mean it cures cancer.), particularly Ovarian Cancer Cells and Prostate Cancer Cells!! In the study, EVERY SINGLE cancer cell that was exposed to ginger powder died. EVERY. SINGLE. ONE.
YAAAAAS!!! So start putting ginger in every gosh-darn-thing.
No one is really talking about it. I haven’t heard about it on television, although I don’t watch cable television so that may be why! Have you all heard about it?
I haven’t heard that Dr. Oz or The Doctors mentioned it on their show. But…..why would doctors mention it? I know there are some good doctors in this world, but really…..I don’t feel that most of them have our 100% best interests at heart. If there were no sick people, doctors wouldn’t have jobs. If everyone knew that food can be our medicine then things would get bad for doctors…..fast. ****That doesn’t mean you should stop going to the doctor.*****
Soooooo, I’ve decided to tell you all! And I hope you tell everyone you know. Ultimately it’s up to US to take care of ourselves.
Now of course I’m not saying that ginger cures cancer. I’m not saying if you have cancer, or ovarian cysts, there is a 100% percent guarantee that this will solve the problem. Try using natural methods along with your medicine if you want to take that approach. I cured my ovarian cysts just by eating more plant foods and less meat. I didn’t even know about ginger back then. So please don’t twist my words! I’m just giving you the facts. Please do what you will with them!
After drinking your Ginger Mixed Berry Smoothie this Tomato Sandwich with Red Pepper Olive Relish will be a great follow-up meal for lunch. Tomatoes are full of lycopene and beta carotene, which helps protect our eyes.
The Cilantro Curry Marinated Chicken is great because cilantro has a pretty decent amount of potassium and calcium. So for all those who think you can’t get calcium without milk, think again! Plenty of plant foods provide calcium.
I hope you all are as excited as I am about the amazing benefits of Ginger and I do hope you all give these recipes a try!
Health Benefits of These Meals:
- The ginger in my Ginger Mixed Berry Smoothie is a powerful medicine that just might inhibit ovarian and prostate cancer cell growth. Ginger would be great to use in addition to western medicine if that’s what you want to do. Here is another article discussing the various benefits of ginger. Okay, okay, one more study! I just really want you all to know that this is true! 🙂
