Bourbon and ginger ale just like mom used to make!

But what if Ginger is also feeling sick or she says that she is just not up for it? What then?

When it's done to horse, it's called gingering. When it's done to a person, it's called figging (Wikipedia, does mention BDSM).

I used to eat ginger in my younger days. Always felt great afterwards. Then the side effects (door slamming and tv remote throwing) started. Became refractory to treatment Switched to brunettes. Not as effective, but safer.

I always wanted to know who discovered that.  "Horse seems a bit tuckered out, Bob.  Don't ask me how I know this, but shove a bit ginger up it's tail pipe.  Perks 'em right up."

I'll get right on that, right after I drink my 18 cups of water per day and stop eating gluten and start my elderberry cleanse.

I know all the major ginger ale brands really just have "real ginger flavor" and no real amount of ginger but they do tend to settle my upset stomach.  They have half the sugar of regular sodas, plus carbonation and no caffeine and it seems to do the trick.

Why does this article recommend staying hydrated and then immediately recommend a diuretic? If you're going to drink green tea to get healthy, it needs to be decaf.

Is it? As a layman, the best evidence I could find suggests that it is not: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pub​med/19​774754

Dies this stuff have a food kick to it? I like Jamaica's Finest (brand) for my dark and stormys. That ginger beer that Black Seal sells is very weak as are most brands.

Actually, I've been eating a lot more ginger lately.  I even have a batch of ginger beer I made yesterday and "depotted" this morning, bottled up and sitting in the fridge.

All because of this asshole:

It's quite spicy but not the most powerful I've had. Finest is what I try to get, but it's hard to find around here. I can get Old Jamaica at my local.

7-up's always worked for me on that.  Diet 7-up works just as well.  I think it is the bubbles that do it.

I like to mix a bit of 7-up or Sprite with my Ginger Ale, since I can't find Schwepp's lemon ginger ale
anymore and that was the best tasting soda I've ever had.

themindiswatching: Ginger becoming a "superfood" in 3, 2, 1...


Ginger's anti nausea properties is one of those things I will swear by.  Many years ago I was on a two week sailing vacation in the Caribbean, and an hour in I go incredibly seasick...like "I would cheerfully murder my entire family  if it meant I got to step off the boat and onto a patch of not moving land" seasick.  An old hand one boat gave me two capsules of ground ginger and told me I'd feel fine in a little while.   I was skeptical but desperate (scopalamine and I do not agree), $5 minutes later I was fine and spent two happy weeks on that boat taking ginger once a day for the first couple days till my internals finally settled down and acclimated

Ugh i'm convinced it's a scam. I went on a snorkeling tour on my honeymoon and when we arrived at the dock was told there were rough seas. The nearest pharmacy was too far to get to before the boat left so the company gave me ginger tablets. I chummed the Great Barrier Reef for 6 hours.

Also got blowback puked on, but that was just some hilarious physical comedy.

Ginger, garlic, and peppers are my go to remedies when I'm feeling under the weather.

Good for clearing out the sinuses, settling the stomach, and killing what ails you.

Also, a lot of those type of women are pretty endowed. I wonder how that came to be?

True! Every time I played, I ended up as a tinker. My fancy PC version had the cloth map and metal ankh. I may still have the ankh somewhere.

10 things to eat and drink when you're sick

Hot and Sour Soup. It's really all I feel like eating. Yummy stuff, but there are few places around here that make it the right way.

As for ginger, my wife makes ginger tea for herself and the kids when they're sick. I don't know if it helps, but it makes 'em all happy, which is all that matters.
