      This honestly has reduced my over the counter meds significantly. I grind up ginger and tumeric root, boil it, mix with lemon juice, sometimes cinnamon and make it into a water and drink it all day long. My Dr was on my case about reducing my ibprophin and Tylenol use, I tried this and it worked!

    I sometimes make my own, but more often than not I buy it from a local tea shop that will make ‘tea to order’. I just discovered that Trader Joe’s sells a ginger/turmeric herbal tea in bags- great for travel or that quick cup of tea!

  2. Sharon Knape says:

    My husband and I get ground turmeric and ground ginger (organic) in bulk at our health food store here in Omaha. It is much less expensive than getting it in pills or glass jars.

    I just learned about tumeric and ginger today, I will look around for this over the weekend. Thanks for the information may God continue to bless you and yours.

  4. Does this tea of turmeric and ginger really works!!!!
    I am basically from India where season oftenly changes. I am patient of RRMS
    I want to really help myself of getting rid of MS.

      Young lady, as a convenient product to carry with you is the Ginger & Turmeric tea bags at Trader Joe’s stores. You can purchase turmeric capsules and use it in food or mix with ginger root that is available all over.
      Vitamins: MS patients usually show a deficiency in B12 vitamins. If so take B Complex 50 mg once daily. This helps with energy.

      Avoid these foods: Red Meat, Dairy. Alcohol & Caffein use sparingly
      Eat: Fish such as Salmon, tuna, sardines.
      Skinless chicken or turkey
      Beans, lentils , nuts. Walnuts then Almonds are best.
      Fruit & Vegetables . Must buy organic in most fruits or don’t eat them.
      Whole grains……do not eat white bread, white flour, white rice. (Remember all carbohydrates turn to sugar once eaten.
      Turmeric reduces joint pain.
      Ginger has anti-nausea, digestive & respiratory benefits in addition to its anti-inflammatory abilities.

      I don’t think there is a cure for MS
      You can live a normal life, however it is said that your life MAY be shorten by 7yrs
      If you need further help I suggest you Google ( or have a friend Google) your questions directly as to what you want to learn, you will get a reply.
      Here are a few sample questions:
      When is best time of day to take supplements for MS?
      Should I take vitamins with food or water?
      What foods are excellent for MS?
      Will exercise help my pain or should I attempt to walk with pain.
      Okay young lady I hope I was able to help you, thank you.

    I have been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. A side effect of my management medication is a little nausea. Has anyone tried turmeric and ginger tea for this problem and what were the results.

    I am 35 years old and have been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis
    I have been using ginger tea for three consecutive years and my plaque size has decreased
    Although I did not take any drugs, I did not have an attack during this time
