Finally I decided to take a closer look on Ginger Root. I like what they say so I want to tell you all about it. It is amazing that just a little bit of Ginger contains so many nutrients: Beta-carotene, Caffeic Acid, Camphor, Capsaicin, Curcumin, Farnesol, Geraniol, Lecithin, Amino acids, Calcium, Essential Fatty Acids, Iron, Magnesium, Phosphorus, Potassium, Selenium, Zinc, Vit. B1, B2, B3, B6, Vit. A , Vit. C and more………                                                                                                                                        And many uses: fights inflammation, cleanses the colon, reduces cramps, stimulates circulation, Antioxidant, Antimicrobal Agent for wounds, protects the liver and stomach, useful for bowel disorders, circulatory problems, arthritis, fever, headache, hot flashes, indigestion, morning sickness, motion sickness, muscle pain, nausea, vomiting,  and KILLS CANCER CELLS………???????

Cautions: If taken in large quantities, can cause stomach distress. Not recommended for people who have gallstones, take anticoagulants or mix with some medications….

So …… how does Ginger kills Cancer ???

One study suggest that Ginger can kill cancerous cells by Apostosis – causing them to “commit suicide” by destroying themselves, and Autophagy – tricking them into eating themselves…. ( Veeeeery interesting !!!)  And because it has anti – inflammatory properties, Ginger can prevent growth of the new Cancer Cells…

You can benefit just by eating products with Ginger Root in them, drinking extra glass of Ginger Ale….. I like a Tea made of fresh Ginger Root or sprinkle little bit of Ginger Powder on some foods. (???)

As I mention in previous Post, I’m feeling good lately. So if you ask me why I keep searching for more Anticancer Remedies, I can only tell you, that………becuse I want to keep feeling good. And if I believe that Ginger is going to help me to stay healthy, this what Ginger is going to do. 🙂 !!!

Cancer becomes resistant to the same treatments and remedies over time, so I like to hit the ” Ugly Monster” with some new weapon now and then, so the “Ugly Creature”  never has a chance to regrow one of his ugly heads…….

Do your own research on this Ginger Root stuff. Use your own judgement. And always remember that it is easier to stay healthy, than trying to recover from some disease…

Cheers !!! To your Health !!!    ……. with a glass of Ginger Ale ….

    1. Apple crumble with ginger, ginger tea, ginger ale, ginger candy… mmmmmmm
      I love it.

      Very good post to introduce this magic root in its real power to make people healthy, strong and happy

  1. Thanks for sharing. I knew ginger was good for me and love it but didn’t know the details. I’ve been juicing in the morning with carrots, celery, apples and ginger root. Delish….and oh so good for me
    : ) Blessings for your continued good health!

  2. And here’s a great, refreshing drink called Sassy Water. It’s actually from the Flat Belly diet – it’s designed to “jump start” the diet by reducing inflammation & working to help detox your system. It’s delish & now I know it has other benefits, too! Thanks!

    Sassy Water

    2 liters water (about 8 ½ cups)
    1 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
    1 medium cucumber, peeled and thinly sliced
    1 medium lemon, thinly sliced
    12 small spearmint leaves.

    Combine all ingredients in a large pitcher and let flavors blend overnight.

    Drink the entire pitcher by the end of each day.

  3. Oh, your post reminded me to go take a couple of slugs from the Ginger Kombucha (fermented tea) in my frig. Enzymes, probiotcs and detoxifiers. Good stuff. Thank you for the reminder. -Nikki

  4. I love how ginger works for savory and sweet. I use it in marinades, baking, smoothies, salads….did I mention I adore this stuff?

  5. Your good vibes is infectious. And because of this post, I think I’ll start planting ginger in our garden. For some reason though, the taste of ginger reminds me of soap. I think it’s because I tried this White Tea and Ginger shower gel before.

    Rock on, ginger! \m/

  6. Beets are also very good for you. I do the ginger thing and its just awesome. I think good food is always the answer as you said easier to try to combat and stay healthy then recover. I am also a cancer survivor and read your interesting pages.

  7. DearCancerkillingrecipe!

    Just in from a week kids holiday break with my young family. Glad to see your positive, asssertive post about ginger. From your growing knowledge about what helps your strength and active lifestyle, ginger seems to fit nicely! Great stuff: your posts and the ideas.

    By a coincidence of a kind: today I woke early ready to pack up for home. But first I felt an urge to write one word and it was Pumpkin. I love the combination of Pumpkin and Ginger in a few recipes. At first I could only remember Pumpkin. And then later in the day I saw the other word I needed for a post of my own…. And combined Pumpkin with Ginger. A kind of Yin and Yang; colourful, filling sweetness of Pumpkin in soup, and the added Ginger to give a subtle edge.

    You see: I Wanted to use the two words in a wordpress message to writers about combining colours and textures and of course, tastes! Works for poetry and prose…. Why not for sustaining energy and health too??

    Might sound silly but the ginger reference from you- made my day! Thanks for that.

    PS I am 73 and survived a heart attack last September 2011, and in January – a severe operation for removal of a 7 cm suspected skin cancer.ooops My stents (4) needed a medication that promotes blood flow. Damn. Not helpful combination for surgery but I survived to live on with my wife and kids One of them once needed 2 yrs chemotherapy and finally had successful tumour removal at age 5. Our holiday was at the centre ( 4 houses) for families of cancer and tumour kids near Mainz, Germany where I live, Get it!! Know where you are coming from!!

    Blessings and successful times ahead and ahead!!!


    My spellings are UK ok?

  8. Good for you that you decided not to become complacent. This may sound stupid, but I have never thought of ginger ale having ginger. That is crazy. I am so glad you are feel great. 🙂

  9. That’s very interesting. Actually I have a ginger root in my kitchen and haven’t use a lot of it… that’s going to change for now on. Thanks for the tip 😉 and keep up the good vibes!

  10. Hey, thanks for stopping by my blog about my dog. I’m glad you did. I know that laughter is great medicine, but as I’ve been perusing your pages, I can see you have a wealth of wonderful information. Thanks for researching, sharing, and feeling better. Blessings!

  11. I love Ginger, and having had a nasty bout with cancer almost 3 years ago, I will need to check into it. My only concern with all the Natural food remedies is I need to make sure they don’t interact with my cancer pill. My mother’s Dr. told her last week that Ginseng is also good for energy. (She has an in-cureable bone marrow disease because she is too old for a bone marrow transplant like Robin Roberts) … Good posts… I always enjoy reading whenever I get the chance… 😀

  12. Straight ginger tea is my go-to for an upset stomach or whenever I have a cold (the spiciness helps clear the nasal passages). Interesting information about the cancer fighting properties

  13. Ginger – love it – except in ginger ale or ginger cookies – weird, I know, but I love ginger snaps 🙂 – actually I love it in salads, dressings – a million different ways. It just makes not only my tummy feel good, but my whole body feels good – it’s a strange feeling but a good one. I’m glad I like something that’s so good for the body and health. As a matter of fact I just had a salad the other day with a lemon-ginger dressing and now I’m craving it again. Gotta get that recipe too. LOL – thanks always love your posts.

  14. Thanks for visiting my blog. I think you can’t go wrong with ginger. It might not help, but it’s certainly not going to hurt, and I love how it spices things up!

  15. I am a strong believer in the benefits of ginger. I eat ginger snaps & I drink ginge rale. People have been telling me to drink green tea forever. Personally, I think green tea taste like dishwater but, I have found one that is Green Tea with Ginger and it is yummy. I am also a survivor and always like to add things that can help keep it that way.
    Thanks for stopping by my blog it is much appreciated.

  16. Thanks for visiting my blog AND for having liked one of my posts. I truly hope you can get rid of the cancer beast…

  17. Thanks for posting all that info about ginger. I love the stuff. I have chronic fatigue syndrome and IBS – ginger is my wonder food. I think you’d have to eat a lot to have it cause stomach problems. I find it helps with indigestion and bloat. I really respect your fighting spirit and wish you great success in your quest for health. 🙂

  18. Reblogged this on seyisandradavid and commented:
    I love ginger root, I have read so many wonderful things about it and it’s healing properties. This post is so informative and awesome that I just had to reblog it. Ha ha ha! It’s also brilliant! Brilliant!!

  19. Thank you for reading my re-innaugural blog post; I’m pleasantly surprised that you found it so quickly! I am transitioning from living-with to transforming my scoliosis; I’m glad to speak with you ^_^

  20. I have not had cancer thankfully but am impressed by your brilliant blog, often drink ginger tea and intend to grow beetroot on my new allotment when its time. Hesitate to suggest you are doing so well, but wondered if you saw; my relaxation, self hypnosis and positive health’ post and film a week or so ago, intended to offer a feel good factor, but not suitable for those suffering from depression! Take care. Love Ann

  21. I am so glad you are feeling better! And tea with fresh ginger root sounds wonderful right now!

    I love ginger and I do not drink soda but will drink the Canada Dry ginger ale made with real ginger once in awhile. I try to include ginger in many of my recipes too.

    This was a wonderful post with excellent information. Thank you!!

  22. I take ginger all the time, I will have to read more about the warnings for people taking certain meds, “Cautions: If taken in large quantities, can cause stomach distress. Not recommended for people who have gallstones, take anticoagulants or mix with some medications….” but I’m so glad my Dr. friend told me to take it, it’s really helping with my arthritis in my thumb. Great post!!!

  23. Thanks for a great post! Of course I’ve always known about ginger, but only recently became aware of how healthful ginger and other herbs are; I’ve always taken them for granted as a flavoring spice without thinking of any nutritional properties. I love fresh ginger and try to incorporate it into my diet whenever possible. Sometimes I put a slice in my tea just for the flavor.

    And thanks for stopping by my blog and giving a thumbs up. 🙂

  24. Of course we love ginger in our house!
    A great way to increase ginger in your diet is with Thai food – there are loads of simple salads and soups that contain fresh ginger. The book we use is Thai Food by David Thompson but I’m sure there’ll be lots of recipes on the internet. 🙂

  25. Lemon helps as much as ginger. A friend sent me a post about it. It said you could store lemons in the deep freezer and grate the skin every time you cook. To add in a casserole, for example. I wish I had the link but I think the article was in Greek.

  26. Your positive spirit and determination to use natural means to help you beat the cancer is really uplifting. I have a friend with cancer who would benefit emotionally from reading your blog, and will pass on the details to her. All the best, and keep taking the ginger! And thanks for visiting Living in Rural Mallorca!


  28. Yes, I have long thought that ginger is an under-rated ingredient, when you think about its versatility, its taste (arguable, no doubt), and its therapeutic properties. Mum includes garlic and ginger in most of her dishes, which make me salivate from these thousands of miles away. Gee, how I miss her, and it’s not just for her cooking. Thanks for the ‘like’.

  29. Hello there,

    Thank you for “liking” my post “Changing Seasons” on

    Ginger is one of my favorites! Delicious spicy ginger tea, gingersnaps, savory spicy curry…yum!

  30. I eat ginger all the time in my salads! Mince it thinly and toss with avocado, hard-boiled egg, hazelnuts, raisins, and I like using a sweet dressing like olive oil, balsamic vinegar and maple syrup to balance it out. It’s SO good!!

  31. Glad to hear you are feeling so good – cancer sucks – but Ginger Root tea made on the stove in a pot of boiling water is wonderful!!! (just never knew it was soooo healthy!!)

  32. ginger is a miracle root, i once ate a whole two inch stalk steeped in hot water and it cured me of one of the worst sicknesses ive had to date. sure it burned, and probably not recommended for the sensitive, but it was all worth it!

    to YOUR health! thanks for posting :o)

  33. My earliest memory of the health benefits of ginger was from my dad. I once had a nasty scratchy sore throat and he advised me to chew on fresh ginger. And voila, it did wonders for my sore throat. So just like you, I’m a strong advocate of ginger 🙂

  34. Wow, ellen, i love your blog, your positive energy about it, your love for life.
    Now about the ginger, yeah my husband and i totally discover its miraculous benefits and i gotta tell you it s just wonderful, for everything, for us works perfect for heartburn.

    Blessings my friends

  35. Hi Anna,
    thanks for liking my blog again!

    Ginger is great – I used to drink tea from freshly ground ginger every morning. Got out of the habit, unfortunately. Your post is a good reminder to start again. Cheers, and give that cancer the kick it deserves.

  36. I wonder if ginger nut biscuits qualify? Not the type on the postcard with a kilted Scotsman on a ladder getting something down for a woman customer, who looks up at him and says, ‘Oh, Mr MacTavish, I see you have ginger nuts!’

  37. Hi Anna, thanks for visiting my blog again – and for liking my latest post. I confess I’m rather curious to know what your daily diet looks like, with the ginger, with/without soups, shakes and the rest 😉

  38. Thanks for visiting and liking my PeACEMAKER post ‘Slingshot’. In India, most households use ginger as a daily spice in everyday food. In our house, each day starts with ginger tea (may you find Tata Red Label tea in a supermarket that already have a few more ingredients), and most of the curries either have fresh Ginger or Turmeric powder, its variant. If you do not favor the taste of Indian curries, most of the Thai cuisine use ginger liberally. I like these Thai dishes very much for taste and the sense of well-being it creates immediately. Simple “green Thai curry” or soup made of ginger roots, lemon grass, sweet lemon leaves (or shredded peel), lemon juice, asparagus, onion, potatoes and any other vegetables that you have in your house, boiled together with a cup of coconut milk/ powder in the end; makes a full meal when you are tired of cooking. Thai green curry is a thicker version of this soup. If you are allowed to eat fish, dip some of them too. These two are very healthy dishes. I can eat it every day, ten times a day, cancer or no cancer. Try some time. The www is full of indian and thai food, if you want to master it. Most important is that you use ingredients that are available in the house/ locally except the Thai essentials ie ginger, lemon grass and lemon juice, and don’t postpone it for 5* ingredients.

  39. Ginger is definitely one of my favorites. I try to put it in as many recipes as possible. Keep up the great posts and don’t be shy to post on our blog with your comments and health insights. Looking forward to reading more of your posts!!

  40. This is the third time I’m hearing about the wonders of ginger. My ex-husband called and told me I should make a paste out of it and apply to my gums as it would help my gingivitis. A guy at work drank ginger tea and his cold vanished in thin air. And now, your blog. I’ll have to try it.
    No, I lie. This is the 4th time. I read recently that ginger tea is good for irritable bowel syndrome.

    1. Hi Anna,

      As a brand new blogger, thank you so much for stopping by and liking one of my blog posts. It brought me to your blog, which I am now following. I have gotten into ginger on the recommendation of my accupunturist lately and love my ginger tea and cooking with it. I also love anything health related and always appreciate finding healthy tips and recipes. I try 🙂 So your blog will be a good resource for me, thank you. Saved this page so I can try the Sassy Water one of your readers posted. Best wishes in your journey. Here’s to your health! Take care, Kathleen

  41. Reblogged this on Let's eat in a parachute. and commented:
    This should help cancer patients. It’s tested. I have aunts and uncles who have Stage 3 cancers and they use turmeric (yellow ginger), and now they look as if they’re not sick. They used it as water and as much as possible put it in every dish. But they say drinking it pure is the best way, by juicing it. So yeah, it helps. 🙂

  42. Great post about ginger. I also use it daily in cooking, tea and I like the small candied ginger chunks to add to my morning oatmeal. All the best, and thanks for the like on my post about the shelter dog.

  43. Hey! Thanks for liking my site. I am a 49y/o non-traditional student. Broadcast Media. I am on-air now at KTBG-FM 90.9 The Bridge every Saturday night 8-midnight and excited about my future. I am very familiar with cancer. Worked in health care for nearly 10 years, it took my Mom in 2007, she was only 62. I like your discoveries about food, oxygen etc. The sleeping prophet Edgar Cayce once said in a trance that if an individual would eat a few almonds every day during their life they would never get cancer. I will check in from time-time. God Bless.

  44. My mom and I love Korean food… they use tons of fresh ginger root in their recipes. And they love ginger tea!!! Wishing you many years of health and happiness!

  45. Very very nice article. I like to drink tea from freshly prepared ginger root very often. I knew that it is some sort of healthy, but I primarily consume it because of the fresh and spicy taste. This article makes my habbit even more attractive!

  46. Great info on the humble Ginger Root. I’m a big fan of Ginger in any form – it is so beneficial and adds great flavor – even a tiny little sliver in a cup of Green Tea just makes it sing!! – We are going to grow our own ginger in the spring, The plant will have pretty little flowers as well.

  47. oooo!! I love ginger! And I always love hearing about how good it is for you! So glad that you’ve found ginger to be helpful in your healing and well being 🙂 I found out about it’s healing properties through Dr. Weil, who also has tons of great advice on anticancer and healing foods. Also, I had strep throat and mono earlier this year and I really believe my ginger tea kept my energy levels higher and pain free! It’s amazing stuff!

  48. I’ve loved ginger for years. You know I’ve heard that one reason they use so much of it in Chinese cooking is that it has the power to cut thru the grease they use to cook all of those yummy stir frys in. And if it cuts thru that stuff what else can it do? It’s bad for you to deep fry I know, so if the ginger helps mediate that it’s gotta be good. Thanks again for liking my posts. You’re one resilient woman!

  49. Love it! My son is a cancer survivor, but he will not listen to anything about staying healed. His chemo treatments have done severe damage to his bones and skin coloring. How do you get across to such a stubborn person that has been through that? I’m tempted to poor ginger tea and vitamin d into his bath. 🙂

  50. I buy the root itself, squeeze in my ecological green tea cup one a day using the garlic-squeezer. It keeps away the flu (acts as a mild antibiotic?) according to my mom. especially during the Swedish winters which can be so harsh.

    Thank you for finding me. And I hope you will continue to thrive and read what I write!

  51. my new favorite smoothie? couple of frozen strawberries and bananas, 1/4 oj, 1/4 agua and about an inch of chopped up ginger. after i smoothie it all together, i stir in a couple of teaspoons of chia seeds (another great provider of protein if you’re trying to eat less meat or are a vegetarian. 🙂

  52. I almost nedver get common illnesses (i have Dystonia, but that is a condition; not an illness). I was nauseous about a week ago. I never complain. What good does it do? I had read on a group I belong to on Facebook that Ginger ale is great if you have stomache problems. Drank some- felt better. Some things are :wives tales- others do work. I’m sitting here drinking ginger ale! Enjoy. Thanks for the extra information

  53. I keep my ginger root in a ziploc bag in my freezer door and grate it into many things — sauces, soups, baking. I was diagnosed with Crohn’s about a year ago and wanted to say thanks for the reminder of all the health perks!

  54. Glad to see your wonderful post about Ginger. I am in love with this stuff. Ginger beer, ginger on chicken wings, salmon salad, iced tea, lattes, indian food, pickled with sushi. I could go on and on. since I have GI issues and have lactose intolerance, ginger has become my go to. I love the scent and have ginger in perfume and lotions. I knew it is anti-inflammatory but was not aware of all the benefits you described. so glad you are doing better and that ginger has helped you. And double thanks for liking my new blog.

    peace, Linda

  55. Many thanks for this, I have always been a ginger lover in all it’s forms but particularly chrystalised, so it’s good to know my indulgence is beneficial !

    Good luck with your health & thanks for coming to my site.

  56. Is there a way I can put this on Google+ I am new to this. Oh I will just send the link to my friend. Her cancer is out of remission. She once went into remission for years and years on some sort of spinach diet (I think)! Have you heard of that or tried that one?

  57. Thanks for the informative post! I knew that ginger was good for the digestive system, but I didn’t realize it had so many other benefits. I’ll have to incorporate it into my cooking more often.

    1. Every morning I drink a mug of boiling water poured on to a slice of crushed ginger; after straining, I add two slices of lemon. This is guaranteed to wake up your liver and ensure a feel-good for the rest of the day.

  58. Amazing! I had no idea ginger had all those benefits! Very eye-opening. I’m having trouble with my health as well (not just the mental health I talked about in my blog). But for the ginger ale, is must be made with REAL ginger, right? It can’t have artificial flavor, it must say “made with real ginger”, right?

  59. When the prescribed anti-inflammatory didn’t work (for joint stiffness & aches) I took ginger (tea) and ginger slices (hard-to-find unsulphured variety). What a difference!! Makes the prescription look like a sugar pill or something! : ) Thanks for posting more about ginger than I’d ever heard! We all have cancer cells circulating (usually dying off); it’s good to know anything that can work against them.

  60. I know about ginger’s digestive benefits, and put it on chicken and turkey breast, but I was unaware of its many other benefits! Unfortunately, I have gallstones (which, thankfully, do not bother me), but I’ve been using ginger for so long without problems, I’m not stopping now. In fact, I’m thinking of using it more often–I have Sjogren’s syndrome, which comes with its own set of aches, pain, and fatigue. Thank you for liking my blog post!
