Jonny Bowden, Ph.D., C.N.S., has created one of the most vital books on the health of your family you will ever find, The 150 Healthiest Food on Earth. The lavishly illustrated, 358-page weighty tome gives you more vital information on foods that can keep your family healthy than any other publication I have ever come across. And I am always on the look out. I have given the book to family members and often advise it for others. My goal here is pass on ideas that perhaps you did not previously know about.
Among the benefits Jonny outlines are soothing an upset stomach and improving circulation. Jonny writes about ginger’s positive effects on the gastrointestinal tract, the cardiovascular system, pain and fever.
I take a combination of ginger and white willow bark (salicin) as an aspirin substitute.
Jonny offers that given gingers blood thinning effect (like aspirin), those taking medications that prevent clotting, such as Coumadin or even aspirin, may want to pass on ginger.
