THE WORST TIME TO EAT GINGER...PROTECT YOUR HEALTH - Dr Alan Mandell, DC

Ginger has magic healing medicinal properties. Although, it is very important you understand the adverse effects ginger can create with certain medical conditions.

For Adults Adults should limit their intake of ginger root to no more than 3-4 grams daily, the University of Maryland Medical Center reports. This dosage recommendation includes ginger root consumed from food sources, such as ginger bread, ginger ale and ginger snaps. Generally, children between the ages of 2 and 6 should not consume more than 2 milligrams of ginger root each day. However, the maximum amount of ginger root your child may take in a day may vary depending upon body weight. Always consult your child's paediatrician before giving your child ginger root to ensure you provide your child with the correct dose of this supplement. During Pregnancy While pregnant, women should not take more than 1 gram of ginger root daily, the University of Michigan Health System reports. Typically, expectant mothers are advised to take 250 milligrams of ginger root up to four times daily to reduce pregnancy-related nausea.

welcome everyone dr. Mandel, here I want to go over some important information about ginger now I love ginger has amazing medicinal effects for our body but there are certain conditions where you have to be aware that this can cause more complications now we know ginger can do great things for us from motion sickness to digestive problems works as a great anti-inflammatory and dozens of more beneficial effects it can do for our body although these particular things I'm going to review with you are going to help you

I highly recommend that if you are one of these people who fit any of these conditions please speak to your doctor first now millions of people are on blood pressure medications and many mix-and-match some are calcium channel blockers some are beta-blockers and there are many others so monitor your blood pressure because ginger will lower it which is good but you don't want it too low you want to make sure it's in the right range so check with your doctor and hopefully you can reduce some of your medications, 

females if you are pregnant or breastfeeding high doses of ginger can cause potential complications so please speak to your OBGYN or gynaecologist.

ginger is a very powerful herb and it has antiplatelet blood-thinning properties so if you are taking blood-thinning medication or if you are due to have a surgical procedure done,

this needs to be brought out to your doctor.

ginger is also known to lower blood sugar so if you are a diabetic or have high blood sugar and you're taking medication along with excessive amounts of ginger that can really throw your sugar level off that can make you hypoglycemic where your blood sugar is too low so make sure you monitor your blood sugar as well as speaking with your doctor.

so regarding your heart, if you are having arrhythmias or irregular heartbeat taking excessive ginger can sometimes make that condition worse and that may be an answer to why this is getting worse so speak with your cardiologist.

Now I love ginger for digestive issues but for some people, it just doesn't agree with them it can give you excessive gas so if you're having a lot of ginger in your diet and you're wondering why you're getting all this gas just like garlic then you want to start cutting back for those people who have chronic heartburn or acid reflux ginger may not like you so I recommend using capsules of ginger and that may be your answer.

so if you're taking ginger and doing it on an empty stomach that many times can upset your stomach ginger will stimulate the secretion of bile which benefits digestion although when your stomach is empty this can lead to enough gastric stimulation leading to digestive distress and upsetting your stomach. so try taking ginger with food and your condition just may go away

Now ginger has amazing healing medicinal properties and I recommend that if you have any of these conditions or symptoms to first speak to your doctor but you might want to cut back on the ginger or slowly start adding it to your diet and you hopefully will see great results I ask you please to share this video with your friends and family leave your comments below and most important make it a great day I'm dr.
