Oh how I hated ginger a few years back. Ask me to partake in the spicy, tangy delight at the end of a sushi meal and I would have ran out the door. Until I learned to love it, and learned to not only incorporate it into my cooking but to help soothe an upset stomach from celiac symptoms.
Today I’m sharing with my fellow food allergy babes, and even celiac members my top trick for feeling better.
Although too much of anything isn’t a good thing, ginger, is my go to for naturally trying to ease my symptoms whether they arise from celiac, food allergies or other illnesses.
Ginger, and ginger root is anti-inflammatory, and makes for a great addition to your cooking. I like to incorporate this into my chicken and rice dishes as well as finishing off my fish or veggies depending on the form that I have it in that week.
Ginger is even said to make sure it’s on hand if someone with a gluten intolerance and especially celiac disease ingest gluten. Lately, I have especially been loving ginger tea! It’s also said to have many other health benefits such as relieves arthritis, soothes migraines, kills cancer cells, lower’s blood sugar, reduces cough colds. It’s also good for us ladies whether it’s morning sickness or menstrual pain! The active ingredient in ginger, Gingerol significantly helps fight infection! Hence why it can help with so many inflammatory symptoms.
As far as absorption, like I mentioned I try to incorporate into my diet, drink as a tea, or simply snack with it! You can also get ginger supplements from your local Trader Joe’s or Whole Foods. It’s also available as a powder but best effects result from ingesting it into you system to be more responsive.
I hope this has helped some of you out there with tummy issues or other inflammatory health issues! Let me know what you use when you’ve eaten gluten to get some relief! Note: consuming ginger does not reverse or heal the damages of eating gluten if you are allergic, it can only relief some of your temporary pain and symptoms.
