Benefits of Ginger
I often had problems in my stomach before like bloating, burning, nausea, pressure in the upper abdomen, excessive burping due to gas, and cramps. Those painful experience took me 1 month before I went to the doctor and undergo endoscopy. My doctor found out that I had gastritis and some bad bacteria so he prescribe me antacids, inhibitor and antibacterial tablets and had to avoid certain foods like fatty acids, milk, and acidic foods for a month. Eight days after taking the tablets and avoiding those foods I feel much better and taking a zip of boiled ginger once a while feels much more better this because ginger has its natural medicinal benefits.Ginger can treat. 1.
