Pots & Ginger!

Recommended Posts

Being a ginger myself, I half expected this post to be about redheads LOL. I have heard about ginger putting people in the hospital. I have stayed away from it myself but it is crazy to think something as simple as ginger could be harmful to us.

I've been looking for ginger teas to try and use with my stomach issues... Maybe I better not, lol.

Interesting. I drink ginger tea from time to time and use it in cooking and have never noticed a problem. Since they say it reduces blood pressure, this will obviously be aproblem for some more than for others. Not everyone w POTS has low (or severely low) bp.

Yeah, my bp is high a lot, and I love to cook with it. Love the smell.

Interesting. I have (general) low-normal BP when resting (and who knows when standing LOL). I use ginger in many forms, often daily, but haven't noticed adverse effects for me personally. Definitely helps my digestion. There are lots of foods and herbs that can play with BP, so it's good to be aware, especially if you have very low BP.

I love my Ginger -- it, along with digestive enzymes and proviotics, allowed me to get off of Phenegran and Reglan. I have low blood pressure in general, but it is corrected with Midodrine and I haven't had any effects taking 550mg ginger daily, usually 1-3 times per day.

I highly recommend not taking any medical advice from Livestrong. Their articles are generally poorly written and meant as clickbait to generate ad revenue. There was basically no substance on that page. It just says ginger may decrease blood pressure and gives no mention of why or how.

I love ginger but it gives me digestive problems. It speeds up my already too-rapid gastric emptying which leads to stomach/intestinal spasms and other IBS issues. I also get bile reflux if I have too much ginger but it helps with my nausea beyond that. I never noticed it lowering my already low BP though.
