Mystery solved! I found 2017 research that confirms Ginger actually helps to speed metabolism! This explains why my patients notice their metabolism increasing with this Gingerberry Blaster I prescribe for their inflammation.
This “Daily Ritual” herbal medicine recipe is a simple, delicious and powerful combination of my two favorite anti-inflammatory herbs, ginger, and berries. The flavonoids in berries are powerful antioxidants that help protect our cells from damage from inflammation.
The best part of using berries to reduce inflammation is that they are DELICIOUS MEDICINE. I have my patients with chronic pain drink my Gingerberry Blaster Recipe 2-3 times daily.
When using Herbal Medicine to treat chronic inflammation we must be committed to the long term big picture. The reason for this is that all the cells in the body need to be turned over to newer less inflamed cells and that can take time. Some of our cells such as skin cells turn over rapidly in a few days while other organs and tissues require months.
I bring this up because I often see my patients struggling and want to give up after a few days when they don’t receive instant results when they are used to popping a percocet or vicodin. I want to emphasize this IMPORTANT herbal medicine point today, that Herbal Medicine will not work at all when the patient cannot regularly stay dedicated to using it. When working to combat inflammation it is important that we are diligent with using herbs regularly.
