Chewing Ginger Root: Being proactive

Since its so cold here in Canada (and I’ve had a lot of lung problems since I got here), I haven’t wanted to go outside very much, so I’ve been cooking a lot.

I really should be writing a lot, but I’ve been so stressed out with so many different things, cooking has been my main release. I haven’t cooked so many homemade meals from scratch so close together in my entire life, lol. I haven’t had a TV dinner once since I got to Canada. It’s all been fresh homemade food, or leftovers.

I’ve mostly been making homemade soups, and I usually put fresh ginger in the soup.

Tonight, I decided to chew on the ginger, and then put the ginger under my gum, kinda like it was chewing tobacco. Then I let it sit there for a few minutes.

(The mouth is a direct line to your bloodstream, so any food or medicine left to sit in your gum line goes into your blood stream easier. This is why dental care is so important–tooth infections can lead to heart, blood or brain infections fairly easily if not treated properly, because of this relationship with the blood stream.)

I’m not sure if chewing the ginger and placing it really helps, but I figure it can’t hurt. Since I’ve been on the verge (or a step or two away, like having polyps), from a number of cancers already, I feel like anything I can do that’s proactive is good thing.

Especially bowel cancer issues…and ginger is supposed to be particularly good for that 🙂

At the very minimum, ginger makes my mouth feel clean…that’s always a nice feeling.

Some kind of rare immune deficiency, yet to be determined. A lifetime of infections without an elevated white cell blood or fever. Very grateful to be alive, very thankful for the friends who’ve supported me and for access to literally millions of dollars worth of medical care. I’m not the bubble child, I’m somewhere in between.
