    Thanks peggy-sue, interestingly I was into the habit of adding dry ginger root powder to my teas last year!

    I second the grated ginger root tea idea. And, if it should be available to you, marijuana is used to combat nausea and loss of appetite after chemotherapy and in HIV treatment.

    I would also recommend that highly, if it is available to you.

    The loss of appetite/nausea is severe enough that cannabis no longer helps :( But yes, when it was working it was wonderful. Ginger sounds like the way forward.

    Thanks

    Seriously, they could be synergistic.

    Even if only in the flavour enhancement. ;)
    I do find ginger is good for nausea. I've had a lot of nausea recently, sipping my hot ginger really, really helps.

    @peggy-sue I'm glad you suggested sipping hot ginger, for a moment there I was wondering if you were suggesting I should smoke it along with MJ !

    And Steven Bruhner, master herbalist and author of books on herbal antibiotics/antivirals, has a ginger tea recipe at the top of his EBV protocol. He emphasizes that fresh ginger root is what works as an antiviral, not the powdered kind.

    Smoking ginger might be quite unpleasant... :wide-eyed:

    It doesn't have to be fresh ginger to combat nausea, but it is nice.

    Iquitos, thanks for this. Ginger as an anti-viral means it must be potent.

    So, Ive now come to the conclusion that not eating for a while is absolutely fine. My theory is that nausea could be the bodies way of saying its time to fast.

    I've also been reading up on autophagy and entering into a state of ketosis, as a detox.

    I am glad I mentioned it now! Sounds like a popular remedy

    And absolutely tea made from FRESH ginger is best, tabs are 2nd...

    Fresh ginger contains so many useful compounds
