Does Ginger Love ME or Does She Not?  3/10/2021


With a title like that, you gotta read this update to see who Ginger really loves. 
Remember how to solve the question, "Does he/she love me? Remember taking a flower and picking off a pedal (she loves me) and then another pedal (she loves me not) until you're down to the last pedal?" 
For years, we've had the Ginger Conundrum: Is OK or is it not OK when it comes to the King DietSM. Initially, it was on the "Do Not Eat" list. And, then I figured I was wrong and put it on the "Eat List." In fact, it's one of the major polyphenols in our herbal Nature's Gift® Skin Regeneration Formula. It's been in our store for about two years and no one complained about the formula causing a problem. The purpose of this formula is two fold:
?polyphenols are super important in rebuilding layers of your skin that have been damaged, let face it, destroyed by skin parasites. 
?the formula contains ginger powder which is very powerful in aiding digestion, memory, and cognitive skills. 

Then I got an email from Barbara, our herbalist, informing me that after she had some ginger root, she noticed a significant increase in her symptoms. We both became worried about ginger. Why would she react to it? Fortunately, she is into herbs and does research and is the person who formulated our Nature's Gift® Skin Rejuvenation Formula. What she found is that ginger is on and off the diet. It depends on whether it's the ginger root or the dried into ground powder. By the way, tumeric - a great polyphenol - has been removed from the formula because she discovered it increases dopamine in the brain which is not what we want to do. So, regrettably, tumeric has been removed. 

Regarding ginger, she researched and found that the ginger in the root form is different than the ginger that is dried and in the powdered form. She referenced an article in Is Fresh Ginger Better Than Ground Ginger, "Ginger is a popular spice used in cooking and baking and is best known for helping to relieve nausea, motion sickness and stomach pain.  Many people believe that in order to get the best benefits from ginger they should be using raw root ginger. So is fresh ginger better than ground ginger? The answer is no.

Ground ginger contains some different medicinal benefits than raw ginger root. The process of creating ground ginger reduces the amount of gingerol it contains. Gingerol is the active component of root ginger that provides many medicinal health properties. However, although the dehydration process decreases gingerol it also increases levels of the compound shogaol. Shogaols are believed to have many health benefits and properties that root ginger does exhibit, especially those of memory and cognitive enhancing properties. So dried ginger if offering benefits from both gingerol and shogaol."

So, this means that skin parasites and Morgellons like gingerol and not so much shogaol. Ginger root is not on the Eat List and ginger powder is on the Eat list. I continue to be amazed with this discovery and thank Barbara for her contribution.

What about Ginger Ale? The jury is out on this issue. Some ginger ale is made from ginger root which may mean that ginger ale is on the "off list." It's rather confusing as Schweppes Ginger Ale has no ginger in it and Canada Dry Ginger Ale the ginger root is boiled in ethanol and the ingredient is listed as Ginger Concentrate. In any event, the sugar in Ginger Ale pretty much puts Ginger Ale on the "Do Not Drink," list, unless you're not dealing with Morgellons, but only Collembola in which case you may be able to drink it in Stage II of the King DietSM. 

Remember, she is also the person who has formulated our new Nature's Gift® Parasite Stop Herbal Formula which we can't keep enough in stock. Our goal is to have an herbal formula to replace the need of using prescription medications to reduce dopamine uptake in the brain as reported in the blog entry, Why Medications Block Parasitic Activity. Reducing dopamine uptake is related to reducing parasitic activity and makes it easier for the diet to be effective. So, if you've been one of the few who have been able to get it, please return this email with your review or feedback regarding the formula. Remember, the herbal formula does not replace the critical role of the diet and that the diet is still very strict and non-forgiving, but hopefully replaces the need for medications to help the diet "kick in,"  "Kicking in means that itching and biting symptoms are significantly reduced. Of course, it's also important to be bathing to clean your skin and disinfecting your surroundings as instructed in Chapter III of my book, How How to Get Your Life Back from Morgellons, Chronic Lyme, and Other Skin Parasites.
