Hello to the one who reads this, again a question, thanx so very much for the previous question also behalve of my hiv meditation group. But anyway, hopefully the last question about food and supplements. Is it safe and good to drink and eat Ginger? 4 of us have Truvada and Viramune. Thank you so much and keep up the ( very very) good work you doing.

Response from Dr. Young

Hi Ron,

Good to hear from you again. Ginger has been reported to decrease nausea and vomiting caused by pregnancy and cancer treatments. There's little problems in taking ginger.

For more information about ginger, or other complementary and alternative medicines, I'd suggest looking at the US National Center for Alternative and Complementary Medicine's website.

Be well, BY
