Ginger Beer Side Effects
I've always drank (15yrs or so) about 3-6 beers a day 3 to 5 days a week. What kind of side effects can I expect if I totally quit.?
Few or none: The fact that you don't drink 2-4 days a week is encouraging & means it is unlikely you will have many side effects. You may feel slightly anxious at times. There are natural calming remedies like holy basil, l-theanine & GABA (combined in products like theanine serene from source naturals). A good b-complex can reduce cravings. Exercise & meditation reduce anxiety & thus help make quitting easier. ...Read more

Several studies have found that ginger is better than placebo in relieving morning sickness. In a small study of 30 pregnant women with severe vomiting, those who took 1 gram of ginger every day for 4 days reported more relief from vomiting than those who took placebo. In a larger study of 70 pregnant women with nausea and vomiting, those who received a similar dosage of ginger felt less nauseous and did not vomit as much as those who received placebo. Pregnant women should ask their doctor before taking ginger, and should be careful not take more ...Read more

Can a shampoo containing beer can remove dandruff from oily scalp? Is there any side effects? Will it decrease hairfall?
Doubt it seriously.: I know of no logical reason that beer would decrease dandruff - and you'll smell like a brewery besides. You'll find many effective anti-dandruff shampoos in any drug store; if those don't work a dermatologist can prescribe a stronger prescription shampoo. As for hair shedding, you normally shed 60-100 hairs per day, all of which will grow back. If you're losing more than that, see a dermatologist. ...Read more

The side effects of these herbal remedies have not been formally studied in combination with carboplatin. For this reason, I tell my patients not to take these products while receiving chemotherapy. Even though the maitake and ginger have been used for thousands of years, it is not clear that they actually help in the treatment of patients with cancer. Find more www. Cancer. Org

What is exactly the interaction between ginger tea and cyclosporine modified, increase just the side effects or increases concentration plasma?
Rather decrease: In its plasma concentration, ginger isn't recommended to use while on oral cyclosporine modified, ginger reduces the bioavailability of the drug and reduce blood level concentration, an effect you don't want especially in post transplant patients for fear of organ rejection, the studies were mostly on rats but the results and recommendations are valid for humans, goodluck ...Read more

A carminative is any: Agent that helps with flatulence by coalescing small bubbles of gas in the GI tract into larger ones for expulsion of gas. Mylicon is safe, but not very effe tive.
