Exclamation ginger and miscarriage

i read on the dr weil website that the chinese use to use ginger as a way to cause a miscarriage, so it was suggested that pregnant women stay away from ginger. i did some other searches on the net and they said to stay away from ginger as well, or small amounts.

just some important info i wanted to share, especially to those with complications in their pregnancies.

I've read in many many places for a woman to have ginger while pregnant to help with morning sickness, so i think it may just be an old wives tale. I've had 3 kids and my doctor never told me once to avoid ginger.

I drank ginger tea made from fresh ginger root for the first two months of my pregnancy to help with morning sickness......so far the baby has a strong heartbeat and I'm a little over 13 weeks. My mom told me about the tea and that many of my family members took ginger to relieve morning sickness and I don't know of anyone who had a miscarrage. I think for ginger (but this is just me thinking)to cause a miscarrage, you'd have to consume a lot of it.....just like any herb, you can use as medicine so you wouldn't want to take too much.

Re: ginger and miscarriage

Something important most people don't understand about herbs and spices. They all have a benefit taken in average doses. They all when taken in overdoses do some kind of damage. Take penicillin. It is a mold! Or so called poisons like Hemlock are also beneficial in small degrees. It is all in the amounts and varieties that we take these herbs. So yes, ginger is taken in tea form with parsley by people wanting a miscarriage.
