    I have UC I have had it for 9 years I have been on every medication and last year I had the surgery done.

    I want to try herbs mainly Ginger I have done basic research and everything that I have read states 3-4 doses a day I don't want to take it in pill form. I drink Ice coffee daily.

    My questions are

    1. If I add a ginger power/fresh ground ginger to my ice coffee will it have the same effect or does the coffee delude the effect.

    2. Is "ginger Ale" a good supplement.

    3. If I'm suppose to add one dose per cup and my coffee is 2 cups do I up the dose to 2?

    Re: Ginger

    What's the main reason you're wanting to take the ginger?

    What surgery did you have...j-pouch, ostomy, K-pouch..?

    Ginger ale I don't think would be a good supplement. For one, it's carbonated...might cause you problems with lots of gas.

    Have you looked up the side effects of ginger?

    What other supplements are you taking?

    It's all a matter of perspective!

    I am not sure why you want to take ginger, but I can tell you that I have Crohn's with constipation instead of diarrhea and due to the constipation one of my worst symptoms is often terrible nausea. Ginger has helped me with that much of the time. I use it in many forms, pills, ginger chews, crystalized ginger, and drinking ginger tea.

    Re: Ginger


    When I had UC in the 80's, taking Ginger severely irritated my Colon. Of course it seemed EVERYTHING did after a certain point. I started with small amounts of ginger root in stir fry, nope, didn't help me. Test it out. Don't over do it if you sense any bad rumblings.
