Swap Acetaminophen for Ginger to Soothe Pain
Fresh ginger contains compounds and enzymes that fight inflammation. In most cases of pain, it is a result of inflammation. Acetaminophen has little anti-inflammatory action; it just blocks the feelings of pain. Ginger goes right to the source. Those with significant pain or inflammation should try taking it three times per day. The recommended dosage is about 1/4 to 1/2 inch of the root. You can take it as a shot, or even mix it with sparkling water to make fresh unsweetened ginger ale.
