A recipe that might help

My cousin David Spitz, a chiropractic physician in Connecticut, is one person who strongly believes in natural remedies when they're available. Not that he's opposed to medical treatments. Far from it. He's a volunteer EMT in his community and takes meds as directed by his physicians.

But here's a natural recipe he sent to help with the nausea. I mentioned it the other night in the group meeting for new cancer patients but didn't have it with me. So here goes:

Natural Ginger Ale
1 teaspoon fresh ginger rhizome, thinly sliced (or ½ teaspoon powdered ginger)
1 teaspoon red raspberry leaves
3 cups water
1 cup carbonated water
1 lemon slice
Bring the herbs and plain water to a boil, then turn the heat down and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from heat, and steep an additional 10 minutes. Strain out herbs. Add carbonated water and lemon just before serving. Drink as much as desired.

Enjoy, and thanks Cuz.
