Life With Lupus

Ginger Drinks/shots

Hi guys,
I have been hearing a lot about ginger and tumeric drinks helping out with lupus symptoms. Any thoughts on these or favorite recipes or brands?

Hey blusunshine,
Welcome to Ben’s Friends
I thought another member may have a bit more info than I, specifically regarding Lupus.
But both ginger and turmeric are believed to have some medicinal benefits BUT as with most things, in moderation.
There have been some reports of some liver issues for people with autoimmune conditions regarding turmeric. Personally, I am unsure if this was related to dosage or an interaction with other meds, so I would be strongly recommending talking with your Drs in regard to taking any supplements. From experience, drug interactions can be nasty and can cause any number of side effects.

Please speak to your drs in regard to this.
