Curejoy Expert Dr.Janardhana Hebbar Explains:

Ginger has a lot of therapeutic properties which might cause people to overuse this herb. Consuming too much ginger root can cause heartburn, diarrhea, mouth irritation, sleepiness (minor sedation), belching, bloating, gas and nausea, and aggravate stomach ulcers and inflammatory bowel disease.

Ginger has anti coagulant (blood thinning) properties that might heighten the effect of or interfere with Anti-coagulant/Anti-platelet drugs medications. Some women have reported extra menstrual bleeding and pregnant women are recommended to avoid ginger (used normally to avoid morning sickness) before the last few months of delivery.

Ginger may also lower your blood sugar, which could cause problems if you have diabetes or hypoglycemia. Talk to your doctor and adjust your diabetes medications.

I guess what is a lot for one person isn't a lot for another. Making this article useless. There are tremendous health benefits of ginger. I say eat as much as you like and if you notice some of the listed health problems back off a little

My all arthritis pains stop because I take ginger water which I do my self: Fresh grinder ginger 1 lb with 3 litters of water in glass jar. It is enough for 1 to 2 month to drink. I keep this mixture in refrigerator I take 2 -3 table spoons of this mixture on 1 glass of slightly warm water 2 times a day. Can add little beet of good honey and lemon. No bad side effects, only good. Doing this for second year.
