question about the ginger juice treatment for GERD

Dear Dr Stoll,
I have been been using the ginger juice for about a week but the juice, which has been kept in the refrigerator has seperated. I give it a shake every morning before taking a spoonful. What i would like to know? Is it safe to use like this or should i throw it out and make a new batch? Should you make a new batch every week and how long can you use it before you have to throw it out or no longer safe to use? I look forward to hearing from you.
Regards Kev

Hi there,
I can't remember the exact answer but I know Dr. Stoll has said (maybe check the archives) that it does last as long as it's refrigerated for some amount of time...in any case I think I only used 2 batches for my 3 weeks. And by the way...it worked great for me! Stick with it!

Hi, Kev.

Listen to Jim.

The answer your question is: It really doesn't matter in the vast majority of cases. There should be about 1/10 of the volume settled in the bottom. How much there is depends upon the separation efficincy of your juicer and nothing else.

Since the pulp doesn't help with this, if it were me, I would not shake it up since however much volume of your dose you use up with pulp, the less juice you are actually getting.

I have yet to see anyone who did not get results because they used up too much of their dose with stirred up pulp.

Remember, though, SOME people will get results with just ginger ale; so the effective dose for some people would be 1/10th of a teaspoon and not the recommended dose (for the maximum % effectiveness) of 1 teaspoon.

Hope this helps.

Walt
