GERD

I am willing to try anything. I have taken Prilosec but it is very expensive and I have no insurance. As far as the ginger root, I don't have a juicer. Is there another way to extract the juice?

Tres,

Go to your healthfood store (the one that has the health food bar) about 15 minutes prior to closing. Bring your 2 pounds of ginger root and ask them if they will juice it for you while you wait. Volunteer to help them clean their juicer in payment (something they have to do at the close of each day anyhow) and I will bet they will be happy to help you.

Remember: the final cure is not the GRJ! That is by practicing wellness which is free.

GERD and Ginger Juice Preparation-Non-Juicer Method

I have a Hiatus Hernia, which I've had for many years. I bought Walt's book after reading many of the articles and archives at this site. My wife Karen read the book and decided I should try the Ginger Root Solution. Since we don't have a juicer, we had to find an alternative method of extracting the juice. We went to the store and bought a ginger root weighting in at 1 7/8 pounds. When we got it home, Karen cut the root into manageable pieces and peeled it with a potato peeler. We assembled our Oster Machine food processor and tried using the "juicer" setting. We got shredded ginger. No juice. I had read in the archives of people using a garlic press to extract the juice. This seemed like too much work. So we tried using a box grater. This seemed to work pretty well. We also have a single size flat grater we use for Parmesan cheese and this also seemed to work. We kept looking and found another flat grater that I use for shredding mozzarella. This has two different size holes and worked the best. (In terms of speed). Any one of the grating techniques seemed to be promising. We kept grating and placing the resulting pulp into a strainer sitting in a saucepan. Just this method alone yielded 8 ounces of juice. We placed a weight on the pulp remaining in the strainer and I'm sure we'll get another
2-3 ounces overnight. Our total time was about 45 minutes. Actual time once we got the method down was about 20 minutes.

Tomorrow morning I will start the "treatment". I did try a drop, just for kicks. That's what I got. I can't imagine a whole teaspoon of this stuff. Walt is right; it will be like drinking 190 proof grain alcohol. Over the next three weeks I will let you know of my progress.

Does anybody know what I can use the residue ginger for? Can it be dried and used?
