    Surprisingly, I was siting in my yard mediating, trying to figure out what direction GOD was going to take me. A woman accosted me and stated that her friend was very ill and need a house to fulfil your dreams. She stated “I’m a nurse and worked with Doctors on house calls. Therefore, she continue to explain that her friend is suffering from Lumpus. A thought enter my mind; my wife have been taking ginger root tea to her church for years; now everyone is asking for it. The results are amazing. Ginger root tea eliminate pain. The coefficient of this root religiously relieve the sufferance of pain temporary for lumpus. This is only an opinion.

  4. I was diagnosed with Lupus SLE in 1993 and had severe joint pain along with other symptoms for years. I started drinking ginger tea because it made me relax and that is has a refreshing taste. I later purchased a ginger tea that had Turmeric in it. After drinking the ginger and turmeric tea for 3 months I noticed that I had no joint pain. Went to see my Rheumatologist and told her about the discovery. I told her I was pleased that I found something that worked and that I would not have to take my plaquenil as often. I’m still drinking the tea and haven’t had my plaquenil in 8 months and the pain is under control.
