7 Signs Ginger Water Should Be Your Everyday Choice

Have you ever tried drinking ginger water? Did you know that ginger can actually fight cancer, and is known to be one of the healthiest spices in the world? If you’re experiencing any of these 7 symptoms, you need to start drinking ginger water every day.

1. You have a hard time losing weight.

So many of us would love to shed the pounds, but it seems like nothing we do works. If you’ve been trying to lose weight to no avail, try drinking ginger water every day. Ginger has been shown to increase your metabolism. Furthermore, it is used as an active ingredient in many weight loss supplements.

Additionally, ginger suppresses your appetite by helping you to feel full for longer amounts of time. Let’s do the math: eating fewer calories + burning more calories = weight loss!

2. You have digestion problems.

IBS is pretty common in the United States, affecting 25-45 million Americans. It can be very painful, causing bloating, gas, cramps, diarrhea, and even constipation. Luckily for you (if you have IBS or bad gas), ginger can provide some much-needed relief. Ginger soothes and relaxes the intestines, which helps alleviate all of the symptoms of IBS.

3. You get motion sickness or frequent nausea.

Ginger is well-known for being one of the best treatments for nausea. For those of us who feel queasy every time we get in the back seat of a car or ride a boat, ginger can come to the rescue. In fact, it can help anyone who feels nauseous, even if motion sickness isn’t the culprit.

Pregnant women often get morning sickness and feel very nauseous every morning. Similarly, some women’s cramps during their “time of the month” can be so painful it induces nausea. Drinking ginger water every day can cure these terrible symptoms! In fact, ginger has been shown to alleviate not only nausea, but also the cramp pain itself.

4. You’re often sick.

Do you always seem to have a cold or a runny nose, and it just won’t go away? Ginger water is the answer! Ginger boosts the immune system. Doctors say ginger can cleanse the lymphatic system, flush out toxins, and kill bacteria. All of these benefits lead to more time spent being healthy.

5. You have a low sex drive.

Believe it or not, ginger actually increases your desire to get freaky in the sheets! Ginger naturally improves circulation throughout the body, which is why it also helps with arthritis and irritable bowels. In doing so, ginger also improves circulation through our sex organs. This circulation increases blood flow to our organs, which means you’ll find yourself ready to go more often!

6. Alzheimer’s runs in your family.

If someone in your immediate family is suffering from Alzheimers, you could be at risk of contracting it yourself. There are a few studies that have shown Alzheimer’s to be potentially genetics related, which means your family could pass it on to you. Drinking ginger water every day reduces your risk of contracting the disease because ginger has been shown to slow down the loss of brain cells.

7. You get frequent heartburn.

Heartburn plagues almost 22 million Americans on a daily basis, and even more on a weekly and monthly basis. It’s painful, uncomfortable, and plain annoying. In fact, many of the acid blocker medications normally prescribed by doctors simply don’t work for everyone. If you’ve tried other methods to no avail, drinking ginger water every day may provide you the relief you’re seeking.

Conclusion

Ginger has many amazing healing properties. It has been touted as a miracle cure for many ailments and for many generations. Asian countries have been using it as a medicinal herb for over 2,000 years, so it must be doing something right if we’re still using it today!

10 Cheap And Amazing Honeymoon Ideas

10 Cheap And Amazing Honeymoon Ideas

A honeymoon is important.  The wedding is over.  The months, or even years, of stress and planning are finally over.  It’s time for the two of you to relax, settle in, and start enjoying your time together as you embark on your first journey as a family.

To make the most of this time for the least amount of money, it’s important to focus on what you want out of a honeymoon.  This isn’t your typical list of touristy honeymoon locations everyone goes to.  Rather, it’s a list of cheap honeymoon experiences a couple can enjoy together, regardless of where it’s at.

1. Camping

A week long camping trip is a fantastic way to see how you mesh together as a couple.  You’re put in a low impact “survival” situation where it’s just the 2 of you and nature.  You have a chance to see how your new spouse handles themselves when left with the basics of life.  There are amazing national parks all over the United States where you can camp for a week for $20-30, disconnect from technology, and enjoy some of the natural wonders our nation has to offer.

2. Staycation

You don’t have to go anywhere for a honeymoon.  In fact, the tradition of taking a honeymoon vacation is a relatively new one.  Prior to the 19th century, a honeymoon involved staying home together for a month to get to know each other physically.  Think of how blissful it could be to take a full month off work, disconnect from the outside world, and focus entirely on projects together.  You may not be wowing your friends and family with pictures of some exotic location, but they’ll be envious of your escape from the rat race nonetheless.

3. Island Getaway

People tend to overspend on their honeymoon vacations to Hawaii, Tahiti, etc.  Going to these places doesn’t have to be expensive.  You don’t need to stay in a 5 star resort when you’re on a Best Western budget.  You’re there to be in the atmosphere of the island, not a hotel room. Book a cheap flight and sleep in a hotel alternative, on the beach or in your car.  It’s the view in paradise that really matters.

4. Fancy Resort

Book an expensive resort, spa, or retreat in the city you live in.  While this may seem counterintuitive as a cheap destination, when you consider your savings on airfare and other travel costs, you can afford to be treated like royalty within your own city limits.  If you book a honeymoon package, you’ll end up with a lot of free amenities and extra attention.  There’s no need to fly halfway across the world to live the good life.

5. Road Trip

The journey is often more fulfilling than the actual destination.  If you fly out to some exotic locale, you’ll be stuck on a plane for 8-30 hours.  Rent a luxury car, pick a handful of places you each have always wanted to visit, and go on an adventure.  You can keep food costs down by packing your own snacks, but it’s always a good idea to sample the local delicacies wherever you go, even if it’s only a few states over.

6. Charter a Boat

If the ocean is your thing, a week-long cruise can cost you $1500-$3000 per person, depending on the destination.  You also have to factor in travel costs to and from the cruise, alcohol, souvenirs, and on-shore excursions.  You’ll also be surrounded by people.  For the same price (and often much cheaper), you can charter your own boat and enjoy the experience in private.

7. Las Vegas/Atlantic City

If gambling is your thing, these are the places to do it.  Which one you choose depends on your preference, budget, and proximity.  The way to make this vacation cheaper is to gamble smart.  Stay away from low odd tables (i.e craps, roulette) and read up on the MIT blackjack strategies to beat the house.  If you do it right, you can win enough for a free trip (and gain a valuable team skill in the process).

8. Themed Retreats

There are weeklong retreats all over the world where you can fully immerse yourselves as a couple into a hobby you’re both passionate about.  Go on a yoga/meditation retreat, a ranch, a vineyard/farm, a backpacking adventure, treasure hunt, or whatever you’re into.

9. Working Honeymoon

Your honeymoon doesn’t have to be a vacation.  For a truly memorable experience, dedicate a week to a charity or volunteer organization.  You can drive out to a campground to help restore it in the offseason.  Maybe you’ve always wanted to volunteer to help out your local animal shelter, plant trees, help the homeless, etc.  Use the time to do something together as a couple that will fulfill you spiritually while contributing to the community.  Just because you’re on a honeymoon doesn’t mean you can’t be productive.

10. Festivals, Fairs & Special Events

Every city, state, and country has festivals, fairs, and special events.  Find one you’re interested in.  If you time your wedding right, your honeymoon can be a trip to one of these festivals.  Burning Man, SXSW, Bonnaroo, the Renaissance Fair, regional harvest festivals, Mardi Gras, New Years Eve in Times Square, a movie premiere, or whatever you’re into.  If you plan your honeymoon at the right time in the right place, the possibilities are endless.
