Natural Standard's featured CE/CME for the month of December is Ginger: Safety & Effectiveness.
The rhizomes and stems of ginger have assumed significant roles in Chinese, Japanese and Indian medicine since the 1500s. The oleoresin of ginger is often contained in digestive, antitussive, antiflatulent, laxative and antacid compounds. There is supportive evidence from several clinical trials that ginger reduces the severity and duration of nausea/vomiting due to chemotherapy. Effects appear to be additive to prochlorperazine (Compazine®). The optimal dose remains unclear. Ginger's effects on other types of nausea/vomiting, such as postoperative nausea or motion sickness, remain indeterminate.
