I had tremendous pain under my left ribcage over the weekend; like the soreness after a surgery combined with a horse kicking you. Difficult to take a deep breath without severe pain. Considered going to the ER, but it was the weekend and I wasn't sure it wasn't just something minor. Researched a lot (including here) and assumed it was inflamed spleen.
Slept, ate mostly cooked vegetables (potato soup) and a dozen tangerines, drank peppermint tea and chewed on ginger for the last three days. Am 95% better today and continuing with the ginger (making tea and then eating the ginger) and citrus. Thanks for the recommendation - not only for my health, but for my pocketbook.
Ginger root is good for the spleen... Also figs are good to rid the body of gallstones... Also, ginger work s to rid the body of blood clots... God Bless you
