My average AHI (treated) dropped from 2.6 to 1.7 when I started taking fresh ginger root daily to thin my blood and get off an irreversible anti-coagulant.

Prior sample Jan 29 - Feb 20, Postsample Feb 21 - Apr 28

AHI (treated) dropped from 2.6 to 1.7 CAA went from an average of 8.3 to 2.0 Obstructive apneas dropped 1.0 to .5 Hypopneas remained the same at 7.0

The chart shows an immediate effect.

Might be worth a look.

I fully consume a root portion the volume of my thumb the length of my nail, twice daily. Once in the morning and once before bed.

I wish that would work for me, but there are numerous individual reasons for why we experience what we do. My CAs are the result of a silent stroke. Yes, I do take 81mg ASA (baby aspirin) daily. Luckily I do not need blood thinners in any way. Hope it continues to work for you.

What I find ginger to be of great value for, is my indigestion! Since I am an incessant worrier, I have always carried candied ginger in my purse. No Tums for me. It takes just a small chip of the ginger (one half inch sliver) and my tummy settles down. This has always amazed me as ginger is so tart tasting.

It's wonderful that you found something that works like that. So much is trial and error and very often what works for one won't for another. Thank you for posting!
