So a couple weeks ago I had a super exciting meeting. ok, maybe not so much a meeting  
and more like coffee with a friend I haven’t seen in awhile.

Many people use candied ginger to settle an upset stomach perhaps because it neutralizes toxins and helps digestion. What you may not know is that ginger has heating qualities, good for vata and pitta constitutions.
