Dr. James Geiger, Anesthesiologist, explains how he prevents post-operative nausea through aromatherapy using ginger essential oil.
Dr. James Geiger says, In my career as an anesthesiologist, I have emphasized use of ginger root essential oil due to a specific need of my specialty–preventing and treating post-operative nausea. I conducted a statistical analysis on one hundred of my anesthetized patients evaluated to be at high risk for nausea to prove to myself that ginger oil works to curb side-effects of anesthesia. Essential oil of ginger made a difference in patient outcomes by preventing nausea in the recovery room after surgery. The results were so remarkable that they were in the Journal of Aromatherapy in 2005.
