Ginger Overdose

It was a hard week at Saisons, the gastronomic restaurant in the Institut Paul Bocuse: not only were we cooking, but we also created the menu. While I'm working, I have a habit of eating slices of raw ginger, as it has several qualities that help me in the kitchen. It's great for energy and concentration, and it keeps me awake and active. During our last service on Friday night I started to eat a bit too much of it, and at one point my body temperature rose to a point where I was too hyperactive, I was breathing really fast and I just couldn't stop moving. I enjoyed it, but I also learned that I should start taking smaller doses. I accept it: my name is Rodrigo Pacheco and I am a ginger addict.

I recently couldn't have enough of the sliced ginger everytime I eat at the sushi restaurant. I've just bought 1kg bag of it and start eating them like a snack. I was curios if there is such thing like ginger overdose. I googled and bumped on your blog....hahaha..... We have something in common. Hi! I'm Palupi and I think I'm a ginger addict too. I hope I won't die of ginger overdose(^_^)

One of the side effects of ginger overdose is sleepyness and disorientation. I take it with medications that make me nauseous, so I googled it!

Once i had a really bad cold or flu and my mom made me ginger tea, she thinks she put way too much ginger. i was hallucinating and running around the house speaking in tongues. none of which i remember. i woke up a while later when they were driving me to the hospital. lol.

Now, im a bit curious about ginger overdose since i eat one big chunk a day (that i think is about 50-100 grams), and i just ENJOY the burning sensation!!

I know its too much, but if there aren't serious side effects why should i stop..?

hi every one
i got a bag of crystallized ginger which is 400 gram and it says it contains 16 serve( each serve is 25 gram) and i finished it in two days only which was too much but i did not know that.
two days later i started having pain in my throat and chest
and it has been going on for 5 days now
did any one face such thing?
is it something serious?

Big ginger fan too,
is it better to snack it in the morning?
Shreded ginger with honey, which would be the right daily amount?

I just ate a bulb off the end of a ginger root straight... definitely feeling the after burn :/ on the bright side - it completely suppressed my cough :)
