Sharing this: And, here’s my recipe for homemade ginger ale (because ginger ale doesn’t really have ginger and it is filled with sugar) Ingredients 2 cups water One 6 inch piece of ginger sliced into thin slices 1 tablespoon powdered ginger 2 tablespoons powdered stevia or 2 teaspoons liquid stevia (perhaps more to taste) Instructions: Boil water and sliced ginger Whisk in powdered ginger and stevia Simmer on medium low until reduced by 1/2 about 10 minutes Strain off ginger slices with slotted spoon or strainer Cool Add 3 tablespoons of ginger reduction and a squeeze of lime to 1 cup seltzer water or club soda Enjoy! Love and light everyone! Epilepsy can be a gift and not a burden. I wish you all the best on your journey!

OMG, thank you so much for this recipe! I keep ginger beer stocked for my postictal phase, it's good for nausea. I had no idea it could be used for prevention! I'm gonna up my Chai intake haha, amazing! If you have more info to share on how epilepsy can be a gift and not a burden, i'm open to learning more. I am at a new stage, where I am finally fully embracing this as a part of me. I accept it as the gift it is. And i'm excited to learn more about viewing my epilepsy as a gift, and not being afraid of it or ashamed about it.
