Walter, Denise....I noticed Suki has been hacking during eating which is freaking me out because she is having major mouth surgery on Tuesday. I think I should give her some SE to help relax her esophagus....what do you think?

I don't think it will hurt. You could also take ginger seep it, put a tiny bit of sorbet and then once cooled give her the ginger water, you could add a little more sorbet in it - raspberry is especially good. Especially refreshing and soothing.

I give her ginger mint with her meals, is that the same?
I noticed it more if I crumble the toppers that I put on her meals...maybe just too dry not having teeth, idk.

I take about an inch of ginger root and slice it thin - put it in boiling water, take it off the heat and let it seep until it is cool. Strain it and put sorbet in it. (You gave me an idea - I have to make mint sorbet - that sounds good.) I put sorbet in it because ginger is bitter on its own. You could also do a ginger mint tea. Ginger has a lot of benefits and is good for the throat.

I think it would be worth trying at least. AE sells both ginger and slippery elm. I just know for me I am picky about where I get my oils and supplements. I love Walter’s idea of boiling fresh ginger. I would mix with something as well. Not only does it it taste bitter but it can be very warming (a burning sensation for most). Please keep us posted I am very interested in what all works.
