I have been having digestive problems, mostly gone now, but would like to help regulate my bowels better. Can I take this herb or is there another recommended?

Ginger may potentiate the effects of anticoagulants, platelet inhibitors and thrombolytic agents, possibly increasing the risk of bleeding. Limited data suggest that ginger may decrease platelet aggregation via the inhibition of thromboxane synthetase, although some studies have found no effect on platelet function or thromboxane production or activity.
You should consult your doctor before taking any herbal or alternative medicine. You should promptly report any signs of bleeding to your doctor, including pain, swelling, headache, dizziness, weakness, prolonged bleeding from cuts, increased menstrual flow, vaginal bleeding, nosebleeds, bleeding of gums from brushing, unusual bleeding or bruising, red or brown urine, or red or black stools.
