I put this one in my notepad. Since I have HC I am intrigued by the anti-inflammatory properties.

Thanks for posting this Alley.

Recently I have been mixing 1/2 teaspoon powdered ginger in some liquid and pounding it right when I feel the shadow. I haven't really noticed any change in the headaches though

A while back I had an acupuncturist recommend ginger for my headaches.  He really felt that the amount of ginger I would need to eat would be way too ridiculous and advised ginger pills, lots.  For the milder ones it seems like it works, only problem is I seem to build up tolerance to it.  It'll work for a few days, then stop.  I can easily tell the tolerance has set in when it stops making me sweat like crazy and I take a week off.  Today I've taken 9 Ginger extract pills and 17 dried ginger pills (split into 2 doses, 1 in the morning and 1 at about 4.  Seems like it's keeping the worst of it away, when I woke up I was sure I was gonna need some triptans....
