Ginger – The Herbal remedy.


Ginger (Zingiber officinale), can be used in so many different ways
from transforming digestive and bowel issues, to clearing poisons,
to heating the body, to improving the circulation, to preventing
heart disease and removing inflammation and pain; it does it all!

Originally from Southeastern Asia, ginger is mentioned positively
in ancient Chinese, Indian and Middle Eastern writings.

Traditional use and scientific research confirm that ginger:

Then ginger could be your new best friend. Take it in powdered
form, grate it into tea while fasting, add to meals or simply eat

adds a special flavor and zest. The great news is that fresh ginger
root (the underground rhizome part) is available year round.

Sweet & Spice & everything nice

Ginger has a long tradition of alleviating symptoms of
gastrointestinal distress and is regarded as an excellent
carminative (a substance which promotes the elimination of
intestinal gas) and intestinal spasmolytic (a substance which
relaxes and soothes the intestinal tract). Ginger has been shown to
be far superior to Dramamine (the commonly used over-the-counter
drug for motion sickness), in studies as it reduces all symptoms
associated with motion sickness including dizziness, nausea,
vomiting, and cold sweating. Chinese herbal medicine considers
ginger to have a moderating or detoxifying effect on other more
harsh herbs which is why it is found as a component of many
different Chinese herbal formulas.
