Ginger Root

We are always seeking a magic solution to our health and sometimes the answer is so simple we might say why didn’t I try that.  Ginger  root is very cost effective and something everyone should incorporate into their daily lifestyle. Ginger has medicinal value that dates back thousands of years. It’s actually the rhizome of the ginger plant, and as a widely cultivated herb, it’s used in various forms across the world in foods, drinks, and beauty products. Ancient texts and literature from the Middle East, Asia, and Europe talk of the immense benefits of the root.  In holistic medical practices such as Chinese and Indian Ayurveda, ginger is viewed as a gift from God.

QUOTE: Fresh ginger combined with cumin and coriander helps to break down high-protein foods such as meat and beans, and lessens the formation of uric acid in the body. With beans, it counters the problems of flatulence. In Indian cooking, no dhal or bean dish is ever contemplated without the addition of ginger. Here we have a great secret of traditional cuisine – food that not only sustains life and promotes growth, but also incorporates cooking techniques that aid digestion.

THINGS YOU MAY NOT KNOW: Ginger has a very long history of use in various forms of traditional/alternative medicine. It has been used to help digestion, reduce nausea and help fight the flu and common cold, reduce muscle pain and soreness, anti-inflammatory effects, lower blood sugar and help against heart disease, lower cholesterol levels, may help prevent cancer, help fight infections and may improve brain function.

THINGS YOU MAY WANT TO SAVE: Ginger root…Why not plant your own herb garden and skip the doctors office and pharmacy.  I know grasshopper you have never been to a doctor or a pharmacy and everything you do is ala natural!!!

ZENTRAVELER SAYS: Like onions an garlic every well stocked kitchen should have ginger root.  You can chew it for a sore throat or boil it for a delicious cup of tea and use it for an energy tonic and a  host of medical treatments.
