Digestive Health

               Ginger is scientifically known as Zingiber Officinale. It has been gratefully consumed as medicine and culinary spice. This species is a relative of other common culinary spices such as tumeric, cardamon, and galangal. It's no suprised that this plant is indigenous to Southern China where it has been used as medicine for thousands of years.



The use of this root in culinary dishes dates way back. It has a strong taste and bites the tongue. A decoction can be prepared by boiling the root in some good, fluoride free water. A nice infusion can be made with some real honey added ( preferable raw honey or honey obtained from a local bee-keeper ). The root can be used to make cookies, crackers , cakes, soda, and even beer. It's well known to improve digestive health.


               A decoction or tea made from this plant is great when you're sick. I find it very useful for decreasing the duration of a cold and easing the symptoms associated with it. It seems to help with a sore throat also. Aside from my personal experiences with it, there are a number of studies that seem to back up its effectiveness. There is also science behind this historic plant. According to the American Cancer Society, it has been promoted as a cancer treatment to "keep tumors from developing". They would like to conduct further research on this matter and I hope to see them do so.


In other studies it was found to be effective in the treatment of nausea and even useful with chemotherapy. There are chemicals in the root naturally produced by the plant known as zingerone, shagaois and gingerols. Studies have shown that these gingerols increase the motility of the gastrointestinal tract and have analgesic, sedative, antipyretic and antibacterial properties. Even the University of Michigan has shown that these gingerols can inhibit the growth of ovarian cancer cells in vitro.


This is only a small portion of the benefits this sacred herb has to offer. All throughout history plants such as this one have had many successful medical applications among people all around the world. Today we are beginning to finally shed some scientific light behind what makes them tick. All of the evidence makes it perfectly clear that plants produced their own pharmacological compounds. The number of plants and medicinal compounds produced by these plants are endless. I say it's time for the world to wake up and spend more time researching and embracing the use of these alternative healing tools.
