Ginger is a magical natural remedy. It’s not that it’s only delicious, but it’s anti-inflammatory, anti-paralytic, anti-viral, and anti-bacterial. It’s one of the best cures when it comes to treating cold and flu.
Most known benefits are against infection, enhances the immune system, fights off colds and other viruses, improves circulation, reduces the risk of kidney stones and charges the body with the needed nutrients to make sure the liver works efficiently.
As a spicy nutrient, it’s more powerful in cold winter because it has a very warming effect. This ultimate natural medicine fights off colds and other viruses, congestion and sinus problems.
Instead of tons of antibiotics, get the ginger powdered and add it in your tea in combination with honey. This is the best treat when cold is on its way. Just be sure to add the honey after removing the tea from heat.
This tea is also helpful when treating stomach problems, indigestion and nausea. The trick when treating colds is that ginger causes sweating, enkindles Agni (the digestive fire). Meals with ginger are lighter and easier to digest.
Take a bath when you feel pain and aches. Grate the ginger and put it in a cloth and put the ginger package over the tap so that the water is infused as it comes out of the tap. It helps reduce pain. Plus, it is relaxing and refreshing.
Ginger increases blood flow, helps draw toxins out of the kidney area which help dissolve hardened masses such as stones.
Use organically grown ginger root. When it is fresh, it contains more water and it is milder.
It is more powerful when it is in combination with turmeric.
