I have always used Ginger root to treat cough and cold. As soon as I feel a cold coming on or a sore throat, I rush to buy fresh ginger roots from the grocery store, peel them and cut into small sizes that I chew in the mouth, only swallowing the juices. This works for me all the time.

Tasty & Healthy.

Ginger has been part of my diet since I have been able to cook (I am a self taught gourmet cook). Indian, and many oriental dishes use ginger. It is so aromatic & tasty. Crystallized ginger, available at most grocery stores, and health food stores, is a wonderful snack.

I have a problem with pimples. Heard it said that cutting a slice of ginger root would clear up my pimples. After two days, my pimples are almost cleared up. How do I store the ginger after cutting into it?

I had a very sore throat, felt like strep. A friend told me to chew some Ginger Root. I did so and got immediate release from the pain.

I have Parkinson's and the meds I take give
me nausea. Ginger helps tremendously, even better than the nausea meds they give me. The added benefit is how well it helps with inflammation of my joints and tendons!!

Rolling the idea over to try ginger instead of eating ibuprofen to prevent leg/back aches with being on my feet 12+ hrs as a nurse. With you receive same benefit from ginger ale soda? Is there a dosing amount proper for daily use for herbal preparations? Are there life threatening side effects like bleeding or respiratory symptoms associated with daily use?
Help. Want an alternative to ibuprofen!

I've been having GI issues for a few months, mostly nausea. I also have painful arthritis. Last night I made a cup of ginger root, green tea and about 1/4 tsp. splenda and had amazing results! Simmer about 1 1/2 inch peeled and sliced ginger root in 2 cups of boiling water. Let boil for 5-10 minutes. Toss out the ginger and pour water over 2 green tea bags. (I used a 12 oz cup). I thought it was delicious. Half way through my nausea disappeared. This morning I got out of bed without needing to hold on to the wall and saying ouch, ouch. I had taken vicodin for the pain and that in itself had it's own side effects. So I'm very thrilled to have a natural remedy that worked for me. Ginger root is the way to go!!

Have you tried a Ginger Root Bath? Another way to relieve symptoms of arthritis, constipation and restlessness. You will sleep like a baby. Bath Recipe: 2 lbs Ginger Root chopped added to a 1/2 gallon boiling water. Turn down to Simmer for 45 minutes. The water should turn brown because of the color of the Ginger Root. Run your bath. Pour this Ginger Water through a strainer into the bath water. Set in the bath at least 15 minutes. It works from the outside in. As a Massage Therapist and a Doctor of Reflexology, I've advised my clients to try this and they loved it. IT WORKS. But if too many of these baths are taken like nightly for over 3 nights the opposite of constipation will occur. Diahrea. That is what my clients had told me.

I had to stop using naproxen because of stomach bleeding that was causing me to have serious iron deficiency. I had used the naproxen only in the evening so I could sleep(1 pill). Osteoarthritis is the cause of my joint/back issues. I had read that ginger could help with inflammation. So instead of switching to another pain reliever, I started using ginger - several slices of the root a day. My pain level and stiffness have decreased to a tolerable discomfort when I am inactive too long. As long as I am active there is now little discomfort. The stomach bleeding has decreased or stopped. I made the change in June. I could feel results in August. So it didn't take all that long to make a difference. The only other change I made during that time was to begin taking an iron supplement and eating iron rich foods.

i have prostate cancer, read article about zingiber officinale helping cancer cells. I cannot find what form of it to get, where to get it, how to take it??

HerbWisdom 's avatar  HerbWisdom 04/09/2013 11:55

Hi Gary, you can buy ginger capsules online. Try to get pure capsules if possible, no fillers or binders. But the best and cheapest way to take Ginger is simply to buy fresh ginger root from your local store and then use it as a food: grate it into dishes, add slices to hot water and drink (lemon and honey are good additions).
Did you know Saw Palmetto is also widely regarded for prostate health. Obviously with you having an existing cancer you should speak to your Doctor first. You can read about Saw Palmetto on our website here: http://www.herbwisdom.com/herb-saw-palmetto.html
Good luck with the treatment.
Best regards

I've tried growing Ginger Root but it wasn't easy for me. I was using a large pot. NO GOOD. Ginger Root needs depth. So it must be planted in the grown. It's a plant that takes a while, months and sometimes years to grow. Check it out online. That's how I began growing mine. Didn't do so well.

Felt nauseous with cramps and gassy stomach, placed boiling water over sliced fresh ginger root and my problems immediately started to die down within 10-15 minutes.

I am amazed! I broke my back in two places two years ago. I have had two surgeries and have had to take tramadol and hydrocodone to control the pain. Two days ago, I was in the airport in Las Vegas and saw the candy store selling candied ginger root. I love ginger so I thought I would give it a try. While it is not for the feint of heart (very strong and hot) I seemed to be craving it. Since I started eating it, I have not needed to stronger hydrocodone even though I was traveling and sitting in an airplane! I started researching to see if the ginger could be responsible for the relief of the pain since it was the only new addition that might be responsible. I would much rather eat candied ginger than take a powerful narcotic!!!! Yea!! Now if I could get workers comp to cover the purchase of the ginger. . . .

There is nothing strange about the fact that ginger reduced your pain.
Pain comes from inflamation.Ginger is known for it's strong anti-inflamatory properties. However, I wouldn't eat candied ginger as it is soaked in sirup and in addition has lots of sugar on top and sugar is very inflamatory. Try to eat fresh ginger, add it to soups, stir fries, juices (if you have a juicer) or to shakes you make in a blender. I also love ginger tea... cook slices of ginger in water and then let it sit for a while to steep, strain and drink it with a bit of dark honey which is much healtier than sugar, has many healing properties. Good luck.

Ginger will be in my life forever. Been 6 weeks of juicing it and the 3 days i did not drink it, i can feel the difference when i did not.

When you said you juiced it, how much did you take? how many times a day?

The pain went loosing of balance stopped my Osteopath could not believe how soon I recovered. Last weekend I feel and fractured my arm, just went to the Doctor today he could not believe how quickly I can move my arm in less than a week and swelling is as if I have had the cast for 4 week.
Hope that helps.
