Ginger (Zingiber officinale) is the most widely available and widely used herbal remedy on the planet. Billions of people use ginger daily as food and medicine.
-For 2,500 years, ginger has played an important role in Asian medicine. It has traditionally been used to promote cleansing of the body through perspiration, to calm nausea, and to stimulate the appetite.
-Ginger is an effective and universal remedy for inflammation and pain. The German Commission E has approved it for loss of appetite, travel sickness, and indigestion related complaints.
-Ginger contains a chemical called zingibain, which dissolves parasites and their eggs. In the laboratory, ginger extracts have been shown to kill the anisakid worm, a parasite sometimes carried in raw fish, within 16 hours, about the length of time the parasite would have to establish itself in the digestive tract after consumption of contaminated fish. In addition, ginger tea is useful as a supplement in treating schistosomiasis, a parasitic disease increasingly prevalent among tourists returning to the United States.
