Have you heard people use the term “the miracle of nature”?
Most of the time it’s a term used to describe something inexplicable, but I’ve found natural cures that are quite miraculous.
One of them I wouldn’t live without, and if you’re not using it already, you need to start now…
That miraculous natural cure…
You may have heard of the amazing benefits of ginger, but did you know that it’s also a natural wonder?
The root has been used for medicinal purposes dating back thousands of years/
Perhaps you’ve used it to soothe your stomach or ease a headache.
You might have even tried cooking with it, but did you know it can solve a lot of other issues…
Ginger is a natural anti-inflammatory that helps to reduce joint pain and stiffness. While it may not be the cure for arthritis, it does have the ability to alleviate some of its symptoms.
It’s great for digestion because it contains gingerols, which are powerful antioxidants that help to improve gut health.
Ginger can also help you sleep better at night by helping your body relax and lowering stress levels.
But here’s where it gets even more interesting:
Ginger can be a major help when it comes to…
Colds and flu: The anti-inflammatory properties of ginger are helpful in relieving symptoms like coughing, stuffy noses and sore throats. It also helps to reduce fever by stimulating blood flow to the surface of the skin.
Nausea: If you’ve ever felt queasy from motion sickness or morning sickness, ginger can help ease nausea symptoms by relaxing muscles in your stomach lining while also stimulating saliva production (which helps reduce acidity).
Heartburn: Many people take antacids to relieve heartburn, but these drugs don’t address the underlying cause—and they may have serious side effects over time! One study found that daily use of raw minced ginger was just as effective at reducing reflux symptoms as 20 milligrams of omeprazole (a drug commonly prescribed for gastroesophageal reflux disease), but with fewer side effects like indigestion or difficulty swallowing food.
With that all in mind, you’re probably asking what the easiest and best way to incorporate it into your diet is.
I like to incorporate it into my cooking.
It can be used in sweet and savory dishes, and it’s especially good at adding depth to meat dishes.
The best way to use ginger is fresh (though dried will work).
If you don’t have fresh on hand, look for one that’s firm with smooth skin (as opposed to wrinkled).
You can also use ground or powdered ginger as an alternative—just make sure the label says 100% ground or powdered gingersnap!
Who knew ginger was such a miraculous cure for so many every day issues?
Start incorporating it into your diet, and you should see the benefits kick in almost immediately.
