When it comes to old holistic medicine, ginger is a frequent go-to. I can absolutely attest to its abilities when it comes to settling the stomach and helping with digestion. Ginger has been used for thousands of years in China to treat nausea, arthritis, and heart disease. But let’s get into how we make our own “ginger ale” for nausea and pain.
Ginger has been shown to ease muscle pain, as well as back pain. In addition, it has been shown to reduce inflammation. Women have been able to find relief from menstrual pain. Relief from the pain of migraines has also been experienced.
Many studies have shown that ginger appears to have anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties. Modern scientific research has revealed that ginger is able to inhibit the formation of inflammatory compounds, and direct anti-inflammatory effects.
