Ginger is an amazing spice and highly recommended to keep on hand and use frequently. Its therapeutic health benefits have been documented for thousands of years and widely recommended by health practitioners. It is a delicious addition to many dishes added to green smoothies, soothing a sore throat or an upset stomach.
The most commonly used part of the ginger plant used for medicinal purposes is the stem like root that grows underground. It originated in Asia and is valued around the world for both flavoring and for its health benefits. Ginger is a rich source of antioxidants; it is antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, antiviral, and has anti-parasitic properties as well.
Ginger can be used fresh, dried, in teas, extracts or for serious conditions, your health care provider may recommend therapeutic doses. Cut up pieces about the size of your finger nail and freeze to have on hand. For example, an amazing way to start your day is with a cup of lemon ginger detox tea. Natural, unprocessed whole food, organic when possible is always the first choices of the Dr. Lavender and Dr. Jarman, a chiropractor in Gilbert and wellness practitioners.
