    Default Eight Unexpected Health Benefits of Ginger

    If you only think of ginger as a condiment that you eat with sushi, say "Hello" to the powerful therapeutic benefits this plant packs into its roots

    Plant-based health alternatives are growing in popularity as more and more people wake up to the potential harms from prescription and over the counter (OTC) drugs. Acetaminophen, for example, is in more than 600 medications, both OTC and prescribed,[i]and represents one of the leading causes of acute liver failure worldwide.[ii]
    Individuals seeking a more holistic approach to wellness often look to the plant kingdom for truly traditional medicine. According to the U.S. Forest Service, humans have been using plants to heal and maintain wellness for more than 60,000 years.[iii] Humanity co-evolved with plants in symbiotic fashion, rendering plant-based therapeutics gently effective for regulating body chemistry.

    I prefer this article to the "50 Ways" article I posted a few months back. It's condensed into a shorter but more specific and useful list of the multiple benefits of ginger root. Personally, I like it so much that I am experimenting with growing my own. You have to begin by burying the roots in early February, wrapped in plastic to keep the moisture in, and placed in a warm spot until it begins to sprout. Mine is now about 2 feet tall and thriving; I can't wait to see the results when I finally dig up a piece to use in a meal… Because I really do like ginger in any form!

    We are so fortunate here to have fresh local ginger root available at the farm stands almost all year around. If one buys quite a bit of it when it is abundant, it can be frozen so that we still have some available in the freezer, when it is too dry to be growing.

    One of the advantages to a tropical location! When I used it more sparingly, I found I could keep it frozen, then take it out and slice or grate the frozen root, then return it to the freezer. But I've become so fond of it that I can use an entire store-bought root while it's still relatively fresh.

    Even though ginger is grown in the tropical parts of Australia, it's still rather expensive, and I don't let any go to waste. I'm sure I've mentioned this before, but I grind it up in my mini food processor, fill ice cube trays and freeze. It's enough for one meal or a cup of ginger tea, and always ready.

    That sounds like an excellent idea, Julie. Can you tell us how much, by teaspoon or tablespoon, you use for one cup of tea?

    Maybe around two heaped teaspoons? Never measured it.
