ginger, the miraculous root
The root of the ginger plant has been used as a remedy for nausea, motion sickness, heartburn, vomiting, stomach cramps, and loss of appetite since ancient times. Ginger is consumed in China as food and as medicine. It is highly spicy and is beneficial to digestion, neutralizing poisons in food, ventilating the lungs, to warm the circulation to the limbs. The ancient greeks ate ginger wrapped in bread to easy digestion and to prevent nausea from a huge feast. Since the greeks and the roman times, ginger (in wine) was a popular aphrodisiac.
A proverb from ancient India maintains that everything good can be found in ginger (universal medicine by Ayurveda). Many herbalists treat coughs and the common cold with ginger tea.
Motion sickness is an acute condition of medical distress that results in skin pallor, weakness, nausea and vomiting. It often starts as stomach discomfort, bodily warmth, headache, dizziness and/or drowsiness, then proceeds to stomach distress, then nausea and vomiting.
Experts agree that almost no one is immune from motion sickness. Individuals who may experience no discomfort at all riding in a car or plane, might fall victim to seasickness because the ship has combined motions of pitching from back to front and rolling from side to side. The prevalence of motion sickness approaches 100% on rough seas.
Motion sickness (seasickness, car sickness, airsickness) occurs when your body is being passively transported by a vehicle (boat, car, train, airplane, amusement park ride) that is propelled by its own power. This can create a sensory conflict of information to the brain, which responds by sending distress signals to the rest of the body, particularly the autonomic nervous system and the stomach.
The first documented evidence of this condition is in ancient greek literature from the early days of seafaring history. And it is interesting to note that the english word nausea comes from the greek word for ship (naus).
For many centuries, chinese sailors have taken ginger to avoid seasickness.There is no doubt that ginger is one of the best seasick remedies: for the prevention and treatment of nausea, vomiting or dizziness associated with motion sickness. Its safe nature and multitude of benefits have made it one of the most widely used herbs in the world. Some say ginger is more effective in relieving motion sickness than Dramamine.
The healing properties of ginger are derived from its volatile oils, gingerols and shogaols which are also responsible for its pungent taste. Besides the powder and root, ginger may be purchased in capsules, pickles, extracts, and prepared teas.
Ginger may interfere with blood clotting and may stimulate uterine contractions.
Due to the possession of so many health benefits, ginger should be made a daily household item to attain a healthy life.
