The Health Segment — Ginger: It’s More Than Just a Cute Name for a Girl

Ginger or ginger root as defined by Wikipedia is “the rhizome of the plant Zingiber officinale, consumed as a delicacy, medicine, or spice. It lends its name to its genus and family. Other notable members of this plant family are turmeric, cardamom, and galangal.”

I can recall few years ago talking to someone at my church about monthly cramps and the aches and pains that came along with them. One of the elders overheard our conversation and he, yes I said he, mentioned that ginger root alleviates menstrual cramps.

At that time I wasn’t aware of ginger root being a remedy for cramps, but after doing some research I learned that ginger was not only good for menstrual cramping, but also beneficial for ovarian and colon cancer treatment, morning sickness, motion sickness, pain/inflammation, heartburn relief, cold and flu prevention and treatment, migraine relief, and the prevention of diabetic nephropathy.

So use ginger in its root, powder or crystallized form to add a little spice to any breakfast, lunch, dinner, or snack.
