In the past, many cultures used certain spices for their great medicinal value, and today ginger is still widely used in both Chinese and Indian cultures for its medicinal benefits. The medicinal value of ginger far surpasses the appearance of this simple looking root.

It can be used in the following ways:

■ As an anti-inflammatory

■ For the prevention of motion-and sea-sickness

■ As an antimicrobial to fight germs

■ To treat gastrointestinal problems (and as an antiflatulent)

■ To ease menstrual pain.

■ To treat bronchitis, colds and allergies

■ It can be steeped as a tea for nausea, colds, bronchitis, flu, and to promote circulation.
