    The very name of Ginger in Sanskrit language mentioned as ” Vishvaushadha” should suggest that it is a medicine for all ailments. This indirectly advises us to be liberal in using Ginger in our day-to-day life as a part of our food item. When taken along with food regularly, this has the power to correct and bring to balance harmful effect of any item of unnatural food which may not suit one and which one might have taken unknowingly. Our whole existence, life and well-being depend on the nutritive food we take.

    If you are looking for a natural way to relieve your knee pain, a number of foods have anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving properties. One such item is Ginger. Include it in the daily diet which will lead to long-term benefits in the health of your knees.

    Ginger traditionally is used to relieve an upset stomach , but it also reduces knee- pain by decreasing inflammation . So using ginger in the recipes has the double effect and advantaage of maintaining good digestion while decreasing knee-pain too.

    I have read the above from a recent health journal which I thought of sharing with all of you.

    Ginger for reducing nausea or eliminate nausea and vomiting caused by chemotherapy?

    The following is a news item appearing recently in one of the foreign medical journal on Ginger:-

    There is evidence that when taken with standard anti-nausea medications, ginger can be helpful in further reducing or eliminating nausea and vomiting during and after chemotherapy treatments
    Results from two studies of adults who took ginger for nausea showed that various doses of ginger before starting chemotherapy treatments helped to reduce the severity of nausea. In these studies, participants began taking ginger orally three days prior to starting chemotherapy. The ginger was taken in addition to a standard medication prescribed to reduce nausea and vomiting. A small number of participants reported side effects including heartburn, bruising, flushing and rash. In another study, taking ginger root powder was effective in reducing the severity of chemotherapy-induced nausea in children and young adults ages 8 to 21. Ginger in this study was also given along with standard anti-nausea medications.

    Earlier studies had shown ginger to be of little or no benefit in reducing nausea and vomiting due to chemotherapy.
