Throughout the world, fresh ginger would be prominent on most people?s lists of their top 10 favorite home remedies. In the West, the first encounter we might have had with ginger was the ginger ale that our mother gave us to settle our stomachs when we were ill. And who doesn't love the fragrance of gingerbread fresh from the oven?

Fresh ginger far surpasses the medicinal values of processed ginger. It is used as an effective treatment for a variety of conditions ranging from gastrointestinal distress to arthritis, as well as laryngitis.

Fresh ginger root is pungent, spicy and aromatic. Compounds within the root, especially gingerol and shogaol, act against infection and inflammation as well as supporting tissue regeneration. This is why fresh ginger is an effective home cure for laryngitis. It is also very soothing to the mucous membranes surrounding the voice box.

  • Eat thin slices of ginger. According to one EC contributor: "It's spicy but your voice will come back very quick; it brings down swelling and if you can't stand to eat it, make a tea from fresh ginger root."
  • Another reader suggests peeling and slicing fresh ginger root, adding a dash of salt and fresh lemon juice until the pieces immerse. Keep in the fridge and take 1 or 2 pieces every day, both morning and afternoon.
