Excelente cure for Indigestion are: 2Tbp of Lemon,a piece of ginger root, 2Tbp of raw honey and 8ounces of water.Boil everything together and drink as tea.
The best use of ginger I have found is for common cold and cough. Take one spoon ginger juice mix it with one spoon honey. Take two times in a day.
For any ailment related to stomach take a mixture of ginger juice, lemon and black salt (total quantity one to two spoons two times in a day).
Ginger cures nausea. Fresh ginger, peeled then chopped or grated, any amount; then boiled or boiled water poured over it in a cup. Also, most health food stores and some food stores sell bagged ginger tea to make a cup. You can add sweetener if you please. Also ginger ale, crystallized ginger and sometimes even ginger cookies.
I get nauseous a lot, and I swear by crystallized ginger after eating, especially if I feel bloated or ate too much. In Ayurvedic medicine, 500 year old East Indian medicine, they believe that ginger fires up the internal digestive fire.
Ginger is very good for cancer patients and AIDs patients, cause they get nausea a lot. I've suggested it to many friend and they say it worked for them
Other cures I've used for nausea (they do not have to be used together) are:
a warm hot water bottle, wrapped on my abdomen.

EC: Hi, Sonny. We do have a page on turmeric (https://www.earthclinic.com/remedies/turmeric.html), but not much information on using the fresh root! Thanks so much for your feedback.
I completely agree. I make ginger tea whenever I feel a cold or cough coming on and it works every time. I boil ginger root in water and once boiled, I steep tea in it. I had honey and lemon to the ginger tea. Drinking four cups a day for two days will cure any cough or cold you have. It always works. A table spoon of shreaded ginger root in two cups of water (you can make it stronger/spicer by adding more ginger), two tea bags, 1/2 lime or lemon and a couple of table spoons of honey (I like my tea a little sweet). Drink two cups in the morning and two right before bed.
Ask me about turmeric next!
Ginger root -- remedy for cough caused by cold. Clean and wash the root, chew a couple and swallow the juice. Although it burns, but works very effectively.
Sucking on a .5 sq. inch piece of dried ginger cures my sore throat and other cold/flulike symptoms at their onset.You have to however bear the hotness as much as you can, until the sensation is gone. I have not suffered from a cold or flu for the last 10 years or so. For more aggressive forms, a total water & juice fast for 2 or 3 days straight does the trick for me. My roomate had a bad flu recently, it never touched me. When ending the fast, eat only raw fruits and vege for a day or so. Notice how the gradual resumption of cooked food lowers your mood and vibration.
I am into drinking all kinds of herbal teas and one day I was looking for info on herbal teas and starting reading about ginger, that evening Christmas eve I felt like I was getting a cough and cold because I started to sneeze ever 15 minutes, decided to make the ginger tea and drank 1 litre of it, the next day I was up and about, no more cough and did not sneeze it was an incredible experience, now I tell everyone about this and really encourage to drink this for anyone who feels that they are coming down with a cold or cough, try it you will feel the difference.
I want to shout this from the roof tops!
My husband has had terrible sinus congestion for months! Because it felt as though he had some sort of barrier in his left nostril, even his CPAP machine wasn't allowing him to breathe. Sleepless night... tons of money on meds... countless nosebleeds because of all of the nasal sprays... he was miserable and feeling a little desperate.
Then, as the last resort, I searched and came across your ginger root remedy. $2.00 for a huge ginger root that I peeled, cut into chunks and steeped for 4 hours in a pot of water with 2 green tea bags. Dan sipped on the surprisingly yummy tea all evening, and for the first time in MONTHS, he's completely clear! There wasn't a dramatic loss of mucus, but for whatever reason, I believe it shrunk the swollen nasal passages, and for the last 3 nights in a row, he's slept ALL night, clear as a bell! He didn't even snore! I can't even begin to tell you what a HUGE blessing this remendy is for us.
I work with a Japanese woman who told me that ginger root also helps digestive issues and menstral cramps. We've decided to make ginger root tea part of our daily routine. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!!
Sinus Cure I had really bad sinus congestion about a month.After trying all kinds of over the counter products I decided to try a natural remedy using fresh ginger root.I cut about 2-3 onces off the ginger root, peeled it.Then I placed it inside a tea cup of water and put it in the micro wave for 3 minutes and allowed it to cool a little before sipping.I did not notice the results until three days later, I went to blow my nose and lots of brown mucus came out of my nose.I drank a few more cups after that and now I feel clear and more better.
Sometime ago a gal friend was wearing a wrist brace for carpal tunnel. I told her about ginger root and gave her about ten capsules to try. About one week later I saw her and asked about the results. She said it helped with the carpal tunnel but it made the biggest difference with her menstrual cramps within about 15 to 20 minutes!
Re Fresh ginger and garlic: At dinner recently, eating a whole roasted fish, a small bone pierced the back of my mouth, above the throat. The next day I ahd a very sore throat on one side. It grew worse and my ear on the same side started to ache, as well as my scalp. I associated it with the fishbone... I was afraid that I had picked up an infection from the bone (and of course I'd Googled this possibility, too!). Not having the time to find a dcotor and have antibiotics prescribed,I started dosing myself with two thin slices of raw ginger every two hours. I also choppped fresh garlic and put salt on it to draw out the juice, then dabbed the juice directly on the little wound in my mouth. Within 16 hours the pain was gone, and the little red spot at the back of my throat has now disappeared (two days later). It could be coincidence, but I'm pretty convinced that the fresh, raw ginger and garlic with their antibiotic properties cured me.
I would take a slice of ginger and chew for about 5 minutes. I would sense this to cleanse my gum line and wash away any germs. Also, if a tooth acted up, a piece of ginger placed there would bring relief. I feel that it got rid of a pile of bacterior in the mouth and cleansed the system too. What a gift!
I use ginger to prevent this horrific rash. I juice a pound of root into a couple dozen mini ice cubes and plop them into my teas, soups, sauces, stews, etc. I am curious that only the yellow ginger root works and not the brown ginger. Would appreciate feedback on the difference between the two types. I've had the rash for over ten years. Just discovered the ginger remedy over a year ago. I have appr. twenty pounds(pre-juice weight) of frozen ginger cubes in my freezer because I am such a strong believer in it's power to keep my horrific rash in check.
I am of Korean descent, and for as long as I can remember, my grandparents and my mother have been using ginger for a few different ailments. Recently, I noticed with the cold weather, the flu bug was going around and I have had some pain and swelling in my wrists and finger joints. I made tea by boiling one ginger root, sliced and diced, in some water, added some fresh lemon juice and the peel (how it was done forever in my household) and added honey into my cup. it isn't a cure for a cold, but it certainly helps to relieve symptoms. i took the warm ginger remains out of the pot and mashed it up and applied it topically to my wrists and fingers. the pain is substantially alleviated. if you can handle the smell, it is worth a try. this is not a cure for arthritis, but a natural and very healthy way of relieving pain. there is also a link to show studies done by the U of Maryland on ginger and what ailments it helps with. hope this helps. http://www.umm.edu/altmed/ConsHerbs/Gingerch.html
