Ginger is native to India, where the ancient Ayuvedics used it to preserve food, as a digestive aid, and as a spiritual and physical cleanser. Garlic was shunned on the legs leading up to religious festivities, but plenty of Ginger would be consumed in order to be sweet - smelling and purified for the gods. The Greeks wrapped the root in a piece of bread and ate it after a heavy meal to prevent indigestion – this is the origin of gingerbread.
NOTE CLASSIFICATION: Base to Middle.
HOW TO USE
Ginger increases Pitta in the body, reducing both Kapha and Vátha. Its muscle-relaxing, heating Pitta qualities can warm uterine walls, soothing menstrual cramps. It is also frequently used as an antidote to travel sickness. For motion sickness (on land, sea, or in the air), use a few drops of ginger oil on a small bandage and place behind the ear. Alternatively, you may take Ginger capsules, or make a Ginger tea with 2 teaspoons of the grated root to 1 cup of boiling water. Let it steep for 5 minutes. Of course, you could also sip a glass of ginger ale (provided it is made from real, not synthetic, ginger).
