Ginger: Common Spice and Wonder Drug
By Paul Schulick
Publication date: 2001
Not a single drug can rival the power of ginger. How could a spice adored world-wide for its lively flavour conceivably revolutionise medicine as we know it today? Inspired by ginger's 5000-year history, Paul Schulick began a revealing investigation that ultimately linked the claims of the ancient herbals to the remarkable and extensive findings of international medical research.
For thousands of years ginger has been one of the world's most favored spices and a major ingredient in Oriental remedies. Yet ginger's precious healing values are still virtually unknown and ignored in the modern world. This book proposes that your spice cabinet contains a healing substance that is beyond the therapeutic scope of any modern drug; a substance with the potential to save billions of dollars and countless lives. Calling ginger "the universal medicine," the author surveys the ancient claims of ginger's effective health usage as these are verified by international medical research. Supported by hundreds of scientific studies, this book leads the reader to discover the extraordinary personal and social benefits of using ginger. Among the medicinal uses of ginger are:
daily energy tonic
natural therapy for colds and headache
relief of menstrual discomfort, nausea and parasites.
A wonderful collection of information. A convincing case." -- Andrew Weil, M.D., best-selling author of Spontaneous Healing
