Ginger - Herbs for Healing Newsletter

Ginger and turmeric come from the same plant family, the zingiberaceae. Both rhizomes have antiinflammatory properties.

Like turmeric, ginger also helps to ease inflammation and pain. It can significantly reduce symptoms of osteoarthritis in the knee or other inflammations in the body.
Over the last 30 or 40 years many laboratories have provided scientific support that ginger shares pharmacological properties with non-steroidal antiinflammatory drugs. More interestingly, ginger has a better therapeutic profile and fewer side effects.

Herbal treatment should not be reduced to being purely a drug replacement however... The holistic approach goes much further and aims to address the root cause of inflammatory processes by also looking at diet, life style and emotional aspects, for example.
