Chinese Herb: Gan Jiang (dried Ginger)
Zingiber Officinale; Rhizoma Zingiberis
First appearing in a 2nd Century Materia Medica, Dried Ginger rhizome is an interior-warming herb that warms the channels, stops bleeding, and dispels cold and dampness. This common herb is acrid and hot in energy, and enters the Heart, Lung, Spleen, and Stomach meridians.
Heart, Lung, Spleen, Stomach
Ginger is a tropical plant that has green-purple flowers and a fragrant underground stem (called a rhizome). It is widely used as a flavoring or fragrance in foods, beverages, soaps, and cosmetics.
Ancient Sanskrit, Chinese, Greek, Roman, and Arabic texts discussed the use of ginger for health-related purposes. In Asian medicine, dried ginger has been used for thousands of years to treat stomach ache, diarrhea, and nausea.
Today, ginger is used as a dietary supplement for postsurgery nausea; nausea caused by motion, chemotherapy, or pregnancy; rheumatoid arthritis; and osteoarthritis.
Common forms of ginger include the fresh or dried root, tablets, capsules, liquid extracts, and teas.
