Ginger is powerful medicine! I have been consuming ginger every day and found it to be very effective in helping with any kind of inflammation – especially hay fever in the springtime. Ginger is anti-viral and anti-inflammatory as well as being a powerful antiseptic and antihistamine. They say it works powerfully on allergies to reduce symptoms of hay fever, colds, and sinus infections. New studies show that it has properties that are even rivaling anti-inflammatory drugs on the market. And it’s cheap and easy to find.  It even works on breaking down existing inflammation and acidity in the fluid that can make for painful joints and arthritis.

study was done at the University of Denmark on arthritic patients. Each patient was given small amounts of ginger for three months. Almost all the patients had significant improvement in pain, swelling, and morning stiffness by eating ginger daily.

Effective as ibuprofen

Ginger has also been found to be as effective as ibuprofen in relieving pain from menstrual cramps in women.  It has also been helping those with asthma by adding ginger compounds to isoproterenol, a type of asthma medication. Because ginger enhances bronchodilation and is anti-inflammatory, it helps to open the airways of those who suffer from asthma.

Breathe more clearly during allergy season

There are so many benefits to ginger that  I found pages and pages of studies and research, but the real proof in the pudding is how it makes me and my family feel. My daughter Maci said that ginger has helped her breathe more clearly when pollen counts are high and has devised this recipe with fresh ginger root. I’ve been placing a one-inch slice of ginger root in my smoothies or juices every day. It’s got a kick to it and I love the taste, and I do feel my sinuses open up like crazy. Don’t use too much because it’s really strong and can knock your socks off!

Isn’t it wonderful there are foods available for us to consume and use in our daily lives that are more helpful than drugs? Do you think that in years ahead they will look back at us and shake their heads that we used drugs instead of foods to heal? I encourage you to try adding ginger to your diet and see if it doesn’t bring healing to your life.

When you find a food that heals, celebrate and tell everyone!

Ingredients

15ounces ready made Kombucha
1Tbsp lemon juicefreshly squeezed
2inch slice of ginger root

Instructions

1.       Using a clean garlic press, squeeze the ginger root through the garlic press. You can also use a juicer to extract the juice. Fresh-squeezed ginger works much better than placing a piece of ginger root in the bottle to ferment with the kombucha.
2.       Place all ingredients in a thick glass bottle made for brewing, leaving a little headspace at the top of the bottle.
3.       Clamp the bottle closed and date the bottle so you’ll know how long it has fermented.
4.       Let the kombucha sit on your counter for anywhere from a few days to several weeks. It depends on how strong your kombucha is and how warm your house is. Check it every day by opening the bottle. When you find it bubbly it is ready.
5.       Once it’s bubbly and suits your taste, transfer to the refrigerator.

Recipe Notes

Make sure your kombucha is not overly done and tasting vinegary. Make this recipe when the kombucha is still a tad sweet and you will like it better. It will also be more bubbly.
