Benefits of Ginger


Ginger is a flowering plant whose ginger root and rhizome are used in different spices and traditional medicines. Its Latin name is Zingiber officinale. Ginger comes in the family of Zingiberaceae, to which also belong turmeric , cardamom and galangal and is probably native to southeastern Asia. Its generic name Zingiber was derived from the Greek Zingiberis, which comes from the Sanskrit name of the spice, Singabera which means “shaped like a horn”.

In India, Ayurvedic texts consider ginger to be one of the most important herbs available to mankind. Ayurvedic practitioners prescribe ginger as a powerful digestive aid since it fuels digestive fire, whets the appetite, and clears the body’s micro-circulatory channels. Ginger is also used in Ayurveda as a remedy for joint pain, nausea and motion sickness.

Objective of Ayurveda at our facility!

 

There are two complementary aims of this discipline. The first is to maintain the health of those who are well. This entails specific diet and nutrition, hygiene, living habits, exercises and stabilizing techniques. Following these guidelines enables  a healthy person to maintain health and increase  their life-span. The other is to cure diseases of those who are sick. This aspect relates to  various diseases, their causes, diagnosis, remedies and therapies to cure and prevent relapses of illness.

Although both of these aims are connected and are comprehensive areas in their own right, the primary focus of this science is to maintain your health from the outset. This is done on a daily basis with attention to diet and lifestyle, helping the body and mind to be clean and stable. In this way, diseases do not find ground for establishment and growth.

A patient being treated with Ayurveda is considered as the total combination of body, mind, senses and soul. The Ayurvedic doctor aims to achieve complete health for the patient, not just to suppress or alleviate troubling physical symptoms. The approach is to diagnose the root cause and eliminate it, allowing genuine healing to
take place.
