Ginger: Powerful Medicine

GingerYou are probably familiar with taking Ginger for nausea, whether from motion sickness or pregnancy. But Ginger has much more to offer. Ginger is rich in phytonutrients called gingerols, which have anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antibacterial and antiviral health benefits.


Ginger can help with (1) :

  • Acute infections, fever, common cold

  • Acute and chronic bronchitis, asthma

  • Digestive weakness, indigestion, intestinal colic, abdominal bloating, flatulence

  • Osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis

  • Painful menstruation, endometriosis

  • Impaired peripheral circulation, Raynaud’s syndrome

  • Nausea and vomiting during pregnancy (2)

  • Chemo-therapy induced nausea and vomiting (3)

How to include ginger into your daily eating habits?

  • Add grated ginger and coconut oil to your breakfast cereal for a tropical flavour.

  • Add grated ginger to your stir-fries and seafood for a tasty kick.

  • Add ginger to your smoothies and fresh juices.

  • Make an energising ginger tea by simply adding boiling water to approx. 1 teaspoon of grated ginger per cup and allow to sit for 10 minutes before drinking.

  • Drink your last ginger tea before bed. Ginger promotes good circulation and removes waste products that are likely to accumulate around your joints especially when you are resting.

Food is medicine

According to Health Freedom News (4), arthritis patients were given just under a tablespoon of ginger daily for three months, either in the form of 5 grams of fresh ginger root or 1½ grams of ginger powder.  Both forms worked equally well. Every one of the patients noted marked improvement: ability to get around better, less swelling and less start-of-the-day stiffness.


Although a natural remedy, be cautious in peptic ulcerations, gallstones and with warfarin (1).

I loved your approach: warm and professional, friendly and calm. I came away with lots of hope and feel better just for that. I really liked the simplicity of your approach and appreciated that you didn't overload me with supplements or things to do. Seemed a lovely balance of dealing with the most important in a simple, practical way. And I liked that you were very attuned to what would actually work for me. — Chantal
Anita’s input was extremely useful. Her state-of the-art machine detected some intolerance to certain food groups from a mere hair sample. Anita’s findings quickly resolved my on-an-off bloating sensation and lethargic state. Not bad for a Canberra-based Swissie.  — Cécile in Sydney
"I was getting bad headaches about every month for decades The headaches were severe enough to require a lot of Panadol, which I didn’t like taking. After Anita carried out a thorough assessment of my health, she advised a simple change in eating patterns and a herbal supplement. I have not had a headache for five months now and my overall health and energy levels have never been better." — John
I would just like to share my experiences with Missing Link. I found the service impeccable. Not only was Anita warm and friendly but her professional knowledge is amazing. Through a few relevant questions and the biofeedback machine, useful details about my health were discovered that otherwise may have gone untreated or unnoticed for years and years. Anita is thorough and the results were fast, accurate and explained in a way that was meaningful and personal. - Michael
Great to catch up again yesterday, E. and I are really enjoying our new "Wellness Journey" together, so thank you so much for all of your help and guidance so far. Pleased to say Coffee has not passed my lips since our first meeting, and also my weight has reduced considerably, which is all good news. — I.K. from Canberra
