The Power Of Ginger To Eliminate Cold And Dampness In The Body

without comments

Traditional Chinese Medicine in Cleveland considers Candidiasis as a symptom of underlying dampness. According to Ayurvedic therapy, things that have a sweet taste can cause dampness. It believes that dampness contributes to coldness, because when your shirt gets wet on a cold day, you’re highly likely to freeze. If sweetness promotes dampness, sugar allows yeast to thrive, and since yeast is a damp condition, then it is only a good idea to not only avoid sweetness/dampness but directly work to dry out that cold.

People who are cold are likely to be also cold emotionally and physically. In Chinese Medicine, there’s such a condition called Coldness. According to an article in the Herbs for Health weekly magazine, some doctors advise people with an underlying cold condition to avoid fruit that causes cold and recommend ginger to bring warmth in the body.

Several studies indicate that ginger can help remove dampness in the body. In the Herbs for Health article, a recipe to combat dampness is included and is as follow: boil six slices of Panax or red ginseng in a covered pot and six teaspoonfuls of root of dried ginger in two quarts of water for fifteen minutes. Allow the brew to boil for another fifteen minutes. Before each meal drink one cup of the brew (perhaps two to three cups each day).

To help with intestinal conditions, concoct a powerful ginger tea by boiling a couple of teaspoonful of root of dried ginger in two cups of water for fifteen minutes. Boil for another fifteen minutes and allow the tea to cool off a bit. Immerse a washcloth in the warm tea and apply it on the ailing stomach area.
