This blog is part of the Fall 2021 Detox Kickoff with GLIM!
Many are familiar with the household remedy for an upset stomach: Ginger ale. Some have debunked this myth, while others stand by the spicy bubbles as the ultimate cure. Beyond its healing powers in the realms of digestion, studies of ginger have actually uncovered even more applications, such as a natural treatment for autoimmune disorders.
A number of phytochemicals found in ginger play a significant role in the reduction of inflammation- one of the hallmark characteristics of autoimmune diseases. Ginger has been shown to inhibit inflammatory pathways and manage symptoms of irritable bowel disease (IBD), Alzheimer’s, arthritis, and even cancer (Rothwell Kelly 2019). Ginger can be added to one’s diet in recipes utilizing ginger root or ground ginger, as well as taken as a supplement or tea.
