Inflammation has been proven time and time again to be one of the fundamental processes involved with the development and acceleration of disease. Because of this, researchers have been investigating different plants and plant compounds that are rich in antioxidants in order to ascertain their effectiveness in both curing and preventing disease.
Ginger is one of these powerful herbs. Used in ancient Chinese medicine for thousands of years, ginger has been proven to be up to 10,000 times more effective than chemo particularly when it comes to prostate cancer.
Although chemotherapy is effective in killing cancer cells, it also is affective in killing healthy cells. Because of healthy cell damage, most of the time tumors will return with a vengeance and spread throughout the body and metastasize to other organs of the body.
Besides slowing down cancer, ginger has been proven to be effective for over 100 other ailments, including diabetes, osteoarthritis and chemotherapy-induced nausea. Another good reason why you should definitely try it is the fact that it comes with virtually no side effects. Unlike chemo, ginger is a remedy.
