Stomach problems that ginger cures-

Improves Digestion

Have you ever tried a weird meal at a nice restaurant? You've been battling a stomachache since the morning. No issue. Ginger can be incredibly beneficial for digestive health and helps calm an upset stomach. According to the book "Healing Foods," ginger "protects and cures the gut, speeds up food transit through the GI tract, and lowers wind, bloating, and cramps." Additionally, it arouses the taste buds and stimulates the digestive system.

Remedy- Make yourself a warm cup of delightful ginger tea by boiling some ginger or by using fresh ginger powder.


"Ginger is an excellent digestive tonic, which promotes stomach motility," says Dr. Ashutosh Gautam, Clinical Operations and Coordination Manager at Baidyanath. Therefore, it reduces acidity, vomiting, and constipation while also defending the gastric lining from acidity. The volatile oils in ginger are useful for treating gastrointestinal discomfort. Additionally, according to experts, ginger may lessen the possibility of stomach acid entering the oesophagus.

Remedy- Add a tablespoon of honey, two tablespoons of lemon juice, and a tablespoon of ginger. Pour warm water into a glass and combine them all. This tonic's anti-inflammatory properties could help lessen acidity's symptoms and ease the pain they cause.

Loss of appetite

Millions of people experience loss of appetite on a regular basis all around the world. A persistent illness or psychological stress might frequently make you unable to eat. This occurs owing to quenched agni, according to Ayurveda (digestive fire). Ginger is one of the best herbs for igniting agni.

Remedy- Dr Ashutosh Gautam suggests eating some ginger with some rock salt, lemon, and lemon juice.

For gas and flatulence

According to Dr Vasant Lad's book, "Complete Book of Home Remedies," this miraculous herb can effectively treat gas and flatulence issues. Our system also creates waste gas during digestion. The issue of gas develops when there is an excessive amount of stomach and/or intestinal gas in the body.

Remedy- Grate some fresh ginger root until you get around one teaspoon of pulp, then mix in one teaspoon of lime juice, advises Dr Vasant Lad. Take this concoction right after eating.


Bloating is a common stomach expansion, especially after eating. Overeating, gas, intolerance to a particular food or dairy product, constipation, a change in environment, etc. are all typical reasons for bloating

Remedy- Ginger is wonderful for improving nutrient absorption and assimilation since it encourages the production of digestive secretions including bile, saliva, and several other substances that help digestion. One of the main reasons for bloating is indigestion. Food that is not digested creates poisons that can seriously harm one's health. A teaspoon of ginger juice first thing in the morning reduces bloating, soothes the digestive tract, and controls excessive blood sugar.
