The researchers believe that "the aromatic and carminative [gas-expelling] properties of ginger, and its possible absorbent properties suggest that ginger ameliorates the effects of motion sickness in the gastrointestinal tract itself." A few capsules a day should do the trick. Chewing on ginger sticks or drinking ginger tea has been recommended by herbalists. Also, honey, nutmeg and mace are potentially helpful.

And other ingredients in kimchi—chile peppers and ginger, for example—have health benefits of their own. Why Fermented Foods Are Almost Always Good for You Then there's fermentation. Kimchi is always fermented, which should be our next clue to the fact that this is going to be a healthy food. Almost all naturally fermented foods are health promoting. The healthy bacteria lactobacilli are heavily involved in the fermentation process, and kimchi is a potent source of these healthy "probiotics.

USE HERBS AND SPICES OFTEN Garlic, anise and other herbs, as well as ginger and other spices used in cooking, contain high levels of anticancer phytochemicals. To increase flavor, add herbs and spices to your foods instead of salt, sugar or fat. What most people don't know: Cutting or smashing fresh garlic 10 minutes before cooking preserves the high levels of its anticancer compounds. SOY: A LITTLE GOES A LONG WAY Soybeans contain many anticarcinogenic compounds, including the phytoestrogen genistein.

Then, you have turmeric, dandelion and ginger, which, we could do a whole article about those. Your calcium and magnesium are from the Kreb's cycle bionutrients. I think some readers know what the Kreb's cycle is, but what specifically is meant by Kreb's cycle bionutrients? Dr. Liers: In the human body, the Kreb's cycle is the aerobic energy cycle. People normally draw it as a little circle. From a biochemical point of view, you feed it into this biochemical cycle, which is called the Kreb's cycle. Hans Krebs won a Nobel Prize for its discovery.

The latest U.S. health safety distraction ploy: Blame China!

Mike Adams, the Health Ranger
See article keywords and concepts
Lately, we've seen China blamed for everything from toxic toothpaste, deadly dog food, contaminated ginger and now lead-based paints in Mattel toys. Of course, all the accusations are true. China's food and herbal products are so routinely contaminated with pesticides and heavy metals that high-quality supplement formulators in the United States refuse to buy products from China anymore. But the really clever part in all this is that blaming China prevents people from paying attention to the dangerous ingredients openly allowed in the U.S. food supply by the FDA.

Add herbs and spices with anti-inflammatory, antioxidant punch such as curry powder, turmeric, rosemary, ginger, and garlic to your food as often as possible. • Sip green tea once or twice a day. Try one of the many available varieties of green tea, which has strong antioxidant properties. A glass of red wine once a day is also heart healthy and full of antioxidants, as long as it doesn't interact with your medicines. • Eat. . . chocolate? Dark chocolate has, in recent years, been found to be an excellent source of antioxidants—and may even directly lower blood pressure!
Cinnamon, cilantro, parsley, garlic, oregano, turmeric (cumin), ginger, and rosemary are just a few of the herbal superstars of the kitchen that have known healing effects. The Salt Issue Limit your intake of normal table salt. It is processed sodium chloride and is as bad for you as any other processed food. On the other hand, sea salt in its natural form is essential for good cellular function. It contains trace minerals, including iodine—the mineral usually added to table salt, important for the health of the thyroid gland—in a concentration that is more usable by the body.

If you take Power Immune on a regular basis, you'll also notice an improvement in triglycerides and cholesterol levels (thanks to the garlic and ginger ingredients), meaning you might also be able to transition off your statin drugs. In fact, there are a number of pharmaceuticals made obsolete by the ingredients found in Power Immune. But that's not the purpose of this product. It's not meant as an all-around herbal supplement. It has one purpose: To save you from colds, flus and infectious disease.

In fact, licorice was among six foods and herbs listed as having the highest anticancer activity according to the 1997 report "Phytochemicals: Guardians of Our Health" by the Journal of the American Dietetic Assocation (the others were garlic, soybeans, cabbage, ginger, and the umbelliferous vegetables). Licorice has also been known to soothe joints and support normal blood sugar. The licorice root extract produces mild estrogenic effects, and it has proven useful in supporting the stress of menopause and menstruation. Licorice also has a beneficial effect on digestive processes.
One of my favorite juice recipes is celery, pear, and ginger (see page 256). If for no other reason, pears are a great food because of their high fiber content. There are two basic varieties of persimmon: Hachiya (also called Japanese persimmon) and Fuyu. Hachiya is the most widely available persimmon in the United States, but it's astringent, so remember to let it ripen. Fuyu are nonastringent, so you can eat them firm or soft. There's also Sharon fruit (also called Israeli persimmon), which is round and sweet, and like Fuyu, can be eaten anytime.
The tuber—or underground stem—resembles a gnarly potato or a piece of ginger and has a really nice taste. The baked tubers are delicious. Feeding the Good Bacteria for a Healthy Gut Whatever the genesis of its odd name, this vegetable lands on the list because of its high content offmctooligosaccharides and inulin. What are those, you ask? They're extremely healthy food for the "good" bacteria in your gut. You know how antibiotics wipe out all the bacteria in your gut garden, including the healthy kind like acidophilus?
Try adding some ginger and mint to the mix. Note: Crenshaw and casaba melons are pretty similar nutritionally to the honeydew. All are high in potassium; have a little calcium, magnesium, and vitamin C; and are mostly water, low in calories, and utterly delicious. Kiwifruit * According to my friend Dharma Singh Khalsa, M.D., the internationally acclaimed expert in integrative medicine and author of Food as Medicine, the kiwifruit is one of the most underrated healing foods.

Foods rich in zinc include fresh oysters, pumpkin seeds, ginger, pecans, Brazil nuts, oats, and eggs. Zinc can be purchased in supplement form, in both liquid concentrates and tablets. Omega-3 Fatty Acids: Dry, inflamed skin or skin that suffers from the frequent appearance of whiteheads or blackheads can benefit from supplementing with essential fatty acids (EFAs), especially omega-3s. EFAs are responsible for skin repair, moisture content, and overall flexibility, but because the body cannot produce its own EFAs, they must be obtained through the diet.

We also just had reports that ginger actually will knock out the avian flu virus. So one of the things that I formulate is sort of a variation of a formula that Doc. Christopher called his Plague Formula. It's concentrated garlic extract -- 30 cloves of garlic -- and it's got tons of ginger and olive leaf extract in it. It was not designed for the avian flu; it was designed sort of like Doc. Christopher's formula for general flu and illness. Mike: Those are three of the ingredients that I've been recommending in my bird flu protection book. What's the name of that product?
