Ginger has been thought of as a homeopathic and flavorful food for a very long time, many centuries. It is abundant in the Asian diet (no surprise seeing as they have many recorded homeopathic treatments).
Ginger contains chemicals called gingerols and schools, which increase the speed of contractions in the stomach… which is helpful if you are needing to move upsetting contents through quickly. This root, on top of tasting awesome, reduces diarrhea, nausea, and vomiting.
In order to get enough throughout your day, you might try adding some to your water (cold or hot) beverage.
You can try natural high ginger containing ginger ale (Whole Foods or Central Market and a few other chain health grocery stores should have this). You can also eat sushi, as it is served typically with rice and ginger. It tastes great, in my opinion.
