Ginger! The Ancient Healer

January 14th, 2020 | 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

PRESENTED BY | Harry Funk, CH…

Ginger and more specifically its rhizome, is an ancient herb whose recorded use dates back almost 5,000 years. First noted as being used by a group called the Austronesian peoples, who resided in modern-day Taiwan, it was used traditionally as a cooking spice and digestive aid, but was also used in specific healing rituals. In time it made its way into south India where it grew in popularity in the spice trade. Today it is used globally not only as a household spice, but also for its medicinal effects. The main constituent found in ginger, Gingerol, has scientifically been proven to have significant anti-inflammatory effects on the human body, and has a wide range of clinical uses. Related to its use with musculoskeletal injury, along with being warming and relaxing topically, ginger is extremely rich in antioxidants that aid the body in processing dangerous free radicals, substances that can encourage inflammation, as well as prolong the healing process. Learn more about ginger, and other healing herbs at Natural Repair of the Human Body, a 2-hour class with clinician Harry Funk on January 14th, 6 – 8 pm, hosted by the Colorado School of Clinical Herbalism, 424 E Simpson in Lafayette, CO.
