Uses: Ginger is truly a wonder drug, having so many healing properties. It was called the univer- sal medicine. Taken with rock salt it reduces Váyu; with rock candy it reduces Pitta; with honey it re- duces Kapha. Fresh: Mixed juice with water and cane sugar, boiled to a syrup—add saffron and powders of car- damom, nutmeg, and clove and preserve well. This ginger-jam, called Allaepauk, is useful indigestion, flatulence, colic, vomiting, spasms, stomach and bowel pains with fever, colds, cough, asthma, and increasing Pachaka Agni (responsible for diges- tion). For indigestion, mix equal parts juice with lemon juice and rock salt (found in Indian grocer- ies), and take just before meals. Taking the juice with rock salt, before meals, cleanses the throat and tongue, and increases the appetite. For bile and delirium due to biliousness, take ginger juice with cow’s milk (2:7 ratio), boil to half volume and add rock-candy powder, and take before bed. Or mix juice with mango juice, cane sugar, and cow ghee; mix and melt to half the quantity and take morn- ings and evenings. For sore throats, hoarseness, and laryngitis, sometimes chewing a piece of fresh ginger pro- duces saliva and soothes these conditions. Juice rubbed on navel relieves diarrhea. Ginger and on- 71 The Áyurveda Encyclopedia ion juice relieve nausea, vomiting, and retching. Juice with rock candy (twice daily) remedies dia- betes (mellitus and insipidus), For nervous head- ache, mix ginger juice with milk, let dry, and use as snuff. Dry: With black and long peppers (t^ikatu) it is a carminative. Added to purgatives, it prevents nau- sea and the gripe. For indigestion and low appe- tite, mix with ghee or hot water. With painful bow- els or stomach make an infusion of dry ginger, and mix with 1-2 tbs. castor oil. Alternatively, mix some asafoetida with ginger powder. For chronic rheu- matic pain (Váyu or Kapha), colds, excess mucus, take ginger powder tea before bed, and cover up with blankets to promote sweating. In cases of headaches, make a paste of ginger and aloe gel or water, and apply to the head and take a nap or be- fore evening sleep. The same paste maybe applied to the face for tooth or face aches. For headaches caused by nerves, mix a paste of ginger, cinna- mon, castor root, and cloves (equal parts); and ap- ply to the head. For fainting, apply a thin paste of ginger and water to the eyelids, or place a mix of suòóh, black pepper and pippalí under the nostrils in small pinches. This will also help stupor, delirium and senselessness caused by brain fever. Other uses: Arthritis, belching, heart disease, laryngitis (use as a tea and an external paste on throat), vomiting, constipation, strengthens memory, removes obstructions in the vessels, in- continence, flatulence, colic, spasms, fever, eye diseases, and asthma. Juice is better for colds, cough, vomiting, deranged Váyu, and as a dia- phoretic. Dry ginger is better for increasing agni and reducing Kapha.
