Here is a Biblical prescription for life:  “They will bear fruit every month, because their water flows from the sanctuary. Their fruit will be for food, and their leaves for medicine.” Ezekiel 47:12.

Often naturally occurring medicines work better and more gently than man-made concoctions. Ginger has long been accepted as a natural treatment for nausea. Several modern studies have confirmed that ginger can even work better than modern nausea medicines.

The ginger we’re talking about comes from the roots of tropical plants that grow two to four feet high. It was once used to calm bees so that honey could be harvested without incident.

A 1988 study gave either ginger capsules or placebos to Dutch naval cadets. The study concluded that ginger proved to be “significantly beneficial” in reducing the incidence of seasickness. Two studies in the 1990’s showed that ginger reduced nausea and vomiting associated with chemotherapy and some types of surgery.

I have found ginger has helped with my digestive problems. I have found a source of ginger chews, and also ginger tea! Maybe ginger is your Biblical prescription for a better life.

Researchers warn that you should check with your doctor before trying ginger, since it does interact with some medications.

When God placed helpful natural medicines into His perfect creation, He was providing healing for us before we even needed it. This care shows that we have a loving Creator. His greatest gift to us is the spiritual healing of the forgiveness of sins that comes through His Son, Jesus Christ.
