Ginger is very calming and helps us feel settled. It “gingerly” helps us unwind physically, emotionally and mentally. When you are going a mile a minute and need some release and calmness brought in, ginger is exactly what you need to go for
Ginger helps with adrenal fatigue, acid reflux, sleep apnea, spastic bladder, insomnia, digestive issues and gastritis. It can also help with muscle pain and inflammation in the body. It's a great tonic for the nerves and organs in the body.
And get this-- ginger has over 60 trace minerals, 30 amino acids (which we know builds protein in our bodies) and over 500 enzymes. WOW.
So, not only does ginger help relieve stress but it's helps our bodies resist stress.
Try my favorite ginger tea (linked below)! And follow these steps to create your own "Gin ger Tonic"...
- Peel and cut fresh ginger (about a handful)
- Place in blender. Juice 3 lemons
- Add 1 liter of water
- Add ⅓ c maple syrup
- Strain contents of blender into a pitcher
- Serve over ice and garnish with fresh lemon
Cheers- to beginning the fresh start of relaxing for summer adventures and our bodies renewal.
