As a seasoning, it spans continents, finding its way through Thai, Indian, Chinese, and other Asian cuisines, and into western baked goods, ales, and sauces. As a supplement, it provides valuable minerals, bridging the gap between diet and medicine.
Therapeutically, it works on many conditions, operating synergistically to bring balance through various modalities. It does all this while stimulating, and protecting the liver. It also simultaneously aids in inflammatory and cancerous conditions.
The remarkable thing about ginger is that these tissues can range from an arthritic and degenerated joint, to an obstructed airway, to an organ recovering from cancer. As if that was not enough, ginger also enhances cardiovascular health. As a food with a long-history of use throughout the world, its harmful side effects are minimal, especially when compared to many pharmaceuticals.
Sula, Parinamasula and Amlapitta are clinical entities recognized by ayurveda, akin to peptic ulcer and functional dyspepsia. Many indigenous drugs have been advocated in ayurveda for treatment of dyspepsia. Our laboratory has been engaged in screening of various indigenous herbal and metallic drugs for their potential use in peptic ulcer diseases, taking lead from Ayurveda and have reported anti-ulcer and ulcerhealing properties of Tectona grandis lapacholRhamnus procumbens kaempferolRhamnus triquerta emodinWithania somnifera acylsteryl glycosideShilajit fulvic acid and carboxymethoxybiphenylDatura fastuosa withafastuosin EFluggea microcarpa and Aegle marmelos pyrano- and iso- coumarins etc.
The present article includes the detailed exploration of ulcer protective and healing effects of unripe plantain banana, tambrabhasma and Asparagus racemosus on various models of experimental gastroduodenal ulceration and patients with peptic ulcer.
Their effects on mucin secretion, mucosal cell shedding, cell proliferation, anti-oxidant activity, glycoproteins, and PG synthesis have been reported. Clinical trials of these drugs for evaluating their potential ulcer healing effects in peptic ulcer patients have been done.
Their potential ulcer protective effects both, experimental and clinical seemed to be due to their predominant effects on various mucosal defensive factors rather than on the offensive acid-pepsin secretion.
The result obtained revealed that ethanolic extract of ginger gave the widest zone of inhibition against two out of the three test organisms at the concentration of 0.
However, Escherichia coli and Salmonella typhi were more sensitive to the extract of onion bulbs compared to Bacillus subtilis which was predominantly resistant. It was also observed that the solvent of extraction and its varying concentrations affected the sensitivity of two of the test organisms to the plant materials.
The minimum inhibitory concentration MIC of ginger extracts on the test organisms ranged from 0. This investigation indicates that, though both plants had antimicrobial activities on the two gram negative test organisms but not effective on the gram positive test organism, ginger had more inhibitory effect thus confirming their use in folk medicine.
To evaluate the effects of ginger on gastric motility and emptying, abdominal symptoms, and hormones that influence motility in dyspepsia.
Eleven patients with functional dyspepsia were studied twice in a randomized double-blind manner. After an 8-h fast, the patients ingested three capsules that contained ginger total 1. Gastrointestinal sensations and appetite were scored using visual analog questionnaires, and blood was taken for measurement of plasma glucagon-like peptide-1 GLP-1motilin and ghrelin concentrations, at intervals throughout the study.
Gastric emptying was more rapid after ginger than placebo [median range half-emptying time Ginger stimulated gastric emptying and antral contractions in patients with functional dyspepsia, but had no impact on gastrointestinal symptoms or gut peptides. SK Chuau, et al. Ginger has been reported to improve upper gastrointestinal symptoms.
Little information about the effects of ginger on gastric motor function, exists, however. Our aim was to investigate the effects of ginger on gastric emptying, antral motility, proximal gastric dimensions, and postprandial symptoms.
Twenty-four healthy volunteers were studied twice in a randomized double-blind manner. After an 8 h fast, the volunteers ingested three ginger capsules total mg or placebo, followed after 1 h by ml low-nutrient soup.
Antral area, fundus area and diameter, and the frequency of antral contractions were measured using ultrasound at frequent intervals over 90 min, and the gastric half-emptying time was calculated from the change in antral area.
Gastrointestinal sensations and appetite were scored using visual analog questionnaires. Fundus dimensions did not differ, and there was no significant difference in any gastrointestinal symptoms. Ginger accelerates gastric emptying and stimulates antral contractions in healthy volunteers.
These effects could potentially be beneficial in symptomatic patient groups. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of ginger extract on delayed gastric emptying, developing ventilator-associated pneumonia, and clinical outcomes in adult respiratory distress syndrome ARDS. Thirty-two ARDS patients who were dependent on mechanical ventilation and fed via nasogastric tube were studied.
After enrollment, patients were randomized to 2 groups.The cognitive approach in psychology is a relatively modern approach to human behaviour that focuses on how we think. It assumes that our thought processes affect the way in which we behave.
Risk is the possibility of losing something of value. Values (such as physical health, social status, emotional well-being, or financial wealth) can be gained or lost when taking risk resulting from a given action or inaction, foreseen or unforeseen (planned or not planned).Risk can also be defined as the intentional interaction with uncertainty.
Narcissistic ex-husbands, unable to bear the shame of a failed marriage, often attempt to annihilate the character of their ex-wives in order to keep their own ideal self-image spotless.
Karla Homolka is a Canadian murderer convicted for the and rape-murders of two Ontario teenage girls, as well as the rape and detah of her sister Tammy. Most citations of Maslow's hierarchy of needs list only five levels. This is particularly true of management books and hand-outs. Very few sources that I have seen list the full range of seven need levels that Maslow outlines and explains in his revision .
Social psychology tends to study how people behave in real-world situations—for example, how people react to advertisements, why they commit crimes, and how we can work more efficiently in offices and factories.
Social psychology doesn't always involve experiments; it might be based on questionnaires or observations instead.
