How to use ginger?
Use five pieces of ginger in a liter of water and bring the mixture to a boil. Wait for 10 minutes and then turn off the heat. Cover the container and let it steep for another five minutes. Then strain the liquid and set it aside for later use. This is because the best way to enjoy the benefits of this root is to use the tea at the time of bathing.
To do this, pour the tea into a bathtub with hot water and perform neck dips in the liquid. Keep it that way for 20 minutes. However, if there is no way to perform these baths, the treatment can be done using warm compresses. So, moisten a cloth in the tea and then apply it to the affected area, let the plaster act for 10 minutes and repeat the process throughout the day to speed up the recovery of the injured area.
