Ginger has many properties which can benefit fibromyalgia:
Ginger contains a phenolic compound known as gingerols which has anti-inflammatory and anti-spasmodic effects. It helps relieve and reduce overall pain in fibromyalgia patients.
Ginger carries a digestive enzyme, zingibain, which is effective in relieving gastrointestinal problems such as nausea and stomach discomfort. It can also help to reduce symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), a common coexisting condition with fibromyalgia patients.
Ginger is a natural detoxing agent. It helps to cleanse the body of harmful toxins, which can also act as pain stimuli, by expelling them through the skin during perspiration. Removing pain stimuli would help reduce fibro flares.
