Zanjibeel - Zanjabil - Zinger - Zanfil - Adrak

Ibn Qayyim in "Medicine of the Prophet" said, "Ginger is hot in the second degree and wet in the first degree. It heats the body, helps the ingestion process, softens the stomach mildly, helps open the clogs of the liver that are caused by coldness and wetness and helps against the wetness that causes sight impairment, when it is eaten or used as kohl. [It strengthens sexual power and decomposes the thick gases accumulating in the intestines and the stomach.  [It] is good for the cold temperament of the liver and the stomach. When one takes some ginger along with two measures of sugar and some hot water, it will work as a laxative and will rid the body of harmful excrements. [It] is an effective ingredient in the ointments that dissolve the phlegm.
