GENERAL DESCRIPTION: Ginger grows in India, China, Mexico, and several other countries. The medical part of the plant is the underground stem, which is called the rhizome. Zesty flavor notwithstanding, ginger is often taken for its calming effects on a churning stomach. It is also taken to treat morning sickness, seasickness, and motion sickness.
