Can we cure coronavirus? Ginger can cure corona virus since ginger interferes with the RNA and corona virus is an RNA virus. Wuhan’s Corona virus can be cured by ginger if we look into scientific research done in the past. First it must be fresh ginger in order to fight coronavirus!!! Coronaviruses are a family of viruses that cause respiratory problems. Apart from the 2019-nCoV, other known coronaviruses that affect humans are the deadly Middle East Respiratory Syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV) and the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS).
So far research shows that:
Ginger inhibits Norwalk virus surrogate
Ginger inhibits human respiratory syncytial virus
Ginger fights influenza A
Ginger versus the common cold
Ginger versus herpes
Ginger fights retroviral nausea and vomiting
Ginger can cure corona virus since ginger interferes with the RNA and corona virus is an RNA virus
How should you consume medicinal ginger
Fresh ginger can be consumed with foods, herbal tea, or blended into a smoothie. If adding to an herbal tea it should be put into the cup last – right before drinking if possible. Ginger can also be squeezed into fresh ginger juice, which may then be blended with water or fruit juice. Ayurvedic traditionalists have often suggested simply chewing fresh ginger root raw when sick.
Mu tea is one of the most famous and easily made cold and flu remedies. Mu tea is made by brewing up some ginger tea (steep ginger root in water after being brought to a boil). Then add some raw honey and fresh-squeezed lemon to the herba cuppa.
The research above indicates that using ginger essential oils is also a good strategy for fighting viral infections. A few drops of ginger essential oil can be used topically and internally. A very small test dose should precede consumption.
