GINGER, which is on the spice shelf of most homes, not only neutralizes the toxicity of meat when cooked with it, but is one of herbology's greatest 'carrier herbs.' Meaning that one of its dominant properties is its ability to 'carry' and act as a 'catalyst' to other herbs' medicinal values. Its warm energy and its ability to carry things through the body makes it extremely efficacious in "dispersing" or "carrying away" fevers - internally in tea as well as externally as a Ginger foot bath, which aids in rapid decreasing of high fevers. Ginger (and cinnamon) tea is very warming in cold weather, as it is of great aid in warming the extremities of people whose hands and feet get cold faster than most; also by the application of ginger or cayenne powder in socks and gloves is very warming.
