GINGER
Ginger is one of the most valuable spices in Chinese medicine, among others. Few people know that it can help prevent or cure diseases.  In Asia ginger is used in dishes on a daily basis. The ginger root is peeled and then grated. You can also buy pickled or marinated ginger flakes.

Herbs and spices
Herbs are not only flavour enhancers. For instance, herbs contain 10 times more minerals than fruit, vegetables and cereals. Especially wild herbs growing in full ground. Herbs also contain micronutrients which do not appear (or less) in other food.  Therefore it is important to try and use herbs as much and as variedly as possible.
Cinnamon, star anise, clove and cardamon provide vitality (chi) in the Indian ayurveda.
