Ginger and Thyme not only sound like harmonious poetic
metaphors that could be used in the lyrics of a song, they
also help to create harmony from within. that’s because this
pair has been proven to alleviate harboured negative
physical and emotional effects on the body caused by anxiety
and stress. Look at them as natural tranquilizers that
soothe and calm the nerves – definitely a better alternative
to synthetic tranquilizers, which can be addictive and
impair sensory and motor functions. In a control group
study, with 49 volunteers where one third of the group was
given thyme, another third was given ginger and the final
third a placebo, there was a notable improvement of
stress-related symptoms in the ginger and thyme groups but
with ginger having longer-lasting and significantly greater
To understand how ginger works to alleviate stress, an
explanation of some basic human biology is necessary. There
are receptors in the brain that create personal anxiety when
activated by thromboxane, a derivative of prostaglandins –
hormone-like fatty acids found throughout the body that
directly affect blood pressure and metabolism. What ginger
does is act as a thromboxane antagonist. That is, it binds
to the brain receptors to block them from thromboxane so
that they can not be activated. The result is a calming
effect which decreases stress levels.
But this isn’t all
that ginger does. It acts as an adrenal inhibitor and
decreases craving, thereby also playing a therapeutic role
in the treatment of drug addiction and weight loss. This is
because the tension associated with dieting or withdrawal
symptoms is alleviated, making it easier for individuals to
meet their goals, whether it’s losing 10 pounds, quitting
smoking or reducing alcohol consumption. In addiction to a
daily health regime one follows to achieve whatever goals
have been set, it is important to help the body minimize any
added stress caused by breaking a habit or losing weight.
This is where ginger and thyme come into play.

plants surfaced when the cultures of our world started to
share trade and teach their herbal medicines to each other.
One such plant was Nigella Sativa commonly known as black
seed. This mild aromatic herb is indigenous to the Middle
East where it has been used as a traditional remedy for over
2000 years. It was used so extensively that it became known
as the seed of blessing “Habbatul Barakah”.
In the 13th century, the Arabic physician Ibn Kaym claimed
black seed could be used for over 50 ailments such as
Bronchial Asthma, Bronchitis and other diseases of the
respiratory tract. Also, inflammation reduction, Arthritis
relief, correction of digestive disorders, constipation
relief, fighting parasitic infestations, detoxification and

At the 71st annual meeting of the federation of American
societies for experimental biology, a report was issued
supporting some of the medicinal claims of Black seed. Some
medicinal response may be attributed to the increase of
immune enhancing T cells. This may support the black seed’s
role in balancing and strengthening the immune system.
One of the active ingredients found in black seed is called
Nigellone. This ingredient has shown the ability to produce
an anti-histamine response in the body. Studies have shown
the benefits of this anti-histamine response in children and
adults with bronchial asthma. Unlike most bronchial asthma
medicine, Nigellone produced no harmful side effects. A
study conducted by the Amala cancer research center in Amala
Nagar in India showed evidence that Black seed is a potent
antitumor agent. This study also showed that a long chain
fatty acid found in Black seed may be the active component.
THE CHEMICAL COMPOSITION
Black seed contains many active compounds as well as 15
amino acid proteins, carbohydrates, alkaloids, Saponins,
crude fibre, calcium, iron, sodium and potassium. Black seed
also contains 84% fatty acids including linoleic, linolenic
and oleic forms plus very special volatile oils. These
volatile oils contain important compounds that are
antibacterial and antifungal. The antibacterial properties
help inhibit the growth of several species of bacteria as
well as Candida. It is also suggested that this plant can be
helpful in preventing dental plaque.
Black seed can also be
combined with other substances to increase certain medicinal
responses. Black seed contains 23 different plant sterols.
These sterols can fit onto the hormone receptors in the
human body. This ability to fit onto the receptor sites may
be useful in relieving prostate inflammation and unpleasant
