Question Ginger (Powder, Raw) GOOD or NOT ?

dear all

today i gave momo a slice of ginger and she took it well rather she forgot everything else and went for a bigger chunk which was at the top of cage.

i read couple of places where they were telling about the benefits of ginger


Ginger
is an absolute favorite taste of parrots. It is an excellent herb for the respiratory system as well as an effective cleansing agent for the digestive system. It contains Protein, Vitamins A, C and B Complex, Calcium, Phosphorus, Iron, Sodium, Potassium and Magnesium

GINGER-Called the "wonder drug", the ginger root is actually a rhizome which is similar to several foods known to be consumed in the wild by parrots. It has been used for two thousand years by the Chinese to treat nausea and upset stomach. It is no coincidence that the Japanese serve fresh ginger slices with sushi as insurance against the parasites sometimes found in raw fish. Ginger is a wonderful remedy to use with baby parrots that go through brief periods of colic or throwing up their formula. I mix their formula in ginger tea instead of water and the problem is solved immediately. You can make the tea by steeping two or three slices of fresh ginger root in the water for ten or fifteen minutes. If your parrot must travel and is prone to motion sickness, ginger to the rescue! Add fresh ginger to the food and drinking water several hours before the trip and put a few slices in the carrier. Parrots seem to have an innate sense of what they need and will munch on the ginger to "quell their queasiness" during the trip.

i would like to ask you all regarding personal experience of using ginger and what quantity is good per serving and what frequency

Ginger, Neem, Garlic and couple of other herbs i am studying from couple of days. will try to post most of it here for others benefits as well

it is considered that neem leaves tea helps to removes toxins from blood stream, which enhance immunity. daily use is not advised, every other week end its very good

Ginger is excellent for digestion. I don't see any reason not to consume ginger daily (for birds or humans).
