Usage : Zedoary is a plant. The underground stem (rhizome) is used
to make medicine.
Traditional methods for preparing zedoary involve washing it with lots of water
to remove most of the protein and water-soluble nutrients. The rinsing is
also supposed to remove a poison that is yet to be identified.
Zedoary is used for colic, spasms, loss of
appetite, and indigestion. Some people
also use it for anxiety, stress, fatigue, and pain and swelling (inflammation).
