Caraway seeds are believed to be warm and slightly strong-tasting. In Chinese Medicine, people think these seeds are good for the stomach and help move your energy in the right way. They are also said to have an impact on your kidneys and stomach.
How to Prepare Caraway Seeds:
- For vomiting or hiccups: Boil 10g caraway seed with 5g cinnamon and 5g dried ginger. Drink this like a soup.
- For cough: Boil 10g fennel seed in 3 cups water on low heat until just 1 cup is left. Drink a cup twice a day.
Some tests on rats show caraway might help with asthma.
Caraway's effects are thought to be pretty close to those of fennel.
As always, talk to a healthcare expert for advice that's right for you.
