    Introduction: Ginger is a potent antiemetic, anti-inflammatory, antitumorigenic, antimicrobial, and antiviral agent. The increasing awareness in both medical community and among public has led to the use of unconventional and alternative treatment modalities by patients. The main aim of this study is to prove the efficacy of raw ginger and ginger oil on different kinds of pain. Materials and Methods: A study was carried out among 30 people with different pains such as arthritis, back pain, tennis elbow, migraine, and joint pain. 30 people were divided into two groups. Group A consists of 15 people consuming raw ginger and Group B consists of 15 people consuming drops of ginger oil. A pain scale is used to measure the pain before and after the usage of raw ginger and ginger oil for a month. Results: About 86% of the pain has been cured by the use of raw ginger within 30 days and 100% of the pain has been cured by the use of ginger oil. Conclusion: A 1-month period of therapy with doses of ginger oil and raw ginger consumed in this study showed all the effects of ginger extract. Ginger oil was found to be more effective in a shorter span of time than raw ginger.
