This paper examines how the ancient herb ginseng, which is native to China and Korea, has been used as an alternative medicine throughout the world for more than 5,000 years. It discusses how the five different types of ginseng, which are able to live for over three hundred years, have medicinal properties that are believed to have rich healing attributes.

From the Paper:

"However, although over the past thirty years there has been some scientific study into the health benefits of ginseng, professionals have recognized the need for more extensive research and testing. The study that has been conducted, which has been limited, has revealed inconclusive testing in some areas. Nevertheless, some studies have shown an indication of possible "beneficial effects on immune function" (National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine, Online Article, 2007), and there have been other positive results. More recent research is exploring the possibility of using ginseng in treating Alzheimer's disease, chronic lung infection, and impaired glucose tolerance."
