I need a ginger substitute

My wife is allergic to ginger. I have cooked Asian food for 40 years and can handle other substitutions due to other allergies, but ginger has me stumped. I just leave it out, but the final flavor is simply missing that punch. Can you help? Maybe there is no substitute and galangal is a ginger so that doesn't work. Thanks for the time.
