Just Ginger For Motion Sickness

Forget the anti-nausea tablets! Chew a small piece of ginger or drink ginger beer / ale (there are also ginger capsules available) before setting out on a journey. Ginger will settle your tummy in no time, and it's safe for small children and during pregnancy, too!

Bon voyage!

    Too many side-effects on Nexium... Ginger is safe.

    Great advice. I always have fresh ginger on hand for when my tummy is upset from reflux. It is great as a tea as well.

    I used to nibble on ginger biscuits during my pregnancy to prevent nausea - both morning sickness and travel sickness. It really helped. :-)

    Discovering ginger's ability to ease motion sickness allowed me to enjoy snorkeling. Ginger ale and water are my beverages of choice when flying.

    Ginger can work but not as well as Nexium
