Falling for Fitness blog: My unexpected saviour

Thursday, January 10, 2013

I have to say I was a bit gutted when I saw this week's FFF challenge. I don't have any ailments, and I don't entirely believe in 'alternative' medicine/remedies/whatever anyway.

Then that reheated Indian curry made me throw up. That'll teach me not to eat junk food. But anyway for the next two days, even though I wasn't physically sick again, that sicky feeling would not go away.

Enter the 'alternative remedy': ginger for sickness. I have been recommended this before (I seem to feel sick strangely often...) but I always said no because I really don't like ginger. However, after two days of feeling constantly on the edge of losing my lunch I was willing to try anything. So I grated a wee bit of ginger into my favourite mug (I thought it might help), poured on hot water and waited with a mild feeling of dread for it to cool down. It finally got there and I took my first sip.

Honestly, it was vile. But half an hour later I couldn't remember the taste and I realised that for the first time since the weekend I didn't feel sick. Turns out some of these alternatives really work.

    Some of them definitely do - especially the old one that was used long before commercial medicine. I hate ginger too, but it works. :D
