Ginger for Motion Sickness

1279Motion sickness occurs when what you are seeing or hearing does not match up with the movement felt by your inner ear. Ginger is one of the best natural remedies for motion sickness. Ginger is a natural root that has been used in Chinese medicine for more than 2,000 years to help treat nausea, stomach upset, and to help ease in digestion.*

When you are on the go, fresh ginger ale and ginger hard candy can help with motion sickness. At home, you can make ginger tea by seeping fresh shavings into hot water for 30 seconds. You can also finely dice a teaspoon of fresh ginger and simply eat it!

Get Some Ginger

gingerGinger’s potent anti-inflammatory abilities can help control diabetes, promote heart health, aid in weight management, and provide pain relief. Ginger also works wonders on your gastrointestinal tract and can ease nausea, motion sickness, and morning sickness. A new study also shows that when paired with isoproterenol (a form of asthma medication), ginger can also help open airways.*

You can easily incorporate ginger into your next meal by peeling the root and thinly slicing it. Because of its distinct flavor, many people also like to boil ginger and drink it separately as a hot, soothing tea.
