Motion Sickness Remedies
Ginger is hands down, the most effective of all motion sickness remedies. Before you head out on the road or depart on the high seas, grate 1 teaspoon of fresh ginger root and add it to 1 cup of hot water.
Add 1 tablespoon of lemon juice, 1 tablespoon of honey and let it all soak together for about 10 minutes before drinking. For maximum benefit, make sure to drink the solid pieces of ginger that are floating in the tea.
Take 1 gram of powdered ginger.
Take 2 capsules of ginger, 500 mg each every 4 hours.
Herbal Remedy For Motion Sickness With Fresh Ginger Root
As we mentioned, ginger is the best of all motion sickness remedies and therefore deserves special attention. Here are two more ways to reap the benefits of ginger:
Fresh Ginger Root #1
Take about a 2 inch section of fresh ginger root, skin the bark off of it and chop it up really good. Soak it in 2 cups of water for about 15 minutes. To make it even more effective, you can also add a pinch of camomile flowers, orange peel, fennel, and peppermint.
Fresh Ginger Root #2
Take a 1 inch section of fresh ginger root and grate it into 2 cups of water. Boil for about 10 minutes and then add 1 cup of honey and boil for another 10 minutes. Remove from heat and let it cool for about 30 minutes. Strain it.
You can keep this "syrup" in the refrigerator and when needed, mix some with an equal amount of water, give or take, to taste.
One of the simplest motion sickness remedies is to just make sure you get enough rest. The more fatigued you are, the better chance you have of experiencing motion sickness.
