You know that uneasy feeling you get when your stomach churns up and you feel foggy in a boat or a ship, or on a long drive? It’s motion sickness, quite a common condition. Several remedies have been suggested to beat this uncomfortable feeling, but nothing is as effective as ginger. Here’s how to consume it:
- Have it in its raw state (ginger root) by simply peeling, chopping, and chewing on a small slice.
- Scout your supermarket aisle for its powdered form. Mix 1 tsp ginger powder in 1 cup of plain water or apple juice. Sip on this refreshing drink whenever you feel sick or uncomfortable on your travels.
- If you prefer something hot and comforting, try ginger tea. Keep a ginger tea bag handy.
- Fresh ginger cookies as well as ginger candy could also provide relief.
If you’re prone to motion sickness, you can start consuming ginger a couple of hours before your trip as a preventive measure. Continue taking it at regular intervals, and you’re sure to have a pleasant journey.
