Motion Sickness, Beat It With Ginger

by Annette

February 2010

I started using ginger capsules for motion sickness on the advice of my mother. Dramamine, the OTC drug of choice for this problem, made me so sleepy and loopy-feeling that I was no good for about a day after taking it. That is not a problem with ginger. I take two caps about 30 minutes before getting on an airplane (or going on a car trip when curvy roads are involved), and usually another 2 to 4 sometime during the trip. (Ginger is best taken with food unless you don’t mind a little hot feeling in your stomach.) This has been a wonderful remedy for me because the Dramamine used to cost me a whole day of visiting time with my daughter’s family.

God has put so many wonderful properties in his healing herbs. Thanks to all of you at the Bulk Herb Store site for sharing what you know and what works for you.

Did You Know?

After childbirth, a mama's body is gearing up for breastfeeding. It also begins a cleansing process as chemicals, hormones, and nutrients are all adjusting to proper levels as before the pregnancy. The liver, kidneys, colon, etc. are all very involved in this cleansing. Herbs that aid in this process are known as liver cleansers and as blood purifiers. Amazingly enough, many of the liver cleansers and blood purifiers also promote milk production. Some of these herbs are: Fennel, Fenugreek, Blessed Thistle, and Dandelion. Most of us may not see the relation between breastfeeding and cleansing. However, God provided the herbs that aid the new mother to get both jobs done. The Mama's Milk Tea recipe was contributed by one of our readers, and includes herbs for after birth.
