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.

Thank you! Thank you! I placed my order on Wednesday and it was here Saturday. I had been out of my favorite tea, Rise and Shine, for a little while and really missed it. I just love this tea. I have yet to kick the coffee habit, but after a cup or two of coffee in the morning I make a pot of Rise and Shine right in my coffee pot. I drink it through out the day and make another smaller pot in the evening, using the same tea leaves for my husband and I to enjoy after dinner. I even make an altered version of the tea for my children. I leave out the Ginkgo and Bilberry and add Cinnamon and sweeten with raw honey. They call it cinnamon tea. I call it Rise and Shine for kids. Even my two year old asks for tea in her sippy cup. And whenever they've been exposed to an illness, I just add a spoonful of Echinacea to the pot. In warmer weather I make the pot the same but allow it to cool to make iced tea. Thank you for sharing this wonderful tea.

Did You Know?

Split ends and frail hair can be drastically reduced by simply consuming Horsetail cut and/or powder. Also, weak and thin fingernails can be stronger and thicker after just a few weeks. The nutritional structure of Horsetail is well known as one of the best cures for such annoyances. Just add a bit of the cut herb to any tea combination. In a tincture, it would even be more effective. The powder can also be encapsulated, if you prefer. Continue usage even after you see improvements to make them more permanent.

Kelp would be our second choice as a nutritional powerhouse that can make a noticeable difference. Consuming both would be the best way to tackle it.
