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.

I purchased quite a few herbal books recommended by BHS before heading over here and many of them have been very helpful. Many of the Filipinos are fond of using herbs up here on the mountains and even grow some in their gardens. I lent a friend three herbal books- Practical Herbalism, Growing 101 Herbs That Heal and The How-To Herb Book. She was so happy to see pictures of the herbs she has in her own garden and that she can finally label each one and learn of its advantage and hopefully put it to proper use. Mountains of thanks to BHS! In Christ, Grace


Did You Know?

The daily consumption of Spirulina can improve and restore your energy levels like few other food sources can. This is partly due to its high content of riboflavin. Riboflavin helps release energy from carbohydrates, proteins and fats. So, the more riboflavin you consume, the more energy you'll get out of the foods you eat. Spirulina has more riboflavin than any other food source, making it perfect for those desiring an energy boost without any side effects.
