Motion Sickness, Beat It With Ginger
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.

Did You Know?
Daily sprinkling a little Cayenne powder on the toothpaste on your toothbrush can work miracles in fighting and preventing gum disease. That's right! It will also help deal with other oral ailments that plague many folks these days. After reading about this, we just had to try it. There is a warm sensation in your mouth as you brush your teeth, but it soon disappears after rinsing. As always, whenever using Cayenne powder, you should start with very small amounts to allow the body some time to build up a tolerance. The first few times we used it, we sprinkled so little of the powder on the toothpaste that we didn't feel anything. As the days progressed, we increased the amounts slightly until we felt it was warm enough. After using it for a little while, the nice feeling in your mouth is very satisfying. Be warned, however, that you do not want to overdo this one, so start small.
