Herbal Remedies

There is some evidence to suggest that Ginger has a beneficial effect on motion sickness. It appears to be related to its action on the gastrointestinal tract rather than the central nervous system. Some studies say it is effective, others disagree. The usual recommended dosage is about a gram. Some report that the dosage is consistent with easy administration via a biscuit or cookie.

Side effects of ginger are rare when used as recommended. However, some people may be sensitive to the taste or experience heartburn. Persons with a history of gallstones should consult a doctor before using ginger. Short-term use of ginger for nausea and vomiting of pregnancy appears to pose no safety problems; however, long-term use during pregnancy is not recommended.
