I have heard Ginger Root prevents sea sickness. Has anyone ever tried this? Do these pills work?
Does anyone have a suggestion for ginger without sugar. Many people have health conditions that do not permit sugar but would prefer the natural ginger product. Does the pickled ginger used with Sushi work too? Thanks for any assistance.I use 500 mg. caps of pure ginger that I get from the health food store. No sugar. I take 1 or 2 caps with food 3 x per day beginning with first meal after I board the ship. I can usually taper off after a couple days as I get used to the motion.
For seasickness, my doctor told me about this remedy. He was a Navy corpman before medical school. He says it is all in your head anyway. TAPE AN ASPIRIN IN YOUR BELLY BUTTON!Doesn't sound like a very intellegent doctor. The innner ear can be affected by the motion. what happens is your body feels the motion but your eyes don't see it- this confuses your senses and can cause nausea.
