Ginger for Motion Sickness (Switzerland, Italy)
Do you get seasick? Try ginger. In men and women on a two-day cruise, a 100 mg dose of the powdered herb, 30 minutes before travel and then every four hours, proved as effective as Dramamine (dimenhydrinate) in relieving queasiness. Ginger was the preferred remedy: It made people far less drowsy than Dramamine. (Healthnotes, Summer 1999)
