Ginger root is a natural medicine that has been used for hundreds of years to reduce nausea and motion sickness. Studies have shown that ginger root may be as effective as prescription anti-nausea medicines with fewer side effects. Ginger can speed stomach emptying and increase digestive responsiveness which can further reduce nausea. Research shows ginger to be a safe therapy, even for pregnant women and those undergoing chemotherapy, when consumed in doses below 1500mg per day. As with any other medication or supplement, check with your doctor or pharmacist before starting any new therapy.
