Natural Remedies for Motion Sickness
Jul 02, 2009 10:43PM
Drinking ginger tea, eating crystallized ginger or taking a ginger supplement have all been shown to alleviate a tendency toward motion sickness. Ingesting peppermint and black horehound in tincture form or as tea are also worth a try. Some studies suggest that acupuncture and relaxation training may help. Before traveling, avoid spicy, greasy or fatty meals; don’t drink alcohol or smoke. Do drink plenty of water to avoid becoming dehydrated and pack dry crackers in a handy carry-on as a light snack.
As always, ask health care providers about the best ways to incorporate these herbs, supplements or other therapies into any existing overall treatment plan.
