Some travelers suffer from motion sickness. If you know you are prone to motion sickness, begin a ginger treatment a couple of days before your trip and continue to use ginger throughout your travels, if you want to take this traditional route. Otherwise, there are a lot of motion sickness meds that are available over the counter today.
When I was a kid, our mother used to make us ginger juice. We also use it to relieve sore throat. Another use of ginger is that whether you take it in tea form, powdered, or as capsules, ginger alleviates digestive distress. As an added benefit, the anti-inflammatory properties of ginger can help inhibit the onset of migraine headaches.
