1. Ginger

Ginger root is the number one natural remedy for alleviating a nauseous sensation. It can be taken as a preventive measure if you tend to suffer from motion sickness and you plan to travel by car or boat. For recurring episodes of morning sickness due to pregnancy, you can keep a bottle of homemade ginger syrup in the fridge as a quick fix. Powdered ginger can be taken in capsule form, but it may cause a burning sensation on an empty stomach. The pickled ginger sold in Asian markets is good to have on hand for a snack, as is crystallized ginger, which has the added advantage of containing sugar. If you prefer to sip a hot tea, you can add hot water to this recipe:
Ginger syrup:
• Chop and peel a large ginger root
• Simmer in 1 cup of boiling water for 5 minutes
• Steep for 15 minutes
• Strain the liquid into a bowl
• Add 1/4 cup of honey
