How to prevent motion sickness/ Sea sickness – naturally

This does work as I have done it countless times before going out to sea and we have been in some really rough seas with big swells. I found this a while back and thought I will share this with you guys as I know how crappy it feels when you excited to dive but get out their and you stomach is not good!!

Did you know that half a teaspoon of ground ginger is more effective than chemical medication in suppressing motion or sea sickness? And unlike most medication, it will not make you drowsy.
Ginger has been used in the Orient for centuries to prevent sea sickness. Researchers asked subjects who were especially susceptible to motion sickness to sit in a reclining chair that spun around at high speed. All the subjects who ingested a well known medication or
who took a placebo experienced violent nausea and/or vomiting. On the other hand, six of the twelve subjects who took ginger twenty minutes before the test experienced no discomfort. They
consumed only 840 milligrams of ground ginger, which is the equivalent of half a teaspoon.

Hope this works for you!! and a funny thing to help you clean up your sinuses is eating a half onion!! it drys up the sinus very quickly!!! i have tried this too lol and its does work hahaha but not the best taste! but when you desprate you will try anything!! Exclamation
