How to Use Ginger to Fight Nausea

Save

Nausea is a common problem. Gingerroot, a perennial plant that grows under ground, can quell nausea and improve digestive health. Here are some ways to add ginger to your diet.

Things You'll Need

  • Fresh gingerroot
  • Paring knife
  • Gnaw on a piece of fresh ginger. After you peel the skin with a paring knife, this is the quickest way to get the most amount of ginger into your system.

  • Dice, mince or grind the fresh ginger into a powder, and add it to your food. The most common foods to add ginger to are sauces and stir-fries. Ginger has a distinct flavor. It will be more subtle if added early and stronger if added at the end of cooking.

  • Purchase crystallized ginger or ginger candies. You can suck these like lozenges to produce saliva. The added saliva aids in digestion and nausea reduction.

  • Drink beverages that contain ginger. The most common is ginger-ale. An equally satisfying drink is ginger tea. Simmer a few small slices of fresh gingerroot in water for about 30 minutes. Remove the gingerroot, and add a touch of honey to sweeten.

  • Purchase foods containing ginger, like gingersnaps and gingerbread. Eat these foods in moderation, as they also contain extra carbs, fat and sugar.

Tips & Warnings

  • Fresh gingerroot that has been peeled should be stored in the refrigerator in a sealable container.
