Natural Remedies: Ginger & Nausea Relief

Sorry for my delay in blog posts!  Not only have I been busy at work, but I had the misfortune of acquiring some sort of terrible stomach virus.  Fortunately, I felt well enough to speak at the WECAN event at Harvard this afternoon on the topic of “Becoming Your Own Nutrition Expert.”  

One of the attendees was curious to know about natural, nutrition based remedies.  And I had a great recommendation based on my recent stomach upset.   It is the perfect “natural” antidote to a queezy stomach.  It’s called a Ginger Steamer from Crema Cafe’ in Harvard Square. They use a ginger broth and add fresh lime juice and honey.  Not only is it delicious, but totally warm and soothing. If you are on the verge of getting sick, have a bit of an upset tummy, or just want a feel good kind of drink- I highly recommend it!

Here’s some reliable information from WebMD on ginger as an anti-nausea remedy.
