Having to travel with motion sickness is a real problem for a lot of people. Taking medication every single time you are planning a trip is not the best solution. There are several very easy and natural alternatives that you might find helpful.

Ginger

According to research, ginger can significantly¬†help with motion sickness. This is a completely natural way that doesn’t involve any medication. Only a few grams of ginger, 30 minutes before traveling can ease the symptoms. It is worth the try.

Hey are those tree logs? No they are licorice roots! This herb is one of the most under appreciated, under valued, and low-key herbs out there. This powerful root is one of the best stomach lining healers available to us. Great for acid-reflux, ulcers, nervous stomach symptoms, and general tummy troubles. The best way to consume for healing properties is through DGL – deglycyrrhizinated licorice. Basically licorice without the glycyrrhizin, a compound in licorice which can cause side effects such as blood pressure issues. You chew the tablets on an empty stomach and follow with glass of water – when I had acid reflux issues, a few rounds of DGL fixed my stomach lining right up.
