Stomach Soother

i swear by this for nausea. just mix a little honey, water, and ginger and microwave till warm.
it doesn't have to be a lot, just a few ounces works.

I know it's been a while since anybody has posted in here but I'm new to the forum so it's the first time I saw it! Anyway, I have coached many pregnant women (I'm an herbologist/massage therapist) and there are couple things I have each one of them do. These both work in most cases, but with ginger I do take some precautions... There are some studies (not proctored very well in my opinion though) that suggest that if a pregnant woman has a low platellate count that they should steer away from ginger. So, with that said, I suggest the two things for morning sickness/nausia in general. If you like the taste of ginger, great! I keep a quart jar of ginger tincture in my cupboard at all times. I will add about 2 tsp of the tincture to a glass and pour about 12oz of boiling h2o over top to get rid of the alcohol. Add about 2 tsp honey and 1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice and you're done. This tastes great and really helps soothe the stomach. For people who don't like ginger (like my wife...) I have them keep a pot of boiling water on the stove with a couple cinnamon sticks in it. Pour yourself a 12 oz glass and again add the honey and lemon. This works very well.

I will sometimes add a couple drops of lavender oil once the drink has cooled down a bit (steam vaporizes essential oils...) if the person responds well to lavender...

By get rid of the alcohol, I assume you mean the alcohol taste?

Hi - all these recipes/remedies sound excellent. I will definately copy them! Thanks. GB, I'm imagining that the alcohol in amacardon's ginger tincture is like a preservative (like in vanilla?). Once again, my Auntie Sylvia comes to mind - she used to make a lot of ginger-beer for her church's bazaars, (no alchohol in it, unless it ferments too long, then I suspect it would pack a wallop). We often used it as a means of settling nausea. Sandyj

even ginger ale helps instead of the old time 7 Up.

Right. I was just wondering what he meant by "getting rid of the alcohol".
