Approach Morning Sickness Gingerly

Ginger has been used since ancient times to treat many ailments. A recent study showed that taking 250 mg of powdered gingerroot before each meal and before bed (1 g/d total) can help relieve nausea and vomiting during the first trimester of pregnancy. Chewing on a piece of gingerroot can also help alleviate the symptoms of motion sickness.
