A common travelers complaint, motion sickness can strike on any journey for work or leisure, on planes, trains, car, sea and even a theme park ride. Symptoms tend to be short lived, but present themselves as either or some of the following: nausea, vomiting, dizziness, vertigo, headache and stomach upset. Ginger is a key natural source of relief - eaten fresh, in a biscuit or a convenient capsule, it can take effect immediately and has none of the side effects that conventional motion sickness drugs can have, such as drowsiness.
Turmeric plays an opposite role to Ginger and has a preventative and maintenance use on the body. Very similar to Vitamins C and E Turmeric is a powerful antioxidant and works to ward off free radical damage. It also promotes an increase in bile secretion and the production of liver enzymes making Turmeric a beneficial natural liver protector against toxins. Turmeric's key active component curcumin, also responsible for its yellow colouring, acts as an anti-inflammatory and can help to relieve inflammation particularly related to arthritis and other joint swellings.
