Interesting about ginger. I sometimes eat crystalised ginger but don't know if it stops seasick feelings as usually I don't get sick. However, my wife reckons the ginger tablets she takes does help her.
The first I ever heard about ginger stopping seasickness was about 25 years ago when I was up in the mountains in the Solomon Islands for a few months in a thatched hut. A local bloke who could speak English
pointed out a very large ginger plant. He said he was a 'bush' person and not a 'sea' person and so did not like going in boats, but if he had to travel across water
, he would dig up the root of the plant and eat some of it. And no seasickness. Wow, raw ginger root! Nowadays it is fairly common knowledge that ginger helps.
I don't know how effective is crystallised ginger, but down the road a half day is Buderim Ginger Factory which uses local ginger, supposed to be some of the best in the world, to make a range of commercial
products. I enjoy their crystallised ginger. They have one type with a touch of chili in it as well, so hot and sweet, I can't eat too much of that one.
Be interesting to hear your feedback after you have tried a few products.
