Can Ginger Help Migraine Nausea? Ginger People to the Rescue
I often get asked, “Can ginger help migraine nausea?” After finding Ginger People, I have been able to use many different ways to ease migraine symptoms like stomachaches, nausea, headaches, pain, and more. I was first introduced to Ginger People at Retreat Migraine and have had their ginger chews in my purse ever since. Recently, I was given the opportunity to try many of their products and my whole family has enjoyed the many ways of incorporating ginger into our diets. Questions like, “How much ginger should I take for migraine” should be discussed with your doctor. I am not a medical doctor and only tell about my experiences. Yours may be different. I was gifted these products and give my honest opinion.
Ginger for Migraine Nausea
I use ginger for migraine prevention and rescue. The health benefits of ginger are rooted in science. Benefits of ginger include anti-nausea aids in digestion, and circulation is an anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and revs metabolism.
A study published in Psychotherapy Research showed ginger to be equally as effective as prescription drug Sumatriptan at preventing the onset of migraine and reducing their severity.-Source
How to Use Ginger for Migraine Nausea
Ginger People chews are the best ginger for nausea because they are made of 10% fresh ginger. I travel with the ginger chews everywhere I go. My kids love them because they are candy. I love them because they are sweetened with cane sugar and nothing artificial. Fun fact, the ginger is locally grown near the candy factory, how fresh is that?! Flavors include original, spicy apple, peanut, spicy turmeric, double strength, super strength, and sweet ginger.
Ginger Rescue chewable ginger tablets (kid-friendly)
I now rarely go anywhere without ginger chews in with me. After packing the chews in my purse, I, now pack chewable ginger tablets too. These were new to me and I’ll always have them in my migraine tool kit from now on! I rely on a lot of natural products so I am able to travel with migraine.
During our last trip, I gave my daughter ginger tablets both on the plane and in the car. On our prior trip, she got carsick, and this time we were prepared. When we arrived home, the first thing she told her grandma was, “The trip was awesome, I didn’t even get car sick!”
I, however, was not lucky enough to go through the trip without vomiting. While traveling, I never escape migraine attacks and most of the time throw up and experience severe nausea. On my last vacation, I forgot my prescription medication for nausea and took the tablets to relieve my stomach. It was a lifesaver, or should I say trip saver, since I was able to stop throwing up and recover later that day!
Organic Ginger Juice
The organic ginger juice surprised me with its strength. It is 99% ginger juice not concentrate, with no sugar or water added. I mostly take a shot of the juice for gut health or workout recovery. I have added it to smoothies, make ginger tea, and cocktails for added health benefits and flavor. A little goes a long way with this juice. It has such a variety of uses.
Fiji Ginger Syrup
Yum! What a delicious substitute for our regular maple syrup. The Fiji ginger syrup is very subtle and gives a different flavor to our regular morning pancakes. It is a simple switch to get a little extra ginger into our morning.
The soothers didn’t last long in my house. I received the Tumeric gingerade and lemon and honey gingerade. The week I got my Ginger People package, my daughter got the flu. I’ll admit I never tried it because she drank it so fast! The small bottle provided her with enough to make two warm glasses of the soother and she really loved it. I did, however, try the Tumeric gingerade and ‘soothing’ is the perfect word for it. I plan on keeping these in my kitchen all during cold and flu season.
Turmeric Latte Mix
I’ve read about the benefits of Golden Milk and was so excited to try Ginger People’s Tumeric latte mix. I use the mix with milk and sometimes a bit of black pepper to boost bioavailability. Tumeric and ginger are good for migraine because it is anti-inflammatory, increases immune function, and detoxes the liver. I love to drink a glass before bed because it is caffeine-free and a cozy healthy way to end my evening and avoid migraine nausea.
The ginger sauces surprised me the most in the best way. The flavors I tried were ginger peanut sauce, spicy ginger teriyaki sauce, and sweet ginger chili sauce. I was thinking they would be too hot for my family but the flavors had a perfect balance of spicy and flavor. To remind you, my children are 9 and 11. We did a taste test one night with all three sauces marinated on chicken.
I was sure the peanut sauce would be a winner but it was a clear split between all of them. I heard comments like, “Wow, they all are good!” and “I can’t decide, I like them for different reasons.” I recommend buying a variety and doing your own competition. I even had them dipping their veggies in the sauces and it turned out to be a fun night of cooking together and tasting it all.
