    From what I've heard, ginger is good for upset stomachs so I suppose it would be helpful with motion sickness. Most people I know either make a ginger tea or chew on the dried ginger candies.

    Wouldn't hurt to give it a try, hope it helps.

    I saw a segment on Mythbusters where they tested various remedies for motion sickness. They found Ginger root worked better than a lot of the commercial remedies. Old time seamen used ginger root a lot.
