LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 08/10/10 -- Summer is vacation time and for many American families that means travel with the kids. According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), children 2-12 years of age are especially susceptible to motion sickness, so whether it's a plane trip to a distant destination or just a day trip to a local attraction it's wise to have a safe and natural nausea relief remedy on hand for motion sickness episodes.

Consumer Reports Health rates ginger as their "Try First" recommendation and says it has the most supporting evidence as an effective treatment for nausea. Their treatment ratings suggest antihistamines as the next best choice for nausea relief, but the CDC warns that antihistamines are not FDA approved for treatment of motion sickness in children and that over-sedation of young children with antihistamines can lead to life-threatening side effects. Ginger on the other hand is an all-natural, safe treatment for children over the age of 2 and it can even be used by pregnant women.
Health care professionals commonly recommend ginger to help prevent or treat nausea and vomiting associated with motion sickness, pregnancy, and cancer chemotherapy. It is also used as a digestive aid for mild stomach upset, as support in inflammatory conditions such as arthritis, and may even be used in heart disease or cancer.
