Ginger is a simple and effective antidote for nausea. It is in the same botanical family as turmeric, and has been used to relieve nausea and vomiting for centuries that has been caused by illness and seasickness. Ginger also has other various health benefits.

How to make the remedy
• 2 cups of coconut milk
• 1 tsp turmeric
• 1 tsp ginger powder
• ¼ tsp freshly ground black pepper
• 1 tbsp of organic honey
To create this drink, mix all of the listed ingredients together, leaving the honey out for the end. Once everything is mixed, put the mixture into a saucepan. Heat this drink on low heat for about five minutes before adding the honey at the end.
Drinking this beverage each night before bed will help soothe any stomach pains and help to prevent them from showing up in the middle of this night. This will help ensure a quality night’s sleep.
The black pepper in this recipe increases the absorption of curcumin, which is the main and active ingredient in turmeric. Honey contains enzymes, vitamins, amino acids, and minerals that improve digestion and ease digestive irritation.
This is a very easy drink to make, and is quite soothing and delicious. It works quickly to combat heartburn and acid reflux, because it soothes the stomach and improves digestion.
