Hi everyone! I know some of you might already know this...but for some that might not...eating alittle crystalized/sugared Ginger is a great way to help with the nausea that often accompanies anxiety/panic. I buy some from my local healthfood store( it usually comes in a bag in little slices or pieces) and whenever I get nausea I just take a piece, eat it and within about 15 mins to half an hour, my nausea either goes away or is a lot less bothersome. The nausea might come back later on in the day, and if it does, I just take some more ginger. It is inexpensive too. I usually pay about $2.25-3.45 a bag. :-) I try to carry some in my purse in a zip-lock baggie, then if I am out anyplace and start to feel queasy..etc I just eat a piece and usually it calms me down enough to carry on with what I was doing.

Hi Dawn,

I have always used ginger for my nausea. I have always suffered with anxiety induced nausea and I started nibbling ginger biscuits which helped and then my boyfriend bought me some ginger tablets so I take those when I feel sick. They really do help and would recommend them. I have never tried eating crystalised ginger-will give that a go.

Take care.

I've tried some ginger gum that I bought at one of these all natural health stores. It didn't work for me. That's not to say it won't work for others, but it didn't for me.

I put ginger powder into capsules, also pepermint oil used for flavouring seems to help, about 2 drops in a glass of water

Well, I did read something one time that said gum and hard candies aren't good for those with GERD or stomach problems, come to think of it. Apparently the extra salivation is enough to get that stomach churning.

Next time I'm in the area of the health food store, I may pick up some ginger in a different form and see what happens.

I really like the crystallized ginger. It's not quite as effective as Pepto, but probably better for you than drinking a bottle of Pepto a day! (LoL) How long does crystallized ginger keep?

I am not sure how long it will keep, but I usually have mine for months. I just keep it sealed in the bag I buy it in( with a twist tie). I never heard of it going bad. So I would think it would keep for a fairly long time.
