Slippery elm for nausia

Hello: I'v had headaches for 16 years and have been sick to my stomach for about 90% of that time. A friend told me about a herb called slippery elm. It comes from the inner bark of a tree. It comes in bulk that a tea can be made. I've tried that and it tastes awful, It comes in throat lozengers, they work good for bad sore throats,I give those to my kids,they taste pretty good, and then there are the capsules. I thant god everyday for those capsules. They work wonders. I take 2 every morning, and sometimes 2 at night. It depends on how I'm feeling. I can honestly say I feel a lot better. I've taken alot of meds for nausia and this herb works the best. You can get slippery elm at any health food store. thanx

Ginger capsules also work well for nausea. They really help me with car sickness too! <IMG SRC="">

Re: Slippery elm for nausia

Slippery elm bark was used by the Ntives of North America for many years and they use it to cure a variety of ailments as it has a natural form of ASA in it. It is great for sore throats and minor headaches.
I have found for nausea the best thing is a combination of ginger and mint tea...not great tasting but it does work. I have an inner ear imbalance and need to take Dramamine if going on a plane though. Nothing else seems to work.
