6. Ginger For Nausea
While I could find little scientific evidence to support this, in my experience ginger works well to relieve a stomach ache and nausea. NASA even used it to counter the nausea in outer space. Lifespy recommends that you sip on ginger beer and ginger soda, which contain more ginger than ginger ale.
7. Coffee For a Hangover
You overdid it last night and today you’re paying for it. You’re plagued with a splitting headache, you’re tired and lazy, so you drag yourself out of bed and make your way to the shower for work. On your way to work you stop for a Cup ‘O Joe to get your day going right. Is this a mistake or not?
Coffee is a bad hangover choice for a number of reasons. First off, one of the reasons you’re suffering in the first place is dehydration which coffee worsens. Second, coffee can add to the next day anxiety caused by a big night out. What you really need is some rest, a banana, which replenishes the potassium leached from overdrinking, and some water. If you must grab that cup of coffee just to get through your day ahead, just know that you’re just prolonging the inevitable.
8. Saltines For Morning Sickness
Saltines have long been used to cure morning sickness and according to Medline Plus, there’s certainly some accuracy in this. Morning sickness usually begins during the first month of pregnancy and continues through the 14th to 16th week. When you feel nauseated, bland foods like broth, ginger ale, and saltine crackers can soothe your stomach.
